Art Nouveau Moley


For March moley journal I did a spread on the theme of Art Nouveau; William Morris style for redplantlady. Very not my style. 

Last week we went to the city and the kid wanted to look at the water when we were passing a bridge over the river. When he was looking, he said, mommy cat. And I was like, no there's no cat. He insisted there was a cat so I looked over the bridge and there was this huge rat like animal just hanging around on the grass area and then took a swim. I knew it wasn't a rat or an otter but I couldn't remember how it's called. The closest I could come to was muskrat but it wasn't that either.

Then we went to visit my great aunt. I'm pretty sure every family has a person that knows an answer to any question you have (and an interesting story to go along with it) no matter how strange it is. I knew this aunt would know what kind of animal it was and even before I could show her the video I took of it, she already had an answer for me (and a story to go along with it). It was nutria. There, mystery solved, just like that.

Flowers in her hair

It's springtime. :) That means itchy eyes for me but I still love it. Hazel tree is my nemesis and unfortunately it grows like weed around here. The other day I saw a crow land on it's branch and it let out this yellow cloud of pollen from the male catkins (yes, I had to google that). It was fascinating to see though.

It's also time to harvest dandelions before they start to bloom. It's my favorite kind of salad. Do you eat it?

To update you on my spring cleaning. My winter clothes are almost all gone. I have still to tackle the summer clothes.

Pink Paris Girl

I guess it's that time of the year when you have to do some spring cleaning. I usually avoid it but I tackled the chaos that is my wardrobe this week. Granted I can't do much with the kid hanging around so I took opportunity on the day my hubby was home.

Let me preface this a bit. I have 7 cats and 2 dogs. They used to have free access to all the rooms in my home until that flea infestation fiasco and I kicked them out of my bedroom. It was hard because they're clever and know how to open doors. That said, they know how to open drawers as well as they provide a soft nest to sleep in. Long story short I had 3 full drawers of clothes covered in cat hair.

I cleverly skipped one since it was my hubby's and he can deal with it and one had all my socks and underwear in. Ok, I must say that these drawers didn't get used much, one (1.) because they were covered with fur, two (2.) because I have another set of drawers in the bathroom downstairs where I usually get dressed so I ignored this problem for a while.

Yeah, this task took me a couple of hours alone which is baffling to me because I thought I'd just throw stuff away. But when you actually go through the clothes you kind of feel bad for getting rid of them if they're well preserved.

I actually had an inkling once before to go through my wardrobe but then I opened it and saw that these are still clothes I'd wear today if they fit me. You know, all that "I'll lose weight and wear them" thinking. Safe to say the clothes are still there.

With their Pet

I hosted this particular swap once before and I loved the results it gave so I did it again. We had 2 columns. You had to choose a person or a character from the first column and draw their pet from the second column of animals.

I have a question for you today that I'd love for you to answer. What do you do on a daily basis that makes your life exciting? I feel like my life is very monotonous and boring and I'd love to change things up a bit to get some "fresh air" in my daily routine.

Favorite things Moley

February's moley journal for Zandradee on the theme of "things that make you happy". She also asked us to get out of our comfort zone in regards to the media we usually use and try to experiment. So I went for mostly collage.

My three favorite things here are travel, reading books (Pride and Prejudice still being my favorite) and Fennec fox. I couldn't repeat favorite things that others did before me, so I had to think really hard to come up with something else. Here is my list:
  • my baby boy (obviously I couldn't put photos of my kid in someone else's art journal)
  • baby animals
  • my pets (everyone's favorite thing a.k.a. cats and dogs)
  • listening to music
  • making ATCs
  • cake
  • tattoos
  • being vegan
What makes you happy?
