Putting together a box of buttons and 1+1


Today I was taking a photo of myself for a blog feature (more on that later!) and realized how different I will soon look. Yesterday I found out I need glasses, for reading, writing and creating. Strangely, it made me feel more grown-up. Everyone else in my family has glasses, and for some reason I have always thought that adults are supposed to wear glasses. Maybe I stop being such a kid now. I realize I'm a bit simple sometimes; I thought it was perfectly normal for things to become blurry if viewed from too close. A small part of me is excited, now I don't have to look the same all the time, but I also worry about losing my ridiculously expensive glasses the moment I get them. Everything changes. Every day I need to grow up. How silly, really. 


Anyway, I just wanted to share a glimpse of my messy (but tidied) work space. If you click to enlarge, you will see some Geninne's work on the background. The lighting is poor even in front of the window, as it was snowing when I took the photo, sorry about that. I could really use some sunshine already, enough with the snow and clouds...

Itse sain lukulasit pari vuotta sitten ja se olikin melkoinen ahaa-elämys kun pistin ne päähäni ensimmäistä kertaa. En todellakaan ollut huomannut kuinka huono näköni oli ollutkaan.

Kaikki rakastamani asiat olivat taas helppoja tehdä. Samaa onnea sinullekin.

Minun seinälläni on ihan sama Geninne, pianon päällä! Kaunis on!

Kun kerran kommentoin, sanonpa myös kiitokset joulukalenterista. Kaunis!
