A couple of weeks ago I attended the KreaDoe: one of the largest craft fairs in The Netherlands. It was a special edition, because they were celebrating their 25th anniversary! For five days, you could enjoy a large array of vendors.
I went with my mom and my aunt, and I brought my camera with me. Here’s what the day looked like through my viewfinder.
The entrance, very festive!
And this is what it was like the entire time we were there. It. Was. So. Crowded! The pathways between the booths very fairly large, thank goodness, otherwise it would have been impossible to get around.
Some Fimo and mosaic creations.
Lots, and lots, and lots of beads! That last picture is funny; those are the bowls that my mom, my aunt and I picked out. My mom likes turquoise colours, my aunt loves purples, and I’m very into natural shades at the moment. Guess who’s bowl belongs to whom! ;)
There were some Christmas booths, although not as much as I had thought there would be. The ones that were there however, all had very original products!
Can you believe these gorgeous paintings are all done by a women who finger paints? I couldn’t believe my eyes, until I spotted her actually painting! Incredible work, and very inspiring.
Some flowers, forest items and wood work…
There were A LOT of places to get ribbons! Those stars/flowers area actually ribbons, made stiff with starch. They look so festive, don’t you think? :)
Of course there was plenty of yarny goods to gawk at, like the familiar Knitten I also spotted at the previous craft fair I attended!
And plenty of yarn. My mom and aunt got a few skeins, I only got one! Can you believe it?
We had a lot of fun at the KreaDoe! It was very busy, but it was worth it. I got a lot of inspiration out of the day, and I always love seeing other people’s creativity :) I got some cool loot too, but I’ll save that for another blog post.
