Hi, my name is Desiree Oude Groothuis, I am a 57 year young dutch entrepreneur. Most of you already know me through social media like Facebook and Instagram as @cherishedbydees.

After a successful career of almost 20 years in Children’s entertainment, where I still run my own business Alles Kids, I want to pioneer one last time: I want to bring together my other life’s passions, hobbies and my creative knowhow of it, and share it with others.

I love to bring people together and share mutual passions. Interactivity, meeting, learning and connecting. It all comes together in Cafe-Analog.

Cafe-Analog is an online Stationery Cafe, a virtual community combined with a webshop: the place to find the best Japanse / Asian Stationery, the hottest pens, the latest stamp eye candy, handmade paper and unique washitapes.

My ambition is to eventually create a physical place, a ‘StationeryCafe’: a public space where journalers, snailmailers, letterwriters, postcrossers, stationerylovers and other creative souls can meet over a cup of good coffee or tea. And share their ideas and passions. Where we provide you with stationery and products to try out before you buy!
