oh hello.

it has been a while. a long long while.

since i've written. since i've even dropped by to say hello.

lately, i've been writing things down here

in this little place.

senseless ramblings,

as there always have been here.

it would be sweet if you do drop by and say hello.

oh hello.

it has been a while since i've written here.

or even just visited here.

saturday. i'm in the midsts of cleaning house.

and procrastinating such in the same breath.

so i've just poured myself another cup of coffee

and finally decided that i really do need and want my babushkas.

can't really explain it.

but i've been fascinated with the nesting dolls since i was a little girl

and i've never had one,

and on the spur of the moment i decided to see what ebay has to offer.

oh lovely surprising.

and a hard time making up my mind, which babushka it will be.

i finally picked one

and i reckon she'll be in the bedroom

or maybe downstairs in my office

however definitely on window sills.

this shop really had a lovely selection

and i was hoping for a seven piece or a ten piece

but it was the pink that caught my heart with these fine ladies.

pink and spring seem to be words that walk hand in hand.

oh george clooney. [20 Mar 2006|03:53pm]
and it all started as a joke,

or maybe wishful thinking between two friends...

but if you're in canada and watching CTV's eTalk at 7pm...

you just might see elaine from www.laineygossip.com wearing one of these.

oh dear. what have me and tamara done?

poesie. [05 Feb 2006|09:57pm]

it has been a long time since i've posted, hasn't it?

but today is sunday and perfect reason to make time for the playful things in life again.

i've been working on a new line and collection for my little small omondieu! world.

actually, two new lines and collections. however, today was all about the poesie.

and that's what i've called her. the poesie collection.

i've just received the samples of the shirts and although it might still be a spell

before i'm able to add them to the website.

but today was play with the camera day.

i had images in mind for these photos, however the snow and cold

wouldn't really allow for those photos to happen just yet.

we'll have to wait for spring.

and i also feared that i might have a tunnel vision in shooting these,

simply for creating, designing and working so in depth with the project,

sometimes you lose a perspective

or don't always see things as you like.

and then when lenny bo benny decided that he was going to eat the flash off the camera,

i definitely knew i couldn't get this done.

steffi had mentioned a few times that she'd like to use omondieu! for a photo production

and while recently at her house, i knew just the location itself was perfect.

so today, steffi did her magic.

and together with susie. and of course, scotch the cat.

i just took snapshots. behind the scenes.

documenting a sunday afternoon. and poesie.

Live with intention. Walk to the edge.

Listen hard. Practice wellness.

Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret.

Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends.

Do what you love.

Live as if this is all there is.

it's rare that i find myself here these days.

wondering how everyone has been.

i'm off and away to hamburg tomorrow morning.

hoping to finish new projects and ideas.

and i am so welcoming

the change of scenario.

new places. new faces.

and of course, being just that much closer to sea.

will be back on tuesday.

and here's me hoping that much good and much work happens.

as well as just as much play.

If there is at least one person in your life whom you consider a close friend,

and whom you would not have met without the internet,

post this sentence in your journal.

names fascinate me.

sometimes, i think they are the most personal thing we have, given to us.

if you could name yourself,

what would it be?

what is september to you?

where does she leave you?

what memories does she hold?

and what dreams does she promise?

does she leave you warm,

or cold?

what is september to you?

september leaves me homesick.

it leaves me daydreaming and longing.

i'm listening to songs right now, that feel like september.

jann arden is singing cherry popsicle to me right now.

and yes, that's september.

and all morning, daydreaming, dancing, singing to feist

but i'll write all about her tomorrow in wundertuete

canadian singers and songwriters have always been a lovely thing,

but on september days, all the more.

maybe that's just my "too far from home" voice calling me?

and singing her lull?

i need more coffee.

i have to go to the loo.

and both since the past hour.

but i'm almost too lazy to go upstairs.

or i keep saying i'll finish whatever i'm working on

and then go.

and yes. i've been playing this game for an hour with myself.

but i really really want that coffee.

and the loo too.

so. i'll just finish what i'm working on...

[some days, i feel like i'm my own best enemy.]

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark. In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all, do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach. The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."

Ayn Rand, (1905 - 1982), Atlas Shrugged

trying to remind myself...

"Be daring, be different, be impractical,
be anything that will assert integrity of purpose
and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers,
the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."

~ Sir Cecil Beaton

possibly shameless self promotion

but if you ask me, for a very good cause.


share a bit of wundertuete with your friends too?

and for those of you in los angeles, there's a launch party for designers against aids

taking place on the 27th of august.

i reckon you all should go.

just stumbled across these words.

thinking how beautiful they are.

with every act of love you do today,

you weave one more golden thread in the blanket that will warm you tomorrow.

it reminds me of gaylene. as the word weave always does.

but it reminds me of life and in days that feel a bit heavy and tired as of late,

it brings back a smile. a small reminder.

so i carry on weaving.

and what is your act of love today?

Superheroes ain't got nothing on you right now.

You're in the zone, and just about everything you touch will turn to platinum. Now make sure you use those powers for goo, all right?

these are the days and hopes i like.
