A very special Birthday

I could not have wished for a nicer celebration for Bloesem's FIFTH year anniversary than the lunch that was given to me today by de 'Drukke Dames' (= Busy Ladies) in the design and art shop Friday Next in Amsterdam. 

When Jurianne Matter heard about me coming to the Netherlands this month she immediately emailed me with an invitation for a get-together with some of her creative friends. Most of them I had met online during the last five years but none of them in person before.

It felt like a real blind-date, exciting and inspiring!

And this blind-date was a just wonderful and exactly how I like it, personal, intimate, honest and real. Not a big party but simply enjoying the fact that Bloesem has done this for me... bringing me together with super creative and talented people:

Thank You!
