Live the Life ....

I am off to Vienna. I will visit relatives and play Shopping Queen Mum since my daughter  got money for her birthday and will spend it for new wardrobe and other essential  things that a teenager needs.

I don't know how long  she will need to spend all her money, 
but I hope that I am back on Thursday.
I will not survive a whole week of shopping.

Before I  leave I will share  a quick face on loose bookpage for

Linda's February theme over at 

inspired to do it in less than 15 minutes by this VIDEO .
O.k. - it took me 20 minutes all in all .

Please don't  miss me too much as I will not be around for commenting on the blogs 
but I would be happy to see many entries over at Art Journal Journey when I return .


( yes, that's my daughter and me - Shopping Queen
with Shopping Queen Mum)


  1. What a great photo, and such a beautiful daughter you have! She made your art pale in comparison.......LOL! I can't believe you painted such a wonderful face in 20 minutes!!

    Have fun being the Shopping Queen Mom!!!

  2. Julia sieht sehr schön aus, auch das 'schnell' Gesicht ist toll geworden. Have fun in Wien und mit den lieben Verwandten! Valerie

  3. Dein 20-Min Portrait haut mich doch glatt wieder um, es ist einfach umwerfend!
    Mehr sage ich jetzt gar nicht dazu, werde mir aber das Video noch ansehen, in der Hoffnung, dass dort Geheimnisse verraten werden, die mich dann vielleicht befähigen könnten, ein Gesicht dann nur halbwegs so gut zu malen wie du es kannst.
    Wie süß ihr Zwei! Ganz viel Spaß und Schnäppchen beim Shoppen wünsch ich euch!
    Auch ich genieße es immer sehr, mit meiner Tochter auf Einkaufstour zu gehen, dann finde ich auch immer was für mich. Ist leider nur viel zu selten.
    Liebe Grüße von Ulrike

  4. Liebe Susi,
    da wünsche ich euch viel Spaß, genießt die gemeinsame
    Zeit, ich bin überzeugt ihr werdet einiges finden.
    Eine sehr hübsche Tochter hast du, also aufpassen. ;-)
    Liebe Grüße und bis bald

  5. Jetzt hab ich glatt vergessen zu schreiben, dass dein
    Bild mega cool ist, so sagen doch die Teenies oder? ;-))

  6. Wowww, in 20 Minuten so eine schöne Seite? Das ist sooo toll geworden.
    Das Foto von euch ist sehr hübsch.

  7. What an impressive art entry. She is a beauty, but so is your daughter.

    I simply adore the photo of the two of you together. There would have been a time I could shop for a week, but now I'm sure it would get tiresome after a few days. Have fun in Vienna and enjoy your time away as the Shopping Queen Mum.

  8. Such a wonderful photo of you both looking so beautiful and happy together:-). Your trip to Vienna sounds lovely, I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time as you are both the Queens of shopping! Wow, how do you paint that fast?! And you have painted such a beauty, I love her expression she looks so at peace. Wishing you a fun week! J :-)

  9. beautiful portrait Susi!! You are really on a roll again with the new theme! Enjoy your family time in Vienna-and happy shopping.

  10. I love that photo Susi. I can see your eyes in your daughter-she is very beautiful. I have a 25 year old who still wants me to go shopping with her, and it is exhausting, so I hope your week is wonderful and not TOO much store time.I will miss your wonderful art-like today's fabulous face- but I know being shopping queen mom is important and great bonding time. Have a wonderful week. And hope you have a little fun yourself too! Hugs-Erika

  11. Its a beautiful page and a lovely photo of you and your daughter, Have a super time.

  22. Beautiful page and beautiful daughter.
    I hate shopping - did a lot of it when I had a teenage daughter now she gets to do it with her daughters.
    Really Susi - your lady is wonderful - 20 minutes? It would take me twenty minutes to decide if I want to do it or not!
