Hello, my name is Eline Janse.
I'm Dutch and born in 1958.
I've made my first steps on the field of handcrafts when I was 25 years old.
Years I searched for a suitable hobby. It was much more difficult than I expected.
I've tried many different types of handcrafs before I realised variation was the thing I was looking for.
Just for fun I started making a little winterhouse, because I love wintertime and the
atmosphere of Christmas.
After a few months this house wasn't as lovely anymore as when I made it.
At that time my husband suggested to change it into a summerhouse.
So I did and to my surprise I realised this was the hobby I was looking for all these years.
The versatility of working with many different materials gave me much satisfaction.
I also liked the search to gets things in the right dimension and to synchronize them.
In 1993 I saw a magazine about miniatures and dollhouses.
This speeded things up, because dollhouses and all things around these houses could satisfy my needs.
So I specialized myself in making dollhouse rooms and boxes.
I enjoy making a boutique and the next time a garage.
Always I try to make as much as I can by my own hands and the years of searching and trying
different hobbies proved to be very handy.
Throughout the years my speciality is making little furniture 1:12 in replica.
When I see a nice piece of furniture in a antiek shop, I make a worktemplate and start working.
Every time it's a chalange to make an exact copy of the real furniture.
This hobby resultated in publiching in magasines and exhibitor on Dollhouse exchange
Who could think that years ago.
