Floral lucky bag


They make themselves scarce, but I know you like them, so because Mother’s Day is coming, I worked hard and here they are, a brandnew production of lucky bags like from our childhood.
This time it’ s about a floral motif, inspired by a fabric I showed you the other day.
But I don’t tell you more, because otherwise it won’t be a surprise anymore!


Shipping fee included.

Fifi’s choice

Believe me, it was almost as difficult as Sophie’s choice…
But now it’s time to announce the winners of the contest C’est pour qui?

At first, there is Anzil who enthused me by her weekly diary of polaroids. One for each day and all of them just so beautiful:



There is also Annsofi with her soft words like a security blanket, wraped in a lovely envelope:


And then there is Alessia who touched me by telling a lot about her. She is right, I always enjoy to know more about the persons who love my work:


At last, there is Mélanie who surprised me with a little construction for a cute studio where you can even find Susie:



Here it is. The winners will get the book as promised. So that the others won’t be disappointed, I will send them a little surprise as well.
It makes me feel sad to know that this little contest is over, it was really great… I hope you enjoyed it! At least, I did!
And for someone who likes surprises I was very spoiled. Thank you soooo much!



You impressed me!  I was just expecting little notes and look what I got! Every morning, I was excited to open my mailbox and discovering the daily mail.

Now, picking out 3 winners is too hard. Well, like the 3 musketeers, they will finally be 4 because it’s really impossible to make a choice…

Just give me a little more time and I will return tomorrow with results and photos. It’s a deal!

Origami garland


For her new origami lesson, Kristina has prepared little paper balloons. The funny part is at the end, when you blow, and the balloon appears like a surprise!


We threaded them like pearls on a necklace and this makes lovely garlands which I like to hang everywhere.


We used a new pattern. It’s called Juliette and there are 3 sheets of each of the 6 colors in every package. It comes in 2 sizes because it’s nicer to vary the balloons for the garland.


18 sheets. Size 12 x 12 cm or 15 x 15 cm. Shipping fee included.

Flower power


There’s another little contest right here at ID Créatives which is under my patronage because it’s about… flowers, of course!


While we’re at flowers, I recently got hold of these two fabrics I found on an American thrift store. They smell like summer, don’t you think so?

Go to Belleville

This weekend, it’s open house in the artists’ studios in Belleville.


Anyplace in streets, courts and backyards, more than 200 artists welcome you with open arms.
This is the right time for a nice walk in the heart of this Parisian quarter which is so full of surprises…



The paintings above are by Philippe Barnier. An artist I like a lot, and not only because he’s my cousin!

D Day
