Creative life 2018

We went “where the Creative things are” at the Creative Life Event.
And we sure got ourselves a big dose of creativity and inspiration!
From the moment we stepped in, until the moment we had to leave we were talking to amazingly talented people and getting so many ideas and tips from everyone.

Sadly our little baby Quinn suddenly got a high fever and was burning up the poor thing! So we just had to leave.
We sure wish we could have stayed much longer to participate in some workshops or attend a seminar… But the baby always goes first.
Hey, that’s #Momlife No worries… next year I will be there for sure to make up for lost time! Already looking forward to Creative Life 2019!

So for everyone who likes to be creative, get inspired and like to meet other creatives… I highly recommend this event! We loved it!

Watch our recap video to see how it was and who we’ve met.

About the Vlog:
Here I collect all our adventures of our family in photo and video stories. With our photography and videography, we try to show how we experience this world and illustrate that feeling of being close and connected to each other as a family. Nothing fancy, just the five of us, living our lives, going on road trips, cuddling on the couch, loving each other, and keeping our baby girls close to us. Honest, sincere, real images. Take a look into our lives and feel free to leave a comment Love, Jolanda

Haley got a bit high after dentist appointment!

Month VLOG Feb 2018 – This month we took Haley our 3-year-old to the dentist and she came home all funny and fuzzy! Kind of sad but funny at the same time. Our camera and car broke, Haley turned three, we went to do lots of fun stuff together, and Holland froze over while we couldn’t manage to keep our home warm.

Check out this month’s adventures of our family and be sure to subscribe to be updated on all new uploaded video’s!

Making art with our kids!

I am really proud of Michiel for making this video and going outside his comfort zone and doing a voiceover for the very first time!
He really wanted to participate with contributing to this blog and start making videos and blog posts. And I am so excited he is actually making a big effort to take part! So here the first of hopefully many blog and video posts from Michiel, to show you guys the dad’s perspective in our lives!

But as usual with firsts, the insecurity kicks in… and I hear him asking me  “Jolanda tell me hounestly, is it good enough!? it’s not isn’t it…”
Well, I definitely think its good enough!!! It’s honest, sincere, from the heart and real. Especially when you know that it’s the first time he had done a voiceover, which made him completely awkward. So I give him extra Bonus points for daring to push beyond his comfort zone and being open and vulnerable. That’s why I love this man.

What do you guys think!? Want to see more of his content on the site and witness him getting more comfortable with sharing his thoughts with you guys!?

Michiel about the video:
Watch our 7-year-old daughter Miley making art!
With this portrait of my daughter Miley I draw I wasn’t sure what to do with the colors, so I drew the lines and hung it on the wall for a good 6 months if not longer. Until Miley came up with the idea of giving it some color herself! I only had to tell her ones and she picked it up so fast. She loved working together with me creating this painting together and the end result could not have been any better.

TED talk

It was 2010 when I watched this Ted talk from Sir Ken Robinson that was recorded in 2006.
And i still remember how moved i was. How i agree with everything he is telling us! He is putting into words what I thought and felt all these years about our education system.

Rewarding and recognizing some skills as valuable and devaluating other skills like creativity. A heartbreaking reality. And I was moved to tears and felt understand and empowered! This is my absolute must-see TED talk of all times! So Please Please Please GO and watch this amazing TED talk and let me know what you think!

Wach this Ted talk!

Music: Postcards From Mars

We are a big fan of this band! We love their dreamy sound and its the perfect soundtrack to a long road trip, or lazy Sunday afternoon in October. We first saw him perform live at the album release back in 2016 and we are following his music ever since.
