I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve gotten so used to living ‘the normal life’ that the holidays seem to have taken place ages ago. Although everything seems to be back to normal, my life is pretty much the opposite right now. My bestie left the country for seven months to live and work on the other side of the world. Although there’s all kinds of modern technology nowadays to keep in touch, sending messages with a ten hour time difference simply isn’t the same. But I would’t change it for anything right now, because this is what she’s been wanting to do for a long time now. ‘If you love someone, set them free’; that’s what I’m trying to do. I’ll comfort myself with this dreamy Inspiration Monday for now. Have a great week everyone!
We’re almost halfway January already (like, really?!), but I still haven’t brought you up to speed about the last to months of 2016. So here I am with a Photo Diary of november and december!
A new year comes with new plans. At least it does for me. And although I decided not to make any New Year’s resolutions, I did make a plan to make my business function as efficiently as possible in the coming year. How? By designing a new kind of schedule I call the ‘Freelance GIRLBOSS Schedule’, which I’d love to share with you today. More after the jump!
Okay, I’ll admit it took me about a week to get back into my normal workflow. But now that I’ve succeeded in doing so, I think it’s safe to say that I’m glad to be back. I had a great time taking it easy in December, but there’s nothing that beats a proper (work) rhythm. Speaking of which: I’ll be sharing more about that later this week, as I’ve been working on a new freelance-planning that covers every aspect of entrepreneurship on a weekly basis. But first things first, something that used to have rhythm too: an Inspiration Monday. Enjoy!
Yes, it’s true. In 2018, John and I will be saying ‘yes’ to one another! Aaaaahhhhh!! (More after the jump)
The holidays are officially over and my business has been fully up and running again since this week. This does take some getting used to, as I decided to take it easy in December. But I had good reason to. I had been overloading myself with work for a whole year and by December, there wasn’t much left of the happy person I normally am. I was exhausted. Physically and mentally. And although some great things did happen in 2016 (my first book was published and John and I finally found a new home), I didn’t really feel like looking back. I didn’t publish a ‘best of 2016’ post of any sorts. I just really wanted the year to be over. More after the jump!
My life is all about Christmas decorations at the moment and the one thing that I always have on my Christmas dinner-table are Christmas Crackers. I’ve been wanting to make these myself for years, but I never got around to it. This year, I finally made the time to do so and I love sharing this DIY (and free printable!) with you today. Easy? Yes! Festive? Absolutely! The prettiest Crackers one has ever seen? Oh, hell yes! Let’s get started! More after the jump.
I haven’t forgotten about you, you guys. I just had some crazy busy months and I need(ed) some time off. So along with fellow Team Confetti members Olga and Ingrid I decided to take a break in december. I agreed with myself that I’m allowed to do only things that HAVE to be done and things that I really want to do this month. One of the things I really (really!) wanted to do will appear here on the blog tomorrow; it’s a DIY that’s been in my head for years and that I just had to get out of my system. The rest of december, I’ll just see what’ll happen. Letting go can be the greatest of feelings sometimes. So maybe I’ll talk to you on here before the end of this year and maybe I won’t. We’ll see. Have a great month and Happy Holidays everyone!
‘Sitting right’. You can read about the subject just about everywhere and it’s also a subject that makes your head spin right out of control once you start reading into it. This was no different for me when I was looking for a new desk chair about a year and a half ago. I started getting severe back and neck pains after spending hours on end behind my computer and I decided it was time for something different. So the search for an entirely different chair began. Entirely different, since I couldn’t see how a similar chair to my ‘ordinary desk chair’ could improve my posture and decrease the pain I had.
That search brought me to Varier Furniture and after being able to try one of their Thatsit Balans chairs for a month (free of charge) I decided to invest in one. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. More after the jump!
I’ve been talking about it for a while now, but today I can finally officially present my new Holiday Greeting Card here on the blog! Working on my annual Holiday Greeting Card is always one of the most fun projects of the year for me. And that might just have something to do with the fact that I get to listen to my Spotify Christmas playlist while working on it. From idea, to sketching to photographing and editing the card; the process in general always really gets me in the holiday mood. More after the jump!
