Calendars 2018!

My map-calendar arrived and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Here you can see the front:

And a few pages:

And here they are all three together:

There's 2 English ones and one is Dutch. If you want to see the images inside the calendars you can have a look here, here, here and here, or you can simply go to my Lulu-store and click on preview beneath the picture of the cover.

And as I promised: from now until Sunday the 5th of November, you'll get 15% off! So don't put it off anymore if you want one and get it now, because after Sunday it'll be the normal price again.

This is the link for the map-calendar (all in English), this is the link for the English calendar with images of my paintings, and this is the link for the Dutch calendar with images of my paintings. You can also find the links in the sidebar of this blog.

The auction for Puerto Rico is still going strong. You can find it here. Almost 2,000 $ has been raised so far. It has been steadily going up the first days, but now it seems as if it has come into higher gear. I haven't been on my computer during the day because I was working, and when I looked this evening I was shocked to see that both of my pieces have bids of 100 $ already. Wow, I never expected that! I'm actually getting a bit nervous now, just hope the buyers won't be disappointed having paid that much money ... But it's also a thrill. And actually a really fun way to raise money for a good cause.

Here are the two items I donated again:

Have a look at the other auction items here, it's all very different so there's something for everyone's taste :-) And don't forget: tomorrow is the last day! The auction ends Nov 03 at 3.00pm EDT.

This week was a really busy week work-wise, so I didn't get any art done. Well, I did a little bit, I finished a lot of wooden hearts to bring to the 2 shops that sell my products. They still need some rope to hang it with and a few layers of varnish. Here you can see some:

They were fun to do and easy to do in between other things. Still hoping though to find time to work in my journals or even start a new painting.... Who knows, maybe next week ...

That's it for this week, except of course for the funnies :-)

and the other ones ...

That's it for this week! I'll be linking up to Paint Party Friday tomorrow.

Wishing you a beautiful end of the week! 
Thanks so much for your visit, and I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

  14. Love your hearts and all your art. Just ordered my calendar.

  15. So sorry for the delay in my writing! I am away visiting my son in his new home.

    The calendars are gorgeous again Denise!! Hoping to order one when I return home!

    WOW Your pieces for the auction netted some nice cash(although, I believe they are worth way more!)
    The only bad thing about those auctions is sometimes the people who bid, are bidding on a name,or a friend. All money made from there is absolutely worth it-it is going to where it is needed! I was not able to participate this time as I am here, but have in the past with Jessica, glad to see you did!

    How is your weather, have you had snow there? It is rain and more rain here! argh!
    I am just thrilled to be with my son!
    take care, and sending love,Jackie

  16. Congratulations on finishing your calendars..I know how much work is involved with each one. I'm still working on mine, and doubt I'll get it finished in time.

    I hate to admit this, but I read the responses to Trump's tweets almost daily. Some of them are so hilarious. People aren't holding back their feelings, that's for sure.

  17. I received your map calendar yesterday. Truly beautiful art and quotes. Thank you!

    1. thanks so much Linda! I'm so glad you enjoy it ♥
