Marc en ik hebben het samen ontworpen. Marc heeft het gemaakt.
Hij heeft het volledig gebouwd van hergebruikte materialen. Alleen de verf hebben we nieuw gekocht.
We hopen met dit Gratis Biebje de buurt gezelliger te maken en onze liefde voor boeken te delen.

Onze wensen voor 2021 / Our wishes for 2021 (kaart met omlijsting van kleurrijke restjes garen) (card with border of colorful yarn scraps)



That we will be able to breathe relieved
again soon, without a mouth mask

and we no longer have to move in
circles around each other,

that we can work together again,
can live together, enjoy,

that you can see our smile again
and feel our arm around your shoulders.

Have a fantastic new year!
