Now I know I've always said I'm a tea-lover. Especially redbush tea. And that's very true. In the evening. In the morning I like to drink a cup of coffee. At work, we only have 'instant'-coffee. It's nothing like the real stuff but it is better than no coffee at all.

I like my coffee black. The black gold. When I started drinking it, I used both milk and sugar. Then I left home as a student, living in a studenthouse, depending on just so many guilders a month. One morning the sugar was finished. So I used my coffee with just (coffee)milk. After a while I decided I didn't need the coffeemilk either. Was also cheaper... being a student, you know. So that's how I started to drink my coffee black. How do you drink yours?

Just to say...

Hello. This stamp is just to say... whatever you want to whoever you want. I just want to say: I've been out of the stampcarving 'business' for two months, so to give myself an easy start I'm back in my comfortzone; cats. But that sentence is a little bit too long to fit in the stamp. So I just put it here. And we will see what this stamp will be used for in future.

Tea? Yes! Redbush tea, ofcourse.


We had a snake in our garden.
It wasn't a big one, but walking to the car in the dark I saw something crawling on the floor and I decided to jump over it.
Good decision.

So, a new idea for an alphabet-stamp was born. That's how it goes.

size 3 x 4 centimeters

And again, a small piece of art where there was nothing, a couple of hours ago.

Everybody can do it :-)


Namestamp for a sweet cupcake... ehh, girl ;-).

Letters are about 9mm (the 'e'), so not too small.
I'm practising in secret on 5mm or smaller ones.
It's still no great success: just keep on cutting!

K is for Kevin

My husband.
My best best friend.
My dushi ;-)

'I am making a stamp of your portrait, just like the one I made of myself the other day.'
'Shouldn't you take a closer look at me then?'
'No, I'm doing it by heart, I know you.'
'We have a lot of pictures...'
'No thank you, this is not a picture, this is a quick drawing (again) like the one I made of myself the other day.'

'Are you sure this is me..?'



in his favorite color :-)

Drifting cat

I love cats, I think I mentioned that before. 
I don't have one myself.
I think I mentioned that before too...

So every once in a while I make my own cat :-)
(Check the labels for 'cats'.)

First I made the drawing and started cutting:

After the first impression I decided to also cut out the rest of the face:

Then I glued it onto a piece of original Aruba driftwood ;-)

First there's nothing and then there's your own piece of art :-)

'C' is for Cat
That's clear...
What do you think?
Feel an alphabet coming up?
(You never know...)


Sandra is a schoolteacher. But in her spare-time, she's also a scoutinggirl :-). I don't know much about scouting, but I do know people use different names, being a scoutingleader. And Sandra is one. So for the namestamp she ordered, she asked me to use the caracter of her scoutingname.
