Creativity is an important and determining factor in my life. I use it every da. It’s my livelihood and gives me life. Not just n jewelry design, but also in everyday life, problem solving, and that many other things. As a mother, I’m also very interested in childhood creativity.

Do you remember when I wrote about the mimi / events with love calligraphy workshop a few months ago? That’s exactly where and when I fell in love with this writing method. Since then, I write incessantly with dip pens and my girls are following my example. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a new workshop on mimi’s page: brush calligraphy. I knew I would love it, and immediately wrote to Mimi about availability. I was in luck!
