Busy me

Summertime is almost here and we all know what that means!Entertaining the kiddo's with outside stuff like picnicks,swimming,going to the movies and more.So i decided that this week i would focus on myself while thhe kids were at school.The weather was beautiful(with beautiful i mean FREAKIN HOT)and i relaxed and did some shopping.Went to the city with my bff Marianne and to the Mc Donalds with the kids afterwards.Then the weather changed into rain,and i got sick.So spent my day's sleeping and working on my painting i started on a workshop.I want to create a painting that looks different to everyone.You might see a butterfly,fairy or flower in it?Or maybe something else,and that's just great!
My new favorite drink this summer will be Sangria!My mom make's it so good,and i simply can't stop...I am pretty sure there will be many nights this summer including this fun drink!
 Here are some Instagram shots in my week of ME time.Some OOTD and hair do pictures.

My new goal is to make everyday pictures with my phone and start working on some Project Life pages,i have seen so many fun pages!!I will keep u updated,happy scrapping!

Melting, i am melting...

It sure is HOT here in The Netherlands,great for working on my skintone but not so much for the creativity.But good news is...Tatadaaa I created a new project using Dove of the East products!Love love love Doveen's products,can't compliment them enough.Her unique design's and embellishments are joy to work with,and this layout came together all by itself.I wanted to create some more projects but i ran out of Paris themed photo's,so i'm gonna have to print some.

Here's what i made using the Paris line.My nr.1 favorite activity,thrifting!Should you ever have to answer a quiz about me ;)

Good news on the Boy's department!Both are going over to the next grade.Happy Mommy!
Here are some pictures from Maxim with his new presents,and still have to make some of Julian.
Ofcourse Maxim decided to pick something from Cars,and a toy from a new movie called Planes.I see a new favorite coming up!Julian got Lego Monster Fighters and Lego Harry Potter,how surprising?! lol

I am totally into Instagram at the moment,when i first got it for Android it only had three filters...Boring!But they have upgraded and i am getting seriously hooked,hope i'm not stalking you people with pictures of crazy old me :) If you like you can add me,my name is todaysmommy !

See you soon!

So it has been like...forever since i've done a post.And it has been forever since i did anything creative.If someone would ask me why and what did you do instead?I havn't really got a good answer.There is not a real reason why i didn't do anything creative,i was just not feeling like it.Maybe just lazy?Maybe just busy with life?I don't really know.So what did i do instead...I was keeping myself busy with watching series and movies,going thrifting in the weekends and spending time with family.But what about all those days during the week?I was just asking myself this question the other day,and i had no answer!I seriously have no idea where all my days go.It is seriously bugging me,so i have to do some serious changes.I need to do more great things,so i have more great stories to tell!!

When i am feeling stressed or emotional,i have a great urge to do something creative.(Or eat Chocolate!)I have missed Scrapbooking,a lot!But since my desk was full with...crap,and i don't really have a great lamp to scrapbook in the evening i just didn't create anything anymore.Because my day's were so full and overbooked...No,i was just lazy!Instead i would just browse Pinterest or Ebay looking for more stuff to fill my house with instead of declutering my house.

So my new goal is to create atleast something every week!(I have to take it slow... lol)But maybe if i feel really inspired stuff will keeps on going here,i sure hope so!Since Julian is totally into Lego at the moment( and when i say Lego i especially mean Lego Harry Potter), we have been watching the Harry Potter movies over and over again.So are Love for Harry Potter has made a huge comeback in our lives.I think it will be fun to start making a little Harry Potter album with stuff that i printed and pictures from Julian etc.

Before i go and hope to create something for my new(hopefully creative)post,i will leave you with my cute vintage wallpapers i found while thrifting.Aren't these cute?!

Have a great day and Happy Scrapping!
