A few days ago I showed you a few of my favorite macrame wall art pieces on Etsy. I also told you that I would love to learn some macrame. Well, I found some great 70’s craft books at the thrift store! Oh, I love those old fashioned books…

The first book (the orange one) features LOTS of different crafts. Macrame is just one of them. But it was the first one I found and I love all the inspiration I get out of this book. I’m definitely going to look for more vintage craft books in the thrift stores from now one!

I didn’t had the time to really read the books at the thrift store, so I just took a quick look inside and decide based on that if I took the books home or not. The second book had because of that a little surprise. It looked if halfway the book there was a complete second book about macrame. It had it’s own front page, it’s own table of contents and so on. There are many tutorials on the macrame basics plus some great projects (like the wall hanging above). I love this book the most of the two!

Don’t you just love those old fashioned pictures and crafts?Β XO Wilma

DIY – Printable fox corner bookmark

DIY - Printable fox corner bookmark

I love the cuteness and color of foxes. I know, I know, they aren’t that cute in real life. But in print or fabric they are super cute. Today I want to share a cute printable fox corner bookmark with you. Perfect for children books but why not for your own books? It makes even the most boring things look cuter. Not that my book really needed it because I looooove that cacti print!

The template I designed is really easy to work with. Just cut it out and use a little bit of glue to secure it. It can’t get much easier, doesn’t it?

Time for a change – New blog design

New blog design

I felt it was time for a change. Time for a new blog design. I wasn’t completely happy with my old design and I thought I really needed something that would look professional, fun and colorful all at the same time. I have So Many Ideas for new blog posts. You have no idea. I thought: a new start needs a new design.

What do you think? XO Wilma

I never thought I would say this, but I really love macrame wall art. Not all off the wall hangings are my taste but there are a lot of them out there that I really, really like. So today I want to share a few of my favorite macrame wall hangings from Etsy with you! These are just amazing and make me want to learn how to make one myself! Would make a great DIY project, don’t you think so?

I’m usually not a big fan of skulls, but that macrame skull piece (number 2) is absolutely amazing! Which one is your favorite? XO Wilma
