Our Creative Space...


Today it caught my attention that we have always weird tools and materials hanging around in our workspace. A glue gun, clothes-pins, sand, a sieve and a funnel are just a few examples.


Also some toothbrushes to clean delicate surfaces.

Button Wednesday


This came today in the mail! It is the result of a trade with the  lovely Etsy seller, EyeSigh, and if you love buttons and sewing notions like I do, you will agree that it can get any cuter than this!


This little sewing bag has a whole dutch peasant family pictured with paint and thread and all the little faces are made with painted  buttons!


And it came full to the brim with embroidery floss! It is something to cherish for ever, thank you Regina! Please check her vintage shop EyeSigh, Regina also has a photography shop, blueskyclouds.



I've never been in the States, but I'm sure that if I ever go I will spend more time in garage sales and auction houses than visiting the touristic highlights, oh bliss...

Those who have known me for a while will know that I love rain. The main reason is that we live in a place where summers start in april and end in october sometimes even november,  long long hot summer makes yo miss rain!
We had our first rain after months! So a happy rain dance from me :)

Wishing you all a great week ahead!

This week I'm a bit better but mum is in bed with fever, guess we share our Flu's too...
I've been playing around with new material combinations, and am pretty pleased how these turned out, or better said, will turn out as they are not finished.


Before mum was caught with the Flu she started some urchin flowers wich I will finish, I really like the combination of fabric with the sea urchins.

Monday Moodboard- Searching for Good Karma


I know a fairygirl, her name is Frances. She lives with Snow white, Pinocchio, the Frog Prince, Thumbelina and many more...
She captures her friends with her camera and shares it with the world...
She has been having a dream for 10 years, and now it came to her. But as money is not the main importance in Fairyland she has a problem. She needs money to go from New Zealand to Italy where her dream will come true. Another problem is that time is limited and that in a few days the door to her dream will close and won't open again.
There for she is having a BOGO sale, when you purchase a photograph you will recieve one of the same value for free. Each sale will help her for her dream to come true, so I really hope that you are a Karma believer and help her. She has the cutest ACEO's you can imagine (I can tell for sure as I have a few).
Both her shops, MatchStickGirl and EnchantedPond are having this sale, make use of it, I'm sure you'll get some great Karma back from this sweet fairygirl!

Our Creative Space...


This week we have been busy with prepairing a wholesale order for a shop in Istanbul. The bigger the project the bigger mess we make in our workspace. This week was extraordinairy and I'm not showing you everything here :)


Among the order we also had some projects going on, like always, creativity is always bursting at our place.


The shop owner asked us if we could send some sea themed decorative stuff, like starfishes, along with the order to display the jewelry. That made me thinking and I looked through our big driftwood pieces to see if I could make some real displays.


With some matching and glueing I made this tree to hang earrings and necklaces on, I love it!

We also had some big starfishes which will be nice too. And I drilled out a big piece of driftwood to hold rings. I love the result as it is playful and natural, perfect to make our pieces stronger.



And an other interesting shaped driftwood to hang necklaces, I didn't change anything of it's natural shape except I carved spaces so that the necklaces won't slide off.


The shop owner will send us pictures of the result in the shop, hope to share that with you too, among with the address in case you might visit Istanbul :)

You all gave such good vibes last week, that mum didn't only finish that bag, but made a second one too!



Both bags only need some finishing touches before we can show the end results, but the main thing of these are the embroidery with felt. I love how this one turned out with white and pale pink, very romantic!
