Week(s) of happy celebrations. I celebrated my birthday on Monday with lots of love, family, good friends, laughter and sun…:-)
Later on the day we took a long walk at one of our favorite places outside of Amsterdam. There we saw a huge group of Swans floating on the water. Never saw it before. It was a pure magic.
Thank you FRANKIE Magazine for publishing my work on the next day- great timing..;-)

mrx interview Little Treasures: Made by Hand

I am so thrilled to be in Pia Jane Bijkerk’s new book: “Little Treasures: Made by Hand”
Her book is a self publishing adventure: Pia has written and photographed everything herself.
She wrote a lovely story about my me, it made me smile and missing her being in Amsterdam even more…

I gave Pia my first whale after she interviewed me to her first book. I was very moved to know that this whale found himself in the room of Pia’s little girl…
This is her second book that I’m mentioned in- so wonderful–Thank you Dear Pia!

Thank you Joetta Maue for asking me to interview  for the one and only Mr. X Stitch….:-)
