Hi there lovelies, goodmorning! I write this post on Tuesday and schedule it because I will spend today with my mum. We will go into town, drink coffee, eat lunch, talk, laugh and do some shopping while my ‘King of the Castle’ holds the fort.
So here’s the desk how it looked on Tuesday afternoon and it’s rather messy (for me that is, I bet you all find it ‘neat’ as always 😉 ) I’m in the middle of making collages and spend all morning flipping through magazines and cutting out images. The collage should come together rather quickly now…
See that paper scrap laying on my desk to test paints and pens? Suddenly my eye fell on a paint spot and I saw a little bird.. it just needed an eye and a beak… see how cute it is?!
I will probably cut it out and glue it in my art journal.
I finished Sashiko-embroidering the jeans for my son last week, here’s a photo of the finished pants. I am happy with how it looks and I
think hope he will like it too. Next up is altering my own jeans jacket (I plan to use more color there!)
On to the drawings then, yes – I’m still drawing ‘something’ once a week. Here’s a drawing I made with the EDM challenge Draw a bit of organized chaos (messy desk, table with books etc.) I had my scissors laying on my desk and I thought it would be a quick and easy drawing… boy was I wrong!!! It was really difficult to get the size and perspective right. At one point I called it ‘done’ but it is far from good…
… so I journaled around it that this drawing should be a WARNING (waarschuwing) to not think something is easy to do, to take the TIME (tijd) and to LOOK (kijken) real closely.
On Saturday I taught a workshop ‘Zetti collage’ to a lovely little group of ladies… it was such a nice, cozy, intimate and creative day with beautiful results I just have to show you some pictures!
Here’s the ladies flipping through magazines and cutting images…
… and these were the results!

I wave goodbye with one last Zetti on a letter I wrote to my friend Jenny last week (the letter was for her so I blur the text.)
And that’s it for now sweeties, this blogpost is long enough as it is (sorry Julia!) Have a great, sunny, Autumn day. Spend it well. Go shopping (preferably with a loved one.)
