Sojourn



Well, one thing I just had to do while my mum was helping with Jacob was a bit of crafting! I love Jakey to bits of course, but I've been quite "art-deprived" for awhile now. I'd actually been thinking about this stop-motion experiment since the last weeks of my pregnancy, but then I was just too big to get on my hands and knees and futz around with little dolls and props. So as soon as I had a free afternoon, I rushed to give this a go!

Unlike my other stop-motion efforts, this one was an experiment in fitting images to music, rather than the other way around. Well, I realised soon enough that it wasn't that easy or straightforward, but I rushed to put something together anyway while I had the opportunity! Certainly it was a good breather to have that me time. This is a song that has served as a lullaby for Jake, so hopefully you'll enjoy it, if nothing else :)

Have a peaceful, blessed rest of the week!

The video is really sweet and the song is just lovely. Great use of Calico Critters and I can see how this peaceful melody would lull Jake to sleep. Take it easy with that one finger lady :) Yes I'm doing much better these days. Thanks for asking! Happy weekend!

I love this so much from the music, to your garden, the sweet little sylvanians. Thank you. I bet it was a beautiful release to make this after waiting for so long. Hugs, Erika

sweetest lullaby, ever. do you sing it to him or do you just let the song play? and i LOVE your attempt at the clip, i think it turned out super cute. i always loved the jerky movements of these, and the bear with the backpack is adorable :)

your stop action photography was impeccable and the little video along with the lovely lyrics and melody was very heartwarming.

Life is indeed a wonderful journey that we pass through with every minute, every second that we live.
And so very true that "We will never be able to return home" but "We will never leave home".
For home will always be within our hearts.

Thank you for such a lovely presentation. :)
