After struggling all afternoon with website pages and HTML-codes,
I called in the cavalry yesterday and ofcourse my beloved fixed it for me.
Ha, now you know why he’s a member of the FEATURING team!
What should I do without him?
Yep, you heard me… the FEATURING team is introduced
so hop on over to the website and take a look at the ‘About’ page!
Oh, and while you’re there – we are open to receive all kinds of
artwork for our theme gallery – so check out the submission-page
as well! (You can come back here later to read the rest of my
Hi folks! Looking for a blogpost today?
I planned to write one, I sure did – but I first want to update the
FEATURING page and introduce the team. I thought I could do
it all today, but I’m at war with the HTML-codes and it seems they
don’t give up as easy as I want them to…
however, I’m on the winning side – so come back tomorrow and
I have both a blogpost ánd will present the FEATURING team!
(Oh, and show an art journal page ofcourse!)
Good morning dear ones…
Oh, huh, it’s afternoon already…
OK then: good afternoon dear ones!
You probably forgive me my late blogpost
when you see the photo and read my haiku.
(WARNING: ‘Dirty picture’!)
Most of you – especially the ‘diehard scrapbookers’ – know Ali Edwards
and her annual ‘One Little Word’ project. Instead of making a resolution
list at the end of the year, the idea is to choose a word that will guide you
and motivate you throughout the year. It sounds a bit silly maybe, that
one little word can help you all through the year, but I learned it sure does!
The first year I started with this OLW tradition (2010) I choose the word
SMILE, because my life was in a dip and I was rapidly heading towards
becoming a grumpy lady. The word stayed with me all year and made me
focus on the good things in life. Even my artwork became brighter and more
For 2011 my word was AWARENESS

This Friday, my haiku is dedicated to ‘Spadoman’ Joe
This one’s for you Joe – may friendship and healing surround you!

I just heard that my cyber-friend Spadoman is in need.
Will you join me and Rebecca in this circle of hope?
He is our friend. We are in his circle.
Sometimes things don’t go quite the way you thought they would, but by
giving it a twist and turning it around you can make them into something
even better then you planned in the first place…
A disappointing number of three (yes, 3!) people registered for the
‘workshop by the sea’.
As the date approached – and no new registrations were added – I had to
make a decision: cancel the workshop weekend or – despite the small group -
go for it and transform the weekend into something even more creative…
I choose the latter.
I informed the women about it and one lady withdrew, but the other two
got all enthusiastic when they heard it would be a more intimate weekend.
After all, with such a small ‘group’ they would have the opportunity to learn
more complicated techniques.
The workshop weekend finally came.
I met Elvy and Margot – two friends that were my ‘students’ last weekend
- and we had a blast!
