Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things In Life, In March.

Time for my March favorites! This is a drawing of all the little things that were making me happy in March. Nothing made me happier last month (or this month!) than new music from Ben Howard! In fact, in less than 2 hours I’ll be watching his live stream concert so please do not disturb around that time.😬
Other things that I loved about March included my regular cold water dips in the river, a lot of picnicking (plus a lot @mr.moonen_wijnhandel wine) and, of course, my plants!⁠🌱
I hope you also had a good month and are having a happy & healthy April so far! Have a lovely day! ⁠💚

A Hat For Bernie, In Drawings.

Bernie Sanders Mittens, In Drawings.

This time no What I Wore drawing, but What Bernie Wore!

I loved Bernie’s cozy and comfy style yesterday (I have a thing for cute mittens!) and it’s so funny that this outfit is going viral! I actually dress like this most days during winter.. .hmmm 🤔
I did add a hat because I felt it was missing from his look. What did you think of the inauguration yesterday?⁠💙💜

Hello Winter!

Today is the first official day of winter (on the Northern hemisphere that is). And although this one will be a little (or a lot) different from other years, there’s still so much to enjoy. For starters: the days will start to get longer again, hurray!! And what about candles, cozy knitwear, yummy comfort food and long winter walks followed by hot drinks? (Mulled wine is my favourite!) Winter can also be a time to recharge, find new inspiration and make plans. Are you as excited for the start of winter as I am? I would love to hear it and why.

Finding Joy In The Little Things, In Drawings.

Just a cute little drawing of a few small things that make me happy. I could just have easily gone for “Big things that make me very sad and worried” at the moment, but I chose not to do that. Have a good and safe day! ⁠💚

Hello Winter!

Today is the first day of winter (if you’re in the Northern hemisphere like me). Soon the days will start to get longer again, but until then I love candles and the pretty Christmas lights everywhere. I also love game nights with mulled wine, staying in and keeping warm with a hot water bottle, drinking tea and reading a book or having a Netflix night. I will try to go outside a lot to go ice skating for example, or have a nice winter walk, preferably in a snow covered landscape (followed by  more mulled wine of course 😉 )

What are some of the things that you love about winter?

 

Hello!

Meet The Maker: A Little Bit About Me.

Today is World Hello Day and I though this would be a good day for me to say hello, and tell you a little bit about myself for those of you who are new here. In the form of an illustration, of course 😉  The book you see is The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho, one of my all time favourites.

More is more!

More is More Fashion Style: Make it fun and colorful!

Here is a “portrait” of one of my friends, who is a real “more is more’ type of girl: very colorful, with big hair, a big heart and big personality! She like bold prints, bright colors, polka dots and vintage elements. As you can hopefully see, I had a lot of fun drawing her style.🌼 This illustration was so popular on Instragam that I also turned it into a postcard.
