Time flies and an announcement

Etsy opening

Hello friends!

Once again, I am so sorry for the delay in posting. Life happens, you know…

Last month, my friend Catherine invited me to be on her vlog and talk about the things I create. We had a blast, as we usually do and I told her that I would open my Etsy shop soon. Well, today is the day! No joke! (Yes I know it’s April Fools Day but I really am serious!) So far, I only listed 3 things but there will be more very soon. I just need to take photos of my items.

And I know I’ve said it before but I will definitely be back to blogging on a more regular basis. I miss it a lot. And I keep forgetting to post about this:

Pay it Forward

I commented on the lovely Viv’s blog and now it’s my turn to spread the love. (Do visit her blog: she is talented and so are her boys.)

The first five commenters (who want to participate) on this post will receive, from me, during the year of 2013, something hand made in the mail.

I can’t say when it will be (but it will be this year)
I can’t say what it will be (but it will be something I have made – a card, collage, fabric postcard, small gift…)

In return, you pay it forward by offering the same deal to five other people.

Let’s spread crafty mail loveliness all over this world, and brighten each others days!

Not dead – Pas morte

Dear friends,

It’s true… I’m still alive!!! Yes, I know it’s been quite a long time since I last wrote here and I could give you many excuses but I won’t. I will only say this: I am very sorry. I never forgot about my dear readers but I kept forgetting to blog. Sorry!!!

Well, this is just a little post to let you all know that I am alive and well. I’ve been living in my new apartment for a little over a month now and I LOVE it! There’s still a lot of unpacking and organizing to be done so you won’t get photos right away but I promise that you will see my little slice of heaven one day… Also, I will re-start creating art and posting it here, even if it’s just a photo and a line. This is my solemn promise to you, dear readers, that this blog is now coming back to life!

Pink Zentangle – Zentangle Rose

After yesterday’s blue zentangle, here is a pink one. I love doing the colored shading. It really completes the drawing.

A bit of a blog announcement: I have decided to change my blogging habits so that I can find some balance in all aspects of my life. Since I don’t want to stop blogging completely, and instead of taking a break, as of next week, I will blog 3 days per week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Maybe an occasional post on other days if I have something really special or important to share right then and there. Hopefully, this will mean posts with more content, better photography and possibly some tutorials… Time will tell!

Pour faire suite au zentangle bleu d’hier, en voici un rose. J’aime faire l’ombrage colorée. Ça complète vraiment le dessin.

Une petite nouvelle pour le blog: j’ai décidé de changer mes habitudes de blogage pour pouvoir trouver l’équilibre dans tous les aspects de ma vie. Comme je ne veux pas arrêter de bloguer complètement. et plutôt que de prendre une pause, dès la semaine prochaine, je bloguerai 3 jours par semaine: Lundi, Mercredi et Vendredi. Et peut-être un article occasionnel les autres jours si j’ai quelques chose de vraiment spécial ou important à partager sur le moment. Avec un peu de chance, ceci amènera des articles avec plus de contenu, de meilleures photographies et possiblement des tutoriels… Le temps nous le dira!

A new begining – Un nouveau départ

New bangs – Nouveau toupet

 Hello dear readers!

Welcome to my new blog! Make yourself comfortable and take a look around. I worked hard to make this place look good and I’m really proud of it. Let me know if something doesn’t work well for you or if you have any questions.

At the beginning of the year, I chose a word I wanted to live by, something to represent the coming year. That word was “renew.” I think it was, and still is, the perfect word for me. I’ve been “renewing” a lot of things in my life this year and I’m growing so much from all of it. I don’t tell you much about my personal life because I want my blog to focus on what I create and what inspires me. But I also think that by doing this, I have sort of lost my blogging voice a bit. So with this new blog and new look, I am “renewing” my blogging voice. But in order to do so, I will need your help. If there is something you would like me to blog about or have questions you want me to answer or even if you want peeks into my little world, please let me know. After all, my blog wouldn’t be what it is now without you, my readers!

See you tomorrow, with my latest Kool Kreatures!

Bonjour chers lecteurs, chères lectrices!

Bienvenu sur mon nouveau blogue! Installez-vous confortablement et visitez un peu. J’ai travaillé fort pour que cet endroit soit beau et j’en suis fière. Laissez moi savoir si quelque chose ne fonctionne pas bien pour vous ou si vous avez des questions.

Au début de l’année, j’ai choisi un mot pour représenter l’année à venir. Ce mot était “renouvellement.” Je pense que c’était, et l’est encore, le mot parfait pour moi. J’ai “renouveller” plusieurs choses dans ma vie cette année et ça me fait grandir. Je ne vous parle pas beaucoup de ma vie personnelle  parce que je veux que mon blogue soit centré sur ce que je crée et ce qui m’inspire. Mais je pense aussi que ce faisant, j’ai un peu perdu ma voix de blogueuse. Alors avec ce nouveau blogue et ce nouveau look, je “renouvelle” ma voix de blogueuse. Mais pour ça, j’ai besoin de votre aide. S’il y a un sujet sur lequel vous voulez que je blogue ou des questions auxquelles vous voulez que je réponde ou envore si vous voulez des apperçus de mon petit monde, dites-le moi. Après tout, mon blogue ne serait pas ce qu’il est sans vous, mes lecteurs et lectrices!

On se revoit demain, avec mes toutes dernières Kréatures Kools!


>Hard at work – Je travaille fort

Yesterday, I made a big (for me) decision. After having problems with Blogger twice in less than a week, I’ve decided to try something different. So I bought my own domain name and will soon be blogging there. I need to set everything up but I will still blog here in the meantime. I’ll let you all know as soon as my site will be ready.
Hier, j’ai pris une grosse décision (pour moi.) Après avoir eu des problèmes avec Blogger à deux reprises en moins d’une semaine, j’ai décidé d’essayer quelque chose de différent. Alors j’ai acheté mon propre nom de domaine et je bloguerai à partir de là. Je dois tout mettre en place mais je continuerai à bloguer ici en attendant. Je vous laisserai savoir quand mon site sera prêt.
