Look at this wonderfull collage,-
would`nt it be fantastic to learn making something
like it yourself ?
If the answer is yes, you just have to go visit
and her


When you are there you can go on to www.mixedmediamania.ning.com
learning about making alters and schrines.
And oh there is more possibilities,-KC`s new online teaching is
Marketing Mindset, with a redused price running till 8/1 -10
Futhermore a live workshop starts in the new year,
where many of the most fantastic mixed media artists will teach.
Unfortunately it is not in my hand to join a workshop in USA,
but I already joined the Collagecamp, and the Mixedmediamania,
and had lots of fun,--learned many of KC`s secrets, and found many
new friends.
wonderfull workshops to follow.
Hope you are having some good dayes here before the next
partyday, celebrating the new year.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

They flew away!!!

The beautifull dayes of christmas flew away, far too quickly, and that did the
little family too. Allthough they were here for 4 dayes, times run,run,run.
and before you can even think, we are wawing goodby again, --I miss them



But christmass decorations stayes a little longer, to be enjoyed, and to give the
beginning of the winter awaiting us, a little glow.


This is my french chandelier filled with wonderfull soldered ornaments, and glass ornaments


The beautifull glass ornaments I got before christmas as a present from dear Mette,
a sweet friend and costumer.
Her mother is making the glass, and Mette is decorating it.
Aren`t they just wonderfull.
I love them Mette,-thank`s so much for your dear gifts.


They all has a sweet text, and a bit of gold,and can be hung all the year round.


It is monday, and I`m going to my studio to clean up a bit, and try to organice all
the bits and pieces, laying all around.
I hope you are all well , and that you had some wonderfull christmas dayes.
Wishing you a great monday dear friends.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

I love her!,-- and my first christmas decoration

When seeing this very tiny doll, put to sleep, in her beautifull "bed"
I had to have her.
My dear friend Nellie from Early Morning Thoughts had put her to sale
in HER SHOP , and I just "ran" to purchase this little wonder.
(sorry the pictures is a bit too light?

Look at this beauty ,-and I love the words ,together with this peacefull expression.

She will be with me for ever, dear Nellie--thankyou so much.

Thought I would show you my first decoration this year.
Seems I`m too bussy the last years to do something for in my home, untill we are long into December.
Here is a simpel decorated candle, on my dinnertable

And next to that, a white urn, with a white moss ball on top.
I had bought the moss many years ago, and now it was time to use it.
It is laid around a ball, and fastened with silver drath.

On top of the ball I placed a beautifull bird, made of Heather Pretty Petals
it is so lovely.



The wonderfull flowers, I got last spring ,from a very sweet costumer.
They have been used in many ballets in The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen.
And the big one here ,has been used in the Swan sea ballet.
Isn`t it fantastic? I´m only using them for special occations.



It is still not winter here, very warm for december,
------so strange.
Well I guess it will arrive this year too.

Wishing you all dear friends a wonderfull day, and evening.
Thanks so very much for every lovely and sweet comment on my blog.
Makes me happy.
