Happy winter solstice night

Happy winter solstice night, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

May this longest night be warm in your hearts.
may you all shine with the returning light.

Spend my days happy, watch the snowflakes fall, outside of the studio. Drawing and sewing funny creatures. Have to wait for some more daylight to make a photo to show you.
Or a fairy godmother to help me with those horrifying technical things and improve my english with the same wave of her wand.

In the meantime happy making and dreaming for me.

Doll House

Doll House, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

Tiny snowflakes outside, perfect day to bake some cookies and cake.
The little kitchen is really cold, I'll take my flour, sugar, eggs and chocolate in the living room. Looks like a life scale doll house on this photo to me.

Wish you a nice and playfull weekend.

Rainy cold November days

Monchhichi, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

It's dark, cold and raining outside the studio.
Found the old Monchhichi, knitted some new clothes for it.
Made my inner child jump with joy.

Remember to play, always
come rain, come sunshine.
Colourful rainbows in my heart forever.

Have a warm weekend, sunshine days are to come for me :)

Mr. Mascot

helps me to feel good in the new studio.
It's at the back of the house,less road noise.
We just love the silence. Well,for a short time to have a rest from the strange pogo dance we just did.
Playtime has arrived!

May your Mabon be blessed and enjoy the dark part of the year.

To wear warm wool again, take a short walk, feel the fresh air.
Autumn Forrest would be my favorite perfume

Happy home

Happy home, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

Made this mobile after re-painting, no more gold paint for me. Let the light in with the white.
Summer was nice , painting job is almost done. Looking foreward to go back to work in the studio. Just have to wait a little more, I'm moving my studio from the ground floor to what was the living room on the first floor.
The space is less, but will be used only as studio. Now I had this strange dining room/ studio combination. Took way to much time to clean my clutter every time friends came to visit.
Soon we will have very nice and clean living/ dining room on the ground floor. Friends welcome for tea any time of the day :)

And a real messy studio, just for me to play. Yeah!
I make little dances of joy :)

Labour of love

Labour of love, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

Sorry for the silence on this blog. My ancient windows 98 does not work with my photo host anymore,so no new uploads for now. Soon I'll have a second hand laptop and I can play on the internet again.

We had a nice holiday at home this year. Made day trips and home improvements. Painting stairs and doors, this time we chose white and we love it ; welcome light, welcome freshness :) Bye,bye silver,baby blue and baby pink.

Some more changes to be made,paintwork to be done, walking up and down the stairs with piles of books in my hands,make covers for furniture.

To take care for our home is to take care for our love
And changes make me happy,

Amsterdam afternoon

Monday in Amsterdam.

Two weeks ago, just perfect day out for me. Travel for 2,5 hours by train, walk the streets of Amsterdam. Love the Jordaan and "de negen straatjes". Always make a visit to the American Book Centre and just enjoy the city.

Visit to a new shop for me,The Otherist, a rariteiten kabinet in it's best way. Got home with the perfect knitting needles.
Have fun online shopping :)

New art work from me is just two deep breaths away...

Meet Boba and Hilda, crazy in love.
Hilda is a happy chicky.
Boba wants to be a cool bird but acts most days as a mad dog.
His favorite song is Dr. Hook - You make my pants want to get up and dance.

Dance to my own rythm and enjoy the sunlight.

On a new way

Costume made from my old clothes. Add some fabric and tule, ready to go.

Today it's the first steps on a new way to walk for me.
Lose weight, so my knees will not hurt any more.
And I want to be able to dance all night long.

Make a inner power spell;
"Yes, I can !" :)

Little red, little bad

Little red, little bad, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

The Little Red Riding Hood theme is one I keep going back to.

Be like her, happy walking in the world. Look the wolf in the eye.

Frozen, originally uploaded by Tuttebel.

The snow is gone now and the world has turned to grey again.
Take a deep breath and go on. Day by day, step by step.
Have no fear in the forest. Who am I fooling here?

Just stay home and play with my new stamp. It has three cute vikings and my favorite the beast behind the tree. Just love Sandra's designs.
To buy your own go to Herzensart
