“Tuesday morning, and I’m about to write the first post on my blog… pffff…”

With this sentence, I started this big adventure – my own blog – one year ago…
I was excited and enthusiastic but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine 
how much fun, inspiration and friends this blog would bring me…


YOU, my visitors and friends, YOU made this bloggin’ thing into one big feast
right from the beginning! 
To thank you for that and to show you how much I care about all your support,
your sweet comments, your cheering and the inspiration you bring, I invite
you all to celebrate with me today… so


The celebration would not be complete without gifts of course.
I will be giving away 

THREE parcels filled with scrap goodies

and to finish it off, I will also give away


Take a look at
what there is
to win….
I stuffed a lot 
of scrapgoodies 
into each parcel.
Some new things
and some vintage
goodies so no
matter what kind
of artist you are,
you will like it!


About my new community website and online workshops: I will tell you
much more about it next week but I can announce the start of at least 


at the end of January/beginning of February 2010.

This workshop will last about 6 weeks, containing art journaling techniques,
writing tips to journal from the soul (you think you can’t write? I assure you
I will give challenges, tips and trucs to improve your skills and YOU can write
your story from the soul to!) There will be playing with paint, ink, gesso…
there will be “improving your own handwriting” lessons… photo’s and
hey, I might even throw in a video and overcome my fear of hearing my
own voice on tape… (Wow, the things I do for you!)

(for the Dutchies, there may start a workshop “live” or with a “live closing
day” around that time too, but those plans are still premature…
I’ll keep you informed!)


All you have to do to win my giveaway is

leave me a comment on this post.

Every name will enter the draw for the goodies-giveaway but if you
want to make a change to win the workshop, please tell me so in your comment
and I will put your name for that up too. (This is because I don’t want to give
away a workshop to someone who doesn’t really want it.)

And here is how you can improve your changes to win….

Grab my blinkie, put it on your blog and link back to me.

(copy the code you’ll find in my side bar to add this blinkie to your blog)

Tell me about the link in another comment here,
and I will enter your name TWICE!

I will announce the winners next Wednesday November 18th.

And now I go celebrate by photographing my “disintegration project”
for the last time outside. I will take it with me in the house after that
to dry… I’m so curious how it will look like!
I’ll show you photo’s in my next post! See you!

Je t’embrasse

    Congratulations on your blogiversary! It’s so crazy how time goes by…and best of luck on your workshop, journaling is the hardest part for me, but it sounds like you’ll have some great ideas/tips for everyone!

    Alweer 1 jaar Marit`s scrapworld, van harte proficiat 🙂
    Art journaling heeft mijn interesse op dit moment, dus zo`n workshop lijkt me enig!

    Groetjes en misschien tot morgen, Viv

  • Peggy Says:

    Happy blogaversary and … are you kidding me??? I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want it, a chance to win that workshop that is. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to win a parcel, but that workshop sounds deviiiiiiiine! I think that workshop covers just about everything I would want to learn next!!! I guess that means I’m interested LOL.

    I have a problem … I don’t know how to grab your blinkie. I think I need a URL (or some kind of code) to post it to my blog, but I can’t seem to find it. If I just copy and past it, it doesn’t blink anymore. Could you let me know how to do this?

    xxx Peggy

    Oops, I made a typing mistake, wanted to correct it and now I have left two comments, and I can’t remove the second. So here’s a third, to remind you that only my first one should count for the drawing!

  • Marit Says:

    Teeheee… I could have removed two of your comments Thinkie, but they’re way to funny to do that… I’ll take note to count you once.

  • Anniek Says:

    Heey Marit, Nou ik wil best wel te grabbel gegooid worden hoor!! 😉 Dat boekje van de Action heb ik trouwens al een hele tijd geleden gekocht dus misschien dat ze die niet meer hebben.

  • Jenneke Says:

    Marit, gefeliciteerd met je eerste blog-verjaardag!!
    Vanaf het moment dat ik Marit’s Scrapworld ontdekt heb, ben ik een trouwe bezoeker van je inspirerende website. Ik hou van je afwisselende, zeer creatieve werk en ik zou het dan ook helemaal te gek vinden om een workshop van je te winnen!! Of natuurlijk een door jou samengesteld ‘pretpakket’, ook niet te versmaden!!
    Duim voor mezelf!
