Sometimes I get an email that makes me smile and when I saw the press release for the TimeCapsule my heart skipped a beat. I love the concept of keepsakes and really am somewhat of a nostalgic person. Do’t you just love it when you roam the attic and some old box pops up with trinkets and toys from your youth? Or when you read some old diaries and love letters? They take you away to another time and place. TimeCapsules is like that! It’s a collaboration between founder Anouk van der El, the award winning product designers of OfficeOriginair, creative collective Venour and graphic designers Mae Engelgeer and Marlous Sijm. Inside your TimeCapsule you find a booklet that you can decorate with handy question stickers, your answers and personal messages from friends and family. You can stick photos, drawings and sketches onto the pages in the booklet with magic tape. Also included are a handy manual, some graphic wrapping paper, a shiny golden sticker for your #1 memory and funky tags that you can hang onto personal items you want to include. Finally, you find a super strength sealing-strip to close the TimeCapsule with and keep all your goodies safe from curious wanderers for years to come! […]
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas? I spent my days with family and just relaxed, ate a lot of chocolate and sweets (whoops) and tried to get some things done of my never ending list… I was rather unsuccessful with that, but still have one more week before I have to go back to work, so maybe next week will be my most productive… I promised you a smashing giveaway and here it is! Maybe some of you read the decor8 blog, I have been a fan for a while now. I love Holly’s blog and work, I think she’s an amazing blogqueen. I really would like to do a real-live workshop and meet her and when I read she recently held one in her home city Hannover, I was of course intrigued. It seemed like such a nice get together with amazing other bloggers and really educating as well. I would love to go next time! I have to confess the goody bag filled with sponsor goodies Holly gave her students made me drool and even slightly impaired my speech for a while… It was AMAZING! I especially loved the Alphabet Bags and could not get over […]
Everyone present at the launch of the new digital magazine OhMarie! got a piñata with a gift. These gifts were meant as a little challenge; everyone should take a picture of them in their interior and then pass them through to the next blogger / person. Via Nina from Paper Stories I received five little lace bobbin utensils (kantklosjes). For a long time I just stared at them wondering what to do with them. Nina made such a beautiful pure photo of them and their first owner Monique also did a great job, with adding some nice images of the craft. I just saw ribbons every time I looked at them, I mean lace and ribbons right? And I wanted to hang them in my Christmas tree. But since I don’t have one yet I had to improvise. If you would like to be the next person to receive these five little friends please let me know and I will send them to you!
