So, what to tell about me and this website?
I’m Esmee, 31 years old and from the Netherlands. I started this blog and website in the summer of 2012. I’ve named this website AnnaGee after my sister Anna, who passed away in 2011. She loved beautiful things and was able to create beautiful things herself as well. At first it was a blog about art, fashion and design, the things I love. After a little while I discovered that this wasn’t the path for me. So the blog and the website weren’t very much alive anymore. Safe to say, I had lost my drive for blogging.
The last couple of years I’ve been working as a project leader in education. Totally different but I liked it for as long as it lasted. Biggest change came when I became a mother of a little girl in December 2015. Suddenly, AnnaGee started to get my attention again, during my maternity leave. What if I could develop a textile brand for the little ones?
We didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl, and it was quite hard to find unisex clothing / bedding etc. Surely I’m not the only one looking for nice, graphic designs on blankets, sheets and duvet covers for my baby? So, why not developing it myself? And that’s what I’m doing right now, searching for the best organic cotton, the cutest prints and the best way to produce it, fair, honest and ecological.
And actually, this is the best way to honor my sister’s name. She loved children and would have loved to meet her little niece. To create and develop baby blankets with her name on, is just right. Come join me on this new journey, and let’s see where it will end! Follow me on Facebook, instagram (@anna_gee_creative) or twitter (@AnnaGeeMag).
