Last friday I joined Iris for the opening of the wonderful Urlaub Illustration and Concept Store. What an inspiring place! Ellen did such a great job putting it all together. There was so much to see (and buy). I really love to see products that were made with such attention and care. And of course there were lovely people to chat to and eat with. A great evening! Of course I couldn’t resist buying something for our future baby girl. I also couldn’t resist leaving Ellen a little message about her shop with a funny little man on a chalkboard.
One thing we’ve been putting of for 2 years now is painting the stairs. So when Mini was on vacation with his grandparents a while ago we finally got to work. As this was probably the last chance we would have this year. Living in a 30′s home that has seen a lot of use and not that much of love, our stairs looked like this:
And after 10 days of sanding, undercoating and painting our stairs now look like this:
All we have to do is paint the horrible gray another colour.
Oh, and did I mention we have 3 staircases?
Finally a blogpost again! I’ve been pretty low on energy this whole pregnancy. Usually I blog after putting Mini to bed. But being pregnant means that most nights Mini’s bedtime is my bedtime. Not so good for the blog! But I’m going to try and make a little more time for it. Changing my ways and writing before Mini’s bedtime instead of trying to after. I’ll also be doing a little catch up on the things I did manage to do the past month(s).
(The little piece of poster is by zilverblauw of course!)
We’ve got some pretty great news!
(I know it’s not completely new for those of you who follow me on instagram)
Our family is growing.
There’s going to be another mini around the house and we couldn’t be more excited! (or at least we will as soon as the morning sickness ends).
Right now the little baby is at 20 weeks and so far so good!
Time for some balloons…
Today it’s about making a fresh start!
I’ve been absent for quite a while. Why?
Well, I’ve basically been sick for a month and it really wasn’t that fun.
You know that state you get in when it’s just all about you feeling like a heated up corpse and you just can’t produce a single coherent thought about any other subject then how crappy you feel?
Well, that about sums up my month. One of the side effects of the whole thing was that I just had lost all inspiration to blog or even to look at my computer. Luckily with some meds things started to improve.
And last week I had my birthday (I finally got a DSLR camera!) and I started to feel a little better both physically and mentally. Hence the photo’s of garlands around the house, that’s me trying out my new camera!
I’ve got a lot of great things happening the next couple of months (more on that later). And I’m so excited to finally get back in the swing of things and actually start doing instead of doing nothing!
So this spring means a fresh start.
Cleaning up my computer I came across some forgotten photo’s. Last summer I meant to do a post about my accidental ombre wooden spoon, the spoon came into being while making an ombre duvet. I love little ‘accidents’ like that. The photo’s did give me serious winter blues and it made me long for summer. The bright colours, the warmth and the delicious fruit….
