Bookstore and Winner


Made a quick visit to Barnes & Noble today to pick up a christmas gift for my love. Wondered off to the crafts section and spotted my book on the shelves! It was a funny feeling seeing my work displayed. There were only 2 copies, did they stock only a few or did they flew off the shelves?

Speaking of my book, the giveaway has ended and a random number generator picked a winner! Comment number 19 is the lucky one: Catherine! I will send you an email to get your mailing address.

Those who didn't win, you can ofcourse get your copy at your local bookstore, or order it from my site and get a signed copy!

I miss Amsterdam


I love living in New York, but there are times i miss my old city. Maybe it has something to do with the holiday season that makes the missing even more. I miss Amsterdam with it's lovely canals and those gorgeous canal houses. I wish i could buzz myself over and have an afternoon with friends, drinking coffee, chatting away and walking through the city. Thinking about that gave me the inspiration to make some illustrations of those wonderful canal houses.

Bookrelease 100 applique motifs


I was thinking of doing some sort of virtual book release party here on my blog, but i wasn't really sure how to go about it and what to do and what not, so forget about it. It's here. It's out. My first book. In print. On the bookshelves. I'm doing a happy dance. I haven't stopped by the bookstore yet to spot my book, but i will do soon!

So what about a giveaway? Sounds good? Want to get a free signed copy of 100 applique motifs?
