in need of sun
26 February 2010

I have been tagged - 7 x about me
23 February 2010
this time by Amy....I have to tell you 7 things about myself.....
1. one of my dreams is to go to Brazil...M. wanted to take me for my 30th but I was pregnant...my 33th birthday on Copa Cabana might be nice.
2. I love to dance..... These days I'm very limited to jumping around our living room with Anya listing to Black Eyed Peas ( she loves them..:) and her new favourite Shakira...not at all my usual choices...but it's good fun.
3. I love blogging, and the whole thing about it... I think one point you have to decide if you want to be a diary or a magazine. I think I became a diary with pictures.
4. I love to sleep, lately not much...but A. has a new game..."sleeping".... 'dolly sleeping, Anya sleeping' and then mummy sleeping...5. I walk. everywhere.
6. I'm a night person. In ideal world I go to bed at 1 am and get up at 10am. So I go to bed at 1 am and get up at 7am.
7. When I was 17 I had dark blue hair ...very nice...
tell us 7 things about yourself if you want...if you don't...no worries...
The sun came out for a bit on Saturday, which was wonderful, I so hoped the spring is here. We went to a local park with promise of a long trip on Sunday, but the weather was awful. It has been raining and raining and raining. Never mind, I'm getting super organised here in our house and lists are getting smaller and smaller:). I went out for a dinner with M. as well, so this weekend was...great!

I have been doing more sorting out, organizing, decluttering, little bit of shopping and spending time with my family. This weekend is purely my little daughter and husband. I'm switching off this laptop and putting papers and scissors into a cupboard. Hopefully the weather will be nicer and we can go for a little trip ...I need fresh air desperately and I want spring!!! What are you going to do? anything nice? Enjoy your weekend everyone!
inexpensive clever ideas
16 February 2010
Picture 1 : An old door found in a skip, covered with an old sheet, painted white and song lyrics wrote across it.
Picture 2: MDF boards covered with wallpaper, they can be moved around the house, when you move, make into a headboard...
some of the books on these shelves are only for display, bought in junk shops, cut in the middle, glued together, hiding electricity meter behind.
fresh new week
15 February 2010
Hello everyone! Sorry for not being around but I just didn't want to bore you with the same old story, how busy or tired I was. After three weeks of doing night shifts, making pictures, I'm back to normal life. Over this weekend I had time to do big clear out, loads of stuff went to the loft, charity shops, shed (which is bursting) bin, ebay...Oh I love decluttering!
I'm really pleased with my new work space. I might move the photo gallery somewhere else, change the lampshades...but for now it's perfect.
I did want to say one more thing...thank you! to all my customers, not on the hight street, apartmenttherapy, petitandcutedesign, alovelyescape blog, fleuravenue, hapi-ness, iadorestyle and to all other kind people who mentioned my pictures last couple of weeks.
And what about you? how have you been?

A. loves reading
6 February 2010
She climbs up and throws books down
they all flying down....
but then she picks them up...
I know, I said I won't be blogging but I so need a break! and tomorrow is my name day (7.2. Veronika in Czech Republic, where I'm originally from). Not many countries celebrate it but I think it's shame. It's like a little birthday. Every day of the year is associated with someone's name. And mine is tomorrow.
One of the presents I got today was a book from my sister. Jack's Kerouac On the Road. I first read it when I was sixteen and I still love it. This book is very special to me and also this particular one is done in the same style as the original... Kerouac typed the manuscript on what he called "the scroll":a continuous, one hundred and twenty-foot scroll of tracing paper sheets that he cut to size and taped together. The roll was typed single-spaced, without margins or paragraph breaks.......
today I sent my heart no.136
3 February 2010
As you might have guessed, due to lack of my posting I have been extremely busy. I know, again, but this time I'm really BUSY!. Today I sold picture 136! (started selling mid of Oct.)Big thank you to my husband, huge support and time provider, and to you all for that wonderful feedback and comments. I also read so many comments around web, about 'copying' my hearts, makes me feel quite special:)... I won't be posting for rest of the week, have a great one!
