Today is National Compliment Day, so take a little time to give someone a nice compliment. You never know the effect it can have on somebody’s day or even life! I’ll start with a compliment to all my lovely followers here: You’re awesome and you make me feel good!
Although I always have every intention to go outside, no matter what the weather is like, in reality I find the cold winter temperatures to be a perfect excuse to chill inside and not leave my house. Luckily I have a lot of nice things to draw there as well. (Illustration available as prints and greeting cards in my Etsy shop!)
This is an illustration from my perpetual/birthday calendar that fits very well to the Dutch weather at the moment… it’s so cold…brrrr! (Calendar available on Etsy, here.)
Illustrated recap of my recent trip to Gran Canaria. I enjoyed the nature, the food and the weather, had some great “accidental” adventures, met a lot of lovely people, slept on a beach under the stars, started a mini book club and drank quite a bit of Sangria. For now it’s back to work, but I can’t wait to go back to the beautiful Canary Islands!
Ps. The mini book club had 2 members who were both reading Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman at the same time; A perfect holiday read, I enjoyed it very much!
2019 goals! This year I want to continue to try to live a more minimalistic life, reduce my waste and focus more on experiences rather than on things. So less stuff, more adventures! (I do still like to draw ‘things’ and I will keep on doing that.) What are your goals or plans for 2019?
Happy New Year!! I love the new year because it means a fresh start full of new ideas, adventures, plans and goals. In 2019 I want to continue to live a more minimalistic life with less stuff and less waste. I want to stay creative and productive, learn some new skills, travel, read more books and stay healthy. And I want to enjoy myself while doing all these things of course! What are your plans/ goals for the new year?
