Hi there - I'm Gaby!

My grandmother's house in the mountains was my refuge in a magical childhood. We lived among the trees, picking pine nuts, watching the stars, and watching our mothers and grandmother knitting by the fire. I can still smell the pine trees, the wood burning, and the orange cake baking. These memories have shaped who I am, valuing simplicity, connection with nature, purity of imagination, and a love of handmade art. It's only now that I realize I was in Tomteland without knowing it.

Life and its challenges took me away from those magical moments. But motherhood, my most fantastic adventure, created a need to reconnect with that place, bring it closer to my boys, and live a simpler life full of love and purpose. 

Inspired by flowers, animals, nature, movies, and books, I'm constantly transported back to those childhood moments. That's how Tomte Studio was born. It was driven by the mission to bring fun into people's lives, helping them escape the world's noise and find solace in Tomteland, a world of creativity, color, and joy.

Meet Tomte, Our Scandinavian Guardian!

I am captivated by the magic of Scandinavia, which goes beyond stunning designs. It is a way of life that celebrates simplicity and connection with nature. This is where I discovered the mystical figure of the Tomte. 

In Scandinavian folklore, the Tomte (also known as a Tonttu or Nisse) is a kindred spirit and a home guardian who watches over families, especially the little ones. These mischievous yet merry sprites are believed to bring good luck and protection to children, adding a touch of magic to everyday life. 

Imagine your home sparkling with a touch of Tomte magic, brought to life with our enchanting foundation paper piecing patterns.
