February was a much slower reading month than January, mostly because the book I read or was reading didn't grab me that much, or in one case I'm still slowly reading and savouring a book that I'll probably finish this month. 16. Ekaterina Sedia: The Secret History of Moscow This book is set in Moscow in the 1990s, where people are suddenly turning into birds. A small group sets to investigate this mystery and to find one woman's missing sister. During their investigation, they find an...

Valokuvatorstain haasteeseen "Virta" vastaan vanhalla kuvalla Aurajoesta Halistenkosken alapuolelta, josta virta jatkaa vääjäämättä matkaansa merta kohti.
It has been busy times here with summer guests and my stuff moved about from the living room to closets - I even lost my ATC trading stash in the process. or should I say 'lost' - it will turn up somewhere, sometime, but it's embarassing to owe trades. This little bird inspired me to make a collage. In fact, I made this as inspiration for this week's challenge at UseYour Stuff - go take part . This is your chance to use what is lying around on your work table. also entering this in: Three...
Tosin ei ole vielä kesä... enkä ole Kangasallakaan koskaan käynyt. KKvintagen haaste avautuu tänään aiheena "Mä oksalla ylimmällä". Aiheena ei ole lintu, vaikka lintu siinä maisemaa katseleekin. Aiheena on kaikki se, mitä lintu näkee: maisema ihmisineen, eläimineen, taloineen ja koko ympärillä oleva luonto. Minun oudot aivoni menivät askeleen edemmäksi ja tutkivat, mitä ajatuksia linnun päässä mahtaakaan liikkua. Mielikuvituksen voimin jalkauduimme Kangasalan metsiin...
OKTK mixed media-haasteessa on tässä kuussa kauniin seesteisenrauhallinen inspiraatiokuva. Merenrantaa ja pikkukiviä, ne siinä ensin näin. Seesteinen väritys hiipi kuin itsellään kortteihini. Pikkukiviä syntyi sapluunan ja värjätyn tekstuuripastan avulla. Meri on kuvissa pysähtynyt, mutta alati liikeessä. Ranta veteen pudonneet lehdet kaluaa meri talven aikana luurangoiksi, joissa on enää lehtiruodit jäljellä. Rannalla on vain pyöreitä muotoja, kivet niinkuin aallokkokin...
Hi everyone! We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow! Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed sunbathing in our terrace… I’ve put more layers on this canvas – now it looks like this, not complete yet. Paint Party Friday I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee […]

First of all, I’m sorry not visiting your blogs but last couple of weeks have been ‘difficult’. My diverticulosis activated again but I started antibiotics on Tuesday. My dental project has began – now I have six temporary teeth on upper jaw… sitting on that chair 2,5 hrs wasn’t that […]
Oh boy, Theme Art Challenge in April 2017 is ‘something new’ I’ve had two paper yarn skeins waiting for inspiration. But what to do with these? I cut black yarn, wet it, straighten, dried, made a knot, put it on crumpled paper… Here’s the first […]
On Friday 24th of March I had two dental implants surgery, both sides. I feel almost ‘normal’ but eating is still slowly…egg is easy to eat!
Hi everyone! Early on Friday morning I had two implant surgeries. On Friday afternoon my head felt like a football after a hard game!
Sininen on aiheena tämän kuukauden KK-vintage-haasteessa . Sinisessähän on valtavasti sävyjä, joten ei liene vaikeaa keksiä sopivaa aihetta. Minulla sininen toimii taustassa, leimakuvioissa ja lopuksi kuvan päälle roiskituissa pilkuissa. Ihmiset siellä kurkistelevat filminauhan takaa - oman elämänsä sankarit. Avoin mieli ja avoin sydän ovat maailmassa tarpeellisia: Virheet kuuluvat elämään, mutta niistä kannattaa ottaa opikseen. Elämä kannattaa elää tarkoituksella, ei...

I've never read any of the Hector Lassiter novels by Craig McDonald , but have read several good reviews of them, so I picked the graphic novel version of his first novel, Head Games , up in the comic book store my friend runs here in Turku. The drawing style looked stylish, and the story line sounded good. I wasn't disappointed. The story about Pancho Villa's severed head and people hunting it is funny and tragic, and it reminded me of several other novels and films, such as Bring Me the Head...

Top 5 Wednesday is GoodReads group where people discuss different bookish topic each week. Today the topic is books with witches. 1, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Well, the show isn’t a book but it has books and comics. Even comics which center on my very favorite witch: Willow Roseberg. So I couldn’t have a list […]
The ultimate summer theme - for me it's butterflies. We don't have many in our yard even though I try various flowers each year, perhaps three, four different ones. To compensate for the lack of them I made this set as an inspiration for the Use Your Stuff challenge that opens today. Background was made with acrylics and stamping the grass. The background was so pretty by itself it was almost a shame to cover it up. I built up with stamped tissue paper and some washi tape, added snippets of...
