          Etsy Update - Gnomes, Owls, Enchanted Doors, Silhouettes and More...      Cache   Translate Page      
Just thought I'd share a few recent updates to the shop...


Most recent addition - a Jewelry set of necklace and earrings. 

I found the cutest Gnome House...
 

So I added a pink glass pear to give it a little color and a feminine touch. It's hard to photograph a delicate pink that shows up.  All I can do is assure you it's more pink in person.  *shrug*

 
And what good is a Gnome House without Gnomes?  These gnomes are so darn cute - they stand on their own and everything.  Very detailed.
 

I debated selling them separately, but they are too darn cute not to go together.

 
 
 

I also added some silhouettes to the shop - of course.  But the reason I needed to add a bunch was I had a large order this week - I still need to make new bigger silhouettes, but for now I added these.


So sweet - in my favorite frames.  Funny thing is, no sooner did I put it in the shop then it sold within about 2 hours.  Wow!  So here I am with another set.


 

 
Totally new to the shop:  Owl Earrings!  So cute - hoo hoo. 
 
 
 


 
Available here
 
 
And finally, for now, I added a cool new piece - a Gothic Fairy Door with a beautiful chain of connecting Pearls.  So pretty and romantic!!
 


 

 
Available here
 
 
Please check out my shop for more!!  Have a Good Weekend!
 
 

          Shabby Chic Holiday Decor and Etsy Updates      Cache   Translate Page      
Even as I ready last minute Thanksgiving details, I can't help but turn to the next holiday.  I've been decorating already and, of course, added a few things to my shop.

My little French house...

I swore I'd keep this house for myself, but I can never help putting things up in my shop no matter how much I want it so it is for Sale.  Available in my shop.


I've made plenty of Silhouette ornaments in the past, but the little white tree I had was woefully inadequate to display them on.  I bought a much bigger one to better show them on.  I'm still fiddling with the tree, but here's a first look:

 
I've added a lot of new kinds of ornaments this year - some framed, some paper mache.  Different sizes and shapes, different backgrounds, etc.  It makes for an eclectic mix on one tree, yet rather interesting, too.  I'm selling them in pairs or alone for the most part. 


 
This is the first set of new ornaments I added a few weeks ago to my shop. 
 
They are available HERE.
 
They are Frames that are ornaments - beautiful to see in person. 
 
Check out the details:


 
 They look lovely together or apart.  Add a touch of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy to your tree...


 
 

Or if your favorite Austen novel is Emma...here's the perfect ornament for you!

 
This ornament has Chapter 1 page on one side - you can read the beginning of the novel on it. 
 
Available in my shop.

          New to the Shop: Antique Brass Necklaces and Earrings - Historical Romance and Steampunk Chic      Cache   Translate Page      

Antique Brass Necklaces and Earrings

 
 
New to the shop - I've added some new necklaces and earrings in a beautiful vintage inspired antique brass color. 
 
 

 
I use only genuine antique sheet music in my art and jewelry - each piece is unique.  This pair of earrings were made from a sheet of music from the turn of the century.  They are sealed and preserved under a dome of glass and set in a scalloped base and set into delicate Victorian drop settings. 
 
 
I've added filigree backings to make the back as beautiful as the front.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
New to the shop are some bird charms I'm adding to a few necklaces - some are like this one - a connector charm, which makes it look like the bird is flying to the pendant.
 
 
I love this white key - it's naturally crackled with age - adding vintage charm to the necklace.  So pretty!
 

This necklace is so cute, I really do have to make one for myself. 


 
And the back of the necklace -

 
 
 
I've paired it with a glass top key in sepia tone.  It has darkened naturally over the years - it's a very old key.  The typographical style of the K is simple and striking.  These keys are VERY rare.  I only have the one set so if you want it in your letter you better grab them now.  Convo me if you wish to see if I can make one for you.  This setting is also available in antique silver, gold and in a bronze/black color - now you can have four different colors for any outfit/event!

This necklace has three pieces to the pendant in addition to the key - the Victorian setting, a scalloped base and a filigree backing.  It's a very striking piece.
 
 
Check out the filigree backing:
 
 
 
 
This is just the first update for my Etsy shop -
I'm adding more new items today so I'll update again with more. 


          New to Shop - A Custom order of Jane Austen Silhouette Ornaments      Cache   Translate Page      
Just wanted to post about my latest Custom Order at my Etsy Shop -
 
30 Jane Austen Style Silhouette Ornaments!



The order was for 20 originally, but grew to 30.  They are 10 rectangle French book paper, 10 rectangle Antique Sheet Music paper - 10 round ornaments half and half.  I used all the ladies and gentlemen and children I have that will fit on the ornaments and they are all different front and back - all together I stenciled 60 silhouettes!  Quite a bit of work sanding, painting, papering, stenciling, sealing, drilling holes and then tying ribbon on them all, but the end result is worth it, I think!
 
 
 


This picture and the next two are of the same exact ornaments in the same spots, but flipped over so you can see front and back views.
 



 
If you would like a custom order of silhouette ornaments feel free to convo me at my shop for details and questions.  Prices depend on quantity and other details.

          DeVos opens door to taxpayers funding religious orgs by stopping enforcement of church-state separation rule      Cache   Translate Page      
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has announced she will no longer enforce the provision of federal law that bans religious organizations from being funded with taxpayer dollars for secular projects. DeVos is citing a 2017 Supreme Court decision that ruled a Missouri Lutheran church-run school could not be barred from having taxpayers pay for repaving its playground under a local ordinance that made it ineligible solely due to separation of church and state policies. The Education Secretary, in an official notice to Congress, now appears to be turning that ruling on its head. "The law calls for students in public and private schools to receive 'equitable services,' such as special education, tutoring or mentoring and allows districts to hire contractors to deliver those services," The New York Times explains.
          Bye Bye Love. Wonkagenda For Tues., March 12, 2019      Cache   Translate Page      


Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


There's so much fuckery in Trump's $4.75 trillion budget, we don't have nearly enough time to go through everything. Politico has a list of some of the winners and losers, the former being his golf buddies and Betsy DeVos, and the latter being poor people, the sick, and the elderly (thanks to massive cuts in Medicare and Medicaid previously sold as TrumpCare). WaPo notes that the administration is living in a complete fantasy believing that the economy is doing fine, counter to the analysis from every math geek who's ever used an abacus. Yesterday, OMB Director Russ Vought told reporters that it wasn't actually the Trump tax cuts (for the super rich) that ballooned the national debt, it was Obama. Earlier in the day, Vought appeared on CNBC to bitch and moan about the Mexican-Muslim taco truck invasion of the southern border, arguing that WALL was more important than sick, old, and/or poor people, and stated, "We're tired of being right." US TOO, BUDDY. Meanwhile, the GOP revolt over Trump's border wall has flipped Congress on its head as members consider measures ranging from overriding Trump's national emergency declaration, to limiting the presidential power to declare national emergencies.

In a bigass profile in WaPo, Nancy Pelosi finally said what's been hinted at for two years -- that she doesn't want to impeach Trump "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan ... because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it." Some Democrats pushed back strongly on Pelosi's remarks, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noting Trump met "the Lindsey Graham standard" for impeachment "multiple times." In speaking with Politico, House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings called impeachment a "political process," and added, "You've got to have bipartisanship. Right now you've got 40 something percent of the country pleased, I guess, with what the president's doing. I think Pelosi realizes this."

Dick Cheney ripped Mike Pence a new asshole at a private meeting in Georgia over the weekend at a forum for a conservative think tank, according to a leaked transcript of the event. The war hawk criticized the Trump administration's foreign policy as being more limpwristed than Obama, complaining that Trump's idea to demand protection money from allies "sounded like a new York state real estate deal." Pence responded by reportedly asking, "Who wrote these softball questions?"

In a rare showing of bipartisan rebuke of the Trump administration, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have invited the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to Washington to address a joint session of Congress later this spring. The invite comes as Trump moves to charge US allies protection money to the tune of "cost plus 50."

Massachusetts Democratic Senator and 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren suddenly found her ads calling for Facebook to be broken up taken down by Facebook. Facebook issued a statement saying the ads violated their policy of using its logos in advertising. Though the ads were later restored, they kind of proved Warren's point that Facebook is too goddamn big. Politico is stirring the pot this morning with a story about Warren taking money from Silicon Valley employees and selling her books on Amazon ... over the last decade.

Senators Ed Markey and Josh Hawley say they plan introduce a bill to amend the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The bill would reportedly extend protections of children up to 15-years-old, and bar platforms from targeting ads at kids under 13. Roll Call notes it's unlikely to become a law even though multiple states and the EU have already moved forward with strict data privacy regulations aimed at keeping companies from fiddling with kids' heads. Here's an example of COPPA laws in action.

Democrats have chosen Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for their 2020 nominating convention. In a tweet, the party stated Milwaukee was "more than equipped."

Wayne's World (8/10) Movie CLIP - Alice's History Lesson (1992) HD www.youtube.com

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says her office was "thorough and professional" when it "thoroughly and appropriately" investigated sexual harassment allegations from a female staffer against Gillibrand's longtime driver and military adviser. In a brief scrum with reporters, Gillibrand said she has full confidence about the "professional and thorough" investigation that was now "thorough and complete." He must be a good man, and thorough.

Former Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is headed to Iowa to help state Senate candidate Eric Giddens in a special election while simultaneously reaching out to former Obama people and courting activists. Beto hasn't announced #HesRunning (yet), but political wizards think it's just a matter of time.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams clarified remarks she made at SXSW stating she hadn't decided if #ShesRunning in 2020, and said the possibility was "on the table." Abrams's initial remarks were that she kept a spreadsheet with gigs she wanted, and 2028 would have been the earliest she would run for president.

According to court records, a Roy Moore supporter pleaded the Fifth 65 TIMES when asked if he had tried to bribe the lawyer representing one of Moore's accusers to drop the client and issue a damning statement to Breitbart. What initially started as a defamation suit has grown to engulf Steve Bannon's rightwing shit rag. SCANDAL!

Those rascally radicals in antifa have dug up racist and anti-Semitic chat logs from from Bennet Bressman, the statewide field director for Nebraska's uber rich Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts. The 22-year-old Bressman says the logs, which date back to last year, were from a long time ago and no longer reflect who he is as a person, though screenshots of Bressman's social media accounts show him teaching people about "chad nationalism," joking about running down Black Lives Matter activists with his white car, dropping n-bombs and racial stereotypes, as well as old fashioned gay-hatin'. [Logs]

Current Florida man and former Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage started cold calling radio shows (again) to say those damn dirty Democrats get all their money from the JEEWWZZ, and that Rep. Ilhan Omar "completely vindicated" his long history of hate mongering. [Audio]

As British Prime Minister Theresa May faces the rapidly approaching zero for a "no-deal" Brexit scenario, the EU and UK agreed to a changes over the Irish backstop and permanent customs union. HOWEVER, the EU signaled the changes are by no means an end to negotiations just as a number of British MPs sounded off about their reluctance to support May's deal. If you're confused, don't worry, so is everyone else.

A new UN report says North Korea is cleverly avoiding oil, coal, and weapons sanctions, and hacking foreign banks to make some quick cash -- and that's on top of all the shady weapons testing programs they've quietly started back up. The report even includes photos of North Korean ships disguised as trading vessels illegally transferring energy and materials on the high seas, as well as the regime's smuggling of weapons to Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, possible gold-mining in the Republic of Congo, and supplying Uganda with military training and weapons.

Lawyers for Roger Stone say they "clumsily" tried to tell the court about Roger Stone's book, and that they'd like to "move ahead without further ado," HOWEVER emails from Stone to his publisher show Stone bitching about a gag order interfering with his book sales, arguing for more money, and demanding fewer copies of the book be printed.

The Senate Intel Committee met with Simona Mangiante, the wife of George Papadopoulos, to ask about her old boss, ALLEGED Russian spy Joseph Mifsud. Mangiante told WaPo that she was "happy to provide information," emphatically adding, "Definitely not because I am a Russian spy." [No, she said that!]

Tucker Carlson refused to apologize for sexist and misogynist comments made to a shock jock's radio show unearthed by Media Matters. Tucker likened the campaign to have him and Jeanine Pirro "You're Fired" to a "mob" in a defiant monologue, and stated he planned to "fight it" while crying on the shoulder of Sean Hannity. Media Matters later released MORE damning audio of Tucker where he claims "white men" were responsible for "creating civilization," waxes philosophical about THE BLACKNESS of the Obamas, and whines that Iraqi people aren't "human beings" because they "don't use toilet paper or forks," and that they're actually, "semiliterate primitive monkeys," Shortly after Tucker's monologue, Fox News host Brit Hume tweeted, "Doing well is the best revenge," and linked to Tucker's TV ratings. Meanwhile, Variety's Brian Steinberg noted Tucker didn't have many ads during his show, and that's not a good sign (for him).

Two of the most prominent NRA board members tell the New York Times that NRATV's hard-right turn into fear mongering of apocalyptic race riots, ALLEGED grift, and shady Russian fuckery has forced them to reconsider what the hell they're all doing. Apparently Dana Loesch putting Thomas the Tank in a KKK hood was a little too much, even for gun fetishists chumming red meat.

After the Westboro Baptist Church decided to take a field trip to the Virginia state capitol and protest the state's first and only openly transgender lawmaker, Del. Danica Roem, the lead singer of heavy metal band Lamb of God organized a counter-protest with free kazoos. Several hundred people turned out in support of Roem, who herself fronts a local heavy metal band, and chased out the hate group out within 30 minutes.

          DEBT FREE (And Staying That Way)      Cache   Translate Page      


This is a recent picture of Mr. LH and I on our 20th anniversary. We celebrated it with a rare night out, but instead of it being just the two of us, we took the whole family. The Boy and The Girl (a.k.a. "The Pickles") came along because this was also a family celebration. We were celebrating being DEBT FREE!

That's right! We did it! We paid off our last debt in our debt snowball! A big, ugly student loan.

Full disclosure...our debt snowball did NOT include our house. That comes later in the process.

Our debt-free journey has been a long one. We started it waaaay back in 2012 and went full force for about three years as we followed the Dave Ramsey baby steps word for word. It was incredible how much we were able to pay off!

Baby Step 1: Put $1,000 into an Emergency Fund DONE!
Baby Step 2: Pay off all debt from smallest to largest using the Debt Snowball DONE!
Baby Step 3: Save 3 to 6 months of EXPENSES
Baby Step 4: Invest 15% of household income for retirement
Baby Step 5: Save for college for children
Baby Step 6: Pay off home early
Baby Step 7: Build wealth and give!

This book changed our lives!
In 2015 we had to move because our landlord was selling the house we were renting. And even though we weren't quite ready, we were able to buy a house because our debt-to-income ratio had dramatically improved. We tried to buy the one we were renting but it didn't work out.

After buying our house, we weren't quite as intense in our debt paying as before. After all, the driving force behind paying off our debt was buying a house. And while we still wanted to get out of debt, we now had the house.

We still didn't use credit cards, we still did a budget, and we still paid extra on the debt. In fact, we only had one big debt left...that student loan. We had been paying on it a LONG time and it didn't seem to be going anywhere. But we weren't REALLY hitting it hard with everything we had, either, so of course it wasn't going to go away quickly. We painted rooms, bought some furniture, did some landscaping, went on vacation, etc. We did a lot of those things you're NOT supposed to do while you are tacking your debt snowball.

Then in 2018, almost three years after moving into our new house, it seemed like everything started to go downhill. Murphy's Law. "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong." Dave Ramsey would say "Murphy moved in with us." But truthfully, we kind of invited Murphy to stay a while.

Mr. LH and I took a vacation to Washington while The Pickles visited family in Florida.


We could have stayed home instead and enjoyed a stay-cation. But we didn't.

I loved visiting Washington and I am glad we went, but even after carefully watching every penny on that trip, I can't help but think of the money we spent that SHOULD have gone towards debt. So yes, we did contribute to the problem (although we did NOT accrue more debt from the trip).

2018 also brought some dark time to our family. A death in the family meant we needed to travel across the country on short notice. When something tragic happens, you don't want to sit there worrying about money. But when you have debt, you worry. How will you be able to make everything work?

We couldn't afford the price of last minute airfare for all of us and leaving some of us behind was out of the question. We would just have to drive. But we had to replace a power steering pump on the car first.

A few months later, a huge hailstorm hit. Two inch hail. Maybe larger.


Hail is common here, but this was the biggest hail I had ever experienced.

With the hailstorm came the need for a roof replacement. We needed to pay the deductible for that.

The timing belt went out on the car and did a ton of damage (the same car we just had the power steering pump replaced on). Thousands and thousands of dollar signs went flying out the window.

In the fall, we got news that The Pickles BOTH needed their wisdom teeth removed. We scheduled it during Christmas break so they would have plenty of time to recover.

The thought of another setback made me feel nauseous. We were so close to being debt free but after all of this, I felt broker than I had in a very very long time. We cut our modest Christmas budget in HALF so we could use the funds to take care of some of these issues (and you know, we still had a great Christmas).

Regret sank in as I remembered the vacations and those 3 years of lackadaisical debt-paying we did. If we had just kept up the momentum it would have been paid off by 2017...maybe even sooner!

In early January of this year, we took our cars in for oil changes and received another laundry list of needed repairs. For what it's worth, our cars are old...2001 and 2004 year models, and we don't usually have this much stuff to do to them. It just all coincidentally happened to hit at once.

That was IT. Murphy needed to move out. The debt HAD TO GO. We didn't have much left, but it was going to GO AWAY.

Every dime extra that we had laying around went toward the debt. I avoided going out to the grocery store and instead made some interesting creations from what we had on hand in our freezers and pantry. I avoided shopping of any kind. I spent my time freelancing or working on my Etsy shops trying to earn a little extra. Any tax return we received would be dedicated to debt and car repairs.

For motivation, I borrowed Chris Hogan's book, Retire Inspired, from the library (and realized we HAD to get moving on our retirement savings quickly).

I listened to Dave Ramsey's show while I worked and listened to people do their debt-free screams.

I crunched numbers to see how much we could save this year once we were debt free if we attacked a savings plan as intensely as we were now attacking the last of our debt.

And all of those actions combined to FINALLY push us across the finish line to FREEDOM.

The student loan now has a balance of ZERO. The car repairs have been DONE.

Our dishwasher even broke the same week but I was able to just shrug it off and order the replacement part to fix it myself without too many days in between of hand washing (we go through a LOT of dishes at our house).

If you have debt but haven't started this journey yet, do it. If you think you can't do it for whatever reason, change your thinking. It may take some time, but slow progress is still progress.

Netflix’s modern reboot of One Day at a Time is truly crafty. Just when you think you've signed up for a lighthearted family sitcom, it hits you with poignant takes on social issues. 

In its third season, which dropped on February 8, series co-developers Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce apply this winning formula to consent, toxic masculinity, sexual harassment, female and queer empowerment through the lenses of generation and gender.

With the rise of #MeToo over the last year, several television shows have chimed in to address these themes in their own way, including Younger, Will & Grace, GLOW, and BoJack Horseman. But ODAAT stands out because it offers a unique point of view, showing how a regular family can and should deal with these issues.

In the new season's second episode, titled "Outside," ODAAT involves all the family members in this vital discussion about consent. They dive deep into their individual experiences related to harassment, which culminates into a remarkably honest discussion. Almost the entire episode takes place in the living room of the Alvarez home as each member gets to unpack their viewpoint. 

The biggest takeaway from the episode is just how big of a teachable moment this is for Alex. ODAAT sends a strong message about educating boys from a very young age about the importance of consent and an enthusiastic yes.

Paramount Boss Unveils Diversity Initiative To Boost Inclusion In Film Slate

While the recent USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative reported promising results in its latest study of the 100 top grossing films of 2018 and their representation of females and racial/ethnic groups in starring roles, the industry consensus is that more work can be done when it comes to advocating for more inclusion and representation of diversity in film.

This week Paramount Pictures Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos announced that “as part of the development and green light process, our productions will be required to complete a plan designed to enhance access and opportunities for groups historically underrepresented in the media industry. Special attention will be paid to our storylines, our talent in front of and behind the camera, our vendors and our shooting locations.

Elizabeth the Stalwart

by digby



I'm not endorseing anyone at this point because it's way, way, way, way too early and I have no idea where this race will be when it comes time to cast my vote. Also, I don't like endorsing in presidential primaries because life is short and social media is a hellscape at such times. Suffice to say that I hope the voters will collectively choose a progressive who can dispatch the orange monster in the White House and I'll be looking at qualities that convince me they can do that. I suspect there is more than one ...

Having said that, I will admit that I am a big fan of Elizabeth Warren and if the California primary were held today, I would likely vote for her for president. I have been a fan for years. She is a sophisticated and nuanced political thinker and I find her progressivism to be compelling, persuasive and practical.

Anyway, I do hope that whatever happens, people will be open minded and give her a listen before they decide. Here's a good place to start:



There are at least two Elizabeth Warrens — Bankruptcy Law Liz and Michelob Ultra Betsy.

Bankruptcy Law Liz has more sweeping policy ideas than you have friends. She reads two books a week, which happens to be the number of books the median American reads in six months. She was a Harvard professor. She calls herself a “data nerd.”

Michelob Ultra Betsy is an Okie by birth. She says “dangit” and “golly” and “boo-hoo.” She puts an “h” before words that start with “w,” as in “hwhite.” She sounds like people who are probably unlikely to vote for her. She is a populist. And while Liz reads serious tomes, Betsy is currently on the fifth book in the “Victor the Assassin” series.

This past weekend, I got to interview both of these figures, who together make up Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts and presidential hopeful. We had breakfast together in New York on Friday. Sometime during our breakfast, Senator Warren’s campaign publicly dropped her latest track, which is a plan to break up Amazon, Google, and Facebook, as part of a larger proposal to intensify antitrust scrutiny of Big Tech.

Then, on Saturday, I interviewed Warren onstage at the Texas Tribune’s daylong political chat fest at South by Southwest in Austin, a business and technology conference. It is the kind of place where it is safe to refer to yourself as an influencer. As in, that is your job. Like your actual job. Not everyone who attends South by Southwest currently works for a monopoly, but not a lot people seem opposed to their startup becoming one. Which is to say, proposing to break up the big tech companies and then flying to South by Southwest is sort of equivalent to Nietzche doing a “God is Dead” book panel at the Vatican.

I asked those in the audience who work for the tech giants she proposes to break up to stand. “Can you explain to them why you want to break up the place they work?”, I asked. A smattering of people rose.

Her answer surprised me. “Because it will be a lot more fun to work there,” she said. It was as if she was making a startup pitch to the startup-pitch people: “It’s like Google meets an ax.” She wanted to distinguish the billionaire monopolist owners and investors from the rank and file of Big Tech, whom she said would benefit from more competitive markets. It offered a clue to Warren’s philosophy — she is a reformer, not a revolutionary. And it revealed something about the culture of our age of capital, which requires even its most strident critics to seek to persuade those whose clout is being challenged that it’s good for them.

We talked about a recurring theme of her own life and her work studying other people: the way in which people mistakenly, in her view, blame themselves for problems that are systemic, structural, engineered through policy. We feel bad that we can’t keep to our diets, not realizing what Big Food is doing behind our backs. We feel bad that we can’t shake our iPhone addiction, not realizing how Big Tech has thousands of people investigating our psyches to render our willpower defenseless against its creations. If there is a motif of Warren’s life — first as a young woman making her way in the world, let go from her job teaching special-needs children after her first year because she got pregnant; then as a scholar of bankruptcy; and now as a policy maker — it is a quest to help Americans grasp that what they might interpret to be their fault is often a more complex story about systems they cannot see and powerful interests they can’t easily fight alone.

We talked about race. I asked her, coming off the well-worn controversy about her ancestry (when she took a much-criticized DNA test to prove she had a small percentage of Native American blood), what she has learned from that episode and from her life more generally about being white — in a moment in our history when whiteness is losing its place as the default setting of Americanness and as yet trying to find its new place in shifting sands. I would have liked to hear even more about her answer: “The differences that protect us are often unseen.” I think she was, in her way, pushing back against something you often hear from white people challenged about racism: saying you don’t see race is hardly proof that racism is not at work.

She embraces Marie Kondo’s tidying approach. She doesn’t embrace democratic socialism. She is a capitalist who celebrates markets that are fair and well-policed (“Markets without rules are theft,” she told me), if not a capitalist that capitalists invite to dinner. When I asked her if she agreed with the statement by Dan Riffle, a senior policy advisor to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York, that “every billionaire is a policy failure” — or with the argument by Ocasio-Cortez herself that a society that allows there to be billionaires is immoral — Warren again surprised me. She gave a long answer about how it depends on the context. If there were a society that had in place the policies she advocates for — universal childcare, accessible education, well-regulated markets — and that society produced billionaires, good for them. No “Abolish Billionaires” for Warren. She is down with billionaires, as long as they are Norwegian.

And she can be quite funny. When I asked her whether she would vote to impeach President Trump today, based on what she already knows, she deferred to the coming Mueller report. Which prompted this from me: “I feel Mueller’s like this guy who keeps taking you to a weekend away, and you think he’s going to propose every weekend, and it’s like, Is this guy ever…? He puts his hand in his pocket, and you think the ring is definitely in the pocket. And then there’s no ring.”

“That said,” Senator Warren replied after letting me process my complicated feelings about the special counsel, “You should remember he has produced 34 indictments and guilty pleas already. I don’t know about you, but I never had a boyfriend that good.”

          Dankbaar voor een gezellige Kitsch in de Keet      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds vorige week wilde ik gezellig bloggen over Kitsch in de Keet bij Keetje van Lien, maar door alle stress rond mijn vader die maandag plotseling in het ziekenhuis was opgenomen had ik behoefte aan rust. 




De rust is enigszins wedergekeerd hoor, dus nu maak ik eens even tijd voor een blogpost over die gezellige zaterdag bij Lien in de tuin, in de keet ;). Ik blogde er wel hier al over. 


Ik heb net ook pas een foto gemaakt van mijn aanwinsten, ik kocht wat leuke spulletjes in de keet. Yihaa ik kon de tegel scoren die ik zo graag wilde en al bij Lien in een blogpost had gezien (foto hieronder is van Lien). 


Ik ging nog op zoek naar die heerlijk toepasselijke spreuk voor bij mijn Tante Betsy blog 'You are never fully dresses without a smile', die vond ik niet maar wel zo'n leuk meisje met haar regenlaarsjes en paraplu. Ja zo maar een echte Lien!
Ook de fles en de broche zijn door Lien zelf gemaakt, leuk!


Bij de bijna Free Library zocht ik een boek uit en nam natuurlijk een boekenlegger van Mirjam mee. 


We vierden de verjaardag van MiM, mijn allereerste blogdinnetje (we hadden tegelijkertijd een engelenblog) 


en natuurlijk nam ik toepasselijke kadootjes mee, ik pimpte nog op het allerlaatste moment een engel. 


En maakte ook nog een ketting voor bij mijn allernieuwste Tante Betsy jurk. Met rozenkwarts en tsja hoe die blauwe edelsteen nu alweer heet?? gecombineerd met knalroze kralen en een hart is het helemaal mijn stijl, een vrolijke ketting met extra power. 


Oh ja Merula was er ook, zo leuk om haar ook te ontmoeten...
Ik kocht bij haar die leuke zoen hanger...had eigenlijk nog wel een knalroze Maria hanger willen hebben...of had ze die helemaal niet hihi. Oh ja ik kocht ook nog een pilea plantje...het geld was voor een goed doel. 



Evenals de drie kadootjes, grabbelton presentjes, die ik kocht...ik voelde me ook jarig met die prachtig ingepakte kado's :).  
Mirjam maakte deze Tante Betsy foto van mij... Ik grabbelde dat geweldig leuke schilderijtje 'Capture Life', een heerlijke douchecrème van Therme (al lekker aan het gebruiken) en een artistieke rugzak...


Oh ja natuurlijk genoot ik ook van een stukje gebak...oh ik had nog wel veel meer gebak willen proeven...hier een foto van Mirjam (zag hem net op het blog van Lien) ik sta op de achtergrond te kwebbelen ;). 
...maar kreeg die middag een telefoontje van mijn broer dat mijn vader onwel was geworden. Hij had die week last van torenhoge suiker... Dus manlief gebeld en binnen een kwartier vertrokken, de dames zo goed en zo kwaad als ik kon goededag gezegd en naar Maastricht getogen. Uiteindelijk is hij dus 's maandags pas opgenomen...nu is het weer rustig op dat front en wordt hij beter in de gaten gehouden. 


Ik verheug me al op volgend jaar voor weer een Kitsch in de Keet! Maar voor nu dankbaar dat ik erbij mocht zijn en heerlijk heb genoten van leuke gesprekken met lieve dames. 

Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

          Dankbare Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey girls ik ben vandaag weer gaan werken, na anderhalve week ziek te zijn geweest. Dankbaar dat ik eindelijk opgeknapt ben en me weer wat beter begin te voelen.
Ik heb al een aantal keren gehad dat ik dacht nu voel ik me beter en even erna kakte ik toch weer helemaal in, voelde ik me toch nog steeds beroerd, maar nu niet meer dus. Ben wel nog flink aan het hoesten, maar voel me zoveel beter. 


Morgen met dochterlief naar Maastricht en dan zie ik mijn moeder ook weer, dus daar verheug ik me op. Verder geen uitgebreide blogpost want ik heb verder niks mee gemaakt en ben ook niet creatief geweest...heb dagenlang in bed gelegen. 
Ik ga nu lekker quality time met manlief hebben, lekker filmpje kijken op HBO of Netflix. Oh ja ik heb nog wat waar ik ook dankbaar voor ben (natuurlijk is er nog zoveel meer ;)), ik ben vandaag bij de diëtiste geweest en ben nu in totaal 5 kg afgevallen sinds vorig jaar juni. Ik heb even een terugval gehad in de wintermaanden, maar heb het weer hersteld. Nee girls ik volg geen dieet, maar ben gewoon anders gaan eten :). Voor mij geen strafkamp, ik eet nog steeds regelmatig een stukje chocolade of een lekker stuk vlaai/taart maar niet meer een halve reep of drie stukken taart (okay soms nog wel, maar mijn lichaam geeft dan vanzelf aan dat ik dat niet had moeten doen). 


Binnenkort heb ik weer een leuke winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog, ik mocht namelijk een review doen voor Bandelettes. Als je net zoals ik last hebt van schurende bovenbenen dan is dit een mooie en sexy oplossing. Ik heb de kanten versie en de Unisex versie getest en ben zeer tevreden over allebei. Heerlijk om weer eens met blote benen onder mijn Tante Betsy jurkje te kunnen. Ik heb jarenlang geen blote benen meer onder een jurkje of rok kunnen hebben met mooi weer. 
Dus hou vooral mijn Tante Betsy blog in de gaten, deze actie gaat deze week nog de lucht in ;). 



Lots of love from Susan

          Dankbare Tante Betsy Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      

Ja lieverds ik kom jullie toch weer eens even lastig vallen met een Tante Betsy blogpost. Ik zag namelijk vandaag opeens dat ik al 8 maanden aan het bloggen ben op mijn Tante Betsy blog en zoals de meesten van jullie wel weten begon het allemaal hier. 


Mijn Tante Betsy verslaving begon toen Moos op Facebook de winactie deelde van Tante Betsy, ik ging eens kijken welke jurkjes het dan wel waren wat je kon winnen en was meteen verkocht. Vooral toen ik mijn eerste jurkjes had aangeschaft en ze mijn Goddelijke lijf zo mooi benadrukken, alsof ze voor me gemaakt zijn...tsja toen ging ik los, ik kocht er op marktplaats, ik kocht er bij Tante Betsy. En ik deelde ze allemaal hier en maakte jullie gek ;). 
En al snel moest ik hier openlijk toegeven; 'ik ben Susan en ik ben verslaafd aan Tante Betsy jurkjes'. 


Ik heb diverse blogsters die me volgden en ook anderen aangestoken met het Tante Betsy virus. 
Sinds dat ik blog op mijn Tante Betsy blog; 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses heb ik nog meer dames aangestoken, oops :). 
Ik heb heel wat jurkjeszusjes (van een Facebook jurkjes groep) aangestoken, een dame is net zoals mij echt verslaafd en draagt bijna alleen nog maar Tante Betsy jurken. 
Er was een hele groep dames die op de jurkjesdag speciaal voor mij (en voor Tante Betsy maar natuurlijk ook voor zichzelf) een Tante Betsy jurk hadden aangedaan om met zijn allen op de foto te gaan. 
Kijk mij alvast helemaal klaar staan met de taart die Tante speciaal voor ons liet maken, terwijl iedereen zich nog op aan het stellen was ;). 


Girls bedankt voor jullie lieve en leuke reacties, ik ben nog steeds zo dankbaar dat ik dit creatieve blog in 2011 startte, maar vooral dankbaar voor alle leuke contacten die ik heb opgedaan sinds dat ik ben gaan bloggen. Zonder jullie zou dit allemaal niet mogelijk zijn geweest!
Ondertussen kan ik wel zeggen dat ik een fashion blogger ben geworden whahaha, ja soms gaat je leven een bepaalde kant op die je nooit voor jezelf had voorzien, maar waar ik wel heel dankbaar en blij om ben.
Hopelijk kan ik volgende week weer eens wat creatiefs delen. Ik blijf mijn best doen om hier toch iedere week iets van me te laten horen, maar nu is het hoog tijd om te gaan slapen en zorgen dat ik beter wordt. Dikke dankjewel knuffels!



Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

Hey lieverds zo toch nog even een dankbare dinsdag blogpost maken.
Afgelopen weekend hebben wij de Internationale Mini Meeting gehad, deze keer heel kortbij in Lommel en ik ga jullie er een kleine impressie van geven.
Allereerst een link naar een filmpje http://nieuws.vtm.be/moet-je-zien/190870-2700-minis-lommel-te-bewonderen
Wel terug komen hè?!


Iedere dag togen wij naar Lommel in onze mini cooper (alleen heen en terug mét aanhanger ;)), normaal verblijven we op het festival terrein maar we besloten deze keer om thuis te slapen. Vooral uit gezondheidsredenen want dan krijg ik tenminste genoeg slaap, ik verhuis tegenwoordig wel vaker 's nachts naar een andere slaapkamer als ik midden in de nacht wakker wordt van een snurkende man ;). 


Iedere dag koos ik een leuke Tante Betsy jurk uit en na een dag op sneakers te zijn gegaan, koos ik voor laarzen. Het was namelijk enorm stoffig en zanderig en laarzen kun je tenminste poetsen. Op de mooiere dagen had ik ook clogs bij me of liep ik zelfs op blote voeten ;). 


Het is altijd leuk om weer bekenden tegen te komen en te spreken. De meesten zien we alleen op de Internationale Mini meeting die ieder jaar in een ander land gehouden wordt (binnen Europa) en een keer op de vijf jaar in Engeland. Volgend jaar is Ierland aan de beurt en 2018 Portugal en dan is 2019 weer een jubileum jaar (60 jaar mini) en dit zal in Bristol gevierd worden. We weten nu dus al waar we de komende jaren op vakantie heen zullen gaan ;). 


Okay wat sfeer impressies, leuke foto's voor de wolkenclub leden/liefhebbers...

          Oops drie weken verder...      Cache   Translate Page      

Hey lieverds het is alweer drie weken geleden dat ik hier een blogpost plaatste. Ik heb wel dagelijks een blogpost geplaatst op mijn Tante Betsy blog, maar hier kwam het er twee weken geleden niet van en vorige week ben ik het eenvoudigweg vergeten. En ook nu dinsdag is het me niet gelukt, terwijl ik wel al een gedeelte van deze blogpost typte, sorry!


Ik ben dan ook erg druk met op en neer naar Maastricht gaan, eerst was mijn moeder aan de beurt met een operatie waardoor ik een aantal keer op bezoek ben geweest. Op Koningsdag ging dochterlief ook mee. Mijn moeder is inmiddels weer thuis en hersteld rustig in haar eigen tempo. 


Maar ondertussen ging mijn vader voor een hart katherisatie naar het ziekenhuis en moest daar blijven, hij heeft inmiddels een open hart operatie ondergaan (nieuwe hartklep en een aantal omleidingen) en na een viertal dagen op de intensive care gelegen te hebben is hij sinds een week weer terug op de verpleegafdeling. 
Ik ben natuurlijk heel dankbaar dat alles bergopwaarts gaat en hopelijk zal hij straks meer energie gaan hebben. Ik maakte een postzegel engeltje voor hem. 


Sinds zondag hebben wij drie logées in huis, we hebben deze week (dit weekend) namelijk dé Internationale Mini Meeting in België. Deze keer heel kort bij huis, een uurtje rijden dus komen we lekker thuis slapen. 
Lijkt het je leuk om heel veel classic mini coopers te zien dan kun je als dagbezoeker het festival terrein bezoeken te Lommel (BE) op zaterdag en zondag. 
http://www.imm2016.be/daytickets.html


Ik heb jullie nog niet de foto's van de jeans pashokjesgordijnen laten zien die ik maakte op mijn werk voor een nieuw te openen kringloopwinkel (met medewerking van de werkcoaches, een gordijn zette ik zelf in elkaar) en natuurlijk wil ik die even showen. 
We gingen met onze afdeling die ochtend, heerlijk ontbijten bij Kasteel Vaalsbroek en bezochten erna de RD4 te Margraten, om te gaan kijken hoe onze spulletjes erbij lagen, waar mijn collega's met vereende krachten aan gewerkt hebben. 

Ze zouden een speciale kast hebben ervoor, ik verwachte een of andere barok kast hihi, maar het is meer een presentatie rek...wel leuk onze teckels, uiltjes en jeanskussens lagen er mooi uitgestald. 


Oh wat zien mijn oog als ik door de foto's scroll, we zijn natuurlijk nog naar Elfia geweest door de bedrijven door. Het was weer heel leuk om zoveel prachtige creaties te zien, er was ook wel een aantal keer regen (we hebben gelukkig iedere keer kunnen schuilen) verder was het soms ook prachtig weer. Maar zijn al vroeg naar huis gegaan omdat we het toch wel gehad hadden het was die dag namelijk bar koud (6-8 graden herinner ik me nu weer brrr). Ik had er dan ook mijn outfit op aangepast en geen te blote outfit aangedaan maar het was nog steeds erg koud waardoor we minder ervan genoten hebben als anders. Maar er liepen genoeg mensen die dat wel hadden gedaan die moeten het enorm koud hebben gehad. 


Inmiddels al een heel aantal keer in Maastricht geweest, en daardoor ook een paar keer het nuttige met het aangename gecombineerd en genoten van mijn prachtige geboortestad waar ik toch zo'n 38 jaar gewoond heb. Met onze logées ook nog afgelopen maandag de stad bezocht en dit gecombineerd met een kort bezoekje aan mijn vader. 

Oh ja girls enkele van jullie die mijn Tante Betsy blog volgen hebben wellicht vast al gezien dat ik een supergave winactie heb. Deze keer geef ik een kado bon van €70 weg te besteden bij Tante Betsy haar webshop. Het vraagt wel wat creativiteit van jouw kant als je een Tante Betsy wannabee bent, ik vraag namelijk om een foto inzending ;). http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/2016/05/tante-betsy-give-away-wednesday.html

          Me time op dankbare dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      

Hey lieverds opeens realiseer ik me dat ik nog geen blogpost heb gemaakt voor dit blog, maar ik lig inmiddels al in bed en wil lekker gaan afschakelen bij een leuke film. Dus kies voor mezelf, voor Me-time...nou ja manlief komt er ook zo aan hoor ;). 


Ik las pas ergens iets over dankbaar zijn voor jezelf, dankbaar zijn voor wie je bent, hoever je al gekomen bent.
Dus bij deze ben ik dankbaar voor wie ik ben. 


De volgende keer weer een langere blogpost lieverds! Je kunt natuurlijk altijd gezellig op mijn Tante Betsy blog gaan meelezen. Dikke knuffels!

Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

          Dankbaar voor vanalles Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds zo eens even tijd maken voor een dankbare dinsdag blogpost, want er is natuurlijk zoveel om dankbaar voor te zijn. 
Vandaag creatief mogen zijn op mijn werk, wat is dat toch een zegen dat zo'n leuke baan op mijn pad is gekomen waar je creatief kunt zijn in de baas zijn tijd :). 
Vandaag de pashokjes gordijnen afgemaakt, ik mocht nog aan de slag met overhemden om een leuke binnenkant te maken. Mijn werkcoaches vonden het anders geen mooi visitekaartje. 


Ook dankbaar dat ik zo'n geweldige dochter heb, waar ik vandaag eventjes op bezoek ben geweest...met Koningsdag zie ik haar weer...dus even een dikke knuffel gaan geven. We zijn ook zaterdag samen even een paar uurtjes op bezoek geweest bij mijn moeder in het ziekenhuis, dankbaar dat de operatie voorspoedig is verlopen. Niks ernstigs hoor, maar het herstel zal nog een paar weken duren dus ga ik morgen weer op bezoek (niet in het ziekenhuis ;)). 



Dankbaar ook voor het mooie nieuwe jurkje van Tante Betsy, ze stuurde me dress Birdie Black en hij is zo gaaf! Echt een superleuke jurk, hij is er ook nog met een lichtblauwe ondergrond en een grijze ondergrond, maar die zwarte trok mij het meeste. 


En vorige week waren manlief en ik negen jaar getrouwd, dankbaar dat we het zo fijn samen hebben. Ik deelde vorige week op onze huwelijksdag een paar collages van ons samen. Ik krijg nog altijd een big smile als ik een berichtje krijg van manlief dat hij onderweg naar huis is, dat betekent dat ik mag gaan koken hihi. Nu hoeft hij niet ver te reizen hoor, hij werkt kortbij, maar toch word ik altijd blij van zijn berichtjes en natuurlijk ook van heel veel andere dingen. 


Zo ik ga er vandoor, alhoewel ik ga eerst nog foto's bij elkaar zoeken. Tante Betsy Birdie Black foto check, foto's met manlief check, foto's van het werk check...nog even kijken naar wat foto's samen met dochterlief en met mijn moeder...en ik heb toch nog een foto van gisteren in mijn Tante Betsy jurk creatief geweest met hars en edelstenen ;).

          Creatief met spijkerbroeken      Cache   Translate Page      
Dag lieverds het is weer dinsdag, tijd om een blogpost te maken. Eigenlijk heb ik geen puf meer, maar zoveel heb ik nu toch weer niet te vertellen dus maak en deel ik met liefde een blogpost. 
Ik wil toch ook op dit creatieve blog actief blijven, al is het maar een keer per week. 
Het dagelijks bloggen op mijn Tante Betsy blog neemt natuurlijk toch heel wat tijd in beslag, je hoort me niet klagen hoor, ik vind het heel leuk om te doen en ik maak jullie niet meer zo knettergek met mijn blogposts over mijn Tante Betsy jurkjesverslaving ;). 
Oops ik ben alweer af aan het dwalen met mijn gekwebbel hihihi. Ik heb vandaag by the way mijn allereerste Tante Betsy jurk aan :D. 


Ik was vandaag op mijn werk weer in de weer met spijkerbroeken en verwerkte die tot een grote lap stof van zo'n meter bij twee meter, dit worden pashokjes gordijnen van een nieuw te openen winkel. 
Als je nu raad voor welke winkel het is, niet zo heel moeilijk hoor, win je niks :p whahaha, maar verzoek ik je de naam van die winkel niet in je reactie te vermelden want dan is het verrassingseffect weg ;). 


Ik vroeg namelijk aan onze stagaire of ze even een foto van me wilde maken en daarbij show ik ook meteen ons kado voor de opening van de winkel, dus pssstt. Niet komend weekend, maar het weekend erop is de opening. 
Het is een memo cq opbergbord dat ik maakte van allemaal stukken jeans.
Ik geniet altijd van het lekker creatief bezig zijn, recykleren, iets nieuws maken van afgedankte jeans/kleding. 


Zo lieverds nu ga ik lekker afschakelen, oh ja ik ga hier ook nog even een foto delen van mijn Tante Betsy meets Halsoverkop outfit. 
Weet je nog dat ik eens bij Pantalone in Eindhoven mijn pistolenjurk van Halsoverkop kocht? Inmiddels is dit jurk drie van dit merk en er zijn er nog twee onderweg (via MP). 
Ik draag eigenlijk altijd alleen maar Tante Betsy jurkjes, maar Halsoverkop vind ik zelf ook wel een heel leuk merk en zo af en toe draag ik die ook.

          Daar ben ik weer op Dankbare Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds ik ben de afgelopen week niet echt creatief geweest, ben ik me net aan het bedenken. 
Kreeg wel gisteren tijdens een lezing op een spirituele beurs, waar ik samen met manlief heen ging, te horen dat ik wat vaker creatief mag gaan zijn, dat ik mensen blij maak met mijn creaties...van niets iets maken...


Toch maar eens tijd vrij maken om lekker creatief te zijn...oh ja heb wel nog pas een ketting gemaakt, eenzelfde ketting als die Sandra van Beautiful Boardwalk gewonnen heeft. Alleen dan geen rode kralen erin verwerkt, maar met lila kralen en andere roze kralen, je ziet hem rechtsbeneden in de collage. Sandra ging dankbaar op de foto voor mijn Tante Betsy blog met de door haar gewonnen ketting :). En de nieuwe eigenaresse is er ook happy mee. 


Morgen lekker weer eens quality time met dochterlief...samen shoppen in Aken...tsja ik en shoppen...ik koop tegenwoordig niet meer zo snel iets van kleding in een stenen winkel of het moet al bij Pantalone in Eindhoven zijn, waar ze Tante Betsy jurkjes verkopen. 
Ik zou wel graag eens voor (Sanita) klompen/Sandalen gaan kijken, maar volgens mij is er geen winkel die ze verkoopt in Aken. Och ja alle tijd voor dochterlief om haar soort shops af te lopen...met natuurlijk af en toe een stop om lekker bij te tanken en te genieten van een Duits broodje. De foto van mij en dochterlief maakte manlief een paar weken geleden toen ze meeging naar een Trödelmarkt :). 


Op het werk was ik vandaag wel weer creatief met recykleren van jeans, maar ik ben helemaal vergeten een foto te maken. Ik ben een kado aan het maken, een gift voor een open dag waar we allemaal hard aan het werk voor zijn. Hopelijk kan ik snel verder met het pashokjes gordijn(en), bij de industriële naaimachine is iets ontwricht, er moet een monteur naar komen kijken. 
Maar ik ga zekers foto's met jullie delen, 16 april is de opening van de winkel waar ze voor bestemd zijn...ik heb manlief al gevraagd om er heen te gaan. 


Vandaag maakte ik weer eens een wolkenfoto, ik was even in de stad, pakketdienst aan het spelen ;). 
Ik zag vandaag deze Puch brommer staan, zo'n plaatje met die stenen muur...en de Pancratiuskerk op de achtergrond. 


En mijn Tante Betsy was hing ook weer eens buiten :). Heerlijk toch dat die lekker kon droogwaaien in de zon met best een stevig windje. 


Oh girls ik heb weer een leuke winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog staan, je kunt een etui van De Kunstboer winnen, je hoeft alleen volger te zijn en aan te geven waarom je hem graag zou willen winnen. Wel alleen de afgebeelde etui, de rood blauwe, Power Gym etui. 
Kom gerust mee doen! http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/2016/03/de-kunstboer-etui-give-away-friday.html

          Dankbare Knuffel Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      

Dag lieverds het is vandaag weer dankbare dinsdag en tegenwoordig probeer ik altijd op dinsdag hier op mijn creatief blog een blogpost te delen. 
Ik ben nu een beetje leeg, wilde eigenlijk gaan relaxen, maar wil toch even een blogpost maken.
Vorige week ontving ik een stel lieverds van Angelique, ik was toevallig weer eens op bezoek bij Angelique, volgens mij door Essebes haar dankbare dinsdag blogpost en ging natuurlijk ook even gezellig in haar winkeltje snuffelen. http://mwlbyangelique.blogspot.nl/p/haakwerk-te-koop.html
Mijn oog zag daar Draak Daantje en het toeval wil dat ik draakjes heel leuk vind, dus die lieverd die wilde ik heel graag thuis hebben. 
 

Iets verderop zag ik Zebra Zoey en ook die lieverd riep mijn naam. Ik mailde Angelique en zo gingen de twee lieverds op weg naar het verre zuiden, het was even iets langer reizen via Kiala, maar het is hun uitermate goed bevallen. 


En oh wat zijn ze mooiii, Draak Daantje heeft meteen mijn hart gestolen en Zebra Zoey waar ik achteraf nog even over twijfelde is zo mooiii. 
En weet je wat leuk is...manlief zei meteen dat die leuk was voor in de Mini Cooper, dus Zebra Zoey ging meteen mee op reis door het heuvelland achter op de hoedenplank. 
Nee lieverds geen gezellige onderweg foto's, manlief sjeest door het heuvelland, het is al een kunst dat hij gezellig is blijven zitten. 


En draak Daantje hangt gezellig aan mijn Kunstboer tas 'Parrots' te bungelen en gaat gezellig overal mee naar toe waar ik ook heen ga ;). 
Zo lieverds ik ga ervandoor, dikke dankbare knuffels voor mijn blogdinnetjes, zo leuk al die contacten. Laten we maar lekker met ons allen liefde verspreiden en dikke knuffels. Eentje maakte ik vandaag helemaal happy als winnares van de winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog :).

          Dankbaar voor mijn creatieve werkplek      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds ik mocht afgelopen donderdag en vrijdag weer eens heerlijk creatief op het werk zijn. 
Ik merk dat ik daar toch wel extra energie van krijg, natuurlijk is het leuk om te werken aan de collecties voor Mode met een Missie, maar lekker recykleren vind ik stiekem het allerleukste. 


We hebben een opdracht om gordijnen te maken voor pashokjes en mijn handen jeukten al om er mee aan de slag te gaan, maar werkcoach Mariëtta bleek er al mee bezig te zijn kreeg ik eerder te horen. 
Maar wat bleek Mariëtta vond het leuk om er samen met mij mee aan de slag te gaan, yihaaa!
Ik had het namelijk even gehad met werken voor Mode met een Missie, normaal hoef ik maar een item te maken van een model, maar omdat er een paar zieken waren en dames zijn gestopt met werken heb ik aan drie oh nee vier broeken gewerkt, twee van pieppp stof, dus ik was dolblij met deze creatieve opdracht. 


Het is de bedoeling om de broeken in zijn geheel terug te laten komen in de gordijnen voor de pashokjes. Een gordijn is ver af, er komt nog een finishing touch aan hoor, want de band van een jeansbroek die ik aan de zijkant naaide om hem af te werken ziet er toch wel heel leuk uit. 
Dus wordt vervolgd en hopelijk ook met foto's hoe de gordijnen er uit eindelijk bij komen te hangen. 
Zo lieverds ik ga er weer vandoor, vandaag wel aan een nieuw Mode met een Missie kledingstuk begonnen een grijze linnen jurk, maar die lijkt me wel heel leuk om te maken. 
Wie weet deel ik daar ook eens foto's van. 


Oh voordat ik het vergeet, ik was ook thuis weer eens creatief en maakte een ketting, die ik weg geef op mijn Tante Betsy blog http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/2016/03/365-days-of-happy-tante-betsy-dresses.html

          Creatief met kant      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds ik weet niet of jullie hem al gezien hebben op mijn Tante Betsy blog, de nieuwste paspop jurk creatie...tsja hoe noem je zoiets nou?! 


Met kerst heet het paspop kerstboom...
Inmiddels is ze al omgetoverd geweest tot carnavals paspop en nu tot voorjaars paspop...hoor graag van jullie of er een betere naam voor is (ben even te moe om erop te gaan googlen ;)). 


In ieder geval ben ik vrijdag lekker aan de slag geweest om er wat leuks van te maken. Ze wordt nog verder gepimpd met bloemen, maar voor nu verkeerd ze nog in romantische staat. 


Ik drapeerde een opengeknipte dekbedovertrek om de groene stof die als basis diende van de paspop kerstboom, zodat het groen niet meer zichtbaar was. 
Daarna ging ik aan de slag met kanten gordijnen, alles is vast gezet met kopspelden dus niks aan genaaid. 
En als laatste nog boven en beneden een prachtige strook kant, hihihi ja ik vind het dan prachtig hè :). 


Helemaal mijn ding lekker aan de slag met kant, daar word ik vrolijk van. 
Ik maakte ook nog eens een leuke collage om aan de jurkjeszusjes te laten zien wat ik nog allemaal al eens van kant of met kant heb gemaakt. 
Ik heb nog meer gemaakt realiseerde ik me later...gecombineerd met jeans :). 


Sorry girls dat het een beetje onsamenhangend is, ik ben moe dus ga er ook een einde aan breien. 
Oh ja kaartje voor Elfia Haarzuilens is alweer in the pocket, 23 en 24 april is het weer zover...we gaan deze keer maar een dagje ;).

          Genoten van de jurkjesdag samen met de jurkjeszusjes      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds er is weer een week voorbij gevlogen, die helemaal in het teken van Tante Betsy en de jurkjesdag stond. 
Ik had een meeting met de jurkjeszusjes van een besloten Facebookgroep afgelopen zaterdag en wat was het een feestje. 
Veel mensen vinden zoiets spannend, maar ik draai mijn hand daar niet voor om zo'n zaal vol met 'vreemde' vrouwen. 


Alhoewel ik heb wel mega slecht geslapen, maar dat kwam meer omdat ik me afvroeg of er wel ook jurkjeszusjes zouden zijn die een Tante Betsy jurk/outfit zouden aan doen of meenemen...nergens voor nodig gezien het grote aantal vrouwen hierboven op de foto ;). 
Tante Betsy sponserde namelijk ook mee, alsmede andere merken, de organiserende dames hadden dat zelf allemaal geregeld. 


Ik had wel al met sponsor Sokken-online contact gehad over de jurkjesdag, ik nam dan ook een tas vol met Apollo panty's mee. 
Die zouden verloot worden met de tombola, de dames hadden een paar prachtige hoofdprijzen, diverse rokjes van verschillende merken én een Tante Betsy jurk van stenen winkel/webwinkel So Much. 
Maar de 36 Apollo panty's waren ook een feestje, zoveel gelukkige winnaressen, zo leuk!  


Verder waren er diverse stands, sieraden, make up, kledingmerk Halsoverkop en nog drie paar creatieve stands van vrouwen die zelf jurkjes, rokjes, omslagdoeken en sieraden maken. Eigenlijk ben ik daar zelf nauwelijks aan toe gekomen, ik heb me wat afgekwebbeld met de jurkjeszusjes, heb nog gekeken naar jurkjes die te ruil of te koop waren...och ik heb gewoon met volle teugen genoten!
Het was een heerlijk feest vol herkenning, lekkers en zelfs mooie gezang...want we hadden een jarige jet onder ons, wow wat klonk dat prachtig die 'lang zal ze leven'.


Oh ja ik had ook nog een verrassing bij me van Tante Betsy, een heuse Tante Betsy taart verzorgd door gefelicitaart.nl. 


Ik wist wel dat er een verrassing zou komen op vrijdag...dat las en hoorde ik woensdag toen een andere verrassing kwam, een jurk uit een oude collectie die echt superrr is en de nieuwste hoodie, Hoodie Black Fit, oh prachtig!...maar een taart dat had ik zelf niet kunnen verzinnen ;). Hij was prachtig én heerlijk! Jammie!


Zo girls, nog even een fotoowtje van de inhoud van mijn Goodiebag, een tas (een kaart en een pen...die zag ik nu net pas in de keuken liggen whahaha) van King Louie, kortingsbon van 10% van Tante Betsy (niet op de foto), een chocolaatje (zit al in mijn buik), och gewoon een heleboel leuks van de aanwezige stands. Het roze armbandje kocht ik bij een jurkjeszusje én de Apollo panty won ik :D. En oh het groene eendje kreeg ik van een lief jurkjeszusje :).

          Creatieve Dankbare Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      

Vandaag hadden we van het werk uit weer een workshop en high tea bij Huis en sfeer in Landgraaf. 
Net als vorig jaar was alles weer in de puntjes verzorgd door eigenaresse Jeanette. We kregen allerlei heerlijks voorgeschoteld, oh wat hebben we weer gesmuld. 


Net als de vorige keer was er besloten om de high tea in twee gedeeltes te doen, maar deze keer werd het zoete gedeelte toch maar op de knutseltafel gezet...ik was nog volop bezig alsook een aantal andere collega's. 


We hadden zelf stoffen meegenomen van het werk, maar al het andere leuks werd door Huis en Sfeer verzorgd. 
Normaal wordt dat allemaal door haar verzorgd maar wij werken nu eenmaal op een naaiafdeling en wilden net wat anders als anders, ook zaten we met een budget en onze werkcoach is goede vrienden met Jeanette dus zo kwamen we tot deze leuke workshop. 
We hebben genoten en ik weet wel bijna zeker dat dit een terugkomende activiteit is een leuke workshop met high tea bij Huis en Sfeer. 


Ik was eigenlijk van plan om met heel veel kleur en bloemen te gaan werken, maar dat koperkleurige stofje sprak me aan en ja met kant werken is toch ook wel mijn ding. 
Vanzelf ontstond deze creatie waar ik erg trots op ben. Alle stofjes van op het werk dus, maar alle leuke frutsels, lintjes en veren van Huis en Sfeer. 
Heerlijk toch zo'n werkdag!


Oh ja vorige week zette ik een poesje in elkaar als afscheidskado voor collega Carla die deze week haar laatste werkweek bij ons maakt. Het was de allereerste keer dat ik die naaide en ik had hem op een ochtend in elkaar en gevuld. De afwerking, de snorharen en de tenen verzorgde mijn collega Mike. Op andere dagen werk ik met haar samen en het leek ons het beste dat zij hem toch niet zou zien. 


Ze had namelijk al laten ontvallen dat ze graag een poesje, een kat, als afscheidskado wilde. 
Om haar te foppen kreeg ze ook een nekrol, weer door een ander collegaatje genaaid van stof met katjes erop. Waar ze ook helemaal happy mee is. 


Ik schreef er net ook al over op mijn Tante Betsy blog: http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.com/2016/02/creative-tante-betsy-tuesday.html

Hey girls vandaag is het weer dankbare dinsdag, dankbaar voor alle leuke lieve valentijnskaarten. Ik voelde me bijna jarig met zoveel leuke post, ik kreeg kaartjes van Es (en Oscar), Dinah, Tinie, Christel, Esther en Pippa, Lien, Nana, Helmi en Joke.
Thanks girls het was een feestje om zulke leuke post te ontvangen. Dankjewel Essebes ook weer voor de postzegels :). 
Ik maakte een collage van en deelde hem zaterdag al op mijn Tante Betsy blog met blogpost 'Happy Saturday'. 


Ik stuurde zelf zo'n 50 kaarten met zoenen, hebben jullie dat ook gedaan...iedere keer opnieuw je lippen gestift...een tweede keer zoenen lukte nog wel, ik heb me suf gezoend. Ik had een hele lijst met familie, real life vriendinnen en natuurlijk ook een lijst met blogdames die ik een kaartje heb gestuurd. 


Zondag was de uitslag van mijn Tante Betsy kadobon winactie, ook voor mij is het altijd spannend wie de winnares gaat zijn. Zoveel lieve leuke Tante Betsy girls en wannabees die ik het van harte gun, maar er kan maar een winnares zijn en hoe leuk als het een actieve volgster is. 
Dinah won de kadobon twv €50, die ze nog even bewaard totdat de nieuwe voorjaars/zomercollectie uit komt. Er komen heel veel leuke jurkjes aan, maar ook leuke rokjes, tops en vestjes, het wordt weer een feestje en op de jurkjeszusjes groep heerst al keuzestress, want we hebben al gespiekt. Maar we moeten nog even geduld hebben met z'n allen. 


Jullie mogen natuurlijk ook even meegenieten van Dinah's inzending...het is dus niet dat je kunt winnen met de leukste inzending, maar die inzending is wel een voorwaarde. Zoals jullie kunnen zien heeft ze er wel lol mee beleefd. Ook bloggirls Sandra, Tinie, Neeltje, Es, Mirjam, Paddy en Patricia hebben plezier beleefd aan hun inzendingen. 


Vandaag kwam trouwens nog een kaartje van mijn eerste blogdinnetje MiM, een engelenkaartje. MiM en ik hadden allebei tegelijkertijd een engelenblog en zo hebben we ons gevonden. Gelukkig komt ze ook naar de Kitsch in de Keet en Kerst in de Keet bij Lien, zodat we elkaar toch nog eens zien.
En onlangs realiseerde ik me dat ik Mirjam van Kaza Maria/Mirjam downunder al eens eerder gezien heb op de blogsters meeting bij Essebes, ik zag haar op de groepsfoto staan. 
Mims zoon staat by the way op de fotoinzending van Mirjam ;)


Ik ben vandaag nog creatief geweest op mijn werk, maar helemaal vergeten een foto te maken. So blonde... En samen met een collegaatje hebben we achter in het magazijn gezocht naar stofjes enzo om creatief mee te gaan zijn als we volgende week een workshop hebben en aan de slag gaan met een krans. En we gaan dan ook met z'n allen genieten van een heerlijke High Tea. Ik verheug me er al op! De foto hieronder is van zithoek in de gang richting magazijn, er komen nog meer kussens op de banken. Er staan afbeeldingen op van mijnwerkers, het pand was vroeger de mijn school. 


En dan 's zaterdags naar Utrecht naar de jurkjes zusjes meeting, zal wel lachen gieren brullen worden met de dames van de Facebook jurkjes groep. Ik heb een heel aantal jurkjeszusjes aangestoken met het Tante Betsy virus, dus hoop ook nog een leuke Tante Betsy groepsfoto te kunnen maken. 
Oh ja helemaal vergeten, ik plakte nog een kaart voor de postbode op de voordeur. Onze postbode is een lieve dame die vorig jaar genoten heeft van het bezorgen van die leuke valentijnkaartjes. We zouden niet thuis zijn als ze kwam, dus dan haar zo verrassen. 


Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

Hey lieverds hebben jullie het al gezien of gehoord? Het is weer tijd om te zoenen. Net zoals vorig jaar heeft de PostNL een aktie dat je een valentijnskaart kunt versturen met een lippenstift zoen als postzegel. 
Vorig jaar heb ik me suf gezoend en ik beloof dat ik dat dit jaar ook weer ga doen; http://365dagencreatief.blogspot.nl/2015/02/ik-heb-me-suf-gezoend.html

          Carnaval en een jurkjes meeting in aantocht      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds nee ik ben jullie niet vergeten op dankbare dinsdag, maar de dag vloog om gisteren en toen ik klaar was met mijn blogpost voor mijn Tante Betsy blog, was het tijd om quality time met manlief te besteden die de laatste tijd vaker klaagt dat ik veel online bezig ben. Niet dat hij zelf geen uren Facebook't of online surft hoor hihihi, maar ik ben toch heel wat uurtjes met mijn Tante Betsy blog bezig en alles wat daarbij kijken komt. 


Eind deze maand heb ik ook een leuke meeting met de dames van de jurkjes Facebook groep in Utrecht en verheug me daar op. Het is een gezellige community van lieve vrolijke vrouwen, net zoals jullie girls, dus ga ik daar met vreugde naar toe. 
Er is me al eens gevraagd door jullie girls voor een Tante Betsy ontmoeting en tsja ik ben zelf niet van de organisatie afdeling, moet goed op mijn energieniveau letten en ik woon daarbij ook nog eens helemaal in het zuiden van het land, dus zie ik die zelf er niet zo 123 van komen...
Maar voor mij is dit ook een soort van Tante Betsy meeting, ik heb inmiddels namelijk al heel wat dames aangestoken met het Tante Betsy virus ;). 


Ik mocht gisteren even tijd besteden aan de roodkapjes cape voor dochterlief, ja tegenwoordig weet ze me wel te vinden ;). Ik heb hem gemaakt zoals in het youtube filmpje stond welke ze me stuurde, maar ben niet enthousiast. Ik vind dat ie wat meer afwerking nodig heeft, dus eens kijken hoe ik dat ga oplossen. Vanavond komt ze kijken en passen...hij is ook nog veel te lang en eigenlijk vind ze de capuchon te groot...dus er is nog werk aan de winkel. 


Vorige week heb ik op mijn werk hard aan de carnavalsjas opdracht gewerkt, de jas kreeg ik mooi op tijd af. En ik neem aan dat de opdrachtgeefster happy is met de jas, maar dat hoor ik nog wel ;). De afwerking met de blauwe 'satijn' stof was het meeste werk, maar ik ben trots op het resultaat. Geen paspop voor handen om er een mooie foto van te maken. Die dient tegenwoordig als versiersel in de entree van ons gebouw. 
Na carnaval maken we er weer wat anders leuks van :). 


Zo girls verder ben ik niet meer creatief bezig geweest, wel wil ik jullie van harte uitnodigen om mee te doen met mijn Tante Betsy Kadobon Winactie. Je kunt kans maken op een kadobon ter waarde van €50 te besteden bij Tante Betsy in de webshop. Klik en lees de voorwaarden: http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/2016/01/tante-betsy-saturday-give-away.html
Ook als Tante Betsy wannabee is er heus wel wat leuks van te maken...zie mijn what's okay blogpost van een paar dagen eerder!
De lente/zomercollectie komt er binnenkort aan en ziet er veelbelovend uit. Ik maakte deze collage waar je alvast een sneakpeak krijgt...en ja dat is Tante Betsy herself in de collage...ze is zelf niet van de fleurige outfits hihi ;). 


Ik ga eens marktplaatsen, ik heb dringend budget nodig voor de aankomende collectie ;) en heb gelukkig nog een kast vol kleding liggen en hangen wat ik allemaal niet meer aan doe.

          Eindelijk weer een Dankbare Dinsdag blogpost      Cache   Translate Page      
Oh lieverds sorry hoor het is niet dat ik jullie vergeten ben, maar de dagen vliegen hier voorbij. Vorige week dinsdag kwam het er maar niet van, manlief vroeg thuis vanwege het koude weer en daarna ziek thuis (hij is weer aan het werk, maar is stiekem weer ziek aan het worden) dus ik kreeg niks gedaan. 


Op het werk ben ik wel met een carnavalsjas bezig, een opdracht die ik mag naaien. Altijd leuk om te doen...niet dat ik die helemaal zelfstandig aan het maken ben hoor. Marleen onze werkcoach heeft het patroon getekend, stof geknipt en vertelt mij stap voor stap hoe ik hem moet naaien. De jas zelf zat op een ochtend in elkaar, maar hij is nog niet af...de afwerking duurt langer, maar is wel leuk om te doen. 
Eindresultaat ga ik zeker aan jullie showen. 
Oh terwijl ik foto's zocht zag ik opeens de foto's van de paspop, voorheen kerstboompaspop, nu carnavalspaspop. Ik mocht die versieren...nou ja ik had de vrije hand, heb wel de basis samen gemaakt met onze werkcoach, het korset hebben we gewoon omgedraaid...en samen met een collagaatje heb ik de poncho's eraan bevestigd, de ballonnen (opgeblazen door onze mannelijke collega's) en de 'ketting'. 


Gisteren was ik weer eens creatief onder het afdak in het zonnetje, met het maken van een speelgoedkrans, hij is ook nog niet af...ik heb nog wat klein spul nodig om hem op te vullen. Heerlijk genoten om weer eens lekker in het zonnetje buiten te zitten. 


Ik ga eens terug spieken bij mijn foto's wat ik nog had willen delen...
Oh ja ik kreeg een mailtje van Joke die me vroeg hoe ik aan het patroon van het kerstkaarten engeltje kwam, ik maakte een deal, ik stuurde haar een engeltje (en eentje in delen) en ik kreeg van haar een kaartje. En wat grappig ze maakte een leuk engeltje voor me, maar dan op een kaart geplakt...ook heel leuk!


Als het goed is komt er weer heel snel een Tante Betsy kadobon winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog 365 days of happy Tante Betsy dresses, jullie zijn van harte welkom om mee te doen...ik ben me aan het bedenken om er een andere draai aan te geven zodat de drempel wat minder hoog is voor dames die nog geen Tante Betsy jurkje/rokje/vestje hebben...oh opeens krijg ik een nog leuker idee!
Dus hou mijn blog in de gaten ; http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/


En oh misschien is dit wel een leuke voor jullie om mee te doen, Femke van Urban Hippies heeft een leuke ontwerpwedstrijd, je eigen hip pocket ontwerpen...nou ja zelf een kleur kiezen (die er nog niet is) en een leuk borduursel voor erop...ik zoek even de link erbij...oh ja ze had ook over mij geschreven :D. 
En wie weet win jij wel je eigen hip pocket, ik vind ze reuze handig op mijn jurkjes, maar ook handig op (Zand Amsterdam) rokjes. Klik; http://www.urbanhippies.nl/blog/take-part/ontwerp-je-hippocket-wedstrijd/
http://www.urbanhippies.nl/blog/socialmedia/blogs/ is de link waar je Femke haar blogpost over mij kunt lezen :). 


Okay girls ik ga lekker relaxen, ben al minstens twee tot drie uur bezig met blogposts maken, eerst mijn dagelijkse Tante Betsy blogpost (en die delen op Instagram en mijn Facebook pagina) en aan deze ;). Dikke dankjewel knuffels dat jullie me toch nog altijd vinden!

Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

          Mode met een Missie jubileum jurk      Cache   Translate Page      

Sorry lieverds dat jullie mijn blogpost van vorige week hebben gemist, de energie ontbreekt me op dit moment om ook maar iets te doen. 
Maar er is wel iets wat ik met jullie wil delen. Ik blogde er al eens eerder over...
Weten jullie nog dat ik op mijn werk een gedeelte van de jubileumjurk van Mode met een Missie heb gemaakt? http://365dagencreatief.blogspot.nl/2015/10/geefmaand-november-in-aankomst.html dit was de blogpost. Mijn collegaatjes Melanie en Carla werkten aan de bloemen mouw. 


Maar ik heb nog steeds niet het eindresultaat laten zien waar onze afdeling ook aan mee werkte. Ik kwam de foto's pas weer in mijn mail tegen. Dit is het eindresultaat geworden!


En een close up met het kanten gedeelte...ja super trots dat ik hier een onderdeel van mocht maken :D. 


Op 13 november 2015 werd het 10-jarig jubileum van Mode met een Missie gevierd met een mode show. 
En ter ere van 10 jaar jubileum bestaat de jubileum jurk uit 10 verschillende onderdelen en technieken. Ik kom hem niet zo 123 tegen online...wel een filmpje over de mode show http://www.modemeteenmissie.nl/nieuws/


En een close up van de achterkant/zijkant met de mouw die mijn collegaatjes maakten. 


Zo lieverds ik hou het ook even hierbij...oh ik kan wel nog even de laatste lappendeken showen die ik in opdracht maakte op mijn werk, 99 lapjes gingen er in. Ik deelde deze collage vandaag ook op mijn Tante Betsy blog. 



Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

          Laatste Dankbare Dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds vandaag is dit de laatste dankbare dinsdag blogpost en ik ben me echt heel hard aan het bedenken wat ik met jullie ga delen vandaag. 
De afgelopen kerstdagen hebben we lekker helemaal niks gedaan, dus heb daardoor ook niet echt wat te delen. Vanaf kerstavond heerlijk geluierd in bed :). Dankbaar voor de qualitytime met manlief. 


Ik was wel weer creatief in de keuken en maakte twee quiches à la Susan, het recept deelde ik al eens hier ;). http://365dagencreatief.blogspot.com/2013/02/quiche-la-susan.html
Allebei dezelfde basis, een groentemix van prei, uien, courgette en champignons. Maar in eentje deed ik wortelen erbij en de andere broccoli. Dochterlief en haar vriend hebben er samen met mij op kerstavond van gesmuld. We hebben met z'n vieren een hele gezellige kerstavond gehad, ook iets om heel dankbaar voor te zijn. 


Ik deed mezelf Sendra laarzen kado en kocht ook nog twee Tante Betsy jurkjes in de uitverkoop. Om mijn rekening enigzins te herstellen heb ik wel als een gek een paar jurkjes verkocht ;). Dankbaar voor de mooie deals. 


Ik kreeg nog van een aantal lieverds leuke kerstpost, maar daar heb ik even geen foto's van. Dankjewel aan alle lieverds waar ik kerstkaartjes en lieve post van kreeg. Er vlogen van mijn kant ook heel wat engeltjes de deur uit...hierboven bij Sandra in de boom. 


Sorry girls dit is niet echt een gezellige kwebbelblogpost, manlief wil film kijken en ik wil toch vandaag een blogpost hier delen en niet weer pas morgen. Morgen komt er weer een winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog ;). http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/
Daar blog ik wel dagelijks...ik mocht pas een winactie doen van sponsor Sokken-online.nl en vandaag 'sprak' ik Ambela van Ambela Factory http://ambelafactory.nl/ en die gaat eens nadenken over een leuke winactie op mijn Tante Betsy blog. Ze heeft nu eentje op Facebook! Check it out!
Ik bestelde ooit eens bij Ambela mijn brandweer rode omslagdoek, de groene omslagdoek liet ik onlangs door iemand via Markplaats voor me maken/haken ;). 


Dankjewel lieverds dat jullie me nog steeds volgen en gezellige berichtjes achterlaten. Dikke dankjewel knuffels!

          Kerstgroetjes van Susan en verrassingspost      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds her en der kreeg ik al te horen...lezen...dat mijn verrassingspost goed is aangekomen. 
Ik verstuurde dit jaar weer engeltjes naar een aantal blogsters, maar een aantal dames kregen er ook nog een extra kaartje bij (had ik tijdens de Geefmaand November willen versturen ;)) of soms nog een extra engeltje, ik volgde gewoon lekker mijn gevoel. 
En natuurlijk had ik beloofd dat er een aantal dames verrassingspost zouden krijgen, ik schreef tien namen op en nummerde ze. De nummertjes schreef ik op een blaadje en trok er drie uit. 
Esther van Pippa's Hus kreeg verrassingspost, Christel van Houtendraad en Esther van Espiratie. 


Ik stuurde ook nog naar jurkjes vriendin Petra leuke post, het beloofde jurkje voor dochter Marit en nog wat ander leuks. 


Ik zag opeens de kerstboom paspop voorbij komen tussen mijn afbeeldingen, die heb ik hier nog niet gedeeld. Nee girls die heb ik niet thuis staan, die staat bij de receptie op mijn werk, vlak bij onze afdeling. Ik mocht het corset naaien, mijn collega's deden de rest (ik was die week ziek thuis).
 

Oh girls ik ben een beetje leeg, waarover te bloggen?
Oh ja ik deelde net mijn outfit op m'n Tante Betsy blog, een jurk uit een oudere collectie...maar eigenlijk gaat het om de quiches die ik maakte. Eentje met wortelen en eentje met broccoli, verder zit er ook nog gekookte aardappel in, een groentemix van uien, prei, courgette en champignons. Ooit deelde ik het recept à la Susan ;). 
http://365dagencreatief.blogspot.com/2013/02/quiche-la-susan.html


En gisteren deelde ik een creatieve foto, ik ben weer bezig aan een lappendeken in opdracht. Volgend jaar maak ik hem af ;). Morgen nog kerstontbijt en dan lekker een weekje vrij. 


Lieverds hele fijne feestdagen gewenst! Het zal niet voor iedereen allemaal zo feestelijk zijn, dierbaren worden gemist...overleden dierbaren, maar ook dierbaren waar geen contact mee is...bij ons is dat laatste het geval. Manlief is naar mijn idee altijd een beetje grumpy, ik neem aan dat hij zijn kids mist. Ja girls jammergenoeg is er nog steeds geen contact...ook al woont zijn dochter bovenaan in de straat, het is zoals het is. Tsja dat krijg je met gescheiden gezinnen...gelukkig komt dochterlief samen met haar vriend morgen gezellig op bezoek, samen de All you need is love kerstspecial kijken en lekkere quiche eten. Verder vieren wij niks en genieten lekker met ons tweetjes van quality time en kijken we eindeloos films ;). Dikke kerstknuffels van Susan

          Morgen ben ik er weer ;)      Cache   Translate Page      

Hey lieverds morgen maak ik tijd voor een blogpost, manlief wil graag quality time en ik wil graag lekker afschakelen. Ik ben net een dik uur bezig geweest met een blogpost voor mijn Tante Betsy blog. 
De verrassingspost is al onderweg en wie weet zelfs wel al ontvangen. 
Het zijn geen grote pakketjes geworden, ja ik verraste drie dames. Ik schreef de namen op een blaadje, zelfs een paar extra en schreef er nummers voor. De nummertjes gingen in een doosje en ik trok drie nummertjes. Toevallig had ik het adres van alle drie de dames...oh nee van eentje niet...die vroeg ik gewoon...rond de kersttijd kan dat ;). 
Morgen meer daarover...dikke knuffels van Susan



          Dankbaar! Al 4 jaar Blogger!      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds zo ik heb net mijn dagelijkse Tante Betsy blogpost gemaakt en hup verder aan een blogpost voor mijn creatief blog. 
Morgen is het alweer 4 jaar geleden dat ik begon met bloggen en nog geen enkel moment spijt gehad. 
786 berichten, straks 787, in 4 jaar tijd! 
278697 pageviews en 237 volgers via blogger, 303 volgers via Bloglovin. Thanks girls!


Ik hou van die dubbele nummers, ik zocht ze even op (Angel Numbers 101 app van Doreen Virtue). 
787 : You’re “on a roll,” and everything is blossoming for you right now, especially in the areas of career and finances. This is a great time to begin new projects, ask for a promotion, and pursue other new career-related endeavors.
303 : God and the ascended masters have heard and answered your prayers.
En meteen mooie boodschappen van de engelen :). Ja zelfs op mijn engelenblog heb ik na lange afwezigheid weer eens een bericht gedeeld. 


En ja ik ben 'on a roll'...ik realiseerde me onlangs dat ik Fashion Blogger ben geworden. Wie had dat ooit gedacht?! Ik niet hoor. 
Net zoals ik nooit gedacht had dat ik hardop zou durven te zeggen dat ik creatief ben. Ja vroeger dacht ik dat ik dat niet was. Zo kun je veranderen door de jaren heen en kun je wegen inslaan waar je nooit van gedacht had dat die op je pad zouden komen. 
Ik blog hier al lang geen 365 dagen meer, maar probeer nu wel wekelijks op dinsdag wat van me te laten horen. 


Ik wil jullie bedanken voor jullie leuke en lieve reacties. Jullie maken het zo leuk om te bloggen. Zoveel lieverds door de jaren heen leren kennen. Een paar jaar geleden nog een hele gezellige meeting gehad bij Essebes thuis op de Tuinderij. Dames die inmiddels niet meer bloggen staan op de foto, gelukkig zie ik nog wel eens wat van ze op Facebook of Instagram. 
Ja best veel dames zijn gestopt met hun blog, maar ik ga gewoon lekker door hoor. En gelukkig hebben we nog Kitsch in de Keet en Kerst in de Keet bij Lien ;). 


Nu dus ook Fashion blogger met mijn Tante Betsy blog, ik heb jullie hier bijna een jaar lang gek gemaakt met mijn Tante Betsy verslaving...mijn Tante Betsy virus. 
Meerdere dames zijn door mij aangestoken, ik ga me er niet voor verontschuldigen want de dames in kwestie zijn volgens mij stuk voor stuk helemaal happy met hun Tante Betsy jurkjes/rokjes ;). 
Binnenkort is er weer een Tante Betsy winactie (kadobon te besteden bij Tante Betsy haar webshop)...en nog eentje...ik mag namelijk ook van mijn sponsor Sokken-online.nl panty's gaan weggeven. 
Dus hou mijn Tante Betsy blog http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.com/ in de gaten, nog leuker wordt volger...ik kan daar nog wel wat volgers gebruiken :). Heb er pas 12, maar wel al 14876 pageviews en 83 berichten! Volgen via Bloglovin kan natuurlijk ook of via Facebook (172 likes) en Instagram (206 volgers). 


Maar okay terug naar creatief zijn, ik lag de afgelopen dagen...vandaag ook nog...in bed. Maar ik heb wel tussendoor wat engeltjes geknipt om als kerstkaarten te gaan versturen. Ben flink verkouden geweest en oververmoeid en hoop deze week nog het werk te kunnen hervatten. 


Ik wil hier ook een leuke weggever gaan doen ter ere van 4 jaar bloggen, lijkt het je wat?! Wat het wordt weet ik nog niet. Wie weet verstuur ik wel verschillende dingen naar verschillende mensen. Dat laat ik gewoon lekker aan mijn gevoel over. Ben je wel in voor een verrassing of voor zo'n kerstengeltje. Meld het dan even hier!
Allright girls ik ga eens foto's zoeken voor bij de tekst. Dikke dankjewel knuffels! Volgende week dinsdagavond meld ik me en kun je lezen wie wat gewonnen of inmiddels al gekregen heeft. 


Warme creatieve groetjes van Susan

          Creatieve dankbare dinsdag      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey lieverds ik probeer nu toch om iedere week op dinsdag een blogpost te maken. Ik kan niet beloven of dat altijd gaat lukken, maar ik ga mijn best doen zodat jullie weten dat hier iedere dinsdagavond een blogpost is. 


Als jullie mijn Tante Betsy blog volgen en/of mijn Instagram account, hebben jullie wellicht mijn #themorethemerrier blogposts zien langskomen. 
Ik deelde mijn Tante Betsy jurken verzameling, mijn laarzen, mijn kettingen, mijn orakelkaartensets en last but not least mijn Maria beelden. De foto's kun je op mijn Tante Betsy blog gaan bekijken http://365daysofhappytantebetsydresses.blogspot.nl/ of op Instagram https://instagram.com/365happytantebetsydresses/
Brigitte van 'Home is where the Dachshund is' kwam op Instagram met de 5 dagen #themorethemerrier challenge en na een foto gezien te hebben van Brigitte haar kussens en Esther haar engeltjes dacht ik dat ik die challenge ook wel kon aannemen ;). 


Gisteren heb ik eindelijk eens wat engeltjes gemaakt van gerecyclede kerstkaarten. Het blijft leuk om te doen, om ze samen te stellen. Ik heb nog een hele zak met kerstkaarten liggen die ik kreeg, maar gisteren kon ik die opeens niet meer vinden. Maar daardoor kon ik vleugeltjes bij lijfjes zoeken en eraan plakken. 
Ik heb ze net eens even uitgespreid over de vloer, niet de mooiste achtergrond en niet de beste kwaliteit foto, maar so be it. Ik vind het wel leuk om ze even met jullie te delen. 


Vorige week ben ik lekker door gegaan met de geefmaand, ik gaf een jurkje weg aan een dame van de besloten jurkjes Facebook groep en deed er een engeltje bij, hoop dat de dame er steun aan heeft.
Ze ontving de jurk vandaag en is er helemaal happy mee.  
Ik gaf ook wat tips, zorgde dat een dame die een paar roze laarzen zocht terecht kwam bij iemand die een paar weg deed. 
Maar ik kreeg ook een jurkje van Sandra, oh het is echt een heerlijk jurkje, ben er heel blij mee. 


Op het werk maakte ik vandaag de lappendeken af die ik in opdracht van een klant gemaakt heb. 
Nog geen af foto, maar ik maakte wel deze collage voor mijn blogpost vandaag 'Creative Girls Tuesday'. 
Ik ben inmiddels al weer begonnen met nieuwe lapjes snijden, ze wil er nog graag eentje. Maar nu met grijs, zwart en wit. 


Oh ja collegaatjes maakten een tijd geleden een stel poesjes, katten 'moeten' we ze noemen, poesjes naaien...tsja... Ik vergat ze te delen, dus nu eens even de foto erbij zoeken ;). 


Zo lieverds dat was het weer, morgen lekker quality time met dochterlief, we gaan naar Maastricht voor tandartsbezoek, maar combineren het met een paar uurtjes shoppen. 
Dikke dankjewel knuffels voor jullie reacties, leuk dat jullie me toch nog steeds weten te vinden.

          Simplifying my virtual footprint      Cache   Translate Page      



Yesterday, I shut down my flickr account. I've been a member since time immemorial but haven't posted a picture there in years. 500px, that's where it's at! - or so I thought for a while. I shut down my account there too. Sure, there's lots of fine nudes on the site (remarkably many actually...), but in the end, the place felt so high-polish and post-processed, I didn't feel at home any more.
In two weeks, my Etsy account will go too. I had high hopes when I opened up my shop last year. While I sold quite a few vintage cameras, my home-made prints - the whole reason for me starting on Etsy - proved not desirable. In the end, there are a few reasons why the shop flopped. Some of them are my fault, others have to do with me living in Belgium. In any case, it is closing. For now, you can still get a few of my last cameras for a low price (I'm saving up for an espresso machine to fuel my writing ;-)).
Finally, the last victim of my deep cleanse is going to be Blogger. 365 layers of Jonathan is going the way of disco and the dinosaur and I will be moving to a new home on the web.
Here
I am not withdrawing from the web. I love the internet though it works addictive on me. In any case, wiping out your virtual footprint is suicide in a visual profession such as photography. What I want to do, is change the scattered prints I've been leaving everywhere for one deeper, more profound imprint. And this not only applies for the web. I've given a lot of thought on specializing my work. Choosing is losing and right now, I really want to start making choices so I'll be able to loose what has to go and grow in whatever it will be that remains. I hope.
Too often, I find myself disappointed with and disconnected from my scattered personal work in and of the ether. I am making a concerted effort towards simplicity and clarity by scaling down and achieving more focus. All commercial work will remain on our site. All my personal work, ideas, updates, prints and others, you'll find here.
Welcome! No need to wipe your feet.

          Etsy and the vintage camera Archive - Kodak Brownie Starlet      Cache   Translate Page      

My Etsy store is finally in business! Hurray!
Apparently, demand for my collection of old cameras is far higher than for my prints made with them. I'll try not to think of that too much.
And now, they are gone! A Kodak Brownie Startlet & Dignette and an Agfa Gevabox and Silette. Off to their new owners.

Because I put more than a little work into researching the history of these cameras and how they work, I decided to give a honourable mentioning on this blog to the ones that have left. Think of it as an expanding archive of tidbits on pieces of equipment from a time gone by. Until I find a better way to organize them, you can find a link to the Archive (it looks even cooler with those caps) in the toolbar of the blog.

Let's start with the little one's: The Kodak Brownie Starlet
The Starlet was part of a long running line of Kodak cameras called 'Brownies'. Named after a cartoonesque figure by the hand of Palmer Cox, the original Brownie famously was the world's first affordable snap shot camera.
The starlet is asimple plastic point-and-shoot camera made in 1956. There are many variations on the basic body design, some featuring huge dish-like flash sockets. While you might be tempted to search for all kinds of explanations for its name (was it made for Marilyn? perhaps a scandalous affair with the Kodak company boss?) apparantly, we shouldn't look to far; in other parts of the world, the same (or a very similar) camera was also marketed as the 'Fiesta' and 'Bullet'.
Feel free to think of dark theories for the "Starlet Bullet Fiesta".

The camera uses hard to come by 127 square format film. It features a simple plastic Dakon lens and flash connections.




          Urban Exploration with Vintage Cameras      Cache   Translate Page      


 (Yashicaflex with Portra 400)

'Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.'

That is the true urban explorer's code. Or so I have been told.

I am not a 'true urban explorer' by any stretch of the imagination. On a typical sunday afternoon, you will not find me in heavy, canvas slacks, packing rations and a torchlight, ready to dive headlong into a promising-looking sewege drain. Chances are I will be sitting at a table, in my morning gown, unshaven, sipping coffee and writing this very piece you are reading.

I am however not impervious to the draw of an abandoned building. So when a friend asked me if I was up to the challenge, I finished my cup, put on my shoes and was glad to go.

 (Yashicaflex with T-Max 400)

Now, if you ever go out and do some urban exploring, take it from a non-professional and read up on some safety tips first. There is real danger in the enterprise and you should never leave unprepared lest you'd like yourself not to return at all. Travel mean, lean and sleak and if you want to bring a camera, choose one that is easy to carry and use.

Or don't.

 (Zeiss Ikon Simplex with Kodak T-Max 400 pushed to 3200)

I was stubborn and took two vintage and bulky cameras with me on our tour of a sprawling castle complex. I like the thought that it was probably left for dead when the antique pieces in camera bag were still considered and sold as new and technologically advanced.

While the site has been mostly stripped bare, graffitied and reclaimed for games and by nature, there was still a lot to be seen for us who cared enough to climb a few stories (no stairs though).

 (Zeiss Ikon Simplex with Kodak T-Max 400 pushed to 3200)

I loved that! And then, I loved coming down, cooking some coffee and writing about it at my table.

Enjoy the pictures!

Home-made prints of some these pictures as well as vintage cameras are for sale in my Etsy shop.

For those interested, the cameras I took with me were a Yashicaflex S and a Zeiss Ikon Simplex 112/7 belows camera with a 6x9 back. Film used was Kodak 400 T-Max (pushed to iso3200 for the Zeiss) and Portra 400.

          Vintage cameras, collections and Etsy prints      Cache   Translate Page      


When my fiancee and I moved into our new (actually rather old) home in Kessel in January, we both came with the dream and dedication to start our own businessess. We renovated the old family home with this in mind, transforming in particular, the attic into our joint workshop. When the year sped up, we were both ready for it. Working from home we found that, far from slacking, the biggest risk of starting your own job is one of never being able to stop. Moreover, we had no partner to come home to and bitch about the work or the colleagues - that partner would now all about it already... However, manoevering these pitfalls we found a remarkable equilibrium.

What is cool and makes this work as good as it does - apart of course from the fact that we are the perfect couple :) - is a significant overlap in interests and ideas as well as very specific skills. Elise is not only a master in crafts, she's also a very gifted illustrator. This is despite rather than thanks to her study at the Royal academy of arts. I am happy to say she has found a new joy in creating old-timey and naïve postcards and posters (all for sale on Etsy of course).

Her passion for crafts and her Steiner-school inspired if-we-can-think-it-we-can-do-it approach, amongst other things, has inspired me to have a go at starting my own business with iso800 in the first place. Vice versa, I try to help her think more business-wise. I also photograph some of her high-brow products (self-made skirts, toys, etc.) and scan her illustrations while she makes adorable lens pouches for me and provides us with drawings for our website.

And then there is the stuff that makes us a unique team. Apart from the never ending stream of ideas we are planning to unleash upon the world (soon, we promise!), there's the vintage camera thing. This is Elise's genius at work. For her vintage shop to thrive, we visit loads of second hand stores, flea markets and flea-ridden shops. When she noticed early on that I was mostly limbing along semi-interested, she came with a suggestion: 'Why don't you start collecting vintage cameras? Maybe even sell them on my Etsy shop?' That really hit home. In a short while I collected some 30 beautiful examples (mostly pre 1980s viewfinder and box cameras). In no time I found doubles, even triples and had to store them in seperate boxes. And so in the low-times, I gather information on these cameras and present them nicely photographed and sell them nicely wrapped on Etsy. Did I already stress we are quite the team :)?



Then, a month or two ago, Elise came with the coup de grace: 'Woudn't it be cool if you opened your own Etsy shop with prints?' Something for the low-times, something to do with the loads of personal work that keeps piling up on my hard-drive. And what if, in an attempt to do it really differently, that shop would not only feature pictures made with the aforementioned vintage cameras; many of which would then be for sale on Elise's shop?

(A small behind the scene of how I made the wretched banner for the shop. And to think I am so incredibly bad at crafting...)

Well, that 'what if' now is: Jonathan Debeer Fine Art Prints with Vintage Cameras!
You are most welcome.

Tears are like rain. They loosen up our soil so we can grow in different directions. ~Virginia Casey
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just look at these beautiful pink earrings! They are natural natural rose quartz stones that have been permanently dyed to enhance their color. Hand wrapped in sterling silver by me. Perfect for spring!

If you believe, rose quartz has special properties for Taurus (April 21 to May 20) and for Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21).

Total length: 1 1/2" measured from top of ear wire
All of my ear wires are sterling silver except for the hypoallergenic hooks, which are raw titanium. Post ear wires will shorten the earrings by 1/4". Flat wire hooks are pictured here.

Free domestic shipping is available when your order totals $25 or more. Etsy doesn't have a calculation for this, so if your order qualifies, I will promptly refund any shipping dollars you were charged.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rose quartz is one of the most desirable varieties of quartz. The unique pink-to-rose-red color is caused by iron and titanium impurities in the natural stone. However, the stones I use, unless otherwise stated, (and most on the market) have been dyed to maintain a uniform color. Both naturally colored rose quartz and the dyed forms are photosensitive and will fade in sunlight. Beads of rose quartz have been found in Mesopotamia that date back to 7000 B.C. It is said that the Assyrians and the Romans were the first to use it. In ancient Rome, rose quartz was popular for making seals, which were used in clay or various dyes to show ownership or identify authors. Rose quartz is found in Madagascar, Brazil, India, Germany and several parts of the USA.

The role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. Until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. Silver jewelry has been found as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was the main supplier of silver for a long time and as a result, became very rich. The discovery of the America's and subsequent silver mining in the United State and Mexico were responsible for the drop in value. Silver is a precious metal, not a mineral. Today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and Russia.

->->-> For Those Who Believe ;)
-- ROSE QUARTZ --
love, peace and happiness
Star Sign:
Pisces ~While providing inner harmony, rose quartz teaches Pisces
to better cope with life's changes.
Taurus ~ Rose quartz provides the underpinning for those born under the sign of the bull to love and care for themselves.
Sagittarius ~ With rose quartz Sagittarius will find the tenderness and love her mecurial personality sometimes lacks.

-- SILVER --
Some believe that silver transmits and intensifies the power of healing stones, so that when they are set in silver they become even more powerful. Turquoise and coral are examples. Like gold, silver symbolizes wealth and prosperity. Those prone to outbursts of anger and rudeness can be pacified by silver.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
the Greek origin of the word jasper, iapis, means “spotted stone.” this form of semi-precious chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz, has colors of dark red, orange, pink, rust, yellow, tan, brown, green, gray, blue and black. its patterns are much less regular and defined than those of the other chalcedony variety, agate. another difference between the two is that jaspers are generally opaque, while agates tend to be translucent (or at least contain translucent bands). jasper gets its colorful patterns from other minerals present. this gemstone is often named according to its pattern; landscape jaspers are the most popular. jasper was a favorite in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. people of the fourth century called it the great “rain-bringer”. jasper is also known as the “supreme nurturer”. jasper is mined in North Africa, Sicily, France, India, Venezuela, Germany, the USA and many more countries.

picture jasper is petrified mud and has streaks of color (browns, tans, blacks, creams) that look like landscapes, anything from desert sand dunes to rocky mountains to a dry riverbed. it is formed by mud rich with quartz that oozed and dripped into pockets of gas formed by molten lava. the heat from the exposure turned the mud almost instantly solid. picture jasper is found in Idaho and Oregon.

the role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. silver jewelry was produced as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was for a long time the main supplier of silver and it became very rich as a result. after the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans, so much silver was mined in the United States and Mexico that the price and the value attached to silver fell sharply. today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and the former Soviet Union. silver is a precious metal, not a mineral.

->->-> for those who believe ;)
-- jasper --
Native American rain stone, will-power
star sign:
Capricorn - will find that this gemstone promotes steadfastness and self-confidence.
Aries - jasper symbolizes will power. it endows Aries with follow through and energy.
Virgo - jasper fosters modesty and self-restraint, strengthening one's sense of reality
and connection to the earth. it gives Virgo physical and psychological strength.

It is not possible to capture all the nuances of dichroic glass in photographs. That, of course, means that you will have an even more dynamic piece of jewelry when you are wearing it. We work primarily with dichroic glass. Di-chroic means two colored, or multicolored) . This type of glass transmits light in one wavelength, & reflects light in two other wavelengths. It is common for dichroic glass to appear as 2 or 3 different colors, simultaneously. Dichroic glass is coated with electronically excited metallic particles in a vacuum chamber, at elevated temperatures. In our studio, we start with large sheets of glass which we cut into small pieces. These pieces are specially arranged & melted together in a kiln to form our jewelry.

Trumps Bildungsministerin will das Verbot für Bundes-Förderung für Religions-Privatschulen nicht mehr durchsetzen.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced Monday that she will no longer enforce a provision in federal law that bars religious organizations from providing federally funded educational services to private schools.
Die "Bildungs"ministerin ist bisher eher durch ihre Inkompetenz und Steuersparmodelle für ihre Luxusjacht aufgefallen.

Das geht zurück auf eine Entscheidung des Supreme Court aus dem Jahre 2017.

          Why these investing experts say Etsy is the best new retail buy      Cache   Translate Page      
Mark Newton of Newton Advisors and Erin Gibbs of S&P Global discuss Stitch Fix, Etsy, and Wayfair as possible new retail ETF leaders with CNBC's Mike Santoli.
          Our Mindful Eye      Cache   Translate Page      
This is a little project I started over a year ago.  It is a gratitude journal but instead of writing I was drawing the pictures and then using my water colors.  I didn't get too far, only about 6 pages done, and now I have not touched it for almost a year.  Why?  I haven't actually touched any of my creative tools for almost a year.  My life changed in big way when my granddaughters were born.  The changes that followed have really restricted my availability for my creative pursuits.  Now, I wouldn't change getting to spend this time with my girls for anything, but I would love to start fitting it in again!

The truth is, I need to find a way to add some extra income or new income to the mix.  Really I would love to make my living doing something I love, ART.  As long as I was getting to use my brain to create, I would be in heaven.  There are so many things that I love to do, but none that I feel I am amazing at.  I am definitely a jack of all trades and master of none.  I fear selling something, thinking it's not perfect.  I like to sew, and there are several things I think about selling because they are things I want, and can't find. But when someone pays money for something, I feel like they would expect it to be perfect, and I don't sew perfect.....or I just am afraid to jump in, but I need to, I really really need to.  Because I love so many things and con't focus on just one, I start to think my Etsy store would be like a hodge podge of whatever I was making at the time, and that doesn't sound professional.  Uhhhhgggg......what to do?  

Anyways this past week has had me thinking about the fact that I need to just make time to be creative.  Doing something everyday, to improve my skills, my confidence, my belief that God gave me these gifts for a reason and I should use them.  Even to pray about it and let God direct me.  All the praying I do, very little to none is about this area of my life, how sad is that?  

There is a lot more I could say, but I keep finding myself posting this so late at night.  The next morning when I reread it, so many grammar errors or dropped words.....Oh the horror.  

I wonder what has been on Tracie West's mind this past week?  She is a very talented soul, and loves to draw as well. We even have a class we purchased to do together like 2 years ago and we have not done it.  We need to!!!!

          CRUEL INTENTIONS Announces Casting As Film's 20th Anniversary Approaches      Cache   Translate Page      

In conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the release of cult classic film, casting has just been announced for Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical, coming to The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts on May 4 for one performance only at 8 pm.

The cast features veteran stage performers including John Battagliese ("BAZ: Starcrossed Love") as Greg McConnell, Richard Crandle ("Hairspray") as Ronald Clifford, Jeffrey Kringer as Sebastian Valmont, Dara Orland ("Beauty & the Beast") as Mrs. Bunny Caldwell, Taylor Pearlstein ("Flashdance") as Kathryn Merteuil, Brooke Singer ("The Great Pie Robbery") as Cecile Caldwell, Betsy Stewart ("October Sky") as Annette, David Wright ("Cinderella") as Blaine Tuttle, Nicole Medoro ("This Ain't No Disco") as the Female Understudy and Aramie Payton ("The Scottsboro Boys") as the Male Understudy.

Sony Pictures will also celebrate the original film's anniversary with a theatrical re-release on March 22 in an exclusive one-week engagement nationwide.

"Cruel Intentions" originally opened on March 5, 1999 from Columbia Pictures and featured now-iconic stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon and Selma Blair. Based on the film's success, Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin and Roger Kumble created a musical version appealing to fans of the movie and '90s pop music alike. The musical's success has garnered a national tour and original Off-Broadway Cast Recording, released this month. The production also hits the road for the first time this month, featuring a jukebox of nostalgic hits by artists like Boyz II Men, Christina Aguilera, REM, NSYNC and Britney Spears.

Original film director Roger Kumble calls Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical "an amazing musical that even people who hate musicals would love, complete with a soundtrack loaded with the greatest '90s guilty pleasure songs." The new musical pulls audiences into the manipulative world of Manhattan's most dangerous liaisons, Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil. Seduced by revenge and fueled by passion, the two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster's daughter, Annette Hargrove. As the two set out to destroy the innocent girl and anyone who gets in their way, they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation and the cruelest game of all, love.

Tickets to Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical start at $35. Discounts are available to members of The Hanover Theatre and groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469) or at The Hanover Theatre box office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.

Hi, everyone! I am thinking about opening an Etsy shop and trying to sell some my jewelry creations. I'm gonna share a few pictures (believe me, I've got a lot more than just this) and I would like to know what y'all think.













Let me know what you think. This is a small sample and doesn't even include every style I've done.
Thanks! I look forward to what y'all have to say.

Hugs,
Pauline

PS - I'm thinking about using the same name as my digital scrapbooking designs. Opinions?

All my journals, notebooks and diaries, are hand bound and made from scratch in my home studio. Each handmade book is made with a fabric cover and bound with lined paper or blank paper and finished with different traditional techniques of book binding. The lined paper I use is custom made, Custom paper. I designed it myself and print it to be used only in the personal journals that I make. In the beginning I only made blank books, but many of my customers wanted lined paper inside their personal journals, they said it makes it easier for writing. So now all my custom notebooks are made with lined paper unless you specifically ask for a blank book.
Please don't confine yourself to my definitions, any of my handmade books can be used as a travel journal or as a pregnancy journal or as a journal diary. So browse around my notebooks and pick a journal diary that you like and use it for your personal writing.
It usually takes me two days to finish your ordered hand bound custom notebook and then I send it to you. Any handmade book or personal journal or custom notebook that you see here that you wish you could have it in bigger size, simply contact me by a message here in my Etsy shop, I can make it for you.

Review By Kathy Carpenter

March 12, 2019 (Spring Valley) - Anything is possible if you let it happen. That’s the message that Mary Poppins provides to her charges in this whimsical, delightful adaption.  Joe Dionisio and the Young Actors' Theatre team continue to work their magic bringing us top-notch youth productions.

Everyone knows the story of Mary Poppins, the practically perfect nanny who comes to work her magic on the Banks family. Two children out of control have caused prior nannies to come and go. A wife has lost herself as she tries to be the perfect wife. Most compelling, George Banks is a dad who becomes his father, all work and no play in order to provide for his family. Live the story once more with this charming musical.

There were several stand-out performances in the show. Mary Poppins, played by Julia Swann, let her talent shine, bringing everything she had to the role. Even more impressive to me was Kinzie Pipkin as Ms. Banks. She has a pitch-perfect voice and played the role to perfection. Seth Holt brought freshness to the role of Bert, with his large family and friends in the audience to cheer him on. George Banks is perhaps the character who changes most, thus using his talent to display transformation, portrayed by Roland Meisker. Jane and Michael Banks were played by Addison Munsterman and Jackson Yakos. Kids playing other kids not an easy task. Job well done. Other stand-outs include Katie Racine as the bird lady with a beautiful rendition of "Feed the Birds."  Ezri Alvarez as Mrs. Corry and Nate Woriie as Robertson Ay both did amazing jobs. Many of the young actors played multiple roles and the entire cast nailed it.

My favorites scene features the song "Supercalifragilistic." The always incredibly fast-paced number with amazing choreography from Ricardo Valenzuela ends act one. The other highlight for me is "Step in Time," the wonderful tap number with Bert and the chimney sweeps.

Betsy Alvarez recreated Mary Poppins' wonderful white dress with the red corset style waist and I loved it. The dress and hat were perfect. Mrs. Corry's outfit was also great.  The period clothing in the show set the tone. The settings were the Banks' living room and outside in the park in London.

Refresh your memories or create new ones with your children as you enjoy this fun family musical.

          Lourdes Souvenir French Flask Water Carrier 1958 with Cup by Vintagefrenchlinens      Cache   Translate Page      

117.50 USD

Souvenir Flask from Lourdes Centenary Commemorative 1858-1958

Who knew? There exist special little canteen-like flasks made to bring water back home from your visit to the holy destination of Lourdes in the south of France....and this one comes with a little cup commemorating the Centenary Anniversary of the founding of Lourdes! Although rare, we have had, over the years, several of these flasks in the shop, but we have never seen one with the little cup.

The tin is lithographed with views of this holy place of pilgrimage where the waters are believed to have miraculous powers for healing. On the side is a picture of the Virgin...and it has the dates 1858 and 1958.

This charming object shows its age somewhat. Rather rusty here and there, (the cup is rusty inside), the enamel scratched away in places...but really it is still a most charming thing with a nice patina and generally in good vintage condition. Even the original cloth carrying strap is in place.

This highly collectable (especially from the Centenary year) old tin flask measures approx. 7 inches across and approx. 9 1/2 inches high, including the little handle.

          The heat is on single use plastics as state and local governments introduce new legislation to curb disposal and boost recovery      Cache   Translate Page      
new legislation to curb disposal and boost recovery
New breed of lawmakers taking on straws, cups, packaging, collection, etc. “Resistance is futile,” says sustainability consultant Betsy Dorn, RSE USA.

Thoughtful public policy, at the state and local level, drives higher collection rates. States with programs in place can boast better recovery success. Dorn’s remarks came at the Smithers-Pira event, “Sustainability in Packaging U.S. 2019” in Chicago March 4-6.

The evidence is in. States and local governments with policy tools, targets and goals are making a difference when it comes to maximizing recycling collection and working to minimize landfill use.

The problems are many:

  • Low material capture including loss at MRF (materials recycling facility).
  • Quality inconsistency in supply due to contaminants
  • Soft demand in both domestic and international markets
  • Low cost of disposal—landfill cheap and plentiful
  • Cheaper virgin materials enjoy subsidies recycled content do not
  • Insufficient public education
  • Lack of infrastructure

Types of public policy tools being used in states like WI, ME, MA, CA, OR, WA, etc., include motivating consumer behavior with mandatory requirements and punishing the bad actors with fines and penalties.

Steps like this can help to provide market certainty, improve economies of scale and level the playing field. What drives higher capture of recyclables? Automatic collection via curbside carts, automatically built into your refuse hauling bill.

Note, some states with big populations like Florida and Texas have no public policy for recycling. States and municipalities having success in single family residential homes are now broadening efforts to include multi-family, commercial and public space.

Funding comes from regulation and enforcement. Thirty-four states have disposal surcharges, not necessarily only on packaging, these user fees might also include furniture, etc. Any excessive use of the landfill comes with a price.

Other types of controls include hauler licensing for standards and best practices, recycled content purchasing policies, and “pay as you throw” programs incentivizing less waste and more recycling. Successful programs have seen 50% increases in recycling tonnage and 15-20% decreases in disposal.

Seen as more aggressive, EPR (extended producer responsibility) mandates are included in draft bills for packaging and printed paper in IN, WA and MA. Minimum recycled content and “tethered caps” are included in proposals.

On the positive side, there are tax incentives for lower carbon impact.

The new breed of young legislators is tired of the talk and is taking action. Even if some of these proposals are dialed back for sake of compromise, the trend is for more states and local governments to create public policy around sustainability, including single use plastics and packaging.

Industry should have a role in championing good policy. And here’s no doubt more policy is on the way.

          The Good Samaritan, Iceman, and a Darling Baby      Cache   Translate Page      
 

If you don't know the story behind this birth announcement, it could be quite puzzling. SO, this cute idea (our daughter-in-law has a ton of cute ideas in the graphics department!) came about because when they were pregnant, they presumably asked their four year old (our grandson) what he thought the baby should be named.  He came up with the perfectly sensible suggestion, "Toolbox!" (His daddy is a carpenter - named Joseph. Isn't that cool?) ANYway, I digress. So hence the toolbox birth announcement. And yes, he was born on February 28 and yes I've already told you about that, but who could resist one more cute picture when given a good excuse??

 Oliver does love his baby brother,
but I thought it was smart that his mama and daddy gave him a toolbox too!


SO,
Join Terri and the Gang

  Plug in the questions on your own blog
and
Link up at Terri's blog.

Here is a medley of questions you may choose to answer on your Wednesday blog.  I always start with the National Day and base questions from there. No rules and there is no obligation. Link up if you want to.  I'm doing this to fill my Wednesday and if you are interested, then I invite you to join in!!  It might be fun!!

----------------------------------------------------------

NATIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN DAY – March 13

NATIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN DAY

National Good Samaritan Day is observed on March 13th.  This day is also known as Good Samaritan Involvement Day. This is a day for unselfish actions to help those in need and to celebrate kindness.
The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible parable where a Samaritan helped a stranger who had been robbed and beaten and left to die by the side of the road.  The Samaritan not only cleaned the man’s wounds and clothed him, but took him to an inn where he paid for the man’s care.
The term is used today to describe those who perform acts of kindness for those in need, especially those who are strangers.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Make an effort to help someone who is struggling or having a problem. Use #GoodSamaritanDay to post on social media.
------------------------------------------------------
 I did not shoot UP to get this photo of the huge snowbank at our house. Wisconsin had virtually no snow until February and now has broken records for snowfall amount. Hopefully it will start to melt soon, although then there's the issue of flooding. We're on a hilltop, but lots of people will be in flood range. Please pray for them.
1.  When did someone come to your rescue and can you tell us about it?
 I have no idea. God, for sure, and always. 
I realize this isn't totally related, but yes it is, and so I happened upon this picture, 'Agony in the Garden,' 1898 Frans Schwartz. Two things: It really shows the humanity of Jesus and the fear he faced as he knew what was soon going to happen (the crucifixion and all the torture and suffering leading up to it).  Another thing: It reminds me of my cousin David (it even looks like David) who spent all the years of his life suffering, from the time he served in Viet Nam until he died at a fairly young age. He came to know Jesus in the year or two before he died and is now with his Lord. And that reminds me that we never know the suffering that people are going through. So much is hidden, internal, and the surface that we see can be alcoholism, drug abuse, despair, or cynicism or indifference. Understanding, kindness, and prayer are needed in this world, rather than judgement, harshness, and self-righteous condemnation.
2.  When did you help someone out of a jam and can you tell us about it?
I have no idea and I cannot tell you about it. But I do pray for many people daily, so maybe... 
 Another beautiful morning as viewed from our front porch
There is a deck on the house in Wausau that has beautiful views also. Not like this, but still so much more than we had hoped or deserve.
3.  What are your thoughts on being a good Samaritan?  Some states (like Florida) have even passed Good Samaritan laws so you don't get into trouble with the law for trying to help someone.
It's quite incredible that a state has to pass laws so that you DON'T get in trouble for being a Good Samaritan. Good grief!
4.  Thursday is National Pi Day.  It's a fun play on the date 3.14.  Will you have some pie to celebrate?
If I could have a piece of my mom's lemon meringue (after scraping off the meringue), I would definitely eat it on Thursday. But because she is no longer with us and no other pie tempts me as much, I most likely will not be eating pie. I love any berry pie and lemon meringue, pecan, mincemeat, and apple. I really do try to avoid pie. I love it going down, but I get a headache afterwards from all the sugar. 
 The beginnings of my lemon meringue pie, just like Mom's
You'll have to take my word for it.
5.  Did you know that Pi is the most studied number in mathematics?  Are you good with numbers?
I'm pretty good with numbers as in remembering sequences of numbers. Other than that, even thought I'm fairly good at figuring out math problems, Mr. C. has them all figured out in his head in a matter of seconds, which is utterly annoying.
 But he's a wonderful grandpa. And yes, I should be, and am, grateful that he can whip up those math answers in barely an instant.
Photo taken a couple years ago. We'll get to see those kids too, in April! Can't wait!

The Iceman threatening his wife - our daughter.
Actually, they're a very happy couple. And a little crazy and lots of fun! They're standing in front of the Wausau house that will soon be home. Look behind Iceman. There's another house. I mean, it's a neighborhood. Yes, I'm excited to have neighbors after all these years of living out where there's no one else around. With a wee bit of trepidation, of course, but I have lived in the wilderness for a long time and am ready to move. I pray that God will use me in this new situation to show His love to others. Pray for me! (please)
6.  Tell us something random about your week.
As you read this, we will be moving our daughter and kids out of an apartment and into the house that we will all be sharing come the end of the summer. They will move in first and be much closer to the school the kids attend (as in less than a half mile) and we will be doing updates, repairs, etc. to this farmhouse and downsizing. Once I get going on it, I can really make progress. The issue is mostly getting started. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
I dropped off posters for Tommy and Smokey at the two local vets' offices on Monday and they were enthusiastic about helping find a wonderful home for the two of them.
  
I would happily email you the .jpg file if you want to help get the word out on your Facebook page or Instagram. Of course people in Wisconsin or Minnesota would be the most likely to be interested. But who could resist such cute and sweet kitties, right???!!!

          Fun with my Zing      Cache   Translate Page      
 Hi All, I have a card to share today that I made using a new fun technique I stumbled upon thanks to the the awesome pen holders Steven at 3D Yours made for me.  This awesome pen holder is for my KNK Zing machine.   He made it so I could use the Sakura Gelly Roll pen in my KNK Zing, as those pens don't fit in the standard Zing pen holder.  What is really cool is that I also found out that I can also use the Sakura Quickie Glue pen in my Zing now too, they have the same barrel size so his holder works for both!

 Now to the fun part, the glue pen allows me to heat emboss and cut the same project!  I love it!  So many more possibilities now!   For this card I used some beautiful free SVG files from Monicas Creative Room.  I used her Fancy Edge card 3 to die cut the bottom border of the card and the beautiful snowflakes are called Layerd Snowflakes 3, they look gorgeous embossed in white opaque embossing powder.

For all of you with die cutting machines, please check out Stevens Etsy Store called 3D Yours , he has pen holders for all sorts of pens and machines.  I also have another of his pen holders that will fit the Sharpie Ultra Fine pens.  If your machine is not there, ask him about it, that's what I did and he worked to get these made for me!  (I can not thank you enough Steven, the pen holders are really awesome!) They are really nicely made too, the pens snap into the holders for a really nice fit, no need to fiddle around or add anything extra to get it to work, just snap it on the barrel of the pen and screw it into place on the Zing!

I hope this finds everyone doing well, thank you as always for stopping by and thanks again Steven, the pen holders are awesome!   ~Diane

Trump's education budget proposal should concern us deeply. This is bald-faced educational charterization and privatization agenda that masquerades as "freedom," but which is ultimately about what scholar David Harvey terms, "accumulation by dispossession," which is core to the neoliberal agenda.

President Donald Trump is seeking a 10 percent cut to the U.S. Department of Education's budget in his fiscal 2020 budget proposal, which would cut the department's spending by $7.1 billion down to $64 billion starting in October.
Funding for teacher development under Title II, totaling $2.1 billion, would be eliminated, as would $1.2 billion in Title IV funding for academic supports and enrichment and $1.1 billion for 21st Century Community Learning Centers that support after-school programs. In total, funding for 29 programs would be eliminated in the federal budget. 
On the other side of the ledger, Trump's budget blueprint calls for $500 million for federal charter school grants, a $60 million increase from current funding levels. The president also wants $200 million for the School Safety National Activities program, which would more than double the program's $95 million in current funding—of that amount, $100 million would be used to fund a new School Safety State Formula Grant program. There are no requirements for the grant program related to firearms, according to the Education Department. And the office for civil rights would get $125 million, the same as current funding.
On the school choice front, the department says its main proposal has already been introduced: a federal tax-credit scholarship program from Republicans. The Treasury Department's budget proposal includes $5 billion for the cost of such a program. 
Meanwhile, the Education Innovation and Research fund would be funded at $300 million, a $170 million increase from fiscal 2019. Of that amount, $200 million would "test the impact of teacher professional development vouchers," according to a presentation from the Education Department, while $100 million would go toward innovative STEM grants. In addition, the Trump budget would provide $50 million for a pilot program under Title I to help districts create and use weighted student-funding formulas—this pilot program was created under the Every Student Succeeds Act in order to help schools focus money directly on disadvantaged students and those with special needs. Funding for the District of Columbia Opportunity Scholarships Program, which provides vouchers to students in the nation's capital, would increase to $30 million. 
Title I funding for disadvantaged students, the single-largest federal funding program for public schools, remains flat at $15.9 billion in Trump's budget pitch. Special education grants to states would also be level-funded at $13.2 billion. Also flat-funded are the English Language Acquisition formula grants at $737.4 million. 
"This budget at its core is about education freedom—freedom for America's students to pursue their life-long learning journeys in the ways and places that work best for them, freedom for teachers to develop their talents and pursue their passions, and freedom from the top-down 'Washington knows best' approach that has proven ineffective and even harmful to students," said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in a statement about the budget proposal.
On a Monday conference call with reporters, Jim Blew, the assistant secretary for planning, evaluation, and policy development, acknowledged that Congress and the Trump administration have not been synced up in terms of education spending priorities. 
"The administration believes that we need to reduce the amount of discretionary funding for the education," Blew said. "That is based on the desire to have some fiscal discipline and address some higher-priority needs."
Blew indicated that the priorities should be the disadvantaged children and students with disabilities.

How the Trump 2020 Budget Request Affects Education ProgramsFor the third straight year, President Donald Trump has proposed cutting the U.S. Department of Education's budget. For fiscal 2020, the president is seeking a $7 billion cut, or roughly 10 percent, for the department, down to $64 billion. His total federal budget request is about $4.8 trillion. Trump wants to create a new school safety grant program and increase funding for charter schools and District of Columbia vouchers. At the same time, he wants to eliminate $2.1 billion in teacher training, and $1.2 billion for after-school programs. Other big programs like Title I and special education would receive the same funding that they currently receive in fiscal 2019. See how funding would change for various programs below.

Past Failures to Shrink the Department
Trump's total federal budget request is about $4.8 trillion. 
The U.S. Department of Education's current budget is about $71.5 billion. That's the largest nominal spending figure (not adjusted for inflation) in the department's history. 
The basic outlines of the 2020 budget proposal mark the third fiscal cycle in which Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos have sought to cut the Education Department's budget. In many key respects, as we wrote Sunday. Trump's first two education spending plans fell flat in Congress. In fact, Congress increased education spending for both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 by small amounts. And Congress has also criticized the budgetary process at the department under DeVos. 
Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., the chairman of the Senate appropriations committee, issued a brief response to the request, saying only that, "I look forward to reviewing additional details of the President's budget proposal in the coming week."
But Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., the top Democrat on the Senate education committee, blasted the proposal, saying that the budget request "proposes that middle class families pay the price with massive cuts to education" as well as health care and other programs. Murray later added that, "Secretary DeVos is proposing gutting investments in students, teachers, public schools, and even school safety--all to make room for her extreme privatization proposal that no one asked for. This is not a serious budget proposal, and I am going to once again work with Republicans in Congress to ensure every student has access to a quality public education in their neighborhood."
Advocates for after-school programs were quick to rebuke Trump's proposal to eliminate 21st Century Community Learning Centers. If Congress goes along with it, "Young children will be left without supervision. Working families will face untenable choices about how to ensure the safety of their children in the afternoon hours and over the summer. Learning opportunities will be squandered. Children, families and our economy will lose out," said Jodi Grant, the executive director of the Afterschool Alliance, in a statement. 
The most dramatic changes Trump has sought for the department's budget probably came in his first year, when he proposed a cut of more than 13 percent for fiscal 2018, the end of long-standing federal programs dealing with teachers' professional development and after-school activities, and a big shot in the arm for school choice. 
He followed up for fiscal 2019 with a smaller proposed cut to the Education Department of 5 percent. However, he once again sought to eliminate teacher training money under Title II and after-school spending, as well as the Title IV grant program designed to create safer schools and academic enrichment for students. In a particularly robust sign of its disdain for this plan—and in response to the Parkland, Fla., school shooting in February 2018—Congress boosted Title IV spending from $400 million to $1.1 billion.
The Trump administration later praised this spending increase as a boon for school safety, despite its previous attempts to eliminate Title IV as redundant—the block grant program is designed to cover a variety of programs, not just school safety. So it's notable that the administration is seeking to eliminate it once again. 
The one school choice victory for Trump on this front so far is a growing federal investment in charter schools. Spending on federal charter grants has grown from $333 million to $440 million during Trump's presidency. 
DeVos has already thrown her support behind a federal tax-credit scholarship proposal in Congress released at the end of last month. She's backing a $5 billion bill from Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has a similar proposal that seeks $10 billion in appropriations for the scholarships.

Getting ready for holiday rush

I say that tongue in cheek a bit since there is usually a slight bump in online sales during the holiday season and usually earlier rather than later. But for those who enjoy giving the gift of art, I did enhance my online presence with a new shop on ArtFire (can't hurt the Google search). I also uploaded most of my framed and matted inventory to the Etsy Shop, links of both on the left.

And I had been meaning to reorganize what I call Studio B, a cat/dog hair free and quiet place where I can mat, frame and ship without sending my customers dust and animal dander (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Here is a panorama!

Left to right: matted works atop the "tape department"
boxes and packing materials, the massive flat files dubbed Green Monster,
mail sorters with small works, framing supplies and envelopes and finally
the other small sorter and my work bench
(cleverly disguised as photo booth at the moment)

Wheels wheels

I learned in my art festival days that if it isn't on wheels, you have to carry it. So I have acquired sort of a wheel-mania. These last 3 weeks I spent some time placing the shelves you see and the flat files on wheels. After some browsing on the idea-rich www, I found a wood shop owner with my same wheel-disease. He placed everything in his shop on 3/4" plywood and wheels. Brilliant!
Shelves were easy, my buds at Home Depot
cut me the 3/4" ply to size and I just
placed the plywood on two furniture dollies

Flat files on four massive 650 lb capacity wheels and
a double layer of 3/4" plywood


The flat files were the hardest, dubbed the Green Monster because they used to be green (I changed that awful quality with a case of neutral tan spray cans). All my prints had to come off, stacked neatly on my work table, then the drawers came off, all 15 of them, then the thing just comes apart in three sections, a foot and a top. Everything is metal and heavy. Few hours, and presto!

Now if I get a guest or decide to rearrange, I just roll everything around to suit my needs. Ah the hidden life of a working artist...

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!








This week I have a whole lot of finishes to share. But they are all from my readers!!!!! 




Hi Lorna,

I wanted to send you  a few pictures of a quilt I recently  finished using your patterns. I'm not one to leave well enough alone, so I adapted the twin size to a baby size instead of using your pattern the way it was written. I wanted all the animals, and then some, so of course I made myself much more work. All the patterns are yours, just not quite in the layout you had worked out.  

When I was almost finished sashing the top, my daughter came in and said, "But where are the tails for the elephant and giraffe?"  I said that I was almost done and I wasn't ripping it apart to add tails. Uh huh. Sure. Of course I did it ! And made them 3 D to boot. Kids!! 

The male lion took me 4 1/2 hours to piece. Wow. I really do sew slowly!  Anyway, I had a lot of fun and my niece (who had done her baby's room up in safari theme) loved it!  I had done your Forest Friends baby quilt in the summer for a different niece (adapted that one too cause I just can't do anything the easy way) and that she loved it as well. Then I made pillows for the two older siblings using their favourite animal from the quilt. I think I sent you a picture of that one in the fall. 

Thanks again for making such lovely patterns. I hope all is well with you and your family. Heather MacDonald













I just finished this quilt. My 11 year old grandson stitched the birch trees and some of the background! I did the foxes and quilting. This was a great first project for him! If I did it again I would add a 2” border in the same color as the sky/background. Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of the piecing. The directions were very clear. Thank you!  Lori Hollis







Hi,  I'm doing the laying pipe quilt. The instructions for the couplings seem incorrect. I cut according to your measurements, but when sewn together they don't match the pipe pieces. Please see the attached picture. As far as I can tell the red and orange coupling pieces should finish at 1" and 2" to attach to the pipe. Please advise ASAP. I'm at retreat and quite frustrated. Thanks for any help you can offer.

(We conversed and I corrected the cutting chart for the couplings)

Problems with drips though. They are smaller than your drawing, so the background pieces don’t fit. 

(We conversed more and I corrected the cutting chart for the drips)

Your directions were great and easy to follow. It was just those measurements that threw a wrench (no pun intended) into things. Sue Decker









I’ve been keeping up with the block a week of the Harry Potter quilt. I really like how you present your patterns. I don’t use social media except for email and surfing the net, so I don’t know what kind of feedback you’re getting on the sew along. Thank you, Lorna. Here’s what I’ve done so far. Doreen Cohen
