Getting on.

A big hug to every one who left me a kind comment, 
wrote me a lovely email and visited my shop. 
Thank you ever so much for your kindness. 
It means more than I could possibly express. 

I am still working through orders for another week or so. 
Soon I will change lots of things. 
New banner, new logo/branding, ordering supplies
for new projects, new illustrations. 

But first I must clear the attics, empty the garage. 
Paint the landing and stair well. Put down a new
wooden floor in our living room, create a new 
bedroom in one of the attics for my daughter, 
move one of my children to one room, and the other
two children to the bigger room upstairs.

I think I need an action-list, so I can keep myself working
in a specific order. 

Me walking backwards and becoming totally headless is
quite possible.

Who ever would have thought Autumn would be 
the Season of so much change. 

I better get on with it.


  1. Succes met Alle Dingen die nog op je liggen te wachten..Fijn weekend met af en toe een moment van Rust..

  2. Best of luck with all the work you have ahead and I can't wait to see your new creations!
    Happy autumn!!

  3. I definitely think you need a list! Then again if you are anything like me you will lose it, usuually by putting it in that safe place where nothing is ever seen again!!

  4. Good luck! Please, don't leave us, post some photos of your projects, rooms or floor or whatelse!:-)

  5. well, you have lots of to-do's on your list, my goodness ! But you've forgotten the guest room for when I will visit LOL

  6. It´s really a big to-do list!
    Wish you I lot of energy!!!

  7. Verandering komt met de herfstwind!!

    (ik moet wachten op je heropening om met Elvis moois te kiezen, we hebben geduld, first things first!)


  8. I'm right there with you, Sister!
    Why I thought it was a good idea to remodel our kitchen while I tried to write a book I'll never know. And for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to have pictures of my studio in my book ... you know what that means right? Taking EVERYTHING down, dusting, rearranging, de-stashing so it's not a clutter of piles ... on and on and on.

    I hope everything is WONDERFUL with you! I typed the last of my manuscript today, and in 1 more month I will have a life and time for mailart again!

    miss you like crazy - everyone is so big and adorable :)

  9. That little one above is just so cuddly looking and adorable! Sounds like you will be making some major changes and tackling some big projects...can't wait to hear how it all goes!

  10. Love your sweet lil blue girl, Anna! Make your to-do lists and make yourself feel good by crossing things off of it. You are in my thoughts and I am wishing you the best on your house projects and your new arty ideas! ♥Kathy

  11. I admire your boundless energy!
    De beste wensen for your new projects
    and Mooie Herfst:)

  12. Dearest Anna, im soo excited about all the new changes you will be making! Looking forward to it! I'll be waiting for them patiently. :) Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!

  13. REUZE BENIEUWD naar hoe dit allemaal gaat uitpakken . Ik wilde "maar" één kamer gaan doen in de zomervakantie . Toen het zomervakantie was wist ik niet hoe snel ik het weer moest afkappen . Ik overzag het opeens helemaal niet meer . Wel besloten dat ik eerst een planning ga maken en HULP ga inschakelen .
    Ik wens je alle succes en stap voor stap !

  14. Dearest sweet Anna, i know that you are busy with lots going. Thank YOU so much for taking your time and visiting me on my space! I am truely grateful for the love and support you send my way!
    The ipad cozy is my very first and i didn't make any for my little shop yet. But the iPad/iphone cozy(s) will be next on my list after im done with a few camera cozy(s). :) If you are interested in a personalize ipad cozy, drop me an email and i will whip one up for you. Have a lovely merry happy sunday and love to you!

  15. Dearest Lillalotta,

    I have to ask about the gorgeous black and white striped socks that are in the picture you have on the top of your blog. What is their story, where do they come from and did you possibly make them yourself? I love to come to your blog and see them, usually I keep staring at them for a while before starting to read your latest posts.

    Best wishes from Iceland,


  16. My list kind of looks like yours - with out the shop orders added to it. Wow-I'm pretty sure you will complete yours faster then mine. :)

  17. dear Anna, it was so nice of yo to visit me, despite the little free time that you have. i am amazed at all the thing you intend to do, where do you find all this energy ?
    i knew you would love that little painted bunny my daughter is giving away in her blog. Hope you win ^_^
    aending you hugs and love,

  18. You have lots to do! Make your list and don't let anything distract you. The sooner you get done the sooner we get to have you back to us :-)

    Energy, energy! :-)
