You can surely make a beautiful school cone for your kid. There are several instructions on internet. When you are finished, just attach a little Loulabee brooch on it to make it prettier. This one is for my daughter who will start school this year, for inspiration. Just go ahead and give a try. I tell you, this is also my first one ever and it functions!!! The brooches you can find on my shop, and they are now on sale.

One of my earliest memories from my childhood is about the moon. My family had a ritual going out for a walk after the dinner. Every evening. In winter the walks were shorter in summer they were longer and we even got ice-cream some days. On one of those evenings, I think I must have been between two and three years old, I saw the full moon. It was so huge and light, and soooo fascinatingly beautiful that I stopped walking. It was as if I was glued on the pavement. After couple of seconds it...

Or should I better say "Wollstock"? Last weekend I had been to Holland to an international meeting of Waldorf style doll makers. This was the second meeting organised by Berend and Kamrin de Kronie in a very picturesque little dutch town, called Elspeet. Basically nearly hundred doll makers from 25 different countries including Mexico, US, Turkey, South Africa and several European countries, meeting and teaching each other in improving each other's doll making skills. I knew already couple of...

I have been on holidays the last couple of weeks. Spending time on the Aegean coast, enjoying the beauties of the region. On one of the days as we were traveling, I saw a shepherd with his goats on the mountings near by the coast. It was already warm, the artichokes were blooming, the crickets were singing, the air full with the intense smell of thyme and oregano. And in between the bells of the goats were to hear. This is holiday for me, with all those scents, voices and beautiful views over...

Everyone is talking about Berlin Street Style in the last years. Berlin is the center of “Street Style” in Europe. It looks like, as if you go out without taking a shower and combing your hair, but in reality you have spent at least a week on what you would wear on a certain moment on the street, not mentioning how much money you have spent for your wardrobe. On the one hand it is sometimes stressing not to know if you are “street styled” enough, but on the other hand it helps a lot if...

I had a great day with some of my doll maker friends. Very inspiring meeting!

Today, Hazel and I had a photo shooting appointment! It was so much fun with her as a model!

I always told to myself, there are two characters I would not make as a doll maker. Frida Kahlo and Mermaids. Not that I like them. I indeed love both characters, but also thought that the world does not need one more Frida 😆 Anyway, as life usually proves you that your thoughts are worthless, I am here now making mermaids 😄 ...

I have been thinking a lot the last months. Mostly thinking rather than doll making. I had very flourishing discussions with doll makers and doll lovers. What makes a doll unique, loveable, adorable? Does a doll have to be adorable at all? What is the intention of a doll maker, if she/he has any at all? What makes a collector to be appealed to a certain doll? And more questions...
