Cherry Pie Creations – Workshop in The Netherlands

It was such an amazing and fun Cherry Pie Creations weekend in The Netherlands in Venray. My sweet Liz and I drove 6 hours down and we had a blast. While Liz was taking a total of 9 workshops and showed up once in a while with piles and piles of materials and projects, I taught my classes and enjoyed having students from Israel, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. All the students were amazing and all the groups had a really fun vibe and the outcomes were all different, unique and stunning! Here are the classes I taught. I might teach them again in a small group in Hamburg- but for now they are retired 🙂

Eternal Love

*Tribute Album*

It was also such a fun and good time to hang out with the other teachers. Birgit, Natasja and Vicki are such wonderful personalties- we had a very good time and laughed quite  a lot- LOL – AR!!!!! Manita did a great job organizing the Event and it was fun shopping at Special Memories and Scrapheap

I met so many wonderful students and I can’t all poin them out – Ingeborg was so nice to send me a couple pictures- here is Ingeborg and me staring the the sun- LOL

And here is Viv – who sent me the pic- see – I love how different the outcome is with her layout:

And Ingeborg sent me hers- isn’t that amazing?

I have to say that this is my favorite part of this workshop for me…all the different outcomes and how students get excited about it…and if you were in one of my workshops…you know I get totally excited about it too- LOL

The girls from Special Memories did an amazing job helping and my special thanks go out to Judith and Anja who helped during my classes as well to the other sweethearts that treated me with tea, and Wilhelmina Peppermints 🙂 Love you girls- you are the best! Here is a photo of all of us (also stolen from Vicki Boutin – I hope she is not killing me!)

Here is Manita and us workshop teachers – it cracks me up how we all look in different directions 🙂

and here is the nice picture that I stole from Vici’s Blog 🙂 I love this picture of Natasja, Vicki, Manita, Birgit and me! We are beaming…because it was so awesome!

Hopefully I will see many of you again!

huge hugs


  1. Hi. I’m Anat, Mya friend that was in your class. We met Ingeborg in the middle of mastricht. She came towards us and ask if it us that were in the weekend. I was so exited about the meeting that I forgot to take her e-mail for some chatting. And here you are putting yours photo and I’m looking and say – oh my god – there she is, the same lady that we met in Mastricht accidentally. What a coincidence. I’ll be glad if you can connect us or throw me her e-mail. I’m going to make a post on my blog about beautiful Mastricht.
    Thanks alot.

  4. Hi Nathalie,
    it was so great to see you again! And I did learn a lot in spite of what you think. I got myself a copy of the new Sommerset finaly and it is so great to see your “work” and articles in it!
    You give/gave me new inspiration, and I needed that a lot.
    Busy with all kinds of paints and inks again.
    Hugs !
