I met Revlie Schuit many years ago in the Netherlands when we both visited a workshop and ever since we kind of cross our ways over the internet. Revlie has a wonderful style and she is super supportive -check out what she has for you today.
Hallo hallo hallo! I am Revlie from the Netherlands, and so happy to meet you!
let me introduce myself a bit: Revlie Schuit – 38 years – blond gone red – live with hub Arjan and our 2 muppets: Sanne (9, girl) and Ruben (5, boy) – Netherlands – company owner – stubborn but o so sweet – chocolate – Vichy handcream – imac – colors, lots of! – handmade – running – scrapbook – sew – crochet – paint – mixed media canvasses – art journal – tulips- pinterest – blogging – i don’t do well when i eat carbs – i should go to bed more early than i do now – and i’m clumsy – that about sums it all up …
In the daytime my hub & me run our company for Secretarial Services together. And of course we chase after Sanne & Ruben trying to raise them :).
In the nighttime I work on REVolution. I’m working hard to become a fulltime creative business owner. And for me, with all dreams, i know i can be that fulltime artist. I’m going for it, and everyday i feel more happy about the status i’m at. Remember: you can be anything you want!
I love to create vibrant & colorful mini albums, canvasses or crochet projects. In my Etsy shop you can find lots of fun tutorials for creating these mini albums or patterns for my crochet ideas and lovely mixed media postcards & prints! The tutorials are usually over 40 pages of very step-by-step how to instructions and filled with at least 50 pictures of the complete mini album / crochet project. If you are a beginner or already know your way, both can use the tutorial! I love to work with fabric, felt, embroidery floss, transparencies, scrapbooking supplies and crochet handmade embellishments.
On my blog you can find free tutorials, lots of projects, layouts, mini albums and fun video’s of my progress.
i so love to teach other people that they can TOO be creative. i get this a lot: “yes, YOU can make that, because you are very creative, but i’m not…”. seriously peeps. STOP saying that. i’m NOT more creative than anybody else on this world. i simply nurture my creativity. i feed it. i embrace it. everybody is creative in its own unique way. you just HAVE TO LET GO of the feeling to be perfect (what’s perfect anyway?) and GIVE yourself the beauty of creating. trust me, it’s so worth it. let go of those negative feelings. just start and let the flow of creating brings you places. it really is such a wonderful way of living.
Besides feeling the need to be creative on a daily basis, I’m a choc-aholic, I talk too much and I laugh too loud, I bite my nails when I’m nervous (yes I know…), I’m stubborn if something is in my head, you will not get it out– you can bribe me with wine & chocolate though 😉
For the official part: I’ve designed for different Scrapbooking Manufacturers (as Scenic Route, American Crafts, 24heures37, ColorConspiracy), I wrote articles for Dutch Scrapbooking Magazine, I still write articles for EntreArtistes (a French scrapbooking magazine), I’ve been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Simply Handmade and multiple other magazines. I teach workshops mini-albums and creating mixed media canvasses in my studio at the office and I’m currently working on a 4 week e-course for creating mixed media canvasses. My way.
