Bright (and light) little treats

A lot of the presents I make are then sent abroad to my family or friends who live far away. So... while I don't always quite follow this rule, I usually try and come up with treats that will survive the trip and which are on the light side so that I don't have to give up an arm and a leg on postage. :-) 

This little present for a friend in Denmark definitely fitted the rule: definitely light and not one bit fragile. I decorated the tags of a few teabags of my favourite tea with bright colours and pretty patterns, wrapped them in a nice box and *hop* in the mail!

Graphic pillows

On our wedding day we were presented with a big and beautiful folder filled with amazing creations from all our guests; each and everyone of them had put together something on the theme of cows and kangaroos (I'm Swiss, hence the cows and... Mart's Australian so... there you go! :-)) 

There were collages, photos, cards, poems... someone even bought us a cow in a charity and put the certificate in the folder. So many beautiful, fun and thoughtful pieces from everyone.

My mum and my brother actually designed a special fabric for us, which they sent us a few meters of when we got back to the Netherlands. I love it and decided to make pillows with a tiny little touch of neon orange 'cause... I just couldn't resist!

Festive dinner

When we returned from our honeymoon Mart's mum had prepared us a beautiful dinner; such a sweet and thoughtful surprise! We couldn't have ended our amazing week in a better way.

Happy birthday Caitlin!

One of our friends in Denmark turned 6 recently... I made her a personalised mug. :-)

Stroll on the beach

On our way back down to Fremantle we stopped in Lancelin for a cup of coffee and a stroll on the beach... such a pretty place!
