Take the long way home

Taking the works home, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

I like this image from my works on their way home. Looks like a real over the top, 'Kill your seventies-darlings' installation made in 80's ;-)

The idea of home is very important to me, in my heart and art.
The actual place where we live, the longing for places we've loved and the yearning of our souls for a true home.
True love is the only one who can make a true home to be our true souls.
Lot's of trues today :-)

I'm working on two dolls, 'strings of hope' , drawings, cutting photo's out of magazines, glue them in inspiration dummy's, sewing little things.
It's like cleaning my thoughts and feelings.
My way to change my perception.

The biggest task for me to do today, is to take Light in with every breath I take, and breath Love out.

Brightest Blessings, Elisa

Swimming in your ocean

For the local spiritual bookstore I made this window display today.
I enjoyed taking some old works from the attic and let them see a bit of light. And had a really great time by making the display, talking to the shop owner and eat a delicious salmon salade baguette :-)

The room divider with ribbons and beads I customized yesterday.
I loved to work with beads and ribbons again.
*Note to me: collect more beads, ribbons, flowers and pompons!
How cool would be a room in a room totally made out of these.

The rest of the works are over ten years old. Made from paper mache, a shedded mermaids tale skin, a group of seven wise bird woman watching the waters of the world, and all the emotions flow in tides.
And my four "Nose-in-the-wind" elements watchers.

I picked out some books I liked in the store, added some fabric flowers and bling-bling to it all, and with a wave of my magic wand I was satisfied. And really enjoyed a fun day.
To me, it's important to remember the fun aspect of art and spiritual matters.
Follow my path of joy.

Don't stop me now

Tuttebel on Sunday, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

... cause I'm having a good time!

Carnaval in town, we just celebrate one day. That's enough!
But it is such a nice day, with lots of great friends and so much fun.
It is like a little time capsule, always the same day, what ever year it is.
Really comforting, to know there will always be this great Sunday.
Again and again. Gives this girl energy and joy.

Make fun when you can! Love, Elisa.

Queen- Don't stop me now.
