Thursday- Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well!

My hybrid journal page today is showing an advent calendar I was sent from England a few years back. I kept the box after removing the contents as it was so pretty. It shows a hotel, where various people are working together - seeing to the Christmas decorations, singing Christmas carols, and having fun. The doors are open, people can go in and out. People who don't know each other get together to sing, to celebrate, to have a good time. Today many people are  treated badly because of their race, colour, religion or sexual orientation.  We need to overcome prejudices and open our minds and hearts. Open minds lead to open doors!

When one door closes, another one opens

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Art Journal Journey, and this time I am hosting! My theme is'when one door closes another one opens'. Doors are often something which we take for granted, we go in and out and rarely think about them. Doors protect us, doors lead us to new places, they are sometimes beautiful, and sometimes old and shabby. It's always exciting to go through a door, or portal into a new place we haven't visited. At this time of year many of us open a door every day in an advent calendar. We visit friends, and go through the door and see  what's waiting for us inside. And figuratively,  we close one door and open another at the end of the year on New Year's Eve. For this challenge, anything with doors is welcome. You can make a scene of whatever is inside or outside the door. Show us anything to do with doors, nice or shabby ones you may have seen, doors decorated for Christmas or your advent calendar, there are so many possibilities. So open the door to your creativity and have fun!


Hope to see YOU joining in!

Today I am sharing photos from Bad Honnef, a little town on the Rhine about 100 kilometres from here, with lots of beautiful, old houses.
















And some funnies:



Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Tuesday Post

Hi Everybody!

Today I am sharing my last piece for Chris'   all kinds of weather challenge at AJJ. Thanks to Chris who chose a great theme and gave us lots of inspiration.  My journal page shows blue skies, a green leaf, and some positive words, all made for spring. Tomorrow there will be  a new challenge!






I have been busy sorting my photos, and today I am showing a few of my bird photos taken at various times:
























Have a great day, take care,
