Lavlav

It's been a while since I got this wonderful package in my real mailbox, a huge treat of excitement and surprises sent to me all the way from Argentina by my dear friend Toi (yes, she is the one I made my first Mrs Fox for).

Anyways... this beautiful parcel (gorgeous envelope, I shall keep it forever) contained so many treats I was shocked. It was like Christmas opening and discovering all of them. I am not going to talk about all of them only about the tiny and extremely special one.

It is Lavlav, cute little bunny she made just for me. His name comes from having lavender inside his tummy and because of which I can smell him all the way from the pocket I carry him around with me. He is one truly courageous little bunny, so brave in fact, that the first thing he did was jump in my very own cup of tea. I guess the scent of vanilla and caramel loured him in :)  He loves exploring and that's why I'm taking him with me on my journeys.

This is Lavlav admiring our mountains on my recent mountaineering trip where he was also very surprised to see snow in the middle of September.

We've been to other places too but I can't really talk that much, right? :)

September

September has been around for quite a while but I'm eagerly waiting for Autumn to begin. For real. Not only at the evening and during the night.

Sunflower

I love changes that are occurring outside when nature gets new colors and sun gets this beautiful warm light in late afternoons. I snapped this sunflower last Thursday and I love how it looks. I know it's all worn out and not exactly pretty to look at but I find it extremely beautiful. I think that despite the drought it experienced and all the sun it received it looks kind of happy, kind of grateful for being here.


I'm working on another needle felted project these days and I'm sharing this sneak peek with you:

How are you my friends? What is going in your lives lately?

Card Swap Update

I got all my cards from the Liberate Your Art Card Swap and I'm really happy I participated. I will definitely do it next year too!

Here are the rest of them:

 swap cards

The card with drawn recipe on it comes from Sheila Marie Delgado. She wrote two nice very quotes o the back: "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." by Pablo Picasso and "Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt." by William Shakespeare.

The one with drawn flowers was made by Rene Jantzi and she wrote "Embrace imperfection and smile at possibility!".... which I find extremely relevant at the moment.

Collection of photographed flowers was sent by Larissa  and she chose this quote:"You don't take photographs, you make it." by Ansel Adams.

additional card

This is my bonus card from Leanne which came all the way from Australia (and in less than a week .... imagine my surprise). I sent her one of my cards because she liked them. I love the photo she chose for me and her blog is full of gorgeous shots.

Kat's beautiful card came too and it's just oh so appropriate for me as Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers! Thank you Kat!

Also, check out this post to see my first two arriving cards.

Oh, and I'm eagerly awaiting for TWO more cards! They will be sent by Tara who has this beautiful blog - Nowhere to go but Crazy and takes gorgeous photos. I can't wait to see what I get :)



This is one amazing video that Kat made in which she shows a card from each and every one of us who participated.  Do have a look, it's really inspiring to see all the lovely cards:

Illustration Friday - Identical

It's been really too long since my last drawing. My Project 52 is absolutely a failure and I guess I just can't keep up with my own goals :( Or maybe the problem lies in the setting of the goal per se. I mean, if I could take it as lightly as children can, I'd probably be able to do it, to keep up with it because I'd enjoy it immensely. I honestly wish I'd be able to do it like that.

Here is a little something that was going through my mind ever since guys from Illustration Friday posted this week's theme - Identical. Well, to be honest, I did have more ideas but this one stuck with me for the longest time:

Identical
