It looks like I never posted this little guy here – well, it’s about time! When I sketched the hedgehog, my younger son claimed him immediately – even though it was just a pencil sketch at that time. I’m so happy when my children like what I draw or paint, this┬ámakes it extra special… I […]


…it’s nothing new by now, that I’m not posting many blog posts these days. But at least here’s a little friendly doodle for you :) Wishing you all a nice Friday! Thanks for stopping by, Jana


I find myself sketching quite often in my little sketch book these days… even though Fall brings grey and rainy skies lately, the colorful foliage and fruits are beautiful nevertheless.   I hope you enjoy Fall – or Spring, if you’re in the Southern hemisphere… Thanks for stopping by! Cheers, Jana


I haven’t paid too much attention to my blog lately. I blame the Summer break and recent travel. At least I’d like to post a few pictures of some of my art journal pages. If time allows, I will post more over the next few months. If you are active on Instagram, I’d be happy […]


…to Norway! I’m excited and can’t wait. I hope you don’t mind another break in posting ;) It’s going to be a ‘device-less’ vacation for our family. Well, we WILL take our cameras, of course, but no online connecting thingies… Please check my Instagram for more pictures, if you like. Thanks for stopping by! Cheers, […]

…and it has been a month since I posted the last time!!! This can’t be true… So here at least a few snapshots of some things I did these past few weeks (besides being consumed by the daily grind) I post much more on Instagram these days. Come on over, if you’re on IG :) […]


I was in a not so bright mood last weekend and painting with pink DID help to get into a better mood again. :) This is just a little bit bigger than an ATC. I used recycled cardboard from a cereal box, scraped some acrylic paint as first layer and then the kitty just happened. […]


Here is a glimpse of what I was doing a week before Easter: It’s not really on my desk currently the way it shows here. Now I’m working on the pictures on my laptop (those in progress pictures are more interesting, don’t you think?! :)) It was very tricky to finish this project: I only […]


It seems I can take a breather after an intense project (I do freelance work as translator) and I can take time to share my desk again! With all of you who are not familiar with WOYWW, check it out :) I’m in the middle of preparing some goodies for a bird theme swap (Jen, […]
