Sunday Blissful Sunday

Sunday morning is here, and I can't help but dread tomorrow. I don't know if anyone out there can relate, but starting a new week always seems to pull all the strings inside me and I never fail to end up a bundle of nerves. I blame myself for listening to Manic Monday from such a young age. Somehow the song left a mark in my head and now I can never see Monday as any ordinary day. :)

I suppose having three children to take care of makes it a tad bit harder (and a tad is a mild way of putting it). It's not the same as waking up in the morning and rushing to get ready for work. I would say more like having a tornado swirl pass by you and when it does go away, you're left stunned for a very long time. But of course, after every tornado, there's always peace. The kind that you cherish and hang on to, hoping that it would never go away. Here's a little peek into some of my peaceful moments, before the mini tornado winds come home from school...

As you can see, other than my art, doll making has been a lifeline for me these days. There's something very therapeutic about sewing with your hands, just the way women used to do it back in the old days. The rhythmic movements seem to pull you into such a calm state of mind and I can't be more thankful that I found a whole new world through it.

Well, I'll get back to my precious Sunday now while the children are still fast asleep, because there will be no slowing down after they're all awake. So I hope you'll have a wonderful one too, and hopefully tomorrow when Monday comes, we'll be lucky enough to see only clears skies and no tornado in sight. ;)


Note: All my dolls are available at Whimsylandia


  1. Oh, my dear, I see!... :))))))))))) But you are full of love and "survive" the everyday tornadoes and what's more - put them out!:D
    I like your tiny dolls - they look perfect in any way! I can't believe you don't use a sewing machine. You are lucky to have found your way to relax and recharge...
    Mondays? I don't feel that way about them. I don't expect them with anxiety. On the contrary - no matter the approaching week, I welcome them with curiosity and with the feeling of something new (and probably good) to come. Try to change the view point!:D xxx

  2. Totally adorable little critters, which is probably true about your kids too :)

  3. Magical! A mouse on the coil recalled the tale of the Tailor of Gloucester by Beatrix Potter!)))

  4. These are beautiful! I especially like the cat :-)


Tell me your lovely daydreams, they always make me smile! ♥
