Watch me on YouTube!
Creativity lives in my blood and I call myself an artist. On Monday I chatted on Instagram Live with Sanna Forslund in Sweden about all things art and chocolate.
Here is the link to watch the interview on Sanna’s YouTube Channel where you can see our whole conversation. You can also catch the replay of the conversation on Sanna’s IG page @cacaosana.
We talked chocolate, judging chocolate, art, savouring chocolate, The Chocolate Notebook, my line of chocolate inspired jewellery pieces and some of the new items I have coming out, including the cacao flowers I wrote about last week.
We had a great conversation about how chocolate can be an inspiration and I am sure by now you know that #ChocolateIsMyMuse.
Here is a photo that my partner took as I was talking with Sanna. Sanna is a chocolate educator, taster, and writer. We have known each other through Instagram for several years and it was lovely to sit down and chat all things art and chocolate with her. We have also taken some chocolate educator/education classes together, as we both know there is always more to learn about chocolate.
I am always amazed when I start pulling out my art pieces that there is such a wide variety of items. From sterling silver and bronze jewellery, paper products, illustrating The Chocolate Notebook, fabric art, and Happy Mail for Chocolate Lovers there are so many different and fun ways that I express and share my art, and honestly I kinda forget something when they are all just sitting in their separate places in my office or studio.
This year I also made some Advent Calendars using many techniques as the year progressed and those have been so much fun. Some of them are available now, some have already been sold and are off to their new homes for the holiday season. You can find everything new in the shop here.
I hope that you too find some creativity and chocolate in your week. I’d love to know how you create things, whether baking, crafting, singing, playing, it all counts. Let me know in the comments below what your creative outlet is.
