So now you can see me move around in my studio, and hear me talk :-)
I had a good laugh watching myself, it looks so serious. And all I really want are playfull times and fun art. But I love it, it shows my studio from the heart, with this great music from Bjork.

Yes, I counted the days this week.
One more day in our holiday and on Monday work and school starts.
Seven weeks of spending almost no time alone in my studio, almost no work done makes me a bit itchy. Time to get my head and hands on a new project. During summer I just see my soap bubbly ideas floating on the far reach of my view. I want to be able to focus again.
No complains though, I loved this quite and mild summer, the nice times we had together.
One of the things I really love is thrift shopping, this is my treasure from my last trip,for four Euro I had lots of fun in the store.
And it's so funny that I love these kitsch, things I really hated as a girl and young adult. Now I'm on a quest to find out what the magic in kitsch is all about. There is a part that makes me like it.
And buy them for inspiration, and I always can use little things in an installation, can't I?
And now I can re-read the Trojan war, maybe I learn some tricks to feel more powerful as a little woman in a big-big world.
Love and loud rock music for everybody, with a bit of sparkly glitter.

During the last three summers, I joined the Loreley-witch camp. )( /www.reclaimingloreley.com/
These were great times, made a lot of friends from all over the world and learned a lot, about the Goddess,elements, magic, tools and rituals. Did a lot of inner work, danced by the fire, laughed a lot and cried a bit. Magic weeks in my life.
This year I won't be there, but will be sending lots of love to all my friends .
And I really enjoy our holiday at home, today we went on a day-trip to Leiden.
We visited the National museum of antiquities. (www.rmo.nl)
That was so impressive, to see all these beautiful crafted things from thousands and thousands of years ago. So much magic there, Egyptian and Roman ritual tools and offer plates. Altars for the dutch Goddess Nehalenia, the Hecate-vase, all those Gods and Goddesses. The believe of people in an other world behind death.
The knowledge and civilisation in the near East, so long ago. Long before a civilisation in Europe, I so much wish we could live in peace all over the world. And see the beauty in each other and love and care for our Earth.
It is possible, I know.
