Ooo I am painting my living room. And kitchen. And some furniture. I am adding some lettering here and there. Then my bedroom will get a lick of paint, and I am preparing new curtains for both rooms. And I am changing my lighting. And in between I am illustrating a whole new selection of cotton tapes for my shop. 
Truth is I want to be blogging, and blog around my favourite places, but I just don't have the time for a week orso. But I will be back as soon as I am done.

If you would like to keep me company, I have some nice coffee brewing, and I can even bake a cake x

[ ps. the husband is going to kill me. Just decided I will paint the dinner table, too. Restrain me! I have no self control whatsoever.... ]


  1. bake cake. all inbetween the painting. woman, you are crazy. but I love you :-) Don't care about blogging and paint your day away. it's good. And if you are done, pop over and paint here...

  2. Haha.... yep. That is me. Crazy. I will pop over as soon as I have time, and would paint your walls with pleasure :)x

  3. Mmmmmmm - coffee and cake.

    Did you receive some decent music to listen to whilst your busy painting away?

    Happy painting.

  4. Jill, no not received the cd yet, am keeping my fingers crossed the post-woman might be kind and leave me a package today :) x

  5. Oh - that's a shame. I hope it comes soon.

    Would you believe I posted it at Leamington Spa Post Office.

  6. Jill, that just makes me home sick. I do so miss Leamington. My twin was born in Warwick and I have such happy memories about England :/
    I will let you know immediately when your package arrives :)

  7. black, no sugar for me thanks! I so want to do the same to my house, maybe later in the summer. I have such big plans but fear I may never get there!

  8. I totally understand Karen. I have waited for 2 years to finally do something. I have just been so busy getting settled and just living life. I have literally been planning the changes for so long. And now I can't wait! The coffee is ready by the way :)

  9. Hello!

    I'll be on that track soon too... Moving comes first, (with all the mess that implies) and then comes more mess. But after that, I bet we'll both be happy with the result.

    So happy painting,
    and see you when we're both back!

  10. Have a happy move Katrien! I hope it will be quick and smooth! And ofcourse we all want to see lots of photos of your new home :)

  11. Oh my! I think I am hopping the next plane to you just to sit and watch the painting (and have coffee with you)! I am waiting...for yet another year...I can never get over how much you get done!!! Painting furniture!! Please, please, please show us!

  12. I've just found your blog and I love how it radiates inspiration, I will definately be back for more!

  13. Oooo,, you are so busy Anna, but all that painting project is wonderful. i should be doing the same, haven't done much painting in the house since we moved in almost 2 years ago. my bedroom looks terrible. Would be fun to share coffee and yummy cake with you.:)
    i would even give a hand painting the dinner table...o_o
    hugs to you dear ♥

  14. change is good.....especially when it involves painting rooms, and furniture.....and eating cake and drinking coffee......and doing some lettering here and there.....and creating new is good! have fun, anna!! xox, :))

  15. Summer is the perfect time to paint ! windows open new curtains sounds great.
    Had to get some work done will get to the post office today, my CD will be zooming your way.
    I hope you like it, so very different from yours.
    cheers, parsnip

  16. While your illustrating.....I have a HUGE HUGE request:)

    Could you PLEASE draw a little boy?????

    I am so in love with your tapes, would love a boy to add to my collection.....I am on my knees begging (I have a weak spot for all things lillalotta:) talk to anyone I know & they will tell you I rave endlessly about my custom made tape :)

    PLEASE:) Oh & I bought a pair of those Poppy longstocking black & white tights...can't wait to get them to wear.
