Folding screens

I saw a picture of a pink folding screen with mirrors and wanted to make it in miniature. I made another one in green, too. I think I'll try a light yellow as well. I used chalk paints to paint them. They are easy to use and to mix different shades. The folding screens are made mostly out of old book covers which is easily my favorite material. It gives me satisfaction somehow to use things nobody wants or appreciates anymore and create something beautiful out of it and give it a new purpose.

Writing group

Today I went to a writing class. I want to write more but I feel like most of the time my inner critic gets the best of me before I even get any writing done. So I thought it would be good to join a group where we read each others writings and give and get feedback. I mostly want to write children's stories and couple of days ago I finally finished one that I have been writing on and off almost for two years! Finishing that story felt like a really good way to start this new year! It gave me clarity and feels like a fresh wind blowing.

I made a sleigh for my Fox Terrier (on a previous post). Well others can use it, too but its made with the measurements of the dog. Right now its windy and dark here in Finland, not much snow really. But it's good to be prepared for the snowy days! :)

New Year And New Creatures

Yesterday I sat down and started to make a Fox Terrier, something I have been thinking of making for quite a while. Sometimes it happens like this, I sit down and start and whoops, it's done! I guess it's because he had already been living in my mind for so long. Anyway, here he is, yet to be named and still needing some tiny final touches.
