Today is my birthday and I took some time to look back at last year. It was crazy, a love explosion when our daughter was born, a new life, a new perspective. I adore every minute and have more focus on my priorities nowadays. Which is a good thing and lead to a new ‘business’ approach as well. Lennebelle got a beautiful make over made by the wonderful illustrator and graphic designer Hyshil and I recently launched the new collection.
Take a look at Hyshil’s work here
Check out the new Lennebelle Lookbook here
And what’s better then showing the new designs in a pretty new layout and a new online shop?! I love working on the new design and will show the result to you soon.
Because I can be a scatterbrain I need to write things down on planners and to do lists. For me this works. Love the new planners, notebooks and diaries by Marjolein Delhaas. I already know my new planner for 2013 will come in very handy.
My world will probably be turned upside down in the beginning of 2013 with a little baby girl coming into our world. Some organisation to get a bit of daily routine will be very welcome.
To get yourself organised next year you can buy the beautifull planners and Two Thousand Thirteen diaries by Marjolein Delhaas here.
The room for the baby is a cosy corner room with lots of light because of three large windows with stained glass. It has white wooden floor and white walls. The rest is up to us to decorate and make it a pretty and comfortable room for our little girl.
The room is inspired by our trip into the Andes near Salta, Argentina where we visited the Valley of the Cacti. The stuffed cactus I bought over there (her first baby toy ^_^) The curtains will be made by Iefke de Roos. She will dye and print the fabric like the bags that I sell at minishop Confetti. It’s hard to choose; feather or cactus? Pink or green? It does not have to be all girly so I prefer the cactus, my love prefers the feathers (what do you think?)
I could not choose between Mabel the giraff or Ander, the lion is from Miga the Pan. I choose Ander, the lion, he is a bit handicaped because he misses one ear, but it makes him much less dangerous and better to keep her company while sleeping. The baby bed we found after searching for something else then everything you find at babystores is the ‘crisis bed’ by Piet Hein Eek. I love it!
We are still looking for a nice dresser. Any reccomandations are very welcome. At this moment I am thinking of a second hand piece and paint it in a nice colour. I love the paint by Studio IJM.
This is one of my ‘illustration’ assignments. The last one was for Petite Etoile, check out my drawings here. And this one was for the tape of the relaunch of the Swedish design classic the Triplexlamp. I came up with the different types of lamps in 5 different settings; in the kitchen, next to the couch, on a small table, next to the bed and on a desk. And this is the result!
Don’t forget to participate in the ‘Golden Give Away’!! The winner will be anounced this friday!
I am also doing another Give-Away over at Simple Blueprint! You can also join this one!
Last weekend was just amazing! The wedding was picture perfect and will share with you soon.
Yesterday I went to Swanmarket. It was nice not selling myself but being able to walk around and have coffee with friends in the sun. I bought two things that were on my wishlist for a long time now. The perfect calander/planner by graphic designer Marjolein Delhaas. It comes in single large sheets with a clip, I love the simplicity. You can buy it here and see more of Marjoleins’ work here.
Taking a look at my tumblr always makes me smile. It’s a summary of all the images, photo’s, music, video’ I like, love and inspire me! This is a small selection of recent picks. Check out sources and more here.
Last week I finished this wedding invitation! It was so much fun to do. Vanessa, the bride and co-owner of SHPPR first saw the business card I made for Pauline from Petite Passport and that’s how I got to make her wedding invitation.
I love to do this so when you would like me to make you an invitation, businesscard, website design or whatever you can think of just send me an e-mail and we will work it out! Now I will start working on the website design for a very cool childrens’ clothing shop! Will show you soon.
ps; I think these buttons with the different colored threads will do nicely as a bracelet too. What do you think?
Could not help myself! When I found out about the patters by Leann Shapton I also found this series and could not resist posting these flower paintings and there is more; the sunday walks serie and the monday shower song serie. Just love them all and read a nice interview about her here.
