Behind the scenes ‘photoshoot’ Ouders van Nu

fotoThis is a ‘behind the scenes photo’ of a ‘real’ photoshoot at our place two weeks ago. Mette her nursery was photographed for Dutch magazine ‘Ouders van Nu‘.
It was nice having stylist Marieke from Pimpelwit and photographer Renee at our place for the photoshoot. It will be published in the august issue. I am curious about the final result.

Exchange Project: Studio Escargot



We made a lot new friends lately! We have got of course Sophie the giraffe, but also Mabel the giraffe (from Miga de the Pan available at Confetti) Apie the monkey, an owl, a whale, an elephant,  the ‘I love you to the moon and back’ bunnies, Artis the Partis and now this cute couple joined the gang; ballerina & Pierrot! They are so pretty don’t you think? They are made by stylist Sophia Smeekens. She makes beautiful dolls like these.

I am an Instragram addict (my love told me so) and that is how I met Sophia and her work and asked her if she wanted to join my exchange project. I was so happy! And in the future I would love to have a doll with clothes made with the fabric from Mette’s jumper she wore the first day when she was born.

Here you can find Studio Escargot and here her Etsy shop and of course the FB page.

Work in progress


Soon available in the new online shop. Busy to get everything finished and show you all the new items!

Our first Easter family trip


 This Easter weekend we had our first family trip. We went to the lovely and smallest island Vlieland in the north of the Netherlands. It has just one street with some shops and small hotels and restaurants the rest is pure nature, only forest and beach. The weather was freezing but nice, big snow flakes or a the sun shining through the clouds.

We stayed at a really nice old fashioned and cosy hotel, Hotel Golfzang, fireplace, yummy breakfast, nice garden. We rented bikes, one cargo bike where Mette could sleep in and one ‘normal’ bike. We bicycled the whole island, went to the beach, ate pancakes, had a walk in the forest and went to bed early. We booked a night extra because we enjoyed it so much. Only family time, no work, no phone calls, just perfect!

If I could save time in a bottle,…

Leica Mette 5

I want to save every moment with Mette, her first smile, how she grows (we make photos every week when we have our family bath in the weekend to keep track) how it feels to breastfeed her, to hear the sweet sounds she makes, the songs I sing and hum, everything with us together in the comfort of our home now as a family, the trips we make, all milestones. I want to keep it somewhere to never forget.

I am printing out photos, making a first year baby book and bought this great ‘My life story’ book where you can write down a whole life’s journey. I will keep this journal for Mette until a certain age (18?, 35? a special moment, giving birth herself?) and give it to her to fill in the rest. Plus we are thinking about another blog to save all the beautiful photos Joey is taking. (very much inspired by this blog; The road is home, love it)

And now I discovered the Time Capsule!

I love the idea of the Time Capsule. Keep your treasures and memories of a special moments in this box. The box comes with beautiful designed stationary like a notebook, wrapping paper, tape and more.

The Time Capsule is designed by Anouk van der El, Venour, Mae Engelgeer (Yes, we know her, she makes the beatiful textile designs like the towels I sell at minishop Confetti) and Marloes Sijm.

They will be available at Minishop Confetti soon. They are €34,95. If you wish to pre order just send me an e-mail or leave a comment.

(If I could save time in a bottle,.. is my mothers’ favourite song, the lyrics are beautiful)

Enjoying every minute of ‘nous’



This is what I do,….enjoying every minute of us three! The pink cloud is no fairytale story and I am living it. Time flies by and in less then two weeks I have to get back to work and ‘normal’ life. But ‘life as we know it’ is gone and I love it! I adore being a family now.

Sorry for not posting that much lately but will be getting back to my my blog, Lennebelle (new website and online shop coming up) and minishop Confetti (new items in the online shop) soon.


The printed version


Besides the little video we made for Mette’s birth announcement we also made a printed one for close friends and family and people who are not so familiar with the internet! Again it was a lot of fun to find a nice idea for the card and to make them!

Not so many blogpost at the moments because I am enjoying motherhood!

Pretty gift wrapping

gifts2It’s crazy how time flies at the moment. Today Mette is already one month old. She is the cutest, sweetest little baby and I enjoy every moment with her. We had a lot of friends and family coming over and Mette got so spoilt with pretty gifts. She has a wardrobe almost larger than mine and so many books she can fill a library. And the gifts were also so nicely gift wrapped!

Flower mobile for Mette from Niche


Instead of a regular pretty bouquet of flowers Susan from florist Niche Rotterdam made this gorgeous flower mobile for Mette! Isn’t beautiful? The great thing is I can reuse it and fill the small vases over and over again. Check out Niche here and FB page here!
