I've had a lot on my mind lately.. I went shopping for the new house together with my mom. I immediately fell in love with a lovely darkbrown wallpaper. I love to have a lighter wall too in my room, now it's beige but i wanted more colour. Too bad they didn't have any mustard coloured wallpapers, so i choose light/lime green. Can't wait to see my new room in these colours..
These are some lovely handmade items from great shops.
Since January i've been looking for a student job for the weekends. I have send lots and lots of e-mails.. but sometimes just no response (just rude!) and after having a few application interviews, I was giving up hope... I really thought finding a job as a student for the weekends would be easy... but no it clearly isn't.
This simple project is made by soaking cloth doilies in sugar starch and then forming it around a balloon. Once the starch dries, pop the balloon and you have a romantic tea light holder that can be used everywhere. - DIY by Budget Dream Weddings
It looks like spring is in town for sure! I saw lots of little lambs lately and i thought it would be great to make an inspiration board about them. On Etsy I found some great items to share with you..
Crea-Parels is this month's head sponsor on my blog and waw.. i hope you already visited her facebookpage or website. She has some very lovely stuff over there! Just like myself she likes to work with flowers and guess what?! All earrings, earstuds and rings including roses do have special prices now!
Have you already seen the movie 'The Bucket List'? For those who haven't seen it, here's a short description.With this film in my mind i decided a few weeks ago, i wanted to make my very own bucket list. But... making this list is much harder than i expected.. I thought making such list would be easy. I know perfectly what i want to see in the world but on the other hand, there're so many things i haven't even seen myself.. so how can i know i would like to see them? I started with making a pinterest board. Looking at other people's travel boards inspires me a lot to go and make a journey myself. So my bucket list now became a dynamic thing.. it changes all the time. And maybe that's the thing about it that i like. Somehow this list also made me realise that i'm so small in this world.. i haven't seen much of it yet.. i hope i'll win the lottery or something like that to go on a world trip. You can take a look at my list when you click here.
Dear common flower, that grow'st beside the way, Fringing the dusty road with harmless gold, First pledge of blithesome May, Which children pluck, and, full of pride uphold...
James Russell Lowell -To the Dandelion
English readers might think i'm a bit crazy now for making an inspiration board about Dandelions. I heard this word a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I fell in love with it. It's such a powerfull and beautiful word. It sounds so much better than the Dutch word for this flower. And ooh common don't tell me you don't love to blow these seeds away! Everyone likes that! ;) This board includes items with dandelions.
This song of the month is a bit later online then expected because i'm travelling right now.. I've seen many great things until now, but i'll write about that later in a photo blog post. I wanted to share this lovely song from a 'new' Belgian artist: Renée. This song is echoing in my head ever since the moment i've heard it for the first time on Studio Brussels (Stubru: a Belgian radio channel). I like it a lot and i hope you'll like it too.
I would love you to meet a Belgian woman who loves to create some unique jewelry... Yes! We do share the same hobby and i think it's great to get connected with other creative souls! Let's take a look behind the scenes and meet the woman who started with 'Crea-Parels'.
What's your shop name? Where did it come from?
The name speaks for it self. “Crea”
means creative – “Parels/Pearls”, because most of my creations include pearls.
How amazing is this! This is the 4th month that I can show you some great shops/blogs!
These sponsors are really varied: paper goods, handmade jewelry, clothing, makeup.
I hope you will have some time to take a look in their shops.
