Nice to be back! I was on a trip to Holland to participate in a conference with DH for the Church.
There was one lady I wanted to visit. Because she had sent me a card I knew her address and it so happened that I was staying in a place just round the corner from her! I wanted to surprise her, so Monday afternoon I visited Wilmi from 'Bezig en Blij'.
She has the most amazing craft room and we had a lovely time chatting and drinking tea and lovely cake, until it was time to fetch her son from school. Wilmi is one of the most creative women I have ever met and she is just a lovely person. Here is her craft space:
There is one word to describe everything I saw as she showed me around her house and her garden: gezellig! Which means cozy in English. I just love her style!
I also picked up some inspiration from her, which is the following. I only had two screw tops from bottles of vegetables available so I used them to make these. Wilmi had several, all different sizes on her wall and they looked gorgeous.
I cut out the round shape with a template, glued it into the lid and just added a digital butterfly from Hero Arts and it was ready. I was thinking of adding dimensional tape to the back to fix it to a wall, when I have got several done.
This is my second one, very easy to make and very decorative on the walls! Thanks Wilmi for your inspiration!
Another thing I love doing is cutting out butterflies when I am away because a lot of the time we are sitting down or waiting for something, so I like to be busy! I stamp the butterflies on lots of scraps before I leave. I was just getting started on this photograph.
When I got home there was a lovely package from Sue waiting for me with loads of scraps - but they are not just any kind of scraps, the most beautiful papers were in the envelope and some stamps - so thankful to you Sue! The card above is an indication of what she sent me and I used my freshly cut butterflies on it.
Then I got a little package from Dee - Dee is a lady who I met via Internet and we exchange e-mails quite a lot as she has the same sort of style as I have.
So that was it for today. You will probably remember that I shared about the first 'A' of Marriage - ACCEPTANCE in my last blog post. Within the next couple of days I will be sharing the second one, which is ADMIRE. So please be back to join me on that one!
Have a lovely day. We are free today, a National Holiday.
