I love you this much!

This T-Rex humor is adorable, Leah! The way you’ve drawn them is so cute!

It’s so funny how their hands are really small, and it makes it even funnier when I imagine them hugging. That would be such an awkward hug :3

Thank you so much!

Neat & Keen – The Great Crane Giveaway

I received something very unusual. It was a brown envelope and when I opened it a brochure came out of it and The Great Crane Postcard. I honestly don’t remember how I applied for this, or how it came to me, but I am so glad it did!

The 5 x 7 inch origami crane is a 3-color silkscreen print signed, numbered, and printed by hand at Neat & Keen Studios by John Everett Morton in DeKalb, IL. While 1000 is quite a bit for a limited edition print, it relates to the Japanese tradition of folding 1000 origami cranes in return for good luck or one wish granted.

The Great Crane postcard

Food postcard from Germany

One of the reasons I love postcrossing is that I get food 😀

DE-5009015 , and I am the lucky girl to get this unfortunately non-eatable card.

It’s all written in German, front, back, everywhere, and I love it.

I also adore the stamp. Haven’t received one like that before!

THANK YOU !

Production of ceramics – Singapore, and how much power a postcard can have

wp-1457468386769.jpg

One of my favorite postcards. Not because it’s from reddit. Or because it’s large. It is from Singapore, from /u/duosharp, but the fact that makes her special is how the artist showed the production of ceramics in a single picture.

Look at this everyday life. Isn’t it amazing? When you drink tea and sit in your comfortable chair at home, next to the fireplace, do you think who made those tea pots and ceramic tools? No, I haven’t though about it, either. But now I did. This postcard had the power to make me see how much effort people put in stuff everyday. Not only to make a tea pot, but to make a lot more stuff, touchable and untouchable, that we don’t even realize.

It made me think that today, I drove my sister to her handball practice, and it doesn’t mean anything, not to me, not to her, but if that didn’t happen, she would have missed practice. If the people didn’t make the tea pot, maybe we wouldn’t have been drinking tea today, eh?

Duosharp, thank you for opening my eyes with a single postcard. Each postcard has such power. We only need to see it 😉

Time to celebrate! First patreon!

Today is my lucky day for sure! It is Women’s day, and I am happy for that, but of all, I am happy because I have people that support me in my art.

I have a Patreon site, and today I got my first patron, my first supporter of my work. It means so much to me, and I hope Games for Toys sees this!

You can see my work there too if you want:

And no, I won’t forget! Happy Women’s Day to all women around the world. Especially to my mum! Mum, I wish you were here today, but we’ll be together soon. I miss you! And I love you!
