i just wanted to share some of the dear beauty i’ve been hearing in the creative world! i’ve done a little gift shopping recently & wanted to share with you a sampler of what’s been in my heart-cart (& now in heart-hand!).

i found this sweet softie (paris) at!

this fun book can be found at to inspire some fun illustration attire!

the print above is from ms. gorgeous aimee from artsyville & you can find her at

i’ve also bought sweet stickers from

as these are gifts, i’m not showing any more pictures (although i’ve already probably shown more than i ought to!). ๐Ÿ™‚

much love to all that is brimming out of all your beautiful hearts & hands. xo

I have chosen not to make a double blog (yet) as it might be confusing for my current readers. Happy for you to become a follower & I promise I will at least post plenty of pictures & possible as well summaries in English.
    By the way the most part of my webshop is bi-langual. They are: &
