Just busy…

I haven’t been around for the past days, because I’m just busy. Kids are getting ready for school which starts next tuesday and I am trying to get some things done before they leave the house during the day again…

Yseterday I had a workshop on butterflies in this great nature resort here in the Netherlands. It was fun and I’ve learned a lot on butterflies, but was so tired. I had a hard time listening and was glad that the afternoon was outside. Theory is fine, but I just love being outdoors…

Unfortunately there weren’t that many butterflies, so we searched for other insects and found this beautiful grasshopper, many wasps, bees and everything in between. And many, many spiders…

I fell asleep on the bus home and was glad I finally was able to get some rest when I finally made it home. I didn’t get much housework done yesterday, so had a busy day today.

Oh, but I did manage to get some felting done this evening, will post a pic of it tomorrow…

Completed the website layout

Mom & Dad

Today I’ve worked on the layout of this site, I think it’s almost done now. Just a few things here and there and I am satisfied… But for how long? I’ve worked and still work on the layout of my Dutch website, I think it’s never done. But hey, I need to keep myself busy, right?

It’s tuesday, which means garbage day and the last tuesday of this summer vacation. Next week the kids will be back in school again and I have the house to myself. So I’ve been throwing out my kids summer stash of everything they collected over the past few weeks. The kitchen is empty again and we’ll get there in the living room too.

Also done this weeks groceries, for the first time in weeks I had to think on what the kids need for school… Strange how they nutritional habits change when they have a school break. So milk & cereal is back and cheese & bread.

Working on a few more websites today as well… Going through some pictures of my summer holiday and found this one of my parents. Taken last week in Bourtange in Groningen. Miss them…

 

Hello world!

Bourtange

My first post on this blog… Hmmm… Where shall I start?

Well, maybe I should just tell you something on my journey on the internet. This started years ago in 1989. My first was geolution.nl and I’ve been working on it ever since. It started out as a business page on what GEOlution did but grew to be an online encyclopedia on nature and animals. I got involved in several YAHOO crafts groups, MSN communities and other fora on arts & crafts. I love crafts, did I mention that already? I hope to show off my work on this site…

Not much later I got involved in scrapbooking and was one of the first international scrapbook consultants for a company called Top Line Creations. I won a contest on making the best scrapbooking website and one on creating a 3d box with memories. I got involved in digital scrapbooking and got to work with many great scrapbook designers and scrapbook stores as their creative team.

Soon after all this I started teaching online classes at My Creative Classroom, Creative Crafts Classes and more recent Loomers. Now I got over 50 websites on many different subjects.

In 2014 I started to take classes to become a natural healer and finished bach-blossom therapy, aromatherapy, herbology and demathology on a natural basis. I’ve opened my practice this summer and added a few websites on the subject too.

As you see, I love the internet. I’m online most of my working hours creating something online. So maybe I’ll see you here…
