2011 - New beginnings

Well it is here: 2011! I have a great feeling about this year as there is still so much more to do, to learn, to gain and to lose :)), especially after enjoying the Austrian cuisine which is not particulary known for its lightness.

2011 has in any event begun well for my designs. As of today a selection of my pillow collection is sold in Norway through trend setting webstore HVIIT.

I wish you will a fruitful year. Follow your path with passion. Be persistant and patient. PERSEVERANCE is key. Always remember:

"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."
Franklin Roosevelt


  1. All the best to you Mariska too! You had amazing year and I know 2011 will be even better! Yes, being persistent, patient and most of all passionate. xoxo

  2. An eye-catching image to begin with Mariska!

    Fabulous news about NVIT - always wonderful to be stocked by a trend setting store!

    I love your words of wisdom for the year and the quote is terrific!

  3. Happy New Year Mariska! It looks to have begun very well for you. You really inspire me to give my creativity a go and the Roosevelt quote is right, you have to keep on keeping on. It's difficult at times but you really are an inspiration :)


    XoXo, yhosie

  5. Great quote by Mr. Roosevelt and I just watched 'Bridget Jones' Diary' last night for the 'umpteenth' time! love that scene with her 'granny panties!' - Have a wonderfully creative and prosperous new year! and yes, perserverance is a must! :))
