It's been a long time since my last post but I was enjoying a three week vacation with hubby,
including one week in Samos, Greece.
Greece was yet again wonderful: lovely sunny days, beautiful scenery, gorgeous quiet beaches, need I say more? We really enjoyed this week together!
Took a lot of photo's so beware of all the vacation layouts!LOL!
But first let me start with a project I made for someone at work who just retired.
We, the only 6 girls of the company, thought it would be fun to dress up as old women(didn't need much changes!LOL) and organized a quiz, sketches, prizes, etc. for his fare-well party.
The lovely lady in the beige flower dress is me.
Notice the white socks and handbag!LOL
The beautiful(..) lady in the middle is 'ma Flodder', a famous actress in a popular TV show, the Dutch girls here will probably recognize her!
Oh well, let me tell you, we had a lot of fun together!
About this project:
I used a wooden frame and painted it with gesso and crackle medium to get the old look.
Decorated it with a lot of 'stuff' from the company:
cocoa beans, coins from Ghana( this is where most beans come from),
cocoa butter, the company logo and some old lab journaling.
Too bad we don't make chocolates but only sell the butter!LOL
(My job is to analyze the whole process, from the beans to the butter, in the lab).
It was quite a challenge to make this with no flowers,
but he loved this gift with the photo of the "girls"!
here are some details:
Have a wonderful day!
