Blending Blue

Blending Blue is a new project by Lisette, also the owner of little Z, a shop with handmade stamps and paper goods.
On this weblog you will find free patterns and free downloads. You will also find links to other sites/blogs where you can find free patterns/tutorials. And because there is so much wonderful stuff out there she will be regularly hosting a guest design from other designers.

So enjoy! Be creative and please share your thoughts and suggestions...

Mr A Balladeer

Beautiful song by Marinus de Goederen, frontman of a Balladeer. It definitely makes my Monday morning!

A little mistake from me.... I meant to say that the give away closed last sunday (the 17th), but I did not look very well on the calender and picked the 24th. Okay, so one more week for you to leave a comment ;).
In the meantime, I found this lovely apple jar in the second hand store. I think it is so amazing if you see what other people "throw" away, don't you think? The jar is just so perfect for my collection of vintage buttons, I love it.
I bought the apple and pear fabric under the jar at Ahlens (a department store) in Sweden last summer.

New fabric line + give away

Finally! They are here and I am proud to have them in the shop!
A new line of fresh and clean organic fabrics. Better for the farmers who grow the cotton and better for the world. And of course with great prints!
To celebrate this new line, I will give away a fat quarter set of these fabrics (5 FQ's) and all you have to do is leave a comment here or send me an e-mail before Sunday January 24th. On Monday, I will draw the lucky winner.

Snowtime fun

Yesterday, we went to the "Loonse en Drunense duinen". It is a national park, not so far away from us and it is the perfect place to have a nice walk on a sundaymorning. We took the sleigh with us to sleigh from the dunes. Great fun! And of course a hot chocolate milk when we were finished sleighing.

The christmas holiday was the perfect time to work on this project: a new lamp for our hallway. The base is a simple rice paper lampshade from IKEA. The flowers are made of different origami papers attached to the lampshade using Aslan (a double sided adhesive foil).
