Surprise for Lolo and a new site!

Preparing a surprise for Lolo!

When Marja and I were in Hongkong we had a card made for her.

Here is the making of.........

Hard to see at the video, but in the last moment she puts in a for luck. Very important!

I have been very busy these last few days making a website for my friend Martin.

The wonderful artist, who made me this painting.

Please visit his new site. It is in Dutch, but the pictures speak for themselves. (look at schilderijen and click the thumbnails).

Please don't forget to leave a comment in his guestbook (gastenboek in Dutch, you will find it under contact).

he is new at this so I guess he would love comments, don't we all.........

Well I do. Have a nice Sunday!


  1. I'm speechless!!!!
    I held my beautiful card in front of me and followed the artist along. I'm so touched you both did this for me!
    It will go in my Thankful Thursday post with the other lovely things. Thank you Marianne and Marja!

    The links to martin's site don't work for some reason. I want to go and support him :)

    Now I'm on my way to see Beaudor's mum and to give her a hug!


  2. what a beautiful gesture. lolo so deserves this, she is the sweetest lady.

  3. What a fun and very sweet gift to Lolo. I loved watching Sandy make the card and explain it as she went. Loved the hair dryer at the end too! LOL
