Inspiration Monday

Dear spring, bring it on. Pretty please. Now that it’s march there’s no stopping the spring-butterflies in my stomach. I can’t wait to get rid of my sweaters for a few months. Or to sit outside and eat ice cream. Or just have dinner on my balcony. I’m ready. And so is this week’s Inspiration Monday. Enjoy!

Recap: On this rollercoaster that I’m in

That’s what my life pretty much always looks like. A rollercoaster. I went through some heavy ups and downs lately and although I know that’s all part of the job and the life I’m living, sometimes it’s just a little too much. Like this past month. Click through to find out more.

Guest-post for Team Confetti #2: Now it’s up to you!

First of all, I want to shout out a big ‘thank you’ to all of the wonderful comments I got on my first guest-post of last month. I enjoyed reading your compliments and answering your questions SO much. Olga said it to me earlier, but now I know firsthand that it’s true: Team Confetti readers are the best readers in the world. Thank you!

So last week I showed you how I do my work as an illustrator. But ‘making pretty things’ isn’t all that I do. I like to create experiences too. And that can mean anything really; from the allround styling and design of a big event (a project that’s still on my designer’s bucket list) to creating a world wide llama invasion. I like to make people experience something. And that’s why this month you’ll be getting to work with ‘my way of working’. Really? Yes, really! But how? Well, with a free printable I created especially for Team Confetti! Read on for more details and images!

Inspiration Monday

Happy monday everyone! I hope your weekend has been as good as mine. I spent the weekend in a cottage in an attempt to flee ‘carnaval'; a multiple-day Dutch holiday that only takes place in part of the country (mine to be exact) and which I absolutely despise. So I was ‘forced’ to flee and relax all weekend. Oh, poor me. But after such a relaxing weekend I can’t wait to start another work week, which will be pretty eventful. Tomorrow, my second guest-post for Team Confetti will be published and later this week I will finally share the work I made for the Boekieboekie illustration contest. So stay tuned for some awesomeness. But not before I’ve shared my weekly inspiration with you.
