2278 No winter lasts forever....

I really hope that finally spring arrives and brings warmer days.
I found a lovely quote of comfort last week and I found some hibernated leaves at one of my dog walks and so this spread came into being.

“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”

I’m pleased to be able to join the following challenges today:

Elizabeth's TSFT ...with my required decaf.
Happy T-Day to the lovely Gals!

and Rosie's  current Spring theme.
 And for my  TMTA - ATC 
I went digital this time . 
VERTRÄUMT /DREAMY is Dani's theme of the week.

Thank you  for joining me today! If you have any questions  I would love to answer them, so don't hesitate to ask.




  1. Liebe Susi,
    wunderschöne Seiten, die du hier zeigst vor allem
    die Farben gefallen mir und
    dein Wort in Gottes Ohr, dass kein Winter ewig hält ;-)
    Ich wünsche dir einen gemütichen Tag, lass dir den Kaffee schmecken ;-)
    Viele Grüße

  2. Das sieht super aus, liebe Susi! Die Fäden geben einen tollen Effekt. Hoffentlich wird es bei Euch bald was mit dem Frühling, damit die Osterhasen nicht schlottern müssen.
    Viele liebe Grüße

  3. what a glorious journal page! it is so like the field biologists's notebook! and a perfect sentiment. we are all so ready for spring to come for real! xo

  4. Hi Susi love your leaves ,they look great on the page,i also love the words,well done my friend xx

  5. A super study page Susi holding those dear leaves with so much detail within. I believe we are all feeling much the same at the moment, we were teased with two days of sunshine, now the dark grey skies and rain start the day. Think I too need a coffee before my day begins.
    Happy T Day..
    Creative wishes Tracey xx

  6. Love both pieces Susi and the quote is so uplifting!
    Lots of hugs

  7. Deine Collage ist super geworden, die goldenen Akzente gefallen mir sehr gut und der Spruch auch. Mir wäre aber lieber der Winter wäre kürzer, etwa die Länge der Weihnachtsferien ;)
    LG Petra

  8. what a fabulous page I think spring is trying to make an appearance too as it was lovely yesterday but again we have rain..but its good for the plants!

  9. The leaves you found on your walk look lovely, you have created a fantastic journal spread with them and you did find a great quote to use. I hope you don't mind me making a note of it, I hope to get together a quotes book for my personal use, its still in the think about it stage at the moment.
    Happy T day wishes Susi,
    Yvonne xx

  10. Nice journal spread Susi. I love the fiber and th rinklely background. It really gives the page some depth. I like ow you found those leaves and used them. There is hope, isn't there? We are having a bit warmer week so I am hopeful the really winter weather is over. :) Happy T day to you Susi and I hope it's a beautiful day in your world. Hugs-Erika

  11. Such a beautiful journal page and quote! The texture you created with the leaves, thread and papers is amazing and I love the touches of blossoms too 😁. Even the colour of your mug matches the look and feel of the page beautifully 😉. I'm loving your digital ATC too, so dreamy with those lovely speckled eggs and layers of images! Wishing you a very Happy T Day dear Susi! J 😊 x

  12. These pages are so inspiring, Susi. the real leaves are gorgeous !

  13. OMG!!! This is gorgeous!!! I absolutely love it Susi!!!


  14. your art work is always so beautiful and I really love the quote allot
    Happy T Day Susi

  15. what a beautiful, organic journal spread Susi! The threads just loosely lying over the leaves is a wonderful, creative touch. Let's hope spring is just around the corner. Happy T day!

  16. I love your seasonal reminder :) and that pink cup looks like a sign of spring to me. Happy T Tuesday

  17. What a lovely quote Susi! Who said that? And its a sentiment that many of us needs to hear lately... No snow here but lots and lots of much needed rain.. What a great idea to use those leaves in your artjournal... I hope you are having a happy T day! Hugs! deb

  18. Susi, you are a master , this is fabulous, love the golden glow and dried leaves , and the quote is so beautiful, too !! a stunning nature spread---
    Can you believe it, we had lots of snow here today :-(
    Hugs from Dorthe xo

  19. As always, I am impressed with your Art Journal Journey entry. I am so sorry I am late visiting. I fell asleep and when I woke, I realized I still had things to do before my friend arrives this morning from TN to spend time with me. I loved how you added a bit of sewing. I haven't had time to do much sewing and I miss it a LOT. It adds such a great dimension to the page, and yours is fabulous. Let's hope that saying is true and we don't go directly from winter to summer in one quick move. I would take spring and autumn forever, if I could and skip winter and summer.

    I am so glad you chose to share your decaf along with your Art Journal Journey entry with us for T this Tuesday.

  20. Lovely pieces today Susi, inspiring quote at this time, we need that.

  21. Oh wow, wie toll das wieder ist... einfach fantastisch. Gefällt mir sehr.
    LG Carola

  22. Hi Susi, I found out about this method from our Carol Samsel it is really amazing how well it works-and they are already harden off ready to plant-best method I have found yet here is one http://www.agardenforthehouse.com/2010/12/winter-sowing-101/ this is winter gardening you just need to know your seeds on when to plant-after no longer freezing at night can plant the more tender seeds-tomatoes etc

  23. This is a lovely natural piece, Susi, reflecting both Winter and the hope of Spring. As I love all seasons your quote is very reassuring. I liked seeing it next to your teacup on your desk as it made it more "real" somehow.
    Happy April when it comes (soon).

  24. Thank your for your visit in my blog and a message your left for me. YOur work is also so corgeous. Have a lovely time of spring.

  25. This is so lovely, Susi! I love how the leaves look embedded into your page and then all those fibers woven over and around them. You make the most visually pleasing pieces. I love this quote and its reminder to be patient for Spring.
    Happy Tea Day,

  26. Wunderschön diese Blätter mit dem Fadengewusel darüber, gefällt mir sehr. Die Blütenzweige dazu sind eine Ankündigung des Frühlings.
    Klasse gemachte Seiten.
    Liebe Grüße

  27. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I just shake my head and marvel at your creativity, Susi! There is hope for a lovely spring.

  28. I always look forward to seeing your journal pages! Love your use if the leaves and neutral colors. Beautiful!happy To day💗

  29. What another wonderful page Susi - love how you have used the leaves, and that quote is so true!

  30. Das sieht toll aus mit den Fäden über den braunen Blättern! Die Ton-in-Ton-Farbharmonie gefällt mir auch sehr gut! Die Blüten signalisieren die Hoffnung auf den Frühling - wenn er doch endlich kommt! Aber das Zitat sagt es uns :)
    Die kleinen gefleckten Eier auf deiner digitalen ATC sind richtige Hingucker!
    Knuddel, Rike

  31. A stunning spread, I love everything about it. Have a lovely day.
    xxx Hazel.

  32. Super Susi, ich bin immer wieder von der Leichtigkeit in Deinen Seiten begeistert. Als ich Dein ATC gesehen habe, musste ich schmunzeln, hätte auch zu dem Thema gepasst, das ich eigentlich im Sinn hatte und auf nächsten Montag verschoben habe.
    Ich danke Dir, dass Du regelmäßig bei mir vorbeischaust und bei Think Monday, Think ATC mitmachst.
    Herzliche Grüße und schöne Ostern

  33. tolle Seiten! Ich wünsche dir ein tolles Osterfest.

  34. Beautiful spread Susi! those leaves are a lucky find still in tact! Oh I sure do hope your quote is correct- it has turned gloomy and miserable here again! We get teased by two or three days of sun then rain and now it is to turn back to snow by this Easter!
    Wishing you and your dear family Easter blessings !

    And I do love your digi for Wen- perfect neutrals!
    hugs & love,Jackie xo

  35. Hi Susi your page is very beautiful, love the leaves. We are also waiting for Spring to arrive, it's taking a long time this year. Take good care, Shirleyxx

  36. Tolle Seiten, liebe Susi.

    Ich möchte auch sooo gerne Frühling haben.

  37. I love the spread with the leaves, Susi. It looks like you arranged string over the p age and them spread gel medium or something to glue it down. Very nice effect. It makes me think of the veins in the leaves. Lovely quote too.

    I was VERY late to T this week and am glad to see you're still at the party - lol.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  38. Oh wow this is beautiful, you got such great inspiration on your dog walk, love the texture you brought to this and that is a great quote to go with it, I love the touch of spring with the branches with blossoms!

  39. I love those leaves and the words on your beautiful spread Susi!
    A wonderful ATC too!
    It definitely feels like Spring is on its way.
    Alison xx

  40. Wow, Susi, I love your textured leaves with their stitching. Amazing that you seem to have stitched it while it was attached to the book! Tricky! And how clever of you to continue your theme quote in the digital ATC.
    Much Spring love,
    Jesse in Autumn, Down Under

  41. What a fabulous art journal page spread, dear Susi! Funny, I was busy creating a similar collage with fallen leaves a little while ago. Can't find it anymore! So I'm very happy to see yours :) Such beautiful textures, and the quote is wonderful! Big hugs and sunny smiles, xx

  42. I love your journal page Susi! And I have to say that I found the same comforting quote a while ago and put it on my blog's side bar. This year it takes sooooo long that it almost feels like the spring has skipped its return :) Bad joke, I take my words back!

    Have a Happy & Sunny Easter!

  43. What a wonderful quote - I had to look it up (Hal Borland), and you've depicted it marvellously. We are just starting to feel like spring here, too...life is gloriously good in the sunshine!

  44. Oh, your art work is so beautiful!!!

  45. This is absolutely fabulous! How very inspirational and the quote so encouraging. I love your work, with so much texture and natural elements. : ) and so glad to see you on Simply Neutral Tuesday!
    PS: I wondered if the dogs pictured in you profile photo are Vizsla's?
    Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend~ karen o

  46. What a fabulous spread Susi!I love your digital ATC too! Coffee is always a good idea! Belated Happy T Day!Chrisx

  47. Im back to catch up on your beautiful blog! Just when I thought we had some spring happening....its cold and rainy again! I remember tanning during this time of year when I was young...Funny how it's different each year! Spring always comes though...eventuality! Happy Easter to you and yours!

    Peace Giggles

  48. Was für ein fabelhaftes Werk, liebe Susi! Toller Materialmix und klasse Texturen ergeben ein wunderbar harmonisches Gesamtwerk!
    Deine ATC ist auch sehr schön!
    Frohe Ostertage mit hoffentlich viel Sonnenschein wünscht dir Annette!

  49. Die Vogeleier in deinem Werk deuten den Frühling deutlich an...ja, wir warten alle drauf!
    So ein blöder Rückfall zwingt mich schon wieder auf's Sofa, ein bisschen mehr Frühling würde helfen, denke ich.
    Schöne Ostertage wünsch ich dir und natürlich Sonne!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  50. What a glorious page - superb colours and textures incorporating the real leaves. I just love it. I hope spring is around the corner, but I'm always happy to see autumn leaves too! Looking forward to more catching up soon.

  51. I love how the thread looks on top of those leaves. Beautiful page, and indeed a quote of comfort. I have the feeling the whole world is waiting eagerly for spring to come. Wishing you a happy Easter!

  52. ich wünsch dir superschöne ostertage, liebe susi.
    ich hoffe, bis nächste woche laufe ich wieder rund und bin zurück in meinem alltag. ich brauch immer ein bisschen, wenn ich weg war;)
    alles liebe, johanna ♥♥♥
