I’ve been away from my blog for over five weeks!
What did I say in my last blogpost? I would take a blogbreak to “…handle and get rid of the the loose ends of the past year…“ Yah, right. But I certainly did not plan my break to last this long… Ah well, you know how it is. You read a book, do some cleaning, take a walk, cook a diner and before you know it weeks have gone by… and let me tell you already; my blogging will certainly show more gaps this year as 2014 will be the year of change for me. For one: we will definitely move houses. I don’t know where we will end up, but I’m sure the moving process in the near future will keep me from blogging yet again.
Anyway, we’re not that far yet so today I’m here. And yes, I DID get “rid of some loose ends of 2013.” I even created new art journal pages and started working on a new project as well… not to forget that I also re-designed my website (it’s about finished, the old site will be replaced with the new later this week!) But let’s not reveal everything at once…
Today I show you the last weeks/pages in my “Chronicles” art journal for 2013. I’m not satisfied about all of these pages, but that is also the charm of my Chronicles weekly art journal: working in it teaches me to let go, get the sh*t out, turn the page and move on to the next week. It’s a bit like real life, really…
Chronicles 2013 – Week 50
Chronicles 2013 – Week 51
Chronicles 2013 – Week 52
Chronicles 2013 – Last page
There’s something funny going on with these last pages in my Chronicles journal. Ever since I started working in these “Chronicles” year books, I glued a picture of myself – taken on one of the last days of the year – on the last page, and every year I can’t help but dislike that photo… or better: dislike the wrinkles, the double chin and the bags under my eyes that become darker with each year that passes. However, the strange thing is that when I look back at the photo’s taken in former years, I do like the pics that I see there… the photo that I hated in 2012, seems nice to me now. Aawww… where will that leave me when I’m eighty? Will I think of myself as ‘a youngster’ when I see the above photo then? Probably! And what to think of my son? What will HE think of himself when he sees this photo 30 years from now?
OK. That was IT for today. I’m back. Wrinkles and all…
Hope you’re glad about it (I mean, about me being back blogging, not the wrinkles 😉 )
See ya later this week!
