Happy, happy, HAPPY boggyversary to Julia and all my fellow-‘deskers’ over at WOYWW. Can you believe it’s been 11th years since Julia started her weekly Wednesday-desk posts and it’s grown into a nice community with room for everyone… I started to join in 2013 so for me it’s 7 years of showing my desk to you…
in stead of swapping ATCs with my fellow deskers – a thing we usually do to celebrate – Julia came up with a new, ‘coronaproof’ plan for this year’s anniversary so we would not overload the Post Offices with extra work: “drag out a UFO (any craft, any age) or a kit, or ‘thing’ that you’ve promised to do ‘at some point’ and actually do it. Take the challenge and show us on WOYWW 572.”
I took the challenge and dragged out an old harmonica-book (see last week’s post) that I had laying around for almost two years, and never finished… I worked on it for several days and it’s ‘going some-where’ but I don’t think it’s finished yet.

I think it’s too pale still… it needs some more contrast. Maybe some Indian ink? (Splatter? Text?)
Today, a new challenge was posted in the Dutch Dares challenge group. It’s a sketch…
… and as a guest-designer, I created this layout.
Yes, that’s me on my scooter (is that the right translation? In Dutch it’s called “a step”.) Journaling says that my dad always laughs when he sees this photo: “You loved that scooter, to SIT on. You never actually rode it!”
It’s almost afternoon already… I’m late posting but I had a tough night (insomnia can be a burden) so I took some extra time in bed this morning.
Thanks for dropping by my blog, I hope to make a start with my ‘desk round’ today and finish visiting everyone that’s on the list later this week, so see ya!
