Paper, Ink and Pen

  Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. Inktober has been created by artist Jake Parker in 2009 because he wanted to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.   I haven’t done ink drawings in a longContinue reading “Paper, Ink and Pen”

Doodling to Become Zen

  I´m sure many of you did feel just as stressed out over the last holidays as I did. Which if you think of it, is ridiculous really, we should feel happy and excited, like we did when we we´re kids. I mean – it´s the holidays, right? So, to help me get into aContinue reading “Doodling to Become Zen”

The Changing Seasons – February 2018

  It´s the end of the month and thus time for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons invented by Max at Cardinal Guzman and now hosted by my dear friend Su at Zimmerbitch. The month of February started for me with noticing that my passport was soon going to expire and I quickly went toContinue reading “The Changing Seasons – February 2018”

The Bowl on the Laundry Basket

    I´m sure you will all agree with me when I say that even if we first thought that with blogging it would be all about ourselves, we learn very fast that actually it´s all about connections, friendships and learning from others. For me blogging is also very much about inspiration – both, aboutContinue reading “The Bowl on the Laundry Basket”

If you are in doubt how to pronounce scone the right way, here´s a funny little poem that illustrates how itContinue reading “Indulgence versus Restraint”

Things I Bought Today

The Book Lover´s Tag

  I´ve been nominated for The Book Lover´s tag and am perfectly thrilled about it because books are the one thing I could talk about for hours. Really, I mean it. I have caused many people to regret their foolishness by asking me any question related to that matter. 😉 Many, many thanks to myContinue reading “The Book Lover´s Tag”

More Summer Companions: Shoes

  Last week I forgot something very important on my list of summer companions – shoes!!! Luckily two of my wonderful friends here – Osyth from Half Baked in Paradise and Ann from Muddling Through My Middle Age – mentioned them in their lovely comments in my last post and so I decided to quickly sketch the pairsContinue reading “More Summer Companions: Shoes”

Summer Companions

  I can feel that summer is coming to an end here in the northern hemisphere. It seems to come earlier each year and instead of gently drifting of to autumn it will be winter all of a sudden, at least that´s what happened in the last years and I don´t have reason to believeContinue reading “Summer Companions”
