Post No. 2239.....My FAVOURITES of 2017 and more

Elizabeth hosts the Second Look on the 2nd  on every second day of each month.
 I thought that is a good occacion to choose my very own  
TOP 10 of 2017.
So here they are in no special order.







































Thank you for all your support - your visits - your comments - your blogger friendship!

 For T-S-F-T this week I want to tell you about the very yummie
homemade Chai Latte Syrup 
 we got from a girl-friend of our daughter for Christmas -
1-2 teaspoons full in warm milk is just so yummie.
I prefer it with just hot water as well.



HAPPY T-DAY GIRLS!

And I have a new adventure with digital drawing
at the tablet PC. I am testing some free apps which are really -
very interesting - my gosh there is such a load of them out there.
I came up with my very first painting - I did
it in  PaperOne and MediBang Paint and photo-edited it in
my trusty PhotoFiltre programme. As I show my digital work mostly on my Digital Blog  you have to visit there to see the completed painting if you are interested, since here  is just a photo of my progress on the tablet PC.


And I decided to make ATCs again this year, I made hundreds of them in the past by using stamps ( HERE) and thought maybe I can do them now without using stamps. I will participate with this handpainted and handwritten ATC in 
Daniela Rogall's Think Monday Think ATC Challenge

  2. What a fabulous look back at 2017. I remember all of these except the doll. Each was beautiful in its own right. And a great way to present a review and still participate in Second on the 2nd.

    Wow, that Chai syrup looks rich. I bet it tastes good, too. I made Chai once and it takes many ingredients. Thanks for sharing it with us for T this Tuesday and thank your daughter for sharing it, too.

    Now I'm off to visit your digital blog. I guess I need to join the 21st century, don't I? I love your new tablet. I'd say your husband is a keeper!

  3. Liebe Susi,
    Deine Top 10 und auch das ATC sind total klasse. Ich bin von der Leichtigkeit in Deinen Bilder faszinierd. Vielleicht kann ich mir da von Dir ein bisschen was abgucken. Meine Bilder sind denke ich etwas schwermütiger. Aber so hat jede von uns ihren eigenen Stil. Es ist toll sich gegenseitig zu inspirieren und ich schaue immer wieder gerne bei Dir vorbei. Das Du wieder öfter ATCs machen möchtest finde ich super und freue mich sehr auf weitere ATCs bei Think Monday, Think ATC von Dir.
    Vielen Dank fürs Mitmachen und verlinken.
    Sei lieb gegrüßt

  5. Nice look back Susi. You made so many great pages how did you chose only 10? I love seeing your digi pages too. And cool ATCs. I got a message from Daniela yesterday and I was thinking about joining in, but first I have to make some cards. :) And lastly your chai syrup looks great. I love a chai latte. I need to look for a recipe and try it. Happy T day and Happy January 2018. hugs-Erika

  10. Wow, I love your Top 10 and you have so many exciting things planned for this year! Your handwritten and painted ATCs is a great challenge and a great way to fulfil one of your wishes to to paint more - perfect 😁. Your feather ATC is so beautiful with the poem and the little pop of red from the heart 💓. With the digital painting too it looks like you are all set for a creative year - yippee! Wishing you and yours much happiness for 2018! The Chai Tea Syrup sounds so yummy in the hot milk too, what a wonderful gift - sending you Happy T Day wishes too my friend! J 😊

  11. Great artwork Susi, but it must have been hard to choose just 10.
    Had a look at some of your stamped ATCs, you really are good at them and today's is fabulous too.
    Enjoy your chai syrup - something I haven't tried.

  12. Das war sicher schwierig, eine Auswahl für eine Top-Liste von deinen Werken zu erstellen, sind sie doch ALLE top! Zwei davon kann ich mein eigen nennen (aus deinem Letterjournal), und darauf bin ich sehr stolz!
    Toll, du hast dir einiges vorgenommen für 2018 - digitales Malen und ATC's, bin schon sehr gespannt! Ich habe das digitale Malen wieder aufgegeben :) - es ist mir zu schwierig. Nun werde ich deinen Link besuchen.
    Knuddel, Rike 😊

  13. wow,was für wunderschöne werke von dir,das püppchen ist auch süss,ich möchte unbedingt auch wieder püppchen machen.
    deine bilder haben eine schöne leichtigkeit was ich sehr bei dir mag,auch das atc ist super.

  14. Schön, schöner, am schönsten! Eins deiner Bilder hat mich doch jetzt richtig inspiriert und eine Idee wächst...
    Ach Susi, ATCs.... Tausende habe ich schon gemacht, jetzt gar nicht mehr, aber dir wünsch ich viel Spaß dabei.

  17. Wonderful! I love your Top 10 art pieces. They're all really beautiful though I have to admit I am very partial to the magical tea cup. I wish I had one too, lol. You are so prolific with your art and it always looks so good! Happy new year to you! I hope it's a wonderful one for you and your family :)

  25. Wow, tolle Projekte hast du ausgewählt. Nur 10 aus deinen vielen tollen Werken auszuwählen, wäre mir echt schwer gefallen. Bei mir hätte es Top 100 heißen müssen...ich bin eben Fan von den tollen Sachen, die du machst.

  28. All your gorgeous art pages are so warm and Spring-like. Maybe I'm wishful thinking as it is quite BRRRR here. A hot cup of chai tea would be perfect right now. Will have to go look at that recipe. Thanks for sharing and have a Happy and Creative New Year.

  29. Beautiful ATC Susi! Digital art has never interested me ..I guess i just like the tactile feel of whatever i'am creating.. that is part of the enjoyment for me.. I'll have to pop over to your blog and see what you made. Happy New years and T day hugs ! deb

  30. So many beautiful projects this year! I don't remember some of these so I had to have a closer look. The journals and that doll really caught my eye! Beautiful Susi! You are so talented!!
    Happy New Year and Happy Tea Day,

  38. eine tolle auswahl hast du getroffen! die blumen mochte ich auch total gerne und jetzt gefällt mir noch die tulpenseite mit den noten ganz besonders gut.
    ATC's haben ein komisches format für mich, kein spielkarten- und kein postkartenformat. schneidest du sie selbst zu?
    auf jeden fall viel spaß in 2018 mit all deinen tollen projekten!
    liebe grüße

  39. Lauter wunderschöne Kunstwerke sind das Susi, eine genußvolle Rückschau.
    Dieser Chai-Latte-Sirup hört sich verlockend an und schmeckt sicher super.
    Alles Liebe und ein gesundes, kreatives Neues Jahr.
    Liebe Grüße

  43. Oh my gosh, Susi, what a wonderful look through your colourful year and some of your wonderful creations! I'm hard pushed to pick a favourite, but I *do* love dragonflies, but I like tea even better! - so those are my faves ;D But I do really like die kleine puppe too - like I said, hard to choose! The ATC looks fab, and I love the sentiment on it - might give some non-stamped ones a go too, like you I did them massively over ten years ago, but this is a really good idea. Have a good weekend, meine blogfreundin, and I look forward to all the other brilliant stuff I know you'll be making in 2018!

  44. was für schöne so süsse Werke das sind und auch die Puppe die du ausgewählt hast, alle waren toll von 2017 muss ich dir sagen! Mach weiter so und es wird wieder spannend werden was du dieses Jahr kreatives ziegen wirst!
    Was alles gibt wie dieses Getränk!
    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Sonntag!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  45. Eine traumhaft schöne Auswahl, liebe Susi. Deine Werke sind immer was ganz Besonderes und gefallen mir wahnsinnig gut.

    Auch Dein ATC ist wieder unglaublich schön geworden, Deine Handschrift ist zauberhaft.

  46. Happy 2018, Susi! Loving your art as always! What a pleasant surprise to see you are joining TMTA for ATC's! That feather ATC quote is great. I made a ROLO (ARC) since we are allowed to do that now and so thankful as I need to add to my ScriptureDex. Looking forward to seeing even more of your stuff! xoxoxo

    ReplyDelete
  47. So good to see your favourites, one or three are also mine! Your ATC is gorgeous too! The Chai latte sounds good! I have really been so far behind with blog visiting so may I wish you a very Happy and creative New Year! Looking forward to taking part in some challenges once I have caught up! Hugs, Chrisxx

  49. Hi Susi, I'm doing a bit of reviewing myself so just had to stop by. I love all your journal pages and I'm hoping to do more myself this year. My poor journals have been somewhat neglected. Have a lovely creative week. Oh and meant to say love the dolly too. Angela xXx

  50. Liebe Susi,
    die TOP 10 Deiner Werke aus 2017 hätte ich nicht aussuchen können, dafür gefallen mir alle Deine Arbeiten zu gut.

    Ich wünsche Dir einen guten Start in die Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße
