And thank you for the kindness and love shown me in the year gone.
It is a daily joy, to meet you here ,to read your comments, and to know
you have visited.
I hope you will go on honoring me with visits in this year just started !

Like this little bird, we will all go on building our "nests"  we will
hope for love to spread in the world, and pray for it to be a safer
place, for all humans, wherever in the world they live.

I will try to always remember this lovely words:


How much more joy we would feel , if each moment was treasured 
while living it, and not only in  back glance !

I wish us all a beautiful, healthy ,creative and joyfilled 2016

Hugs and love from Dorthe

This is so very beautiful Dorthe! I love what you did with that die and the way it picks up the colour of the bird and eggs, the little bird is delightful, surrounded by the subtle crackled elements!
A very happy New Year to you and your beautiful family and like you, my wish for the world is that it may become a safer place for all! xxx

Happy New Year dearest ♥
I have been a little unplugged with Mr M home for the long weekend.
Thank you for sharing your passion and heART with us.
You inspire and delight me again and again with your words and what you create.
The words on your lovely collage are perfect and so is every lovely detail. The tiny eggs look real and so sweet in the beautiful nest.
Here's to another year of friendship and connecting across the miles.

A very happy new year to you, Dorthe! I hope 2016 brings you all that you wish for.

Your bird hanging makes such a wonderful start to the year. Beautiful colours and gorgeous crackled texture, and I love how you've used the mixed media thinlits - absolutely charming - and a lovely thought about building safe nests for humankind.

Your bird art is so beautiful!. A lovely mix of colours and textures. I think art is a form of meditation - and if everyone had time to do a little creative stuff in their lives, there would be more peace in our world! Have a wonderful 2016 full of creative bliss.
