Ice Cream Necklaces

My creation

It is way too hot to write anything constructive today, so I decided to just show you some of my summery ice cream creations! I have just added all of them to my DaWanda shop and they are all available on and Etsy as well.

I have spent this crazy hot day running around the city. I went to the post office, the pharmacy, took the tram (hot, gross & sticky) to Utrecht, got my hair cut there, did a bit of shopping, did groceries, and came back home. That's way too much for a day like this, so the rest of the day is going to be filled with cold drinks and relaxing.

What is your favourite thing to do on a hot day?

DaWanda Wednesday : Revoluzzza

I can't believe I talked about DaWanda in my previous post, but forgot about the fact that today is Wednesday, DaWanda Wednesday that is! So it's time to show you another one of my favourite DaWanda shops.

Today I have chosen Revoluzzza, who's blog and and shop I've admired for a while. I think her work sells out quite fast, so I decided to show you some pictures of her work, rather than items that are available in the Revoluzzza shop right now.

Find some of these cuties here on DaWanda or visit Revoluzzza at Flickr!

DaWanda Trends: Most Popular Member

The weather is gorgeous here. The sky is blue and it's really warm. I am sitting here enjoying some delicious cherries, and I'm having a hard time getting some work done. I'd prefer to just laze around outside! I think it's time to move the laptop outside with me.

79/365 Cherries

In other news: Squeeeee! I found myself in the number 1 spot of the "Most Popular Member" list on DaWanda last night!

DaWanda Trends

I'm so glad I decided to start a shop there. My first 2 weeks there have been a lot more successful than my first 2 weeks on Etsy.

Useful Cuteness

By now most of you will probably know that I love buying random cuteness. It's always good to find something that's both cute and useful, so you have an excuse to actually buy it.

Fly Swatter Cuteness

The boyfriend was complaining about not having a fly swatter the other day, when a bee was flying around our place. When I went shopping the other day I found this one in a dollar store. How could I resist?

Dishwashing Brush Doll

And some more useful cuteness! This diswashing brush by Vigar was a gift from my friend Nina. It's almost too cute to use!

I have a lot more useful cuteness here, so More will be coming some other time!

Owl Tattoos From Vinyl Wall Art!

Owl Tattoos From Vinyl Wall Art!

Holly from Vinyl Wall Art held a contest on her blog the other day, to win these cute temporary tattoos. I didn't win them, but she sent me some anyway, isn't that sweet?

I am absolutely in love with her work. I will definitely buy some of her wall decals whenever I will move out of here!

An Apple For Every Outfit

An Apple For Every Outfit
Apple Studs Earrings Available At: :: Etsy :: DaWanda

If the dress fits earring looks good, buy one in every color!

Well, that's certainly possible with my apple stud earrings. One of my customers has actually bought about 4 of these. I wonder if she will buy the new red ones too?

Cute Birthday Mail

I got a very cute package in the mail the other day. My penpal Sarah from Sweden sent me a few belated birthday presents!

Oopsie Daisy Cards

One of the things she sent are these Oopsie Daisy Cards. Aren't they cute? She also sent lots of tea (yay for tea!), a Miso Pretty birthday card, and a whole bunch of really cute stickers.

More Gifts

I love Miso Pretty goodies. I wish I had tons of money so I could buy lots of it. For now I think I will have to make do with this card stuck on my magnet board!

And here's something else that made me happy, a pair of my apple stud earrings on Indie Parade!

DaWanda Wednesday: Zierstiche

Welcome to the very first DaWanda Wednesday post! DaWanda is a great market place for anything handmade. It's not very famous yet, and I feel like that has to change, as there are plenty of fantastic shops on there.

My first DaWanda Wednesday pick is Zierstiche from Germany. Her shop is filled with the most gorgeous items, and as you can see her presentation is absolutely fantastic.

At Zierstiche you will not only be able to find the cutest monster plush, but also wallets, greeting cards, fabric buttons and lots more!

Both SuperKawaiiMama and MyPaperCrane have tagged me to post 6 things that make me happy or that I love. So here I go!

1. Lazy Sundays
The Boyfriend and I turned boring Sunday into Lazy Sunday, which is basically doing nothing, having take-out for dinner, and wathing TV in our PJs all day.

2. Random Cuteness
I love finding random cute things. Cute graffiti, cute packaging, anything! Can you imagine the suprised look on my face when I opened a package of pads and found these inside? They almost make my periods fun!

111/365 Happy Period!

3. Shopping
I'm a real shopaholic. When I feel bad, a little shopping always cheers me up.

4. Solvej
Solvej is one of the mascottes of the Danish Railways. The boyfriend once gave me one as a suprise present, and I instantly fell in love.

5. The boyfriend himself!
We can't forget about him of course.

6. Summer & Summer
Summer is my happy month. Winter is bad, cold and wet, so every year in spring I am happy to see the sun again, and to be able to go out without freezing my ass off.

6/365 Picnic At Kastellet

I'm tagging everyone who wants to spread a little happiness!

Gift Certificates & New Look

I gave a bit of a new look this weekend. I added a search tool, and changed the layout a little.

After a request from a customer with a birthday coming up, I also added gift certificates! I love that Paypal has that feature. Does anyone else use them? And does anyone know if they will work on Etsy purchases that check out with Paypal as well?

I added some new goodies to the shop as well, like these adorable cupcake earrings!

First of all, I have some new items in the shop, like the bicycle necklace up here!

Birthday Shopping

Whale Shirt

Yesterday I dragged the boyfriend into town for some shopping! I had birthday money to spend on random cuteness, which I wanted to do before I spent it all on boring things like groceries.

Cuteness Shirt

I bought these two really cute shirts by Nümph. Aren't they adorable? I can't decide which one I like more. I also bought a really great Nümph dress, but I will have to make the straps on that one shorter before I can wear it and show you.

While we were in one of the little indie boutiques just outside the centre I suddenly spotted this:

Yummie Breakfast Key Chain

Heidi Kenney's Yummie Breakfast keychains! It must be nice for her to know they are available all the way on the other side of the big ocean too! I got pretty excited about it anyway!

Of course I had to buy one too! I was hoping for the milk carton, I don't know why, but I have this obsession with cute Milk Cartons, even though I absolutely hate milk. Maybe Blur's video for Coffee & TV has something to do with it?

Yummie Breakfast Key Chain

As you can see, I didn't get the milk carton, but this banana is an absolute cutie too! The boyfriend suggested to just buy some more to try and get a milk carton, but I wasn't sure if that would be very nice for the wallet.

If you would like one too, you can get them here at My Paper Crane (Heidi's shop), or at Kid Robot.

Wired Hearts

I made these earrings some time ago, and they are now finally available in the shop! After making the wire earrings I made for my mom last month, I got inspired to do some more with wire. I really like how they turned out, and I think I will be making more like this. What do you think?

Lollipop & Cupcake Necklace

Also new is this sweet lollipop and cupcake necklace! I sold one right away after listing it, but there are more avaible.

Thanks for the nice birthday wishes everyone! My mailbox was flooded with e-mails about comments on my blog, myspace, facebook, hyves,... Quite overwhelming, but really nice to see :)

Twenty Five Years Ago...

My First Birthday

Twenty-five years ago today I celebrated my first birthday. This means that today is my twenty-sixth!

I love my mom's sun glasses! And her hair too. When the word "retro" covers things from your youth, and fashion from when you were little is back, does that mean you're officially old?

New This Week!

I have some more shop news for you! Over the last few days I have added all the goodies above! You can find them at, Etsy and DaWanda!

Also new is this adorable polka dot apple ring! It's the first ring in my shop! More might come, depending on its popularity. It links to, but is also available here on Etsy of course.

In other, non-shop related news: It's my birthday tomorrow!

Lowered Prices!

I decided to lower the prices on all of my felt heart necklaces on, Etsy and DaWanda! They have been marked down $4 from $17.50 and $18.50 to only $13.50 and $14.50!

Talking about DaWanda, I have been adding more items there, so my shop there is starting to look a little stocked. I also got a message from Lani that I was on the front page again!

DaWanda Front Page Again!

Thanks for letting me know Lani! As you can see, I managed to catch a screenshot myself, but thank you for taking one too!
