On the streets of spring

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, […]

Time to use these Cute Fabrics

It’s easy to hold our great ideas hostage, or to talk them away into things we’ll do someday, or wanted to do once, but its so much more thrilling to free them and watch them take flight. Mary Beth Maziarz I am working on a little sewing project that will become a gift. Schhy, it’s […]

Try to restrain yourself

Trying to restrain yourself is hard if you ask me. I’m a maximalist, not a minimalist. I like clutter (but not the dust that lives between everything). I like lots of choices (but not having to go out to buy that one extra thing not in my stash). I like filling a journal page to […]

What I Wore today

What I wore today, in drawing. First I was doing an exercise to create a 6 minute diary page l Linda Barry, author of the book What It Is (that I own and totally recommend, it’s awesome). She wrote: Why is it so hard to keep up a diary? IT ISNT! Not if you […]

She suggests that you assemble a group of materials that you find interesting or challenging and primarily use those materials. That’s what I have done here. It’s about getting started, and I really […]

The Madonna Embroidery

The Madonna Embroidery – A mother’s love. In Christian imagery everything has a symbolic meaning; the colours, gestures, people and flowers. But to me, this is not firstly an image of Mary and Jesus, but an international symbolic image of a mothers love, and that’s what I’ve named the piece. A mother’s love. You can […]

A house in the dark

I have had this white metal house for years, but not until tonight it occurred to me to open the bottom and stick a candle inside it. I’m so glad I did. I have an endless fascination with the lit candles and the way light moves, reflects and warms us. Especially in a dark Swedish […]

My Meta Postcards

Today I’m presenting all my postcards, in one big blog post. I’m calling them meta postcards because it was suggested that postcards picturing postal stamps are just that, and I have to agree. Plus, I happen to love all things meta: writing about writing, scheduling in time for planning and documenting your journals that are […]
