Me dear design friend Sue has asked me to be part of a different kind of bloghop.
Please take a look at her blog, she has a amazing blog with gorgeous creations.
And there you will find the answers from her on the on the set of questions we all have.
It is always a feast to read her posts!
I never have done this before, but I thought it would be fun to be part of this.
So here I go!
For the abroad crafters friends, I decided to do this post in English, so everyone should be able to read this post.
Made notice that there are a lot of links to webshops, challenges and other craftersfriends.
Do link them, and check them out, it is so much fun to get noticed to others who shares the love of crafting!
Okay, let’s start!
What am I working on?
Well, I am a member of 2 challenge blogs.
One is for the Sweet Pea Stampers, that I love so much.
This will be my second year I am a DT-member on this lovely crew of friendly and easy going team.
I am still loving it, and I hope to stay a DT-member for a long time.
I try to make a card or project for every challenge, so every week.
But lately I make my tasks for every two weeks.
( because of some health/family states)
The stamps and digi’s are availble at the Sweet Pea Stamps.
Right now I am making something… but it has to be a surprise.. so be patience… LOL
Also for the Dutch company CreaMiep I design several cards an projects.
I applied myself ( yeah, really!) on this DT-group of lovely ladies.
I made a card, and added it on the FB group from CreaMiep Design FB.
And the owner loved my work.. and I asked… well.. I could be a part of your DT-group… and she said.. YES!
The owner of this webshop, Sonja, keeps her own blog as well.
She is a lovely lady and very generous and so kind to all of us.
So it keeps me busy and crafty!
Well, I am a mom too… so with my crafty hands, I try to encourage my kids to craft as well.
Every friday evening I have two girls from the neighborhood sitting on my craftingtable.
I love to share my view on crafting to the girls, other people and ofcourse my own two girls Jelleke ( 12 years ) and Mayke ( 4 years ).
These girls are my neighborgirls… they make a lovely hang tag…
I am learning them to color with distress pads and markers.
Oh.. and the redhead.. is me… Yaiks!
And those two are my beautiful daughters Jelleke and Mayke.
When I am coloring, they always sit with me.. coloring, talking and doing the fun stuff!
How does my work differ from others of it’s genre?
I like to learn different kind of techniques and skills.
I think I also differ from others because I like to make my own backgroundpapers.
Like on these cards.
Also I love to make projects that is not a card.
Every day I learn something new and exciting.
I like to look at Pinterest for new ideas to inspire myself.
Ofcourse I keep track to all my lovely craftersfriends to visit their blogs.
Why do I write/create what I do?
It all started when I was looking for something to have for myself.
My husband is a real computernerd, so he created this beautiful website for me.
He is also a very creative person, because he is a photographer and keeps his own blog Gertjan’s Foto’s.
He has traveled a lot, and maked a lot of pictures.. check it out.. I am so proud of him!
Why do I write/create what I do… well.. it is a reflection of me.
When I was a kid, I always was very creative.
It never stopped… I did.. .drawnings, sewing, baking, scrapbooking..whatever to keep my hands busy!
To write this down, it gives me some peace in my mind.
I just love to share this with other friends and crafters.
How does your writing/creating process work?
Well…. do you really want to know… hahaha!
Actually, I am a very structured person, also in crafting.
It sounds like a joke, does it?
This is my crafterscabinet… all neat and tidy…
You can see all the things inside that I use everytime when I craft.
But… our diningtable.. is my craft area… So I have to keep it clean, because when it’s time to eat… there will be no craftingstuff on the table!
This is how I work… everything around me….
I would love to have my own craft space… but since I can’t walk properly… I’ll have to do it downstairs…
But I am happy with my space, and that my kids and hubby don’t mind my crafty mess when I am busy.
( As long as I tidy up when dinner is served…lol ).
Now for the exciting bit… I am tagging the following:
This very talented lady makes the most gorgeous creations.
She is very kind and generous too.
We became friends thanks to FB.
She has a very beautiful blog too… so follow her…
Check out her blog… and see what she has to say about the different kind of bloghop!
