Black and orange bliss.

Thank you for your kind welcomings. It feels gooooood to be back with you.
I`m listening to Beth Gibbons' CD 'Out of season'. A remarkable musical sensation this work, the eerieness of Gibbons' voice and random low fi-side-noises in the songs give me shivers of delight. The first song begins with 'God knows how I adore life...'. Mais oui!
While we were away my little Lieveke had her first birthday, but we had a little pre-party with the family here. Words fall short to describe my sentiments but this sweet and intimate photo captures a glance of the true bliss within her that we celebrated:

Every one knows I`m a warm color-freak. But if I was forced to choose only two colors (no, not just one, imposs!) I would go for black (i was a teenager in the 80`s guys and yes New Wave stuck to me) and orange (oh happy day). Here are some images that please my eager eyes, one of an attractively woven card from Gabriel that now adorns my leather pattern folder and one of a neo-dada-manneke ('little man'), an image given to me by my gifted Belgian friend Daniel:

And here is some more crafty stuff, a couple of funky chunky big bags and my latest baby-kimono-jacket (lots of B&O bien sur). All that is available at CRAFTWERK my pretties, tomorrow from 6 to 9 pm in St Kevin`s arcade in Auckland, come come and enjoy!

I blow you a black and orange kiss
