T stands for snowmen with hot drinks and art consultant dogs



A spread that is meant for
Art Journal Journey 
and for T-Stands-For-Tuesday

As I started this spread my art consultant dog Liyongo - left- had an eye on my work and gave me some advice.

 He saw immediatley that the reference snowman 
and the snowman in the journal were different.
He does not like this very much - he is good at tasks which require accuracy and attention to detail and has a highly developed ability for critical perception. Always good to have him on hand. He helps me a lot.

Thank you for calling by to see me, 
The comments you leave are always appreciated. 


  1. Wonderful journal pages, as always, and glad Liyongo is such a good help for you. The dogs are both very good looking, too! Happy T Day, Hugs, Valerie

  2. It is so good to see that your art consultants share your journaling even if they don't always like it!


  3. haha, dein liyongo (wie kommt man auf so einen namen? klingt aber gut!) scheint ja ein großer helfer zu sein... jedenfalls hast du das stock-Foto wunderschön umgesetzt! ich liebe ja Schneemänner und diese Collage ist ein traum. ich hoffe, der Kaffee ist kalt und bekommt ihm;)
    liebe grüße!!

  4. Too cute love the observation from your babies.xx

  5. The dogs in your studio made me laugh. My dog has become my new studio buddy, and she has a very good eye too. Of course she is also good at falling asleep and just snoring and making a lot of noise in there too to distract me. And your snowman is adorable! I hope that warm drink doesn't make him melt! Happy T day to you:)

  6. I think you have been so creative with this page-it's super! Funny how your pups do look like they are really concentrating on being your supervisors:):) Happy T day!

  7. Beautiful winter collage, love the snowman :) Your dogs are gorgeous, lucky that you have them to help you ! We have a cat, but I also love dogs. It's nice you have 2 so they can play together. Hugs, Shirleyxx

  8. Nice to have such a consultant in your art studio. He is probably wondering when his picture will be in your art. I think your snowman says "cold" perfectly!

  9. So cute! Jinx our cat has to check out everything coming out of the printer. He hears the printer going and no matter where in the house he is he comes dashing over to see whats coming out...too funny.Love your snowman! Happy Tday! Hugs! deb

  10. Wonderful page again Susi. Your birds are treasures for sure. Your dogs are amazing and obviously a great help with your artwork

    Love Chrissie xxx

  11. Beautiful snowman Susi, and it looks like you have some wonderful advisers helping you along the way! hugs :)

  12. Gorgeous snowman Susi and yes my arty director cat is also very critical of what I make too ha ha

    Love the snowman, awesome page!

  14. Fun advice you are getting your handsome assistant(s).
    Great snowman page liebe Susi.
    Happy T Day oxo

  15. what lovely dogs with approving glances I think of your lovely snow people

  16. Liyongo may be a great consultant, but I adore your precious snowman trying to get warm with the tea he is holding his mittens around. This is simply adorable.

    Love that rug under your desk chair. It is gorgeous, especially because I like the Statue of Liberty, which I got to climb before they shut it down after 9/11.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely snowman trying to get warm, your assistants, and your art studio with us for T this Tuesday.

  17. Looks like your studio has some serious critics in it! LOL Love the snowmen pages, hope you manage to stay warm indoors with the dogs. Happy T Tuesday to you! Annette

  18. LOL! A furry art critic is good to have around!!
    Lovely post!! Happy T-Day! :)

  19. I love your snowman....but it is still good to have a consultant to hand! Your dogs are beautiful - but I am sure you tell them that anyway! Hugs, Chrisx

  20. dein schneemann ist soooo knuffig,hoffentlich ist der cafe kalt.
    deine hunde sind eine pracht und der name lijongo hört sich klasse an.
    einen schönen abend noch,liebes.

    lieben gruß jenny

  22. Hmmm, well good to have this little 4 legged helper for sure (he looks lovely), but I have to disagree, - see I actually think your snowman is way nicer than the reference one (I just checked him out). I love your snowman's cute face, and he sure looks as if he can do with a nice warm cuppa..... lovely spread!

  23. Wonderful to see your lovely dogs. Especially Liyongo as he helps you. Your snowman is cute and colorful.

    Have a good week,

  24. a very handsome art consultant dog! adorable snowman...almost makes the cold worthwhile... ;) happy T day!

  25. Love your image Susi - the expression on the snowman's face is priceless. Love how Liyongo is your critic :-)

  26. A beautiful page- love your snowman sipping on a warm drink, love the snowflakes and the bird on his head. The circles in the Bg are nice....and I love your stamping mascot! A beautiful dog : )

  27. Hehe..good to see your consultants! An amazing page ..love the bird on the snowman and the snowman! :)

  28. Liebe Susi,

    Dein Schneemann verzaubert mich, so ein wundervolles Werk. Gesehen und gleich verliebt, einfach entzückend.

    Dickes Lob an Dich und Deinen Helfer !!! Zu schön diese Geschichte.

    Herzliche Grüße
    von Anke

  29. Süße Schneemann-Seite. Deine Beiden Beobachter sind aber auch zu knuddelig, schön die Beiden bei dir zu wissen, passen auf dich auf und tun der Seele gut.
    Liebe Grüße

  30. Love your snowman and your fur baby companions and advisers are adorable :)

  31. Well, I must say that I think on this occasion Liyongo is mistaken - your snowman is so much better than the source - full of character - a really lovely page. And seeing the dogs there ready to help made me happy in my heart - lovely to see.

  32. Love your art!I guess I am repeating myself.Love your fabulous dogs.I love dogs and cats!Happy belated T Day, dear!

  33. OMGoodness Susi! You had me giggling out loud as I imagined your pal with his glasses on,pointing to the things he thought needed work! I LOVE your furbabies!! Isn't it wonderful to have them so close at hand and to feel their love?! Thanks so much for the bright post to wake up to this early morn! xoxo
