Bad hair days…

A quick get-well-soon-card for my favorite hairdresser. What are we without our hair artists?!

(it reads: Femke, we miss you!)



And on my way to delivery I discovered this sweet question on the side of a building. One of Utrecht’s most famous graffiti artists, Jan is de Man, asking his girlfriend to marry him.

To paint a whole house for the one you love…!


A personal touch to a wedding present… the fingerprint guestbook!

Don’t you love making something special for people that are dear to you?

On my trip through California I was pointed out the American trend of the fingerprint guestbook. Returning home to the most awesome wedding* ever I decided to make one for my very special friends.
Thankfully, they loved the idea just the same: guests leaving their fingerprints forming a very personal map to a beautiful memory.

The friends I made this for are almost as much into their garden as they are into each other (oh my… their garden should have it’s own blog, but that’s a whole different story). Their wedding card showed a peaceful path surrounded by trees and huge beams of sunlight welcoming the viewer. I used this as inspiration for the jar of fireflies below.

I think this would make for a nice addition to my Etsy shop, maybe featuring some more wedding products. What do you think?
