Buy the shoes

Buy the shoes

I found this image in my not-so-neat blog folder and can't for the life of me remember why I created it. I know it is a featured image but I have no idea what I was going to write about it! 😀 Anyways, I hope you find a pair of shoes you *need* soon! Many hugs,

Floss

Floss

How do you even blog about flossing? Yeah, I get it, it is important and all of that, but seriously! When I decided to blog about The Sunscreen Song, I had a couple of ideas as to what I learned from it and what I would say about it. But having to write a post about...

Why I joined an agency

Why I joined an agency

It has been seven months since I kind of permanently joined an agency. But why? Why give up seven years of freelance "freedom" for working for someone else? First of all, I did not give up anything. Secondly, well, there is no secondly really. It was definitely not...

The Crew | Fluister

The Crew | Fluister

I am pleased to introduce you to Fluister (Whisper). He is the second monster character from the tiny human's crew. I am so excited to get the whole set done for his bedroom! You can see the characters' rough brainstorm here and what the monsters looked like before I...

My GSD-playlist

My GSD-playlist

When we were in hospital with the tiny human there was a nurse who really - more than all the other committed, over-competent ones - knew how to get shit done. We could never remember her name and ended up calling her Nurse GSD (get shit done). As the end of the year...

My sister’s painting

My sister’s painting

My sister got married way back in 2003 and in 2004 she asked me to do a painting for her of one of their wedding photographs. Of course, this was a challenge I was not too keen to accept, but I did anyways. So, years have gone by and I have been finding and losing the...

Mondays are for being creative

Mondays are for being creative

A series of unfortunate melt-downs led to something good. It normally does 🙂 but it takes a while to get there. I had a mini-breakdown and lost my shit *almost* completely one evening after a pointless argument with the hubby. When things settled down and we all...

The Crew | Pokkelpensie

The Crew | Pokkelpensie

It has been a while since I initially started working on Rudi's friends. I just can't get myself to play on a computer when I have been working on one for an entire day. I managed to digitise them, but have not worked on them for quite some time. On Monday I finally...

Net nog ‘n brief

Net nog ‘n brief

Ek het so hele rukkie terug sommer net gevoel of 'n trok my getref het. Eintlik is mens veronderstel om elke dag 'n brief te skryf dink ek - wanneer jy goed en sleg voel. Al is dit net om op te vrommel in die drom te gooi. Ek het hierdie een vir my suster ge-epos. Dit...

Art Journaling

Art Journaling

So clearly it is taking me a while to get my creative juices flowing. BUT I am not beating myself up about it. There is the Same Size, Same Price, No Signature exhibition coming up that I really, really want to submit a piece for, but I just can't seem to get it...

How do you deal with “uninspiredness”?

How do you deal with “uninspiredness”?

Featured image by http://blog.drawn.ca Ugh. I am having the clichéd creative block. Tomorrow is Monday and I need to get my mojo back - fast! How do you cope with feeling uninspired and not being able to create? I think it is one of my greatest fears: not being able...

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. I am still in two minds about which of these is worse. Both leave you lying awake at night. Well, maybe not everyone, but I have had sleepless nights because of both. I...

Draw what you feel

Draw what you feel

A good couple of months ago I was asked to draw anything - as long as it is something - by a person that waltzed into my life. "Draw what you feel." When you suffer from an I don't give a shit right now disorder, this seems like an immensely difficult task. Anything?...

Nine of Wands

Nine of Wands

I have to admit, I am subscribed to a weekly tarot newsletter with personalised readings. How personalised can a computer-generated reading be? It depends which way you look at it, I suppose. From my knowledge, setting up a site that like will take some above-average...

Sing

Sing

Sing. Sure. I sing. Just not in public. Except when I have had too much to drink, then I imagine that I can sing. And my husband reminds me the morning after that it was just my imagination. I'd hang my head and feel sorry for a moment that I never did quite make it...
