What I have been up in March

It looks like this year I'm not being very "bloggy".
I admit that I am depressed about not having a job. I have sent so many CVs lately but nobody called me. Italy has entered a very big crisis and thousands of people are losing their jobs. The only ones working are those from non-European Community Countries... Moreover, due to Italian laws, if you are more than 35 years old you have a hard time finding a new job but you are also too young for retirement!
In a few months I won't receive my unemployment check anymore. What if I cannot find a job before July? How will I pay my bills? I cannot even sell my house, because the real estate business is almost dead. 
Anyway, as we say in Italy: "Hope is the last one to die". So, I'll keep calm and send more CVs.
I am also making some new items for my ETSY SHOP and for some custom orders. I'll show you in a couple of days.

I am a little behind with art challenges, but I have been very busy drawing and giving a try at painting.
This is some of the Art I have made in March. Luckily I have been longsighted and bought provisions of paper and colors last year!!! :)

Doodle Moleskine.

Owls cards that you can find in my Etsy Shop KAIZENDOODLES.

 Whimsical Doodle Gardens (on Etsy in a couple of days). Size is A4.

Paintings on wood. 50x50 cm. The first one is a mixed media work: collage, acrylics, charcoal, stamping. The second one is alcohol inks and acrylics.

Have a great week everyone!!


  1. Hope you find what you need very soon! Love your creative projects:-)xxx

  2. Your art is amazing girl! Keep on creating! I know things will change for you and your hubby soon! Keep being positive and keep being you! Big Hugs ;o)

  3. As always, you do amazing work. With your positive attitude you will find something soon. You are such an awesome talented person. Keep up the good work. Sending positive energy to you.

  4. Beautiful art! Stay positive and results will appear. Happy PPF!

    Smiles, Saskia :)

  6. It is seriously difficult to be "bloggy" when you're stressed and depressed. I applaud you for keeping at it, both with your CVs and with your art! Your gardens are wonderful, and I dig your mixed media work!

  7. Beautiful artwork, your owls are so sweet, most of them look so vulnerable. So sorry about all your trouble and Italy's fiscal woes. I hope you find some kind of work soon! Wishing you well!

    Hugs Giggles

  8. Your art work is gorgeous and I think by being persistent helps although it can be frustrating at times. My uncle's wife and their kids i Italy are having the same difficulties as you. My mom asked my husband if there was any way he could help her nephew get a job here in Canada but I don't think it's that easy, he will have to check into it. I hope things get better soon over there , very heart breaking to hear our home country is in such a peril. Will keep you in my prays for better days ahead.

    Take care,

    p.s. Have you tried selling your work on EBAY?

  9. These are fun pieces for such a sad time! It's good that you have plenty of art materials to last a bit.

  10. I pray that you find the job you need - I always love your drawings - I think the owl cards are just wonderful.

  11. I hope the perfect job just lands in your lap!! I absolutely love your owls - they are adorable! Happy PPF!

  12. your work is beautiful, so diverse your talents are, I also hope that perfect job comes quickly, the work situation here in Canada is the same,
