New This Week: Skulls, Cherries, Anchors, Mushrooms & More


I have been a busy little lady ever since I came back from Berlin! I added all of this to the shop. As always, you can find them on, DaWanda and Etsy.

I have also been doing some more work on my wholesale site. It really should be up soon now!

Does any of you girls sell on consignment? I have gotten two request for this earlier this week, but I don't really know if I should do it. Maybe I don't have enough inventory to do it. I have a lot (my Etsy shop is getting close to 200 items!), but I don't have more than one of a lot of those. What are your experiences with consignment? And how much of the profits does the shop gets to keep?

Tizzalicious in "Die Burger"

I was interviewed for a South African newspaper called "Die Burger" last month. I tried to not get too excited about it, in case it wouldn't get published, so I didn't mention it before. But here it is!!!!!

Tizzalicious in "Die Burger" Newspaper!

I'm squeeing about it like there's no tomorrow.

The article in in Afrikaans, which is kind of like Dutch written by a 3 year old, so I can understand most of it. It's too hard to make a complete translation though, but it's about how to make crafting more popular amongst kids and young people, and about buying handmade in places like Etsy and DaWanda.

It has a quote from me about why it's nice to make your own things, and it says I have a shop on Etsy & DaWanda and my own shop at Plus one of my pictures!!! In the web version of the article (here), the credits for the picture are the wrong ones, and my quote isn't there, so I was a little bummed when I saw that. I was worried it would be like that in the printed version too, but as you can see, it's right there. Phew!

Am I an international celebrity now?

Back From Berlin!

TV Tower

Hi everyone! I am back from Berlin! I had a fantastic time. It was so nice to be able to relax and not worry about a thing. No promoting the shop, no groceries, no runs to the post office, no cleaning,...nothing at all.

World Clock

East Side Gallery

We saw a lot, walked a lot, and just had a lot of fun in general. I can definitely recommend a trip to Berlin to everyone!

Driving a Trabi

Here's me pretending to drive a Trabi in the DDR museum. I don't think I was a very good driver :(

Movie Recommendations?

The boyfriend and I just signed up for an online movie rental place (like Netflix in the US). I am super excited about it, as I love watching movies, but we have grown bored of the ones we own, and don't have enough money to keep buying more.

Now I need your help choosing which movies to get! Please recommend any of your favourite movies, in any genre! If you would like to know what kind of movies we usually watch, just look at some of my previous Monthly Stats entries.

Wholesale & Strange Requests

The past week I have been working on a wholesale area on I have gotten quite a few wholesale requests yesterday, so I figured it was time to start working on that.

Heart Magnets
Heart Magnets Available at :: Etsy :: DaWanda

This morning I found a new wholesale request in my mailbox. Could I make 10.000, yes 10.000 of my heart magnets? Ten thousand? I love the request, but yikes, I am not running a sweatshop here!

What's the weirdest question or request you have ever gotte? This doesn't have to be business related of course! For me, it must have been someone who asked me if Amsterdam is real. "Is Amsterdam real, or is it made up?". Uhmmmmm.
