A new year...

Once in a while my life feels like tons of little threads waiting to be joined into that beautifull strand of yarn. I start all these projects at the same time having the end result very clear in my head. But when the big picture, the finished project is a rather big one there is a flipside to it, one can get lost. I don't get completely lost but let's just say the room gets a bit dark and I have a hard time finding my way around it.



That's how this year has been for me. I have spend a lot of time building the greenhouse, and fully finishing the shop interior, and at the same time I have put a lot of energy into trying to simplify the practical part of our life, and finding a balance between work and family. Inbetween all this I have tried to steal some time to do a bit creative work in the studio. Now the threads are coming together and everything is a bit lighter and I am happy to say: I see the light...

November passed, December passed... What happened to Christmas? Well... We had a very nice Christmas, very mellow and warm.

I have a lot to show you, so if you wonder about fall pictures or even summerpictures on this blog the following month, here is the reason: This next month I have decided to show you all the things I never got to write about last year. No, it will not be the breaking news, but I need to show it all and to zero it all and not stay in the past...

Are you with me ?

A new year... a fresh calender... In my case three of them... One in my bag for private stuff, one at the studio for workrelated things and one in my kitchen for planning meals.

A fresh breeze into the clutter free apartment liberated from the sometimes strangeling cozyness of Christmas... and cleaning...

Yes cleaning... No I don't really like it but it certainly helps when you have beautifull brushes around doesn't it ?



The brushes are handmade by blind people
The dusting brush is nearly 1 meter long and it is great when you have a high ceiling...

Oh yes, at last but not least:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of you...
