About Ellen...

Hi, my name is Ellen.
Living with my friend in a small village called Zweeloo, with historical farms & a little church, drawn by Van Gogh.
We have two cats (Puk & Aagje).
Very recent also a new and very sweet 'secondhand' dog called Beer (Dutch for Bear).
I <3 spring & summer most, being in our garden; seeding & picking flowers, enjoying the atmosphere.

I' m an artist (papier mache, illustration) & I have an a studio/atelier where I <3 to be & work most of the time.
(making cards, etc.)
I make birth announcement cards - which we, in the Netherlands, traditionally use to send to family & friends to let them know our baby is born.
And I have a webshop where I sell paper related stuff, and a lot!!! of postcards! :-D
