For the lighthouse to work properly it needs to have the light on.
Hello dear blog and my readers. I am dropping in on this last day of 2019 to sum up what happened from October till today. Loads actually, seeing from my daily photos.
I made a few books - watercolor sketchbooks to be precise. I got this gorgeous velvety patterened "paper" and it is perfect for a cover of such a book. I also realized I am the first who needs to be happy with the book and not to have too many options to choose from if I'm making it for someone else. Which I plan to do. I do. Not sure when but it's such a noble thing to me - to prepare this special space for someone to use and connect to their own Self. Yes, also very humbling.
I made two special junk journals too - for me and my new creative friend with whom I went to explore Prague with! Oh boy... this happened between 9-12th of December - it was down right awesome. Really. I so needed a break from this reality and what I found in Prague, definitely surprised me. There is some beautiful energy to be found and experienced there. I shall say no more but post a few photos :)
The rest of December kinda went by in the usual weird way. I really enjoyed doing Kasia's Advent Calendar art journaling each day - except for the last two days - those escaped me for no apparent reason, or at least I don't remember it now :)
The before mentioned junk journal proved really good to create in as I used it for both my Prague travel journal, Kasia's prompts and December's diary. I just love this rectangular-ish format and kraft paper mixed with old book pages and some yummy scraps of patterned papers. I definitely need to make more of them.
Also, our usual December visit to Vileš and Ikea was, this time, really successful :) So it needs to be mentioned!
All in all, my 2019 was pretty amazing. Loads happened - new friends came into my life, new experiences came, a bucket full of A-HA moments happened and quite a Healing & Reading was done at the beginning of December - everything perfectly timed of course, what else when the Universe is involved, right?
2020 brings, at least for now, two big challenges! Illustrating a lovely novel - which somehow got neglected in 2019 - and translating one of Guy Needler's books - The Anne Dialogues. Both are huge for me and both excite and challenge me to the brim of my current abilities. But I know I can count on help and so I shall just dive in.
I have no idea what exactly to do blogging wise. I wanted to start "made by nini" blog again and use it to post my artistic endeavours and I still might. It doesn't really matter does it? As long as I keep some kind of record for my own sake, these things are definitely fun to read and go through.
So, here I am waving byebye to 2019 - thank you so very much for being as you were - and welcoming the brand new 2020 - may you be as awesome as I wish you'd be, for EVERYONE!
Much love and light to all of us.
I seem to be a very creative being, explorer of greater realities and nature lover.
