Happy month of March everybody!It is nice to think that spring will be here pretty soon.This winter was very nice to us in this part of the world but I miss the flowers and the birds,the sunshine and the bike rides.
Today I had a quiet day off work in the company of our pets.It was not a very productive day,just a relaxing one.Actually while watching my favourite talk shows I made two Martenitsas.It is a Bulgarian tradition when people give each other little creations made out of red and white yarn in the beginning of March.The red color is a symbol of health,the white of prosperity.It is like you wish your loved ones have all the health and prosperity in their lives.You can see my Martenitsas in the first picture.

Happy Valentine's Day

Some arts and crafts inspired by St.Valentine's Day.The cards are handmade with store bought stamps,hand made stamps, watercolor and red ballpoint pen.I have made the window decoration from the wire of an old notebook and remnants of yarn and fabric.The picture with Dove chocolate is from last year but I never got to post it ,so... now is the moment.Did I mention that Dove is my favorite chocolate?And the picture of our kitty,because her nose is in the shape of a tiny pink heart.Happy Valentine's Day to you all!

Time is the best treasure in life after health.I think.It is so important to have some time for ourselves. To do the things we love.To think.To cleanse our brains.To organize our thoughts.Or just to be.To feel the moment of life.I have time now.I am rich.At the moment.I have eight days off work.I savor every moment,when I do what I love to do:read,sketch,look at the other people's blogs on my tablet,knit,take pictures and so on or even when I do nothing.The pictures above are like illustrations of my life during the last three-four snowy winter days.The spread from my sketchbook is from a year ago.I have some new sketches but I have to take pictures and upload them in the computer.I even tried to bake a bunt cake yesterday and it turned out pretty delicious!

Random pictures from my life. I 've been too busy recently.Too much work and no play.No time even to think let along dream or do art.The closest thing to something  creative was to take pictures during those two or three weeks.As you can see in the pictures I still try to keep up with my New Year's resolution and drink a lot of herb tea.This one is mint and the ginger bread cookies...well,I had to make them even after Christmas,They are so delicious!!!One of the reason to be busy after work were my daughter's basketball games.It is so much fun to watch her and her team play.They are not the strongest team  in the area but they grew up a lot and it is so entertaining to watch them play.I look forward to watching every single game.At some point during those endless work weeks I started feeling the cabin fever really bad .I had to go out for a walk in the snow.I had to...Down the bridge,down the bike trail I went in wind and cold....But I felt really,really good after that walk.
And yesterday we went to eat out at Texas Road House.It is a little bit spendy for us but we had a good reason.My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and it was a special treat for all tree of us.The secret is:we looooove their BBQ ribs.
The last drawing  of a random cat was inspired by the Internet.I hope I haven't posted it before,It's an old one and I do not want to bore you with the same images over and over again.She reminds me of our new cat Maya.I am under the influence of her overload of cuteness and at the same time she can be a naughty little thing.But I can never be mad at her.

Happy New Year!

Christmas brought a lot of warmth and joy to our house.Christmas songs have been played on the trumpet,delicious food has been eaten,lots of presents have been opened,So much excitement for people and pets.And then the New Years celebration was quieter,spent at home with some more delicious food and a glass of wine watching the New Year's show from Time's Square.It was quieter in the house because the kids were not home celebrating with their friends.They had fun for sure as well as we did.I loved this New Year's show and almost all the performers who sang.It was great!
And now we have to start getting used to the idea that the Holiday season is over./I wish it could last at least for another month!!!/I have to start thinking about a New Year's resolution.I don't know yet...The only thing I could think of was that I have to start drinking more herb tea.There was a period in my life when I drank a lot of herb tea and was very healthy,no flu could knock me over.Oh,...and maybe my regular one:To make more time for sketching/drawing and art.In two words to be creative.So,guys let's be more creative in the New Year 2015.Let's make time for  the things we like to do!HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you,who stops by to read my blog!

The most wonderful time of the year!!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year as they say in the song.I enjoy every minute of it whenever I can.Especially this weekend.I am almost recovered from the nasty flu I got at the beginning of the week.It was not fun I am telling you.My whole family was sick with the cough,fiver,chills,body aches-the works!But we survived and everything is back to normal now,thank god.These pictures are snippets of  my day today.Very rarely I will be able to post pictures on the day I take them but today is one of these days.I got a lot of rest and drank a lot of herb tea with chocolate cakes,did some chores and took a lot of pictures,cooked delicious creamy potato soup and went to the Christmas parade with my girl and her friends.It is one of those days that create memories.
