Something new and to raise money for a wonderful foundation in Holland: "de regenboogboom" ( the rainbowtree )

A Dreambell is a beautiful costumazible decoration-ball for your nursery or kidsroom. A joy to receive or to give as a present.

This dreamball is especially designed voor charity.
A part of the gain goes to a lovely foundation.
The " Rainbowtree" is a dutch foundation. They take children, suffering from a disease, along to the rainbow-world, by telling stories and singing beautiful songs. The children can forget their pain for a moment, and can "hide" in a beautiful and happy dreamworld.

Please take some time to check this out, and help raising money for this unique and wonderful foundation
( )

Make your own rainbow-world with this special Dreambell, and help realising a rainbow-world for these children at the same time...

In the meantime we have worked on our website as well, and in the future we will open a shop on the site besides our Etsy Store....but first, we will be busy creating all kinds of wonderful items ;-) That on itself is allready an achievement knowing that we are mothers of 3 and 4 kids ;-)

Bibi has got 2 little girls running around, and 1 at school...and i am having 2 at school and 1 little one of 6 you can imagine how it is...the kids are running around the whole day...and so are we ;-)

 Litlle Sneak Peak from Our day?

Cleaning the "danoontje" from the couch and the floor..."No, put the candy back in the allready have eaten half of the bag when i was not looking for a moment " ( remind me that i need to put the candy higher next time ...) "Put that down"... " NOOO !!" .... "ah...he is finally sleeping...""oh...he is awake again, thanks for being quiet when he is sleeping, NOT " "give it back to her" " do not smash the spoon out of my hands..." " great , now the food is against the wall ", and i need to wash too...."OH NO...i need to be at school in 10  minutes " while it is 15 minutes drive...hurry to make dinner and than back to school again for the activities ( after all we are GOOD mothers and we would like to please our little ones ....) and so on ..and so on...this is only a small part of the day we normally have i guess, whahaaa...but hey...WE LOVE IT , and would not want to miss it......They mean the world to us!

So, as you might understand, our most productive hours are in the evening and night .... ( when the kids are not awake ;-))

Euhmm...Why i am telling you idea....i forgot why i started to talk about this...must be because my eyelids are hanging on the floor at this moment, probably from 2 weeks till 3 in the night listing , designing and creating...It amazes me that i still know who i am...hihi...

Anyway...after spending so much work and time on filling our Etsy Store...we hope you come and check our handmade items , and let us know what you think!!

Next time a more organized blog...i promiss ;-)

There allready are a couple of listings with our wonderful fantasy art. Beautifully designed, and looking great on the wall. A true keepsake, birth(day) gift, or just to show the world what a proud mom you are ! Really something special and unique....

Moodboard and more.....

Busy, busy, busy...we are still working on the website!

The header is finished...the categories as we only need to install the webshop and fill it with all our handmade items.

Here you can see the moodboard we made for the website, before we made the header...
And here you can see a previous attempt for a header.

We decided to make it a little less colourful at the end,  because otherwise there would be too much colours with our products showing on the same page...
So if you are curious how the final header is....come and have a look at  JA-factory

When we were discussing the categories we needed we realised how much different things we are going to make...
To give you an idea of the products we are making:

* Wall art by Nanda : everything you can hang on the walls, paintings etc.
* Fairy Art by Bibi : dreamy, fairy like compositions, also with pictures from kids in it, to hang on the wall
* Soft toys
* Soft dolls
* Kids room decoration like cushions, baniers, little flags, dreamies ( very nice with beads etc ) and more
* Jewelry for moms, pregnancy jewelry ( very beautiful! ), and jewels for little girls.
* Cards, birth announcements, wedding cards, communion etc.
* Baby things like bibs, cuddle blankies, tag blankies etc.
* Other things like keyrings etc.

So as you can see we will have a wide range of choice ! And ofcourse everything will be hand made by us, with our own special touch.

Hopefully we can open the website soon !! In the meantime...please forward it...and spread the word !!
