Oh Marie! Magazine is back again! Marlous and I launched the new website this Sunday, in the company of our little tribe of bloggers, photographers, illustrators and other creatives. We had a lot of fun at the launch party and I loved meeting and talking to a lot of online friends. Applause for the tribal outfits, I saw some awesome combinations! I think we can all agree Vera Bertens 'indian cats' sweater ruled the place!
I never expected to recieve gifts, but my table is filled up with presents, sweet cards and a LOT of Tony's chocolate bars now. And I must say, you guys know the art of giftwrapping! So much pretty packages, it felt like my birthday :)
Speaking of birthdays.. Nikki&Lisa rocked the cakes table with their heavenly creations! I took home 3 plates filled with leftovers, so I am probably have to take a detox month in April (remember that pile of chocolate..) Sugarrrr overload! ;) It was a lot of work to finish everything for this deadline but we nailed it! Marlous and Casper took care of the website, while I worked on the launch party. I never take the easy way, so I wrapped up 50 tiny cactusses (autsj), made stamps to customize the napkins&menucards, collected caketoppers, plates and glasses, created macramé planthangers&wall hangings and made flavoured water/lemonade (in my brand new taps that kept on leaking). Marlous and I transformed the little greenhouse at DRUK into a desert like tribal heaven in under 2 hours. And it looked great!
I am so proud of everything we did already and I can't wait to do so much more for Oh Marie! Marlous wrote something on the website that explains how I feel about it too: Oh Marie! is like coming home. A home where creative people can find each other, where you are not weird or and exception, but part of a family. And I couldn't be happier with my new place in this amazing family! *add a thousands smiles here*
PS: Anki already wrote a blogpost on Zilverblauw about the launch, with some pretty pictures you want to see! :)
