Begin to look like Christmas...

Hello Lovelies, 
last year I decorated a bit late for Christmas.
This year I`m done and it isn`t even the 1st December;)
Wanna see?
It is a bit like every year.
I don`t follow a trend or something...
Just the ornaments we have on hand.
Here is my living room this Christmas.

I love how my entry door looks right now!
Love the trim and lion head.

I just did the traditional colors again this year, red, gold and green. 
And I am happy with it;)
I will hand some DIY Christmas art this year too, stay tuned for that;)

I wish you a happy & peaceful 1st Advent!
Love & hugs

Love Target and decorating with items you already have! Or shop your home!

Hello Lovelies,

I wanted to show you this video first and than
what I made with my home shopped items;)

Isn`t she gorgeous? Don`t you all love her? And her amazing blog?

This inspired me and I ran through my house and grabbed all the items I had
to make a pretty centerpiece myself!
Because my table looks like this most of the time;)

I was so excited that I totally forgot to make a photo of the huge amount on stuff
I wanted to use.
But you`ll get the final picture.
I had this table runner for a long time, it was still sealed.
And now his time has come;)

Soo here are the finished photos, I used a lot of white candles, many greens, 
walnuts, a lantern, some glass domes, branches and glass, a lot of glass.
But see yourself;)

And with all the candles lit...

Coby is photo bombing my post;) See him on the chair?

And the last one from above;)

You don`t always have to buy new stuff to get a nice look.
It is so cozy with all the candles and the fireplace on...
I love it, maybe I`ll change it up a bit and show you how it turned out.
What do you think?
Do you like my centerpiece?
Suggestions are always welcome;)

How to; DIY photography Lightbox under 5€!

Helo Lovelies, 
I don`t know about you, but I always wondered how I may 
do some pretty product photography on my own.
To look them more professional.
So I searched youtube and found some amazing tutorials;)

I think they are more accurate to what I did, but anyways I wanted to share 
mine with you;)

What you need to build your own Lightbox is;

A box, tissue paper, white cardboard, tape, and a knife.
It happened that I had all of these things at home,
the cardboard is about 2,50 and the tissue paper about 5,95 a whole package.
I had it left from this project here.

So what you simply need to do is cut three windows in your box.
cover it with tissue paper, and lay the cardboard inside your box.
and you are done;)

Do you see the holes in this box?
They kinda look like faces... facet that don`t want to be cut out...

When that is done you end up with this and tape your tissue paper down.

Now let your cardboard slide inside the box without creating any sharp edges and tape it don to the corners of your box.

You can cut the excess cardboard, which I did later and find some lights.
and shoot away;)

This is the finished product and here are my first shot...

I have to experiment with the lighting but for the first time, not bad;)
What do you think?

Studio mess...

Hello my lovelies, 
as you may have noticed I posted on Facebook an ad for 
selling my former craft table/ paint table/ pool billiard table.
So, it was a success, the guy who bought it will pick em up tomorrow morning.
Now I have a problem, I don`t have a table;/

A new project is knocking on my door, to build a new craft table...
These are the table less photos right here.

The huge board you see in the back was the actual table top.
I am planning to use it again.

I placed my sketching table back on it`s spot.

And got rid of some unused stuff.

Looks kind of messy right now.
And I have no space to work on my huge paintings.
So i moved back upstairs to my living room.
And messed them up too;)
No, not really, just some paint and canvases right there.
Wanna see what I am working on right now?
Okay, here I am in the whole glory...
Please notice the pretty slippers;)

Here I am painting clouds with a sponge.
My client found this inspirational picture online.
She wanted an similar cloud painting, so I got to it.

Not finished yet, as you can obviously see...
But it`s coming;)
Here is some progress on 
"The little Wicking"

And I am kinda in the vintage signs thing lately.
I`ve always loved the hand lettered vintage signs.
But never tried to paint them myself, until lately.
So I made two "vintage" canvases for my bathroom.

I really don`t like my bathroom.
It has it`s dated 90s tile, not my style, but we haven`t the money, time or really the passion to renovate this room.
maybe next year, we will see,
Here is the prettiest photo of this room, thanks to the kitty in the bathtub;)

Okay here are the two paintings.

And hanging on the wall.

What do you think?
Do you like this kind of art?
Do you wanna see more of this art?
Any suggestions?
Just write it down below!
