Getting ready…

I’m getting ready for the top 2000… but before we take off this Saturday
I thought I’d show you some things I made.
(As you know, next week will have an everyday post that is filled with
top 2000 music-related layouts, no regular blogging.
I already received some marvelous artwork in my mailbox from all over
the world – I was flabbergasted! Be sure to check in every day during the
top 2000 week!)

Oh, and to make the top 2000 blog party more fun, I throw in a prize!
Yep, you heard me. I show you at the end of this post…

Keep on smilin’

Yeh, right…
do I finally have some free time, and then I catch a cold…


I choose to ignore it
and I still play with my
pens and art journals,
but that’s kinda hard to do
when there’s something
dripping from your nose
on to your art journal page…
ugh!

It’s the right time of the year
to catch a cold though…
I feel sooo related to Rudolph
and I sing along with the song…

‘Budolb the bed bose bendeew”

Reasons to smile #4

Today, I have a very good reason to smile… along with someone else…

Congratulations on your 70st birthday mom!!!!!!

Yep, you read it well. My mom is turning 70 years young today!
Go send her some love on her website!

(for non Dutchies: Click the button ‘Johanna’ in the top menu – find
‘Gastenboek’ (guestbook) in the menu – fill in the captcha numbers
to get in the guestbook and leave a message!)

Ofcourse I made her something.
Or better: two things, but I only show you the card.
She (and you) will have to wait some more for her present.

(Mam, als de post nog niet geweest is, wil je misschien nog even wachten
en niet meteen doorklikken?)

Reasons to smile #2
(Reflections on 2010)

I love to reflect on the past year!
Last week, I flipped through my weekly art journal and it made me realize
how many great things came my way last year! I had lots of reasons to smile,
so let me share some more of the goodness.

Reasons to smile #1
(Reflections on 2010)

Most bloggers use the last week of the year to reflect on the year that’s gone
by, but since the top 2000 will be up and runnin’ by then (see post on top!),
I thought I do it now. Not all at once,  but I will use the next blog posts to
reflect on something creative I did last year.
(And yes, there will be some new work to show every now and then!)

Like a lot of bloggers, I picked a ‘word of the year’ for 2010.
So let’s see what became of that…
