The last few weeks have been so much fun! The theater play that I’ve been working on premiered and had some great reviews! It was my birthday last week, I was featured in the amazing Felt magazine and my boyfriend just arrived yesterday!

So I am at a pretty happy place right now:) And next week we’ll be going on a road trip for two weeks, so any suggestions on thing we really need to see are more then welcome!

Here are some pictures of my last week:

Birthday balloons and Central Park in the sun

Going to Swan Lake at the opera and discovering a world of chocolate at Max Brenner

And a wonderful week would not be complete with some new crafts!

Happy Birthday To Me!
it’s my birthday today!! And I am feeling so lucky to be able to celebrate it in New York! 
And the best part of it is: My birthday is actually longer now because of the time difference! So in Holland I am 26 and in New York I’m still 25(well at least for 5 more hours) ;)
 
It has been an amazing past year and I am looking forward to discovering what it’s like to be 26!
 
Happy June 13 everyone!

30 Before 30

Today is my 25th birthday!And as a present to myself, I made a 30 before 30 list. I know it’s not the most original idea, but I just always wanted to make a list of all the things I want to do and give myself a deadline so I can’t back out.
It took me a while to come up with 30 things, because I wanted to keep the list realistic and achievable. 

This is my final list:

1. Start a portret photography project
2. Go to Egypt and visit the piramids
3. Get paid to take photographs
4. Learn to speak spanish
5. Sell something I made
6. Go Paintballing
7. Live in a different country (for a minimum of two months)
8. Go to a fashion show
9. Get a new tattoo
10. Watch 200 movies from the top 250 movies on IMDB
11. Do a blog give away
12. Get my drivers license
13. Go on a roadtrip
14. Be a setdresser(assistent/intern) at a tv show or movie
15. Learn to sing
16. Revisit New York
17. Join a photography challenge/contest
18. Have a spa day and get a massage
19. Make my own shoes
20. Go to a casino
21. See a ballet
22. Cook a proper three course meal
23. Go horsebackriding
24. Make a wall art piece that I would hang in my living room
25. Be published in a magazine or newspaper
26. Get my bachelor
27. Travel to a Spanish speaking country to practice my Spanish(see number 4)
28. Make something out of clay

Birthday Wishes
It was my boyfriends birthday yesterday and as a surprise, I made him this glow in the dark wall art. I bought some glowsticks at Xenos and taped them to our bedroom wall. He was really surprised and liked it very much :) 

It was pretty easy to do, so if you have a birthday of a friend or relative coming up, just buy some glow sticks and be creative, you will find that it’s fun to do and it looks pretty amazing at night!

My Newest Toy
my newest toy

I already got my birthday present from my boyfriend, even though my birthday isn’t around yet. He got me a Wacom Pen tablet! And I am so happy with it! I am not very good at drawing, so I will have to practice. But it will come in so handy when I use photoshop. This is the best present ever!


And here you go, my first drawing with the Pen tablet ever! Not my best work by far, but I just wanted to share this proud moment with you.
