Our hostess this week is Nellie van Leeuwen who made this delicous and gorgeous gothic arch for our theme “Chocolate”…“Chocolate is a girls best friend”. I totally agree with that quote, I’m fond of chocolate. What does chocolate mean to you? A great treat, a comforting moment, a time to time sin you can’t live without? Or perhaps just a beautiful brown colour to work with? Let us see what your associations with chocolate are.A bit about our hostess…

I live in the Netherlands with Harrie, my mate for over 27 years. For me there are 3 big passions in life. The first by far are our dogs, 3 at the moment, Irish wolfhound Lucca and borderterriers Gonzo and Darcy. A very good second is crafting, mainly stamping and collaging, often combined. I got addicted to stamping 3 years ago after following a couple of workshops. Love to spent hours and hours in my craft room.

The nickname I chose for myself is “Dutch stamptramp” because I wander from one technique or colour to another and constantly like to try new things. All the challenge blogs and people all over the world I got to “meet” through the internet inspire me very much. And now you’re wondering what the third one is, aren’t you? Well that’s travelling. I so much like to visit beautiful places in the world, enjoy nature, culture and meeting people of all sorts. I very much like to use travel as a theme in my artwork too.You may see more of Nellie’s amazing work at her blog:
