Where did time go .....

It's a long time since my last post in November 2010! Many good things happened since then .....

October 22nd we got the key to our new house. That was also the start of a very busy period, many hours of painting, cleaning and decorating the house. Three months of hard work and January 15 we moved to our new place. From that moment on a lot of little chores had to be done. The final thing inside the house was to organize my scraproom. Later on, when the weather became better, we started outside with the paving and yet the garden has our priority.


In the meantime many cups of coffee and tea were served to those who came to visit our new home. We celebrated all four our birthdays, Jeffrey turned 18 and Jarno 16.

It's hardly unbelievable but I didn't scrap for 8 months. My last creative outburst was an article for "Creatief met Kaarten" (Spring issue) which I finished in October. Used the beautiful Graphic 45 papers - Steampunk Debutant, Colorcore cardstock and Prima flowers. And guess what .... for the first time I made the cover of a magazine. A small picture though, but still .....

These are the five cards I created with the wonderful stuff Kars send me.




Two weeks ago a collegue asked me to do a workshop for 19 ladies of a volleybal team. That's what got me started to pick up my scrapwork again. A fresh start also needs a new look for my weblog.

Happy to be back and hope to see you next time, wish you all a sunny week.

Greetings Mariska
