Behind the Scenes

What do you do?

A question that people regularly ask me is: What exactly do you do ?

Besides working as a cancer registrar, I create home decor. Everything to make my home cosier and make other people happy for housewarmings, babyshowers, birthdays, etc.

I started out with making Halloween wreaths, soon made other wreaths as well. I also create several artificial flower bouquets, and then I got the hang of my Cricut Maker machine and found my way to a scroll saw. I’m only a newbie when it comes to a scroll saw user and I’m looking forward to learn more. My goal is 3D signs and other small tier home decor.

Besides creating my home decor, I’m all into minimalism. Yes, minimalism and home decor can work together. I do prefer stackable home decor and some small pieces that can work with others as well. So it most definately can work.

How did you become so creative?

In my childhood I have always loved to create: drawing, sewing and knitting. Actually all kinds of hobbies that my mother taught me, was to turn a basic product into an end product. When I was 21 years old, I enrolled myself into an interior stylist course where I came into contact with paint and upcycling old stuff. 

From there I gained a lot of knowledge from organizing and I came across the minimalistic way of life.

What is the purpose of your blog?

As I said before, I want to inspire you to start creating. Corona most definately gives you more time to create. Anyone can create and meet the minimalistic lifestyle. You don’t need a big budget to make something beautiful for your home and your life.

Just start a creative way of life
