My handmade business cards

Recently I run out of my business cards. So this time around I decided not to print new ones, but rather to make my own cards. All I needed was a stamp with my shop's name, url and e-mail (which I had custom made), nice thick paper and some washi tape. After a few hours of stamping my brand new handmade cards were ready.

Now I can make more of them whenever I want, plus I can change the design too if I get bored with the current one :) 

Isn't this little fox super cute?? I bought this stamp recently but unfortunately don't remember where from.

Sewing plans

And by sewing plans, I mean of course things I would like to make but never do :)

Anyway, I hope this time is different and I'll actually sew something... The New look 6107 arrived yesterday. I bought it mostly for the simple skirt pattern, but after taking a better look at it, plus some searching on the internet, I really like the blouse pattern. Especially views B and C.

The dress on the left is from Burda magazine (4/2013). It's a simple everyday dress and I really like it.

I'm still working on things for the upcoming market. It's next week!!! Happy!!!

Busy bee

These days find me busy with preparations. I'm going to take part in yet another KofferMarkt and I'm very excited about it. It's going to take place on the 8th of June in Potsdam.

Lately the weather here in Berlin is bad. Especially today, it rains constantly since the early morning. Although I would prefer it to be nice and warm outside, I kind of think that it helps me stay focused on all the work needed to be done :)

The best part of getting ready for any craft markets is the gathering of the supplies. In my case buying pretty fabrics and notions like these.

I have to confess though, not all af the fabrics are going to be used for the market purpose. In the second photo are the "all about me fabrics". I have a few patterns in mind for the top fabrics. I still try to find a nice pattern for the polkadots :) I would love to see them turn into a nice summer blouses I think.

I will share some preview photos of the things I have already made.

Happy Monsters Land news

I just listed two new monsters in my etsy shop.


Alfred the Commando

Every time I sew one of those Monsters I have so much fun. They make me smile, so I think it's a good sign :)

What do you think? Do you like them?

Craving the sun

We're back to the usual here in Berlin. Cold, rain, even some snow. Last weekend though was completely different. Warm and sunny and I really hoped it would last.

On Tuesday my friend Erika and I decided to take advantage of the sun. We met for lunch and a quick walk at the park. We went to a nice italian place and enjoyed some very tasty pizzas.

Say hi to Erika!
Look how nice she organized her pizza leftovers :)
They are even sort by color too! Super cute!
This is what I had. Yummy :)

After our lunch we went to a nearby park.

I really like when we meet. Even if it's only for a quick lunch. We don't know each other that long but somehow our conversations are always long and meaningful. It's good to have that...

Dreaming of summer...

The weather here is much much better. Although it's still cold. Especially in the evenings. But during the day the sun shines and the sky is blue. I'm dreaming of warmer days... I want to put my heavy clothes away. I can't wait to see Berlin all green again. It's a beautiful place to be.

In that spirit here are a few summer hats that either are already available, or will be listed in my etsy store soon.

What do you think?
