Work In Progress

Been hard at work for a while!
After 24 hours of drying, all these gems are being turned into 
magnets, pendant, pinbacks or bobby pins. 

Been working hard to have some new stuff for the AMS*DIY - the 2011 Urban Art & Craft Festival at the ABC Treehouse  Which is this weekend, July 2nd and 3rd in Amsterdam. 
 And because of this event, the window display at the American Book Center at the Spui  in Amsterdam had a little facelift for this weekend. Fun is that some of our stuff is being displayed at the center left window. 

Was really fun to set up and such a great opportunity for my stuff to be seen by a wider audience :)

By the way, there are still some seats left for my stamp carving workshop on July 3rd (from 3-4:30 pm) So if you want to learn how to carve  your own stamps, do make a reservation :) With this workshop you will receive a starter's kit so that after the workshop you can continue to work at home :) 

For more info on the event, see the flyer

So I hope that, if you're in the aria, you'll 
stop by and get your DIY on :) 



HELLO recycled wooden sign by WilliamDohman

Sorry I have been MIA a bit! Been on a little break to a lovely city called Prague for a week after Pentecost holidays (in which I participated  the Utrechtse Fabriek Market on both June 12th and 13th with lovely Sweedebie) and just got back. The weather was lovely, and we did the whole sight seeing and walked all over the city. We found some really cool stores in Prague with wonderful handmade stuff. Pictures and a full report on the trip will come hopefully soon ;) But here's a little Impression;

Really busy weeks have passed with all the markets in we have participated and a few more will come! With the AMSTERDAM ARTS and Crafts DIY event at the ABC Treehouse just one week and a half away, I still have a lot to prepare! We'll be there on both days of July 2nd and 3rd, creating stamps on the spot and there's also a workshop which you can attend on July 3rd. More on this event, see the links nd since I don't have time to blog much in these coming weeks, check out my facebook page to keep up to date :)
 I'll also have some DIY stamp carving kits with me that weekend with a lot of other goodies, some plush and of course hand carved stamps so if you're there, would love it if you'd drop by and say hello back :)
