Stricken kann süchtig machen

Stricken kann süchtig machen

The label of this yarn that I bought Friday says: Stricken kann schtig machen! And if you’re a knitter you understand, even if you don’t speak German… Knitting can be addictive. Very addictive. And isn’t autumn all about cozying up indoors with a yummy ball of wool and turning it into something wearable? I think […]

Art Journal Peek | Unapologetic

Dragonfly Collages

Dragonfly Collages

Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads. Erica Jong I finally cut a few new squares, smaller than before, for collage. They are about 12,5 x 12,5 centimeters (4.9 x 4.9 inches). This is the first in the series of collages I […]

I continue to doodle. There is not much to say about it, but I still like to share them, and I love when you visit and take a look. Maybe my efforts will bring a smile to your face, or a pen to your hand this afternoon… And if you want to leave me a […]
