Sunny days and deco-times!

Yellow Hellow!

The spring has finally arrived!! For the last two days the weather has been sunny and warm and wonderful! On this week I've seen my first flowers and butterflies and bugs of this year! And still I've been terribly tired. :( I don't know is it the sleep dept from the past year or something else. It doesn't feel the kind of tiredness that is result from sleeping badly. I guess I'll have to see a doctor and ask for some blood tests. But I think it's nothing serious. Probably just a low hemoglobine or so.

There's a bumblebee hiding in a flower! Do you find in which one? 8-)

There was an exciting Saturday a week ago. Ruu went to his first sleepover at his grandparents while me and Teemu went to a friend's housewarming party and had some relationship-quality time (without the child) at the very first time since Ruu was born. It was fun and everything had gone ok with Ruu. :) Though when we came home I started missing my baby-boy so badly! I stood in the doorway of his room for a long while feeling wistful and the whole room smelled like him! Oh well, that is probably just normal mother behaviour... ;) 

I baked some cake pops to the housewarming party!

Yesterday I did some decoing for a long time (for definately TOO long, it had been almost 1 and a half year without any deco-times!!) at two of my great deco swapping friends'. :3

For those who are wondering what the heck I'm talking about, here is a short summary: Decos (or decorative friendship books) are small selfmade booklets that are mailed from penpal to penpal. Decos travel the world, going from one decorator to another. Each decorator or signer adds their work to a single blank page of the deco, and then passes it along to the next person. In traditional deco swapping, there is no set list of people to whom a deco will be passed, so you never know who will work in your book, or when it will be completed and arrive back home. Decos are all about making something beautiful. (Origin: )

It was SO much fun and I'll must make some deco-entries soooon again! I was missing that kind of activity, but as a mother of a young child it's sometimes hard to find own time to do the favourite things one used to do before..

Here's what I achieved ("Ralla" is my nickname used in decos):

"Ralla ...clear pleasure! - The Havi palm soap"
The photos and texts are from the same ad in an old magazine.
The facial expression of the man is priceless, I think :D

"Real tickets"-entry

Eeeerm... A pornish entry to a Queer-themed deco.
Didn't quite end up the way I wanted, bleh.

Some more treasures from old women's magazines...
"Is it forbidden - from young girls?"

And this is the end of this post. Have a wonderful week!
