envelope art

And what do you think of this Susan? ;- )

young me / now me

I have a new photo task for all of you:
pick a picture showing you as a child and then try to recreate it.
(if you need some inspiration - just google image search "young me, now me"...)

have fun!

Susan's apartment

Susan and I got to have a few hours together "Knutsel-ing" (I know that's probably the wrong word- sorry Janien) over the weekend. We talked more than we actually made things but could not help flashing back to Camilla's studio- everyone chatting, poking around, laughing, eating Angela's wonderful meals, soaking up all the creative energy, Morran doing her best to just take a nap in the middle of it all....
I know Camilla and Angela are doing it again in the spring and I am so disappointed that I'm not going to be able to make it this time around.
I am hoping that this next class goes really really well and all of Angela's flights are smooth and she never gets charged for her bags and there is a whole new group of great people and Camilla is so inspired that she just has to do another workshop so that I will in fact have another chance to get back to Gothenburg and meet her, Angela and Morran again... and maybe you too??

PS don't you love Susan's little Valentine banner- she has a really awesome pad :)

there is hope...

yesterday was Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil said: "expect an early spring"!

(don't laugh at me, he was right last year)

bowl of stuff

I always forget I have this bowl...

Things are getting biblical here!

I was sitting at my dining room table, trying to get some work done since I am working from home today due to the weather (snow, rain, ice, broken trains, sliding buses, etc.). Then I hear this loud sound of stuff falling out of the sky. Like the sound of a massive rainstorm, but harder and more crackly. So I ran downstairs to check it out, and this (pictured) is what is falling from the sky and bouncing off of everything. And, I am pretty sure it is now thundering!

my poor bowl

oldie but goldie

I know it's old, but I love those wrapped trees by Christo and Jeanne-Claude (1998).
