spoiled 2

although it isn't sinterklaas or christmas yet, even my birthday is far away, I spoiled myself with another piece of art. I met the artist (Irma Braat) at kunst in duin. I loved this little piece of art right away and considered an unpleasant medical examination good enough reason to spoil myself. I don't know whether I should let it be framed or not...any advice?

jilles is already very excited about his upcoming birthday (which will take a while because it will be in november) and of course after that sinterklaas will arrive in holland. So he started to collect pictures of presents for his wish list (you can never start to early). Stije copied his behavior. so our house is now filled with pictures of playmobile and lego, they are all over the place, everywhere I walk I step on it ;-)).

I've been quit busy lately giving workshops, making presents for new borns, helping at school etc etc.... Today was a lovely day, together with a friend I gave a workshop at the children's farm in my neighbourhood. there was a little festival about farm products. the weather was great, there were a lot of enthusiastic children (so much that in the end we had to disappoint some children because they couldn't take part anymore) and they made lovely felt flowers.

I spoiled myself with a beautiful piece of art from cathy cullis. I love her work and was looking for the perfect piece to spoil myself. I asked her to make something to symbolize the mother-son bond. I had it framed and gave it a special place in our home. Thank you cathy!

in october my sister in law is getting married. yesterday we celebrated her bachelor and I made her a gift for the wedding, a ring pillow. something old (the buttons), something new (the pillow made by me) and something bleu (the bleu button) (unfortunately it's not something borrowed). I also added their initials. hopefully her daughter wants to carry it on the big day.
