Goodbye April, Hello May

April was quite a productive month. I’ve done a lot of designing this month and am about to open up my Etsy shop (probably next week). I have been stuck in a designers block these first months of the year. I am very happy I can finally do some decent designing again. I will show show you some of my work as soon as my shop opens.

April was also a month full of chocolate (oh Easter!) and a lot of running and cycling to stay healthy. Here are some of my favorite moments of April:

The first weekend of april was spent in Rotterdam for Motel Mozaique, a festival with lots of good music, art and theatre. Our favorites were Ásgeir, Matthew & The Atlas, Kurt Vile, Angel Olsen, Moddi and Erlend Øye. We also visited a lot of great places like Bleij above, they have the most delicious icecream and pizza’s. Love the colours they used in their interior.

We found this old Atak Inka at an antique market and fell in love with it. We took it home and we’ll take it with us soon on a small holiday trip to a yet unknown place.
