Happy New Year… And Red Panda

Happy New Year, dear friends!

May it be filled with blessings, joy, and peace!

That is what I wish to you and to your loved ones from the bottom of my heart.


I decided to have no New Year’s resolutions this years. I have learned that I need day-by-day goals that are easily and quickly fulfilled rather than any huge, long term plans. That is the way I function, that is the way I like it.

So, following this pattern, I am glad to present to you the result of one of my projects that I had set for myself to finish during this Christmas time.

The Red Panda.

It’s for my nephew Gaby. I really hope he’ll like it. And I really hope you like it too.

And now I’m off to work on my next colorful crochet project. I love it already and I will surely show it to you once it’s finished.


Have a great beginning of the New Year!

See you soon!



Fight For The Light

It’s nearly winter.

If you take photographs (and especially if you take photographs inside your home) then you’re surely familiar with what winter time means to a photographer.

Short days and poor light.




“But what are we going to do?”


“And what else are we going to do?”



Well, that was my inner motivational trainer talking to the evil part of me that likes to solve all problems with bars of chocolate. They clash, those two, quite often.

Anyhow, as a food blogger, I am currently solving just that problem – how to achieve a better looking light in my pictures.

But you know what?

I have found out that sometimes it might be good to face an obstacle. Because facing an obstacle might lead you to learning new things. Like finding out what a histogram is. And finding out about its magical powers.

Because that strange looking and strange sounding histogram is in fact a dear friend.

Just let me show you…
