Hi there sweeties – it is Tuesday afternoon here and instead of visiting last week’s deskers (as planned) I am doing what I planned to do on Wednesday morning: write a ‘desk’ blogpost that I schedule to go online tomorrow morning. My beloved and I agreed to start Spring-cleaning on Wednesday and so I had to rearrange my schedule… sorry to all who left me a comment last week, I really wanted to pay you a visit but there aren’t too many hours left to do that now, you’ll see me stopping by another time, ok?!
I do hope you enjoyed your Easter days? Mine were filled with sunshine, crocheting, love, laughter and a thrilling bicycle race (more about that further in this post) Oh, and a little bit of creating on Monday as there were birthdays coming up and handmade postcards needed to be made.
So what’s on my desk right now?
I was cutting out that ‘doll on rollerskates’ to use in my art journal. The photo behind that is a news photo of the winner of the Amstel Gold Race (a bicycle race) – we watched the race last Sunday and especially the last part of the race was thrilling… as a friend called it: “edge of your seat stuff!” (watch this short video of the last 1.5 kilometers on Eurosport if you’re curious now) and of course that event needs to be memorized on my next Chronicles spread!
On the photo to the right you can see my Chronicles art journal laying stand by, the page partly seen is the one I made a while ago. Here it is in it’s full glory
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 15
And here are those birthday cards I spoke about… fun, bright and happy collage postcards
this one is for Karin, an old childhood friend
and the next one is for Guus, my son’s girlfriend (the sweetest, nicest, awesome-est girl he could choose – I must have done something right raising him!)
I’m signing off now… when you read this on Wednesday, I will probably be somewhere in the midst of cleaning the apartment. Can you picture me standing on stepladder with a scarf around my hair, red-faced and sweaty armpits? (NO, I won’t take a selfie!)
May you have a beautiful RELAXED Wednesday, see ya soon.
