New vintage shop!

Screen Shot 2015-07-21 at 20.42.06
I knoooow it’s been ages, but seriously I’ve been about to work myself mental! I truly needed a break to catch up with… LIFE! And now, five months later, I’m finally getting ready to start my work-life again. The raori shop is up and running again, my studio has gone through a mega-clean-up and I’m full of energy and ready for business again. As I like to just jump straight into things and do it all at the same time, I also decided to dust of my vintage shop and open it with a fresh new model (my wonderful friend Lynn) and some cool and kitschy new things…

The raori vintage shop is still under construction and I’ll be adding lots of new things the coming week, but please feel free to have a quick peek.

Etsy Lab- Just knitting

Yeay- another Etsy Lab in Belgium has just taken place! Together with Anna DeniseEmilie Danel and Johanna Vähätalo, we organized an afternoon of knitting in the sun. It was really creative and stimulating and we will definitely continue this project with lots of more handcraft ideas. Feel free to join our group BXL Handmade on Facebook to follow coming Etsy Labs. It’s a great way to get together and learn a new creative skill, as well as getting to know other artist in the area. Lots of exiting Etsy Labs are coming up: art journaling, crochet, sewing, pattern cutting, jewelry making …

See you next time, thanks everyone for making this afternoon so special!! https://www.facebook.com/groups/311813085535109/

raori on CNBC news

How funny… Not only did I make it to the front page of Etsy, but CNBC news just happened to be watching at the same time and a picture of me wearing a transparent top over a black bra ended up on the CNBC news all over the world! I had almost 5000 visitors in my shop, just today!! I can’t stop smiling 🙂

Etsy Embroidery Assignment

A while ago I was invited to be a part of an Etsy Assignment. We are going to make a little textile art piece of something that describes our craft on Etsy. I chose to make a little embroidery of my silk chiffon dress. I’m so curious to see the finished result of this little assignment!
