Ive been TAGGED!!

By Jolanda

List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. Tag 5 friends and list them. Then, those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people. Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

1.I have a weakness for cute little things...
Notebooks with cute prints.
Little purses in shapes of Strawberries,Cupcakes or Monkeys etc.
Keychains with cute cartoon figures like Cinnamoroll.

And a lot more...

2.Disney,i LOVE it!!It makes me happy,excited
and you can be just as weird,little and crazy as you want to be there.
Nobody's gonna look strange when they see you walking
with a huge hat with ears...

3.Totally addicted to (Mona) chocolatemousse.
Yes i can eat a whole family size package by my own.
Okay i know,i must be ashamed :S

4.When i see something on the internet,at the mall or in a magazine,
i run to the computer and search on Ebay,Marktplaats and veilingkijker untill
i found it or something that looks like it!!

5. I am a collector...Everytime when i like something,i start to collect things from it.
And when i find something "new",i sell the previous collection and start a new one.

Okay so i don't know many bloggers,so i tag:Charlotte,Daphne,and....anyone???

I also couldn't resist making another Elsie challenge.
Challenge 11 choose a color scheme

Making room in my scrapplace...

Well my mother lives on the 13th floor,and they are going to redecorate the place.So her two cats stay with us for 5 weeks and needed a place for theyre own(since my cat's aren't the sweetest),so i had to make room in my scrapspace for them.Well it's only for 5 weeks,i'll keep telling myself :S But that also means that i am going to redecorate my whole scraproom.
I still have doubts about what style i want.I am going to take the bright color style,or the lovely Parisian style with pink,white and black.I really like the Antique style with all the beautiful furniture and then mix it with cute comic poodles and girls who are shopping.But that means i have to buy EVERYTHING new,and for the color room i only have to add and redo some things.Girls,help me out!!What shall i do??

My mother,Jack and my dad bought us some real nice presents!!Guess what??


WOW,i love it all!And all that for ONLY watching two cat's.Hah!

Whew! YIP! YIP! I can hardly believe you made a comment on MY thing! I was just blown away with "Only Real Men Wear Pink!"...and I loved you 10 things last week! Now see that I LOVE EVERYTHING you've done.....however, lady!....uhhh... you're sorta' on my list 'cause while I'm struggling to think of something new for this challenge, I see that you're .what?...through #8!!!!!! You TOTALLY ROCK, but I'm TOTALLY JEALOUS!!! Much as I love this craft, I'm new...keep hoping I get even NEAR your caliber of work! Thanks again sooooo much! Wish you were closer so I could pick your creative brain... kathi

Wow! You are even cool...not just a TERRRRRIIIIFFFFICCCCC scrapbooker!!! Is that a word??? I can't beleive out of the 30 billion "praises" you received, you posted mine on your blog and then gave ME a shout out! Whew! Talk about making someone's day! I honestly think....really, REALLY think you're going to do something spectacular in this field. You are just so amazing. I wasn't blowing smoke!..really wasn't! I wrote a praise on your pic BEFORE I got kudos from you! I just think your work is awesome and original and you DO inspire me! Hey, let's try and keep in touch. You've gotta' be cool if you can express yourself that way on a page...and obviously have a GREAT sense of humor! :) kathi

I love people who are so sweet and they give me a real good feeling about my work.
Especially because i have doubts about my work sometimes...

So a big shout out to Kathi,who is such great scrapper her self!!
For me she is the doodling queen :)

Sleepy time

Well not a verry productive weekend,but i did get a chance to just relax and sleep.I started with a rolodex swap,but at the 14th card i started to get grumpy :) So it was time for some "normal" scrapping,which i havn't finished jet.I hope to finish that LO today,but i think Akkefietjes pizza box will arrive today.So you never know :) I also recieved an email from Scrapart if i was still interested in being they're DT member.I asked them months ago if they needed someone.But i am already on a DT,so that was no option.I hope they will find the right person for they're DT!!Well i am waiting for an important email,so i hope to have some good news this week!!

Saturday, August 12, 2006

Good news!!

I recieved a call yesterday from Akkefietje,that i am going to be the new DT member.
That will be so much fun!Can't wait to go and meet them all.

Ive got some great news!!

Elsie Flannigan is coming to my local scrapbook store!! I am so excited to meet her.You can now sign up for a workshop,and if you pay for the 15th of august,you will recieve a bag o goodness!!Well hope to see you there...


Yesterday we celebrated Mari her 21st birthday!!Wow time flies...We are friends for 6 years now,and i hope that we will stay friends forever!!So we wanted our favorite chocolate cakes,but they were out of stock.So we took a hazelnut cake,but we didn't like it.So everyone is welcome to come and eat cake at my house :)

We did some scrapping,but it didn't worked out for me like i wanted it.Maybe because i haven't sleep well the last couple of days.Yesterday i woke up at 3am :S And now it is 4 am,and i am sooo tired.Fortunately Clarence will be back tonight,so i can sleep like a normal person.

Mari bought Elsie's new book,so we are going to do some challenging together!!My second challenge didn't worked out like i wanted it...Oh well,better luck next time!!
