28/29-update English (voor Nederlands zie de post hieronder)

I can't believe that it's already halfway into Juli! Time for an update on my 28 things to do before turning 29 list! I'll only mention the things I've worked on since my last update.

1: Make a zine
I know what I want to make and have some ideas for subjects. I'm thinking of combining the idea of a zine with the idea of a christmas letter. With a twist.

3: Have a little art retreat
Later this year we will be house-sitting at Wilma & Fred's and I fully intend to have my little art retreat then, of at least a day and maybe more. So the date is set!

5: Make a vlog
I have a subject, I'm making some preparations.

6: Make a (short) movie
I came up with a subject and was wondering how to make a stop motion picture. I had already written out some dialogues and had come up with silly voices and lame jokes. But one of my lead characters drowned in cat-pee (fortunately that was the only time Ko peed in the house during his stay, but I wish he would have chosen another place) along with all of his costumes. I need to borrow his brother from Wilma.

7: Finish a large scrapbookalbum from before 2010 (not a mini)
I have made some LO's over the past month (although for different albums) and am hoping my 150-challenge will motivate me to work on this. Because I have reasons to finish my 150-challenge in less than 3 months. 137 LO's to go. Wish me luck!

9: Work my way trough Keri Smith's book 'How to be an explorer of the world'

I caved in and joined Tami Morrison's BPS class 'Everyday Adventures', and had great fun even though I only had time to do part of the assignments. The class helped me get started. I have shown some of my results here and hope to work on it some more now that my English is done and I have more time.

10: Make an inspirationwire or -board
I'm still not sure where I'll hang it (the empty wall in my scraproom is made out of such sturdy concrete that i'm pretty sure I won't be able to use thumbtacks on it) but yesterday I bought a pretty card for it and I'm planning a visit to my favorite German postcard shop soon :-)

I bought this card (published by Catch) in the shop of the National Museum of Ethnology yesterday. Museums are great places to find inspirational postcards, I'll be paying more attention to them from now on!

15: Have a picnick in the park.
Our first attempt got cancelled because of massive rain showers. We have a date set for another attempt next month, fingers crossed for good weather!

16: Pick flowers
I had forgotten this one was on here. I actually did pick some flowers last month, I put them on Ine's coffin during the funeral service, she liked picking flowers.

' 17: Bake Cupcakes and decorate them nicely
I have some plans for august with little candles Tove sent me, and how about my rainbow cupcakes in Wednesday's post?!

19: Keep learning on my own after my English Examns
I'm looking forward to working on my French and I've signed up for some lectures about art history in the fall! And as always: museums, museums, museums! I have visited two last week and two this week and have a lot of visits to museums planned for the summer! And I've started reading a new book.

21: Finish all projects around the old photo's
Did a little bit of work on those. And actually got a larger workload, I'll be scanning some of the photo's that were found in Ine's house.

23: Get my Sinterklaas-website online
I have been browsing trough my photo archive, collecting photo's and getting a clearer idea of how I want the site te become.

See you soon!
