Let's build a SNOWMAN *** Art Journal Journey : Winter Wonderland

Happy new week to all of you!

I hope you are all well and you will join
our Winter Wonderland theme over at 

Art Journal Journey

I had fun building a snowman in my Altered Book for today.

I got mail from the lovely  Chrissie 
(  they delivered directly on foot and by horse-drawn carriage here in Austria this christmas I think-lol )

such a beautiful surprise for me

 Chrissie sent me this beautiful card and this delicious Peppermint & Liquorice
tea . A delicious infusion with real liquorice root for a sweet and fresh taste.
The teabags look like they were made out of organza - very luxury.

I tasted it immediately
-- that is a delicious
peppermint tea - gorgeos!! The flavour is superb!

Thank you dear Chrissie !

I want to say HELLO and wishing a Happy New Year to all my friends over at

 ( A little bit early since it is Monday and the friends will meet on Tuesday. )


  1. Oh Wow!! LOVEEEE that snowman on the page! And so glad to see that tea - It surely seems delicious! ;)

  2. Guten Morgen liebe Susi,

    Dein Schneemann schaut ja entzückend aus und passt hervorragend zu unserer heutigen Wetterlage. Wir haben nämlich den ersten Schnee für diesen Winter.

    Schöne Post hast Du bekommen, die Teebeutelchen schauen sehr verlockend aus.

    Alles Liebe
    wünscht Dir

  3. Dein Schneemann sieht sehr elegant aus, eine herrliche journal Seite. Das Winterfoto mit Teetasse sieht schön aus, aber kalt - heisse Tee für einen kalten Tag. Happy T Day on M day! Hugs, Valerie

  4. Yhank you for showing us your new journal page, it is veruy beautiful and artistic, like always, and I really enjoy your photo with the thee and the snowy background, this is the first snow that I see this winter it looks so nice befor anybody has been in it isn't it!!??

    Have a nice week !!


  5. Ohhh, that tea sounds amazing - but your view from the window looks awfully cold Susi!!
    Love your pages and your cute snowman :-)

  6. Liebe Susi,
    Dein Schneemann ist so schön! Er schaut heiter und glücklich in seine Winterlandschaft, jipppiiieee :)
    Du hast es Dir bei Schnee und Tee gemütlich gemacht! Ein Klaasiker im Winter, der nun endlich auch bei uns Einzug hält. Es schneit und friert und ich freue mich, im Warmen zu sein, bei einer schönen Tasse Kaffee.
    So startet das Jahr gemächlich, läßt Zeit auf das eine oder andere zu schauen und Pläne für das Kommende zu machen. (Ich kann es irgendwie nicht lassen :))

    Ich wünsche Dir von Herzen eine schönes Zeit, ein friedliches und gesundes 2016 und viele Tage der kreativen Art.

    Liebste Grüße
    Deine Erika

  9. Love your spread Susi and it made me wondered if we will see a snowman at all this year with the unseasonal weather--I hope so :)

    Love Chrissie xx

  19. This is so charming, I like how you first showed the right hand page then the snowman built on the left.
    Lovely frosty view from your window.
    One present I sent last year took seven months to arrive!

  20. Beautiful Susi, love the frosted colors!!

  21. OH what a lovely view for that special tea in their silky teabags!
    Such happy mail.
    Your snowman pages are beyond charming liebe Susi!
    The berry branch arms are extra fun too.
    Happy T Day...I will be ready on Tuesday oxo

  22. A beautiful page for the happy snowman Susi and I love the setting for you freshly brewed tea.

  23. Somehow I thought I left a comment last night (night to me), but obviously it's not there. I was really drawn in by your fun snowman. Such a delight to see your drawing skills aren't limited to human faces.

    I was also impressed with that tea. Silk tea bags must be really wonderful, and I'm sure you will save them for something mixed media, too. Had to laugh at the comment about the Austrian PO being sent by foot or carriage. I used to think that with our PO, too. I'm sure you will agree that the wait was truly worth it.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely art, the card, the container of tea and your filled to the brim tea cup with us for T this Tuesday. It is a beautiful cup with a background of a true winter scene.

  24. had to pop in for another look at your sweet snowman, and to wish you a happy T day too!

  25. That tea sounds yummy and sipping it with that beautiful view--as long as you can stay inside :) --is divine! Love your AJJ snowman, too! Happy T Day!

  26. Luxurious sounding tea to be sure...and what a fun snowman! you need a hot cup of tea after building a snowman! his big nose makes me smile... :)
    happy T day, and New Year!

  27. Your peppermint tea with the snowy scene in the background makes me feel cozy :) I love your snowman. Happy T Tuesday!

  28. Nothing tastes better than a gift from a friend!
    What a sweet snowman. I made it around this week. Happy T-Day! :)

  29. I adore your snowman journal page!!
    Happy T day...way late!

  30. Lovely pages Susi!How sweet of Chrissie sending you tea!Happy T day:)!
