First of all, as promised, the WINNER of the Quirky Dutch Summer Give-away. I entered the names in the random generator and the winner is….. drumroll please…..
(I will send you an email to ask for your postal address Miryam.)
I’ve been a little absent these past weeks: “Hot time, Summer in the City” you know… I enjoyed all kinds of other activities and skipped last week’s ‘Workdesk Wednesday’, knowing I would not be able to visit the other deskers’ blogs. I didn’t spend much time in my atelier also. I won’t bore you with telling you all the places I went and things I did instead, but I will tell you that the I enjoyed this the most:
last week it was the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival and there was a ‘Tribute to Woodstock’ festival organised on a little square just around the corner where I live… during three days, all kinds of local bands played covers of the Woodstock songs and MAN, was it fun!!!
We walked up and down between our apartment and the musical area many times… not all the bands were as good, so when one was on stage that we didn’t like much we went home to get a drink or have some food. One could buy drinks and snacks at the festival but we found those were pretty expensive and since our home was only a few steps away, we rather went home to eat to come back an hour later to see the next band play.
I also enjoyed many people (mostly of my age and older… yup) were dressed up like old hippies. A lot of pink sunglasses, tie-dyed t-shirts and scarfs around (sometimes bold) heads… I look back on these three days with a big smile on my face!
Edit: Neet thought it would have been fun to take photos… I didn’t, but you can find a compilation/video of those days HERE The crowd grows towards the third day – the end of the video with more fun and colours.
(And yes, I wore my crocheted skirt and yes, I promised you photos of that and no, I haven’t got a photo taken yet – but I didn’t forget. You will get to see it one day or maybe you can spot me in one of the first takes on this video!)
After the weekend, I went back to my atelier but I cannot show you what I created, yet… I made a present for a ‘lovely person’ and you can see the envelope laying on my desk. My beloved took the envelope with him just now, to put it in the mail. The woman that will receive it might read my blog so I will wait for her to receive it before I show it on my blog. However, my desk shows a few tiny left-overs from ‘the-thing-I-made’ – but you cannot make much of it now.
But I won’t leave you without showing you something creative from my hand… here’s the latest art journal spread I created
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 31
