I've tried to capture
the soul of
some of my bigger screen prints
in mini cut outs.
I'm attending a ceramic class
for two weeks now,
much too soon to think
about making my own pottery.
But I could not resist to make some designs
for my own ceramics to come.
They will look good on cards too.
I'll dream on and on.....
The Christmas Trade
I wished I could trade with all of you!
thank you all for joining.
I would be very honored
to make a trade with Mikodesign
Thank you so much all,
hopefully you will join next time too!
Have a great weekend,
The Girlfriends all new!
To celebrate them
the Holiday Season,
(like many others online)
a Christmas Trade.
If you make something
that will make a good trade
for this all New Gilfriends Screen Print
(One week to sign in!)
And that is not all,
Appeltaart has a gift for you too!
FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE till Christmas Eve!
Isn't that fun?
I like rain,
but not if it can't stop.
At those times, I'll have to open my Red Suitcase.
My Red Suitcase is filled with my sunglass collection.
This makes women smile,
no matter how hard it poors.
I can't show them all,
but will show my most treasured ones.
They are spotless,
I keep them in little bags
to keep them save.
Am I pathetic, I wonder?
Like a true collector,
I'll wait for the big sale
It all started with a very small handsome Moschino.
I was still a girl.
Number 2 was a big YSL
(people were staring at me & I felt like the Fly)
My collection had started.
Don't tell the Man in the house,
I will convince myself and him
that I really am in need of a new glasses
Girl in forest
(Personally, I think she had 'a tiny bit' too much champagne)
she is still gorgeous.
And suits our wall just fine!
what do you think of our new ceramic shelve of fame?
isn't it serene?
I collect (don't laugh, i know I collect a lot...)
small white lovely's to put candles in
Imagine the night,
and all those little pots are on fire.
Every single one mean a lot to me.
Unfortunately not for the boys,
that's why we had to tink a shelve high in the sky,
Most of them,
are bought in England.
they take us right back to the Christmas Market
in front of the stunning Winchester Cathedral.
Must be the time of year,
me dwelling over England these weeks!
Back to business, Tinkerbell...
Girl in Forest is also wondering around in my SHOP.
I have to hurry now,
my party with 10 girls starts in 1,5 hour
got to buy us champagne!
EDIT: The first Sweet heart Arrived!!!
Congratulations dear neighbors
We are in the middle of a
I ♥ babies,
I ♥ pregnant bellies &
the excitement around the birth of a baby.
Yesterday the first due date arrived,
no baby yet,
lucky for me,
still time to design my gift.
It took hours to make the cut out,
but I think it is worth the effort.
(btw: boom = tree in Dutch)
Of course the big apple in the centre would be baby
The top two could be the lucky parents
and the baby can be surrounded by brothers and sisters
The big apple is surrounded by
all the people who are gonna love and cherish this baby/toddler
forever and ever.
The design is really abstract because
I really want that every child
feels comfortable to be the centre of this family tree.
This is the original paper cut
I tested one
with name & date
I framed & hanged it.
I now know
which colors I will use
how I will add letters.
For all people who are not in 'my' baby boom circle,
but are part of their own,
this print will soon be in my shop,
of course with your baby's name on it.
I'll keep you posted!
(shall today be the day
I will make the first one for real?
Keep my fingers crossed!)
Guy & I just moved to England.
This was were I was,
what I was doing
who I was with
according my photobook.
the land in front of our house
surrounded by trees
by ancient churches and cathedrals
and this little guy was wondering around the forest
i liked him
i worked my *** off in artcollege
& carried a little secret around in my tummy
to me this girl looks like 15
i was not
here i looked like a movie star
who had time to shop
for a decent winter coat
even i don't know what there on about!
What were you up to 6 years ago?
