My craft room

I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I rearranged my craft room (actually it's more like a craft corner). So I just wanted to show you an instagram shot of what it looks like now. It's a bit more messy most of the time. But i'm in love with this long table, mini drawer and an extra shelf. The space I had before was probably ten times smaller. I have no idea how I managed to work with that.

Autumn-inspired notebooks

I've been making loads of tiny hand-bound notebooks lately. I love the process and I love the way they look and feel. There are several notebooks available for sale in my Etsy shop now.

These two are the ones I'm especially happy with. Basically I used the same idea I had for the Banana Pill t-shirts and tote bags a year ago. I collected oak and maple leaves outside my house, painted them with watercolor and transferred the paint straight to the carton covers. The paint didn't transfer as well as it did on fabric, so I had to add some color with a brush.

I'm totally in love with these leaves! I wanna try with other kinds. The only problem is that I don't know the names for all the trees.

Long time no see...

I've been away for way too long...

First I've been busy with work. Then summer came, which is for me the hardest time to stay organized. Then my work ended and I had all this free time on my hands so I spent it rearranging my craft room and updating my Etsy shop with new design, new photos and new items. I still have some more items waiting to be added as well as some new ideas in my head. I'm so happy to finally have time for this and I hope to get back to regular blogging as well.

Here are my crochet baskets that are now available for sale in my Etsy shop.
