A new theme at TIOT's - ^^CHILDREN^^.
I thought I could try to learn to sketch the face of kids or babies for this event - so I searched for a how to and found this very simple and easy instructions.

I sketched a small  and a big one and cut both out to use them as  masks on my pages.

Inspired by something I did in April (shown  here ) I came up with this spread in my round journal.

Embracing the inner child is something that brings you freedom and peace.

 I hope to see you at the TIOT's Challenge -CHILDREN-as well as at 
ART JOURNAL JOURNEY - Nature's Wonders
(Children are "Wonders" for sure)

I want to invite to a simple veggie pot for lunch. I drink cold ginger tea with lemon to it.
Veggie soups are my secret weapon now for bringing the weight loss forward.
They fill me enough and as I experiment with very different spices  - it gets not boring at all.
I  lost two more kilos since June .....it's still hard but I will not give up .
My inner child would eat chocolate and icecream and junk food the whole day I think...lol.

 Happy T-Day, TIOT's and AJJ!!!


  1. Lovely journal pages, so fun with your inner child, I hope it doesn't want to do as many naughty things as mine does! But veggie soups are good. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. I love the journal pages Susi, the eyes are super and your inner child must be a very interesting little person having fun.
    Its a delicious looking soup and congratulations on the weight loss.
    Happy T day

  3. You are doing SO well on your diet and you have truly stifled that inner child who would go nuts eating junk food and chocolate.

    Your inner child has been quite busy, because this is a wonderful entry for TioT. The masks worked well and I suspect we will see more of these inner children in the next two weeks.

    I'm so glad you shared your veggies soup with us, because I could eat this all day long. It looks wonderful in the photo, and the ginger tea sounds wonderful, too.

    Thanks for sharing your art, your veggies, and your ginger tea with lemon with us for T this Tuesday. And congrats again on your continued weight loss.

  4. schön, dass du deinem inneren kind einen tollen, bunten eintrag gewidmet hast... das mag es sicher noch mehr wie ein eis! toll, dass du so standhaft bist! knuddels, tina

  5. Oh Susi! How wonderful this is! I'm sure my inner child tries to take over sometimes! I could certainly enjoy a bowl of your soup! Having to concentrate on staying 'on track' with my eating at the moment! Happy T day! Hugs, Chrisx

  6. A wonderful post Susi with the amazing drawings of the faces. Nice healthy meal as well-keep at it

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. Love your doll like faces Susi-great journal pages too! Congrats on continuing your weight loss! Your veggie soup looks really yummy and now I'll probably be thinking of making soup too:) Happy T day!

  8. Your sweet drawings look like doll heads and work very nicely in your round journal.
    Vegetarian meals are always my favorites and you are right about adding spices which are very satisfying and delicious.
    My inner child loves chocolate too and tells herself that if it's dark (at least 72%) it's healthy ;-) *gg*
    Happy T Day oxo

  9. Love the doll like faces Susi! Great idea with the quote too. Hugs!

  10. Love the doll like faces Susi! Great idea with the quote too. Hugs!

  11. Lovely sketches
    Impressive job
    Those who don't let die their inner child live the life with its true essence

  12. Liebe Susi,
    sehr gut gelungen.
    Das innere Kind willkommen heißen, so sollte es sein.
    Ich mag auch gerne Suppen, aber so Gemüsecremesuppen&Co sind schon auch lecker. Vor ein paar Tagen haben ich mir eine nur mit Kräutern gemacht, die hat ecklig ausgeschaut - grünlich, aber sie war echt gut und gesund ;-)
    Schönen Abend noch und keine Gedanken an Eis und Junk food verschwenden.

  13. I love soup and can't wait for it to get a bit cooler so I can start making it. I never thought of it as a good way to lose weight but I need to try that. Congrats on dropping a little more weight. :) The soup looks delicious. And I love the child's head. You really caught it perfectly. Strange, I never thought about how different it is from an adult head. I always thought it was just features but now I think not. Have a wonderful T day. Hugs-Erika

  14. A fabulous journal spread Susi, love the idea of the inner child.
    Soup looks delicious, I always add pulses or beans to my soups too.
    Well done on the continued weight loss.

  15. Wonderful post Susi, your veggie soup looks and sounds delightful. Soups are fantastic for weight loss, and you have done fantastic....good job!
    Love you inner child journal pages.
    Happy T-day

  16. Liebe Susi, Du sprichst mir so aus der Seele ! Wenn wir uns nicht mit allen Facetten annehmen sind wir doch irgendwie nicht ganz. Der erstenSchritt, das bedingungslose Umarmen unserer Anteile, auch unserer Kinder.
    Bin schon sehr gespannt, wie es weiter geht, bei dir und diesem Thema :)

    Ich sende Dir viele liebe Knuddel und Grüße und ein extra Bussi für Dein inneres Kind :)
    Alles Liebe
    Deine Erika
