Only one night of sleep and online Creative Summer Camp opens!
The past few days I’ve been busy uploading all the documents
into the community. This afternoon, I already received emails
from participants… they can hardly wait to start
I feel a bit like a scout leader (what’s that called in English?)
with a whole bunch of laughing and screaming kids waiting
at the gate to come in. Patience, kids, patience…
I’ll open the doors tomorrow!
On to my own creativity now…
Thanks so much sweeties, for your encouraging words, sympathy and concern
on my last post. I have to clarify something though: the ‘crossroads’ that I was
talking about has to do with my artwork and there’s nothing ‘heavy’ going on in
my personal life or something. Some of you may have been wondering, so I
want to set that straight.
I haven’t decide on the direction that I will take yet.
Kim’s ‘Queen of Arts‘ comment really spoke to me:
“Sometimes I wonder if I could just stay right where I am, plant my feet like
the roots of a tree and stay there, swaying with the winds of change but not
taking the journey…”
Oh how I wish I were a tree…
Right now, I can’t really take any decision because I’m too busy writing articles
for Creatief met Foto’s and getting everything ready for Summer camp (doors
open next Wednesday! If you registered: you can expect an e-mail with your
log-in info on June 1st. Registration will stay open ’till August 15th)
Having my hands full right now means that I will have to put the ‘deep thinking
and exploring of my soul” on ice for a while and come back to it later, when I
have more time.
Having said that, it will be no surprise to you that I didn’t create last week.
I won’t leave you empty-handed though; I hope to satisfy you with photos
and a haiku today!
Did you choose a word for this year?
Do you think of it still?
The word I choose at the beginning of this year was
The Merriam-Webster Definition: an awareness of one’s own personality
Definition of AWARE: 1. (archaic) watchful, wary 2. having or showing
realization, perception, or knowledge
Synonyms/related words: consciousness, lucidity, realization
In my former blogpost, I wrote that I had more things to tell ánd show you…
and today is the day. So grab a cup of tea and enjoy the ‘picture overload’.

Goodafternoon … WEDNESDAY!
I know, I know.. you probably were wondering where the Tuesday post went…
Sorry, no time yesterday. I had a lot on my mind. Nice things though (see post
on top of my blog and my website)
But here I am, to show you the latest art journal pages
(yep, I also was creative in between… I had sort of an energy rush, YAY!)

November 4 to 7, 2011 (National/Dutch)
November 11 to 14, 2011 (International/English)
Many of you have already
asked me: “when can we
expect a live workshop?”
Well, now, your wishes
will be granted to your
Not just ‘one workshop in a
small room’, not just a
‘one technique tutorial’,
no, an all-inclusive and
long weekend filled with
workshops and creativity!
This weekend will take place
on the inspiring peninsula
of Walcheren (Province of
Zeeland) in the Netherlands.
The workshop location is within walking distance of the beach.
Sand and waves, wind and water are never far away, so these elements will certainly be reflected in the workshops.
More information can be found here on the website.
Last week I was busy “putting up the tents” for the creative summer camp.
The doors will open in about three weeks and everything has to be in tip-top
order by then!
No, ofcourse not!
You all know
by now that
is an online event!!!
But this is a
nice way to start
my Friday blogpost,
The ‘online camping site’ is large enough to accommodate large groups,
so if you want to make this a creative Summer: click the link and join the fun!
