calendar page week 21

Dear friends,

I wish you all a happy Eastern and want to thank you for subscribing and commenting. Love to read your comments and they always give me the feeling not to be totally crazy crafting but that there are more people out there who do love the same as I do.

So here´s my week 21 with a traveling theme:

Stamps used: de Stempelwinkel and tiddly ink (suitcases).

Have a great day with your family and good luck finding many easter eggs!

I almost forgot: there are some news I want to share with you. I am leaving the DT of de Stempelwinkel at the end of June, but for those who follow the blog, Jetske has found a great new DT member. You really should take a look. You can see some of the new DT member already in April.

It´s been a hard decision but I have to do more sports and less crafting. And being forced to limit my crafting time I wanted to be a free spirit, crafting whatever I want and whenever I have time.
And taking crafting online-classes (21 secrets) this will use up quite a bit of that time. I am going to show you my efforts :)

A big hug

calendar page week 19

It´s a bird´s world for week 19. I used magazine pages for the bird silhouettes (this paper is great as it is not so thick) and doddled a little bit. Mod Podge glued everything together.

Have a nice day

Ballons for the 3 muses challange

Still fighting the cold and being forced to stay at home (not walking around like a virus monster) I tried my luck with the new topic at

Stamps used: artistic outpost, de Stempelwinkel
Happy sneezing (just kidding, hope you can avoid getting ill)

journaling page with the letter P

My daugher is a very giving person - which is great, don´t get me wrong - but concerning her viruses and illnesses I´d rather be not given anything.
So this morning due to a lot of caughing and sneezing I got up at 4 am, and finished this journaling page and a lot more stuff. It´s incredible what you can get done at this hour. Quite and special moments that let creativity flow

Just in case you are wondering: I used a face stencil and pan pastels for my first try.
Stamps I used are from art journey and Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz.
Due to popular demand:
the face stencil is from

Calendar pages week 16 and 17

Here we go again - doing that weekly calendar makes me realize how much time is flying.  Keeping up with the weeks and journaling each week gives you a feeling of how short each time span is.

As you know I am not much of a sewer so isn´t it great that Hot of the press is helping me out :)

The funny guy you might have seen before (100 proof press) and the rest is a wild mixture of Hero Art, pink paislee and 7gypsies.
This page started completly different - but I did not really like it, great there is gesso :)

Art journal page with Alice

Here´s an art journal page with Alice (soorry, I do love the characters and it´s one of the topics for this month) where I tried to combine digital images from scrapbookgraphics and stamps from de stempelwinkel. Making the list at the blog with all the links to the stamps I just had realized how many there were.

So for the recipe you go to

The page was inspired by Maddalena Gerli

T&T were bored by all the heads up and stuff. They decided to get a job and believe me, if was a tough choice.
They built a boat (from one of mother goose super eggs) and hired a helper for the steam. And off they went
