Big and Exciting News!

this post is all about what has kept me busy the past few weeks and what will keep me busy for another three weeks. on June 2nd a big dream is coming true for me. I am organizing a blogging/ instagram event for crafty people. create 'n date is all about meeting the wonderful people behind your favorite craft and crochet blogs, being inspired by each other, it is about enjoying good food and laughter, having a great time and feeding your creative minds.

this first event will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and I am absolutely honored to be able to offer workshops by Annemarie, Claire and Saskia from the amazing blogs annemarie's haakblog, haken en meer, saar en mien. three ladies I admire for their crochet and craft work, photography, color matching skills and their (upcoming) books. on top of that, they are such lovely women and I am sure I am not the only one who can't wait to meet them and learn from them in real life!

if you're just as excited as I am about this wonderful opportunity for a lovely Sunday morning and a delicious lunch, please send an email to and you will receive all details you need to know to save your spot. to be able to keep things personal and cozy, space is limited so please be quick and sign up before they are gone.

phew, it feels good and exciting to finally have this news out and about, and be able to share more of it with you. of course I hope to see you and your creative friends on June 2nd in Amsterdam!

  4. Hé Maaike,
    wat ontzettend leuk dat je dit hebt georganiseerd. En wat jammer dat ik niet kan komen.....:-(
    Mijn oma wordt 31 mei 90 jaar dus daar kan ik niet onderuit (en ik woon te ver om eerst ff bij jou te komen).
    Heel veel plezier.
    Groetjes, Anne-Marie
