I am inspired by the people on the streets and what they carry with them, and of course how. That can be quite close to me for example in front of my doorstep, or when we are traveling.

#marchmeetthemaker, day 16

marchmeetthemakerday16,  studiorowold, jeugdland, handmadeinamsterdam, rowold, marchmeetthemakerHow do we relax?  For example, on Wednesday my kids have a half day school, and rest of the day we go to the edge of the city to a special place where the kids get a hammer and nails and go out to build huts.
And a bit of sunshine a cup of coffee and some company, what more could a proud mama ask for…
