A Pintastic Week - 30.03.2014

Hi guys!

I hope everyone had a fantastic week! I know I had, it has been busy, but also super fun! On Wednesday I went to a lecture about the business behind fashion, and on Friday I attended my student's body gala. I finished my dress just in time - a lot of stress involved. Picture(s) will follow as soon as they are put online by the gala photographer (I forgot my Kodak - sad face). And maybe I'll do a shoot with it, along with my previous gala dress. I should really do that actually.

Anyway, it is the end of the week and so it is time for my weekly round-up!

1. Outfit from the Paule Ka Black Carpet Collection

2. A beautiful lacy Skater dress by Peneloping

3. Fashion illustrations by Hayden Williams on Miss Kris

4. This amazing DIY office desk on A Beautiful Mess

Good night!

A Pintastic Week - 23.03.2014


I hope everyone had a great weekend! I worked a lot on my evening gown, only five days remaining until the gala, and I still have to do the skirt. Fingers crossed, and as Tim Gunn says, 'make it work'!

In the mean time, I have also pinned a few things (or rather, a lot), and I'm sharing this weeks favourites.

1. This great outfit from Essentiel Antwerp

2. Mini citrus tarts on A Beautiful Mess

3. Another foodie moment, these Tiramisu cupcakes with raspberries (thank God for Google Translate!)

5. A simple, but clever card. I love how they put the hearts in a circle and have them overlap each other.

That's it for today, good night!

Lawnscaping challenge no. 78: clean and simple


Today I want to share the card I made for the Lawnscaping challenge.
This is the challenge:

I made this card for my grandfather's 80th birthday, and thought it perfectly met the challenge:

Have a great weekend!

A Pintastic Week - 16.03.2014

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd start a new series, in which I round up my favourite pins of the past week. It is also an attempt to blog more regularly, I hope I won't fail you here. So let's get to it!

1. A lovely card by Laura Bassen from Doublestick Heaven.

2. These cute Easter Egg Boxes on the Damask Love blog.

3. An amazing new pattern by By Hand London, the Flora dress (on my wishlist!!).

4. A tent made from scarves! I am already looking forward to summer... Unfortunately, I can only trace back to this pin, so if anyone knows the original source, please tell me!

That's it for this week, I hope you all had a great weekend!

Burdastyle 04/2014


I just bought the new Burdastyle issue, and I thought I'd share my two favourite silhouettes.

The first one is this fabulous jumpsuit. I love how clean it looks, they made a great fabric choice for this one!

I also fell in love with this maxi dress. It makes me long for summer days where I will be able to wear it - that is, if I will be able to whip this one up by then, I have a million things I want to make, haha.

Have a great weekend!
