I was instantly enthusiastic and last February (2016) I colored my first design by Sandy Wijsbeek. ...

This of course is a coloring agenda in the Dutch language, but if the language does not bother you, it’s actually a nice one for everybody, whatever language you speak. The coloring agenda feels firm (is that a way to describe ...

Afke’s Tiental Stripkleurboek (Personalia)

Added on Feb. 16th 2019: This coloring book review was previously only published on my Dutch website. Since my Dutch website has stopped, I don’t want to lose the reviews that weren’t published on my English website. So here it is, in Dutch.

You can read the review of this book here and I’ve chosen to work with the Faber-Castell Albrecht ...

Brushmarker Test sheet

Straight to the Brushmarkers Yesterday we went into town. Just very short, only to go to the post office and the stationers. Though my favorite stationer… which is always a ‘dangerous’ thing hahaha.
