gratitude + dilkabear

I stopped by Dilkabear on Etsy the other day,
and I was absolutely delighted by what I saw!
I love the color of the new work.
{new to me, anyway}
When I look at these pieces, I feel as if I am wrapped in
a warm blanket on a frosty cold day.
Or, perhaps, suspended in time
in a magical dreamworld.

I love them.


I have also decided to use this blog as a gratitude journal of some sort.
At the bottom of each post, I will be listing five things that I am thankful for at the time.
Sometimes it just feels good to write them down...
I am grateful that I live close enough to school so that I can walk, and enjoy these last few warm days.
I am grateful for green tea.
I am grateful for all of the amazing artists whose work inspires me to push my limits.
I am grateful for my Dodger & Lola, who make little snoring sounds that put a smile on my face.
I am grateful for my husband, who is the neediest sick patient ever...but it is kind of cute.

Have a lovely day~

Beautiful artwork, thanks for posting. She's in my favorites over on Etsy but sometimes I need to be reminded to go check things out!

I also wanted to ask you a question if you don't mind. I'd like to experiment with colored pencils and was wondering which kind you prefer? I love the vibrant colors on the ACEO I purchased from you!

Love the gratitude list. When I'm feeling super negative, I bust out this tiny little journal & I write down as many good things in my life as I can think of. It's amazing what a little perspective can do.
