Merry Christmas



Dear readers, a Very Merry Christmas to all of you.. here are just some words to end this year on Bloesem..

It certainly has been a turbulent year for me personally.. having experienced the loss of my dad.. but it also has been a great year to look back to. There are many reasons to be grateful and celebrate Christmas.. my two beautiful sons, who are often unbelievably naughty, too energetic at times and without a doubt the most challenging and rewarding job in the world … kids really do make life worth living.. nothing compares to their cuddles, smiles and funny words..


And celebrating that my husband and I have been together for almost 20 years..

and having my mom and step-dad over in sunny, but very Christmassy, KL..!

Celebrating my two Bloesem blogs and all my on “the-side-craft-projects”…some of which I am sure are unlikely to be any cause of celebration when they are finished.. and while now and again I feel like giving it all a break.. and do something completely different with my life.. I simply love my work or should I say Bloesem too much that the thought of changing course always quickly fades away..

So it must be you … my dear readers, the people I work with and the people I meet online and in person through Bloesem that give me so much energy and passion for this work.. and I would like to thank you for that..

I look forward to being back online in the beginning of January and thank you all for supporting Bloesem during the past year and I hope to see you next year! Hap
py Holidays!
