I added these yesterday but somehow during my blog-melt-down the post was deleated. So here they are again, earrings and a ring I made over the weekend. Hopefully I'll have more up soon!

Some of you may wonder why I call my blog SandyPlusLeo. Leo was my grandfather on my mother's side. He passed away when I was five and I spent a lot of time with my grandparents the first years of my life. He's a person who has inspired me in many ways in my life. Sandy plus Leo started a few years ago when I started writing and illustrating a children's book based on that time of my life. It's at the top of my list to finish that book and hopefully it will be soon.

Found these pretty doors while walking around town this weekend with Anna. I'd love to have a pretty door coming home, unfortunately my building was built in the 40's and comes with a glass wooden door, no soul or history behind that.

This is what you get for free everyday living in Stockholm.
I absolutely adore my hometown, it's my heart, it's where I was born and where I get my inspiration. I ♥ STOCKHOLM

I ♥ Wednesday

Today I got home and had a surprise visit from my folks with a gift beyond cool. I adore my parents and it looks like they think I'm pretty cool too. No more sitting curled up in my sofa drawing. Check out my new drawing table from Mr Kamprad himself.

Monday Portrait

Once I start drawing I really can't stop. Got some new Tombow and Zig brush pens yesterday and didn't go to bed til 1 AM. Pens are bad for me, they're like cigarettes, highly addictive. I was so tired at work today but all I thought about getting home was to get right back to the drawing-table. I think this will be a series of portraits. We will see, stay tuned...

Here's an update of my painting this weekend. Already regret colouring it, well atleast the colours I've chosen. Oh well, it's been fun and I'm all excited for the next project.

10 photos I wish I took today

Sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

If you're checking in today you might have noticed that I've done some changes over the blog. This is very typical me, I get bored easily. I've painted the walls of my apartment more times than I've had birthdays (and only been here five years now so you do the math). I'll hopefully have a new post later today with the illustration I'm working on. Until then, ciao!

Sunny Saturday

Lenny and I have done very little this Saturday, some chillin in the sun on the balcony and a lot of drawing actually. I've been going on all day and probably will all day tomorrow too but I'll post a pic as soon as I can!

Happy Sunday ya'll!
