May 27th/ IF: Worry

A sketch for a collage. I hope I will make it later, but the rest of this week holds no time for it. I won't worry about it, though ;)

If only I could post smell ...

- I would ask you to smell these. Rosemary, sage, three different kinds of peppermint, lavender and curry plant. I bury my nose in them and breathe in :)
More on my food blog - I hope to see you there. (The amazing weather we have here calls for outdoor activity, so pen, paper and alikes take a slumber these days).

Carvin' on

I'm making stamps:) so no pictures today, but a few recommendations;
a very cool idea:"Face your pockets" via Mansuetude.
And Deborah Champion, whose illustrations are very cool. (via Illustration Friday).
Take care:)

Illustration Friday: Wide

Arms wide open.

I highly recommend a visit to Maria Eugenia at Caderno de desenhos, she makes outstanding watercolour illos.

May 17th

As some of you might know, I like to cook. I don't have any formal training or anything, I just like it for the fun, relaxation and savour. Yesterday I started a food-blog; Christine's Kitchen. It doesn't look much yet, but I hope to fill it up with recipes and food ideas, tips, and lots of photos. Feel free to take a peek:))

And todays Diary doodle (somewhat inspired by yesterdays preoccupation:)

Childhood on a string

I found a pile of hønseringe at today's local fleemarked. Did you have these when you were a child? What did you call them?
We collected and swapped them. The S'es, C's and 8's were among the most common – I had completely forgotten about the skeletons, the locks, the owls and the keys. How I loved them.
I have an idea for an illustration with them, and some might also make a nice pair of earrings. Or maybe one of you guys would be up for a swap ;-)
Hard afternoon light and shadow on the balcony.

Old stuff

I went over some old cds last night, and stumbled across old illos that never made it pass the printer. This is one of them.
I made a little series back then, some of them were printet as free-cards and distributed on cafées in Copenhagen. Maybe I will post them later. Or make some new ones:)

Thank you for the kind words and sunny wishes yesterday. I had a great, relaxing day. Hope you did too:)

** aahhhh **

I have taken the day off. I put a chicken over for later, and now I will go sit in the sun - it's the best weather here.
Perhaps I'll read, perhaps I'll do a little needlepoint. Perhaps I will just close my eyes and enjoy the silence ...

May 6th

The actual weather forecast from last night. Feels like summer:)
Gracia Haby has a really beautiful blog - she makes wonderful collages:)

Inspired by Mansuetudes thoughts today, I want to share a slice of my day;) Today, I visited my old school (for the first time since I graduated) and it was an extremely powerful experience. You know that movie-trick when the camera zooms in as the camerawagon is pulled back fast? It's usually during a portrait scene and feels like -woouuscchh-. Looking into my old class rooms, I felt like that. Everything came roaring at me - sounds, voices, smells, feelings, moods -- and walking on, eyes off the room, it was gone. Breathtaking.

The prize - as you know - is a set of home-carved rubber stamps, and I'm just so thankful, I'm sending one to each of you. Please email me your physical adresses (- I will also try to find your emails in order to obtain them) My email is on my "profile"-page.
