It’s Cuddle Up Day!

Today is Cuddle Up Day.
I updated one of my Best Nine of 2020 with this day in mind.
The Dutch weather is perfect for cuddling up under a blanket at the moment, it’s cold! So put on something warm & comfy (2020 has been the year I embraced sweatpants!) and cuddle up. If you don’t have anyone to cuddle with, remember that plant love is also real love. I REALLY love my plants, so who’s to say that my plants don’t also really love me?? I choose to believe they do, haha. Oh, and also: real cuddles will be making a comeback soon!⁠ Have a nice day!⁠

Celebrate Whatever!

The Holidays are over but there’s no reason to stop celebrating small things. It’s been a tough year and we should be kind to ourselves. You survived 2020: well done! Put on pants today? That’s awesome! Checked in on a friend? You deserve extra karma points for that! Feel like you didn’t do anything worth celebrating today? Remember you are still awesome and it’s okay and normal to feel bad sometimes!⁠ 💚
This was one of my best nine for 2020 on Instagram, and I updated it a little bit for 2021.⁠

Hello January!

Happy New Year! This is the first page of my 2021 calendar. A mix of cozy winter items and a positive outlook.⁠
The calendar is sold out (thank you!🙏🏻) but I have lots of other paper-goodies available in my Etsy shop.🛒 Take a look if you like what you see, and want to support a small business. Dutch shops are sadly still closed so I could really use it. Take care⁠💚

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!⁠
Wishing everyone an amazing 2021. Let’s do everything we couldn’t do last year and appreciate it even more.⁠
I love January so much more than I love December (I don’t love December at all actually) The days are getting longer again, our lockdown is (hopefully) almost over, and it feels like a fresh start. ⁠
This is my “plan” for 2021. What do you think?⁠

Bye Bye 2020!!

BYE BYE 2020, THE YEAR WE ALL STAYED HOME.⁠
This was my third most liked post of 2020 and I thought it was a fitting one to end the year with. ⁠
I think I made this one in March. Oh how little we knew then about how the rest of the year would be!
If you’re reading this it means you survived 2020, congrats!⁠
I want to thank everyone who follows my work. THANK YOU for your support, comments, likes, kind messages and orders, I REALLY appreciate it so much!!⁠
Have a good last day of this terrible year and see you in 2021.⁠
Take care!⁠ 🥂⁠

Warm Wishes

Happy Christmas! I hope you’re enjoying yourself!⁠
This is one of the Christmas cards that I designed for Boobalou
They sell beautiful zero waste and sustainable products.⁠

Hello Winter!

Today is the first official day of winter (on the Northern hemisphere that is). And although this one will be a little (or a lot) different from other years, there’s still so much to enjoy. For starters: the days will start to get longer again, hurray!! And what about candles, cozy knitwear, yummy comfort food and long winter walks followed by hot drinks? (Mulled wine is my favourite!) Winter can also be a time to recharge, find new inspiration and make plans. Are you as excited for the start of winter as I am? I would love to hear it and why.

December Sadness

When your self care routine is not enough and you just feel sad.
I had quite a horrible week but at least I managed to do some drawing again so things are going in the right direction. For those also feeling the December/2020 blues: take care!💚⁠

Happy International Tea Day!

Happy international tea day! I’m a huge tea-lover, so of course I have to celebrate this. This is actually a day to bring attention to the often poor working conditions in the tea industry. So: tea is always a good idea, but make sure you buy from tea brands that support fair trade.

Hej!

Scandinavian-winter-style-inspired, because French style is not the only style I’m obsessed with.⁠.

PS. I’m selling a few original drawings, in A4 and A5 size. I have them available in my Etsy shop.
