DD 25: endings and new beginnings...

Hi bloggers!
So, here it is, my final post of the year and my final DD series post... Yes, I didn't make my promise of daily posts, but I did manage to share with you all my "creative road trip stories" from the last couple of years. I can't believe how lucky I am to be able to live my creative life the way I do, now I see all those stories together... I want to thank all my creative partners in crime to share this journey with me and to make it even more special and unforgettable! This year, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of my “creative heroes”, I still can’t believe that all of it was real and it will be hard to equal this next year! I think the challenge is to believe in yourself and to try out new things. That’s something I’ll be doing in 2018, a new adventure awaits… drumrolls please… I’m part of the Design Team for Gummiapan!! I can’t wait to start creating examples for you guys with these lovely and cute stamps! I hope you’ll join me in this new adventure but first… let’s celebrate the amazing year we had and let’s toast on the new one! I wish you all a happy new year and I’ll see you soon!
Lots of Love,

DD 24: last workshop of the year...with Kate Crane!

Hi bloggers

My last creative treat of the year… A workshop with the sweetest and most modest person I have ever met, miss Kate Crane! I really cursed when I discovered that her workshops were at the same time than the weekend which I already had been registered for. So I did a very silly happy dance when there was an extra workshop on Monday! Since I already was in Holland, I drove a little farther, stayed in a lovely b&b and treated myself with one more workshop this year! It was the perfect ending to an even more perfect weekend. I visited the art chicks studio for the first time, I met some 'old' creative friends, I met Marieke Blockland for the first time AND I learned some new techniques from Kate Crane. What more can you wish for? Let’s hope 2018 can match the amazing creative journey I had this year!


DD 23: my very first scrapweekend

So, November already, time flies when you’re having fun! And oh what fun it was at the scrapheapweekend!! For the first time I attended this weekend, organized by The Scrapheap and together with my creative partner in crime, Marit. Boy, did I laugh those 3 days! Really, thank you girls for such an amazing time! I didn’t create a lot (I also got sick on Saturday evening, talking about some bad timing he!) but I enjoyed every second of being surrounded with all those lovely ladies! Until next time… 


DD 22: workshop with Iggydodie

Hi there creative souls! Blogpost nr 22, almost there! 
At the end of October I treated myself again with a creative weekend and this time in my own country! Although in another language… Jep, I went to Wallonia to participate 2 workshops with the lovely iggydodie at the Expression Hobby store. She makes amazing albums and she combines mixed media with scrapbooking. I really wanted to meet her in person and learn her tips and tricks because I want to do more with all the pictures I take. Making my albums myself and alter them with some mixed media techniques is really right up my alley so yeah, I had a blast! Thank you ladies for being patient with me, I really have to practice my French!! 


DD 21: Kreadoe

The first of November I took an unexpected trip to the Kreadoe craftsfair in Utrecht, together with Nancy & Vince. Oh my, these 2 are such goofballs! I really had a blast! And It also was a nice and inspiring fair, not only scrapbook and mixed media related but really for all kinds of creative people. It was nice to get inspired by al the patterns, colors and materials around me. Here’s a fun impression of the day, looking at it still makes me smile 😁
