Happy Easter to you!

Hi there,

Just before heading to bed quickly sharing some of my latest handmade artist trading cards with you and some pictures from the garden flowers from early spring. I made a quick wreath from pruned willow branches and added it to the fence my dear husband made on our terrace. Three years ago our Easter was very much different as we then had to spend the holidays in the hospital because my husband had heart surgery then and had to stay there almost one month. We are thankful that he made it and God blessed him with a very good surgeon. My husband is the best man on earthπŸ’“!

I also added some branches behind a wall basket filled with pansies. I thought that is pretty and Easter fancy. I hope you like the eyecandy and I will make my blogpost short today.

Happy Easter πŸ’—πŸ’›to you and blessings from the Netherlands, where it's pretty cold and freezing temperatures during the nights are expected! Of course my hydrangea buds will freeze off yet again this year πŸ˜•

Playing with wires

Handmade memory wire bracelets with purple and blue beads by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Dear reader,

It's in the middle of the night here in the Netherlands. I can't sleep so I decided to break the circle and get up and update my blog and then try to get back to sleep again.

I wanted to share some of my latest handmade memory wire bracelets with you as well as a little beaded keychain I created. It's all created in blue and purple. I shared the blue memory wire bracelet with the feathers  the other day.

I'm starting to become addicted on making memory wire bracelets lately, haha. A lot of beads go into them though, so if you want to get rid of your bead stash...... start making one of your own.😁 There are tons of memory wire bracelet tutorials to find on YouTube. I just share the inspiration here with you😎. I hope you like my bracelets! I also fabricated a simple blue silver toned keychain with dangling beads, lace and trimmings. I use all kinds of beads in my projects, both cheap and expensive and like to match them together. I think all materials have a beauty of their own. I hope you can agree with me!

Enjoy the eyecandy! I'm going to try to get some sleep again! Happy Sunday to you!

Again Marie

Hello there anyone who reads this in cyberspace! I hope this little share of eyecandy finds you well!

It is already one week later since my last blogpost! Where does time go?! I keep wondering about it, and still that doesn't seem to help.😁 It flies soooooo fast! Can anyone stop it please, haha?

Here is my favorite muse Marie-Antoinette again on my latest handmade artist trading card/ACEO. Marie is wearing a beautiful pink gown with orange flowers and wears it proudly while being on a walk through her beloved flower garden of pink and salmon florals. It appears she's dreaming a little dream just like I did when I was creating her setting on this little artcard. Enjoy the eyecandy!
