little Dutch girl

First I must say a thank you for all the warm and lovely comments and e-mails I've had over the last week or so. I love reading them and appreciate them all and want to apologise for how neglectful I've been in answering them. I haven’t been great at keeping up my blog lately. No real excuse except winterblues and lots of activities. I had to do some shopping, decorating, cleaning, go to work and my favorite activity of all.. babysitting this lovely sweetheart.


I also need to spend some considerable time cleaning up my sewing room. Hmm..actually not only my sewingroom!!
I do have to write all my Christmas cards.

And then when I still was desperately looking for new inspiration to get my creative parts going again.... the mailman delivered me a package!
Look what was inside.

This O soooo adorable Dutch girl pegdoll made by Elizabeth from creative breathing. She also made the pretty notecard.
Thank you so much Elizabeth, you made me so very happy!

Cory, It makes me so happy to see my little Dutch girl actually in
The Netherlands! You have made my day! Elizabeth

Cory, You have the most beautiful Christmas cards in your country. We have nothing even close to this here! They would make a wonderful mosaic for us at flickr! E

Wat zijn ze leuk je hollandse meisjes! Je kleindochter kijkt alweer zo wijs de wereld in, heerlijk! En wat een prachtige gedetailleerde 'knijperpop'! (pegdol=knijperpop?)
Ik geloof dat de maakster echt iets precies voor jou op maat gemaakt heeft (niet dat ik er niet dolblij mee zou zijn, maar ik vind haar zo 'Corry', zoals ik je zie in je blog). Wat leuk! Dat kan toch allemaal maar in blogland!

Kris said...

I love both of your little dutch girls Corry. Both lovely! (Lovely photos too!)

Susan said...

Such a little angel--your beautiful little grandbaby girl. She is so sweet!

Eileen said...

I'm so glad you showed both of your little dutch girls.. both are so precious!

Your cards are wonderful too.

Your pegdoll is lovely too, as are your cards!

Twee prachtige meisjes op jouw blog. Maar ik vind je kleindochter toch echt de mooiste!
Ik zag dat je je als volger hebt aangemeld voor mijn ´oude´ blog rondrommelen, maar zoals je misschien gezien hebt ben ik verhuisd.
Ik dacht ik laat het je even weten anders zit je zo lang op feeds te wachten.
Groetjes en alvast een fijn weekend.

Your granddaughter is adorable. Holding new babies is the best feeling in the world. I need to clean my sewing room up as well. It is so messy I can hardly get anything done! Have a wonderful rest of 2008!

What a sweet baby, I can see why you enjoy watching her. And what a adorable doll. I have that music box in the picture. I bought it when I was in Holland a few years ago.
Merry Christmas!

Elly said...

Ik geloof dat ik ook onmiddelijk geïnspireerd ben! Wat een prachtig knijper-popje heb je gekregen! En zo héél toepasselijk! Je andere popje is ook een schatje zeg, kan me voorstellen dat je heel graag aan het oppassen bent! Ik wens jou en iedereen die je dierbaar is hele fijne dagen en een heel goed en creatief 2009!!!!

Kim김 said...

What a cute baby! No wonder you've not had time to post. ^^ And the peg doll is really delightful. Such detail!
