Hello again!

Well, I'm back from my little holiday, all ready to get going again!

First of all, let me thank you for all the comments on my previous post! I really enjoyed reading it all, and I so appreciate you taking the time to visit me here.

I've been almost computer-free for the last week. I had limited access to internet, but really didn't spend much time on my laptop. We were in such a beautiful part of Queensland, and I enjoyed spending time with my family. I have been drawing every night though, and working out some ideas I had in my head.

Doodled a lot .....

Made new oneliners ....

And another mini-painting that I finished before we went on holidays

And when we got home yesterday, there was a wonderful surprise waiting for me in the mailbox:

When I was doing the 29 faces in February, there was a post on Tammie Lee's blog where she posted some pictures of envelope art she had made. I commented that I sure would be happy to get such beautiful mail, and next thing I knew was that she sent me a mail to ask for my address, and the promise that one of these envelopes might some time find their way to me ....

I'd actually forgotten all about it, so when I saw the envelope I was wondering who on earth could've sent me this. But then it all came back to me! Such a sweet thing to do Tammie, thank you so so much!

Inside the envelope there was a gorgeous card of one of her nature photographs.

I simply LOVE surprises like these! Go have a look at her blog, you won't be sorry!

Well, that's it for now. I will be back on Friday for the Paint Party, hope to see you again then!

And don't forget: you still have time to get your Etsyshop in topshape and sign up for the promotion month in May here.

hugs ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. I just love your doodles. The quote in the one liner made me smile! Just checked out your etsy shop I am sure I will be back later with credit card in hand, just a problem of deciding what..... there is a lot of loveliness there.

  2. Leuk dat je weer terug bent. Ik heb je een beetje gemist. Jammer dat je niet meedoet met de handjes challenge, maar je hebt gelijk.... het is best moeilijk om elke dag een hand te tekenen en erover te bloggen (qua tijd dan). Ik vond de gezichtjes achteraf ook leuker om te doen (veel meer mogelijkheden) Maar zolang het gaat, doe ik nog even voort.
    Je doodle is weer fantastisch en ook je oneliner!! Je minischilderijtje is prachtig (ook de tekst). Ik ga er nu nog even wat handjes op zetten :-) Zie je snel!

  3. Welcome back Denise... glad you had a lovely holiday... and enjoyed a break from the computer... your girls are beautiful... and love your envelope and photo from Tammie... her work is gorgeous... nothing quite like receiving art in the mail...

  4. hello Denthe,
    so glad that you enjoyed your mail from me!
    sounds like you had a wonderful time away. I also am not on line much right now. So it was fun to pick up your message and find your thank you post!

    your art is wonderful as always.


  5. wow you've been so busy!!! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your wonderful comment. :D I truly appreciate it.
    Your doodle is AMAZING! I love it!!! Your one liners are always so brilliant!! The gifts you received are truly lovely!!! It's always lovely to receive such gifts. :D If everyone just sent out something artistic and small to everyone this world would be a better place. :D oh and im working on opening an etsy store. I still have to learn so much. I had a store before but i got very busy with being prego that i couldn't do anything. But i'm working on it. :D Have a wonderful rest of the week!!! Talk soon! :D

  6. Looks and sounds like you had a perfect holiday!!! Great art♥♥♥♥♥

  7. Hi Denise, love your doodle, wow that is so impressive - how long would such a drawing take to do ? And there's nothing like receiving a letter in the mail especially if you didn't expect it!

    1. Thnx Joyce! I'm not sure how long a doodle like that takes. I always work on several at the same time, going back and forth, and then all of a sudden one is finished ... :-) It's really relaxing and fun to do in between other things. Hope you'll sign up for the Etsy-promotion! ♥
