The blog posts have become less frequent.
Surely some may wonder what Kukalka has been up to lately.
Of course I was not idle – The restless and creative mind always looks for a challenge. Although currently the body sets the pace.
Nevertheless, there is always something on do around the blog – like finishing the drawing of my logo or writing and drafting new sites and posts.
In addition, I am working on new patterns and tutorials, which should be available in my shop soon.
Also new dolls are in the making and thus will also soon be online.
Whether all this will happen before summer I can not say just yet, because currently something else is my priority –
namely peace and … …Relaxation
Those who already have been around here a while now, know that I like to draw. Not only with pencil or digitized on the computer. But I also like to experiment with oil and watercolor on canvas. Above all, it is very relaxing. For me painting is like meditation.
But there may also be times in which you like to let your mind wander, not thinking to hard and dive into colors – then something simple like a coloring book my do the trick. I currently use this, this and this coloring books for adults. If you have trouble getting your mind to rest, you should try it. After half an hour of coloring, the mind is clear and you can refocus again .
In this context some fresh air may help also along with some…
Finally spring is here. Just to be able to enjoy the sun and nature in the garden is a gift. It’s peaceful and quiet and exactly what the soul needs.
Quite wonderful it makes you dream, plan or read …
Currently I am back into reading quite a lot. So whenever I have to rest, but do not feel up to knitting, I just grab my kindle.
Right now I am fascinated with Maria V. . I already finished reading the Snyders books healer trilogy and now am reading the Ixia series. Those who like a little fantasy, history and politics á la Game of Thrones or Outlander, will certainly like these books.
Besides, I must confess that a new-found guilty pleasure for me nowadays is reading romance novels (in the broadest sense). Recently, for example, this or that– I blame it on the disturbing pregnancy hormones …;)
Just as my current penchant for cheesy songs like this, those or that… Hush !
And since it is no longer a secret…
…Yes, we’re Expecting!
