Ending 2012 with a Book



2012

for creJJtion 2012 was a very exciting year, to say the least. an Instagram account, Facebook page, Etsy shop and twitter account were added to the social media family. Lieke, Miami Beach and Beach Girl, Miami City, Cato, Olympics, Juliet and Delft Blue all came to live as a baby blanket. 4 pillows, 18 Santa dolls, 3 scarfs, 3 sets of coasters, 5 baskets, numerous sets of wrist cozy's and cowls, moodboards, collages, contribution to Gatherings magazine, thousands of pictures and 3 baby rattles were made.
with the cooperation with the production facility in Bolivia and a partnership with Baby Watoto in Africa, two of my dreams were fulfilled. the support I got from you in real life, through e-mail, through this blog, on Facebook and Instagram was never ending, and there are no words to express how much I appreciate them and feel the love. it was a good year for creJJtion.

to answer my urge to document and organize and to tell you the story of creJJtion in 2012 in pictures, I am proud to present you my portfolio book. I am very happy and lucky to be given the chance to be intensely inspired and creative this past year.


THANK YOU

on a personal level 2012 was a good year as well. we got to travel in Canada, the USA and Europe, spent lovely time with friends and family both here and there. the husband and I were able to inspire, challenge and encourage each other, sharing both laughter and tears. it was our first full year in Canada and we enjoyed it so much we like to stay a little longer. in our family healthy babies were born and we can't wait to meet them in 2013. health and luck wise some of our family members were much less fortunate and without going into details, I wish I could hug them more often and wish for them nothing but a healthy and quiet, peaceful 2013.


for now, I am wishing you all a perfect new years eve!

let's talk 2013, intentions and resolutions tomorrow
