Ja, dit jaar maakten we de bomen zowaar in korte broek in de zon.
Ieder jaar gaan de eerste kerstbomen al in september de deur uit.
Speciaal voor het Snor Festival van a.s. zondag, maakten we weer een mooie en vooral stoere serie.
Het is immer altijd fijn als je kunt kiezen...
Behalve bomen, nemen we ook krukjes, vestjes, kussens, kapstokjes, kaarten, signs en nog veel meer mee.
Mocht je van plan zijn om zondag naar Vuren af te reizen en een bezoek te brengen aan het Snor Festival en de Yvestown fair, houdt er dan rekening mee dat de aanvangstijd is gewijzigd in 13:00 uur. Dus iedereen kan gewoon een beetje uitslapen.
Yes, this year we made the trees actually in shorts in the sun.
Every year, the first wooden x-mas trees are shipped already in September.
Especially for the Snor Festival coming Sunday we made a tough series.
It's always nice when you can choose...
Besides trees, we bring stools, cardigans, pillows, pegs, postcards, signs and much more with us.
So if you've planned to visit the Snor Festival & Yvestownfair, keep in mind the starting time is changed to 13:00 PM. You can still enjoy a quiet Sunday morning.
See you on Sunday!
"I am in awe with it..."
This is just a part of the sweet mail from Cristina from Barcelona, she's happy with her new harlequin stool.
It's satisfying to make something out of nothing, just with some wood and some wool, creating something with your hands. I love my job.
Moreover the mail I often get when a stool has arrived at it's destination, makes it even better.
People all over the world buy something in my Etsy shop and Í still think it's amazing to receive a very personal thank you mail, once it has arrived.
So good to know, there are so many nice folks in the world, who take the time to send a personal thanks.
I really appreciate it very much...

Pippa asked me if I could make her a black wood & wooly cardigan.
She is happy with the result and it's so cool to see the totally different style of the black version.
The two of us went into the polder yesterday and I made a photoshoot of her!
We had lots of fun together and I think Pippa looks pretty cool!
If you like to make your own wood & wooly cardigan, you can buy the P A T T E R N in my Etsy shop. The cardigan pattern is available in Dutch and English.

Making sweet Snor Festival stuff, is a very good reason to use the enormous spool with raspberry wool I brought from Marrakech!
This tiny baby waistcoat is another version of the wood & wooly cardigan p a t t e r n.
I take it to the Yvestown market and will try to write this pattern before next Sunday.
PS: Lidia, Aukje, Martina, Lisanne, Maria, Vanessa, Hannah, Kit, Mirjam & Lize are the winners of the free Snor Festival tickets. Please send me your address details, so I can send the tickets before Sunday. Looking forward to meet you!

A wonderful day at the beach.
My sweet friend Rosa has a charming summerhouse at the beach.
It gives you the ultimate holiday feeling.
A peaceful place and around the corner the long and wide beaches and wooded dunes.
The Dutch coast is so incredibly beautiful!
