Yesterday I received a very precious gift from my friend Arzu in Istanbul. She is an artist and a designer, a "maker" actually. She loves making things, designing new solutions to daily problems. She is also a cat-mommy :) She made two brooches for me from felt, two figures that I had painted some time ago came to life in her stitches! You can imagine my surprise when I opened the package and saw them. One does not receive such thoughtful gifts everyday, you see! The fact that she took the time to make them for me, and that she chose something I had painted before made me so happy, I can hardly describe my feelings!

As usual we will visit some museums and attend concerts and as usual I take my sketchbag along!
My best friend Aliya has made this bag for me. She knows how much I love to sketch and how troublesome it can get sometimes to keep everything together. I love sketching in the museums. Nowadays they ask you to lock your bag in a locker in almost every museum and walking around with your hands full of pens and pencils and paper gets annoying. She designed and made this bag for me, you can see her other creations on her blog: http://poskakushka.blogspot.be/ She is a creative witch, and also a "maker". Constantly busy making things that make life easier and more beautiful. (the bag with the owls on her blog is mine too ;), don't get jealous!)

Amsterdam wait for me!
