Just before I left for London I saw a post on Donna Wilson's instagram that she would have an open studio the same weekend I was in London! So when I arrived in London on saturday I put my luggage in the hotel and went straight to her Studio and see her lovely work in person and even better I got the chance of meeting her and have a nice chat, such a warm and creative lady she is! I left the studio with some cute plates, stamps, teatowel and knitting book for a friend and these fresh and colourful pictures.
If you are visiting Amsterdam this shop called All the Luck in the world and this street should be on your to do list. A shop full of pretty things, vintage finds, handmade originals and beautiful work by the owners Jane and Nina. Can you spot my work? You can find All the luck in the world in Gerard Doustraat nr 86, in this street you have some other really nice design shops and even a shop selling jummie macarons called poptasi
Last night I sewed a doll sweater and it turned out quite nice, I have tried sewing sweaters before but failed every time so now that I found the secret of making mini sweaters I could not stop and I made about 15 sweaters ;-) Here are some of my favourites.
One of the shops I visited while I was in London was the Cloth House, I have been there before and visited the website a few times but being there again was so great. I felt like a kid in a candystore, so many lovely fabrics, ribbons, threads and much more.... I bought some really nice tye dye jeans fabric for some doll pants but wantyed to buy much more!
So here it is the Hema rack that I saw at the pressday, I found a nice place for it in my studio and had a great time filling it with my japanese tapes, paper bags, wrapping paper, siccors and other craft materials. The rack is not big enough to hold my whole tape collection but I think it is a great addition to my workspace and looks great to!
Last week I visited Hema pressday with Esther from Babyccino. As always we were welcomed with fresh and colourful products and a table full of jummie cakes, easter eggs, sandwiches and more...
Here are some of the products I liked the most, the blue sewingmachine is still on my favourite list and now they will also have a pink one, they will be availible in the shop in March. Of course the craft corner and desk area where my favourite with the new rack, I love this rack that you can use to store your pretty papers, tapes, sissors etc... actually I liked it so much that I bought it straight away !
After a longer break than I plannend I'm back again. November and December where busy months and after that I needed some time offline focusing on my family, home, work and myself, I have missed blogging and I cannot wait to start again, I will share some pictures of my Paris and London trips very soon.
