Garlands made by Sjoesjoe & friends

My sweet friends helped me with making these garlands. It was a fun evening, kind of wedding edition of creatiecafe. I made a soup, bought some drinks and chocolates and in the meantime we talked about life & laughter :) For this you need a bunch of sweet friends and some nice fabrics. Cut the fabric in triangles, stitch 2 triangles on top of each other ( if you have a lock machine that's great ), fold the bias tape over the top edge and stitch it together. Easy peasy!

Fabric birds & butterflies

I came across this picture with birds and flowers made of fabric by Abigail Brown. Abigail produces her birds entirely by hand, in her studio in London. They are crafted from both new and reused material. Oh my, I like!

Little bridesmaid gift

Getting married, it's one of the few traditional and lovely special moments in life. To me it's all about celebrating love together with sweet friends and family all day long. I asked 5 special friends to be my bridesmaids. Last friday we had a cosy dinner together. I made this little gift to say thank you for being there.

Studio Sjoesjoe portfolio update

Studio Sjoesjoe is working on many different projects for brands and friends. I am so happy with my studio and it's going really well. Hope you like to see some of my designs & projects... some of them I can show you now, J!

* Wedding invitation: one of my best friends is getting married in June. I was so honoured to design their wedding invitation and save the date card. Are you getting married, moving to a new house, having a party or expecting little baby? I'd love to design a special announcement for you!

* Like Home: a company specialized in interior styling and sales advice asked me to design a brand new look & feel. Besides the logo, business cards and website ( under construction) I created a presentation about the company.

Fleximo: a fresh, new, green car lease agency in the Netherlands asked me to design a business card and a website. After doing some research in the lease business I was quite shocked by the looks of most of them. So it really felt as if my magic and I sprayed some Sjoesjoe sparkles into the car business hihi!

Bright2light: a developer of an innovative LED lightning solution asked me to illustrate their brochure with design lamps. It was great fun, I love to make these illustrations. 

* Creatiecafe: together with my friend Marieke Noordanus ( owner of Mint PR&Concepts) we organized two season editions of creatie cafe in our little atelier in Amsterdam. Creative fun DIY projects ( inspired by blogs/ pinterest or created ourselves) together with drinks & home made bites.

DIY Easter flower bottles

I really enjoy it to live in a country where seasons change every 3 months. Every season is special to me. Winter was nice and cosy, but now I'm really really really looking forward to spring! April issue of 101 Woonideeën gives you that spring boost to get in the mood. I created this little tutorial for 101 Easter special. You'll need some old juice bottles, colourful flowers and fancy tape, that's it. Simple, easy and fun to do on a sparkling spring afternoon.

My stay in a cosy Rice house

The last three days in Denmark were fantastic!! It's so much FUN to work for Rice and we are creating some funky new concepts. I had a warm and welcome stay in the home of founder Charlotte Gueniau. A bright coloured, happy Danish house full of prints, flowers, wallpapers, vintage fabrics and Rice goodies all over the place. Together with curious creative Anette Eckmann we had 2 inspiring, cosy evenings with lot's of healthy delicious food and wine :) I loved it!

{ Beautiful food mmm...}

Sjoesjoe is sooooo happy! For the next 3 days I am in Denmark. I am working on a great project for Rice at the moment. Every now and then I have to pinch myself to realize I am surrounded with mint coloured desks, a pink parrot phone, flamingo lamps, burning candles, good coffee, lot's and lot's of colour, Rice products and happy people who really celebrate life together... An amazing and inspiring place to work! The people are very very friendly and the food is just as good :))

Localilo in Amsterdam #2

Almost weekend J! So on this lovely friday a little Localilo post about my city: Amsterdam.

* eat: Beter & Leuk is a perfect easy little bistro and boutique in th east part of Amsterdam. Whether you want an expanded breakfast, enjoy a homemade carrot cake, a latte macchiato or a special high tea... all delicious and made with care. They love what they do and work with honest products. Their motto: Stop eating shit, eat good food.

* shop: Options! is a contemporary department store ( hidden between the very touristic shops on Damrak) where you can find a special mix of products; exciting designs from foreign countries to collaborations with local producers. The store is part of the Exchange hotel I told you about a while ago. Sparkling place, like like like!

* market: On the Neighbourfoodmarket young, old, fresh and hangovers meet each other where the best food in Amsterdam is collected. Anyone who loves delicious food and eating together should visit this new market in town. Neighbourfoodmarket is a platform for organic farmers, bakers, butchers, cheese makers, sausage grinders, juice pressers, soup producers. ( next market 18.3.2012 )
