Calendars 2016 and more ...

Well, this week certainly has flown by. The kids have autumn-vacation, and we have been in our new house painting and doing all sorts of other things the whole week. I managed to start a few new wooden boxes, but nothing is even close to finished.

But ..... I finished my second calendar!! I'm pleased with myself that I managed to do it even though I had so little time. I'm now thinking of making one in Dutch too, I can just use the same images but put a Dutch quote instead of an English one.

This is the front of the new calendar:
and it's for sale here!

Here are some of the pages that I didn't show yet:

And here's where I am with my big canvas :-)

Every time I walk past it I throw some more paint on there. In between I snap pictures, and once I was looking at the pictures and saw some images very clearly. But alas, I had thrown more layers on top of it before I looked at the pictures on my camera, so the images were gone .... Now I'll just have to wait until something else is revealed to me :-S

Also: Society6 has a big promotion going on at the moment: free worldwide shipping and 5$ off everything in my shop! Until November 8th! They have some new products, like travel mugs and throw blankets, so have a look, there might be something you like for a present ;-)
The promotion is only available through this link.

That's it for now. I better hurry, Friday is almost over, and I want to link this to Paint Party Friday. And of course also to Show your Face.

Thanks for your visit! It's hugely apreciated, as well as your lovely comments and encouraging remarks. I wish you all a relaxing and kind weekend!

Here's my funny for this week :-)

lol .... :-)

Hugs and see you next week ♥ ♥ ♥


  1. Beautiful work, the calendar is great. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  2. Oh these are wonderful! I especially love their hair!

  3. Denthe, your calender is so beautiful! Each face is so individual and the colours are lovely. Your life is always so busy. I'm so glad you were able to find time to finish your calender. xx

  4. Oh Denise, do I really need both calendars???? I think I do since you made it SO hard to choose just one:):)

  5. Your big canvas is so full of color and movement - it already feels alive!! Happy PPF :)

  6. Your calendar looks amazing. I am sure it will inspire many souls.

  7. I love what your large canvas is becoming! Have a good week!

  8. everything looks so beautiful and well done - the calendar.
    love how your painting unfolds, one layer at a time.
    wishing you so much happiness in your new home!

  9. Mine is in route as we speak!! Yay!!
    I always look forward to seeing what you see as my mind still has not learned the intuitive techniques! Happy Weekend my friend! xoxo

  10. Oh these are beautiful...sounds like you have accomplished so much!! Glad you are reusing your faces!! I was looking for leggings in "light in the darkness"...but I didn't see any...that pattern would make gorgeous ones!!

    Hugs Giggles

    1. You're right, I didn't do any leggings yet. The resolution fot those needs to be really high. But I'll look into it :-)

  11. They all have wonderful own character. Love all beauties.
    Happy weekend xx

  12. Oh I just love your way to draw and paint faces (can't say it enough)!
    Your calendars look wonderful!
    And the way you mix colors and your choice of color combination is outstanding!

  13. It's funny how images can appear in these painted canvases but if you don't "mark" them there and then, they can disappear for ever. I can see all sorts of things in your large canvas, including a girl with blue bows in her hair sitting on a chair, she's wearing green trousers, and I can also see a horse or a unicorn starting - but you have probably painted more on it since then!
    Great calender pictures too.

  14. wow,love your faces,so colorful and had a beautiful mood,love this so much.

    hugs jenny

  15. Denise, je gezichten zijn sprekend en mooi, en net zo echt als een foto.!!
    Ook met Nederlandse teksten zal het veel mensen aanspreken..
    Als ik het goed begrijp ben je met veel dingen bezig
    zo dat je over even weer heel wat kunt laten zien,
    liefs groetjes Christiene.

  16. Nice calendar. Glad you are settled in. Always a spot of humor!! Xox

  17. I LOVE your calendar!!! Your big canvas I know will be amazing.
    Have a very nice Sunday

  18. HAHAHAHA!! Your funny cracked me up. ;-)
