Last Week

pretty tired and probably jet lagged, in the middle of laundry and clean up after coming home from Amsterdam, I am going through pictures on my phone and realize I am still buzzing from all that happened last week. we were two very happy guests at the beautiful wedding of a dear friend, spent wonderful times with family and friends over breakfast, latte, lunch, dinner and drinks. we loved the new Rijksmuseum, did some shopping and enjoyed the sunny weather. 
if are living abroad yourself or have been living, you will probably recognize this pattern...

and of course, last Sunday, create 'n date happened in Amsterdam! what a fantastic time we had together. while I am impatiently waiting for the pictures from our photographer, I can share with you the 4 pictures I took that day. clearly I was busy enjoying it all instead of taking pictures, haha. in total about 45 wonderful ladies attended this beautiful Sunday morning to create together and date together. the weather was nice and warm, we stayed outside all along. mostly blogging ladies, all very creative with yarn and more, sat together under the umbrella's like they were sitting there every Sunday for the past 4 years. amazing to see how this world wide web allows us to build a community online, that feels connected instantly as soon as we meet offline. 

when I receive the pictures I will post them and go into more detail about create 'n date. until then I have some prep stories and pictures, as well as a preview of the little project I took with me on the plane.

see you soon


  1. that store with all the goodies looks so fun, I wish i could visit it :)

  2. Wat een mooie foto's, heerlijk om te zien en heel inspirerend.
    Heb het haken net ontdekt (zie ook op mijn blog, ben eigenlijk quiltster) en ken jouw blog en IG dus ook pas sinds kort. De Create 'n Date, daar was ik dus te laat voor, maybe next time.... het ziet er gezellig uit, allemaal dames die busy, busy zijn met leuke en mooie dingen maken, fantastisch! Ben benieuwd naar de foto's die nog volgen.

  3. Hi Maaike,

    I had a great time at Create 'n Date last Sunday, it was lovely to meet you and all the other ladies. Well done for the fabulous organisation. I have posted some photos.
