This is a market for handmade products in the Shelter in Park Spoor Noord in Antwerp. The first edition in 2013 will take place on the 24th of March. Hoera will be there as well: come by to say hi!

Creative Workshops in Antwerp

Last week I visited Atelier Pistolet, a pop-up shop in the Jezusstraat 48 in Antwerp. This shop is open from March to May 2013. The idea behind this popup shop is, that it is not only selling handmade jewelry, accessoires, and other gadgets, it is also organising a couple of creative workshops: drawing, crochet, mosaïc, etc. More information on the facebook page of Atelier Pistolet.

iPad sleeve in magazine Buitenleven

Yesterday I received a copy of a magazine called Buitenleven ('Outside living' in Dutch), which is published by the Dutch organization ANWB. A couple of weeks ago, they asked me permission to publish a picture and description of one of my upcycled iPad sleeves in their Spring edition. Which I couldn't reject, of course.

I started reading the magazine, and I must say: I love it. I am not a hobby gardener, but this magazine is about 'green' lifestyle, sustainable food, cooking, gardening, nature and so forth. And it contains beautiful images of flowers, people, nature, animals, and food.

Many thanks to Buitenleven for their interest in my upcycled creations!
