Text at the back of the card:

…..his LOVE give me power! The way he looks at me, the way he talks to me, just being with him give me POWER! Even talking on the phone does. HE is MY husband, to love of my life, the one who I talk to when I have problems, the one who wraps his arms around me when I need that.

My love for him is endlessly, 4-ever.

Have a nice Saturday!

#3. Remember when…..DOM 05/17/2008

In my previous post, I was talking about the DOM challenge @ the ScrappersAnonimous-forum.
I finished 4 cards, but I found out I only published 2 cards.
So here are card nummer 3! Remember When…

The text at the back of the card:
I was spending hours and hours at my grandparents. Playing outside, working in the garden with grandpa, growing vegetables. Or with grandma, planting the most beautiful flowers. I still love to be with my grandparents. And I don’t want to think about losing them. They’re such an amazing couple. And I remember so many beautiful moments with them. I want them around me for many more years. So that they are able to meet my children (if I get pregnant), and spend hours and hours with them, just like I did.

This photo was taken when I was 2 years old I think, I’m sitting in the garden of my grandma. I so love this photo.

Okay up to post #4.

Hugs,

Why are there so many things on my “to do” list?
Want to get a pencil and decrease the list.
This year I started the DOM (Deck Of Me) on the ScrappersAnonimous forum [link on the right]
I finished only 4 cards…….I have to start with it and try to keep up with the other girls on the forum.
At this moment it is too hot to be on the attic and scrap there. Well, I could be there now ’cause the sun is allready gone. But hmmz where is that shoe that give me a kick and kicks me up the stairs……Yeah, you probably know….I can’t find the damn shoe.
This are the cards of the DOM I still have to make:
#5. A special moment
#6. What is or means HOME to you
#7. Count your blessings
#8. You are special to me
#9. Who or what do you miss
#10. Quiet
#11. Humor
#12. The best place on earth
#13. My best friend
#14. Colors
#15. Things I Love
#16. Nature
#17. Good Times
#18. Time to yourself
#19. Greetings from
#20. In School I Was

Yes, I know 16 cards that I have to make. Hope to start with it real soon 😀
Besides these cards I want to start scrapping our wedding-pictures.
And I want to make a mini-album with the photo I’ve made on the family-day in May 2007!

Why can’t I just leave everything as it is and start scrapping. Well, I think I’m missing something….there are many ideas spinning in my mind but there’s absolutely nothing coming out of my hands. Sometimes that’s really frustating :S

Well, tomorrow I have to work 😀  A little update about my new job! I really like it there. Love the things I have to do, it’s a great team of people 🙂 For the first time in my life I’m happy when I go to work and I return home happy after a day of work. So that’s really great.

Well, I think the shower is calling me now 🙂 After a long (I think) shower I’m going to sleep.
Good night for you all, sweet dreams!
Thank you all for visiting my Blog!

Hugs,

Just the two of us

<2 minutes of silence>
Wondering why? In the Netherlands on May 4 we held the Remembrance of the Ded. It commemorates all civilians and members of the armed forces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands who have dies in wars or peacekeeping missions since the outbreak of World War II.
Until 1961, the commemoration only related to the Dutch victims of World War II. Since 1961, the victims of other military conflicts (such as the Indonesian National Revolution in Indonesia) and peacekeeping missions (such as in Lebanon or Bosnia) are remembered on May 4 as well.

Traditionally, the main ceremonies are observed in Amsterdamat the national monument on Dam Square. This ceremony is usually attended by members of the cabinet and the royal family, military leaders, representatives of the resistance movement and other social groups. At 8:00 p.m., two minutes of silence are observed throughout the Netherlands. Since May 4 1994, the flags, having hung at half-staff during the day, are then hoisted to the sounds of the Wilhelmus, the Dutch national anthem. Since 2001 the new protocol says it’s okay to let the flag hang half-staff.

Although the main celebrations get the most attention from the media, there are ceremonies in other cities and places as well, such as the Waalsdorpervlakte near the Hague where many Dutch resistance fighters were executed during the war. In many towns, before or after the two minutes of silence, people gather around a monument, listen to speeches, and lay down flowers to remember the dead.

Tomorrow, on May 5, we (Dutch people) celebrate the liberation from the German occupation between 1940 and 1945.

I think it’s good to remember this! At school we learned a lot about the war and what happend. And I hope that this part of the Dutch history is still a part of the history classes these days.
Two years ago I was in our back garden with some friends at 8 p.m. and the children of the neighbours where just screaming and jelling at eachother. I thought I was exploding! Damn that really made me angry. But maybe it’s their parents mistake. My parents told me about the war and what these two minutes of silence mean. I hope to teach my children the same in the future.

Well, back to happier things! Back to my scrapdesk or at least to the giant heap of photos that are staring at me there. Do you recognize it? “please scrap me please scrap me, I want to be on a page in you album!!!!! PLEASE”

Well I hope you had a great weekend! I had!!!
Tomorrow back to work again after 5 days off 🙂

Hugs,
Mar
