Today was the first day of the bookfair in Gothenburg, it was so much fun. one of my seminars was a panel discussion about making illustrated fact books 😍👆swipe to see how it looked in real life 😅 and then on the rest of the slides is information for followers in sweden where you can find me tomorrow and saturday if you like 😊😘 ! #bokmässan #naturochkultur #majasäfström
Here are some glimpses of the two books that i have made 😊
And tomorrow I am going to the book fair in Gothenburg to talk about them! my schedule for the fair is below if any of you are around and would like to listen and say hi!
12:00-12:45 Att illustrera faktaböcker
13:30 BULT (swedish authors associations youth section) presents me, since i won their price "best book debute" for my first book "Fantastiska Fakta om djur"
13:00-13:20 "Att skriva fakta för barn"
15:00-15:30 Signering och högläsning, eksjö bokhandels monter .
10:20-10:40 "Fakta för barn"
I am happy about going but also so devastated that some real life Nazis (not a joke, i wish it was ) are spreading fear in and around the fair. Its so unreal and scary.
On friday i will make an appearance at the alternative book fair, making a live illustration. look out for it in my stories!

I made paper cubes with my cats!!! 😍 (as you might have seen in my stories, sorry about the spam but i got a bit obsessed with how cool they turned out 🙈😄) they are like memo pads but not sticky and with SO many pages they make a cube!! every desk needs one I am telling you that! 😋 addition since a few asked: Yes they can be bought! link to my webshop in my profile !
greetings from my life 😅
When I was pregnant, there were whole days where I would only eat pasta (I am talking about breakfast, lunch, dinner..!! ). That's why it's a pleasure for me to illustrate the genius simplicity of this super classic recipe, and how it brings families and friends together for beautiful moments in life! @barilla
