hello friends
I hope you had a fabulous weekend, the big big craft show is now over - I am overwhelmed by all the love we received from all of you - we wouldn't of had a successful show without your support, thank you so so very much.

starting today life is back to normal, normal for us is daily production, brainstorming new products and new designs, there is so much in store in the new year and I am bursting at the seams with so much giddiness and I hope to be able to share them soon.  both online shops will be filled back in the coming days - some things have already made there way back, a few limited scarves in the shop (I won't make these ones till next year, new scarf designs being developed) and I still have some paper and fabric calendars left - as soon as the holidays approach these calendars will not be remade and these editions will be closed.

we ended our weekend with geninne's amazing workshop, I think the participants would agree that geninne is one pretty awesome lady! - she is the kind of person you meet and you feel like you've been friends for a long time, above are some pics from the workshop.

have a great start to your week! xxa


  1. So glad the show worked so well, my friend, you entirely deserve it !
    And glad to read that Geninne's workshop was a blast as well, how could have it been otherwise ?!

  2. I am always in awe of your energy Arounna and wish that I had the same!
    Great to hear that you have new ideas buzzing around - looking forward to seeing them.

  3. Ha, nice to see some pics of the workshop, and those snacks are really Dutch! Cheese, sausage and "stroopwafel", fun!

  4. I wish all three of you - you, margie, and geninne - could come to the Land of Enchantment and do a fabulous several day workshop, each sharing their specialty. I so long to be able to connect in person with each of you.

    In the meantime, I am so thrilled to be able to see you vicariously through each of your blogs.

    Congrats on the success of the show and the workshop! Looking forward to seeing your new ideas. Isn't it great when they just start to buzz?

  5. You are the best wirkshop host in the whole wide world nd the sweetest friend one could ever have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3
