I wouldn’t call myself a cat person even though saying that only a monster wouldn´t find a kitten cute. So when a friend of my parents wanted to make a children’s book with lots of drawing of her cat as a kitten I decided to accept the challenge. The cat that the book is based around sadly passed away last summer and the book will be a nice way to look back at the best memories. This project has been going on for about two years now but this April I plan to be done!
A draft that´s meant to be later in the book where the cat named Nils have grown up a bit more
There beautiful house
The first portrait in the book of him as a kitten
And finally a draft for the cover!
So now we have left 2015 behind us and are looking for the future in 2016. But I still want to take a moment to look back at 2015. It was the year I went to Paris, were really into vintage and secondhand, getting three new bunny´s, maid the BEST gingerbread house, drawed A LOT and started a new education.
i am Looking forward to 2016 and hope you do to!
(yes i have been watching way to musch gossip girl)
Time has gone by so far and tomorrow is the 24th. This year I have finally had time to do all the stuff I only dreamed to have time time for. I have maid a gingerbread house, made my own christmas candy and maid the hole house as christmasy as it can get.
I have also maid a lot of of the gifts myself. I love to get something homemade and to give stuff that you really put effort into.
For my best friend Agnes that are a really notebook junky like myself I decided to buy a few of my favorite notebooks from Muji. I then had the fun part in front of me covering them with cute quotes and personalized drawings.
This is it all wrapped up 🙂
This is the first notebook she opened. Agnes that is the name of my friend and this book it´s the thought that she is going to write her blog ideas in. On the other side I maid little teacups and chocolate chip cookies because she often drink something when she blogs.
Me and Agnes once had this English teacher that loved to teach us little quotes, melodies and stories. For example he thought us the hole song from Alice in wonderland (the one that the rabbit sings) Because I to love Alice in Wonderland I thought it wasn´t more than appropriat to have that text on a notebook. I continued with drawing numbers on the bakside and writing her a little message.
Agnes dream dog is a Canaan dog. So why not make that? In the end it turned out to not look like a canaan dog at all but ah it´s cute any way. I then draw a few flowers and a gold frame.
I maid this with the thought of her writing her thoughts ,ideas and more philosophy stuff. I bought the washy with Agnes in mind. I then drawed a more calm pattern.
The finall notebook I took one of our old drawings that we maid toghter under a break in one of my old school books. I then wrote her name and then filled it up with grafic pattern. Red and blue as oppisite sides warm and cold. Agnes said she´s going to eventually use this as a diary wich I think it´s perfect for.
Agnes gave me two lush bathbombs witch I just loved! Now my hole room smells like heaven or if not even better.
Happy birthday toooo you, Happy birthday tooo you, Happy birthday dear Grandma, happy birthday to YOU!🎉
Today my beloved Grandma is turning 92!!! And as a little gift too her I will mention it her that I am making her a drawing of nothing less then herself!
So her she is so far… And I will Update wen it’s all done!
