snow alphabet

Two years ago I started taking pictures for a snow alphabet set, but never did anything with them. Then on Christmas day there was some snow on the ground and I decided to take pictures to finish my alphabet. This
 was my first attempt:
The following day Mother Nature realized I needed a snow storm to improve my snow alphabet set and she sent me a perfect amount of snow! Here is my improved snow alphabet set:

One Dieter's Diary as told to Laila Kujala by Nöf Nöf

I had my knee surgery five weeks ago. The first two weeks I was pretty much sitting on the couch with my leg elevated and iced. There was not much I could do. I decided to work on a story I started a long time ago called One Dieter’s Diary as Told to Laila Kujala by Nöf Nöf. During the first two weeks I finished the story and since then I have been working on the illustrations. I have been always interested in health and like most of us I have been struggling with some extra pounds. As I was writing the story I was amazed of how many different diets I have tried over the years – not all for weight loss. I found that pretty amusing. This book is not meant to be “how to lose weight” book and has no good advice what so ever. I would but it more in the category of humor.
After another week on the couch I had a whole pile of black and white line drawings ready. The past two weeks I have been coloring them in Photoshop. The book is almost ready with about 50 illustrations! Yes, my body has been immobile but my mind has been very, very busy. I hope that my “baby” will not be one that only mother can love.
