On top of my exhibition, this week I am preparing for something huge...I can't wait to tell you.
I am enjoying more time with my ink pens & more little inklings...doesn't this one look like our Jin.
I just love it and can totally picture it on a tote bag.
Today marks my 6th year of blogging. Wow.
I remember my very first post,
I was so nervous, tentative, unsure of who in the world would care about anything I wrote or showed, it took me hours to hit the publish button, ha ha.
I wasn't quite knowing what my blog was about or would become or even if I'd keep it up.
Now 6 years in and almost 1000 posts later, it feels like a cozy home and a labor of love,
a beautiful space for show and tell, a meeting place for new friends,
a gentle spot to lay open my heart and my tender soul...knowing I'll be met with kindness & support.
Well now 6 years down the road, I am planning on blogging for atleast another 6, ha ha!
I am Mandy Saile, the owner & artist behind "Bijou's Whimsy". I am an inspired maker of unique, quirky & whimsical pictures & handmade lovelies. I love a myriad of mediums but oh my how coloured pencils talk to my fingers & heart. I am a chronic & accute migraine sufferer. A mama to 6 long-earred babies. Animals make my heart tick. My work whirls & weaves stories about kindness & connection to animals & to our own tender hearts. Join me as I share my creations & inspirations from my cozy studio in Northern Canada. ***All images, artwork and writing on this blog are the proprietary copyrighted works of Mandy Saile and may not be reproduced in any form without my permission***
