Tell your lover that you love them with a Love iPhone Case! By the way I think this image would look great in acrylic too! Click on love iPhone cases or view more of my work on Ingrid van Amsterdam CREATIVE. Would love to see you there!


I am currently working on my Major Project for Collaborative Studies toward my Diploma in Creative Technologies at WITT Taranaki, and am now in the process of selecting a group of people who are willing to participate in this project.

The theme for this project is the selfie, a trend which has really taken off in the last twelve months or so, and more or less is a real glorification and exposing of the self.

If you love your selfie you are the perfect candidate for my project and I would love you to become part of my collaboration!

By submitting your photograph, you will give me full permission to use your image to become part of a larger, final work if selected. This final work will be presented to my student colleagues and tutor, and eventually will be published on my art blog Ingrid van Amsterdam and my Facebook art page Ingrid van Amsterdam Art, Photography, and Film

Once I have received all submissions, due 31 October 2014, I will decide how these images will be processed in the work.

Please note that your photograph will not be used for any other purposes than this project, and that you may, or may not be identifiable in the final work. For example all, or only part of your photograph may be used as part of a larger image, or even as part of a 3D installation (image example supplied with full permission, as below).

Other than giving credit to your name under the final work, I would like to reassure you that your personal details will not be disclosed to the public and will remain confidential. If you prefer to remain anonymous or would like me to use your first name or initials only, please let me know so I can respect your wishes when I write my credits.

The final work will be under full copyright © Ingrid van Amsterdam.



* Take a photograph of yourself kissing (your own reflection in) a mirror

* Any digital medium may be used, and sent to me in preferably the highest/maximum quality/size possible

* The image must show your reflection in the mirror as well as (part or all of) your actual face

* Then send this photograph/selfie to my email address:

* Last day for submissions will be 31 October 2014


Your participation is much appreciated, thank you!

Yes more crochet! If I carry on like this I may need to create another blog to support my “other interests” as they are now included in a page on this one!

I made this baby blanket for my daughter Starlet who is expecting a baby, due in April ♡, my very first grandchild to be!

After making my crochet shoulder bags, I really got into the “crochet mode”, and not really being the “knitting nana type”(!!!) ~ besides, this little one already has a nana and great grandmother knitting! ~ I still wanted to do something special for this newcomer in the big wide world, and ~ having had six babies of my own, I know how fast babies grow out of their tiny little baby clothes!

Hence, the blanket! This will be multipurpose of course, and will fit into a bassinet (folded) and a cot, and can serve as a colourful play mat or or even a wall hanging just as a decoration in the nursery, or to pin little messages, pictures, nappy pins, or other decorations onto!

No doubt this blanket will be made to good use, and in any case, I have really enjoyed crocheting every stitch of it! ♡

My new, sassy crochet shoulder bags, now available at the Mermaid Gallery in Breakwater Bay, New Plymouth!

I love the feel, the colours, and the different textures of these new bags, made with LOVE, not too big, not too small, and just the right size for holding your wallet and personal items, and, as someone mentioned, the PERFECT size to hold a box of Oracle Cards! ♡

The amazing thing, may I add, was the meditative state it got me into, while creating them! Clearing my head (as well as work and living areas!) giving me so much inspiration for future projects, and generally, a feeling of wellbeing. I love my life! ♡

Some of these bags were sold just recently at Mermaid Gallery in New Plymouth, Taranaki, thank you! They made great Christmas gifts! Working on creating some new ones with a new look, new colours, and hopefully ready within the next few weeks!

Beautiful accessories to complete your individual look, hand made with love ♡
