The frying pan story on how I went to the retail store Clas Ohlsson to buy a frying pan and happened to pick up some Promarkers and a marker pad on my way out and how that ended up in a webshop, is now featured in their member magazine Classe.
As the article tells, it became a way of meditating, and it still is today. It gives me peace of mind and puts a smile on my face. I know that I’m in the flow when the focus is on deciding what nuance I should choose in coloring a Crumelurs. And usually, it also generates some creative ideas of various kinds.
The prototypes of products with Crumelurs that I posted for fun on Facebook right before Christmas 2019, started a demand for Crunmelurs for Christmas shopping, and I was overwhelmed. I ordered more merchandise and sold online through Facebook, and I also ended up selling Crumelurs products at two Christmas fairs in my home town.
That made me put up a webshop in January 2020, that is still under development, and I was asked to sell my Crumelurs products in the art- and restaurant store at Anita på Börringekloster. In February 2020, I was accepted as one of the companies at Krinova Incubator and Science Park in Kristianstad, and I’m looking forward to where that will take me.
And then came the global pandemic and changed the scenario for all of us. Times are challenging, and these are also great times for being creative and finding new ways and solutions. We’re changing our behaviors, and the online world is taking a giant leap forward as being integrated with the offline world. The new normal is increased shopping online, and at the same time, we’re saving the environment and increasing time for leisure, simplifying our lives.
The Crumelurs are step by step moving out into the world, and next week is the first international shipment leaving with Crumelurs heading to Finland.
Stay healthy and safe, wash hands, and, I’m hoping that the Crumelurs keeps on putting a smile on your face, keeping your spirit high.
