The time my birthday rolls around is always a time of reflection to me. Even more than around new year’s I must admit. Today I’m giving my 16 year old me some advice I would love to have had when I actually was that age. Click through for more!
If you’re following me on instagram, you might have already seen it: I took off on a mini-vacation to the U.K. last week. One of John’s best friends moved to England a couple of years ago and he celebrated his fourtieth birthday last week. This was the perfect opportunity to pay him and his lovely girlfriend a visit for a couple of days. I even managed to create a teeny-tiny llama-invasion. Click through for more!
Sunday is ‘the day': I will be turning 28. And without getting heavy-hearted, I can hardly believe I’m getting ‘that old’. When I was a little girl, I used to think life was basically over by the time you almost turned 30. While the opposite is true; life’s only just begun. And although I’d love to relive some parts of my childhood, I’m also very curious to see what ‘grown-up-life’ has left in store for me. So, here’s to my birthday that’s coming up this weekend!
Not only I will be celebrating my birthday later this month; so will my blog. Although I’ve had this website as a portfolio for my illustration work for quite some time, I only started using it as a blog after I graduated art school two years ago. This ‘blog-birthday’ seemed like the perfect opportunity to roundup some of my favourite blogposts of the past two (and then some) years. Click through for more!
What’s a party without gifts? Right: a whole lotta nothin’! Because I like giving away things (like these these summery phone wallpapers for instance), I’m now giving a 10% dicount on EVERYTHING in my Etsy shop. Want to know more? Heck yes! Just click through.
I know, I know. I promised you guys a month full of party-themed blogposts at the beginning of May. And as much as I’d like to write all these posts, a HUGE amount of work messed things up a little bit. But hey, other projects are important too! And although I’m still working through this silly amount of projects, I’m still trying to provide you with some awesome stuff to read here. I’ll be giving you all a little discount on items in my Etsy shop later this week, and I’ll be digging through my blog archives and serve you the best reads from these past two blogging years so far. Because not only I will be celebrating my birthday later this month; so will my blog. But let’s not get ahead of things and get started with an all new Inspiration Monday.
Let’s face it: being a workaholic means that my withlist is always full of things that I want for my business. I’d rather spend my money on having a new postcard or sticker printed than on a new pair of shoes, for example. I guess I’m just weird in that way. So, when I get to make a birthday wishlist, it kind of always contains items ‘for the business’. And as my birthday is coming up later this month, I thought I’d share what’s on that business wishlist of mine right now. Click through for more!
So, I checked my phone the other day, and know what I saw? A CHRISTMAS screen wallpaper. No joke. Although I still very much like the Festive Phone Wallpapers I offered as a free download on this blog last year, I thought it was high time for some (temporary) replacement. After all: it can’t be Christmas all year long (unfortunately). Click through for more about these freebees!
I might be too busy to be blogging, a fresh dose of inspiration is always welcome if you ask me! Especially on mondays. Because, let’s face it: there’s another very busy week ahead of us. But with these images we are ready to face this week head on. Enjoy!
It’s a little more quiet than usual on this blog this week. My schedule is SO full of commissioned projects that I simply don’t really have time for blogging right now. But that doesn’t mean I couldn’t make time to give you an update of what I’ve been up to this past month. Click through for my April photo diary!
