Welcome to my Etsy store 'Elke dag zaterdag', which is the Dutch name of my store. It can be translated to 'Every day Saturday'. I chose this name mainly because Saturday is my favourite day of the week and I try to turn every day of the week a bit into Saterday.

The origin of the memory notebooks:
I grew up in the 70s, in a lovely, cosy small town in the middle of the Netherlands. Aside of skipping ropes, hut building and roller skating, I had another great passion, which was playing the game 'Memory'. Me and my friends could enjoy this simple card game for hours on end. Even back then I found the images on the cards enchanting and I could dream the day away.

Welcome to my Etsy store 'Elke dag zaterdag', which is the Dutch name of my store. It can be translated to 'Every day Saturday'. I chose this name mainly because Saturday is my favourite day of the week and I try to turn every day of the week a bit into Saterday.

The origin of the memory notebooks:
I grew up in the 70s, in a lovely, cosy small town in the middle of the Netherlands. Aside of skipping ropes, hut building and roller skating, I had another great passion, which was playing the game 'Memory'. Me and my friends could enjoy this simple card game for hours on end. Even back then I found the images on the cards enchanting and I could dream the day away. As days turned to years, I all but forgot about the passion I had for the 'Memory' cards back in my childhood.

That was until I started to come across old 'Memory' sets and cards from the 70s in various thrift stores and flea markets. I could not just let them lie there, so I started collecting them. Mainly because I want to give the cards from the 'Memory' games a new life, I started making the memory notebooks. They are booklets made of felt, including a retro 'Memory' card, intended to be used as little notebooks to write down all the beautiful, awe-inspiring and emotionally moving moments in your life that you don’t ever want to forget.

My products are made in my attic workshop in the south of the Netherlands, where I live with my family. Each item you’ll find in the Every day Saturday Etsy shop is one-of-a-kind and handcrafted in the Netherlands with much love and care, and are made from new as well as recycled materials. As such, I sincerely hope they will make you smile.

I write about the things I like to do, create and finally present on my blog. Because I am Dutch myself, my blog is in Dutch as well, but luckily there is a translation button on the blog which you can find and click easily to translate it into your own language

If you have any questions concerning my items and/or my store, don’t hesitate to contact me at elkedagzaterdag [!at] hotmail.com

Furthermore, consider yourself welcome to pay a visit. I would love to meet you on my weblog: http://elkedagzaterdag.blogspot.com.

Have a nice day and try to turn a bit of your day into Saturday.
