Wednesday inspiration board #18 ::: Party flags

March is a real party month in my family.
We have so much birthdays and almost every Sunday we come together with the whole family to celebrate someone's birthday.
Thank God, I'm born in January.
I wouldn't like to share the birthday attention with someone else.
Some inspiration to make your own party flags or you can simply buy one of these:

I got spoiled!

I didn't write many messages about 'my daily life' lately.
The reason is very simple... there's not much going on except for school, school and school...
I planned to do so much when my boyfriend's away but things just didn't always go how I wanted it. It might sound stupid but know i realise that when he's away, a big part of me's also away. We've been together for so long now, day and night, that i cannot be without him anymore. This year we know each other for 10 years and being separated for 3 whole months, feels much longer than i thought. Thank god we do skype a lot! During the day I don't really feel sad or something about it, but in the evening when i'm at home... it feels strange to be 'alone'. I do have my mother and sister here in the house, but that's not the same. I can't wait to go back to him the 1st of April.

Wednesday inspiration board #17 ::: Stairs

Hmm... stairs?
Yes baby! Stairs are new projects for many people.
They don't have to be boring. Watch these lovely photos to get some new inspiration.
I especially love the one with the books on each step.
I would love to make that one my new home project, but unfortunately I think my mother wouldn't be that happy with me changing the stairs in my home.. so I'll have to wait a few more years.

DIY ::: Fabric keychain

This week i made a keychain for myself.
Making a keychain is very simple. This is how I worked to make mine:

First I took a piece of fabric.
I choose this one because I already cutted out that circle for something else, but it wasn't the right size.

Wednesday inspiration board #15 ::: Washi

I love to work with washi tapes and Japanese paper! It's such a great material to work with.
And too bad.. or maybe it's very good, but it's so addictive to buy LOTS of them! You can have them in all kind of colors and patterns. And what's even better... you can do so many many projects with washi tapes and Japanese paper. These are 5 items from my Etsy favorites list that might give you some inspiration aswell.

Song of the month #8 ::: Soley - Smashed birds

One of the songs i listen to most on my mp3 at this moment is 'Smashed birds' from Soley.
This song is from her album 'We sink'.
A great album! I listen to it in the car, but mostly when i'm laying in bed.
