Life must go on....

Hi there Bloggers.
Life in Athens at the moment is very strange, this unrest and uncertainty is getting under everybodys' skin...The question is, what can we, plain citizens of this country do to change things? All we have is one vote, one vote, can that change the system? Can one vote change the way Greek politicians think?...We have far to go my friends...
All we can do is, try and remain positive through all this, I know its scrap some of the anger and fear away!!
I have a L.O. here of me and my darling all know he is away working and I miss him so much!
I used Nadias' sketch from Once Upon A Sketch and some Bo Bunny Paper...Welcome Home I think it was...Ironic,yes!
Nadia do forgive me,I just had to use a heart instead of a circle,,,I also changed the perspective of the papers a little...I love my misted panel at the bottom of the  heart.....I misted and then stamped and then journalled!!
Talking of journalling I am dabbling a little in art journalling...I have far to go and I am  going to risk a little and show the gals at the  Craft Barn  my page...a bit naive but anyway!!
By the way this is in my up-cycled home-made journal....the whiter page,the one on the left is  a craft shopping bag!
That is all for today ...maybe I will do some streaming tonight...
Chins up!


  1. Zeffy you are an excellent artist an am sure the Craft Barn will only be too pleased to see your gorgeous journal pages. As for the layout with your husband I love that you used a heart instead of a circle, beautiful page . Thank you so much for joining us at OUAS and good luck.


  2. I think your journal page is lovely, not too naive at all. I found your streaming channel and would love to join you next time. It was lovely to hear your voice. You sound so South African. Do you have a twitter account where you can let me know that you are about to stream?

  3. Hi Zeffy, yes there has been a bit on our news about Greece and your economy.. it is so worrying for you all i am sure.. i really hope things will improve, but i also think the world economy needs to be so careful in these times.. so yes keep your chin up... i love your layout on your husband... you have made the sketch your own with your special touches.. and your art journalling looks amazing.. i hope your art and craft is a good way of keeping busy and not letting things get you depressed... take care... love from Australia!!

  4. Καλησπέρα Zeffy κι ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ για την συμβουλή σου, αλλά τι νομίζεις, δεν πήρα τα χαρτάκια μου στο σαλόνι και μέχρι να γυρίσω να δω ο Βασιλάκης μου τα έκοψε στον trimmer!!!!! Χθες σε είδαμε λίγο στο ustream, ήταν και η Μαρία δίπλα μου : ) Πολύ όμορφο το layout και μου αρέσουν πολύ οι τεχνικές σου, ειδικά αυτό με το journaling!!! Πάντα κάτι έχουμε να μάθουμε από σένα Zeffy! Thank you so much for playing with us at OUAS!

  5. Hi zeffy, hope all is well with you being a grandma and all and i know how it is to have your husband away. As for greece, all is to scary for me. As you said and same for me, scrapbooking and crafting in general keeps me going. Gorgeous layout and also for your journal page. thanks for joining us at OUAS, channa

  6. First, Zeffy, I am very saddened for what is happening in your beautiful city today and to your are on my heart this day. I just watched the recorded stream and I am on the same page as you are about using up my stash of beautiful papers and supplies. Not over thinking the pages, just getting some scrapbooking accomplished. Love to you and yours..stay safe and be encouraged!
