First post of the year & woyww & ppf

…with a glimpse on my desk and into my handmade calendar for 2014. I hope to be able to post to woyww and ppf more regularly this year! I love to see what’s going on on other desks and easels 🙂

I wish I could provide nicer, more crisp pictures. The light situation isn’t the best here these days. Gloomy, foggy, rainy, mostly grey outside. Haven’t seen the sun in days. So I hope you don’t mind those gloomy pics.


my kids’s pens and colored pencils, a hole punch (I use it for gift tags), glue stick, laser-khet (a game my boys and my Mr. like to play), watercolor background, various papers and scraps,  sketch paper from my little guy, my pink vintage ephemera – I LOVE this one (available in my new little Etsy store 🙂 there’s a coupon code at the end of this post, if you’re interested), my scrap journal, my art journal or ‘documented life’ journal, date stamp, a doodle sheet I did last night, derwent inktense pencils, …



…a little closer to the journal


201401_aj1last week in my artsy journal (handmade, only one signature as of yet – I will add on as the year progresses – perhaps trying to add different kind of papers, to try which ones I like best)
