passing on this blog award

“The Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee. In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…” See Renee's blog: Circling My Head

i recieved this award from Kate, an artist i myself admire loads, she makes the most beautiful atc's with great sewing and collages to die for if i'm ever up north of the UK i want to go play with her, for sure KATE!

i would like to pass it on to Six of the many artist i am lucky to know and truly appreciate!

i could pass it on to alot more artists but here are the ones i chose this time around

i hope you take time to visit their sites, they are all worth your time!

i can't send it back to Kate cos i would if i could!

i wish she lived aound my corner! she feels my vibes!
beautiful dolls!

he and his wife should live around my corner aswell, we would make art!!!!
and drink cheap red wine doing ithope they come to belgium in the near future!!
listening mike????
okay it is getting boring but i wouldn't mind her living closer either!!
cos she is beautifully chaotic and brave!!
again beautiful dolls!

so there you have the six artists i would like you to visit.
i've been playing with metal embossing! i'm getting the hang of it and am really loving the new possibilities for my altered art projects, i'm een thinking of giving my dolls metal dresses hihi! yep, my creative brain has twists! but i think it will look pretty neat!

i bought some more Paulo Coelho books, people!! you should really read these, he is a wonderful writer and well... look him up on interne

, give it a bit of your time and find out about him!

i have to thank J for getting to know him. (xox)

oh and did you hear the first song on my playlist, did you turn it off!? listen to it! it is the most beautiful lovesong of all times as far as i am concered! not that i am in love unless with life itself!

but don't you think it is a wonderful song? i love Crowded house.

J is learning some of the songs on his guitar! thanks J!
can't wait to hear you play! few more months huh!

i love Crowded house, oh i already said that... :-)
what else? well my dad is having his operation next week so i'll be away from home for a few days to be colse to him, i hope that all goes well. for one thing it is bringing us closer, we are having talks we have never had before. i still think he is really impossible and childish and will never grow up but you know what?
he is my dad and i love him and hope he sticks around for a long long time!
i would give him all the time in the world if it were up to me,
he can bug me for as long as he wants!
my daughter sent me an e-card for Mother's Day.
of course i'm not over it all yet!!!!! how can i be huh!?
but i'm letting go and dealing with it slowly.
an e-card is better than no communication isn't it?
and remember, and i am reminding myself at the same time...

!!!!!!LOVE IS LIFE!!!!!!
