Another Manga portrait!

And here's another Manga portrait I made. This time with long hair. I'm thinking of letting my hair grow again you see!

When I was pregnant with Zander I had long hair. I decided to let it cut off when he started to pull my hair. Because my hair is very thick it is so much easier to handle when it's short and I truly believe that I look younger with short hair. Nevertheless, I want to give it a go to let my hair grow long again.

Here are some pictures of me from the past with either short or long(er) hair. Have a laugh!!! The one with black hair was taken when I felt really sick during a vacation in France. The one with the long dress was taken in a Laura Ashley shop when I worked there.

Face your Manga

Just made this portrait of me in Manga style over here!!! It's fun to do!!

Book of me 2007

Finally finished the Book of me 2007 which I started a long time ago. It's made with cardboard and paperbags. I used Basic Grey Periphery, a Hambly and chipboard letters from Heidi Swapp.

I'm still working on the album I started last week. I followed the workshop of Jo-Anne at SIS tv and learned some cool new techniques!
We had to use a lot of vintage stuff so I went to see my mother. She gave me my birth announcement card and all the birthcards they received after my brother and I were born. She even kept a very cute first birthday card my brother received. She also gave me her Poesiealbum (that's a small book where family, friends and teachers can write poems in) with a lot of vintage images.

I also found the fabric my mother used for our cradle and a small piece of fabric of a pyjama she made for me. So, I have a lot to work with now!
I'm not sure though when I feel fit enough to finish the album. I'm feeling very tired at the moment. My muscles ache a lot and I feel down.
So when I read an article in a local paper about a new therapy I send in an e-mail and the therapist called me back right away to answer some of my questions.
I have tried many alternative therapies in the past to feel better but none of them really helped. So I have become a bit sceptical although I still believe in healing our body without the use of farmaceuticals. This therapist told me that about 80 to 90% of the people they treat got rid of their physical or mental problems. They started to give this therapy to other people because his wive also got rid of her issues when she followed this therapy and she also had tried lots of different treatments.
The therapy is called: Photonen Coherentie Therapie and you can find more information here. They also give you links with information in English.

Nothing much happening over here. I just want to show you my new boots I bought at a braderie in our village last Saturday. I think they are cute!! The lady that sold them also has a website over here.

We had a nice and sunny weekend! I hung out in the back yard most of the time. I started reading The Da Vinci code by Dan Brown last Thursday. Actually, Zander wants to read it for a school assignment but I got intriged by the cover and started to read it first.

I also started to read Eat, pray, love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I saw her at the Oprah show not so long ago and ordered her book (in English) through
So I finally started reading again! I wasn't in the mood and too restless to read for a long time!

And last but not least .... I treated myself on an online workshop from Jo-Anne at SIStv to get my scrapbook creativity flowing again. It starts this Wednesday and I think you can still sign in.
So I hope to show you some new scrapbook stuff soon.
