lil' card...

So... there I was... helping this pigeon chick decorate for the party...
No... that's not what happened. Actually... I ran out of  'thank you cards' (that I put along with the prints into to the envelops)... and so I decided to make my own... 'cause I can':)
Hope it's a bright, sunshiny day tomorrow... so I could make some good photos of the watercolors to share with you later:)

today's plans...

Me and my tiny Margo (who's home - stuck with me and a cold) are going to watercolor our buns off today. I'm thinking ... CUPs:) All sorts of cups. I'll pretend to be a ceramist with big plans. Not sure who Margo would be pretending to be. We'll see.

autumn leaves...

Autumn induced hallucination... I mean - pattern:) Falling pretty, ornate leaves.
The real autumn, outside my window is a rainy cold mess of brown and grey. I felt like dressing it up a ted (right after drying it up with an extra fluffy towel)

Sitting in the waiting room at my doctor's office yesterday.... going through 'Today's Parent' magazine... I've stumbled upon this familiar illustration:) I completely forgot about it (with so much going on)... and it was a pleasant surprise.
p.s.: winter is coming and there's nothing we could do about it ... So... don't forget about vitamin D:)

Margo's birthday invitation:)

Time flies. I feel like just yesterday I was making Margo's 5th birthday invitation... and here I am again. One day (soon) she'd be too old for these ... and I'll miss it... but for now, I better get ready for a house invasion by 12 snotty little monsters powered by cake:)

Stig Lindberg... the book...

I finally got my hands on the copy of this Swedish treasure - Stig Lindberg book (Stig Lindberg - Tusenkonstnaren).
Squealing with excitement like a total Scandinavian design junkie (that I am) I've gone over all the pages several times... wishing I could read Swedish. It's Ok tho... because I see it the way a kid would - as an amazing picture book. Hard to imagine that this tremendous body of work belongs to one man. Feeling very inspired now:)

tea time for the soul...

I really missed blogging! Really!
I'm rearranging life (as I know it) and trying to spend way less time in-front of the the glowing screen... since the universe has blessed me with carpal tunnel syndrome. That pushy universe. I'm still cross with it.
Among new things that I'm getting used to is the - luck of coffee. I've quit it (yes, I'm sad about it) and substituted it with tea. I don't know why being addicted to a hot morning beverage is such a must for me... but it is:)
Anyway... I'll try to see you as much as I can. I believe in positive thinking.

happy birds...

These birds are happy. Happy that they aren't ending up as main dish on some dinner table. They are just a pattern:)
Still on a break. Leaving to Prince Edward county tomorrow morning for a long long Thanksgiving weekend.

see you soon:)

What an inconsistent blogger I've been lately. How can I be leaving you hanging like that? Well... I'm sorry... I admit, I've been prioritizing against you. I'm cleaning up the shop, finishing up some loose ends and getting my health and my life back on the right track... So - don't hold it against me. I'll be back soon - new and improved:)

different kind of pet...

I don't really know what is it with me and the pigeons... but I find them hilarious and fun to draw. Looks like this one had one too many doughnuts and can't take a crumb more:)

make time for things you love... whatever they are:)

New print in my etsy shop. Make time for tea. Make time for things you love. I'm going to try and do that this weekend:)
