All the names in a bowl…

My daughter picks up a piece of paper… I’m trying to get focus with the camera but she is too quick…
She runs away with the little paper… I finally get a hold of her, trying to get focus on the name on the paper between her little fingers…
I take the piece of paper and it says Lantlivs Anna on it!
Congratulations Lantlivs Anna!
Mail me your address at so I can send you the goodies!

Hummmlan 1 year!

One year ago I started to blog, it has been a lot of fun and I’ve “met” people that I never have make contact with if it wasn’t for the blog. To celebrate the 1-year anniversary I like to give away a present. You have until Sunday the 25th of February to make a comment on this post and I will draw lots. So come on, don’t be shy, leave a comment and a gift of goodies can be yours!

My little girl is starting preschool. She is going trough an acclimatization period of two weeks. It is going okay, she likes to play with the other kids and they have so many fun things to do and play with. She hasn’t cried once when I left her there, but I have… I’ve been sobbing and had a terrible heartache… I’m going through an acclimatization period too…

I’ve started to pick out some fabric for a drawstring bag that my little princess can have her clothes in at preschool. I’ve done this model before to my nieces. Some of you maybe recognize the “MAYA” application? I did that on a sweater a couple of months ago. The sweater is now too small for her, so I only recycle the application.

The Creative License -

Giving Yourself Permission To Be The Artist You Truly Are.

This is the best book I’ve read in a long while and the book I really need to read. Mr. Hummmlan gave it to me as an early birthday gift. Thank you! Me and my pencil hasn’t been the best of friends for a long time now and I need to get a kick in the butt to get started.

Quote from the book:
“Somewhere deep inside, we all have a longing to make things – be they drawings, music, hand-knit sweaters, or loaves of bread. Then why do so few of us consider ourselves CREATIVE?”

Author: Danny Gregory
(ISBN 1-4013-0792-2)


More quotes from the book:
“When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college – that my job was to teach people how to draw. She stared at me, incredulous, and said ´you mean they forget?´” – Howard Ikemoto

Drawings are experiences.
The more you draw, the more experienced you’ll get.
In fact, you’ll learn more from BAD or unpredictable or weird experiences than from those that go exactly as you’d hoped and planned.
Release your ego’s desire for perfection.
Take risks

The curtain is up!

Did some sewing last night. I think the curtain could have been a bit longer but our window is very tall. In a “normal” window the curtain would be perfect. Bought some tulips, it’s always nice to have new fresh flower when you put up new curtains.
