Daily life

Planning out my day in the morning is a productivity booster. // Little springflowers we found on our morining walk.

Coffee and white porclaine rabbits. // Painting with my girls makes everyday special.

Colorful and happy tea package. // Perfect spot for my painting.

Fresh lemon water is the perfect energy kickstarter. // Being creative is equal to making big mess all over.

Tutorial for clay flowers

I made some hairclips, rings and ear studs with roses I made out of lightweight clay. Just look the video if you want to see how I made them and then do some for yourself too. I love the rawness and open ends, so I didn't worked the edges with sandpaper.

A sketch a day, Week 5

Practice is what moves forward, I feel to make two steps ahead and one back. This is week 5 of my daily sketches and it feels so good to be consistent, especially since I'm seeking my place in some other areas. Working steadly in the direction my dreams are made of.

Daily life

Getting the most important work of the day done straight in the morning makes everything so much easier. / Divine light in our living room.

Carring flowers at home as a first sign of springtime that is arriving. / Yes for being brave and starting new things.

Calm afternoon time with coffee is my favourite. / My grandfather was a photographer, I adore him and this where his grandparents, what an incredible gift to have this very old family picture as a keepsake.

More time to make big plans. / Airy living room space.

I found this mistletoe at the lake we live near by. / Vintage playing cards I found at the thrift store are the perfect inspiration.

A book and cardset based on feelings

Let me tell you a little more about my project and my story.

My life wasn't always this love fest. I took the decision to focus on the good side of life and to have a positive view of all what I'm doing. This lead me to wonderful things, I get to know my husband, moved to Italy, we had a second daugther and I learned a new language, italian.
We also moved back again and I'm learning french now.
If I believe in something, I want to go for it. There where just a lot of years in between my life, where I limited myself. I hold back from truly believe in me. I just had always problems to fit in and had my focus so much on being seen or heard. I was hiding and longing to be found.

But there is no one better to see us, then our self, no one knows us better then we know our self.
We have to stand up for our ideas and spread them around the world to be found of others. There is no such magic that this happens overnight and something or someone steps in our life and does the work we are meant to do.

I learned to shift my thinking and see things in a positive light. I became a mother when I was 19 years old. This unfortunately marked me in society and how I was seen in the eyes of so many. For me it was the biggest gift. It pulled me out of a life where lots of shit was going on. Drinking, drugs and giving away all my power.
Becoming a mother forced me to take the responsibility in my own hands. To build a life that isn't brand marked from what is the norm, far away from what others expect or think of me.

Everyone can do it! We have the power to become what we want. We have the freedom to decide and step out of situations that don't serve us and hold us little. We can choose happiness, love and joy. We can choose to dance and we have the strength to take the power over our on life in our own hands.

I love to learn and explore in a playful way, to understand myself better. This guided me to this idea of making a card set and writing a book.

A Loveletter, The Paper Love Blog Hop

As an Artist, paper lets my heart skip a beat.
I really love paper.
The white, thick and smooth.
The thin, transparent and milky.
The natural, selfmade and structured.

Paper is what can hold stories. In form of books, photographs and art.
Blank paper gives us space to create, whatever we want.
We can bring our thoughts out of our mind and into reality, we can save the moment with a photograph on paper we treasure and to express how we feel with colors.

Writing is such a powerful thing, it can help us to be heard. We can use journalling to clean up our head and we can use it to write our future, to make plans and goals. To attract what we want, to make our visions become a reality.

I loved my grandfather, when I was little I was a lot around him. He was a photographer and crafter. I treasure his photographs, they carry a breeze of the past and let me understand his world he lived in.

If we let go of pressure, tension and all kind of selfdoubts and just let flow the colors, lines and structures we can create on paper, this strong medium is the essential for expression.

I love books. Pages and pages of wisdom and stories. Reading a book is like diving into another world and timetravelling. I love stories, and everyone of us has our very unique and beautiful story to share. We all are unique and we all can take a blank sheet of paper and create with it whatever fits best for us.

The PaperLove Blog Hop is a celebration of all things paper! Follow the links to discover more bloggers who love paper and use it to inspire and delight. And if you want to explore a whole world of paper, and stretch your paper passion further with a host of creative projects, why not join the innovative new online course PaperLove (starts March 31).
