Hi, I’m Henriëtte van Mierlo and I live in Netherlands. I work four days a week in financial administration and in my spare time I love to craft. Card making is my favourite, especially CAS cards using all kinds of card making techniques. I have developed an interest in shabby chic cards, planner decorating and mixed media lately. Other than this, I also love working with polymer clay or felt, watercoloring, making nylon/paper/fabric flowers and wire bending. Looking forward love to share my creation with my fellow crafters!!
How time flies!! Half of 2017 is already over and we have enjoyed it thoroughly till now watching, learning and soaking up ideas that our DT members shared every week all these months. It’s been exciting, memorable & and fun to see all the unique and innovative creations and the various techniques that they shared. Thanks to all our lovely DT members Angela Jose, Juhi Khanna, Suchismita Chatterjee Dutta, Roshini, Suman Pandit, Sharada Dilip Acharya.
