Action Review: Watercolor Canvas

Action review: Watercolor canvas

Ja, je ziet het goed! Deze week twee blog posts! Naast het toffe Me & My Bullet Journal interview met Laura, wilde ik jullie graag deze review van de Watercolor Canvas van de Action laten zien. Ik kon niet meer wachten…

Ik kocht dus een canvasje bij de Action waarop de tekst ‘Throw kindness around like confetti’ staat. Confetti is met goudfolie gemaakt en de rest van de tekst en een aantal rondjes op het canvas, is van een soort waterafstotende lijm waardoor daar geen aquarel blijft zitten. Er zijn nog andere varianten met bijvoorbeeld bloemetjes en vlinders erop.

Het canvasje kostte slechts €0,99, dus ik was erg benieuwd of dit een beetje leuk zou worden. En om jullie lekker mee te laten genieten heb ik er een filmpje van gemaakt.

Aquarel, water, kwasten, Action!

Souvenirs from Stockholm



I’m back in The Netherlands!

It was sad to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for 5 months, but it was good. The last week I visited several museums, enjoyed the city from a viewpoint and walked it’s streets to say goodbye.

Coming home was something I really looked forward to: hugging my family again, seeing my grandparents and of course hugging, kissing and playing with my ferret Mexy after missing her for 5 months.

Pretty much as soon as I touched ground in The Netherlands, my whole study abroad period seemed like a big nice dream. Everything around me is familiar and I’m used to it, it’s as if I woke up from a 5 month sleep and hit the play button again.

Luckily I have my family who visited Stockholm, so they can pinch me: It wasn’t just a dream, I really lived in Stockholm.

And I have brought some souvenirs back home to remember my time there. Let me show you what I bought to keep the memory alive.


How about something custom made for you?

You know how it always goes.
You’re looking for something specific to decorate your home.
You search for it in stores and online, but you can’t find it.
Well, you did find something like it, but it wasn’t exactly what you were looking for.

That’s what a few of my customers thought when they came to the Handmade to Celebrate Etsy shop.
‘Hey, I like those knitted flag, but they’re not the right color/size/shape’.
So they stepped out and sent me a request for a custom order.

For examples, someone mailed me this and asked if I could make it like that for the nursery of her first child. (more…)
