Zeven jaar geleden heb ik voor mijn moeder voor haar 75ste verjaardag een soort van calender gemaakt met oude familie foto's. 1928 is haar geboorte jaar. Helaas gebruikte ik toen nog heel vaak fotolijm en is daardoor in de loop van de jaren heel veel werk weer los komen te zitten. Afgelopen week heb ik getracht alles weer in oude glorie te herstellen en kon mama haar kalender weet te pronk zetten op haar dressoir. Voor mij nooit meer fotolijm, hoe fijn het ook werkt!!/ Seven years ago I made this calender for my mothers 75th birthday. As I alway's used photoglue those day's, all the glued items fell off. Last week I did alot of restoration work so my mother could show everybody her calender again!
|The couple on the right are my grand-grand father and mother.|
|This lovely couple are my father and mother. This is their weddingphoto, they got married on the 9th of April.|
My mother was 18 and my father 22. My son is 22 now, so that's something to think about when looking at this picture!!
|This young lady is my grandmother. She was French, and my grandfather got to know her on coming back from a worldtour. After working for a while in France he went back to Holland again, but my grandmother followed him to start a new life in Holland.|
|This is my grandfather while he was on his worldtrip. I made this page because he collected postagestamps all his life I made a postage stamp with a picture of my mother in it. His birthday was the 28th of July.|
|Close up of this handsome man and the postage stamp. If you look closely you can see that the cancelationstamp has my name on it. It's all in the details....|
|Also my grandfather as he listed for the Canadian army on his world tour.|
|My father. His birthday was the 29th of May. He used to make woodenclogs as a proffession and he loved to sing. Hence the music and the clogs. His name was Gerrit Jan.|
Hoop dat jullie het leuk vonden iets van mijn ouder werk te zien en iets over mijn familie te lezen./ Hope you liked seeing some of my older work and reading a bit about my family.
