I went on a date yesterday:) With my husband of course:) We went to see the Illusionist , from the makers of the Triplettes of Belleville. The animation was beautiful, the scenery was drawn amazingly. The story is very philosophical and not very optimistic, but it makes you think. And the music--it was great. I kept hoping for a happy end, but it was more of a "life goes on" end just like it happens in real life.

I am busy working on a couple of custom orders , felting here and there and homeschooling. This winter has been very productive so far, since we do not spend too much time outside (it's soooo cold there!) The kids are busy building their own little worlds for the toy animals. The Moomins with their ship are a big hit and it started a whole new cycle of games. I am happy to observe them building, cooking and sowing. The games are lasting days at a time and I feel very glad that I ordered this Moomin ship all the way from Finland.

This has been a very snowy winter for us here in NYC. The day when I painted these rabbits it was snowing heavily and me and the kids were home warm and cozy, painting, learning, drinking tea. I like days like this. The rabbit watercolor is listed on Etsy, both print and original.
And my felting experiments continue, I have already half a dozen various critters. Some of them have been given to my little ones to play and some I am listing in my shop. Please come by and check them out!
