A busy week



It has been a busy week here, with ups and downs. The biggest 'up' was an email from Spoonflower, letting me know that my Dutch Houses fabric was chosen to feature in The Nate Berkus Show! Initially this didn't mean anything to me, but after some googling I discovered that Nate Berkus is a very famous American interior designer who has his own TV show. Okay... The episode was taped last Tuesday and will be aired in May. The Spoonflower people have promised to send me a link to the video online and of course I will share it with you! ;-)

It was my oldest son's 9th birthday on Thursday, so that kept me busy, and I have been writing an article for a magazine (!) which took up a lot of my time. Will tell you more soon!

Today I had to come home from work early to pick up my youngest from school, as he had a headache and was waiting for me on a bed in the school office... That was a 'down' but being home early meant I could add a new line to my Etsy shop, which I had been planning to do for a while: Printable Art.



A few of my calligrams are now available as PDF files that you can download and print at home (or in a print shop), and frame, or use as cards, birthday invitations etc. At this moment the Robot, Dolphin, Elephant and Flamingo are available but I will be adding more in the next few days.



Coming home today I found a parcel waiting for me... and in it was this gorgeous bag, that looks like a cute handbag but is in fact a Ketti Camera Bag! As you know I love to take my beloved DSLR everywhere, but not in the ugly black camera bag that I got for free when I bought it... Now here is a camera bag that you can be seen with!

(talking about cameras, I put a new photo on the photoblog and I would love it if you would go and see it!)

We have a busy weekend coming up, with gymnastics training, friends coming over and two birthday parties... But I hope to have some time to play with fabric, thread and maybe even paint!

Congrats on the Nate Berkus show! Sounds like great exposure and lots of potential sales. I love the camera bag too. Hope your son is feeling better.

Linda, That is such great news! Congratulations. I think your idea to sell prints in really smart. I bet you will sell a bunch.

Dat is pas een goede opsteker.
