Kasa's ♥ for owls, knitting and paper


Today I fell in love with Kasa, who I believe is an American lady living in Köln in Germany. She ♥ patterns, paper and all the beautiful things you can create with it and started bookbinding in her freetime in 2007. I belive she has a passion for owls too :) Would you like to knit this super cute Owl sweater too...click here for the pattern only 3.50usd. Kasa also authors the blog paperama....unbelievable how talented this crafty lady is. The online shop and German blog here.

Ribbons and Crafts from Munich


Some bright and colurful attention for a sponsor of Bloesem today. The lovely Diana from Ribbons and Crafts has added so many new things to her shop that you might like to see. Diana is a Dutch girl living in Germany's Bavaria. She has a weakness for felt, fabric and all things crafty, that why she probably authors two blogs, caught crafting and oh my bag. I really like the Girls Garland that Diana made herself and sells in her shop. You can use the garland to hang small notes, images or something made by your child. 

A while back Diana wrote a lovely report for Bloesem about her hometown Munich...

DIY customized table ware from 101-woonideeen


I was scrolling online through the February issue of 101-woonideeen, one of the best DIY and interior magazines from the Netherlands at the moment, when I spotted these plates, I send Anne-Marie from 101-woonideeen an email asking her whether I could share this DIY project with you ... yes of course she said, so here you go...make your own customized art plates!

What you need::
*Used or vintage plates with a floral pattern
* Adhesive foil, white mat 
*Spray Paint  *Templates   *Scissors *Cutter
How to make::
Prepare the baking plates by making them grease-free. Trace your pattern or template on the adhesive foil
Cut it out from the adhesive foil and paste it onto your plate. Make sure you rub the adhesive foil securely, there should be no paint running under. Spray a thin layer of paint on your plate, it is fun when the original pattern of your plate shines thorugh the paint. Allow the plates to dry and then carefully pull the adhesive foil.

Thanks 101-woonideeen.........

{The templates used for the plates are from the book Stencil 101 Decor by Ed Roth}
