Hi there lovelies, long time no see – how are you? It’s my first day off for the holidays (I have vacation untill january, yay!) and I join in at woyww for the last time this year. On Christmas day my annual Top 2000 blog party starts (it’s fun, it’s for free and YOU are invited, check the link) so my vacation will be filled with mad creativity but I am looking forward to it! However, before the hectic days start I want to show you some of my latest art journal spreads.
To begin with, ’cause after all it’s WOYWW-Wednesday, here’s a photo of my desk
That bra… teehee… yep, I came home from work wearing this yesterday, do you recognise that ladies? Well, I took it off and put it on my desk ’cause I need to get that repaired right away before it ends up at the bottom of my drawer to never come out again.
The cardboard pieces will become the cover for my Top 2000 journal that I plan on making/binding today, the first day of my vacation will be well spend! I wouldn’t be able to do much other than play in my atelier anyway, because the Netherlands again is in a heavy lock down due to Covid (and the increasing infections with the new Omicron variant) and there is no possibility to do anything other than stay at home or maybe go for a little walk. All stores, restaurants, pubs, museums, cinemas and theaters are closed until at least January 13 and people can’t come together (well, the rule is to not invite more than four people besides your own household for X-mas and only 2 on all other days.) I’m lucky to have my atelier and the online Top 2000 event, I won’t be bored at all!
The next spreads in my Chronicles art journal do show the worries about increasing Covid infections – I need to finish the last spreads in this journal and a fresh bound blank journal is already waiting to get filled next year. I hope those spreads in the new journal will all be happy and colourful ’cause that would mean my days were, and I hope to find time every now and then to show it on my blog. For now, here’s week 45 – 48 for 2021.
The chronicles of Marit – week 45
The chronicles of Marit – week 46
The chronicles of Marit – week 47
The chronicles of Marit – week 48
I do wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS and all good for the next year, let’s hope things will get ‘back to normal’ in 2022 (although I doubt that…) Whatever may come: stay positive and keep on loving each other! Je t’embrasse!
