Matching coffee.

28/04/2012

On saturday is my weekly day off, then I try not to think about all the deadlines I have to catch. My saturday ritual is making walks, drinking coffee & writing letters. R e l a x. A little while ago the Barista at Café Labath (in Ghent) made a cappuccino that matched my dress. I really like that a lot !

Flowers pop-up everywhere – my working area is growing – be amazed about pigeons

The next 2 month will be so busy for me with finishing all my work. So I think I will not have so much time to blog. But I try my best to post something every week. Hope you don’t mind if it takes me a little longer. Until soon … .

The previous two weeks were very busy, working on several projects at the same time and had important deadlines. So I didn’t had the time to take pictures and blogging. But I’m back, still with my mind with my projects, but I’m relaxed.

Today was such a lovely day, first time in more than 2 weeks that I could effort a day off.

° I did a book swap with Ward Zwart. I gave him a book about gardening and a few baby-plants, and he gave me his lovely ‘Mostly Cola’ book. (He’s incredible talented).
° I repotted my avocado’s, and putted 3 of my pits together in a pot. Hope it will transform into a giant tree.
° Went to my 2 favourite coffeebars in Antwerp, Normo and La Chascona, to drink some relax coffee.
° I’m wearing my blue dress. Found it a little while ago for 1 euro.
° Making a crochetwork for someone special.
° All my plants are growing so fast. Like this little baby-plant I’m making, look up here, when he still was a baby. Does someone know how the name of this plant ?

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Until soon.

Blue sparkles.

01/02/2012

A mix of blue things.
What you see:

– I’m doing some silkscreening these days. But this is just the start, it still needs more layers. More colours and some embroidery.
– A letter for Vibeke.
– The dress of my dreams, from Mina Perhonen. I’m wishing wishing wishing that it will be mine one day. Love it so much.
– A beautiful message that I found on a wall at the exhibition.
– Just discovered the beautiful music of Ben Howard. Love it.

Have a lovely evening, and enjoy the freezing cold. I can’t stop smiling, because this is my favourite weather. So cold, but sunny. Perfect !

Back to work.

24/01/2012

I feel good again. I wasn’t able to go further with my research, for 3 weeks. So now I have to catch up all the work, and that gives me a stressy-feeling, I really hope I’ll be able to finish some piece in 3 weeks. Because then they will be judged by some designers. oh God … I hate this feeling, and it always makes me feel sad when I’m stressed. My mom always say that I have to live like a snake, calm, in yourself, … . On this kind of moments I think a lot about that.

calm down, calm down

Actually I want to tell you a nice story. A few months ago I fell in love with a dress, ofcourse it was way to expensive. But I always went to the shop to have a look at the dress. Well, good news, during the sales I found the dress. And it wasn’t that expensive anymore. I’m a happy girl with a new dress.

Now, back to work.
