Hello there LLona

hey I just realized I have been spelling your name wrong since I first came across you.

I am making an effort to go and read on blogs of people I have on my blog reader list. It is interesting to be looking through your blog and seeing how its probably not so easy to be keeping your creative mind and hands moving along with caring for Aato, your little child (hope I spelt that correctly). I find the images from your sketchbook to be the most interesting in the main where its just line and tone and ideas jotted down.
Colour and pattern and decoration can be quite distracting when trying to filter ideas . Thats just me though - maybe its completly
the opposite for you.!!! Today the temperature in Scotland went up three degrees in our house so we are not utterly freezing anymore - thank goodness.

By the way PLEASE will you enable the

"Follow By Email" gadget in the LAYOUT area of your Dashboard.
Then it's much easier for me and other followers to keep informed when you create a new post on your blog.

If you do get this set up ( its very easy) then please do email me and let me know

please also mention name of your blog as I find myself having to ask a lot of people to enable this gadget. I wish Google would contact all their bloggers to point this possibility out to them's hoping
best wishes

Aine Scannell
