My most rapid pages ever.

It took me just 10 minutes to make this spread - just some colors and my fingers and the great 
Pentel brush pen for writing the Einstein quote. /Nicht mal 10 Minuten hat mich diese Doppelseite gekostet, nur ein paar Farben, meine Finger und den tollen Pinselstift von Pentel um das Einstein Zitat zu schreiben.

Art Journal Journey

Wishing a happy T-Day to all my friends at TSFT!
I am still trying to loose weight.
I managed to loose about 17 lb ( 8 kg) since last september, but it is still hard for me and some days I can't help eating chocolate or take cake and so on....
But I am glad and proud about it and so hope I will manage to keep my weight now.
I am happy that my friends helped me with many delicious recipes and tips.

This is sourkraut with curry and coconut milk and boiled potatoes -
a vegan artsy blogfriend recommented it to me
and I take the best drink to lose weight :  water


  1. Love your quick journal spread with the great quote! The food looks good, too, you have made me hungry again! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Love the bright colours, food looks yummy too.

  3. I envy your beautiful handwriting ;) The guote is brilliant from the brilliant man, and your spread clever and fabulous.
    Hugs xx

  4. Very rapid but so beautiful!
    Ich liebe Sauerkraut:))

  5. Congratulations on losing 17lb since last September, that is not easy.
    I like the idea of a quick page - 10 minutes! - a happy, jolly page and a quote to inspire us.

  6. I can't even get my book open in 10 minutes (grin). You did a wonderful job. Your fingerprints remind me of eggs.

    Delighted to read you have lost 17 lbs. And to think you did it over the worst months, when Christmas and New Year celebrations abound. Also, winter is the time of year when your body naturally wants you to put on weight to fend off the cold. So this is quite an accomplishment.

    Thanks for sharing your vegan meal and healthy water with us for T this Tuesday.

  7. Wow, congrats on the weight loss, I'm so happy for you!! Beautiful page today, your blended colours are just incredible! hugs :)

  8. Wonderful colourful pages Susi,I love your handwriting too ;)
    Food looks yummy.....ah the perils of trying to refuse cake and chocolate :/
    Big hugs

  10. Beautiful quick page, Susi!. Love the colour combo.

  11. WOWEE on your book pages they look wonderful and your beautiful writing I thought was added digitally!
    Congrats on losing that much weight...that is no small thing at all!
    We L♥ve sauerkraut ... I have never thought about making it with curry.
    Water is my favorite drink too
    With warmer weather coming I find it easier to eat lighter.
    Happy T Day liebe Susi!

  12. Oh I wanted to share that we have Linda McCartney's Home Cooking Vegetarian Cookbook (Sir Paul's first wife) and I have been making her vegetarian sauerkraut since the 80's = Yum!

  13. It takes me more than 10 minutes to decide what I want to do in my altered book and here you have created a beautiful page in just that time. I like to paint with my "natural" tools (fingers), too! Happy T Day!

  14. So beautiful Susi !!! I like very much the colours used!! I may say that I´ll take more than 10 minutes doing a little page,, that great!! big hugs.

  15. Hallo Susi,
    ganz egal ob schnell oder noch schneller, es ist
    eine tolle Seite. Sauerkraut ist ok, aber mit Curry und Kokosmilch hui......
    LG Sadie

  16. gorgeous page- and your handwriting is beautiful Susi! Congrats on losing the weight and eating more healthy, and a happy T day too!

  17. What a great page, so quickly done. I think the spontaneous feeling comes through.

    We like sauerkraut, we like curry and coconut milk. Never thought of combining them. I think I'll have to give it a try.

  19. Water is always a good choice :) Sounds like you are definning headed in the direction you want. Happy TSFT!

  20. Awesome journal spread!! Love the colors and quote!
    I know that it would be much easier to loose some weight if I gave up my liquid calories for water. :) Good for you!!
    Happy T Day!

  21. Congrats on your weight loss Susi and great pages too.

  22. I have to try this, looks awesome (the spread I mean, but the food looks yummie too :))

  23. wonderful quote on your fun journal page
    wow 17 pounds is a lot, congratulations
    i think apples are a great food when hungry or craving sweets
    and so darn good for us

  24. Terrific quick spread Susi with great colours.

    Hope your weight loss is going well

    Love Chrissie xx

  25. Diese Seite gefällt mir ja wieder sehr :)
    Und der Spruch erst! Den werd ich mir
    irgendwie verhübschen und an die Wand
    hängen. Der hat was :))
    Falls Du Dich täglich dazu aufraffen könntest,
    Dich eine Stunde zu bewegen (Walken,
    Schwimmen, Radfahren etc.) dann darfst Du
    täglich ohne Gewissensbisse einen Riegel
    Schokolade essen, den kriegt Dein Körper
    gar nicht mehr richtig mit, weil er vorher
    wieder abtrainiert wird :))

    Liebe Grüße

  26. Very beautiful!!! I am so happy for your weight loss. The best thing is to allow yourself a little chocolate, cake, etc., but just a small amount. This way you enjoy it but it doesn't affect you in a negative way. Sending you a warm hug from a chilly and rainy Montreal, Canada. :)

  27. Great page Susi, can't believe it only took 10 mins.
    Well done on your weight loss, it is hard when you love chocolate and cake.
    Avril xx

    I "should" be watching what I eat...hummm. Happy T-Day! :)

  29. Beautiful colours and well done for the time!

  30. Amazing what you can do in 10 minutes Susi, some great colours! Glad you still losing weight, your recipe sounds very yummy :-) xxx

  31. Fantastic pages Susi, it would take me that long to think about it. Congratulations on loosing the weight, its hard to resist treats like the chocolate.
    Yvonne xx

  32. A fabulous page Susi and great colours. Sometimes the best ones are the ones we don't stress over. Well done on keeping motivated with your weight-it's not easy but every little step helps and sounds like you have done so good so far
