You get inspiration from what you read, see or hear. Or it often comes to you when you are in the bath, or riding your bicycle … these are mostly things that you have read, heard or seen earlier. And then they suddenly acquire a meaning, or you see a link. I regularly write an article (blog) about all sorts of issue to do with organizing in general, photo organizing and time management. If you subscribe to my newsletter (it’s in Dutch though..), you will get these blogs together with some practical and easily applicable tips. You can read some that I published earlier under Tips (in English).

My website is not called ‘Van een andere orde’ or ‘Of a different kind’ for nothing. All kinds of things that I like or that inspire me – because they have something to do with organizing – I describe on that website. Have a look – it’s in Dutch though, but maybe the photos can inspire you :).

I am committed to the recycling of things. I want to give them a new life, or ensure that the constituents are recycled as raw materials. I am also a fan of upcycling – the making of a new product from used material; for example, a bag from the material from a broken umbrella, or a cake stand from old plates. I enjoy doing this. The covers of my books and other products are made from old archive folders that I get from Erfgoed Leiden (Leiden Cultural Heritage). I am pleased to provide some inspiration and tips see Recycling en Upcycling.

Inspiration. The word 'Look' painted on the ground.
