Happy Monday everybody! It’s time for a brand new Inspiration Monday today. I admit I did miss creating these inspirational collages for you these past weeks. Doing so always gets me in my workflow. Whatever you’ll be up to this week, with this Inspiration Monday your week is bound to be off to a good start. Enjoy your week!
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!
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?
It’s an extra festive monday today because it’s Easter and we are enjoying an extra day off. So whether you’re still in bed enjoying a lazy morning, are getting ready for brunch at you parents’ house or if you’re one of the unlucky gals that has to work on this holiday; this day is bound to start off good with this Inspiration Monday. Enjoy today and the rest of your week!
A lot has changed for me in this past year. We finally found a new home, I got engaged and I experienced a lot of personal growth. And it wasn’t until recently that I realised that this growth has become visible in my work too. The moment that marks that specific feeling of realisation is when I was scrolling through my instagram timeline. I noticed that the pastel/faded colours and the heavy ‘Nashville’ filter that have been ‘my instagram signature’ for so long had slowly evolved into more colourful, brighter photos with more contrast. And then it came to mind that that change had not only showed itself in how I present myself online, it had also happened in real life. Big time. My wardrobe has become much more colourful than it used to be and I decorated our house in a very different way than I did my previous home. And most of all: I realised I had never felt more like ‘myself’ than I do right now. Maybe I grew up. Although I really hope I didn’t, because I love to bring out the child in me.

The Dutch Fashionista Magazine dedicated an entire shopping page to the llama. I was very happy when they contacted me to ask if they could feature my llama tattoo en llama carousel art print But of course! More after the jump!
And we’re right at the start of another week (again!). The weather has been pretty nice here in good ol’ Holland, which works wonders for my overall mood. It brought me lots of energy to start some exciting new projects. I also have a lot to share with you in the near future: some of my products were in a magazine and I made some changes in the presentation of my business to the outside world, which I’m looking forward to telling you about later this week. I’m about to get started on some fun stuff, but not before I shared another fresh dose of Inspiration with you guys. Enjoy!
When I was a kid, finding easter eggs that my parents had hidden in our back yard was one of the highlights of my year. Not to mention the painting the eggs before or afterwards. Because I love bringing out the child in me (and others) I designed this DIY (with free printable!) to make your own stylish bag to collect all the eggs in you found during the egghunt. Ready? Let’s go! More after the jump.
