Yay it’s Friday! One last day before the weekend, we can do this! Tomorrow my husband and I have a Bladergoudday, where we think about where I am with Bladergoud right now and where I want to be. (Yes my awesome husband helps me with this stuff, since he knows way more about being an entrepreneur than I do.) Do you evaluate your business or job from time to time and if so, do you have any tips for me? ✨ . . . . . . #illustratie #illustration #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #girlboss #feest #weekend #kaartje #echtepostiszoveelleuker #kaartjesturen #wijsheden

One of the prettiest wedding locations in the Netherlands is (in my opinion) De Kleine Melm. A lovely vintagestyled barn, next to a river in the midst of meadows. I’ve attended a lot of fun weddings here (it’s located in Soest, where I grew up) and I’ve also had some couples that ask me to illustrate an icon of the Kleine Melm for their wedding invite. This one is from a huge map I made of the two lives of the groom and bride, coming together at De Kleine Melm. What’s the most fun place you’ve ever attended a wedding (or maybe it’s your own weddingvenue?) 👰🤵 . . . . . . . #weddingstationery #trouwen #bruiloft #verloofd #wijgaantrouwen #bruiloftinspiratie #trouwplannen #huwelijk #wijzijnverloofd #isaidyes #trouwkaart #trouwkaarten #savethedate #persoonlijkontwerp #trouwstationery #engaged #illustratie #illustration #locatie #trouwlocatie #bruid #bruidegom #dekleinemelm #kleinemelm #soest at De Kleine Melm

Lets start this gloomy Monday with a very sunny birth announcement! I love this card which tells a little story about their apartment in their favorite city, but this family of three also love to go on outdoor adventures. Welcome to the world little Maud! ✨ . . . . . #geboortekaartje #kindjeopkomst #zwanger #persoonlijkgeboortekaartje #illustratie #illustration #huisje #meisje #kinderkamer #birthannouncement #babygirl #geboortekaart

Hi there! I have some new followers (almost 2000 peeps, I feel a give away coming up!) and I thought it would be nice to introduce myself. 🙋 I'm Joëlle, illustrator and designer. I'm 24 years old and I have been married for almost two years to a wonderful 25 year old fella. We live in an apartment in Amersfoort, together with our hamster Tjeempie. We are surrounded by trees there and that makes me the happiest. The forest is my go to place for some headspace and inspiration. You'll probably find some elements of nature in every aspect of my work! Some other random things: I am crazy about animals, I'm a vegetarian 99% of the time, I stopped wearing make-up a month and a half ago and I love it, I cry a lot (when I'm happy, sad, angry, hungry), I am an auntie of 5 nephews and 2 nieces, I am a Christian, I have a lot of nicknames: Bella, Bettie, Mini, Petit, Joekel, Juice, Els, Biem (my youngest nephew invented that one) and so on. My family and friends rarely call me by my real name and when they do it's super weird. I don't like to draw outside my work (does that make me a weird creative?). My favorite snack right now is a plate filled with sweet potatoe fries. 🍟 Thank you all for following my creative adventures and for being here! I would love to know some random facts about you; what is your favorite snack? Do you have any weird nicknames? 📸 : @marisaelisa . . . . . #meetthemaker #illustration #illustrator #womenwithpencils #artistsofinstagram

Sprinkles bring happiness to the world, therefore I made it into a verb. Let's sprinkle today!

Sometimes I get the opportunity to make something completely different. My illustration career started in Adobe Illustrator, so to get back into the real clean graphic stuff feels nice every once in a while. This is an invitation for a company event from my husband's work. They went on a roadtrip with vintage cars and wanted a treasure map. I stayed close to their branding plus I put some sheep somewhere (can you spot them?)🐑 . . . . . #huisstijl #grafisch #grafischontwerp #zakelijkeuiting #branding #merk #uitnodiging

Making some fresh lemon iced tea for myself. How I love to paint lemons. Is there anyone who's pregnant right now and wants to have a birth announcement with lemons? (Or maybe someone who wants to name their girl Lemon. Any fellow Hart of Dixie lovers over here?)Then I'm your girl! 🍋 . . . . . #illustration #illustratie #lemon #citroen #zomer #printje #zomers #geboortekaartje #zwanger #meisje

There’s a serious babyboom going on! A while ago, little Otis was born. This card is completely different from my other work, but that’s why I love it so much. Minimalistic, beautiful paper, a bit moody. It matches the brave name Otis perfectly. 🌚 . . . . . . #geboortekaartje #kindjeopkomst #zwanger #persoonlijkgeboortekaartje #illustratie #illustration #maan #moon #moody #babyboy #jongetje #jongen #stoer #birthannouncement #watercolour #pencil #postzegel

This is my outfit of this week haha! I have a new love in my life: midi skirts. I feel like I'm in the Sound of Music when I'm wearing them, so flowy. This one is from a second hand shop in Göteborg. Seriously, the second hand shops in Scandinavia are heaven and there are so many of them. Colour oriented and filled with lots of cool stuff. We Dutch people can learn something from that. This drawing is the first drawing I made for myself since a very long time and it felt so so good to be inspired again! A good start of August 💛 .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #outfitoftheday #illustratie #illustrator #illustration #handmade #womenwithpencils #tekening #potlood #zomer #summer #zomeroutfit #createeveryday #creativityfound #creativehappylife

A little bit of a holiday feeling for me in this birth announcement. I showed you a sneakpeek right before my holiday and now I can show you the whole thing. This little Belgian girl was born a few weeks ago and this card is filled with personal details, like their tent, their love for the Scandinavian mountains (which I absolutely understand now) and their dream of taking their little girl with them on these adventures on their bike. Welcome to the world Noor! 🏔 . . . . . . #geboortekaartje #zwanger #kindjeopkomst #geboortekaartje #persoonlijkgeboortekaartje #illustratie #illustration #baby #kindje #kamperen #zomer #vakantie #avontuur #adventurous #camping #birthannouncement #pregnant

Pfff can’t wait for the rain tomorrow! My focus is totally gone, how are you handling this Friday? I’m not posting a lot because I’m pretty busy and I don’t have time to make any nice illustrations for Instagram so please be patient with me sweet peeps! 🌧 . . . . . #heatwave #hittegolf #illustrate #regen #illustratie #illustration #rain

A wedding invite doesn’t get more personal than this. Tiny portraits and personal icons on the back, I loved making this summer invitation! ✨ . . . . . . #uitnodiging #persoonlijketrouwkaart #illustratie #illustration #handlettering #weddingstationery #trouwen #bruiloft #verloofd #wijgaantrouwen #bruiloftinspiratie #trouwplannen #huwelijk #wijzijnverloofd #trouwkaart #trouwkaarten #persoonlijkontwerp #zomerbruiloft #portretje

When you go to Scandinavia, you can’t leave without a real Scandinavian design souvenir. I don’t like the typical ‘designy’ interior stuff, so we couldn’t really find anything that suited us. Until we saw this candle from @skandinavisk. The smell is unlike any candle I’ve ever smelled before, it’s like they put a whole forest inside this beautiful designed glass with a beechwood lid. Buuuut who’s going to spend that amount on a candle? So we let it go and went on with our search. We kept bumping into these candles and on the last day we decided to just buy it. I’m not going to light it, just sniff it every once in a while. If that makes me super super weird, I’m fine with that. You would do that too if you’ve smelled this candle! What’s your favorite souvenir? 🌲 . . . . . . #skandinavisk #skog #design #scandinaviandesign #illustratie #illustration #souvenir #vakantie #scandinavie

Woohoo, we’re back after an amazing two weeks spend in nature (accompanied by a lot of Scandinavian cakes and treats. Those people live on sweets!) It was really good and necessary to reload the battery. Today I’m slowly gonna crawl through my mailbox and enjoy a mini summer holiday during my lunch break in the sun. 💛 Picture by @leonnephotography

Packing all of our stuff for a roadtrip through Sweden and Norway (and a bit of Denmark). I've never realised how much stuff you need for camping (my parents always had a caravan, so that was kinda glamping haha). You have no idea how long I have been looking forward to this holiday. Just two weeks filled with nature, books, trying to figure out our new tent, listening to endless podcasts in the car. I won't post anything, since I need a little digital detox. So I'll see you soon(s) baboons! P.s. this is another sneakpeek of a birthannouncement. Sorry for all the teasing and sneakpeeks, I will post everything when I get back! 🏔 . . . . . . #geboortekaartje #zwanger #kindjeopkomst #geboortekaartje #persoonlijkgeboortekaartje #illustratie #illustration #baby #kindje #kamperen #zomer #vakantie #avontuur #adventurous #camping #birthannouncement #pregnant
