Small houses at winter fair

These days I have my own shop at the winterfair in Soest (NL)! A small Anton Pieck house filled with all handmade gifts, cards, accessories and paintings and drawings. I am there until Saturday afternoon, welcome to drop by, especially if you like christmas trees, sledges, a woodfire and shopping! For route, times and information see: www.warmewittewinterweken.nl.

Book Open Studios bij Swedish LottaJansdotter

I am an enthusiastic fan of the Swedish designer Lotta Jansdotter (www.jansdotter.com), I like her designs, the simplicity and pureness of it. I have bought some of her books. The last one is this book Open Studios in which she shows the studios of many designers. It is so nice to see all of them at work in their creative space! I am now selling this book for 19 euros (mailingcosts are 2.76 euros if you are in the Netherlands). I am hoping to make some room for other books on my wishlist... please contact me if you are interested.

The paper workshop was really nice, about 20 ladies took the plunge to make torn up pieces of paper into a picture. I always like the diversity of the results, strong colours, soft colours, abstract, flowers or a landscape:
Another workshop challenged the participants to make a woollen hat out of old jerseys and shirts. Nice for the winter which has been predicted to be one of the coldest ones! brrr!

this week: workshop paper-collage

This week is paper-week: with a group of women I'll be tearing paper apart to make it into a new nice piece of art. I made two examples: a landscape and an arrangement of tulips. I hope to inspire them to make something beautiful!
