Illustration Friday:Whisper

These two drawings illustrate my idea about this week's topic WHISPER.I think this topic gives a lot of freedom and ignites the imagination.A lot of people went with the image of people whispering in each other's ears but I took the Mother Nature's path.You can picture a quiet winter or fall night with clear skies and lots of stars and when you sand there in awe of this divine silence and beauty you begin to feel like you can hear the whisper of the stars.

Busy Saturday.Early rising, short distance trip to watch her basketball games,the last ones for this school year;shopping at the mall and eating out, then back home.It was fun to watch the last two games.They did their best,they grew up a lot in comparison with the first ones.I am proud of her and so happy that she loves it.
Now I am hoping for a slow and quiet Sunday.The pictures are not from today but they describe my mood at the moment pretty good.

Illustration Friday:Wool

This is my illustration for this week's topic:Wool.It is inspired by the Bulgarian folklore.I bet there are few women left nowadays who can spin wool by hand.But I remember when I was a little girl my grandma used to do it sitting on a bench by the gate visiting with the women from the neighbourhood.
My grandparents lived in a small village and this was how the village women used to rest from their daily chores: discussing the neighbourhood news and doing another craft with their hands.

The first three

These three illustrations were the first three for 2013.I did not write any New Year's resolutions but I hope to find more time to draw this year.Whenever I can.Even for 5 minutes.With whatever medium I can find available at the moment.Doing good so far.
I could not participate in the last week challenge of Illustration Friday with the theme: STORM.I drew the illo but did not have the energy to upload it.I have been struggling with my cold for almost a couple of weeks already and still haven't overcome it.It appeared to be a tough one but it is high time to start feeling better.

One Funny Week

It was supposed to be one pleasant week off full of activities I love to do.But...I ended up with a cold. Or may be it was the flu?I can never tell the difference.It was not fun at all,I could not do much.I spent it drinking a lot of tea,watching TV,reading and sketching,birdwatching and pet watching and taking pictures around the house.As I am writing this at the moment I realise that it does not sound too bad actually.

Illustration Friday:Wheel

This is my input for this week's IF.I drew this illustration last summer when I was in the midst of my biking season.I love biking and people on bikes inspire me.I drew the girl in vintage clothes and an old fashion bike because it reminds me about a more relaxed and simple way of life.

DIY makeover

My daughter loved this shirt very much but grew out of it very fast.I loved the design and that's way did not take it to the thrift store.I knew I could make something out of it.Thank God for the Internet, I got the idea while browsing the other people's craft blogs.At that time my daughter wanted to get rid of her night lamp because it was too babyish.I bet you can see that Princess sign and crown!So,I decided to disguise it under a new lamp shade made out of the old shirt with the beautiful design with roses.It matched the color of the base and was so feminine.The sawing machine is not my best friend but I tried to do my best and I am happy with the result.
