bored already?



if you think now I don´t do anything else than doodling all day, you might be right ;o)
Another one for the group

I almost forgot how much fun it is to doodle each day. It´s not only a little exercise in drawing and in being more conscious of what I wear, but I also love this kind of documentation process.

Probably these little drawings won´t captivate me for the rest of my life, but it´s nice to think about what if they would...

I´d also love to draw my days, like Gemma Correll already does so very well.

playing @ home


Update: todays "what I wore today"

**************************************************************




I´m back from a weekend that felt like most of the time spent on the highway and it was all about stop and go.

Today I´m playing at home with doodling, drinking tea and making tomatoe sauce from a few kilos homegrown tomatoes. The "what I wore today" drawing is already a few days old.
Have to catch up

Sweet Nina van de Goor from ninainvorm which you might know because of her beautiful screenprinted ceramics and great home style pics blogged about our viking melamine plates. Thank you Nina!

Everything lives and has a soul


update: "what I wore today"

*****************************************************




the more days I spend on this planet, the more I know that everything lives and has a soul.


Maybe a last "what I wore today" drawing later that day.

I will be off a few days for a family visit.

Have a good time and see you again next week!

Premiere: 2 posts @ one day



Inspired by Fee , I decided to particpate in the "What I wore today" - Flickr group.... probably not every day, but from time to time. A good reason to draw more...

paper bags





I made some little paper bags for tiny gifts or so from recycled packing paper. These little bags are really easy peasy and done within a minute.

The stamping dice made me happy this week. It´s based on some of my viking drawings and I love to use it. Thinking about to order some more for my shop. What do you think?

Have a relaxing weekend!
