I have this little fun DIY project to share with you guys especially with Valentine's day approaching. But I am sure that you don't say "I love you" to your dear ones just once a year, so this can be handy every time you want to say it in a little more special way. :)
Here's what you'll need and how to do it:
First, measure your paper and cut it into 3 pieces ( I used a 8x5 inches/ 300g watercolor paper). Then fold the paper pieces in 2.
Combine 1-2 cups of water and 1 tsp of gouache or watercolor paint then stir. Insert the folded paper in the colored water. Let it dry.
You can create stronger layers of color by adding from time to time a little more gouache color in the water. Use the paint brush to create new layers.
Let it dry and repeat as desired.
When all the color layers are done and dried, cut the angles of the card and the middle top so that it will form a geometric heart shape. After you're done the note cards are ready to write on! :)
Hope you'll enjoy this! Have fun! xo

I made this little pillow at the end of last year and thought I might introduce it to you. :) I painted the birdie with non toxic textile acrylic on white fabric and sew it by hand. I am planning on having a few of these in my shop when I will reopen it in April. :)
Hope you're having a lovely week! Xo!

My love just came home today after a few days work trip, so Sammy and I had a lot of time on our own with lovely visits from his auntie Estera in the evenings. Here are some pictures capturing just a few moments from the past days: pretty flowers in the window/ memories/ playing with Eric Carle's flash cards/ flowers on my work table/ playing around/ toys everywhere/ reading in the evenings/ happy feet/ note/ fresh home made cinnamon rolls for daddy's arrival.

When I was little I used to collect different candy, chocolate or perfume packagings that I really liked, I still do that sometimes. :) Here is a little selection of some inspiring packaging designs out there. Hope this will inspire you as well! Xo!

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of helping one of my friends, Kacie, on redesigning her photography business visual identity. As you compare the name and the logo you will get for sure the connection between the two. Her work is so beautiful, fresh and inspiring and you can see it on her Facebook page. Go take a look, you won't be disappointed! (website coming soon)
