Is this really happening or am I dreaming?

Live your dream’ was actually my very first blog post. I started this blog just for myself, to remind me of my dream… So I’ve got good news and exciting news for you.

Let’s start with the good news; the jury of ‘handmade in Brugge’ has selected 20 of the finest craftsmen of Bruges and YES I’m one of them! I received the ‘handmade in Brugge’ label together with 19 other fine craftsmen of Bruges yesterday evening. This is actually my very first recognition for my work and I’m very proud about it!

But that’s not all …

I've also got exciting news; a while ago I applied for Made London, a high standard design and craft fair in the heart of London. And YES I’m selected! I can’t believe it! Is this really happening? It was my first application abroad and I’m selected out of 500 craftsman from all over the world. I don’t quite realise it but next fall I may present my work in London! Sometimes dreams come true. I’m over the moon!!


  1. Een dikke dubbele proficiat!!!!!
    Erkenning van je werk is een super stimulans om in jezelf te blijven geloven.
    Ik zal met trots mijn handtas 'handmade by Dominque' dragen!

    1. Dat doet me echt plezier, Marleen. Ik vind het nog steeds ongelofelijk dat ik geselecteerd ben om in hartje Londen mijn collectie te mogen tonen tussen vele andere 'craftsmen' uit de UK en de rest van de wereld.

  2. Gefeliciteerd Dominique ! Na Bonn nu London ... Straks NY ?!
