Welcome to my blog!
This blog is meant to share with you what I’ve created, sometimes inspired by someone else’s creative ideas and building from that, sometimes just riding the wave of urgent creativity that sometimes sweeps me off my feet, taking me away to hours of dedicated – and, I admit, sometimes slightly obsessive – “creating”. The reason I’m posting these things on a blog, is that I carry within me the deep conviction that every person has at least some creativity inside him or herself, combined with the ability to enjoy beauty; maybe you’re already aware of it, but if not then perhaps it can be “triggered” by enjoying the creative ideas of others.
As for me, I have a deep, inexplicably ardent love for colors and color combinations – in every possible way: clothing & accessories, decorating my house, the way I design Powerpoint presentations at work. And so on and so forth. It’s hard to explain, but it’s as if color is like some kind of oxygen for my soul.
Since this is the introductory post, I’ll share a little personal information, just this once… My name is Katja, I’m from the Netherlands and I was born in 1971 (so you do the math). I’ve always been creative. At the moment I enjoy photography and altering images creatively, I’ve been writing stories and poetry, and I love to combine these to create what I call photo poetry – see image below for an example. I’ve dabbled in decoupage and napkin technique, I’ve designed and made my own accessories and right now I’m discovering and exploring the wonderful world of paper crafts. But most of all, I love to try and discover new ways to be creative!
Meanwhile, I’ll keep building and expanding this blog; which may take a while since I have to start from scratch. So please, subscribe to my blog! It’s free, and it’ll ensure that you won’t miss a single post.
Feel free to comment on any of my posts, I’d love to hear from you all!
Thanks so much,
