Weekend by the beach

Yesterday the weather was so beautiful here,
Still a little bit cold but you could feel that spring is coming.
I went by the Lake Ontario with my husband Suma
and I took this photo from a happy seagull there.
Another week is coming...I wish you a happy Monday!

Allgie the sweet alligator

Allgie is the sweetest alligator in JooJoo land.
He especially cares a lot about his health.
He tries to eat healthy and he brushes his teeth with
an electric toothbrush three times a day.

Allgie has a very good friend called pinkie and
she is a tiny bird. She cleans Allgie’s teeth when something is
stuck between his teeth and in return Allgie tells her
a lot of nice stories and fairytales and sings for her
until she falls asleep at night.

Thank you for your interst in Allgie's story! :)

My 7 Sîn

Here is my 7 Sîn! It doesn't look the best, especially with my
grass(Sabzeh) that bald! But I still love it!

Haft Sîn (Persian: هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major tradition
of Nowruz, the traditional Iranian new year.
The haft sin table includes seven items specifically starting
with the letter S or Sîn (س in the
Persian alphabet).
The items symbolically correspond to seven creations and
holy immortals protecting them.

(This text is part of an article in Wikipedia, to read the whole article click here)

I wish you a lovely spring!
Thank you for visiting :)

Bunny and chicks of JooJoo land!

My new polymer clay cuties for Spring and Easter!
It was so fun making them and taking their photos :)

Spring is now here in JooJoo land!

Everywhere is green and so fresh...Sweet scent of apple
is in the air. JikJik and JookJook are newly born
chicks and are having a good time out of their shells!

They can now see the whole new world and everything
is so exciting for them. Yesterday they met a very
pretty creature and they both fell in love with her.
She is a bunny called BunBun and she is crazy for
carrots! JikJik and JookJook think that she has a very
strange taste when it comes to food...
but it doesn't matter. They are still good friends :)

By the way JikJik and JookJook are the same age,
but JookJook is a little bit bigger...
maybe because she eats more! ;) You can find these here in my shop!

IF: Legendary

I love the topic of this week! Because my name means
legend in Persian!

Well, this is a vector illustration which I did around 3 years ago;
I was inspired by old Persian legends.
What she is wearing is a mixture of traditional Persian
and modern clothing, I just wanted to make it look old
and at the same time modern.

My sister and I have a portfolio website Called Rissmoon
and I had designed the website and all the graphics myself.

Every page has a vector art which has a hidden animation in it.
You should go over different parts of the page with your
curser to activate the animations.

This illustartion is a part of Rissmoon's website and has
an animation too, you can see the screenshot of it here,
but it’s much more fun to go there and try it yourself!

The print of this illustration is also available in my

Baldie the sulky eagle

Baldie is a sulky eagle. He doesn’t have any friends…
Baldie doesn’t like to spend so much time on the ground;
he has made his nest on a very tall tree.
The tree is so tall that it reaches the clouds and other
small birds can’t fly that high, and because of that
Baldie likes his nest so much, he can sleep very comfortably
there without being seen.

Baldie hates to be seen when he is sleeping,
because his beak stays open and he thinks that
he looks weird like that.

Thank you very much for understanding Baldie!

Maneki neko

Not only the cutest most darling cats,
but they bring good luck to the owner :)

These days I've become very interested in Japanese culture.
They have a special delicacy in whatever they do.
I have just fallen in love with their sweets and cookies!
They are called Wagashi.
You can see some wonderful ones here.

These are available in my Etsy shop.
