New blog / Новый блог

Over the years I’ve accumulated several blogs: A general English one, two Russian ones, one about art, two with quotes I like, one with interesting news articles, one with thoughts, one with verses, one with my photos, one with digital art, one with digital finger paintingsone with my photos and paintings… It became too confusing. I want simplicity! One life – one blog. It is still a bit rough, but I’m working on it. So, it will be just this blog, the web page, Facebook, Pinterest & Twitter. Lets see what will happen…

За годы у меня скопилось несколько блогов на разные темы (см выше) и я стала в них путаться. Пытаюсь все свести в один. Если кому-то интересно, подписывайтесь лучше сюда.

Folk art cards

About a year or two ago somebody asked me to contribute greeting cards to a new website/customised cards company. I've spent a MONTH creating cards specially for this website. Recently it completely disappeared. I've been trying to contact the person behind this (still in my "friends" on facebook!) several times by various means but he completely ignores me. I don't know if he sold any of my cards or not... Such dishonesty.

So I am gradually moving some of the cards to my Zazzle shop.

I can't see where I am going...

I can't see where I am going... iPhone Case 

A doodle turned into a pretty folkish inusual pattern. Eyes, Butterflies, leaves. Inspired by a line from "A Song For Jeffrey" by Jethro Tull (Don't see, see, see where I'm goin' to).
