Hello again! And again I´m starting a new project... this time it will last a whole year. You can see a pile of empty pages on the corner of my desk. They will turn to four little art journal books called "Countdown to the end of the time". That´s because of the Mayan calendar. My art journal starts at this winter solstice and continues to the next winter solstice on 21. December 2012, when the Mayan calendar ends, and the new world era will begin...
The pages are rather thick, Canson´s 300g/m2 water colour paper, so they will withstand heavy handling.
Despite the title, the book will be in Finnish. Sorry, but it´s easier to me ;)

No niin... taas alkaa uusi projekti, joka kestää koko vuoden. Pöydän reunalla on nyt pino tyhjiä sivuja, joista on tulossa neljä pientä "art journal" kirjaa nimeltään "Countdown to the end of the time". Nimi juontuu Maya kalenterista. Kirja alkaa nyt tästä talvipäivän seisauksesta ja jatkuu seuraavaan talvipäivän sisaukseen 21. joulukuuta 2012, jolloin siis loppuu Mayojen kalenteri ja uuden maailmankauden pitäisi alkaa...
Sivut ovat aika paksuja, Cansonin 300g/m2 akvarellipaperia, joten kestävät kovempaakin käsittelyä.
Nimestä huolimatta kirja tulee olemaan suomeksi - ainakin pääosin ;)

Also decoration continues. Last week you saw my "new" sideboard, standing in the middle of our living area, and being far too large to fit there...
So we changed our sofa to a smaller one. Now the sideboard can stand by the wall. We are surprised to find an empty space on the corner!!!

Ja sisustaminen jatkuu. Viime viikolla näitte "uuden" senkin keskellä meidän olohuonetta, ollen aivan liian suuri mahtuakseen siihen...
Niinpä vaihdoimme sohvamme pienempään. Nyt saimme senkin seinän viereen. Olemme kyllä hämmästyneitä tyhjästä nurkasta!!!

As you can see there are - besides my little jungle - a lot of stuff! We are collecting almost everything :)

Kuten näette, tavaraa riittää - pienen viidakkoni lisäksi! Meillä kerätään lähes kaikkea :)

I´m wishing a very Happy Christmas to all of my Friends!!!
Toivotan oikein Onnellista Joulua kaikille Ystävilleni!!!

  1. What an interesting project to embark on. I've read a lot about the Mayan calendar as I'm very interested in it. Even the descendants of the Mayans acknowledge that it's going to be the dawn of a new age not the end of the world as some doom merchants say. A great title - I hope you keep us updated as to your progress with it.
    I'm celebrating the Solstice and Yule today as well.
    Wishing you joy and happiness for 2012!
    Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

  2. I hope we see stages of your fabulous project as it progresses through the year. It should be so interesting and beautiful too.
    I can see the Yukka but no decorations yet.... don't forget to let us see it dressed up for Christmas. Such a good idea.
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a Peaceful, Healthy and Happy New Year. With love and thanks for your blogging friendship!

  5. Sounds like a great project there Tuire, my attention span is way too short to do something for an entire year though! Love the jungle, I have one too! Have a wonderful Christmas.
