I got mail!

 From Eefje, from

From Maria, from

From Emmel, from

I still needed to share all the great mail I received! 
The first 2 pictures I got for the 'swap' I proposed on here a while ago. One from Eefje, who send me this lovely tote bag and this cool key chain that she made, and she made these great packages, from which I can really learn something! And one from Maria who made this nice small print and got me a tote bag from the museum shop where she works, I love the print on it, it looks almost like some kind of paper cutting. The third picture is from a 'swap' Emmel started on her blog. The idea was that she would embroider a picture she found on my blog, and I would send something in return. She chose the photo of my girlduck-drawing. I think it turned out really great!
Everything I received was so nice and so much fun! Just as I hoped when I asked for some nice mail in return! I used to join a lot of swaps on this website called swap-bot. Where you could join these mail 'exchanges'. And it was so much fun, I always wanted to join everything, too bad I don't have time for that anymore, receiving fun mail is almost kind of addictive :)

I opened an Etsy Shop!

I opened an Etsy Shop!

Together with my boyfriend. We both love to make photographs every where we go, and because of that have tons of photos, with which we never do anything. Soooo I thought that was a bit of a waste and decided to do something about that. So here it is: makelifeparadise. Come check it out!

And for the nice people who read my blog, I created a coupon code which gives you free shipping! Just enter: cathairinmyeye. When you decide to order something. We will be posting more and more photos in the upcoming days and weeks and months, so there might be something you like.

random weekend pictures

A nice set of drawers I found on a flee market this weekend. I think they belonged to a kitchen cabinet, but they work great on my desk!
A Ukrainian chocolate wrapper that I bought when I traveled through the Ukrain a couple of years ago.
And last but not least: the best Dutch apple pie, with the recipe to go with it!

Who liks to receive (and send) some mail!

I have made this small series of prints. And I thought maybe, just maybe,  there is someone out there who would like to have one. And since I love sending and receiving mail, and since my mailbox has been lacking a lot lately in the fun mail department. I thought maybe we could do a sort of trade for it. I will send you one of these prints (your choice) and you will send me some fun mail. Just something simple and small, something you made, or you have laying around and think I might enjoy. I'll be sending from Germany, and am fine with sending everywhere across the globe. Just leave a comment below this post, I will give it until next week Monday 9th. If there is more then one response I will randomly pick a name (if there is none I will send it to my mom, haha....)

what I've been working on

Some pictures of pictures in my sketchbook. :) I have been trying out some things and always like to take pictures while working. It is nice to look at your work sort of from a distance, while working.

Some funny signs, I especially love the one of the dog with the shopping basket.
