it's sandra juto

"I love the inbetween seasons most, for example when it's not really Summer anymore, but also not Fall yet. I guess it has to do with my love for changes."

Svoj blog sem pričel pisati pred dobrimi šestimi leti. Nisem vedel v kaj se spuščam in kaj bo prinesel. Vem pa, da sem takrat želel postati  Sandra Juto. Fotografije na njenem blogu so bile vedno nadvse navdihujoče. Tudi danes v Berlinu išče ulice, najboljše kavarne, se sprehaja po parkih, riše, štrika, kvačka in jé zelo fotogenične obroke. Prav tak je tudi njen dom. Želim, da jo spoznate. 

ABOUT

"I grew up in the north of Sweden, pretty close to the Arctic Circle. At the age of 20 I moved to Gothenburg, south of Sweden, where I studied a lot and after 12 years there, I decided to move to Berlin. That is now a bit more than 6 years ago. My superpower would be teleportation, that's how much I miss my family in Sweden.

What I love the most about this city, Berlin, is that there are always things going on, it's brutal and loving at the same time and a very good place to be for restless people. If you visit Berlin – make sure to bring your most comfortable shoes because however you do, you end up walking a lot. The blocks are enormous. I tell everyone this and so many have ended up coming here with brand new shoes and their first purchase has been band aids."



LIFE & WORK

"I start every day with a walk and 4 espresso. Apart from that I don't have a strict routine, I work with so many different things and I need changes to stay inspired. I can't really remember when I started yarn. I remember watching my grandmother knitting and I tried to do what she did, I have very blurry memories of this – maybe I was about 5 years old. 

My biggest source of inspiration is to take a walk around the city with my camera, it honestly beats any website, Instagram profile or blog. I look up to kind and self aware people. I like to scroll through the Instagram Explore page, especially to get some food inspiration, there are so many amazingly talented people out there! I love social media (obviously, I've been blogging since 1998), for me it's a great way to share what is a result of my restless energy (taking pictures, drawing, crocheting etc). I use social media mostly to share what inspires me, but of course I promote my work and shop every now and then – it's the only place where I »advertise« my stuff.

Of course it's important to surround myself with things and people that inspire me, anything else is a waste of time, I would say. I love my good old DSLR camera from many years ago, along with a 50mm lens."



ADVICE

"Listen to yourself, if your body screams no about a certain matter, it's highly recommended to also say no. My life changed when I learned to say NO without feeling bad. It's still a work in progress. The WOW I feel when I follow my heart instead of trying to please someone else, life changing.

In 10 years I see myself as a more stable person who knows myself better. Maybe with a dog in my life. My dream job is to have fun at work, there's nothing more draining than disliking your occupation. I haven't made a bucket list so far, but maybe that could be the number 1 on it – to make a bucket list."
