Inspiration Monday

Today is not your regular monday. Today, for me, is the start of my ultimate party week as this wednesday, I’ll turn 30! And although age is nothing but a number, I think turning 30 is actually a pretty big milestone. Which is why I’ll be celebrating in style. All week. If you want to be kept updated on my party week, be sure to follow me on instagram (@verabertens). And be sure to keep an eye on this blog, as I’ll be sharing a rather festive guest-post for Team Confetti on my actual birthday. Until then: enjoy this extra festive Inspiration Monday.

My work bucket list

In less than a week I’ll be celebrating my 30th birthday. I always think of my birthday as an opportunity to think about what has happened over the past year and what I’d like to accomplish in the year that’s ahead of me. Because turning 30 is a little more of a big deal than celebrating any other age (at least for me), I wanted to take some extra time to think about what might be in store for me work-wise. That’s why I’m sharing my work bucket list with you today! More after the jump.

New in: FalalaLlama holiday greeting card

Christmas comes early this year! Yes, you read it right in this post’s title: I designed a Holiday greeting card. Although the real design-part of this postcard took place several months ago, sometimes the process from sketch to finished product takes a little longer than you imagined. And although I usually design only one Christmas card each year, this was one of those ideas I simple HAD to get out of my system. More after the jump!

Business cards for John

Although it may look like not much has happened here on the blog, a lot has been going on behind the scenes these past few weeks. This business card design for John (my fiancé) was among those things. John was invited to be a speaker at a philosophy conference in Parma (Italy) and right before he was about to take off, we realized he didn’t have a business card to present to new contacts and possible new clients. And so I decided to design him one last-minute. More after the jump!

Inspiration Monday

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog, but as several times before, the reason is that I was simply busy with other things. I have been working at the TextielMuseum a lot these past weeks (I’m a tour guide and workshop teacher there) and to stay sane, I did not oblige myself to work on my business or blog every single night. John has suffered a burn-out a couple of years ago and I am trying to stay far from getting one too. So, I just had to accept that I was busy with other things and time for updating my blog and designing new products for my business would come. And here I am, sure enough, providing you with a brand new Inspiration Monday. I’ll be starting up some new projects later this week and I have a lot of new stuff to tell you about, so stay tuned for some news here on this blog. What are you up to this week?
