Long time.....

Yep, still scrappin'!

The kids had a little break from school and we from work :). During this little holiday we visited Borger (Drenthe). Twan had fun while his cousins visited us for a sleap over. The boys made a nice tipi and after hard work you need a break.....they enjoyed the picknick in it :).

Have a nice new week!

Amy Butler Workshop

Yesterday I did the Amy Butler workshop from The Creative Buzz. Both of the girls (Anita and Birgit) worked on two nice minibooks. The first workshop by Anita was about a minibook which is sollid enough to travel along with you. My book isn't finished yet but with all the yummie goodies and papers I'm able to complete it at home.

The second workshop by Birgit was about transparant sheets in a sort of "envelop bag". I filled it with pictures from our latest holiday in the snow.

Ofcourse we talked and laughed a lot during the workshops. We had a wonderful lunch and a sweet treat in the afternoon; high tea with scones :). Thank you to Anita and Birgit who arranged all this. And thank you for your wonderful ideas and sharing them with us.

Have a nice week.

Workshop Warm and Snuggly

Last Saturday I had a wonderful time at Birgit's house. The Creative Buzz hosted a workshop. We were surprised with a really nice kit with goodies to make a minibook. The gorgeous minibook was designed by Anita.

We had a wonderful lunch with soup and bread. And in the afternoon we were surprised with a real warm, sweet and snuggly hot chocolat with marshmallows!!!!

The paper we used in the minibook is Twan's favorite paper (these are his own words). He really is in with pink, K3 and glitter.......and turning 6 next week :). Fleur decided that she wanted this book to use for herself. But I thought it would be nice to make it a birthday book for all our bday's in 2009.

When you check out the buzz blog you will find out that Birgit and Anita have a new workshop in mind. Only three places are available so be sure and email them in time to be on one of these spots.

Have a nice weekend.

When I opened my mailbox this evening I found out that Birgit tagged me. Thanx :).

This is what I need to do:

Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and link their blogs. Let them know they're tagged by leaving a message on their blogs.

So here we go with my random or weird things:

1. When I hang my wash I like to use only the same coloured clothes pegs.

2. I like my work at the audit firm. And I like to make office jokes with my colleagues.

3. When I go out eating with a friend (once a year) we don't need the menu. We always choose the same meal and the same dessert every year.

4. I never left my birthplace, I like the village and the people who live here.

5. I like to watch House and Gooise Vrouwen.

6. I am a daughter of a farmer but I never lived on a farm.

7. According to my husband I have a cleaning obsession. I don't like to leave my house in a mess.

I tag these talented girls: Haggith, Marianne, Margriet, Moon, Anniek, Jeanet and Marga.

Have fun.

Another minibook

I started working on another minibook. The book isn't filled with pictures yet, but will be soon :). The inspiration for this book have I found here and here.
When I visited Marja's shop I bought some Prima products. The clear books and the clear tape are nice to work with.
Hope to show this minibook with pictures soon.

Have a nice week.
