Thank you, thank you, a big THANKS to all who responded to my e-mail
last month, and sent me a birthday card for my friend Lena!!!
On Sunday, my beloved and I drove to Zeeland to visit her on
her 50th birthday. I carried with me my own presents, ánd a bag
with all your envelopes!!!
I’d printed the e-mail that I sent to you, and let her read it first –
so she would now what it was that I gave her.
Then I handed over the bag stuffed with your mail!
MAN – you should’ve been there – the look on her face was priceless!!!!
Here’s a photo
See the big stack of envelopes on her lap?
And there’s even more in the bag…. WOWZAH
To see more pics of all the cards and presents,
go to Lena’s blog Six lilies studio
On to some art journal pages I made…
These are the last two pages in my ‘list’ journal.
I finished all the prompts now, and my book is full.
I’m real happy with this colourful and versatile little art journal!
(If you want to see all the pages in a row, the complete book is in my gallery.
You find it under ‘finished Art Journals’ – see buttons at the top of this blog.)
List #29 – Favourite food
List #30 – Today’s To-Do list
I stamped the desperate lady twice, so that it looks like she’s shaking.
I love the effect!!! This ‘to do’ list is from a week ago (April 12th) and I
really had a busy day back then! I’m glad things calmed down now!
It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means…
Yep, last week’s art journal page.
Here it is (click on the picture to enlarge for a better view)
The Chronicles of Marit 2011 – Week 15
Anne g-i send me a bunch of awesome, antique postcards (thanks Anne!!!)
and this one was soooo appropriate to go with the date that I finished
writing the articles for ‘Creatief met Foto’s #47’.
(This issue will hit the stores in May)
How do I fill up my days now that I made the deadline with the writing?
- For starters: it’s 25 degrees Celcius (77 Fahrenheit) so I spend a lot
of time in the backyard – sitting in the sun and spraying ink on art
journal pages. This warm weather is awesome for letting the pages
(ánd the laundry) dry in the sun! . (NOTE TO SELF: remember to check
the wind before using spray ink while the laundry hangs outside 😉 )
- Work on more Creative Summer Camp prompts.
(registration opens this week, I’ll keep you informed)
- Work on the website I design/create for a customer.
- and last but not least: I really, REALLY have to do some housekeeping!
As you see, I won’t get bored!
I hope you have a lovely, creative and sunny week my friends!
