paper bird


I learned to fold this bird from my mother a long time ago. And even before I had a daughter, it proved to be a very handy skill. This way you can create a little toy anywhere and make children smile. A few years ago we made a trip to Bhutan. In one village I folded about 7 of these little birds. Some of these birds travelled ahead because the next day when we arrived in the next village, I saw children playing with my birds. All you need is a square piece of paper. And learn the folding instructions by heart ;)

This weekend the mindstyle magazine Happinez is having a festival. I made 40 meters of paper and fabric garlands in red, orange, pink, purple and a touch of gold, to decorate the venue. [La-Fete]-happinez-festival3 continue reading


life - love

Most of the time I am the one behind the lens. I have tons of pictures of Puck, with or without her dad, cat, bike. But sometimes I have to remind myself to ask somebody else to take some pictures of us, because time goes so fast. Looking at the end result I am very happy I asked my very dear and talented friend Daan to take them!
