Nothing creative is coming out of my hands right now...Partly because I'm busy with other things, like three year old girls almost getting four....sigh...(Laura was cutting her own hair this morning. Luckily I found out in time so no much damage was done..) But mostly because I'm feeling restless. I know why because the rest of the family is suffering from the same 'disease': tired of waiting and so looking forward to our new familymember, the puppy. This Saturday we will be going to see the puppies again and than we will know which one will be ours! Another eight nights sleep after that and our home will be his home! In the meantime I'm making our house and garden 'puppy proof'...

Last sunday I started a new art journal, with the intention to write daily or weekly about the things that are going on in my life. I'm not a journaler at all so I thought this would force me to step out of that well known comfort zone...Nope! The first thing that happened was a collage, just like I did in my other journals. I loved the collage but it wasn't what I had it is still waiting for the 'big paintmarker attack'...I flipped to another page, grabbed my paint and started on a new page. No, too dull...So I flipped again to another page...stamping, painting, glueing things, still not satisfied...
Yesterday I bought a big bucket of gesso so I think I'm gonna start these pages all over again...with a fresh layer of gesso!
Ok, I finished one project last week: decorating the cradle for the dolls at the playgroup of my youngest!

Dat klinkt inderdaad een beetje 'rusteloos' Sandra! Gewoon laten gaan - 'go with the flow' - en dan kom je vanzelf wel uit bij datgene wat jou ligt. Veel plezier met het 'puppiebezoek' vandaag!

Heel herkenbaar Sandra!!! Gewoon even laten gaan, het heeft geen zin om aan iets te beginnen als je je zo voelt. Het komt vanzelf wel weer hoor. Goed idee om dan bijvoorbeeld zo'n wiegje op te pimpen. Je bent dan namelijk toch lekker creatief bezig!!
Hebben jullie de pup gezien die binnenkort bij jullie komt wonen???
