These streets and views in different weather became very familiar to me during November, a month in a residency in Reykjavík. My Travelogue grew in wind, in snowy days and in sunshine and frost pinching nose. With dear new friends and so many shared teacups and cakes, songs of ravens. The lighthouse was twinkling, the Aurora Borealis danced on the sky. Swimming water was warm, the mountains snowy. The paintings were done with the support from Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

If you are looking something to give to your dearest, these are some items available with my illustrations:
Breathe and Be, A Book About Mindfulness Poems illustrated book, also available here
Blue Skies umbrella
Red Cap Cards stationary
In Flight temporary tattoos
Mon Herbier herbarium book
Casa di fiaba illustrated book
L'ours et le soleil illustrated book
Spring Allotment poster
Garden of A Moon Gazer poster
Dandelion Fields Box of Labels
Dandelion Fields Notecards

Kisses, warmth, long walks and snowy peaks!

On a rainy day finally indoors, cleaning shelves and arranging: a few packs of 11 Greeting Cards for Red Cap Cards added to my small online shop, including three foil cards. Good for the ones especially living in Europe, no custom fees. Many happy moments and wishes!

The mornings and all the colours of the leaves. Lots of bicycling, rowing, walking and a few ice-creams when the summer momentarily came back. Now the raindrops calm down.

Drip. Drop. Drip. Drip-drip. Drop. Drip.

More summer trips, caravan journeys, nights in a tent, long walks. This summer is so sweet. Friends are so sweet.

When I started six years ago as an entrepreneur, I had no clue how to manage. No-one has, I guess. Slowly I was contacted by amazing people and I was always surprised. I still am. Thank you all and everyone for your comments, emails, letters, postcards, inquiries and warm words. Now that I am back at work on full speed and the summer starts to turn to an end but still continuing, I think a lot how things are. They are so sweet. All the things.

Thank you, thank you!

One of the most sweet thing is Red Cap Cards. Carrie, Hal and Arlo have believed in my work lasting for more than twenty different greeting cards. And this summer there is something very special, which is now available. The Summer Collection consist of three new greeting cards with foil, three wrapping paper and two notebooks with foil from each talented: Becca Stadtlander, Kelsey Garrity Riley, Carolyn Gavin, Kate Pugsley, Dinara Mirtalipova, Yelena Bryksenkova and me. Violet Birdy, White Calendula and April Bouquet can be seen and purchased here and they are also available for wholesale.

You can see more here and hereHope you enjoy them!

And thank you so much darling Red Cap Cards!
