Stoffenspektakel Fabric Purchases (Part 1)

Fabric Purchases at Stoffenspektakel

A few weeks ago a big fabric fair called "Stoffenspektakel" was held in my hometown. Needless to say, I went there. My mom came with me, and we had such a good time!

Fabric Purchases at Stoffenspektakel

At first I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of fabric, and due to not being able to decide what to buy, I didn't buy anything for the first hour. Once I started buying, I kept on buying though, and I left with a huge bag filled with fantastic fabrics. The fabrics in these pictures aren't even half of what I bought!

Of course I couldn't go home without some Matryoshka fabric!

I brought my camera to take pictures at the fair, but I was so in awe of all the fabric that I completely forgot to take pictures. Here are some from the Stoffenspektakel website, so you can have an idea of the size of it all...





Like I said, I bought even more than just these fabrics, I will show you the rest later this week!

The Dreamy Blog Topic To Post List


My mind is often filled with things to blog about, but then when I actually sit down with my laptop, ready to post, I can't remember anything to write. I sometimes scribble ideas down on random papers I always lose, but I found something much better now. This free printable "Dreamy Blog Topic To post List" by Vale Design. I love it! It's so useful. You can download your free PDF here.

The image above shows the "Dreamy Blog Topic To Post List", and "The Freaking Never Ending To Do List". Unfortunately, the To Do list is not available for download anymore, but you can purchase it as a notepad at Vale Design Paper Goods Shop on Etsy.

Tizzalicious Make-Over

I have been a member of Link Referral for a while, a site where other members can review your site. I am happy to say that all the reviews I have gotten are great, but there are two things a few people brought up that could do with some changes: The dark pink text on a light pink backtround was hard to read on some peoples screens, and they would like the pictures to be larger.

As we say in Holland: "De klant is koning" (The customer is king), so I decided to change these things.

It was a lot of work, and I spent all of my free time on it lately, thinking I would never be done. But this weekend I finally finished! The new versions of both Tizzalicious.com and Tizzalicious.nl, and the wholesale area of the site, are now online.

Tizzalicious Make-Over

So what's new?

♥ A new zoom in system for the images. They now get bigger, and load faster.
♥ The products are now sorted from new to old, instead of the other way around.
♥ Navigation buttons on the left hand side, instead of all mixed up in the header
♥ A white background to make the text stand out more

I am very happy with how it turned out, especially the tool to zoom in. It looks fantastic.

If you have visited the new site, please tell me what you think!
