woyww #280 (in slow motion…)

.

I’m rather late with my post today but everything is going in slow motion these days. I catched a cold yesterday and I feel all drowsy and sleepy – know the feeling? – and you wouldn’t believe the amount of paper towels I use during the day.  Blaaahhh…

However, I did not want to miss What’s On Your Desk Wednesday so I took a photo of my desk this morning, although there’s not much going on there right now. But come on in and see for yourself…

woyww #279 & Chronicles art journal

.

Another day… another “What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday and what a day (or better, week!) it is… On Monday, a team of construction workers arrived to start renovating the bathroom and toilet and I will have that bunch of men in da house untill Friday… They grind, drill, brought a big radio that’s tuned on a popular station (right now: Robbie Williams… ‘hey ho, here she goes… ‘ ) they sing and whistle, drink coffee and, I have to say, work hard making our bathroom looking nice and ‘new’ again. I hide in my atelier most of the time, but apparently they influenced me with the mess they make ’cause my workdesk has never looked this chaotic!

woyww #278 & September Chronicles

.

Goodmorning beautiful people!
I got up very early this morning, it was still dark and I had to wait ’till sunrise (and a little bit longer) before the light in the atelier was strong enough to take a proper picture of my desk – but at around 8.30 the things on my desk became visible enough to take a photo.
Come on in and view what is was on it – oh, and I have some art journal pages for you to see too!

woyww #276, a dove family and a quote

It is again Wednesday and again a beautiful Autumn morning (almost like Summer even, as it is going to be 25 degrees Celcius – (77 Fahrenheit.)

I will take advantage of it by going for a bike ride to the seashore and take a long walk over the dunes and along the beach. But before I step on my bike, I have some photos to show you. To begin with my workdesk and how it looks this morning.

(“why a picture of your desk” you may ask? That’s because of Julia from Stamping Ground and her ‘What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday” series. Click the link to find out all about woyww and join the fun!)

My atelier is at the front of the appartment – on the North-West side which means the light is ideal to work by – but there’s something interesting happening on the back of the appartment too these days (the sunny, South-East balcony-side) which I want to show you.

woyww #275 and more…

I just got back from the dentist, who pulled two teeth… there’s nothing much to do now than wait until the anesthesia wears to see how I will feel the rest of the day…  right now I don’t feel any pain so I better use this ‘free time’ to write a blogpost. Let’s start with showing my workdesk and how it looked like this morning – photographed for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

woyww #274 – Preparing for the Art Route

On this sunny day in Zeeland, I am inside my atelier preparing for Koudekerke Uit de Kunst. This week, Koudekerke (a village nearby) is bursting from cultural activities. The activities find their climax with a so called ‘Art Route’ which takes place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  I will be part of the Art Route on Saturday, September 6, to  show my work. Right now, I’m working hard to get everything ready for that. I bound a lot of new books over the past few weeks and these last days are filled with preparing (like putting prizes to my handbound books,)  tying up all the loose ends (like: finding that black cloth to lay over the table to show my work on… the cloth must be somewhere in a box after the move… but there’s still a lot of boxes unpacked and I don’t know in which one the cloth is – probably the last one I open?! Grrr….) and packing up my stuff.

Here’s how my work table looks today – photographed for Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
