treasures of the day

Today was one of my favorite days. I went to the flee market and found a few things I really like.

De berenboot

A lot of slides, I will have some work to see what's on it, I'm curious.

Old packages from the sixties with little photographs, a lot of material to sketch in my little books

I still need 2 members for my give away so I can pick out (our my cat) a winner!!

on christmas evening

I made some illustrations on envelopes.
Het maakt me rustig. Zo heb ik wat envelopjes klaar voor de dagen die komen, waarschijnlijk begint iedereen te feesten nu, voor mij is tekenen het leukste feest!
Geniet van je avond iedereen

craft it forward

Some time ago I joined Craft it forward at wide-eye-tree and yesterday I received a beautiful package with fantastic pieces of art and I am really happy with all of it

Now it's my turn to continue the game. I will send something handmade to the first 5 who leave a comment. Just tell me that you want to participate. After you get my surprise, you have to post about it and pass it on (send something handmade to the first 5 who comment). It can be anything (something sewed, painted, felted, a photography, anything you like), as long as it is handmade by you and sent out before the 6th of january.

So, who wants to take part?

a lucky day with wonderful real mail

Ik kreeg vandaag heerlijke post, ik ben gek op bruine pakjes in de brievenbus en vandaag had ik er twee.
Zoals je ziet, een pakje van de artistieke claudia, heerlijk zoveel mooie kunstwerkjes,thank you claudia, did you knew that I love deers? Nu is het aan mij om 5 handgemaakte postpakketjes op te sturen. Morgen meer informatie hierover

And all the way from Japan, also a brown envelope with 2 doilies I won with the give-away from coco and some seeds I can plant in spring. Hope winter is soon over. Thank you coco, you will receive some mail  in 2012

I am so happy!!
