It's official!

We have the keys to our new house! Yesterday evening, as the sun was setting, we signed the papers and checked all the details - the house needs a few finishing touches that are scheduled in the next weeks but we are happy to be able to start moving our boxes and furniture, assembling the new kitchen and slowly settling in during the month of July.

But first a bit of cleaning and dusting (the street outside our new row of houses won't be paved before this fall so there is a lot of dust in the air). During this period of switching internet locations and waiting for electricity in the new house I will not be blogging much but you can still check my Instagram album for new photos from the house (click the Instagram on the right of the screen).

Have a great weekend!

Hoho, zdaj imamo tudi uradno ključe nove hiške! Včeraj zvečer smo ob sončnem zahodu podpisali papirje in preverili vse malenkosti - hiša je potrebna še nekaterih lepotnih popravkov, ki so naročeni v prihodnjih nekaj tednih, a midva sva srečna, da lahko končno začneva seliti škatle in pohištvo, montirati novo kuhinjo in se v Juliju počasi ustaliti na svojem.

Ampak najprej je na vrsti čiščenje in brisanje prahu (ulica pred našimi vrstnimi hiškami bo asfaltirana šele jeseni, zato je v zraku veliko prahu). Medtem, ko selimo internetni priključek in čakamo na elektriko v novi hiši, ne bom veliko objavljala, lahko pa pokukate v moj foto albumu na Instagramu (kliknite na gumb Instagram na desni strani ekrana).

En lep in ne prevroč vikend želim!

Three years!

We have been so busy with our move that I almost forgot to celebrate Loddelina's third blogoversary!
I am very grateful to all of you who follow my posts and leave kind and much appreciated comments - your feedback inspires me and gives me motivation to create!

Thank you for being friends of Loddelina,

P.S. After three years of blogging in English it is time to make this blog bilingual :) Živjo, Slovenija!

Ker smo zadnje čase tako zelo zaposleni z našo selitvijo v novo hišo, sem skoraj pozabila obeležiti tretjo obletnico Loddelininega bloga! Zelo sem hvaležna vsem, ki spremljate moje objave in puščate prijazne in zelo dobrodošle komentarje - vaše besede me navdihujejo in dajejo moji ustvarjalnosti krila!

Hvala, da ostajate prijatelji Loddeline,

On its way

The finished custom made organizer is on its way to the lovely customer - I hope she likes it!

It's time I pack up my sewing machine and supplies and get them ready for the move...

See you soon,
Have a great weekend, everybody!

My creative space

Today I am working on a custom order, a handbag organizer for a very special customer. She was so kind to send me a picture and detailed description of all the items she usually carries in her bag so I could design the pockets accordingly.

Here are a few pictures of work in progress: the base of organizer is linen blend canvas in taupe and the  pockets are a patchwork of pastel prints and stripes.

There is also a zippered pocket, two swivel hooks for keys and a custom embroidered quote - I freehand machine embroidered each word and then tied the loose threads in the back; a bit more work than connecting the words together in one sentence but it is worth it!

I will post pictures of finished organizer soon!

My new business cards have arrived!

I ordered some new business cards from Vistaprint just a week ago and today they arrived in the post!
I used one of their special offers and ordered 250 premium cards (blank in the back) for free, with a small charge for uploading my own image instead of using their predesigned template (though I find many of them very nice) and the price of postage.

I composed my background in PhotoShop, choosing a solid taupe colour and placing a small image in the corner.  I then chose a blank Vistaprint template, uploaded my image and added text (red dots are from Symbols font).

I am very happy with the result! True, the cards have matt finish and are not as glamurous as Moo cards but they will serve their purpose very well for the price of 3.5 Euro cent per card.

Have a great weekend, everyone, see you soon!

My Day Monday


It doesn't have to be a gloomy day - here are some cheerful items from talented ladies of European Street Team on Etsy: rainy fairy brooch from lacravatteduchien, silver cloud earrings from Nafsika, umbrella necklace from SilentRoses and Summer rain wellies watercolour from HandyHappy.

I hope you are having a creative start of the new week!

June is here. June is here ?!!!

We are one month away from moving into our new house and the excitement is rising (so are piles of boxes all over the flat).

I hope you will bare with me in this busy time and forgive me if I skip a Loddelina newsletter or two - I will compensate the lack of new items in my shop by posting updates on our home decorations. We are moving into a newly built house and there will be a lot of work adapting our "vagabond" furniture to the new spaces - some of the furniture has been with us since our first home in France, has spent time in storage, was relocated to Germany and to France again. We will have to install a brand new kitchen before we can move in and our bare gardern will be nowhere near ready to welcome two impatient children who will have just started their summer break...

I leave you with latest two items from the shop, little canvas zippered pouches - very practical for storing smaller items in your purse or as cosmetic and gadget cases.

Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend!
