:::Let’s Party:::


Happy Birthday Dymphie!

Our hostess this week is Dymphie Meeuwissen – it is also her birthday! Dymphie selected the theme “party” for this weeks challenge – how perfect could that be? She created this adorable and whimsical arch that is so perfect for our theme!
What do you think of when the word “party” comes to mind? fun with family and friends? lots of presents and cake? whatever your inspiration is we hope you will share it with us in the form of a gothic arch!

When Nancy asked me to be guest hostess this Sunday I was thrilled and there was this one theme that popped right up in my mind: “Party Time!” Why? It’s my birthday today. This is the most delightful present I had in  years. Thank you Nancy!
I’m living in the Netherlands, married, no kids and working almost full-time. I learned bookbinding some years ago and in need of ways to decorate my covers I started to stamp. This led me into altered items and  mixed media. I love it all. I hardly make any books at the moment but am  longing to have some more time at my hands to start that craft again. I
love to do it, the accurate way of working is giving me peace of mind.
For this week: ‘Let’s Party!’


Toen Nancy me vroeg om deze zondag gastvrouw te zijn was ik helemaal 
overdonderd. Het thema dat onmiddellijk naar boven kwam was: “Feest!”.
Waarom? Het is vandaag mijn verjaardag. Dit is het leukste kado in
jaren. Dank je wel Nancy!

Ik woon in Nederland, getrouwd, geen kinderen en ik werk bijna
full-time. Een aantal jaren terug heb ik leren boekbinden en om de banden te 
decoreren ben ik begonnen met stempelen. Dit bracht me aan het
‘altered’ werk en gemengde technieken. Ik vind het allemaal leuk. Op het moment
maak ik bijna geen boeken, maar ik zou graag wat meer tijd omhanden hebben
om weer te starten met dit ambacht. Ik kan er echt van genieten daar mee 
bezig te zijn, het is heerlijk rustgevend precies werk.

Voor deze week: ‘Let’s Party!’
