Mail Art – Time to say Thank You again :)

I received some really nice mail art during the past two weeks and haven’t officially said ‘Thanks!’ yet. I really appreciate all the goodies I received from Theresa, one of my new friends. She sent lots and lots of goodies and two pieces of her art work. (We agreed on a swap a while ago, […]

Chickadee progress (and some little GIT)

…remember the little chickadee sketch from last week? Well, over the weekend I sketched it again – a little bigger (and more realistic) on watercolor paper. I love it so far 🙂 It sits right next to me while I’m typing – makes me smile when I look at it. I like to link this […]


Just some pictures from recent walks – I always find something out in nature, that inspires me. …and some work ‘in progress’: Thank you so much for stopping by! Your visit and comments mean so much to me. Cheers, Jana

Mandala by Nature & Thank you & woyww

First of all I want to let you know that our family is thinking of all who are affected by the recent tornado(s). How devastating and heartbreaking. I didn’t plan to post today, but my blog found so many new followers recently I needed to say: Thank you so very much! …for visiting, commenting, following and most […]

Another birdie…

…was visiting my sketchpad. This time it was ‘Motacilla alba’ or ‘Bachstelze’ or ‘White Wagtail’. I love them – they are so delicate and beautiful. I first sketched her in my regular journal (ball point pen) and after that another time on my watercolor pad (first pencil, then watercolor pencils). I felt like playing with my watercolor […]

Smash books – How many does a person need?!

…this question came up recently, when my older son added some candy wrappers to his book. We didn’t really contine to dig for an answer – we lost track amid all the little pieces that needed to be glued 😉 Bu I’d say as many as one can store (I am right, or am I not?!) I started these […]


Yes, it’s Wednesday again! Which means it’s time to show what’s on my desk… Thank you all so much, dear WOYWW-lovers! What fun to see all your work areas and to see you all come visit my little corner. It’s really great and I enjoy it very much. I try to visit as many links […]
