How to make doodle Easter eggs

Doodling really isn’t hard to do, even if you are not a great drawer. Here are a few tips to create great looking doodle Easter eggs:

1. Choose two or three basic shapes. As you can see my egg is mainly filled with the image of one flower and a leaf repeated all over the egg. If you choose just a few basic shapes your design will get a consistent look.

2. Fill up the egg enthirely with the basic shapes. Don’t worry about holes just yet.

3. Now tackle the holes in your design. Again; just choose one or two ways to fill the openings. I doodled swirls and dots.Β In the end your egg will have just 4 or 5 different shapes drawn on it. This gives a consistent but really pretty look!

Now go grab an egg and start doodling! XO Wilma

I love floral dresses. I just feel so pretty in them! Plus they make me feel happy and relaxed. They remind me of summer and good times. This pretty floral bandeau dress is just 30 dollars. You say what?? I love to pair it with gold and white to add a little bit of glamour to it. Isn’t she pretty? XO Wilma

Etsy shop love - Wild and Free Designs

Etsy has so many great things to offer. With ‘Etsy shop love’ I want to show you some of my favorite Etsy shops. Every Saturday you will find a new shop that’s getting featured. Today it’s ‘Wild and Free Designs‘.

When I saw these amazing globes for the first time I was intrigued. I love the vintage globes and the typography is just amazing! My handwriting isn’t near as amazing as hers but it makes me wonder: can I do something like this myself? I think I’m going to try… I just have to! If not I might need to save some money for the real deal. These globes start at $215 excluding shipping. They are absolutely a real piece of art! XO Wilma


DIY – Face planter

DIY - Face planter tutorial

As you might know after my cress cups with a face DIY project, I love planters with a face on it. I thing it just gives every plant more personality! So today I want to share this little fellow with you. His name is Bob. OK, just kidding, I don’t actually give my planters names. But isn’t he cute? And I can change his ‘haircut’ as many times as I want. He doesn’t complain! This actually is a recycling project. For the base of this face planter I used a empty can!
