Every Tuesday on Bloesem kids we share a kids craft contributed by our lovely team of crafters. They have a craft for every occasion, like Mother's Day this Sunday for instance! We think it's a fun way to start off the week. So we thought it would do the same on Bloesem living as well. If you haven't already seen some of Heju's craft projects floating around on the internet, then you need to get on that right now. We know many people who prefer to just buy something rather then make it for fear of making a mess or things going wrong.
Heju crafts are simple enough to follow without feeling like you are going to create a monster. You can see a whole selection of colourful and fun DIY projects for home accessories and decor in their craft archives. These faux ceramic pots in particular is our favourite and we are definitely going to try to recreate them.. they would be lovely around the house.

Let's start sending out those Christmas cards ...or better start making your own and then start sending them! Our friends from the Netherlands Eefje and Maike who run the wonderful website MoodKids designed a set of stitch-it-yourself cards for Bloesem. There's 3 designs to choose from and we love them all. Pick any color thread and start stitching for a personalized mail. Gold thread would be our pick too!
Download MoodKids' template for Bloesem -Stitch it Christmas Cards here.
Enjoy! and have a merry Holiday!

It was over at Le Train Fantome's blog that I read about Knots pop up shop in London last weekend ... oh how I wish I could have stopped by .. would have been so easy to do some early Christmas shopping. But a bit more research online brought me to this link ... and voila ... all the products that I like so much are available right here.
I am deeply in love with the pouches by Hermine van Dijk, but wouldn't say no to any of the cute ceramics by Mamzelle Titoo and the gorgeous handmade mobiles from Renilde de Peuter from at swim two-birds .......... [READ MORE]
Alessandra from La Casita founded Knots ... a group of 5 artists who all share Alessandra's passion for knitting, sewing, crochet, anything that involves the process of knotting.

While I am preparing a new post about my trip to NY last week I thought you probably be happy with seeing these beautiful embroidered potholders
by Karen Barbé... I have been away from my desktop for almost 8 weeks and it is good to be back and find my 'top sites' in safari ... Karen's blog
definitely is one of them.
are hand-embroidered with wool and backed with organic cotton. and I agree with Karen ... your kitchen would be so happy with one of these!
