Inspired by Fall

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… […]

Fall is here as well as a new post – finally ;)

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 […]

My art journal

…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 […]

October art

Besides the pictures already posted, here are some more to all of you who are not following on Instagram. Another peek into my art journal: Calligraphy practice – I’d like to fit more of this into my schedule…   A card I painted for a very dear friend’s birthday – she received it meanwhile, so it’s […]

Back to blog

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 […]

The Art Journal peek – Documented Life weeks 7 & 8

I’d like to share the spread of weeks 7 and 8 in my little handmade journal. It includes some goodies that I received from my friend Gabriele (her blog is worth a visit! artatag) mostly stamps on tissue paper – the pattern left of the pink birdie (one of my stickers :)) and the pens […]

The Art Journal peek…

Since I am not posting much here on my blog these days (instagram – that’s where I am posting much more), I wanted at least to catch up and show you the spread of week  5 and 6 in my little handmade journal. It includes some tags (from our favorite brand of gingerbread – hmmmm, […]

Art Journal or Documented Life or…

..whatever you name your journal, I just love my little square journal. I have two more weeks to fill, then I need to add more signatures. I started with one signature only and have the plan to add on as the year progresses. I’d like to try different kind of papers to find the perfect […]

The Birds’ Wedding

Did you know that there was such a thing as the ‘Birds’ Wedding’ celebration tradition?! In honor of this tradition may I present my collection of bird stickers: I drew quite some birds last year and had 14 of them printed on stickers. I really like the result – vivid colors! Wonderful 🙂 (They are […]

First post of the year & woyww & ppf

…with a glimpse on my desk and into my handmade calendar for 2014. I hope to be able to post to woyww and ppf more regularly this year! I love to see what’s going on on other desks and easels 🙂 I wish I could provide nicer, more crisp pictures. The light situation isn’t the best here […]
