Tour The Bloesem Creative Space

I have to write a post about a blog colleague, a lovely lady, known as Bloesem but for those of you who really know her, she is Irene Hoofs and is simply a doll through and through. She worked with me on a previous Blogging Your Way e-course and did a bang up job, too. She’s just one of those people that is kind, gentle and is a genuine champion of others and their work. She’s always been so supportive of me and so in return I thought I’d shout her out and share a glimpse into her most recent project – the Bloesem Creative Space in lovely Singapore – part shop, teaching studio and workspace. Love!

Irene is Dutch but lives far away from her home city, Amsterdam, in a beautiful part of the world with her husband and two small boys. To take on a studio space with children, a blog and the other projects she works on (like her online store) is a real undertaking to say the least but she seems quite confident and content so far and I’m so proud that she just opened her doors. (And Irene, you look just wonderful in these photos!)

Above is a glimpse but you’ll need to visit her blog to see more photos and to learn more about this space and her intentions for it.

Irene – my heartfelt congrats to you and your business, your creative space is wonderful and I wish you all the luck in the world! xo – Holly

    Oh, I’m so excited that you’re sharing this with us Holly. I love Bloesem, Irene, her Instagram feed and only wished I lived in Singapore to be able to take part in her classes. She’s a real inspiration! XO

    Irene was such an inspiration at the last Blogging your way – e-course! I´m happy to see, that she has managed her movement to Singapure in such a “Bloesem” way…
