Happy monday!

**** edited post, almost forgot I was tagged!****

Vacation is over, the kids are back to school and normal routine has started again.
The last two weeks we have been soooo lazy! Most days we stayed in our pj's until noon or even later.

Over New Year we went to Wijchen and we celebrated New Years Eve at my Bil's. We had a great time, the only things that wasn't so nice was that Lennart got sick. He wasn't feeling well when we left and it only got worse. He spend most of the time on the couch and at midnight on New Years Eve he forced himself out for the fireworks but within 10 minutes he was back inside the house with a lot of firework left overs, now waiting untill next year!

(my FIL baking "oliebollen" a dutch tradition for New Year)

(left overs...)

I didn't get any scrapbooking done! I went over to Anita un Tuesday evening to scrap but the only thing I finished was the cover of a little album I'm making for the demonstration at Kars in februari.
The last few days I prepared kits for the paperbag workshop I'm teaching the 20th. and I made one example of wich you see a few sneek peaks here, and that's it. Not one LO did I make!

But now, with the kids back to school and the demo at Kars coming up I'm sure I will do some scrapping this week so I hope I will be able to show something in the next couple of days...

I've been tagged by Anita L.!
1. Grab the book closest to you.

OK, this is the book I'm reading right now:
Op een gegeven moment kreeg Natascha een televisie en een radio in haar cel. "Daardoor ontwikkelde ik mezelf steeds meer", zei Natascha. "Omdat ik zoveel las kon ik ook wel boeken gaan schrijven dacht ik, romans. Ik begon in diverse blocnotes te schrijven, niet alleen maar in mijn dagboek".
This is from "Natascha Kampusch, het meisje in de kelder" "Girl in the cellar: the Natascha Kampush Story".
written by Allan Hall & Micheal Leidig
It's the true story of an Austrian girl that was kidnapped when she was ten years old. She escapped from her attacker when she was 18, in august of 2006!

I tag Anita, Revlie and Bonnette!

Have a nice monday!
