Ever since I saw the beautiful spoon Arounna made for her daughter Piper I've been dying to try my hand at it. She's carved more since then and even made a few Instagram videos.
I already loved wood carving and spoon carving was every bit of fun that I imagined. Very meditative & relaxing.
This one is made of cedar wood and I finished it with a salve made of oil and wax.

I was leafing through my old journals yesterday wondering why and when I stopped doing it. I will start keeping my days again next week. This is my favorite brand of blank journals in case you were wondering :) I own several in different colors and formats. The weight of the paper is really good for watercolor & collage.
