On Sunday April 1 a  ++PLUSTWEE exhibition is held at 'Open Atelier nr 103' from 11 till 16.30 h. (Dorpsstraat 103, Zuidlaarderveen). Also some solo work of Marjolein and me will be shown and can be bought.

WONEN&CO review
We had such great successes and reactions on our new collection at the Wonen&Co fair. People were amazed by our colour combinations and by our inspiration from aerial photographs of Dutch landscapes. The pictures of the cushions on my Pinterest have been repinned over hunderd times already!
We've met some nice designers too: sweet and modest Jildou Lindhout of Studio Zijn with her lamp Ivy and we had many laughs with lovely crazy sweet tooth William van der Velde aka Kunsteboer , who couldn't keep away from our softness (the cushions) and our sweet treats :-)

Come and meet us on Sunday 1st of April in Zuidlaarderveen!

While I was practising Photoshop techniques mixing photography and drawing I created this picture. It may not be perfect but I liked it anyway.
It's big enough to use it as a desktop (bureaublad) picture. It's free! If you like it just click on the picture and save it in your computer. Enjoy!

Please note there's a one question survey in the side bar. Would you be so kind...? Thank you!


fairly ready

Ah, I see the picture shows only 5 cushions, we have six!

++ Plustwee is ready for the Ontmoetdesign (meet design) Fair next Thursday in Groningen!
Marjolein and I will be presenting six hand felt and hand printed cushions, ready to be admired and sold. 

We worked hard as we only got 4 weeks to get ready for the fair, but the work process and atmosphere between us was great! We had fun, I hope you like the results. I'd love to hear from you what you think of it: encouragements and critisism are needed - always, but especially when presenting something new. Thank you.

Please pay a visit to our new website, where in a short while you can see and order the 40x60cm cushions as well.
