- Something nice in the mail: a box of delicious home-made chocolates, courtesy of my awesome brother.
- Something I’m working on: a little academia-inspired valentine printable. (Here is the one I made last year).
- Something to listen to: I’ve been catching up on While She Naps episodes. I found the one with Thomas Knauer about quilting really interesting. I also started listening to the Creative Pep Talk podcast. Warmly recommended! This and this episodes are my favorite so far.
- Something inspiring: Nicole Smeltzer’s science illustrations, Rachel Grant’s collages, and Sophie Miller’s embroideries.
Have a lovely weekend!
This week has been so full of beautiful pastel tones that I didn’t care to try capturing something “vibrant” for the photo challenge.
I’ve been half-busy, half-lazy, and somehow didn’t post anything.
Here are some photos of yesterday’s sunset walk, and a few things I enjoyed this week.
Something fun to do with kids. I’m pretty sure I’d find that fun for myself, too.
Something half-photo, half-film. Love it.
Something I’ve been listening to while sketching. The reader is awesome.
Have a good weekend!
Something sweet for breakfast, post birthday.
Speaking of podcasts, I also enjoyed listening to Phoebe Wahl telling the story behind her first picture book.
What little things did you enjoy this week?
After a somewhat unsatisfactory attempt to make a bunch of hand-lettered new year cards the past few days, I took a break from doodling today and just cleaned my box of watercolors. Meanwhile I happily caught up on two and a half episodes of the Craft Sanity Podcast, which if my calculations are correct adds up to a good two hours.
Logically, I made the following resolution for 2016: mix colors on the palette exclusively (not in the pots – ahem).
It’s not exactly the kind of painting productivity that I had envisioned for this week, but that’s still one thing out of the way. A clean and bright box of watercolors is as good a start as any to a new year, isn’t it?
Some clouds, for a change, and temperatures back to reasonable Nordic levels. Today’s another busy day. This morning was for drawing, which went pleasantly smoothly. Here’s to a new sketch ready for another version of this guy! The afternoon, as always, started with a coffee – first, coffee – and then, subtitles. Tedious, most certainly, but satisfying. I’m having a good day. Are you?
