This is us!


As you might have seen before, we've worked hard to finish and decorate our Urlaub stand at the Interior Design Fair (Woonbeurs) in Amsterdam last week, this is the result.
Apart from our own work we also sell the lovely handprinted textile products of Windstilte by Femke Veltkamp, she'll join us behind the counter tomorrow.
The Woonbeurs is open till sunday, it would be lovely to meet you there!

Woonbeurs peak

I finally had some time to walk around at the Woonbeurs myself yesterday and saw some pretty nice things! One that stood out was the food design by the friendly lads of Archichef. They show an inspiring example of how simple good snacks and wrapping can be (and it was yummy too!).
The 101 Woonideeen stand was very inspiring as well, such lovely patterns and colours!

From scratch

Today is Urlaubs first day at the Woonbeurs, I'm so excited! Before this could happen we had to build our stand from scratch... here a two 'before' pics.

An anonymous penpal...


We (at Urluab) found a cute little package in our mailbox... from an anonymous penpal...who could this sweet person be? (in the meantime, while figuring this out...we're nibbling and munching away...yum, thanks secret penpal!)

Project I... check!


I finished the decoration project at the Woonbeurs yesterday! Three rooms in which you can photograph yourself, two of them in the pics above (including my own fave super model, M ;-)) To see all three rooms and take your own photos, come and visite the Woonbeurs from 25-30 september in Amsterdam!



Spend the whole day yesterday on making props for a decoration project  I'm doing for the Woonbeurs/ Interior Design Fair (yes, I'm apart from the Urlaub shop also doing another project at the woonbeurs) in Amsterdam next week.

It might be possible (it's actually highly possible) that during this whole event, I won't be able to post as often as I normally do... bare with me please ;-)

Free friday: Tomato!


These bright yummy fellas all came from my veggie plot, hurray for the tomato plants!



It's finally time... I can tell you about a big project me and Ellen Vesters have been working on...

We'll be at the Woonbeurs (Interior Design Fair) in Amsterdam with the launch of our illustrations and concept store Urlaub! You can find us from 25 till 30 september, live screen printing new goodies and of course with our own products (prints, postcards, diy kits and so on). You can also join a bunch of workshops we're giving.
We are working hard to open a 'real' shop in Utrecht but are still looking for a good space, fingers crossed...

The website is up: For now, only a front page but you can subscribe to our newsletter and we'll keep you posted!

More information on time, where and how, next week!

Working on...


... a paper project for a client (can't tell more yet), an illustration for Margriet Magazine and prep for the Rai Woonbeurs (Interior design fair in Amsterdam) in the third week of september. 

Last days of summer

This weekend I enjoyed the last days of summer to the fullest! I've been to the beach (first time this summer, just in time) and Noorderlicht in Amsterdam. They say autumn is coming this week, I think now I can handle it ;-)

New Illustration Courses / Illustratie Cursus!


Wanna make cool stuff like this? Join one of my illustration course starting the third week of september in Utrecht! We'll explore all kinds of materials, techniques and ways to illustrate.
There's a starter course and advanced course. The last one also involves working on the computer so it's best when you have a tiny bit experience with photoshop or time to catch up with a tutorial I made specially for this course.
For more info, see the website of the UCK.

Wil je ook zulke leuke dingen maken? Schrijf je in voor een van mijn illustratie cursus die starten in de derde week van september! 
We gaan verschillende materialen, technieken en manieren van illustreren ontdekken.
Er is een beginners cursus Illustratie (een in Utrecht en ook een in Leidsche Rijn) en een gevorderden cursus Illustratie en Digitaal. In deze laatste gaan we ook werken met de computer en is het handig als je een klein beetje basis kennis photoshop hebt of tijd om jezelf even bij te spijkeren met de handleiding die ik speciaal voor deze cursus geschreven heb.
Voor meer info, zie de website van het UCK.

Hope to see you there!



This morning I found this sweet little package on my pillow (after bunnies my fave animal is the sheep)... Can't think of a better way to start the day! =:+

This weekend the UCK hosted a little theater/ quiz with cocktails (virgin) at the Uitfeest to promote their lessons and courses. I was responsible for the little wagon and decoration... ;-)
It was fun!
