Creativity in some form is a life-long, joyous, satisfying, essential ingredient in life.*

Fasten your seat belts and let’s travel the world!

Last Monday I posted my answers to the questions in the Around the World Blog Hop, and hinted that I’m sending them on to two other awesome bloggers, Zom and Kim. Today they’ve posted their answers and I’m going to tell you a bit about them and send you of to read their answers.

Map envelopes I made

A visit to Australia…

Zom Osborn lives in Goonengerry on northern NSW (east coast of Australia) near Byron Bay. She has wallabies jumping around in her garden, and giant lizards visit from time to time. I have never been to that part of the world, and it sounds (and looks by her photos) very exotic to me. She is a full time artist, who paints the most magical pictures where you always can detect a hidden fairy tale or story. They’re like children book illustrations to me, and I love the story that I can’t help to read into them…

Zom (doesn’t she have the coolest name?) is writing about her own creative/art/writing practice in this post: Why I do what I do!

and a trip to Canada…

Kim Werker is another favorite blogger, crafter and writer. Kim lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, which is in Canada, another part of the world that I’ve never visited. Canada has a similar climate to Sweden I think, so that is not as exotic (to me) as Australia, but almost as far away across the globe. How cool it is that our blogs makes it feel like we’re next door neighbors!

Kim doesn’t share much craft on her blog, but I have been following it for years because I love every post she writes. She doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects, she recommend great books and has lots of opinions. And because often her writing is thought provoking, interesting and ring very true to me. I have a serious writer envy when I read her, wishing that English came as easy to me as it does to her, but alas, I still struggle with this language. Anyway…

Kim has also written a post about her own creative/art/writing practice, here:
