Funny laundry bag


laundry-bag-01
The ellipse of my previous post was for the bottom of this laundry bag.

Our second bird has left the nest :cry:
Fortunately our daughter is not far but her first year of medical studies doesn’t allow her time for daily stains. This laundry bag is full of what I have to wash (I don’t see her when I go to her student room).

I did not resist and added a humoristic deco ;-)

The website has a new look


The website has a new look
My tendinitis still forced me to be craft inactive, it gives me time to relook my website.
I became a left-handed computer mouse pro!

Simple design, less flashy, I surprised myself to become wiser ;-)

Tell me what you think about this new style…

How to draw an ellipse


How to draw an ellipse (step 01)
I did not resigned, but since five months a nasty (and persistant) right thumb tendinitis prevents me to make any manual activity (and quite anything else as I’m right handed …).

Few days ago I completed a project, but since then I am again in a phase of forced inactivity :cry:

Anyway, for this project I needed an ellipse!

Laptop decal (chapter 5)


time-decal
A while ago, I bougth metallic vinyl which was not expansive (more than classic vinyl but it was a moderate price).

On my black laptop, it has a very “chic” effect.
The quote “If only I had as much time as ideas” is truly adapted to my situation : by wanting to create too much I’m finishing nothing :-?

As usual, please comment for receiving the .sst (Silhouette Studio file) or fonts used (all free).

Laptop and coffee maker decals

Results of a Cameo morning!
I had my last laptop decal for 8 months and need (want!) to change it

“I’m not messy, I’m creative”

And after having created a very useful storage drawer for it I wanted to customize our Lattissima.

As usual, you can ask me the fonts used (all are free) or my Silhouette Studio files.

Storage drawer for coffee capsules


diy-capsules-drawer-01
We bought a Nespresso coffee maker. Compared to our old filter machise, the coffee taste is much better. But capsules storage quickly becomes a hell!

Existing storages are attractive but not really practical : either you opt for a box (too bad, aroma you want is under all other) either you opt for a rack that takes a lot of space (and I do not want to exhibit my capsules).

A drawer which has my maker size, that is the solution!

Love clover family names cushion


family-cushion-01
My friend Marie is a great person! Generous and caring she is also a very cheerful person who has been an invaluable support in difficult times.

She appreciates the value of “handmade done with love” and for Christmas I like to create for her a customized gift.
This year, her daughter left for her studies, with this cushion I wanted her to be able to hug all her loving family.
