Liliana's necklace

I have to share something with you, my older daughter Liliana has just turned FIVE today!!! Yes, I can't believe how quickly time flies. She is going to school in August...
I made a polymer clay necklace for her and a matching bracelet (you can check a part of the process up here, on my second blog I have). This is actually my first completed piece of jewellery so I am very proud of myself, and hope you will like it to.

Do you get this ''feeling'' about all the wonderful stuff you are going to make in the evening and as day
goes you just can't wait to sit behind your desk? I have it almost every day, but...because here in Glasgow it is a bright day till late night at this time of the year ...quite often, after bed time hour, we still have some visitors in our living room....
Usually, one of them looks like this :

Doesn't she look adorable? As much as I am frustrated that another evening we will spend between our little girl's bedrooms trying to put them to bed on time, I just can't stop smiling seeing Matylda with all her treasures holding tightly in hands...

Tilly and Lilly's adventures

I am working on a new project now. I want to decorate my little girl's room with my own works. I have never put anything I did on the wall, at least not yet...But I am determined now to make this project happen.

I did the drawing already, but still looking for the best way to apply colour to it. The best medium I feel the most comfortable with is the pencil...line work. Colour? I love watercolours, but I would like to take it little further, but not to overwork...will see... I hope Matylda and Lila will like it when it is done.

In a meantime I walked upon my old drawings, when Liliana who is nearly 5 now, was just ten months old!

I remember it was soo difficult to catch her in one place. I use to have few drawings started in one time and just shift from one to the other while she was moving between her usual positions...

One more thing, I added Liliana's gallery on my blog so you can check it out and see how clever my little girl is!

Monkey and Me

Do you remember, I had a project I didn't finish. It was way too big for me. Recently I was given a small book for my girls : "Monkey and Me" by Emily Gravett, and to be honest this was IT! In my personal opinion this is exactly how my main character should look like:

Mine was too cute... and I was already tired trying to find her...anyway, hope the author has found what
she was looking for and the publisher agreed to her choice. As far as I know it is not the writer part of the job to look for an illustrator, is it?

This is a reminder how mine character looked like when I stopped to work on her...
