Fabric paintings

With the new fabrics I bought last week at the Fresh Squeezed Fabrics's shop on Etsy I've made these tree cute paintings.

They're very easy to make; just cut out a piece of fabric that's the same size as the glass, glue it on a piece of paper with the same size and put it in the frame behind the glass. (I bought the wooden frames at Hema.) Now you have a cute, cheap and d.i.y. frame. You can match the fabric with your interior and easily change the fabric when you get borde with it.

I choose three different green fabrics that matches my green curtains in the bedroom. The wallpaper is like a soft tree bark structure from National Geographic.

Good luck with making your paintings and don't forget to show some pictures.

Lot's of new stuff in my shop

Yesterday we had a nice day at the craft fair (Bazar Bizar, Rotterdam). We = me and my friend Helga (Hellie's World, soon online). We had luck with the weather, the prospect wasn't very good for yesterday. A lot of rain and thunder they had predict, but fortunatly the sun had shined the whole day and there was not one raindrop. Unfortunatly there wasn't a lot of public at the fair, most friends from sellers, but we've sold nice. I'll post some pictures later this week.

Before the fair I had made a lot of new products to sell there and now I got a lot left. So today I've been taking pictures of them and put them in my webshop www.essies.net and my Dawanda shop. There are a few new designs like: baby shoes, napkin scales and coasters.

Featured @ Hip+Hot website

Today I'll write in Dutch, sorry for people who don't understand it.
Vandaag doen we deze blog maar in het Nederlands.

Judith de eigenaresse van de Hip+Hot website heeft een leuk artikel over mijn website geschreven, tevens zijn er een aantal product foto's te zien. Ik ben super blij met deze 'promotie' niet alleen omdat ik op deze manier meer bekendheid krijg. Maar ook omdat ik de Hip+Hot website super leuk vind. Je kunt er een hoop websites met mooie spulletjes vinden, veelal handgemaakt. En ook staan er een hoop kortingsacties, prijsvragen en mail-en-win acties op de site.

Tevens staat er een kortings code bij het artikel die je in kan vulleen wanneer je een product bij Essie's koopt. Met deze code krijg je 15% korting op je aankoop (m.u.v. de verzendkosten). Dus zeker de moeite waard om een kijkje te nemen.
