Junzo Terada

I found these cute sticky notes in NY. I use them everyday! Junzo Terada is the creator behind it. Like his style, forms and colours! Unfortunately I couldn't find a website for more information about Junzo. But of course on Google I did find more illustrations!





New little Flow present

Today I received the new Flow. Always a lovely moment. Again there were a few little presents in Flow magazine! A little make it yourself diary, stickers and some nice cards. I loved the little birds illustrations in the diary! Does anyone know who made this?

One day shop!

There is something funny going on at Haarlemmerdijk 41. During the week it's an empty store but every weekend something new and different pops up in this place. It's called One day shop. An empty office which you can rent during the weekend for one or two days. Great idea! Love to be a little shop for one day! Keep you posted... :-)



Mr. Drop

We just moved with HEMA to a big fresh new building. Really lovely! Everything looks fine and new. And since this big day we have a little new friend... Mr. Drop! A very little black key that helps us with the entrance of the building or for example with printing. Great and maybe even innovative but oh so perfect to lose it all the time. This morning a friend and I made a happy bracelet for Mr. Drop. Hopefully I won't lose him anymore! You can order a bracelet too if you are interested, just mail me :-)!

Pompon

I believe Pompon is the best flower store in Amsterdam! Here you'll find beautiful flowers! Their window displays are so lovely... Always decorated with big colourful flowers of the highest quality. The store is located just around my corner and nearby popular ' Noordermarkt'.

Stickers & Stuff

There are so many nice blogs at this moment! It's almost impossible to follow all these wonderful and inspirational sites! So once in while I visit some of them. Always amazed what I see. For example Stickers and Stuff. They show us every day nice book illustrations, packaging and more... For me, as a print designer,  a great inspiration to make nice prints myself too. I found this on their site! Lovely old prints from a book named Pistache et Dame Tartine. It's made without a computer, illustrator or what so ever. Nice!

Etsy & N.E.E.T. magazine

Have you ever heard about Etsy? Etsy is the online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. They connect buyers with independent creators and shop owners to find the very best in handmade, vintage and supplies from all over the world. And all for a fair price. Art, accessories, fashion, paper goods...name it and you will find it. I love Etsy! Every time it's a surprise when I visit the website. Find out yourself, maybe you finally find a nice piece of art for your livingroom.



Sometimes it can be a little bit hard to find what you want, because there is so much choice. N.E.E.T.magazine , an online magazine, can help you for sure. The first of its kind - online, free and packed with everyone from a crafter creating from their kitchen table, to a fashion design graduate straight out of college. No famous brands and everything you see, you can buy on internet. Love this concept.

Favela painting

I think creative projects like Favela Painting are so great! They make people happy by painting art on buildings, stairs or walls in the favelas. Such a nice idea! I know for sure it brings smiles on people's faces even though there is nothing to smile for... This is their latest project on Praça Cantão in Santa Marta a favela in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. You can find them on facebook as well for more information.

Mini cupcakes love

Cupcakes are hip. You find them in all kinds of sizes and flavours at the moment. I saw a few cupcake bakeries in NY. One of them was Baked by Melissa. A very little one window shop in the middle of Soho with a very long line in front of it. NY loves Melissa! These cupcakes are very little, so you can try all of them.



A year in Japan

I am a big fan of Japan. I visited this amazing beautiful, perfect & funny country a few times. The perfect businessman with his cartoon key hangers. The well organised and fine tea-ceremonies. The Japanese traditions and the great sushi... loved it and still do! Kate T Willamson lived in Kyoto for a year and I think she looked very well at the Japanese people and their traditions. Kate makes lovely illustrations and to me it brings back memories when seeing them! Look at her website if you are interested in more illustrations. Or buy the book like I did!
