Challenge from ‘De Duif’ this summer: the sequel

challenge

Filled with enthusiasm I started the challenge that Dutch art supplies store Hobbycompleet De Duif announced for this summer. However, what I could have known, but hadn’t really given enought thought, was that during the summertime the temperature in our house rises to extremes. We’ve got a couple mobile air conditioners  to keep temperatures in the living room and our ...

Adventure… come along on a mixed media trip!

adventure

Fall is here, summer’s over. Thankfully the weather is still nice where we live in Southern Spain. Like today, with a blue sky and 26 degrees Celcius on the thermometer. Just like the previous summers here, it was nearly unbearable to do something creative in my studio. On the real warm summerdays temperatures rise easily to 35 °C and I ...

Unboxing of… GoPress & Foil (with video!)

GoPress

Yesterday it finally happened. My parcel from Paperpads.nl was delivered, containing my newest ‘toy’: the GoPress & Foil machine! It wasn’t quite easy to actually get the parcel.

Bingo for creative people… resulted in loads of pink

bingo

BINGO! One of my favorite hobbyshops in the Netherlands has a monthly bingo on Facebook. And I liked the idea so much that I decided to participate. It’s actually pretty simple: at the start of the month they post a ‘bingo card’ with nine different subjects. It looks like the picture on the right, but then with text in it. ...

Small update: what am I doing nowadays?

update

Before I start to post new blogs more often, here’s a little update. I can hear you thinking “well that took a long time!” Well yes… ehm… sorry, I actually seldom blog anymore, just didn’t happen and the threshold to do so got higher and higher. But when I had typed a complete post for my Facebook page last week ...
