Last week was my last ‘lazy week’ which I spend (as you know) reading
and creating. Again, my days will be filled with writing articles for
Creatief met Foto’s. The next issue of the magazine will be in the stores
in the first week of May, and I have to fill it before that… that means
I have to write approximately 18 articles in the next three weeks – it is
clear that art journaling will be put on a back burner during that time.
But it certainly won’t come to a complete art journal stop…
you know me 😉 I can’t do without art journaling!
Although the quantity of pages will be less in the next weeks,
I have a lot to show you today! All made last week and weekend.
Here we go…
30 Days of Lists is nearing it’s end… I skipped two prompts,
and have 6 more to go (tomorrow’s prompt included)
Here are some lists I made last week
List 20 – Celebrity Crushes
Thank goodness the List-blog said “Think of ‘crush’ as liberally
as you like” ’cause the age of having ‘crushes’ is long gone 😀
Looking at my wrinkles and eyelids I find it hard to believe, but Yep –
I was a teenager once. And ooohhh, did I had crushes!
You want to know those names too I guess *teehee*
Well, I’m in a good mood – lucky you!
My teenage crushes
- Rutger Hauer
- Tony Baretta (the actor Robert Blake in this role)
- The Bay City Rollers (ALL of them!)
- John Travolta
those are the ones that come to mind right away.
Thinking of the ones NOW, quite a few names came to mind for one reason
or another… some I admire, some I find inspiring and some (guys) are
just too gorgeous to not name.
It turned out that I didn’t have enough room to glue all the pics on one page.
I had to tape an extra piece to it to show them all!
- Benoite Groult (1920) – a French author who I admire.
Her books gave me a lot of insight, confidence and strength!
- Aragorn – Viggo Mortensen in “Lord of the Rings” – but to be honest:
I was in love with (the character) Aragorn the first time I read the book,
long before the movie was made or Viggo was known.
He does meet the ideal image though!
- Virginia Woolf (1882 – 1941) – English author, essayist, publisher,
and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist
literary figures of the twentieth century.
Inspirational woman with a wonderful writing style!
- Rutger Hauer (1944) – Yes, he’s on my list. Still.
Rutger gets even better and more good looking now that he grows older!
- Marilyn French (1929 – 2009) – American feminist and author.
The first book I read from her was ‘the Women’s room’ – I was 21 and
I’ll never forget how good it felt to read a story that handled the same
themes, ideas and feelings that I was struggling with.
- Jacques Brel (1929-1978) – French singer/songwriter (Chansonier) –
His songs are like poetry, his voice gives me the shivers.
I’m a fan since my parents played one of his albums. I was five or six (??)
- Helen Mirren (1945) – English actor – she played in the theater,
made tv series and movies. (she won a lot of awards) I admire her
for the way she acts ánd her ideas.
- Leonard Cohen (1934) – Do I have to say more?
My fave poet-singer-idol!
- Anais Nin (1903 – 1977) – was a French-Cuban author, famous for her
published journals, which span more than 60 years, beginning when she
was 11 years old and ending shortly before her death.
I read a great deal of her journals and admire her writing and her spirit!
- (THE YOUNG!) Mickey Rourke (1952) – Oh man, was he good
looking back then! I did have a crush on him, but have you seen him
Pfew, quite a list isn’t it?
On to some ‘easier’ lists now
List 22 – Today I saw
List 24 – I make lists for…
I’m not a list maker, and at first I thought I couldn’t make a page listing
my lists… but when I thought about it, I came up with a few.
Turns out I do make lists after all!
List 26 – Books I want to read
This prompt came the day after I wrote the former blogpost.
What a coincidence, and did I had fun making this list!
Some of the titles are already in my possession waiting to be read.
I read a review about the biography Keith Richard wrote and I got
real curious so that’s on my list too.
After reading my former blogpost, some of you gave me tips about
books to read and I included some titles to my list. Looks like I will
spend a lot of Summer evenings in the garden with a book this year!
To end this blogpost… (it is long enough as it is!)

that I highly appreciate all your visits and comments!!!
