Lots of snow....

Hi Everybody!

Happy Thanksgiving to all friends in the USA,
enjoy the time with family and friends.

Once again I am inviting you to look inside my head....

I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always by 
Eva and Kristin.
And this hybrid piece is meant for Chris' lovely challenge,
 '101 ways to keep warm' at
I used elements from Mischief Circus and me.

Yesterday I went on a trip with my buddy G.
We visited an all-year-round ski resort in
the neighbouring town of Neuss. It's inside a huge - 
and I mean huge - building made specially to enclose
the ski-slope and the little mountain resort. 
More than a million people visit yearly.
You can see more here.
This is the entrance hall:

We went into one of the cafes there for some cappuccino
and cake, and enjoyed sitting in the warm,
and looking through the window at the people
outside who were skiing and snowboarding etc:

This little guy was all togged up and ready to go:

It was all a bit surreal, to be suddenly plunged
into an alpine resort on a relatively mild
and sunny autumn day....

More photos to follow, including some fun views
of the bathrooms there....

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Inside my head

Hi Everybody!

Recently I have been playing with my head....
This was the result:

For Michele's Music theme at Tag Tuesday I
have another tag:

These strange creatures were inhabitants of the Aquazoo:

An old diving helmet:

More of my fave penguins:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

T stands for Colours to keep you warm

Hi Everybody!

Tomorrow we are starting a new challenge at TIOT -
As always, projects of all formats are welcome, and you
have 2 weeks to link to us.
I made an A3 Journal page using the stamp I made
recently, stamped with Archival black. The BG was
sprayed with my home-made acrylic sprays and
I added depth with various stencils. The
sentiment was hand-written. I am also linking
to Art Journal Journey, Chris' '101 ways to
keep warm' challenge - colours make you warm!

Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here 
a hearty welcome to all of the nice ladies of the
T Gang. My buddy G recently bought this lovely bottle 
of wine. I haven't drunk it yet, I will drink it with my 
friend N together, as it was meant for both of us. But I 
will  definitely be saving the gorgeous label for crafting!

Last week I made a mandarin orange / sour cream cake.
It was eaten before I got round to taking a photo,
so here is one from the net:

And I have some more pics from the Aquazoo:

I wonder whose legs got into the aquarium?

Some models of tiny, underwater creatures:

My personal highlights were the penguins:

Taken on the way home last week:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
