New Mail Art and Glue It Tuesday

I can’t seem to have enough postcards ready to be sent. These days I find myself working on index cards (4×6) if I have a spare minute. Fun and rewarding – as I’m sure that I’ll receive some pretty art in return once mine fly out 🙂 Here are a few that can go out soon (let […]

Vintage Butterfly – Free printable

I had to ‘record’ the sight of the first butterfly of the season somehow 🙂 Last Friday my younger son and I walked home from his preschool and there it was: fluttering by, a very yellow butterfly. ahhhh 🙂 It’s almost May, I think that was the longest I had to wait to see a […]

Mail Art: IN & Link Love

I’m so glad I decided to start sending handwritten letters and Mail Art again. It is so rewarding! Every time I close an envelope, I feel to have done a little bit to brighten someones day. And be sure, if you ever send something my way, you will brighten my day not only a little […]


I know, that’s what I thought when I first saw it! I liked the idea of taking pics of ones workdesk – I took pictures in the past, just ‘for the record’ sometimes when crafting with my kids. Well, now I have a place where I can share it 🙂 Check it out, if you […]

Birds on Glue It Tuesday

I need to work  on catching up on my art journal (my goal is to do a spread for each week of the year). As mentioned before, I went to Stockholm two weeks ago. I wanted to incorporate a map somehow (I hadn’t been at that location before, so surely I needed a map to […]

Link Love & Stockholm

This really is my post for the Link Love! If you prefer to simply check the links, just scroll to the end of this post.  I had no intentions to write so much, it just happened 😉 Thank you all for stopping by! Last week I went to Stockholm – by train, by myself. This may sound […]

Mail Art: Out and Ready to go

This week was very busy with work (for my freelance jobs) so far. But I can’t stand not posting anything – I miss it too much! So at least here’s a little something about the recent mail art I prepared. I usually have several pieces in progress these days. My plan is to post them […]

Friday and Link Love

“Please join me in the campaign to give virtual hugs to our fellow creative bloggers. Link to blogs that you love to read, link to blogs that you’ve just discovered, link to blogs that are growing but not yet well known. ” That’s a quote from Tammy’s page and I simply like the idea. I […]

Art by Nature II

Perhaps you remember my ‘Art by Nature’ post from last week. This is the follow up with the promised pictures. These are all taken on a lake not far from here. We spent quite some time on the ice this year (on several lakes, on the Baltic Sea – just walking or skating or cross […]

ATCs for Earth Day Swap

I  liked the theme for this swap and since I found the information in time, I got working. (I tend to find out about swaps or other things I like only to find that the deadline has already passed or  is too close to be met.) Anyway – I thought I sketch some twigs that […]
