Being random

I don't know about you, but I have these bulging fat folders, spilling
with paintings and writings and little illustrations. I also found 
quite a large amount of 'strip' illustrations that were made with the
intention to go on a cotton tape { but for whatever reason never were }
When I re-open my shop in the Spring I will have a much smaller selection
of cotton tapes available again, although I am doing it much differently
this time around. It is not just going to be cotton tapes. 
There is so much more coming!
I am at that stage where I am translating all my creative plans into action,
and orders for certain supplies have been made. 
All I can say is that I am soooo messy in my 'to-do'-note-books.
My goodness. I must be so random, you know. The way I just
jot things down { and expect myself to understand what I meant! } 

I am being random again.
Time for a tea, I think

Oh and not too happy with the new header either,
I have a plan to change it again, but my brain is still processing it.


  1. Ik vind je nieuwe heather erg leuk, maar ik ken het ik wissel ook regelmatig (altijd weer een ander en misschien Beter idee. Wat vervelend dat getob met je gezondheid, ik hoop dat je snel weet hoe het komt en nog meer wat je er aan kunt doen!
    Veel plezier met al je plannen..

  2. I rather like the header, Lilla. And I really like the bird images in the bottom picture.

    I have stacks and stacks of random odds and ends floating about everywhere. It's like the creative side of my brain explodes all over my studio sometimes. Organising it is half the art, I think!! x

  3. I like your new header, it's fresh!

    My head is full of ideas too, but no time to make them come to life, sigh....
    I am very curious for your ne line.....

  4. oh what i would give for half your skill with the paintbrush....

  5. Ik vind hem ook mooi maar je moet er zelf natuurlijk ook happy mee zijn :-)
    De rest van de illustraties zijn ook leuk zeg! Vooral de foto link:-) jeeee ik ben trouwens bezoeker 88888 grappig nummer ;-)

    Fijne dag!

  6. at least you have to-do notebooks,lol...i don't even have a list most of the time ;) and my youngest one just took off with the binder i was going to use to get organized!

  7. De zorgen van een ondernemer - en tegelijkertijd ook het plezier én de vruchten als de onderneming loopt! Pff... tell me about it. Succes met het afstrepen op je lijstjes, 't komt goed!

  12. I'm looking forward to hear more about your new tapes,

    And I love birds!

  13. Hello there,

    Firstly 'Happy New Year' Anna. I love your birds and I am looking forward to your shop. I truly LOVE, LOVE my custom tape. Also, I use to keep my 'ideas' on bits of paper all over the house... My New Years resolution is to have an 'Inspiration Jar' (glass jar with lid). I will jot down all the great things I think of on coloured bits of paper and throw them into the jar. It will look bright and cheerful AND I'll be able to find them !!!!

    Keep creating, I love your blog.


  14. Yey for the randomness. I always believe it's good to be! xm

  15. Beautiful work and lovely to hear the shop will open again...can't wait to see it! I think creative folks can be bursting with ideas and's a good thing, right? Love your artwork, it's beautiful!

  18. Ooooh I am looking forward to your shop re-opening. I've only recently discovered your blog and was sad to find your shop was closed - I love your cotton tapes and your illustrations.

  19. I love that stage when the creative plans start translating into action! It's like a shaken bottle of soda that burst out all it's glorious bubbles and liquid.

    Looking forward to see all your creations!
