As promised… here I am!!!
And yes, I got a lot done yesterday.
Can’t show you all (some things are for a customer, and some pages
aren’t finished yet) but I do have some list-pages and a big collage to show.
First I want to show you the lovely gift Rosie send me!
I saw these fingerless gloves (Rosie calls them ‘wristies’) on her blog
early March, and I said to her that I should make myself a pair to wear at
the computer – ’cause really – I’m such a ‘koukleum’ (which is Dutch and it
can be translated as ‘chilly person’ – it has the words ‘cold’ and ‘shiver’ in one.)
Awesome Rosie didn’t tell me a thing, but made a pair for me and put it in
a big envelope together with a beautiful handmade card!
Can you imagine how happily surprised I was when the package arrived?
She wrote “I felt so sad for you when you said how you’re always cold and
I still had some “waistcoat” left, so I made them up!” How sweet is that?
They now lay next to the computer so I can look at them and use them
every time I get cold! Thank you so much Rosie – I’m over the moon happy!
I made a few ‘list pages’ last week.
Some took a lot of work, and some were done in no time.
I like how my ’28 lists’ book is growing with whimsical pages of all sorts…
List #12 – Weekly rituals
(I cut the image from a magazine once, because I found it hilarious…
this was the perfect page for it!)
List #14 – Thinks I love about ———————–
(You had to fill it in yourself, and I thought it would be nice
to add a zentangling page to my list album!)
List #16 – Places to see in your hometown
(Middelburg is not the city I live in, but since my heart is still in Zeeland
I found it more fun to take that town for this prompt.)
I have more list-pages, but I save a few for next week.
I don’t want to overfeed you with lists…
The next collage is made in my ‘big’ Art Journal (9,8 x 13,8 inch)
I started this page on Thursday, and finished it yesterday (that’s why my
‘Friday post’ was delayed, I wanted to work on this before the light would fade –
we’re still in ‘Wintertime’ overhere you see…)
Today, I did some laundry and cut my beloved’s hair (yep, I do that!)
The sun is shining brightly and it feels like Spring. The tree in the front yard
turned green overnight! Yesterday you could only see little leave-buds,
but they all woke up this morning and and raised their heads from under the
blankets. When I opened the curtains, they waved cheerfully at me.
It was a very nice ‘welcome’ to start the weekend!
I have hope that in a few weeks, I will be able to sit in the evening sun after
diner, having coffee and read the book that’s been waiting patiently to be read…
I might shiver a bit in the evening sun, but I have a blanket ánd the ‘wristies’….
I’m looking forward to it already!
I hope you too think about all the small but wonderful things you have in your
lives right now, unlike other people that have to deal with disasters (Japan)
and war (Libia). Look up at the trees, be grateful and enjoy your weekend!
