I know... I've been a bad, bad blogger! More than a week since my last post! So it's about time to update a little. Lat weekend I've been demonstrating at the KKD at Kars in Ochten. I had a wonderful time! I was asked to demonstrate with Prima products... well, haha, of course I said YES! I just love their products!
It were 2 days of fun, laughter and a lot of talking. I was sitting between my friends Bonnette on my right and Corinne on my left and in front of Tim Holtz. Not that I saw a lot of him though... There was a constant crowd of women around his table and the fist glimps I got from him was around 3 p.m. on sunday, hehe! But hey, who can you blame. The man makes great stuff so I can imagine everybody wants to have a look at his demo.
Met a lot of people I know, people I only knew from their blogs so far like Nili (so fun to meet her!) and new people!! I had a nice dinner with Corinne and Tanya on sunday evneing and a meeting with Kirsten from CmF on monday evening. So it was a busy but good weekend!!
Here's one of the projects I made for the demonstration. The frame was painted white when I bought it. I covered it with Prima paper, then stamped around the edges and added the flowers. Everything is Prima except for the text-plate (Deja-Views) and the diamonds (Make Me).
Used real screws to attache the little plate.
I returned home yesterday and I was hardly in or the postman came with a box from the US! It was my price for winning OLW! Gina from Sweet Spuds send me an awesome kit with paper, chipboard, letters and lots of fun little goodies! Can't wait to start creating with that!
Oh, and I have a fun little story I want to share :)
The sunday before last my parents in law visited us and they took the 3 children from my sister in law along since they were babysitting them. The next day Marlijn (who is 5! years old) spend lunch at my mom's house because Erik and I had to go to the funeral. She told my mom about her other grandparents and cousins visit the day before. They had the following little conversation:
Marlijn: Grandma Marry and grandpa Reijer came to visit us yesterday and they brought Jorik and Nienke with them because aunt Hellen and uncle Koen went away for the weekend...
My mom: Oh, how fun! and Stijn? did they bring Stijn along too?
Marlijn (quit annoyed): Well, yes... of course they brought Stijn!! The boy is only 4 years old! You can't leave a child like that home alone, can you!!??
Haha, she's a little smarty-pants and she crackes me up!!
I have to scrap that! Not sure yet how I'm going to do that, but I will!
That's it for now!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hoi Birgit, leuk je in het echt gezien te hebben in Ochten (was er samen met Tessa) Zag thuis pas op je kaartje waar je woont. Wat een klein wereldje, ik heb ik Warffum gewoond ;-) Gave dingen had je gemaakt met de primaspullen. Vooral die paintables had je cool gebruikt. Ben bang dat ik ze nu toch ook wil gebruiken, bedankt voor de inspiratie!
