The illustration above is kind of an oldie, but I thought it was appropriate for this particular post, since I’m about to evaluate exactly how happy this past year was.
Because this year, I made them for the first time: New Year’s Resolutions. I usually don’t make them, because I really never bother looking back on what I made of them at the end of the year. But that’s all about to end now, because today I’ll be telling you what has become of the resolutions I made at the start of this year. Which ones are fulfilled? Which ones got stuck somewhere halfway 2014? Or are there even resolutions I never bothered working on anyway? Read on to find out!
With only a week until Christmas Day, you should probably have gotten most of your Christmas shopping done by now, but there’s always room for some last-minute gift shopping right? This week, I’ve rounded up another sixteen wonderful handmade gift ideas for you to enjoy and hopefully purchase!
Some of you may have already seen it on instagram: Last week, I sent out a little snail mail to my clients, business partners, friends and family. Because this time of year is the time to be ‘giving back’. And I really wanted to say thank you to the awesome people who have been working with me and supporting me throughout last year. So I thought up a little personalized package for each and every single one of my ‘connections’, including a christmas card, personal note and (last but certainly not least) a little ‘Planet Xmas Adventurer’.

It is all about to start now. The christmas tree is decorated, the first gifts are wrapped and my christmas playlist is on repeat. I simply can’t wait for it all to start. Just a few more weeks and we’ll indulge ourselves in fairy lights, good food and even better company. But first, another work week. Because some things just never stop. So here’s the usual Inspiration Monday to get you started this week.
A little while ago, I got an e-mail from the lovely Anke of ‘Maak Magazine’ (an awesome Dutch DIY magazine). She asked me if she could do a feature about my ‘Christmas in a Cup’ workshop in the special Christmas edition of the magazine. Uhh…YEAH!
What started as ‘just a feature’ (but very awesome none the less) ended up as a cover illustration, feature and interview. Click through to see it all.
Another week, another Treasury Thursday! I can’t believe that it will be Christmas Day in just two weeks. Which means that you’ve got only a couple of weeks to do some handmade Holiday shopping! This week, I’ve rounded up my favourite ‘Winter Blues’ for you all. Click through to admire this week’s finds!
Although I’ll be at the Mini Market at Elle Aime this saturday first, the next Christmas event is already planned! On sunday, December 21 I’ll have a stall at the Happy X Market at ‘Theekamer Pien’ in Breda, The Netherlands. So stop by to do some Happy X shopping between noon and 5 pm!

Although thanksgiving is long gone and we don’t even really celebrate that holiday in The Netherlands I want to shout out a big thanks today. To you all. Because my business and myself have grown a fair amount this year. And I could not have done that without you guys. My readers, my clients and of course my friends and family. A very big thank you and lots of love for you all. I’m so grateful that you make the fact that I can do what I love most every single day into reality.
This time of year is the time to ‘give back’. Read on to see what gifts I have for you today!
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had equally as good a weekend as I did. I went on some serious christmas-decoration shopping this saturday (after a very satisfactory ‘Sinterklaas-eve’ on friday) and on sunday I went all-out with decorating my christmas tree. The time that tree is up is SUCH a wonderful time to be spending at home. I’m a sucker for glitters, lights and anything kitsch to be honest. But after such a wonderful weekend, today it’s back to business as usual, so here’s your beloved Inspiration Monday to kick your week off with!
You guys! I’m so happy to announce that my website and shop were featured in last week’s issue of Flair Magazine! Awesome! Click through for more images.
