I am a 30-something artist/craftswoman who finds a creative outlet from everyday life in the arts. Be it the art of painting, the crafts or the art of cooking, I embrace it with the same ardor and passion! This blog is the diary of my crafty life with a side of wit. Enjoy a look around and see what I am all about.

It's been some time since I took a couple of days off. It felt refreshing to stay in bed a bit longer, go for a stroll and not rush to work, cook some dishes that take just a bit longer... Continue Reading →
A long holiday weekend could only mean one thing: games, games and more games! We dusted off an older volume on our shelf, partook in some gentle tile-laying, went mad (twice) and rolled a lot of dice. However, we made... Continue Reading →
