I got art supplies now

I think I’ve been whining in the wish list and some other posts about how poor I am. I feel poor money wise, but I shall stop complaining. It just that… Oh, well you know! Internet and art magazines are the best places to see beautiful, cool and amazing stuff that you really get cravings […]

Welcome Aphrodite!

Welcome Aphrodite!

Welcome Aphrodite, my new plant and all you other new stuff that decorates our home! Here is what’s new: 1. Dad gave me two new flowers from his collection of orchids.

Postcards for the boys…

…and artist trading cards in the mail from the girls! Tomorrow is both my fathers and my brothers names day.

Now I’m back at my own lovely home and my parents, who came on a short visit this weekend, have been sent home again. Things are back to normal, almost – and I can lean back (after doing the laundry, cleaning up, sorting new and old stuff, etc etc etc today) and read the Mary […]
