Just a happy moment in my studio.
Sorting out pompon's by color today.
What's not to like about Mondays if I do this sorting work.
Sorting things always make me feel like I'm living a fairy tale.
And it helps to sort out the disturbed mind.
Keep a honest heart, work hard, be friendly, keep your patience
and know that love always wins the battle.
May we all live happily ever after,
Love and light, Elisa.

Friends not from the blogging-community, :-) asked me what a softie was. So I'll show you the book cover from the Softies book (isbn 978-0-670-07082-4 , penguin.com.au )
The other photo is one of two softies I've made and like not enough for the book design.
I feel so gloomy today,
time to go out and play...
And tomorrow another dawn will break.
Wish I could take on a new identity, start all over with myself.
Feel strong and free, (I know it's all in me, but hidden so far away)
I already know my new name;
Take my hat off for you, "Angenehm, Frits Wunderlich isst der name"
Sadly one Sunday
I waited and waited
With flowers in my arms
All the dream has created
I waited 'til dreams, like my heart were all broken
The flowers were all dead
And the words were unspoken
The grief that I know
was beyond all consoling
The beat of my heart was a bell that was tolling
Saddest of Sundays

A softie design is on it's way to Australia.
Feels like a child of me has gone backpacking and I will see a picture of her again in the book next year.
It was a insecure pregnancy with this child, and hard labour :-)
Pattern writing..., I never ever work with patterns, make my own as I go along.
It had to be perfect for me this softie, the honour to be in a book.
But after a lot of try -feel unsatisfied-try again she is just fine.
And the difficult process gave me the insight that it's not about perfect art or a perfect life.The longing for things to be perfect keeps the fun out of my life.
To walk the woods with joy and trust, that's what it all is about.
And walk the woods in our dreams tonight, maybe to see some fairies have a nice rest.

Should have known better...,
Made a little ritual to clean my new magic room,and myself for the work I want to do.
Asked the elements for clear thoughts and new ideas, passion for life, the ability to cope really well with my emotions,good grounding and the center to hold.
Made a circle, used salt to absorb blockading energy. Spread my arms and whirled counterclockwise to release energy's in me and the room.
And a day later used my vacuum cleaner and sung along with Freddie Mercury's "I want to break free".
Really fun to do, made the room and myself feel really serene and in ease.
But the dancing widdershins was maybe a bit to enthusiastic or my horrible singing..., a few days later I catched a really bad stomach flu.
But after a week, lots of visiting the bathroom and gallons of tea, I can honestly say I have never felt this clean inside to ;-)

Say hello to my little white sheep ;-)
It was a yule gift and has now his own room to live in.
We redecorated our little spare bedroom, painted the walls in a pale pink. Had a trip to the local Ikea for some more bookshelves a new carpet and pillows.
From fabrics and second-hand embroideries I made this pillows.
So white sheep and I can do some serious pillow talk this year.

Hello world wide web, it's 2008, and how do you feel?
Are you happy, are you sad
or most the time just mad?
Remember whoever said progress was a slow process, wasn't talking about you, you are the P.I.M.P,
I just wonder who's got the magic stick...
But girls just wanna have fun, so I will continue this blog, and don't mind the why?-thing in my head.
This photo is as always imperfect (green line...), but I love the light and this play with things and thoughts. The suggestion of another world. Fun is possible!
I'll try ever so hard to keep my spirit up, move my lazy ass and enjoy my ' weird head' this year. Just love life.
And the friendly people on the world wide web, love to you.
