Surprise mail


   Arriving at my studio today, a little package was waiting in my mailbox (how
   I love that excitement of a little surprise waiting for me)... Inside was the most
   adorable little sailor made by the lovely (and talented) Olesya. Thank you sooo
   much for your lovely gift, I love it!!! (Now imagine me with a huge smile on
   my face... :-D)

   Pssst... Olesya (with a friend) also owns a lovely Etsy shop with cute kids stuff:
   The Kokokoshop



   Inspired by Lotta Jansdotter I printed my own fabric today using hand carved stamps.
   I made the stamps out of erasers using an utility knife. The idea is to use this printed
   cloth to upholster a vintage chair.



   Spoonful Magazine asked me to contribute to their next edition with an illustration
   of a hummingbird. Did you know that these little fellas are the only birds who can
   fly backwards?


   I'm persistently pretending spring is comming (and ignoring it's actually autumn
   who's at my doorstep). Yesterday was the crown on my spring mission when I
   found a beautiful painted stool on the curve left for trash. I just had to adopt it...
   This season mix-up game might have to do with this book I just bought, that
   became my absolute garden bible within seconds!

   And the winner of the 15% discount coupon for the new china in my Etsy shop
   is: Liefgeval, congrats! Please email me so I can send you the couponcode :)



   Normally I'm not very big on complaining and being negative on the blog (as I do
   believe in possitivity) but my week has been not so good... a funeral, a difficult
   thing to say, and feeling a bit... ugh. Fortunately my doodle made me laugh :)

   One day left to comment on this post and the chance to win a 15% coupon for
   the Etsy shop!

Tshirts and onesies in the shop!

    Well, the blogpost titel says it all... the kids Tshirts and onesies are available in my
    Etsy shop! They are hand screen printed with non toxic, environment friendly inks
    and made of organic cotton. They all have a handmade label inside.

   Don't forget to comment on the previous post about your favorite porcelain piece
   and you might win a 15% discount coupon!

It's on!!!


   The new china is available in my Etsy shop! This little olive oil jug is my favorite...
   Let me know which one is your fave (leave a comment with a link) and I'll randomly
   pick one winner who'll get a 15% discount code for any item of the new china series!

   By the way... the lovely Ana Pina did and interview with me on her blog!

Almost there...


  I'm almost there... spend the whole day taking photo's of the new porcelain china
  series... It'll be in the Etsy shop tomorrow, here a little sneak of two tea bag holders
  and a little jug...

Etsy Open 03


   Yesterday I made a few props to use for the Etsy Open opening party. The idea
   is for people to pose with these quirky accesories while their picture is taken.

   There's also a whole new batch of Instant Comfort Pocket Boxes online in 
   my Etsy shop, here!

   Spend another fun day at the Etsy Open pop up shop in Leiden today. Almost
   all the stock had arrived and it looks so pretty together! I can only say: go and
   have a look! Tomorrow is the official opening starting at 9 in the evening.
   There'll be music, drinks and... a 'photo boot' with props (some made by me!)...
   more about that tomorrow!


   This is my new hobby... making cacti out of crochet :)

Etsy Open


   Upcomming wednesday, the Etsy Open (pop up) shop in Leiden will open it's
   doors! Apart from my goodies they'll sell all sorts of nice handmade things from
   dutch Etsy sellers.  Me an Amy went there today to illustrate the window display.
   I'm quite pleased with the result but it was quite hard to make proper photo's as
   the sun was a bit bright... I did my best though and promiss to post more pics
   later when the shop is in business (I'll be there, whole day, this thursday).
   There also more pictures on Amy's blog.

   I also want to pay a big THANKS to Amy for helping me out these past 4 weeks.
   Amy, you were a wonderful intern and I'm very sure you'll have a bright
   illustration-future ahead of you!

    Amy made me this little hero of clay, isn't he cute?
