Food carving

Don’t play with food, but if you have to take a knife and get graving!

 


Letterpress shop – Simple Song

I’d love to be able to attend their workshops… there is a reason why I am still attracted to font, despite that I have learned the profession of lithography but never made my way in this sector.

Don’t miss their blog, since 2007, and it’s huge!


Special easter message for your best (girl-)friend

Found this cute tutorial for a hidden message in an egg on popptalk. That is certainly something for someone special!

I’m already thinking on how to use the egg whites and yolks…

Wrapping objects with fabric

Found these tutorials via chewingthecudweekly. Handy when you have run out of wrapping paper or a spare lovely fabric (and I have plenty).

Circle through the city of Zurich – 8th-9th May


(Pictures show Lyn Lingerie, Chez Lesunja, Goldsmith)

As announced earlier; it’s time again for ‘Kreislauf 4+5‘ from 8th to 9th May. Kreislauf is a word creation that alludes to the districts called ‘Kreis’ but also means circle and the other word ‘Lauf’ meaning to run in German or walking in Swiss German.

It’s about getting to know our creative neighborhood in design and fashion and for which these districts are know for. Besides being the districts for clubbing and formerly infamous red light district (and still at some places).

I liked the open-minded and relaxed atmosphere last time. Actually, I discovered it by accident with a friend. But this year it’s highlighted in my agenda! Meet me there, if you fancy joining me with my bicycle.
