ICAD or a challenge completed

This year I participated for the first time in the challenge ICAD of daisyyellowart.com
There are only two days left of the challenge and I am kind of sad, proud, and inspired altogether.
Sad that it is over soon, proud of myself that I have done it up to the end
and inspired to do more art journaling, icads or anything likewise on a daily base.
There have been so many beautiful, awesome and pretty cards. I have met so many lovely people, I received so many kind words, inspiring comments and even received an icad from one of the participants of America. I can only tink of one word precribing all of this.
Wow to all of us.
It was a great time and I will be participating again next year for sure.

Below please find a few of my icads in the meantime.
As I am only working afternoons as from September, I will have lots of me time for a while and I will use it exclusively for me, my daly art journaling and for writing again, which I have negelected a bit in the past few month.

Thanks again to all of the icad group members. Well done to all of you and keep beingdaisyyellowart.com inspired.
I for sure will be…..

Hi everybody

I am so proud and pleased that my blog, which is really close up and personal, finds so many readers who appreciates my open heart writing.

It is almost 1 year now, that my son died in a car crash and writing about it as it is, helped me a lot, but getting so many comments and lovely thoughts from all over the world, from ‘strangers’ are so wonderful and you all helped me pushing through every step I had to go without my beloved son. I am really, really grateful for that and I hope, I am also an inspiration and help for other families going through the same or similar trauma and nightmares.

Thank you very much and

be blessed.

Love and light
