Today is the fourth anniversary of my blog, hooray! Wow, four years already. I can’t believe how time flies. So much has happened in those four years! For starters, I’ve published 346 blogs on Marjolein in het klein (and a few more on other websites). I’ve given about 70 lectures. I’ve seen the attention for […]
Youth and the future
‘Youth has the future’. A (Dutch) saying I’ve heard all my life, but now I’m not so sure it’s true. Does our youth have a future left? And if so, what will it look like? We, the adults, are trying really hard to make that future less and less bright, with all our greed, with […]
Tiny House 4 all: building together towards living independently
I already mentioned something earlier, but now I can finally reveal what I’ve been working on for the past few months: making a website for Tiny House 4 all! Today it was launched and I can finally tell you all about this organisation. Tiny Houses are being built in Nieuwegein, both for the residents and […]
I’ve been feeling a little off track lately and I think I know how to get back on track. In order to do that I needed to make a difficult decision which I’ve been putting off. But of course putting it off won’t make anything better ; ) I’m not getting by as a freelancer […]

I don’t want to let myself be guided by negativity. I believe one can achieve so much more with a positive attitude, and it will make you a happier person. But unfortunately, negativity finds its way into my life as well and I have to find a way to deal with it. And it gets […]
New new new!
Woohoo! After weeks and weeks of hard work, finally today my new website is online! Until now I did everything for the website by myself – you can come a long way with WordPress. But it was time to take the website to the next level and I asked David Web & Media to help me […]
A new streetscape in Hardegarijp
On January 2nd, I paid a visit to Mill Home in the beautiful village of Mill, Noord-Brabant. I’ve known Gerard Dijkstra of Mill Home for a while; he’s a super likable man who heartily supports the Tiny House movement and philosophy. Every now and then we call each other to catch up on how both […]
Taking a shower at home. What a blessing!
I was finally able to take a shower at home this morning! After having washed myself ‘old school’ for weeks, with a tub of hot water and the occasional shower at friends or family. Let me tell you, I become so happy with all these things that most people take for granted! Big happiness being […]
