Its 2020. Last year was complicated. They say time goes faster when you grow older and so it seems. A lot happened and very little happened.  The year certainly wasnt a financial success for me and I must improve that. My plan is to concentrate on digital products (which you can find through my site). And make more art and stuff like that.  During 2019 I came to terms with something rather big. This realisation was a high point and gave me a sense of freedom. I am non-binary.  I didnt post… Financial Success, I Site, How To Plan, How To Make, Give It To Me, Branding, Shit Happens, High Point, Digital

Lately Ive been playing around with the Lightroom app. I dont know why I havent been using it more.  Im especially into creating my own presets to make the photo editing process faster.  This sunset is also from my trip to my childhood home somewhere up north. Finland is a pretty big country and we have lots of different kinds of landscapes. Plus at least for now pretty distinct seasons. And as much as it is a cliche I do love sunsets.  What sort of view makes you feel relaxed serene and… Big Country, Country Roads, Do Love, Make You Feel, Finland, Sunsets, Lightroom, Serenity, Photo Editing

After a week surrounded by snow and nothingness its weird to return home. Here theres only thin white frost on the ground. And suddenly it feels like theres too much people everywhere. We went for joulu to my childhood home at countryside where my parents still live. There as you step out the door you are surrounded by quietness. Time feels slower everything slows down. What a contrast to all the busy and noisy of a city life. (Thank you for the photo @tonijauhiainen.) How have you been…

Dec 10: Gift  For a while now Ive wanted some sort of an activity/fitness tracker. Im mainly interested tracking my sleep but also counting my steps during a day and measuring my heartbeat now and then.  This tracker @tonijauhiainen bought for me arrived about a week ago. Its Mi Band 4 a very simple tracker that tracks steps heartbeat exercise and sleep. Plus you can get different phone and app notifications on it. And you can even control the music playing on the phone.  So far its been… About A Week Ago, Fitness Tracker, In A Heartbeat, Sorting, Sleep, Exercise, App, Canning, Ejercicio

Dec 9: Santa  Here in Finland Santa is known as Joulupukki. Diirect translation of Joulupukki is Yule Goat. And yes originally he was dressed as a goat with horns and all.  He was a frightening character often bringing punishment for naughty kids. Of course Christianity then mixed this tradition with Catholic Saint Nicholas to create the Santa you know these days.  Ive always known Joulupukki as looking and somewhat acting like the Coca-Cola Santa.

Dec 8: Morning  Not an early bird or morning person this one. Ive never been.  I wont be quite awake until afternoon no matter how early I wake up or go to sleep. As a matter of a fact going to sleep isnt as easy as getting into bed and closing my eyes. Especially if I do it too early.  People tend get all upset when they learn someone doesnt follow their daily rhythm. Like its personal to them.

Day 7: Homemade  As a kid one of my favourite things during midwinter celebrations was doing these scent bombs of tangerines or clementines and cloves.  You just take a tangerine and poke the cloves through its skin. Simple pretty affordable and full of lovely and not too overwhelming scent.  Ive seen these done from oranges too but never tried it myself. At least not yet.  I think that was most of the allure of this time of the year for me back then.

Dec 6: Small  Its usually the small things that make the life the most enjoyable. The little moments simple gestures small words of kindness. A nice cup of warmth and understanding.  Often people think their small actions and gestures dont count. Nobody will notice anyway.  But thats not true. Every little thing adds to something big eventually.  You never know how much your little kindness or tiny amount of attention can mean to someone else. Probably more than youd think.

Dec 5: The Weather Today  ...is frightful.  Rain and this wind that sounds like it tries to break the windows. Nope I didnt go out. Its warm and safe indoors. Best to hide under a blanket and watch some Netflix.  People and companies are doing their yearly wrap ups. Its funny since theres still close to a month left of this year. So much can happen.  Then again maybe thinking of time in these chunks like months and years is in general funny. Humans are weird that way.

Dec 4: I bought this!  Gotta say todays prompt made me scratch my head. On the other hand Ive bought lots of stuff. I mean probably much less than many other people but in a lifetime of almost 39 years theres been stuff.  But then again I think people are buying too much stuff. Too carelessly. And I kinda didnt want to encourage that by showing off my purchases.  So I went with something I bought a few months ago but also that wasnt just some mindless stuff.

Dec 3: Something festive I dont do that much festivities. Nor I do that much pearls. So I dont quite know what went to me when I saw these long black and bronzy plastic pearls at a local thrift store. Had to get them. Theres something fun about these pearls. Perhaps they work as photo props more than once If you have other ideas let me know. (Though no crafts I want to keep them intact.)

Dec 2: Lights  You may already know my pet peeve of photographing tips. The use natural light trope.  Here up north during winter the natural light is rare. So rare that Finns have developed an amusing obsession to light.  The past few days have been uncommonly sunny. People have been all ooh and aah with it.  Where theres no natural light you create your own. Nice setup of daylight lamps will do.  Do you prefer lots of light or are you a creature of darkness? . . . . . . . . . #merviemilia… Pet Peeves, Natural Light, Darkness, Lamps, The Past, Hair Cuts, Hair Color, Creatures, Lights

Dec 1: Out  About  Giving an attempt on this #fmspad challenge after a long while. And maybe this can work as my holiday calendar for you.  Ive been thinking about starting a separate lifestyle blog. That is separate from my main blog. But then I realised I can do a little blog like thing here on Insta at least for now. So thats also whats happening now.  This photo is from yesterday.

Feeling rusty?  You know that saying about something being like riding a bike? The idea is that riding a bike is so easy and it comes back so fast that you just jump on the saddle and get going.  Im sure though if you would jump back on the saddle of a bicycle after a really long while you would have at least a moment of confusion.  WTF am I doing? How is this ridiculous thing with two wheels supposed to stay up?!  Its okay to feel rusty. Its okay to have to readjust.

Doodling flowers.  Long time no see. Mainly Ive been blogging and stuff. The link to my site is in my profile. So check it out if you are interested in my thoughts and ideas.  I wanted to drop by and show off some doodles I made. Yes around 2 am at Sunday morning.  I was watching random videos on YouTube when I stumbled upon @shaydacampbell doodling these sort of flowers. And then I had to follow her lead.  Ill probably scan these and maybe post on my Patreon as high quality downloads… Illustration Art, Illustrations, Sunday Morning, Blogging, Web Design, Doodles, My Arts, Profile, Drop
