Freebie! What’s Your Sign – Zodiac Constellation Cards

I promised a friend that I would make simple, modernistic zodiac cards for a mini-project she’s working on. I also thought that while I'm it, I might as well make them in 3x4 card version, because we could always use more 3x4 zodiac constellation cards in life. Here are your free Zodiac cards from A to C! That's Aquarius to Capricorn, by the way. And I know we only have one sign each, but it's a download one, download all thing in a complete set, so hope you find some uses for the other cards as well. If you're anything like me anyway, any memory-keeping you're doing is usually with someone else as the subject. To download, simply click the here ...

Hej London! The Pop-up kikki.K Store in Covent Garden

My dreamy winter wonderland this year has zilch to do with snowflakes and things pale. It's me, so it's any place with stationery, mint and pastels, Swedish design and some more stationery.London welcomes its first kikki.K outlet with a beautiful, beautiful pop-up (yes, pop-up!) store in Covent Garden, in the fews weeks leading to the opening of their official, grand store. I dropped by the store as soon as I was able to and true to the kikki.K promise, every single item inside the wonderland was delectable and oh so gorgeous. Curious about what's inside? Check out the kikki.K's feature of their Hej London pop-up shop here. It's so pretty, but then again, you must already know that! I rarely take photographs inside shops because dictates on that differ between establishments (some don't allow photo-taking inside and for good reasons) so if I may, I'm borrowing the kikki.K photos on ...

Halloween 2015: DIY Twig Balls

By now, we all know what I love and what I am a sucker for: decor that has anything to do with wood and simple DIYs. I am especially loving me some DIY twig balls because they are as natural and rustic as they get, and they are not that hard to do.And since it's Halloween season, we are not done "Halloweening" the studio yet. So what do we have? But we don't have to stop there, right? What else can we do with DIY twig balls and make it Halloween-y? Halloweenish? Exactly. Light them up! Fire (or an illusion of) and wood (or bits of) just naturally and attractively go well together. What I really like about this is that there are only two things we need for this DIY and not one of them is adhesives. Simply, we will need: twigs + led tealights That's right: twigs from ...
