Jeanette Carlstrom's Art

I have thought of this website for ages but never really got to it. I love my blog and will keep it up until my fingers can no longer type. The NEW website is for my art only and not all this nonsense about every day "stuff". The new site is also for gallery owners, customers and anyone that might be interested in my art. My plan is to find some galleries on the magical Big Island of Hawaii to show and sell my art. I have it all figured out and will make a trip back again soon for inspiration, photography and to visit galleries.

Make your blog a book!!!

I found this online today and can't stop thinking about it!!! What a great idea.... I might just have to give it a try. They let you upload your blog so you can see the entire book before grabbing your credit card. Just love it since I am a book lover and would love to have some of my older posts in print.

Hawaii trip is over...

Our family trip to Hawaii is over... it was lovely like usual...

It is the one place where I could live other than here in California. I might be born in Sweden and miss my family over there every day but living there again? I think I would choose Hawaii.... 

The Big Island of Hawaii is perfect for me in every single way and I can go into deep details of why but instead of boring you to tears I will show you some brand new art inspired by Hawaii..

Handmade bags!!! Finally here...

Funny how everything I do takes about twice and long as planned...

The bags are finally here!!!

You can find them for SALE at Jeanette's Folk Art and/or in my Etsy shop

These bags are designed and made by me for you, your ipad, iphone, chargers, makeup, pens and anything else floating around your handbag. All bags are made out of top quality fabric. They are all handmade and designed by me so therefore a one of a kind item.

 The flowers are made out of fabric and attached with a pin so they can be removed and placed in a different spot on your bag or even on your jacket if you like that:)

I am listing individual flower pins shortly...

The ipad bag is a "sleeping bag" as I call it... perfect for your sleeping ipad, keeping it safe and secure with padding and soft fabric, closed with a nice button.

The iphone bag is a favorite design of mine with a small pocket on the outside for a credit card or two, some cash and your phone on the inside. Grab this from your bag for a fast dash into Starbucks or the grocery store leaving your big bag behind... I love mine :)

a nice pin attached on the back so you can put in on next to anything. My daughter loves them on a headband ;)
