Make your own Pin Wall + A desk make-over

Intro_make your own pinwall.jpg

Hello and Happy Weekend everyone. Last weekend I have been busy working on a nice DIY project that I’d like to share with you today. After the last Real Talk I thought I need to share something more cheerful, colorful and bright with you.

It all started a few weeks ago where I wrote about decorating small spaces. After we moved into our sweet home we first started working on all other rooms except the guest room. We never really new what to do with it, since there are no kids yet and also not guests everyday. That’s why we invested more time and effort in making the rest of the house cozy. However, after a while I had this urgent need to do something with my free time. Since I knew what color means, I loved everything creative, but I never thought I would end up putting my work on a blog, cause at that time, the internet wasn’t even existing. Moving to Amsterdam and being inspired by diversity and creativity everyday I wanted to do get hands-on as relaxation after a stressful work day in a big organisation. So there was the blog, but no space for all my things. You know the end of this story; The guest room had a purpose. I wanted to transform it into a craft room / home office where I can garner my ideas and inspirations and find freedom to forget all routines around me.

The room is very small, so I cannot have one of these amazing huge studios I’d love to have and that I pin about everyday. Therefore, I started with gathering decoration ideas for small office spaces and showed you some examples. Like this I could imagine how our small room might look. During that process I got really inspired by those pin walls / mood boards that you can use for collecting postcards, paper items, ribbons or whatever floats your boat.

Seeing these pin walls and looking at the white wall of my newly declared craft room, I was sold. Yes, I want that pin wall there too.

I think it is a wonderful tutorial and DIY project for a rainy weekend. I put together all steps how to make your own pin wall and how to decorate it. Have a look at all steps and the list of materials you need after the jump. Continue reading

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties


Hello everyone. This is now the third trial of starting to write a post. I trashed the previous two, cause I thought they were too honest or on the other hand too normal. After getting frustrated, cause I felt like I had a writing blockage, I thought I write about my current mood, which actually brings me back to the first trial of sharing something more personal with you. I thought about what it means to be a good writer and blogger who really writes from the heart and shows the courage and authenticity to tell a more personal story about the struggles in life one has to deal with every day. Everyone has to overcome the hurdles life presents to them on a plate. We think that we are the only one in the world dealing with a certain issue, but actually when starting to talk to others about your problems you realize that the person right next to you is also trying to swim to stay above water. That gives us hope and strength. That’s why I thought I share with you my personal obstacles I have to overcome everyday.  Continue reading
