time to breathe again :-)

I've had 2 very busy weeks, so no blogposts or blogvisits for me. Glad things have settled down a bit now, and I can post again.

I've mostly been working on things for my market, like rocks and boxes, and I'm looking forward to playing a bit in my journals again.

First of all my wallpaper for this month:


And here's the link to download it to your computer!

I enjoyed making a wallpaper for every single month this year, as a gift to my newsletter-subscribers and my blog readers. Hope you enjoy this last one!

Here are some wooden boxes that I finished recently:





And some of the rocks I painted:

 this is a really big one full of doodles

 faces in progress




They all have a text on the backside, but since the text is in Dutch I'll just show you the front.

And I made a whole bunch of Christmas- and New Years cards. A lot of them with Dutch text, but here are some in |English:




Well, that's it for now. I hope next week I can share the pictures of our bathroom, since it should be completely finished by then.

I also want to thank all of you who have already purchased my calendar. I'm so happy that a little bit of my art  is finding its way into houses all over the world :-)
For those of you who are interested in buying it: here's the link for the calendar with the English quotes. In the sidebar you can find the link for the calendar with the Dutch quotes.

I'm linking this to Paint Party Friday, and looking forward to visiting everyone there. It's been a while since I had the chance.

I'll finish with some funnies, because, let's face it, we all need to keep smiling :-)





And then these Biden-Obama-memes that are popping up all over the place. I love them :-D




This is a not so funny one but one that says perfectly what I think ....


And to end these beautiful words that we all should keep in mind.


Thanks for your visit! Wishing you a great day and a loving weekend ♥ ♥ ♥

  16. Your art is incredible! I love it all...and I'm so happy with my calendar. Thanks for posting funnies, too. I think we all need them...especially now. And I agree with you about the Trump disability thing. What could possibly make people think that was okay?

  17. Denise I have seen a lot of painted rocks but yours are outstanding. The boxes are amazing as well. I am so happy your calendar is selling. The anger, hate and bigotry that trump instigated here in the US continues with a momentum unprecedented. Don't get me wrong, it has always been here, now however, people think they can say and act brazenly with no consequences. Some are finding that just not to be true. I have a friend with a mentally challenge daughter who voted for him. I was and still am appalled. Sorry for carrying on but his campaign is the least of our problems now.

    1. You can carry on as much as you like Nicole, it doesn't bother me. I'm happy people are still protesting and speaking up against him. The biggest danger in my opinion is that everything he says and does is becoming normal and no one will take notice anymore. I will keep on protesting him and keep on sharing articles about him on Facebook and keep on ridiculing him. There's this quote by Einstein that says "The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing" and this is so true. I hope the majority of Americans will not just "look on and do nothing"....
