Soon we have a second littkle kitten living with us. Her name is Zara. She’s now 9 weeks old. She’s cute, not ?!


This is also my first digital lay out made in Photoshop Elements 4.o for Mac. Can I make a little complain?? It is quite stupid that i cannot open a PNG file in the program. Okay, i have another program, so I can solve it. But I really think it is stupid. Do you know what, they released it ages ago…. You should think they made a patch by now.

But he, I AM quite PROUD of myself to have worked in Photoshop Elements!




Today I gave a workshop for two friends and someone I met via my website and wanted to take a class in acrylic. Four women of different backgrounds, different age, different style. But we found each other as person and in painting. GREAT!

I was so enthousiastic that I forgot to take pictures, but I made a journalpage from it.

And for Janny, @nneke and Ingrid: you may choose the butterfly you like most and be her! (unfortunatly the scan doesnot eat the colours quite well… ;-(





Okay. It has been long, too LONG since I wrote on this blog. Holidays and clearing my art and craft materials kept me from writing first. At new years eve we discovered a leak in the kitchen… We had to take out the floor, had new plumbing, bought a new floor, assurance etc etc. This week we discovered a new leak… Luckily the new floor is not installed yet ;-))


I started this year making a 8×8 inch 2007 scrapbook. Not the usual stuff I make, but (to me) very rewarding, seeing what we all did and achieved. And to memorize, because it is All going soo FAST!


I arranged the scrapbookby theme. This is Ziggy’s page. He is our 9 month old cat, and we are all fond of him. He likes to lay in my arms like a baby….


This page is about my grandma, she is now 91 years old, and her health is fragile. But: STILL going strong. My mother told me today she fell yesterday. And was found 3 hours later. She did not wear her alarm (with that she could have beeped somebody)…

I do this scrapping by the way hybrid (never knew how it was called, read this on the internet). It means that you scrap partly on your computer and partly FOR real. Mmm, hope you understand.

Now, something that is more common for me: a mixed media card I made for friends who celebrated their 12,5 year wedding. I painted and stamped with acrylic paint, the heart i filled with gelmedium and when it was dry, bronzed it. Stippeled with a stencil and ink and coloured with metallic pencil (the scan doesn’t show the metallic shine that gives ;-(


OKAY, i have started the year 2008 on my blog, FINALLY. I promise the next one won’t take that long!!
