New items in my shop.

2014-03-31

I have been working for three days on my new necklaces and decals. Things kept being added to my to do-list. Labels, photos, more labels and then more photos. Then to edit all the photos and put everything in the right bag with the right notes. I made tiny fabric bags for the necklaces and more labels. And gosh three days went by and finally everything is done. Sort of.

I’ve added lots of decals and necklaces to my Etsy this evening. I’m so excited about these things!

My necklaces are made with small light ball chains and wood beads which I’ve painted in different lovely shades. A lot of pastels and gold.

My decals are hand cut, my hand has been tired. They make every room fun, and will make furniture happy. There’s loads of different triangles, fun animals and a nifty Narwhal.

You can find everything in my shop. I hope you’ll like them all! <3


Awesome fabric.

I just found this fabric on Etsy, it’s from the shop Cottonblue who just reopened. They offered a 30% coupon code to previous customers, I had to use it when I saw these fabrics.

 


Building a desk.

2014-03-07

Working on getting my room ready still. I’ve had two different desks set up since we lived in our apartment. One for my computer and one for my sewing machine. It’s looking kind of messy with two different ones now, so I’ve been working on a new desk.

I’ve bought a long white board from a building store, it’s about 2450x600mm. I found legs at Ikea and a white cupboard to hide my computer in. I’ve done an ‘ikea hack’ to the legs.

I marked up 22cm from the bottom and taped them.

They are curvy and called Nipen.

I bought pink paint, the same colour as my wall paper base. It has a little bit of a purple tone to it. I’m not very much into pink, but from the wall paper colours pink was the best way to go.┬á I didn’t want a dark colour (dark purple or black), and orange wasn’t an option. Matt keeps saying my room is looking like a Power Puff room.. he must have watched that show a lot.

And this is after the second paint layer. Looking pretty neat. Can’t wait to get this done!

My parents are coming up here next weekend to help me set it up. Matt is going to Italy for a week of skiing so I’ll have some company.

I really love my current desk, it’s from Ikea called Johan. They don’t make it any more, and I wish I could store it somewhere for the future but there is just no room. I tried talking Matt into taking it apart and putting it in the closet.. but he didn’t go for it. I’ll probably sell it, reluctantly.


Triangles.

2014-03-05

I got the fabric I ordered from Ottobre at the end of last week. It’s super soft and the colours are just great. I made a pair of baby leggings today, in size 12-18 months. They are up for grabs if anyone feels the love.

Lying next to them are some of my decals.
