First I start with wishing a Happy Birthday to Edna!!! I already sent her a card by post but on the net I found these and just have to post them!
Would be nice if you visited her blog to leave a little birthday wish!
Then I have two links for you to take a look at some layouts, made with kits of mine.
One with the Autumn kit from Bonnie at
and one from Nanette, who got her layout with my Splash in the Pond kit published here:

The last couple of days I was, amongst doing some shopping and ironing and washing and vacuuming, in the kitchen. I made another bunch of stewing pears, made a soup we will have for easy dinner this evening, and then also making dinner of course. It doesn;t sound much, but it all took quite some time.
Oh yesterday I made spaghetti (not at all Jan's favourite, but a few times a year I just make it LOL) in this way:
I had a chicken filet, vut it in little chunks, pepper and salted it and fried them in a pan with just a little butter(you can also take olive oil), then had some bacon, cut that in real small chunkies and fried them too.
In the mean time had the spaghetti cooking(al dente, that's the best). Chicken ready, I aded a creamy white sauce, easy peasy out of a package, added some water to it and on the chicken. Then also the bacon, some fresh parsil and lots of pressed garlic. Spaghetti ready, added a bit of butter to it and then on the plate, on that the chicken and sauce and I must say, it was real yummie!
Oh I was a happy girl yesterday, because I found a few little Christmas presents. Still want to find a few more, but there is a start.
Today we decided to take a day off, LOL, I only have to cut Jan's hair again. I will have to make an appointment at the hairdresser for myself, cause there's nothing to do with it anymore. Perhaps next week.
And I must not forget that today is the opening of the speed skating season, it's the Dutch championshoip and our best speed skater, Sven Kramer, is presenting himself again. He was out of business for a long time due to a nasty injury, but it seems he is on the way back again. Very curious to see how he will do today.
This evening Jan is going to an acquaintance, who made a little billiard room in his house. They normally meet in the cafe to play a game, but soon the cafe will be closed, it's a pity. It seems it has been bought by someone who wants to continue a cafe, but then first it remains to see if it's in the same spirit. So the acquiantance invited a few guys to "celebrate the opening of his billiard room"LOL. I don;t know how long he will stay there, but I have enough to watch on tv, there's The Voice of Holland again and I also can do some designing in peace an quiet.
Today's kit is a real nice one, if I may say so myself ROFL!!! It's named "Remember with Tenderness"and I think some lovely layouts can be made with it.
Have a wonderful weekend!
