Summer – finally!

Finally my fabric swatch by Spoonflower arrived!

Finally my fabric swatch by Spoonflower arrived!

 

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 turned out, but surprisingly it looks very hand drawn indeed. So I am happy with it and you can also have it hereContinue reading »

A little of everything

I missed moutains for a long, long time. For our anniversary we treated us with beloved views.

I missed mountains for a long, long time. For our anniversary we treated us with beloved views.

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. So I guess we really seized these days. Continue reading »

Babi (Grandma)

I really like this picture of grandma. It reminds me how life is changing. When we "got her" she was different but her mind always stayed youthful. Always.

I really like this picture of grandma. It reminds me how life is changing. When we "got her" she was different but her mind always stayed youthful. Always.

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. Continue reading »

Catching my breath

I can honestly say that this Lovebirds art is the piece of the week. The sign on their wings says love - always.

I can honestly say that this Lovebirds art is the piece of the week. The sign on their wings says love - always.

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 couldn’t do it anymore. Hi listened awhile and than he said: “What? You want to quit after 5 months of your business. That is not something I would expect for you! Stop whining and go to sleep.” I went to sleep and it in the morning I was good :). Continue reading »

Business? Yes, please!

These were made to fly from my home :).

These were made to fly from my home :).

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 sudden your art is put on the side. Now it’s time for marketing, paper works, bureaucracy, finding new ways to sell your work. And suddenly you realised you are still in  still is time you have to go to pick your kids and your ponytail you’ve put so nicley together  in the morning changed in weirdest hairdo ever.

A time for share art and do some shopping at TCC market place.

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 place. Continue reading »

Soul journey to the place where women create part 1

Last view of our country (yes, it's Triglav).

Last view of our country (yes, it's Triglav).

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 my dreams was a quite big deal.

His first minute four years ago ... and yesterday morning on our bed celebration.

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 now!!! Continue reading »
