I've been a bit busy

But with what ? Wel even though I had a weeks holiday I have been working my b.... off.

All products that I bought recently are all in the webshop, all the new workshops are on the site, most of the demo models have been made and oh yeah I've been playing with the boys every now and then too ...

Did some scrapping with my friend Wendy & Martine on wednesday evening but can't show it yet.

On Thursday we went to the theater with the boys to see the musical "Kikker in the clouds" which we almost missed due to a power shortage. Luckily the power went on right before the second show and we were allowed to exchange our tickets for that show (we had tickets for the 1st show). After that we went to dinner @ Burger King so great fun for all.

On friday my friend Martine came round with her boys and we made some altered mini books with them and cupcakes. Great for the boys very tiring "workshop" for us haha.

Oh yeah and I finally sind up as a member for a wellness company of which I really LOOOOVE the products. As I am usually the tipe of try before you totally get hooked (just like with the items for my shop) I tried a lot of their products and they are really good. If you're interested in learning more about them take a look at the Melaleuca products and if you'd like to try some let me know. As a member I get a discount on their products.

Now I've heard most scrappers are stuck with scrappers block, lost mojo and such, fortunately I'm not one of them. So how are you and you're mojo doing ?

Yes my life is a bit of a rollercoaster now and then, but I'm talking about the real thing here (a small one though).
We went to the Koningin Julianatoren (yes again LOL), but hey the weather was great and it's only opened for a bit longer and instead of a visit to a Zoo, which we usually do together we went here. We had a blast with our holiday pals, thanks for a fun day Yo, Freddie, Charel, Tijmen, Tobias, Henk, Mariska, Jurre & Milan !

Since you've seen plenty of photo's from our last visit I thought these would be fun to share as we didn't go near the rollercoaster last time.....

13 is the magic number

Some things I haven't gotten around to sharing yet and this is the first one :

Michael had a sponsorrun last friday (the 13th) to raise money for a monkeybar of some sorts. He ran 13 laps, we were very proud and made a lot of photo's of course. Still amazes me on how many parents are camera less on these kinds of events. It is usually us, the headmaster or a teacher and 1 or 2 more parents .... Wel we made enough photo's of the other grades to compensate LOL. Here are some pic's to give you an impression .....

Happy Birthday Francine !

Happy 23rd Birthday ;-)

I scrapblifted your "Alsjeblieft" LO, hope you like it !

Even before your mom started Scrapbooking you were trained for the camera. Once we had joked, say cheese while taking your photographs and since then you called out cheese for every photo. Sitting on the queens throne in front of Alice’s curious labyrinth @ Disneyland, it was taking us a little longer to take a decent photo, lots of people kept walking in front of the camera. So after a few tries and you patiently calling out cheese, you started yelling it louder and louder and other tourists were laughing with us … because you looked so cute and were having so much fun yelling cheese from that huge throne!

impressed by an oldie

Been so busy this week trying to get everything organized to present the new dt & a newsletter, update the shop, think up new workshops oh and do some scrapping too LOL. So that's why I didn't post a lot this week.
I should be presenting the girls next week if all goes well ... so stay tuned for that.

Last night I took my mother to a Janis Ian theatreconcert and she had a blast ! (i could tell because when she kept poking an elbow in my side, a sure sign she's having fun & is excited....)

After the concert she came to the lobby to sign cd's & ticket stubs how awesome is that. Never seen prince, lenny or mary j blige do that.... anyhoooooooooooooo this scrapbooker didn't think of bringing her camera (didn't fit in my mini purse) and hey who expected a photo opp. @ a concert ? So I used my mobile (but hey the lighting is just horrible so so is the photo ....) and I will probably use the above photo from internet to scrap about this.

A few things that I thought was so great about the concert were, it brought me back to my childhood (my mother always had music in our house, she was quite the hippie until I was about 12 so Janis Ian and Carol King are no strangers to me ...), she told all kind of stories inbetween the songs and this story is one that touched me in particular, that her voice is still as amazing at 55 as it was when she was in her 20's. I was very impressed !

Love this quote ... # 1

There's a framed poster in the hallway at the school where I work, that makes me smile every time I walk by it :

je begrijpt pas iets helemaal wanneer je het aan je grootmoeder kunt uitleggen - Albert Einstein

translation :

You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother - Albert Einstein.

Found the translation here.
