Here and Now

It is autumn, as many of you already know:)

Life is good. I am very happy that I decided to home school for this year. Simply put--it feels right, it feels good and natural. My favorite time of the day is the morning, when we have a very quiet and SLOW breakfast, and I sip my cup of coffee and listen to the kid's stream of consciousness...I love hearing original and interesting things that come from their "inside", to me that shows the wonder of the "self" and the root of creativity. Finally after almost a year of trying to teach them at home I feel at ease with what is happening and am very pleased with the results.
Here are some of our recent autumn inspired colorful moments.

Ligreego and her fairy tales are a long time favorite of mine. I have been "watching" her for a few years now. Click the images to go to her flickr page.

We are into Clay these days

Sculpey to be more precise.
I can not paint lately for some strange internal reason, and the only salvation is playing with sculpey. That has been my long time proven by years therapy in days when painting is not an option.

And strange as it may seem (ha ha) my kids are into sculpey too. As we are bound to spend most of the time together we tend to pick up each others hobbies. For example now I know all the Star Wars character and even their Battle Tech numbers (some of you may know what it is, some may not know ant they might be better off not knowing)
So here they are from my youngest ( Anna 3.4 year old), then Andrei 5.9 year old, and then myself.
They do all the work themselves, I do not touch the creations.

P.S. Should I try selling these, what do you think?

Everlasting Theme

Love. Whenever I am lacking ideas I go back to this topic. Going through old photos of my Grandmother, Mother and myself, thinking of the early romance that turns everything in life into a magical story...

Movie Monday 48

Plastilin Crow is something I grew up watching. Having grown up and seeing it over and over again, I see that the colors could be brighter and the quality of the image a bit better--but the characters are genial. The dog is my favorite one.

Autumn in the Air

The air is getting fresh and chilly, the winds are blowing, the leaves start their travels to the ground. The tree sprites sigh and talk quietly before going into their long sleep.
