Not quite ready yet, but you can take a look at my own site. Funny, saw that this is blogpost number 100. Very slowly, there was already a little start to a different interpretation of my blog. Started it to collect inspirations anywhere, I now want to stimulate my creativity more by 'oblige' post frequently. A bit of Julia Cameron, a little of myself? Inspired by other bloggers, yeah that too. Nog niet helemaal af, maar als je wilt, kun je alvast een kijkje nemen op mijn eigen site. En wat grappig: zie dat dit mijn honderste blogpost is. Heel...

This time a favorite top 5 of things that give me a little laugh tickling, every time I see them. Deze keer een favoriete 5 met lieve dingen die me iedere keer, als ik ze zie, een lachkriebel bezorgen. Had to serve a lot of people coffee. Don't like plastic cups. I went thrifting and bought a lot of granny cups. There about fifty now, couldn't decide which one not to put in my cupboard. Every time I open the door, I just have to smile a little. Kreeg nogal wat mensen op de koffie. Hou niet zo van plastic... Continue reading

The one who gave me live, was looking for me yesterday and felt really bad when she couldn't find me. After a sleepless night she went to the woods where she found out thad I didn't come home after a photoshoot of us in September!!! Toen degene die mij het leven gaf, mij gisteren vast wilde leggen voor haar favoriete top vijf, ontdekte ze tot haar grote schrik dat ik niet op mijn gebruikelijke plek stond. Zelfs in het hele huis niet te vinden was. Inmiddels was het donker en na een slapeloze nacht is ze meteen naar het bos... Continue reading

Today I was invited to an opening of an exhibition of Ger Heesen. See that I only show his older work. He also has great abstracts. Articles down in Dutch. Maybe Google translater can mean something to you. Not much crafting done, maybe tonight ;). Vandaag was ik op een hommage/expositie van Ger Heesen. Zie nu dat ik alleen foto's heb van zijn oudere werk, hij heeft ook prachtige abstracten gemaakt. Inspirerend. Nog niet veel kunnen haken van het weekend, misschien vanavond nog ;). Continue reading

Went for suitcases, found them, a lot. Will use them to storage stuff, that's in the rooms, which I'm going to paint. Op kofferjacht geweest, en heb ze gevonden, volop. Ga ze gebruiken om spullen in op te bergen, die in de ruimtes staan, die ik binnenkort ga verven. Continue reading

To the idea of Ingrid I also start posting my favorite five. Every Wednesday I hope. To pay attention and catalog ;) the good things of my life. Met Ingrid en Martine als goed voorbeeld, start ik ook met mijn favoriete 5. Om even stil te staan bij de goede dingen van het leven, mijn leven. En dat eens op een rijtje te zetten. Iedere week nog wel. One of my lovely handmade bears. Mingo, after a pattern of Tierlantijntje. This picture stands for me creating things. Crocheting, sewing, knitting, photographing, I simply have to create. Een van mijn lieve... Continue reading

Seeing these guys on the web for a while, great. Love them. Last week I found the book in the library. I think it's humor to knit Christmas Balls, and that by two men with that Norwegian pattern. It makes me laugh every time. Book Zie deze twee mannen al een tijdje voorbij komen op het wereldwijde web. Ik vind ze geweldig. Vond hun boek vorige week in de bieb. Ik vind het humor om kerstballen te breien, en dan ook nog door twee mannen in een Noors patroon. Het maakt me iedere keer weer aan het lachen, heerlijk melig. Continue reading

The kids had holiday from school. My little(7) one's first blanket, sewn by her own. She did the parts, I the rows and redwhitedots. I'm proud. She also crocheted the line and made de pompon. Great for reading on the couch this winter. Herfstvakantieklusje vorige week. Mijn jongste(7) haar eerste naaiwerkje. Zij maakte de blokken aan elkaar, ik deed de rijen en de afwerking. Ik ben trots. Zij haakte ook het lijntje en maakte de pompon. Heerlijk om lekker warm onder te lezen op de bank van de winter. Continue reading

For years looking on the site of Drops. Never took the time to make something. Also because I didn't have Drops yarn. Could order it online, but sometimes you want to feel the yarn before buying. Was enjoying the Dropssite again, thought about ordering, when I saw a new shop in the list, about 15 minutes driving from my house!!!! That was May, and lucky me: 30% of the winteryarn. I saw this fantastic bag in blue hanging there. And of course I had to make one myself. Not all the yarn was available, but about two weeks ago I... Continue reading

“It’s the most fun I’ve had with any textile,” said Ms. Barnes. Megan Novak, an artist, crocheting a giant square on Ms. Barnes’s roof. She’s using a fat dowel stick and her hands as a crochet hook. Her yarn is lengths of unspun, fluffy merino wool. Ms. Novak wears a white cotton organdy apron to keep the fibers from sticking to her. Without it, she said, “it’s a lint fest.” Via Continue reading
