the five blogs i'd like to share are:

7 things.

Looked at the lovely drawings of Oana Befort.

In the wonderland.

Disposable cameras will join me from now on. Inspired by Zenobie.

Have you ever thought of changing your name? This would be scary but imagine how you could start over again totally free...

Listening to The Jezabels.

Lots of cakes & birthdays & flowers!

A lot of unfinished snail mail projects waiting for me.

Just came home from a long sunny walk with the doggy. Spring is in the air, didn't even have to wear a coat.

Some aquarell painting. I got a cold over night so I am going to have a fresh juice after writing this.
For those who are interested in the books of the last post, I linked them here and here! Enjoy!

Since our 2nd Valentine's Day I get a Cacti or a Succulent every year. First one 2011, hairy one 2012.

Thanks for all your wonderful relaxation tips! I tried some yet. I think a big reason was the interview yesterday,
that kept me in a stressy mood. Although I would never admit that to myself. It all turned out well, there's a new
focus now, I can work on.

7 things.

Lots of freezy but sunny walks with the dog.

Have to calm my mind. I really have trouble to relax. Any suggestions?

A new job offer for my boy!!! Means we'll live together again soon!

I love fresh juice. I always mix several citrus fruit together.
Do you have a favourite juice or smoothie recipe?

Since my new studies, I am totally addicted to couscous. There's a shop selling the best couscous salad ever!
I tried to copy the recipe but didn't get it the really same way. Do you see me in the spoon?

After several tries since years (I always waited so long, that I didn't like the layout and had to start over again),
I managed to make a portfolio site. Not online yet, but in the final steps!

This week I will meet my Prof to talk about my thesis. I am not confident with it. Maybe I'll dismiss it for something
else. I am a bit afraid about that meeting. My future studies depend on this thesis.

Made some books for some of you! It's nice to find some time to become creative again. Just wishing for more
space to do so.

Cinnamon poached apples & raspberry poached pear. Both served hot, because it became so cold the last days.
And the strangest avocado pit ever. Put it in water so see if it grows.

Just finished some drawings. Think I'll follow this series.
