Painting Exercise and No Vacation

I´m still here.
We couldn´t get a go from the doctors
and the security company to go for Italy
So we had to cancel everything the night before departure.
No Vacation at this time, but we´re going to
plan a similar trip in the near future, as soon as we have a go.

In the meantime I´ve been catching up on the
project in the Primitive Portaits Class over at

painting exercises
ATC size

my worktable during progress

4 little painting on wood
I´m quite happy with these.

working in a larger scale gives me trouble.
I don´t find this easy at all.
This is a 8x8 inch canvas
No sure about this one

two little girls painted on a piece of cardboard
from an old photo-album

I like to paint on this 
it´s something with the paint and the structure in the paper
I really like how it works together.

A lot of practice is needed
but so much fun.

Wishing you a lovely sunday

Happy Easter

Family visits are over here.
In between we have been spending time
at doctors and emergency rooms

dryed hyndrangea and beeswax

Hubby got the allergic attach
on the first day of the holidays when 
all doctors are out of reach.
He´s now on heavy medication
and we hope it have topped
and is going in the right direction.

We´re suppose to leave for
Italy on  Thursday.
Cross my fingers here :-)

Hope your Easter have been a good one

April is Here

and more than two weeks have gone since my last post.

I wanted to show you what I have been up to.

The flea market season haven´t really started yet, but I found one
a few weeks ago. Didn´t find that many goodies, but I was lucky enough
to get my hands on a little old unused dairy and a bunch of sweet
embroidered bird pieces

thought they would make perfect book covers
so decided to make some more book.
who could have guessed

this time with a new binding method
new to me that is - coptic stitch binding.

old books
and water color paper

and a few notebooks too,
made from old books
and unused vintage ledger pages.

here´s the binding

and some front covers.
These books are in the shop


stamp carving

I have been wanting to try for some time now

quite fun that is

and quite happy with them too
I am


I´ve also signed up for the
by Mindy Lacefield

first project

new inspiration


For those of you who know
Things are lightning up a bit over here
I´m not sure how much respite we get this time
or if this is for good - cross my fingers here.

I´ve had a little more quiet me time
and new ideas are coming
that´s a good sign
on the other hand - the bear making spirit is fading
I´m not sure if this is a temporarry outcome or...

Those I make now will be aimed for Hugglets in september.
I´m hoping for a little update before the summer
holidays, but at this time, I´m not sure how
things will work out.

Thank you so much for coming in today
Tina ♥♥♥
