Falcon Travelers

Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

Last month I didn’t feel like overly decorating my diary much. Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing a lot of painting, like the below mermaid.

Whatever it is, it left my monthly pages rather bare compared to my usual doodles and stuff.

However I still think it turned out nice. I adore the color of those fall leaves. So I had to glue them in. Not sure though what the best way is to do this. So still looking for tips on that.

At the start of the month we had our 25 year anniversary, so to celebrate that, we had a nice dinner with the kids and they treated us to a movie. We got to pick which one we wanted to see =)

Which obviously had to Blade runner 2049. It was awesome! Beautiful images and magical atmosphere… and of course Harrison Ford…

Painted another mermaid like I painted at the start of the year, but this time I made her in all happy fall colors.

Here they both are. The same but so very different.


I don’t even know which one I like best… too hard to choose.

As you can see the decorating in that week was mostly left out, I think I only added some washi at the last moment.

This week I did start out with some decoration, but kept it really plain. I kinda like the way the text starts to get a life of it’s own this way.

Still doing my Italian lesson via DuoLingo, although they are all done. I just keep repeating them till I feel I’m able to form a coherent sentence all by myself… but I also started Japanese now, so who knows, I may one day be able to speak Japanese. Although I do think I need an insert just for that, because I just can’t remember what sign goes with what.

Recently we got an application by a student for an internship with our company and last week we made it all official and we are now a recognized training company for students learning to be a creative craftsman.

I’m very happy with that. It’s always fun to try and teach other people new things and maybe learn a thing or two along the way as well.

This month is going to be NaNoWriMo month, so I’m going to do a lot of writing, probably mostly for my novel. Although I will try and keep you updated about my progress there. Our first intern will start November 13, so all in all it’s going to be a very full month and I’m really excited about it.

Signing off for now, have a lovely week,

xoxo Monique
