Flip-through of my Happy Book

Flip-through of my Happy Book

Today I want to show you what I use my “Happy book” for! I think it will be even more important during 2019 if I stick to my Happy Planner as my main planner. The perfect place to put anything and everything that just…makes me happy!

Time flies!

Time flies!

I can’t believe it’s bee two weeks since I visited my blog! Well, you know what they say – time flies when you’re having fun…

A little update:

November is here. 

I have a small obsession about leaves right now. The color, the shape, the texture…

My first school assignment is done. I haven’t got my feedback yet. Kind of nervous. I handled the nervous energy as I always do – turned it into something creative.

And I soon found out I needed dividers in my yellow “Happy book”. Fixed it myself!

And I got water! Running water, hot and cold! I’m in heaven…

Maybe the most important thing: my neighbor cut the grass. We now have no less than THREE big fields to train on. Niiiiice!

Oh, by the way: even if this blog has been silent, my Instagram is very much alive. I have three main accounts:

TheCreativeKelpie  if you’re all about planner stuff

KelpiePhotography if you like dog photos

and the brand new Kelpie.asa if you want to follow my life in general.

I’ve even learned to use Stories… 😀

Create something every day

Create something every day

Yesterday, I had a short workshop in the Family Corner at Falsterbo Horse Show on how to draw animals. My audience, two girls, asked me the best way to improve. My answer is simple: practice! And not only what you already know, new things that you haven’t tried before! Create something new every day. Big or small. With whatever tools you like.

I tend to use my camera, or just doodle something, and to help myself think in new ways I joined the Boho Berry Challenge this month. I have already shown some of my work on Instagram and FB, but wanted to just give an idea of how my mind works and how I thought about some of the challenges so far:

It would be easy to show a selection of the tools I use, pens, colors, stickers, and so on. But as I thought about it, I realized that this is the real truth.
I love ferns, I love green, I love patterns, and I love simplicity.
These two figures came to me last year, and they are supposed to be me and Midori. I really like them, they are easy to draw and to give different expressions. My style.
I thought about picking some flowers and glue on to the “nature” page, but I don’t do that normally. So I drew some of my favorite shapes instead: Poppy, butterfly and some kind of seed (maybe barley?) I actually love the whale. Something blue immediately got my mind into the water, and to me, blue symbolizes freedom and loneliness as well.
I’ve moved almost all my watercolors to my new house but had two small sets left. I love to use watercolor!
And some of my handwriting. Read the quote. Think about it.

Now go out, and create something today!

Doodle time!

Doodle time!

I love to draw and sketch and doodle. And I love dogs. So…you would think I would be good at doodling dogs, right? Wrong. I’m terrible at drawing dogs in any shape or form. Or WAS, to be correct!

The last week I have challenged myself to one dog doodle every day. So far I have made ten, I and plan to keep going for…as long as it’s fun.

You can follow my training, I do get better!

As my imagination is limited, I take requests. What breed do you want me to doodle?

And the easiest way to see them all is to follow me on Instagram!
