…and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you all for reading along and take the time to check what’s new on my blog. I appreciate it so much. I’m trying to write more letters to friends and family again, so in the evenings, once the kids are in bed and the kitchen is clean, I take […]


Hi everyone, Here comes a different kind of post: My children (12 and 7) like to draw and paint as well (and fold origami and paper airplanes among other things :)) Recently they had a fundraiser in school where both of them didn’t do well (selling food items that we are not really fond of […]

It’s so beautiful these days out here in the country! We were so lucky to have pleasant temperatures (and still have) during the past few weeks. It’s such a joy to walk through the backyard and take it all in. It’s hard to keep my hands off of all those colorful leaves and awesome seedpods… […]

Hi everyone, I’m on my way to post regularly again (or at least that’s my plan ;)) We moved back to Indiana this past Summer after living in Sweden for three years. It took some time to readjust, but it seems that everyone has settled now. Our kids had very different feelings about this move […]

…is finally getting some attention again lately (not so true for my blog :)) As I’m still struggling to post here as well as on my Facebook page, I keep this short, but add more pictures (it’s said they speak more anyway ;)) I hope you enjoy these pages. Please let me know what you think. Thank […]


In honor of Valentine’s Day and just because one can’t go wrong with them: Enjoy some of the hearts I painted lately. (and let me know which is your favorite :)) …as always: Thank you so much for stopping by! <3 Jana


When typing the title for this post I was suddenly uncertain of the spelling for ‘grey’… turns out both ‘gray’ and ‘grey’ are used (if you like to read about it: here is an interesting wiki article) It has been little to no sunshine around here in January, so I needed a little bit of […]


Wishing you all a very happy new year – I hope it will be full of color and health :) Thank you all for stopping by! Your visit is very much appreciated, as always. Cheers, Jana


…especially my kids have been waiting quite impatiently for the white stuff. Just before Christmas temperatures dropped and we also went on a short trip a little farther north to ski and sled. Lots of snow there! When we came back home, we found everything covered in white as well :) So, naturally, I had to […]


Christmas :) Therefore, I can’t help it and draw Holiday related things and florals. This wreath is still not done, i think, but I can’t decide what it needs. And also I’m a bit hesitant to add something, since I always think I’ll mess up (though I know I should just go for it, because […]
