Good morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all! It’s already the second day of the year and I really needed the first day to recuperate from last week’s Top 2000 blogparty. It was a hell of a week but seeing so many wonderful submissions come in and having the blog (and my mailbox!) pulsating with enthusiasm got me through… I’ve never seen that much ‘action’ in my Top 2000 blogparty-week and I enjoyed every minute of it; a big THANK YOU goes to all the participants, you made this week into an unforgettable party!

The first day of 2016 found me satisfied but tired, winding down and not doing much. I’ve neglected my beloved a bit during the last week so I gave him some well-deserved attention: we went for a long walk along the seashore, we talked, we reflected last year, we hugged, we bought a sandwich (“broodje kroket”) and had a good time. When we got home I fell asleep on the couch at 7 pm only to wake up at eleven to move from couch to bed… MAN, did I need sleep!
I’m fully awake and energized now and plan to finish off some things in the atelier this weekend… for example create the last pages in the 2015 Chronicles art journal, work on DLP pages with the prompts from November/December, tidy up some more loose ends and reflect on my word for this year (and write/create a page with it.)
To send you into the New Year, dear blogfriends, I have a fun video for you. It’s a “Best Wishes” video from a group of artists with whom I collaborated in December…
You may have spotted my ‘face’ in this video already… here’s the page in full glory
