It’s that time of the year again, the smell of pine, cinnamon, drinking glühwein or hot chocolate to keep yourself warm and just a hint of tacky decorations. Yes, Christmas is right around the corner!


Monday night we were invited to IKEA’s very first pop-up workshop located in the heart of Brussels! Little did we know we would be proving our sewing skills to our fellow blogger friends!

With this pop-up workshop IKEA wants to inspire the people in the street by showing them the endless possibilities of textile. The workshop is open for everyone that wants to get inspired, read a book or get creative. Sewing machine, spare textile and all other needed materials are provided and experts at your service.
Don’t be mistaken it’s not an IKEA store located in the city center. On the contrary, you can’t buy anything in the pop-up workshop, you can only get a bunch of inspiration and crafting assistance for free.


If you follow Baroness O. on pintrest you might have seen some washi tape inspiration passing by.
Washi what? If you have no idea what washi tape actually is, I think you have been living and Mars for the last couple of years? Anyhow, for those how haven’t heard about it, washi tape or Japanse masking tape is a very thin paper tape with very nice patterns and colors, you must have allready seen it somewhere.
