Dolls & Ordinary Life

A better year coming, hopefully!

Two cute girls ready for the New Year!
When 2015 started I felt that it was not going to be a good year. Maybe that jinxed the year, but I am glad that 2015 just has some hours left and that a new one is heading our way. Some of you are already there and I just hope that it feels like a good year for you. The clock over here is just half past nine in the evening. Later I will go out with the girls to see the fireworks, as we always have done.

I started this blog in early January 2015 and have slowly started to build up a place for me to meet other with the same interests all around the world. I have found many new friends and I am so glad about that. Thank you for being there, sending comments and love. 

I have found a new interest in painting again. I have bought some new materials and woke up my painting "skills" and found a new palette and a new basis to color - the monster high doll faces. That made me practice on symmetry, fantasy and to never give up aka handle my frustration. 

I am very glad for all the tiny little happy things that kept me going day by day, step by step. My mother passing away during the holidays (Christmas Eve 2014) made the year rather hard that followed. All happenings around and after that took a lot of energy and in some way made me sick. I am so happy that I have a strong husband and two daughters who understand. They have been my light, my guide, my help and support.

My dolls have helped me too, kept me focused on repainting, sewing, photography and that has been a good thing. For 2016 I hope that I will get more energy and time to keep the hobby going and even start to read. I miss my books and reading. And I miss my studies. It would be amazing to start again. 

I hope that 2016 gives me strength, enlightenment, heals me and revives me. And I hope 2016 gives you the best it ever can give. Happy 2016, I see you there!

  3. Osanottoni, ihanaa että aviomiehesi ja tyttäresi ovat tukeneet sinua tänä vaikeana vuotena. Hienoa että olet taas löytänyt taiteen nukkejen maalaamisen kautta, pienet asiat merkitsee niin paljon vaikeina aikoina. :) On ollut mukava katsella kuviasi ja lukea juttuja.

    Ihanaa uutta vuotta 2016 ja kiitos ystävyydestäsi. :)
