  • I’ve been to One Star Story’s myspace page and I LOVE their music…must buy their cd!!!

    LOVE the pics you took of them, especially the one with the star on the brick wall ~ priceless 🙂

    So anxious to see the video of your house ~ have fun with Vanessa 😀

    btw ~ SUPER CUTE paintings inspired by Peter Pan…I can tell I’m going to LOVE the teddy bear one!!!!

  • WOW** You just amaze me! I love how you make sure to take the time that ***U*** need for your soul. I always loved skating too…. As always the pics are way rad 😉

  • LOVE the new paintings! They would be great for a nursery or kids room! So very cute!

  • Can’t wait to see if the new pan inspired makes it to your etsy! With two little grandboys coming they are SOOO going to need artwork for the walls.

  • Scrapping is fun with Elsie’s line,

    I hope she picks me so the gift will be mine,

    Noel, Zoe, Lola and Riley,

    If I win I sure will be smiley!

  • ooh can’t wait until the video’s done….hurry up lol 😉

    All the photo’s look fab…can’t wait for more than a sneak peak at your paintings….from what I can see they are FAB as usual 🙂

  • I went roller skating not too long ago, I think my skates were too tight so I wasn’t doing very well. It just goes to show you how carefree you are when you’re a kid and how much fear you have as you get older lol. I didn’t want to embarass myself in front of my bf lol.

  • I feel like the holidays were slow to arrive but now suddenly everything is moving so fast! must get things done! :] happy painting and holiday-ing!

  • I’m really looking forward to the holidays, but it is a very busy time indeed!

    Love the pic of you skating! It’s been a long time since I’ve put my skates on and it’s gonna be a while before I do because I’m 21 weeks pregnant. But once the baby is born, I’ll give it a try again! Always loved skating.

    Can’t wait the see your video and your new paintings look awesome!

  • Hi Elsie,

    What a feast for the eyes. Your photos are magical and very inspiring. I can’t wait to see your Peter Pan art work. DREAMY! Merry Christmas from Australia.

  • Have you read the Peter-inspired books by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson? Peter and the Starcatchers, Peter and the Shadow Thieves, and the new one, Peter and the Secret Rundoon… they’re must reads if you’re a Peter Pan fan! That and of course Finding Neverland which is one of my top-ten fave movies ever!! Lovin your new art!

  • Her videos are cute. They remind me of my life a few years ago- promoting and touring with my friends’ bands [always the 1 girl amongst the boys], going to shows, and all that fun. My boyfriend is in a band now, but we have both totally grown out of that lifestyle. Fun stuff to watch though 😉 Can’t wait to see more of your loft!

  • That is a great roller skating shot of you.

    If you ever come to manitoba, we should hang out & scrapbook..hee hee

  • Wow…heimafilm is incredible! I love the music of Sigur Ros!

    I thought I would share a film with you that you may or may not have seen. It is sort of similar in content although it is not showcasing one’s music at all. There is absolutely no speaking in the film but it is a magical journey through the cultures of the earth and through nature. If you haven’t seen it and take the time to see it, I hope you enjoy it! I love it, it is SOOOOOO Beautiful.

  • Hi. I actually enjoyed reading your current blog post!. Good quality content. I might advise you to write articles much more often. By doing this, with such type of a helpful site I think that you could rank higher in the search engines 🙂 . I also subscribed for your Rss. Keep up this excellent job!
