Small changes - new colors


Since my company has change direction and putting the focus more on selling products to the shops, my work has also increased to a much higher level than before. I do not have much time over for decorating and experiment with different things here at home as I use to.
But now and then I try to find the time, and a few weeks ago I decided to change the color of the legs of our coffee table. It was dark brown and I wanted a more happy color as a contrast to the basic colors I have in my living room.

I am quite happy with the result and luckily the rest of the family loves it too. What do you think?

DIY Memory part 2



Here comes the description voor the DIY Memory game that you can easily make yourself. All you need is:

Wooden blocks ( very easy to find by the second hand shops) Important is to look for the same shape, otherwise the game will be too easy.

Paper in different colors (paper with a lot of different patterns and pictures will make it more fun and colorful) Think about using old magazines and leftovers from wall paper. Try to use what you already have at home.

A scissor or a hobby knife

Glue (for paper)

A little punch. You can use any form you like. You can also easily cut a form yourself









 
Start with cutting pairs of almost identical patterns in the shape of your block. I did not have total identical pictures but it’s still easy to see which ones belong together. It makes the challenge a little bigger to find the right ones. (You can choose to make a stencil to get the same form every time)

 

Then glue the paper onto the blocks.



Choose a form for the front of the blocks. Easy is to use a little punch. I here used a star cut out of some old wall paper left overs.



Glue them to the other side of the blocks and you are actualy allready doen!



  

Have fun a be creative with what you use. Make it special!

Homemade Memory



I have this love for old wooden toy blocks and I have bought a lot of different blocks by the second hand shops around. 

These blocks are in a funny/different shape and are perfect for making your own memory game. The girls love it as well even though they are almost too big for this game, but they love the blocks and the print on them. 

They are very funny easy to make. I will give you a tutorial very soon how to make these.

Anybody here from Finland??

I am from Denmark and I am a Scandinavian girl, and when people hear that, they think that you then know all the countries there and all the languages. 

But unfortunately it’s not true. I have only been to Sweden once when I was very young, and at school we didn’t learn the other Scandinavian languages. And Finland was a country very far away. 

My image of Finland use to be with snow there all year and with a lot of reindeers. And the language was really a language I absolutely did not understand. The only thing I know in Finnish is yksi kaksi kolme and that means one, two tree :-) ! 

Today it would have been practical if I could speak the other Scandinavian languages, because I need to translate some small lines into Finnish. 

And that brings me to the point of this blog mail. Do you by any chance speak Finnish and can/will you help me with translating a few sentences into Finnish? 

It doesn’t take much time. I have used Google Translate but have no idea if it’s correct, (which it normally never is) So would you be able to help me??? Please!!!

You can contact me by sending an email to this adress: marianne@dig-mig.nl

I would be so happy if there is someone who can help me.

Paper lamp

I think a lot of you know the pictures of my old retro paper lamp. I see it now and then popping up on different blogs around the world and am proud that people like it that much. 

But for my web shop I have another one as well. It’s a newer version which comes in a nice box as well which makes it perfect for a gift to give to someone special. If you are interested you can find it here

I wish you all a very nice weekend.

looking back at Playtime

It has now been more than a week since we came back from the fair ‘Playtime’ in Paris. The fair was really successful and we had a great time there Marjon and I. We have been speaking to a lot of nice people, made a lot of new contacts and seen a lot of inspiring things. I want to share some things from the fair and our booth of course, but I must admit that my pictures are not the best, but it can give you a little impression of what it looked like.
 


 

 

 

 

During the last week a lot of pictures have been popping up everywhere with pictures from Playtime and I have made a little selection of what I like. 

If you have a shop somewhere with children’s clothes and accessories it’s defiantly worth visiting this fair. So many different styles and with a quality of high standard.
