Hi dear visitors from everywhere, you are very welcomed, although I don´t feel like hosting very much. This week has not been my friend. You see a messy desk, even for me, because I really did not have the brain to do structured work. I am collecting stuff for a new project, which I hopefully can show next week.


A few days ago a very dear friend passed away – the night before his birthday. I made an art journal page for him as a sort of a requiem. You can read more about it here. Here it is:


Last but not least, our little Luna got problems with her teeth and could not really sleep well this weekend – nor could we. She got 5 (!) teeth pulled on Monday and kept me awake Monday night, because she vomited over the living room carpets 9 (!) times. Poor girl, I felt so sorry for her, but now I feel quite sorry for me being so tired.

See you next week, I hope in better shape.

  1. Aww Gabriele such a miserable week you have had (hugs) 😦 And poor Luna too (woof) 😦
    I do hope the coming days bring you all relief and peace 😉

  2. Oh Gabriele what a shock – huge condolences over the loss of your friend. I expect your journal page was a much needed therapy. And poor Luna (and you) – I hope this sorry week is well and truly over!

  3. Liebe Gabriele,
    du hattest wirklich keine gute Woche! Ich hoffe dass diese besser wird.
    WOW, du machst total schöne Sachen!
    Danke für deinen Besuch und Kommentar bei mir letzte Woche.
    Das Project Life ist im Prinzip ein fertiges System. Album, Page Protector’s und Journalingkarten gibt’s zu kaufen. Und dann gestaltet man mit Fotos und Geschreibsel sein ganz persönliches „Fototagebuch“…… was unheimlich viel Spaß macht 🙂
    Liebe Grüße Gaby #32

  4. Sounds like you have had such a difficult week. Hope all improves with Luna’s teeth removed. Sad about your friend, but lovely to do a book in his memory.

  5. Gabrielle, I do hope you are starting to ffel a bit less tired. What an awful week for you- your friends passing must have been such a shock. The book is an amazing idea for a memorial. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #21 xx

  6. I hope your week improves and Luna is better by now, rest and love, art when you can. Love the heart art for your friend what a beautiful way to show you loved him. My condolences.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda

  7. So sorry you had such a trying week 😦 The page your made is very beautiful! I think doing art helps in bad times to free up the emotions and let them fly away. Shel-PaperOctilloStudio #42

  8. Hi Gabriele, so sorry to read about your friend. It sounds as if it was unexpected; it’s always a shock when someone we love dies, but if we didn’t expect it at all, that makes it even worse. The art page you made is lovely and I hope it helped you to feel comforted. Wherever he is, I’m sure your friend is still making music!
    The collection on your desk looks interesting – hopefully you’ll feel more like making things this week and we will see the results in next weeks‘ WOYWW?
    I hope Luna is now better and that you can catch up with your sleep. X


  9. Oh dear! What a horrible week. My sincere condolences over the loss of your dear friend. Art can be a great way to deal with grief. It is very therapeutic.
    And then the problems with Luna. Poor thing! I hope she is feeling better now so that you can get a good nights‘ sleep.
    Have a great week,
    God bless,

  10. How very sad for you – I send my condolences to you. I think we sometimes paint at our best when we are in an emotional turmoil, it can help with the healing process – I produced some of my best and most sensitive work after I lost my father. I think your page is beautiful and a very special tribute to your friend.
