The picture above shows my first project. I was really excited when I actually felt the wool, soap and water doing their job. I still think […]

The grape hyacinths (blauwe druifjes) have finished blooming. I replaced the little blue flowers with this assortment of buttercups (ranonkels) I placed them beside my bed, and every time I open the bedroom door, a smile apears on my face.

Today I felt the energy to create again, jippee. I picked up an old WIP project, and it’s almost finished now. Two more bushes with flowers have to be attached, and then I will have my own piece of ‘art’ to brighten up my studio. I also started a new project, again inspired by Lucy […]

• iPod covers

A colleague asked me if I could make her a cover for her new iPod. When I started designing one for her, the ideas for other versions just popped up like mushrooms. I worked out four of those ideas so she could choose, and if it was meant to be, she chose the one I initially designed for her. […]
