New Year-New Goals

2008 has not been a very good year for me.I am not really a person who set goals for the new year,but i think it's time to change that!My goal for 2009 is to create structure in my life.I never was the kind of person who had structure,but i really need it now.Hopefully i feel better when my life is more organized.Not really sure where to get started,but i am busy making a list with things i need to do in the next couple of weeks.Maybe somebody knows a book about structure in your life??Any help is welcome...I am alway's wondering what people are doing everyday,since it feels like my day's just fly by.Which bring me to the second goal for 2009.Being less lazy!!No more PJ day's untill noon...Get up and do SOMETHING!But i guess that will change anyway when i create structure.The fact that i need to do everything by myself got me really depressed.I always expected other people to help me and make me happy.But i know the time has come that i need to do things by myself.Doesn't make me happy now,but i hope it will at the end.Hopefully it makes me stronger and more mature...

Since i am going to stay in Lelystad for a while i need to do a make-over in my house.It has to become more Fauve,so i feel more at home.I don't have the money to do everything at once,so i am doing one room at the time.Not sure what style to choose for my bedroom...I loveeeeee bright colors,but i am also using those in my scraproom.Yes,i am blessed to have a spare room!Somewhere in my house i want to paint the walls a mint green-teal color.That color just makes me happy!Maybe in combination with pink :) I also love the brocante Shabby Chic style,but not sure where to use it.I have this beautiful brocante chair,mirror and comb set.Which doesn't go with anythinggggggg in my home haha Oh well,going to brain about that one...Again,any tips and decoration tips are more then welcome!

Okay,over to Christmas!We started off with the presents on Christmas morning.And as you can see from the pictures...Way too many presents,like really REALLY crazy!!My kids got rotten spoiled,with so many toy's i don't even know how to take them home with me.They got this big yellow hummer,which is fantastic!Julian was way excited about the huge car,and became a real pro after some practice.Ofcourse he got a big pirate ship,since he has been asking for it for over 6 months...Julian got one and maxim got one,both different.Ofcourse they wanted to play with the ship that wasn't theirs.I couldn't care less :)
I was trying to make some good Christmas pictures but sjeez...It was almost impossible with my two kids.They didn't want to work with me and were very annoyed LOL So they were constantly turning their heads,and Maxim was NOT going to take his soother out.Oh well,maybe next year :D

I missed taking pictures!And i am planning to do some more shoots soon.I am thinking about taking my kids to the graffiti park.I just LOVE those Urban shoots.

Talking about pictures...I really like this picture from my brother and his girlfriend.Well i guess that's about it!Hope you all have a fabulous year coming up,may all your dreams come true!I have big scrapbooking plans for 2009,so thanks for everyone who kept me going and didn't give up on me!You are the best <3

*We wish you a Merry Christmas!*

And a Happy New year.(If i didn't update my blog before that...)These really really cool dishes got me in the mood for Christmas.It makes me Happy just looking at it...I bought them at the AH supermarket,but unfortunately a lot of the stuff was already sold out.That's what you get when youre late with buying your presents....But luckily my mom already has most of the stuff for her place.This way i can steel it when she's not looking :D
They also had these cute Matroesjka(Is that the right name?) doll candles.Not really Christmas if you ask me but i like them anyway.I am staying at my mom's for a while,so no Scrapbooking unfortunately.

But i did got a chance to shoot some fun pictures together with Julian :) Next time when Maxim is awake,we are going to make some Family pics from the three of us!

My new LOVE...Red lipstick!

Can't wait to Scrap these...Happy Scrapping!

Happy Scrapping,Love Fauve

Scrap! magazine

Sorry,it took me so long to update!My intentions were good.but somehow i failed again... :D
Didn't do any scrapbooking,so i didn't have a lot to share either.But then Scrap! magazine came out and i can show you my layouts.I got to play with a lot of Cosmo Cricket stuff.And these primary colors just totally fit me.First i thought it were the really bright pink and applegreen colors that suits me best.But these colors were just so much easier to work with...Maybe it is because i have two boy's???

So this is my new favorite layout :D Like i said,i really like the colors.But i also like the picture together with this title.For me it just all comes together.(And i don't think that way about my layouts very often...)

Another new favorite...Love this weird picture :)
I had a lot of fun layering all the pictures.Ofcourse cutting them was not that funny...

I also made some layout's for the Cosmo Cricket Mr.Campy line.That stuff was fun!!Some of the colors were a bit too soft and retro for me,but it opened a new world for me...

Simply adore this picture...And that background paper was my favorite from the Mr.Campy line.

Seeying this picture,instantly made me think of Joey from Friends.(Joey doesn't share food...)Had to use it for a title...
I've got some serious creative parents.My dad came up with this title.Me likey!
Gotta love that tree paper...

So at the moment i am visiting my mom in Tilburg.I had a date last Tuesday,which was a lot of fun!Still this whole dating thing is nothing for me...I was so nervous,i thought i was going to faint.The guy score some huge points by saying WOW when he saw me... ;)

Yesterday i wen't to see Madagascar 2 with my brother and Jeff and it was sooo Funny!!Seriously,i LOVEEEEE Moto Moto...If you havn't see it jet,you should go and see it!

Here you can watch the clip from Moto Moto

See you soon,Happy Scrapping!

So it's been a while!Didn't do much these last couple of day's.I still feel like i am living in some kind of show...I am mostly doing laundry/cleaning,and talk with friends/family online.I wish i wouldn't feel so lost at the moment.I am still questioning myself why these things are alway's happening to me.It's not that i pitty myself (well,maybe a bit),but i just feel like my life isn't going forward.I wan't to enjoy the little things in life again.My most precious and beautiful kids...And with all these things happening to me,i feel like i can't REALLY enjoy it.Well,change is gonna come.It must!

I made this layout using a sketch.I don't use sketches that often but i like to once in a while...I wanted to use some retro colors for this.Not really my thing,but it was time for something different.I love these pictures so much!
I'll be back soon with some more stories.Take care,Happy Scrapbooking!

Heart broken

To answer the question;Did you unpack?,my answer is Yes.But unfortunatelly not for long...

As i told here before,C and i were going to try to make our relationship work again.He has been telling me over and over for months now that he wanted to be with his family,and was willing to fight hard for it.He told me his love for me wasn't the same because i had been away for so long,but he was sure it would become the same when we would live together.Saturday i moved into our old place again where we would wait for a place in Amsterdam.But somehow it was not "meant to be".Three day's after moving in,C told me this was not ging to work.We were too different and he doesn't love me the same way as he did before.He loved someone else.There went my future!Ofcourse i was heart broken,sad,angry and lot's more.I have to start all over AGAIN.Looking for a place to live,school for my children,and money to survive.I can stay in our old place untill i find something else.C is moving out at the end of the month.It's all so unreal,i still can't believe it!

I don't feel like scrapbooking and blogging at the moment,and i can't tell when i will be back...

Happy Halloween!

First of all,Happy Halloween!I love this holiday!Wish we would celebrate it here in The Netherlands...I don't have a Halloween house this year,but next year i am sooo gonna give a Halloween party!

Here is part 2 of the layouts i made for Scrap!Some are made a VERY long time ago..But hey,i had to show something.Almost all of my supplies are packed,so not much scrapbooking here.But i am going to unpack on Sunday and then hopefully scrapbook again early next week.Looking forward to it!

Dedication to my blog :)
I am going to change the journaling on this one.I think it looks ugly,so any idea's are welcome...
This is one of those layouts that i made a very long time ago.I was totally into frames at the moment.I still like it after all this time...
Autumn colors are so NOT my thing...So i am not really sure if i like this layout.Think i am going to re-use this picture,since it's one of my favorites.My girl Mari alway's deserves a colorful fun layout!
Jup,REALLY long time ago...Like the frame though.Gotta love the scallop bling border LOL

I'll be back soon,Happy Scrapping!

I am busy packing all my stuff for the move.A LOT of scrapbooking stuff...a LOT of shoe's...a LOT of random stuff...Wish me luck.

Happy Scrapping!

Scrap! layouts part 1

Okay here are some oldies!Some of my all time favorites...Not all,some i don't like at all.Guess that's part of the progress right?I am a total mood swinger,and you can really see that in my scrapbooking.Gives it a special touch i think.

This is one of my favorites!I love the way the background turned out.And that color combo is yummo.I just realised that the 5 is missing...
Yes,i have two kids.But that doesn't hold me back from being a girly girl once in a while.(okay okay,a lot of the time)I can't help the fact that i have an addiction for cute stuff.I blame my mom...Pretty fly...for a group of HOT girls?? :D Best picture we took that day!I Love this picture from my friend Barbara.It looks so funky...That green is one my favorite colors for scrapbooking.Fits perfect with that yellow envelope if you ask me! Not sure if i like this layout...Gorgeous picture is from my friend Helene.
For my friend Dana.She ones wrote that she likes to laugh but "It has to be funny".Nothing feels better then ripping of pieces from your layouts.If you havn't done that,you should try it!I had to use that domino frame :)

Okay,that's it for now!I will show part 2 in the next couple of day's.I am off to browse the internet looking for treats that Julian can give on his farewell party at school.

Any idea's are more then welcome...Happy Scrapping!

New ScrapMojo and Sweet Spuds!

Okay,here is some new eyecandy for my blogging friends!The new ScrapMojo challenge is up,and i choose to scrap about Ghost stories.I LOVE them,alway's have.I love talking,hearing and reading about them.But they also scare the sh*t out of me...So that's why i decided to let it rest for a while.I hope there comes a day that i can put my fear aside and dig into all the interesting stuff around ghosts...

It's not a "new design" layout,but it sure was a feel good page!Go check out the fun challenge at ScrapMojo and the awesome work of the Mojo girls!The sweet Gina from the Sweet Spuds kitclub asked me to guest design for them this month!It was really cool kit and i had so much fun playing with it.Go check out there site.They have an amazing team and a really cool kit!

Here is what i made with the kit.
The weather is terrible at the moment!But i made some fun Autumn pictures last week.I really like them.Can't wait to scrap them,so i guess you will be seeying them on my pages soon!

My ex-hubby and i also made a huge decision.We decided to give it a try again...I think we both learned more in the last 2 years,but only time will tell.We are both nervous and a bit insecure but i guess that's normal.So yeah,if you wondered what got me busy these last couple of weeks,i think this is a huge part.

So within 2 weeks i will be living in the North of Holland again,and i will be scrapping with my girl Martine every week again.YAY!

So i know i keep telling you i will be back with my Scrap! layouts...But somehow i am to lazy to get them out of a box and take pictures from them Ha!I hope to make pictures tomorrow...But i better not prommise anything :)

I'll be back soon,Happy Scrapping!
