Etsy lab in Bruges

Yesterday there was an Etsy lab in Bruges.
The whole day was about 'how to be a creative entrepreneur'.
We learned a lot about networking, social media and ofcourse we got some quick tips & tricks from Etsy itself.

Festival of Creativity

Last weekend I helped as a volunteer on the Etsy booth at the Festival of Creativity in Turnhout, near Antwerp.
I had a very nice day and I hope many people will take a look at the Etsy website.
In Belgium Etsy isn't very famous yet.

Meet RobbieLee from Chickiedee handmade

Chickiedee Handmade is my large sponsor of this month.
I'm so proud that I could interview RobbieLee about herself and her shop.
I hope you fall in love with her items as much as I am!
She and her shop are amazing!


Who are you? – Where do you come from?
My shop and blog share the name Chickiedee | Handmade. It originally started out as Chickiedee | Modern Apparel for Babies, but I've since expanded beyond only baby products.

Chickiedee, not to be confused with Chickadee, has been one of my many nicknames since I was 3 years old. My mother started calling me that when I got my little yellow coat with a baby chick on it. It was the fuzziest and sweetest little coat ever! The name has stuck with me and become a part of my small business.

My name is RobbieLee and I was born and raised in beautiful Colorado. I travel a lot and enjoy seeing the world, but love knowing that I can come home to my little suburban town.

I went to school for Graphic Design + Animation and have always loved to craft. I combine all of my skills, talents and passion into Chickiedee. I really couldn't do what I do without the support of my family, friends + readers, so thank you.

Song of the month #14 ::: Asaf Avidan - Reckoning song

This song has been in my head ever since i've first heard it a few weeks ago.
I do not really like the mixed version. I think the original is the best.

Meet the October sponsors!

Chickiedee Shop + Blog are places to peek into my daily life and see what I make and do. I'm easily inspired by other creatives and things around me, so my blog is a place where I can share that as well.

Recreating a necklace

A little while ago I had one of the most difficult tasks I've ever had.
Someone I vaguely now, asked me to design a new necklace with her old necklace, earrings and bracelet. I needed a lot of time to create a simple design that looked like she wished it.

Peacock love

Recently I started a new project for myself: making jewelry with feathers.
I bought some wonderful long peacock feathers and brown feathers and made my first earrings with the peacock ones. I'm very happy with the result and I adore the colours in those beautiful feathers.

Flea market happiness

Yesterday there was a flea market where I live.
Normally I used to have a little place for me on it too, but with my exams last week I couldn't prepare myself enough. And maybe that was all good! Because... I found a fantastic vintage antique letterpress type drawer! It's just great! I was looking for one for about two years and I've never found one as beautiful as this one! I'm in love with it! I already see my jewelry in it!

Wednesday inspiration board #23 ::: Close to nature

It's been a while since I posted a new Wednesday inspiration board. I must say that there was not so much time for me to go and find some new inspirational photos or items. But hey.. here I am! I thought this 'Bohemian' style photos would fit great with the shop of 'Roots & Feathers', my head sponsor of this month.

Meet Laura from Roots & Feathers ::: interview

August has been a little bit more quiet than other months, because I made a long journey and i don't like automatic blog posts. Roots & Feathers, the large sponsor of this month - with Laura behind it - is one of my big favorites on the world wide web. Laura and me, are different in style and she inspires me a lot and i look up at her for all the things that she'd achieved. She's very sweet and always ready for a talk, even though i just met her through her own blog. I'm so so very proud for having her here on my blog and i hope that you guys will make a little click over to her corner on the internet. You won't regret it!

Shop/blog name?
Roots and Feathers. It is a place where I have welcomed my soul to do the creating. Here you will find my collection of grassroot bohemian designs. This line is inspired by earthy native elements, a traveling gypsy soul & the feeling you get while walking around barefoot at a music festival.

Our creative room

Finally we found some time to make our creative room/atelier at my boyfriend's home a bit more cosy. I think it already looks very nice and i can't wait for my exams to be over so i can get to work in here:

Back from a paradise not so far away

Since two days, we are back from Sweden & Denmark.
It was an amazing trip! We saw lots and lots of wild animals.
We had the best views while wild camping. It was GREAT!
I will place another blog post online later with more photos from this road trip.

An adventure ahead!

Pinned Image

Yaaay today is the day! I'm on the road again... <3
Let's go on a roadtrip, we (the boyfriend and me) thought a couple of months and so we planned our Scandinavian trip. Uhm planned.. we only choose a couple of camping sites on our way and that's about it.
From today I will show you the little things we've planned for now.. our thoughts can change while we are driving there.

I won't be able to answer my e-mails or other messages here, on Etsy, Facebook or BBN.
I will answer them when i'm back. That's probably around the 13th of August.

My shop will stay open, but every item ordered from the 27th of July will be shipped on 15th of August.

I hope you'll have some nice days to,
Eline S.
