Last week I was busy “putting up the tents” for the creative summer camp. 🙂
The doors will open in about three weeks and everything has to be in tip-top
order by then!
No, ofcourse not!
You all know
by now that
is an online event!!!
But this is a
nice way to start
my Friday blogpost,
The ‘online camping site’ is large enough to accommodate large groups,
so if you want to make this a creative Summer: click the link and join the fun!
Are you confused by now?
With ‘building op the Summer Camp’ I mean that I am busy producing
the challenge-documents and placing them into the community.
I also am not done with creating examples (where necessary) etc.
So I AM very creative these days, but nothing I can show you…
besides this little thingie…
2.5 x 3.5 inch
I have a little box in one of the drawers of my ‘creative closet’ – and I throw
all kinds of little things and left overs there… The background was a piece of
paper on which I wiped of my paint brush last week. (When I create, I like to
use the ‘left overs’ for ATC’s or backgrounds. That way, you don’t spill a thing!)
So I had that background, and I looked in my little ‘left overs’ box to see
what more was in there… Haaa… see that small piece of twill tape (fabric)???
Maybe you recognize it from this page!
I also found small pieces of transparent, plastic ribbon (with the black flowers)
The silver, elastic band with beads was wrapped around a present, but I
honestly do not know who gave it to me. (Mom? Lena?)
I hand stitched the twill tape and elastic band onto the ATC, and that’s it.
All in all it took me maybe 10 minutes to make… (which I spend the most
by looking in my closet drawer to see what I could use!)
When I visited Phinner’s blog last week, she had a link to a video in her post
and she said that she laughed sooo hard when she saw this video…
I became curious (ofcourse!) and clicked the link…. OHMY!
This was not ‘giggle worthy’ – I really was laughing hard!!!!
(Imagine me, all by myself at the computer – laughing out loud!
Not just ‘LOL’ – which we type easily – no… LAUGHING OUT LOUD.
So at night, sitting on the couch to watch ‘Criminal Minds’ with my son,
I thought about it again and I told him that I laughed so hard.
I didn’t tell him what it was about (that would spoil the fun) but I said
I would show him the video as soon as the commercial breaks would be on.
After a while (watching TV) he suddenly said:
“Mom, was it about XXXXXXXX ?”
…???… How could he know???!!!!
It turned out that this YouTube video is so popular, that it was showed
in a Dutch talk show (“DWDD”) last week! Aaarghhhh… surprise ruined!
We watched it again anyway. And yes, we both laughed!
So now YOU are curious, aren’t you?
Maybe you saw it, maybe not, but here’s the link.
I wish you all a nice weekend!!!
(Oh, and for those who noticed the new ‘life workshop’ logo in the side menu
– more info really is coming soon! Look for the newsletter or keep an eye on
the website and my blog!)
