Post No. 2234 ♠ T - Stands - For - Tuesday

I want to show the wonderful gifts and cards I got from lovely blogfriends all over the world.
Thank you to Chris, Lillibelle, Linda Rosie and Wibsche.
You are so kind and made me happy my friends.

And we got the cookies all baked - the dogs were very busy. 

You can take some of the Kipferl if you like - decaf as always for me  .....
don't panic - the dogs drank just their water as always.

I didn't find much time for art but I made a very quick spread for  Sheila's theme at

I am always thrilled to find tutorials on YouTube for all I want to know or I want to learn about.
There are for example piles of  tutorials on learning to sketch, draw and  paint hands - it's amazing.
I decided to take time to learn more about sketching and drawing  next year, but there is always so much I want to learn - oh my gosh ! 

Merry Christmas and Cheers
specially to my friends over at  TSFT!

  1. a BEAUTIFUL and Happy Post, the cookies look yummy and the doggies are cute.xx[aNNie]🎄⛄

  2. OH how busy your dogs were - supervising your baking!! What a lovely group of cards you have received Susi. Loving your spread, and don't we always want to learn more but seldom have the time...

  3. It always feels nice when you receive Christmas cards and gifts. Especially if someone has made it themselves! They look fabulous! Just like your kipferl. I have never eaten it, but it looks very tasty and your dogs seem to like them! Ha,ha... I know what you mean, i also want to learn and do so much and so little time.... i like your spread a lot, love the hands you have practiced! That one left at the bottom of the page most! Merry Christmas to you and your family Susi! Cheers!!!

  4. du findest auch wirklich immer tolle tutorials auf YouTube, aktuell perfektionierst du offensichtlich die Hände:) sehr schön!
    ich werde heute auch meine ersten Kipferl rausbacken, der teig liegt schon ein paar tage im Kühlschrank. sohn #2 kommt, und wenn ich früher gebacken hätte, wär bestimmt schon alles wieder weg *g*. vanillekipferl sind einfach das beste!
    ich wünsch dir eine schöne Woche, um weihnachten rum lesen wir uns bestimmt nochmal:) liebe grüße!

  5. Merry Christmas Susi, the dogs are so cute-looking into the oven I am sure they smell all the goodies.
    I love You Tube too I taught myself the basic of hand spinning on there among many other things
    Happy T Day Kathy

  6. I had to laugh at your dogs and the cookies. Mine think I am baking cookies just for them also. :) And what a gorgeous collection of cards. You are truly blessed to have so many wonderful blog friends. And your journal page really gave you a great chance to practice your hand drawing. I like the one with the wine glass a lot. :) Perfect for a little holiday cheer. Hope you have a happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  7. Liebe Susi
    das glaub ich dir sehr gerne, dass du dich über
    solche Post freust ;-)
    Deine Zeichnung finde ich klasse, du bist einfach umtriebig
    und alles gelingt dir ;-)
    Ich nehme bitte ein Kipferl.
    Lg und noch einen schönen Tag.

  8. What lovely cards you have received. Love your digi collage with the dogs-I wonder if any cookies dropped for them? :) Yes, You Tube is so wonderful for learning anything! You did a great job sketching the hands in different positions- that can't be as easy as you have made it look. Happy T day to you and all the best for a Merry Christmas too!

  9. Wie cool, die Hand-Zeichnung hinter dem durchsichtigen Weinglas! Ja, Lernen ist immer gut und bringt uns weiter, und Youtube ist natürlich eine tolle Bereicherung!
    Früher musste man sich mühselig Literatur besorgen... es ist schon eine supergute Zeit heutzutage, dass man sich so schnell informieren und weiterbilden kann! Hhm, lecker Kipferl!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike, 'nur' mit Prellung

  10. Susi, it was good to see your friendly dogs in the photos. Our animals seem to love being around the kitchen, especially when there is cooking, and delicious things baking in the oven. Your photos made me smile today and bring me happy memories.
    Your journal pages look fantastic, I think we would all like a bit more time to learn more about our art and watch You Tube films.
    Happy T day and Holiday wishes.
    Yvonne xx

  11. Ah! Merry Christmas to you as well dear Susi!!
    What a beautiful post filled with wonderful gifts and cards from special friends and those beautiful dogs of yours- I just love their sweet faces!
    Cookies- yummy for sure! Mine are done as well,can't get them out of here fast enough-before I add anymore weight on my hips! heehee
    And I must tell you, not only do I love the hands studies you have been creating, but I LOVE your thirst for more knowledge! I think it is awesome and so inspiring the way you visit , practice and learn from YouTube! You really do make me want to do less of other things and more watching myself! heehee

    Merry Christmas dear friend! May the holidays bring you and your family mush joy, heath and all good things! Say a special hello to your brother when you visit!
    love to you,Jackie

  12. Liebe Susi
    schön die Karten hab viel Freude damit!
    Toll die Hände zu zeichnen in verschiedenen Haltung, ist nicht so einfach aber du hast es prima gemacht und bei jeder Übung wird es besser. Ich habe alle meine Kekse letzte Woche gebacken und erfreu mich jetzt dran. Nah und deine Hunde die schauen aber auch wenn sie so duften in ihre Nase.
    Ich wünsche dir noch schöne Adventtage!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  13. Mmmmmh, lecker Plätzchen nehme ich auch, aber deine beiden "Hübschen" sind auch nicht zu verachten ;:) Können die mit Katzen auskommen, wäre ein Versuch wert ;)

    Toll deine Zeichnung, das stelle ich mir sehr schwierig vor!

    Lieben Gruß von der MooMajo

  14. What a great blog post, Susi. I think I can smell those cookies. Especially love your kitchen helpers!
    Your artwork is just beautiful! I predict you will be doing your own YouTube videos someday soon!
    Kind regards, Chris

  15. I googled kipferl, and now I'm more interested than ever :) Looks tasty! Happy T Tuesday

  16. What wonderful cards and gifts you received. Most impressive and couldn't happen to a nicer person.

    I loved the mosaic you created with the dogs enjoying their time in the kitchen with you. They are so healthy and I can tell they are loved. Those cookies look good, too. Maybe you could fax me a couple (GRIN).

    I adore the combined Art Journal Journey and T hand drawing. It looked like a YouTube video, too. I am finally able to view YouTube, but haven't found anything there I actually haven't already tried. But I don't draw, so I'm sure your great drawing skills will be enhanced by hand videos. Right now, I would say you are doing a super job and have that lesson down pat.

    Thanks for sharing your Christmas cards, your cookies, the dogs, and your art journal with us at both Art Journal Journey and T this Tuesday. It's a fabulous post.

  17. How nice to celebrate Youtube - such a wonderful resource for just about anything. The fingers behind and round the glass - that's very skillful.
    We are having a good time celebrating this month, yes!
    Happy week before Christmas.

  18. Hallo Susi, uih, da hast Du Dich bestimmt gefreut über die wunderschönen Weihnachtskarten. Toll, freu mich für Dich.
    LG Conny

  19. Wow, all those cookies look delicious and I'm not surprised your dogs were looking longingly at them, I am too ...lol 😉...yum! I loved seeing both your dogs again, they look so adorable 😁. Your painting is such a wonderful celebration of your drawing and learning, I think YouTube is such a great way to learn how to do things too! Wishing you a Happy T Day and a very Merry Christmas my friend! J 😊 x

  20. Lots of lovely cards Susi, and your Kipferln look wonderful too! As do your hand drawings, - wow!

  21. Christmas looks like fun at your house between all those beautiful cards and those yummy cookies.
    Lovely journal page celebrating YOUTUBE. It is a whole new world where you can learn about everything. So much to learn and not enough time...I understand.
    Merry Christmas,

  22. Oh yes YouTube is one of my happy places... Anything i want to know about or learn theres usually a video for that... lol Your dogs look like they have sugar plums dancing in their heads..lol What kind of dogs are they Susi?? Merry Christmas and Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  23. What wonderful gifts you have shared Susi and your baking day too. Wishing you a fabulous Christmas, may all your hopes and dreams come true. Warm Wishes Tracey x

  24. Happy mail. Happy pups. Happy hands.
    Merry Christmas!! :)

  25. What a lovely post, Susi - presents and cards from friends, two very ell behaved dogs, scrumptious looking cookies and some fun sketching. You did very well with the hands. Hands are difficult to draw. They're so complex. Boy can I relate to wanting to do/learn so many artsy things!

    Merry Christmas and happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  26. Wow what beautiful cards you’ve received Susi. Ha ha look at the faces on your dogs...they can’t resist the lovely smells obviously!!
    Donna xx

  27. What lovely cards you've received, Susi - and thank you so much for your email card - the painting is absolutely lovely. I hope you received your e-card from me too.

    I haven't baked my Kipferl yet - tree-decorating tomorrow and probably the biscuits on Saturday, I think... just in time!

  28. Oh What helpful dogs! Your journal page is fabulous and I know what you mean about YouTube - so much to learn! Belated Happy T day! Chrisx
