Art Journal Challenge #28 and a wonderful surprise!

This week's prompt is: goal of the week. What do you want to achieve or do this week? Something teeny, something big...physical, emotional...set a goal for yourself and maybe pin your card up somewhere during the week to serve as a reminder!
Emily is back with her own challenge this week, after having great substitutes for 3 weeks! Ok, 1 goal, pretty hard...... have one, but..... as the back of the card says.. Do I find time?? No clue.......
I hope you can read the journaling, it is about all the challenges on the www, I really would like to do, don't have to, I know, but..... I want to! What I also want is time, ME time, which I don't have that much off at the moment, because Anouk broke her wrist,so she needs help with almost everything, we got zillions of appointments, Marloes picks blueberries and I'm her driver, and...... maybe my goal should be...... Relax instead of wanting to scrapbook?? Don't know why, but the card is not what I wanted it to be, unfortunately....

And ...... the wonderful surprise....... Look what I found in my mailbox today?


A very dear friend sent me these gorgeous stamps!!!!!!! Just, simply as a RAK, because she thought I deserved it..... Thank you so much I. W., I've already told you, but this is just to much..... I will surely use them a lot, and think of you every time!!

I think your card looks great, but I totally understand how you feel. I finished mine and was like "Ugh...at least it's done!"

What an awesome RAK to get today! Those stamps are cool!

I think your card is great! Take care!

Your card is fantabulous!
I also share your feelings. I work 7 hour days & when I get home, being ill right now leaves me far too tired to do half the things i want to do. So many challenges out there but lack of energy & often motivation. But there are a few I always complete & my goal is to knuckle down & clear the desk to fit in a few more!!

marjolein, je gebruikte zeker één van die knoopjes, die we samen kochten? Die mooie stamps zijn dat zegels of stickers of ook knoopjes? A stamp is toch een postzegel?Mam.
