Today I must say like Jeannine of four rooms blog who wrote;

So much to “report” but my inner-reporter is – surprisingly – feeling very quiet at the moment. I think I’m also still a little rusty from my blogging break.

I’ve come home from my holiday and celebrated Christmas with my family. Straight from a sandy beach wearing big sunglasses and straight into a white landscape made of out snow. Both beautiful views in their own way.

Now there are projects and this year to finish, photos to edit, posts to write, books to review, goals to set for 2010… I’m having a difficult time getting anything done when there is so much to do. Where to start? How to prioritize in this mess I create around me? I sat down and closed my mind for a while – just took some Art journal time, well – a lot of art journal time that is…

This is a “after Christmas and travel” collage in my current (altered book) Art Journal:

Look close – you’ll see some labels, wrapping papers, gift tags, bits of postcards, candy wrappers, a paper bag from the vacation, rub-ons, magazine images and random stickers and some decorative tape. Plus acrylic paint here and there of course!

Here is another page with a holiday collage:

This page might get some text later, but for today I’ll leave it like this.

One Year on Twitter

Ric of Voodoo Notes blog wrote a very geeky post about how she uses twitter and facebook. I thought it was great, and finally I understood these sites better. I am downloading the software TweetDeck. And I love it, and finally I “get” twitter after using it for almost a year. Let me know what you think about it if you’re on there.

I’m @iHanna of course.

Tomorrow another post, maybe I’ll have made some more planning by then…

Oh, don’t miss these below, some more detail images from my Art Journal; my favorite part (cropping out favorite parts, because I always want to crawl into other people’s collage and live there);

Finishing the 12 months of 2009 and thinking about new beginnings and plans for next year…

Maybe next year, just focus on one thing at a time;
