Doodling postcards

Another hot day. And I spent part of it at IKEA to get storage for my studio. I was able to get a turquoise Raskog, the rolling rack. They are discontinuing the color and I really wanted a second one. The first one is already full with paints, pens and other supplies. This one will be for collages elements and book making stuff. Anyway, after a few tasks, I was too hot to take the paints out. And it’s so humid in my apartment today that they would’ve taken a while to dry. So, inspired by Alisa Burke and Hanna … Continue reading Doodling postcards

News from the artist’s den

Almost 4 months since I last wrote… So much for getting back to the blogging habit… I have no excuse, as always. The school year ends in less than 2 months and let me tell you, I’m really looking forward to my summer vacation! Not that I have anything planned. And not that I don’t like my job. Because I do. Love my job, that is. But it has been a trying year at work. Art wise, I’ve been creating in small bursts. My mother and I attend an art journaling club every month (except for this month) where we … Continue reading News from the artist’s den

August so far

What’s this? A second post before the end of the month? Oh my!!! I’ve been quite busy over the past couple of weeks. Exploring the city and its many activities. Hanging out with family and friends as well as taking some time to myself. Over the weekend, I went to a free event called Orientalys. All things oriental. I had some henna done on my right hand, ate Moroccan and Lebanese delights and watched some amazing belly dance and Bollywood performances. A feast for the senses, really! I’m more in love with belly dancing and Bollywood than ever before! And … Continue reading August so far

Time flies and an announcement

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 … Continue reading Time flies and an announcement

Fresh news – Nouvelles fraiches

Dear friends, I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged in almost 3 months. Work is keeping me busy and when I get some free time, I don’t have the energy to do much. There is also the matter of packing up everything I own as I’ll be moving on June 1st. I’m really excited about the move since I’ll be closer to work, therefore will be able to walk/bike to work every day, even in winter. Not the case right now. Also, my new apartment is bigger and I will have a space dedicated to my studio. This is the fresh … Continue reading Fresh news – Nouvelles fraiches

That’s life – C’est la vie

Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe that there are only a couple of days left to this year. Truthfully, I haven’t been doing much on my end. I finished work at 6pm on the 23rd and I’m finally starting to relax. I spend a lot of time watching old TV shows on the web (I canceled cable TV back in November.) I haven’t been creating much art because my apartment is a mess. I have too much stuff for my current living space and it’s interfering with my mojo. I need to get rid of some stuff … Continue reading That’s life – C’est la vie
