Posting No. 2400

At Art Journal Journey we have fun with Halle's topic of


and at TRY IT ON TUESDAY we start a new fortnightly topic which is:


I tried to combine with  a spread meant for both challenges.

 We would be happy to see you at both Challenge blogs!
You know how much we appreciate your participation!

 Happy T-DAY to all the lovely TSFT girls!

I just enjoy grain coffee since caffeine does me not good.
I tested many different brands meanwhile and came up with two favourites .
Left is the instant type of grain coffee I favour and right is 
pour over grain coffee I love. 

For our new topic at MOO MANIA & MORE which starts 
on 12th of June at 6. 00 a.m.MEZ
I have also a spread to share today.


is our next theme and we would LOVE to see you joining our challenge !




  1. hast du da deinen mann mit verewigt? ♥♥♥ ein "keeper", wie die engländer sagen würden... sehr gut gefällt mir dieser eintrag wieder mit all seinen textur-details!! auch der sonneneintrag ist klasse, sehr beschwingt!
    eine tolle woche für dich, liebe susi :))

  2. I love the words you added to your first journal spread and all the fantastic texture layers. He looks a very handsome fellow as well.
    The other pages look fantastic as well, here comes the sun is a good theme for this time of the year.
    It was good to see your coffee choices as well.
    Happy T day wishes Susi.

  3. Wundervolle Kunstwerke für TIOT und für MMM, liebe Susi.
    Caro-Kaffee habe ich auch lange Zeit getrunken, er hat mir gut geschmeckt, aber ist kein Vergleich zu 'echtem' Kaffee

  4. Wonderful art, Susi - great to see your 'partner in crime', too - he looks very handsome :-) Good to see tomorrow's MMM challenge, too - somebody needs to send some of that sun our way - it's freezing here and VERY wet, and has been since mid April - like Autumn all over again. It's a joyful page - filled with happy images and memories/intentions!
    Have a great week.

  5. Wow Susi, such amazing art! I love your man's world piece, the layers and texture look fabulous and oh that stitching is a wonderful addition too 😀. Your sun page is stunning too, you have captured the happiness of sunshine perfectly in the colours and images! I've never heard of grain coffee, I don't drink caffeine either so these would be good alternatives, now all I have to do is like coffee ...lol 😉. I hope you are keeping well, take care and wishing you a happy T Day and wonderful week! Jo x

  6. Wonderful art today Susi. I wonder, is that your husband's photo in the man piece? And how did the graduation go? I hope all went well and it was a good time. And the sun piece is fantastic. We have had a couple of gorgeous days but no sun today. It is raining, but the good news is I don't have to go water my plants. Happy T day too. Hugs-Erika

  7. Servus Susi, Linde Kaffee - Kindheitserinnerungen, da waren vor 55 Jahren immer Spielfiguren für uns Kinder drinnen. Alle in weiß und Plastik, wir stritten uns darum. Hahahah

  8. LOVE it! So fun that you can combine challenges so seamlessly. I'm not a pre-planner so I don't often hit the mark on more than one.
    Happy T day!

  9. I like the words you used and the images you chose. They pair perfectly :)

    I like coffee and caffeine doesn't bother me. I've never seen (or maybe just not noticed) grain "coffees" but I'll look for it. I'd be fun to try something a bit different.

    Happy T Tuesday!

  10. Wie ich sehe, bist du auch in the mens world voll zu Hause...so toll die Texturen wieder!...ja, und die Sonne könnte so langsam auch mal wieder scheinen hier, es ist ein sehr wechselhafter Sommer heuer!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  11. eine wunderschöne doppelseite,ich mag die bilder und die tollen texturen,das sollte ich vieleicht auch mal angehen das thema partner.
    einen schönen tag noch,liebes.

  12. Oh Susi, your journal spreads are always wonderful!!!!!!!!! I love the first, personalised, one!!!!!!!!!!!! And the second one, for Moo Mania, is simply perfect!!!!!!! I love filter coffee too, but I need caffeine!!!!!! Hugs, my dearest friend.

  13. A fabulous masculine journal spread Susi, and your 'partner in crime' looks very handsome and I like the added quote. I love the sunny journal spread - especially the 'happy laughing sun' - although he's definitely hiding today.

  14. Beautiful pages and your coffees sound good!

  15. This is my second attempt to leave you a comment. I was by earlier and couldn't leave one. Blogger wouldn't accept it.

    The spread you created where you included Art Journal Journey was PERFECT. It was brilliant and flawless. Great colors and attention to detail. Isn't it wonderful when you can combine challenges? You make it look so easy, dear friend and co-admin.

    Your MM&M spread is wonderful, too. I really, really love the hand sewing you created. Of course, the heart spoke to me, too.

    I've never heard of vegan coffee before, or grain coffee. However, if I don't get my caffeine, I'm useless, so I'm totally impressed you gave up caffeine so easily. Even cutting back for me doesn't help. I end up having splitting headaches that don't go away until I have caffeine. Even Advil doesn't help.

    Thanks for sharing these incredible spreads AND your vegan coffees with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend. So glad you had time to visit.

  16. I do like your partner in crime , he looks like he could be quite mischievous!


  17. Your art pieces are lovely. The coffee looks delicious. Happy T-Day!

  18. Hello Beautiful!!
    You really are a great artist with every theme or challenge that comes your way, a nice page and with a great message!
    I love coffee beans, and that looks delicious! !

    Hugs and affections and health wishes for Mr. Liyongo !!
    And many blessings in your home and your friends very sincerely !! 😙💕

  19. "It's a Man's World" - that's a tough one, Susi. I have to think about it a bit. You did a great a job!

    I like "HERE COMES THE SUN," so maybe I'll try Moo Mania. I haven't even visited there yet. Does Moo Mania have anything to do with cows 😉?

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  20. I love this dramatic looking page Susi! I wonder if I will be able to join you at MM&M - this is a fabulous piece of inspiration! I am reducing my caffeine intake by drinking Decaffeinated coffee! I shall look out for these interesting looking drinks! Hugs, Chrisx

  21. Great quote, "No end to the road of creation", and great art journal page.
    Happy T Day!

  22. ah, der linde kaffee mit den schönen punkten!! und auch karokaffee erinnert mich an meine kindheit. heute bin ich nicht mehr so ein fan von ihnen...
    zwei schöne werke hast du wieder geschaffen. ich bewundere dich für deine ideen und texturen! da wir hier über pfingsten herrliches wetter hatten und ich ohne probleme den pc meiden konnte, gefällt mir dein sonniges bild besonders gut!
    liebe grüße

  23. Wonderful work Susi - love the top one and how cleverly you have combined the challenges. The sun page looks so cheerful and it is such a happy spread.

  24. Dear Susi , what a wonderful spread of your partner in crime and words to live by- the sewing is gorgeous, and the arrow -sign- too. Also your sunny creation is so filled with joy and happiness , even the sun is laughing :-) , and so are we when it shines !
    I too am not good with the caffeine , and could share a cup with you of the grain coffee ,lol. Wishing you a wonderful evening my friend. Biggest hugs to you and xxx

  25. Hallo Susi, super gemachte Seiten sind das wieder, sehr einfallsreich gestaltet. Wer ist der Typ auf der Männerseite? Ein Promi, kommt mir irgendwie bekannt vor? So ein markantes Aussehen vergißt man nicht.
    Die geschnipselte Sonnenseite ist super gemacht.
    Den Carokaffee liebe ich auch sehr, aber die Firma stellt die Produktion leider ein. Ich habe neulich noch 2 Dosen gekauft und schaue jetzt wo noch Restware zu bekommen ist. Schade, sie hatten das Rezept unseres alten Kathreiner Malzkaffees übernommen, den es leider auch nicht mehr gibt. Der Kaffee von Linde schmeckt mir zu bitter, da ist zuviel Zychorie drin.
    Vielleicht mag die junge Generation keinen Malzkaffee mehr oder kennt ihn nicht. Ich liebe ihn seit Kindertagen.
    Liebe Grüße und schöne Restwoche.

  26. oh wau! really love them both!love the colors and everything! You are really talented <3

  27. Susi these pages are great I love them, your page for it's a man's world is wonderful I like it a lot because it's not the typical page or card you could see it for this idea and the second one is so colourful and full of textures.

    I like coffee but I prefer tea, I'm always buying special kinds of tea, I cannot resit a hot cup or now with hot days a cold glass of tea. Hugs.

  28. Haha! Susi, your partner looks rather charming and has a lovely smile. I wonder if he is really your partner in crime? I see you have given him some black and orange kisses. Your pages are a great creation in orange and black.
    Oh look at the sun, laughing its head off! This is such a joyful collage, speaking of brilliant gardens and happy holidays. Again I love the way you have used colour here. You are a collaging genius.

  29. Beautiful art, Susi ...

    I really like the design of the last image.
    Makes me more excited when watching it

  30. I adore both of these pages Susi, wonderful textures and collage!
    Alison xx

  31. Ein wundervoller Mixed Media Hintergrund mit dieser Gaze oder Mull und die handgenähten Stiche darauf als super Details! Mir gefällt auch sehr die Farbkombination Orange-Schwarz-Weiß!
    Sehr originell ist die Collage mit der Sonne - im Herzen - und über Österreich! :) Und das alles für 2019 - brauchen wir sehr gut, nach diesem langen kalten Winter ohne Frühling!
    Linde Kaffe - ich habe als Kind die Figuren gesammelt (und als Erwachsene an einen Sammler weiterverkauft), und heute trinke ich Kathreiner Malzkaffee, falls ich mal Lust auf Kaffee habe. Den kann man bei uns im Spar noch kaufen, der schmeckt mir fast besser als der Linde. Darauf kommt fertige Sprühsahne aus der Dose (man muss sich's ja einfach machen, haha) - dann löffle ich mit Genuss!
    Wünsche dir einen schönen Sonntag und eine entspannte neue Woche! Knuddel Rike

  32. Guten Morgen, liebe Susi! Feinste Collagen wieder bei dir zu sehen. Ich mag besonders die untere mit ihren sonnigen Farben und den Textschnipseln :)

    Linde´s Kaffee, hmmm, den haben wir als Kinder getrunken und ich muss immer noch lächeln, wenn ich an ihn denke. Ich bin da heute leider nichts so konsequent und freue mich besonders zum Frühstück über Bohnenkaffee.

    Einen schönen Vollmond wünsche ich dir und sende liebe Grüße

  33. OOhh Susi !! This is a So so GORGEOUS Art page !! I looove it, so clever and interesting, the quote is fabulous, and love the wonderful background and the colours.The tissu and the sewing is great ! Don´t know these trademarks for your coffee, but sure they are delicious.
    Love your second spread art page too ! The layers are espectacular, very happy colours and sun, and fantastic heart !
    I wish you a very nice new week, take care my friend,
    Big hugs & besotillos, Caty

  34. Wow, your work is AMAZING!!

  35. Wow, there's a real drama to the Man's World page - it's hard to believe it's in such a small journal... it's definitely larger than life. Love the sunshine pages too - a great post altogether.
    Alison x

  36. Lovely and amazing artwork, that man is added beautifully to all the amazing textures.xx

  37. The texture on that first spread is a feast for my eyes. I love the stitching around the face. It makes the perfect focal point. Some gorgeous artwork this week, Susi.
    Happy Tea Day,

  38. dear Susi you are so talented in keeping up with your journal :)

    wonderful art and amazing theme

  39. Dear Susi, thank you for your sweetness , in sending me a note of caring - and wishing me a lovely weekend- I hope your week has started off in the most lovely and cosy way, for you. Sending you a hug - xoxo

  40. Tolle Ausarbeitungen, liebe Susi. Jedes für sich sieht fein aus und inspiriert.

    Den Caro-Kaffee mochte ich auch immer gerne trinken. Interessant finde ich, dass die Verpackung wie ich sie von früher her kenne, geblieben ist... sich nicht verändert hat.

    Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende und sende sonnige Grüße, Heidrun

  41. Liebe Susi,
    es mag sich komisch anhören, aber Deine Bilder haben auf mich eine derart große Wirkung, dass ich mich gleich besser, beschwingter fühle, wenn ich sie betrachte. (Nicht, dass ich mich vorher schlecht gefühlt hätte...) Es ist faszinierend, wie Du mit verschiedenen Stoffen eine stimmige Gesamtkomposition schaffst.
    Caro Kaffee trinke ich manchmal auch, wenn ich denke, ich habe schon zuviel Koffein. Und er schmeckt mir auch sehr gut.
    Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Sonntag.

    Viele liebe Grüße
