This will be the last ‘regular post’ of the year ’cause this blog will be getting ready for the TOP 2000 BLOG PARTY that will run in the last week of the year… The Top 2000 musical list for this year will be announced at the end of today and from that moment on, I (and all other participants) can start creating things inspired to the music and submit their art. Broadcasting (and the blogparty) start on Christmas day. It is THE most creative and musical blogparty of the year, it is a free event and you are invited!
This morning is the calm before the storm and I use these hours to write this post and show you some last things before I dive into creating to the music. First, here’s how my desk looks right now.
And see those Eucalyptus branches in the window sill? I put a vase with Christmas branches (white branches with little lights) and Eucalyptus in the living room and these were left overs that I did not want to throw away.
I kept on creating in my Chronicles art journal while I had a cold… it lead to this spread
The Chronicles of Marit 2018 – Week 49
I am a member of the Dutch, online Art Journal/Mixed Media Community Creatief Contact and when Jenny de Bode, the founder and ‘leader of the pack’ posted this little challenge, I decided to play along. “Draw a small rectangular or square in the size of a stamp and capture the sky… the colour and atmosphere…” I captured the sky/weather in week 50 using watercolour paint on watercolour (‘aquarel’) paper…
… and glued the piece of paper on the Chronicles spread.

I also created and send a small amount of Christmas cards to family and friends. Although I cannot send you ALL this card, my wishes are for you too…
MERRY EVERYTHING AND HAPPY ALWAYS!!!
Hope to see you at the Top 2000 party and if not, see you again in 2019.
Enjoy the holidays!
