Hello Zakka with Hello Sandwich

Hi everybody! This week I bought just the cutest craft book I’ve ever read, so I want to share it with you. It’s the german edition of “Hello Zakka” by Japan based designer Ebony Bizys aka Hello Sandwich. If you like the cuteness of japanese culture, you’ll find lots and lots and lots of craft projects in that book. I immediate fell for it. Hello Sandwich shows us how to brighten up our days and surrounds us with cute and small things that we all adore so much. Some of the projects will take an afternoon, some are finished in no time – but they’re all really easy.

The first thing I tried was the pompon bracelet from page 46. I had so much fun yesterday evening, making these pompons as I did last time when I was a little girl. The finished bracelet is just the cutest thing! I’ll definitely will craft my way through that book the next weeks. If you’ll do the same: Have fun! Yay!




Book Galore!

Hi everybody! Today I have big news and I can hardly describe how excited I am: My first book is out now! Yay! It’s called “StickLust – 33 Stickprojekte auf Papier, Pappe, Holz und mehr” and it’s published at frechverlag in the TOPP series. It’s a big publisher here in Germany for all things crafting and I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to make this book.

Embroidery was one of my early childhood crafting passions. I wanted to create something modern and unusual and so I decided to stitch on almost anything that crossed my way. There surely are some surprises in  the book. Yay! As soon as my deposit copies arrive (I hope it’s today!) I’ll show you some more pics from the inside here on my blog. So stay tuned 😀

I hope that many people will have fun with this book. It’s really special to me and I put a lot of work and love in it during the last months. I now have to let it go and see what other crafters make out of it. I would love it, if everybody who has created a project from this book would share it with me. I’m really curious how others are inspired by it. Have fun and happy moments!
