Wanna know my secret?

Hope my mother-in-law isn't reading this :) :)
Oups. She was.

to paint or not to paint?

She did it again. Another great no frill prompt this week! This is my CHAOS at the moment :
and Margot is not very helpful.
She tries to be though.

liste du vendredi : list of tabs

This is how I feel today :
like an angry owl.
I am sick of studying.
After 7 years of medical school, you are officially an MD. You start to work. You hope you're done with finals. But heck no.
I've choosen to become a gastroenterologist. It is 6 more years.
After the first 3, you must pass that internal medicine board exam.
It'll be next monday, may the 2nd.
So, for this week's list, I made a list of tags :
And Margot is going to stay at her grandmother's for the entire weekend.
It'll be bright and sunny the whole time.
And i'll have to wait a whole 50 hours to see her again.
And she'll be ten months old on sunday.

an Ipad cover!

Look what I got in the mail last week!
Ikeda made me this sweet gift.
She's clever and crafty. Plus, she has a cuttie called N that is enjoying her crafty journey too!
Go check her blog : Ikeda's blog!
I will send something to her soon. I just don't know what yet. mmmh. And I won't tell because I know she's peeking here regularly:)

because life isn't.

Shoot or shout.

Indeed, I've made bunnies between naps yesterday. Carla Sonheim's tutorial is awesome!
First, catch the rabbit.
The hard way is shooting him or running through the fields early in the morning shouting "carrots! carrots!"

Me? I just go to the local butcher.

life is all about perspective

For one creativity point, I made pictures of my 'second home' yesterday :

It's my day job. And sometimes night job. Sometimes, I work a straight 28 hours shift.
Then, I come home (the other one), and I enjoy even more my family and my sketchbooks :)

24-hour shift

I'll spend the next 24 hours in the ICU.
no time to draw today :(
But tomorrow, between naps, I will make bunnies!
