Christmas Countdown – 25

Welcome to my new Etsy shop!

Paint Explorations – Wonder Woodland

Hi everybody,   I've recently started a new project to paint 30 min each to improve my painting skills. I've never really gotten into painting because it just didn't feel comfortable to do for me. It's messy and there's no undo button and let's be honest here, I'm a total control freak,...

52 Greetings N°.1

Hello everybody! This week I've started a new challenge to create a new greeting card for every week during the next year. I haven't done any challenges like this in ages. And I have to admit I was never really good at them, I've tried a '40 days of hand...

Blueprint, here I come!

Hello everybody! It's been way too long since my last blog post. I've been away to Thailand for 2 months, enjoying some great weather, beautiful beaches, amazing food and spending time in my home away from home, Nong Khai with wonderful friends.   And while I was away I made the decision...

Colour Inspiration Thursdays

This week I got my colour inspiration from this interior design picture. I found it on Pinterest, I'm not entirely sure where it originally was taken from but I think it could have from an issue of Marie Claire Maison. I'm a big fan of Mid Century interior design and...

New look!

Hi everybody! As you can see I've spruced up my website a little bit. A new logo, moved the menu from the left to the top, some new fonts and colours, haaa, almost feels like a brand new home! I hope you enjoy the fresh look as much as I...

Colour Inspiration Thursdays
