I know, we are deep in winter, but my heart (and my brushes) is longing for spring. Today I took the day off the computer and enlarging portfolio.
O.k. first of all – thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing response to my first giveaway! Lots of good energy and good words! I hope we will all manage to stick with them.
May I say finally? I was quite busy past few Months trying to do so many things, working on my web page, working on my first journal line, working on presentation lists, trying to submit on art calls now and then …
I have to admit I’ve waited impatiently for my first fabric. And finally this week it came. Right at the beginning of the summer. The funny part is that this was a main pattern of a collection I named Summery. There are really no coincidences. I was a little bit scared how it will [...]
Yes, we had gorgeous two days. We hiked, we ate in peace (with two little kids this really is a luxury), we talked in peace and we sleep in peace. And we found a perfect place for our getaway here. We talked how we almost forgot how it looks like when we are together just us. [...]
Well I don’t go to Surtex, but my designs are and that is kind a same thing !!! It was hard keeping a secret but I really didn’t know if I would manage to do all the job and uploaded designs and mock-ups in such short period of time.
This is maybe the hardest post I will write. I’ve never lost a person who I held so close to my heart. And last week I did. My grandma passed away and though it wasn’t a total surprise it was a total heartbreak.
Today I am sitting here infront of my computer sipping homemade lemonade and thinking about past three weeks. Well it was a busy, sometimes bumpy and also fun and excited ride. There were a moment of two when I totally wanted to quit everything and I was talking to my husband with the moaning voice that I [...]
I know, I know this photo is big, maybe to big for my blog, but I want it that way. Deep down I feel that it has to do everything about what I love to do.
I’ve never meant to dis-neglected my blog so much time, this thing just happened among so many, many others. I didn’t want even inform you what kind of December we had. Story short – lot of sickness over here.
I’ve been busy these days and I mean B U S Y. Sometimes I felt such uncomfort that I wanted to escape from my own life. But I stayed in and everything is now calming down.
Yesterday I opened my etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop/PetraKern?ref=seller_info. It doesn’t seem to be big deal to do that: but for me, right now it was a trial. I am laughing now when I remember all those words of girls who made it in the art business. Almost every one told us that all of the [...]
I don’t want to talk about this weekend. Oh, God, no – the kids were sick, I was worried, we didn’t sleep much – common virus attack thing. But we had delightful weekend that week I returned from Minnesota.
I promised I will tell you more about real people I’ve met. There are so many that it would be impossible to mention them here. And those kind of events are mostly because of people and for people and if those people are creative and artsy than … Wohooo – you are on the right [...]
It is very easy to sit on your safety chair at your home and dreaming about all the nice things you would do if you had time, money, career, friends all over the world … For me to stood off my comfy chair and go to other side of the world to be closer to [...]
Yep – yesterday my big boy turned 4 (we had a little morning- in bed – family ceremony). I really can’t believehow quick the time flew. Oh my gosh it seems so close when I first held him … And I can recall so clearly his first crawls and steps and words. And look at him [...]
It’s funny few days ago I was telling my husband that nothing is going on this summer. It seemed strange for us not to be here, there, everywhere.
I know, I know, my blog has been totally neglected. I really don’t have an excuse – only that winding between parenting and creative time is – well – creative
It’s such a quiet time here right now. Seriously – I was longing for it for a long long time, but at the moment it feels a little bit strange.
