Autumn is coming

Hi there,

Yup, Autumn is coming. Its getting colder, the leaves are starting to fall from the trees and the toy books are in (in Holland, the biggest toy stores send books to everyone :)), they even have kruidnoten, chocolate letters and other St. Nick stuff in the supermarkets. I was in Action on Friday and they have Christmas decorations all ready to go….pffff From November 11th its always chaos in our house right up until January 2nd!

I started my new job on Monday and it is quite cool. We buy and sell fresh fish, some are sold without us cutting them, most are filleted, deskinned or descaled. The people that work there have worked in fish most of their lives and never, ever has anyone told them how to work hygenically, not that they don’t work hygenically but they just do what they have to do without thinking about what happens if…….So that is my job. I have to guide them to working acoording to hygiene rules and regulations and eventually get cerification for this. There is a lot of work to do…yes inside the factory, with my co-workers and on the administration side too….but hey, in that lies the challenge LOL.

So it’s September 25th already. October is Halloween month although its not really celebrated here in Holland. I made some elements for the MissesBeeHaven Collab last year, seeing as MissesBeeHaven no longer exists i decided to expand the mini to a full fledged kit and guess what, as i dont have a store at the moment, it’s all yours if you want to download.

Here are the images:

All the elements are drawn by me (except the ribbons and buttons lol).Β It contains 24 papers, 23 elements, 7 word arts and 1 alpha. You do need to let me know what you think so i know i can make some more…..ROFL

I disconnected the link. If you want another shot at grabbing this kit, keep an eye on my blog as it will be re-freed around the opening of my store πŸ™‚

That’s all for now !

Back to school

Hi there,

First of all i would like to say that my thoughts are with everyone in the US especially on the east coast. I wish you all well and safe !!

So it’s Sunday and Yvano has only one week of summer holiday left before he goes back to school. I am presuming the rest of Europe isn’t far behind LOL. We are having a pyjama day…just a relaxing day, in our jammies, no plans, just chilling. I made these wa’s this morning and seeing as i dont have a store to add this too i might as well give it away.

Here is my back to school word art pack. I made a new preview page too. I just love this colour green. Its fresh and clean and jumps out at you LOL. Let me know what you think please πŸ™‚

The download link is HERE

I hope you all have a great day, take care !

Wow that was some holiday :)

Hiya peeps πŸ™‚ LOL,

So i am back from holiday. We were out camping for four weeks. Well it’s not really camping, we have a caravan on a camp site, two hours from here, the weather was rubbish but Yvano had fun, so did we, we barbecued in the rain, went fishing in the rain, drank coffee with our neighbours in the rain and had a beer or two in the rain. LOL Nobody got a cold LOL

So now it’s back to the grindstone and i can now tell you more about the issues that were bothering me before the holiday ! First, i have a new job πŸ™‚ I dont know if you know what i do LOL I am a Quality Control Manager. I have to ensure the quality of our products is at its best and always the same. Now i do this in a Dim Sum factory. I got offered a job, doing the same thing, a lot closer to home for more money πŸ™‚ Because its closer to home my hours are a little more flexible so i can stay home 1 afternoon extra with Yvano :):)
The second thing on my mind is that MissesBeeHaven is closing the store 😦 That makes me very sad. It seems that it’s really hard to keep a store open for two years in this scrapping world. Even if you have awesome designers in it. I saw the same at My Life And Scrap….(changed hands and was destroyed by the new owner :()

So with all that out in the open LOL I am looking for a new store. One i can feel at home in, preferably with a forum i can join in, i love active forums πŸ™‚ Know about one, let me know πŸ™‚

So i have here a quote for you πŸ™‚ This is too cool, Yvano said this to me when i was reading him a story on holiday. ‘To make gold, all you need is bronze, yellow paint and some glitter’ This really kept me laughing for ages. Not quite sure what you could use it for but i just couldn’t not do something with it πŸ™‚

Here it is…

Here is the download link.

Huggles for now !


He peeps,

Do you have those days when you feel you have a lot on your lifes plate. I know i do. I try to juggle a 4 day job, a kid with adhd and pdd nos, a hubby with usual hubby problems, my housekeeping, my scrapping and/or designing and my jewellery making. When one extra thing comes along it kind of tilts the scale….my gosh, i hope you know what i mean. Thats how i feel right now ! I cannot tell you right now what is going on in my life but i promiss i will soon.

In the mean time this word art is precious ! I love this quote and its so me right now ! Here it is:

Here is the download link !

I hope you enjoy todays word art !
I also wanted to say thank you ever so much for leaving me so much love on the grandfather piece, its always so good to here your compliments, you can also leave suggestions πŸ™‚

Hi peeps,

Do you have times you miss your loved ones ? I do, every single day !! My mum lives in the US (Tampa, FL), while i live in Holland. My dad passed away when i was six months pregnant with Yvano and i have a fued with my sister who won’t talk to me anymore…. But hey, what can you do about it ? Thats life right….. WRONG πŸ™‚ I scrap about it.

I made this freebie for a photo of my dad. I find it sad every single day that he and Yvano never got to meet, they would have had a blast together, i just know it πŸ™‚

So here is my freebie for today !
