Mostly Mondays are in need for some inspiration, motivation or just a smile! While I shared textures the year before, I will be sharing 2019, on every other Monday, handwritten notes, thoughts and inspirational quotes as free printables.

Collection Of Inspirational Quotes For 2019
I think, since we talked about how to display this one outside as a statement piece for this summer, I felt it had to have the option to be printed large so this one is in high resolution when you download it on the right. It is fab when printed on A3 paper but will be alright on A2 or larger. But don't worry drag and drop from above will be good for A4 printing too ;)
Choose happy - isn't that the the right attitude!?!
Well, I think so and in relation to my last inspiring garden decor post I think it certainly is fitting, who isn't feeling free and happy surrounded by a bit of nature, friends and family? Yes, indeed I am usually not for a lot of colour in my art prints but I think I can make an exception for this one. After all, yellow is a happy sunshine colour and just about right to call for and enjoy the summer time, isn't it?
Please for personal use only, thank you!
I guess you know already - I couldn't stop myself I had to make a black and white minimalist variation too. Simply because we can choose happy all year around and maybe we want to give it as motivational card. For quick and easy printing I think the laid back version works just as well. But of course it is suitable for large printing, wouldn't leave you hanging.
Feel invited to make it yours below, download or drag and drop, in any case it will print best at A6 or A5 and it will be just right as a motivational card, pinned up on your wall, framed or if you like just pop it on your desk for that moment in 'crisis'. Maybe even add it to one of our concrete DIY's like this hexagon coaster to make you smile. That can't be wrong, you know in that moment. So I will suck it up now, it is Monday and my list has enough bullet points to work on for months.
Fabulous week, Antje
Calm is a power, isn't it? I feel it is and at the same time it is often hard to be so strong to actually stay calm. I don't wanna bother you with details as I think everyone can relate in one way or another. However, there are moments when this little note helped me, reminded me that I can do it, just try to find your calm, it helped me to focus and to go on. So here we go, I scanned my note and hope by sharing it with you, you will find some motivation or maybe even empowerment in such a moment too!
Yes, you are right, I am dropping a hint here. Above, I used a chopstick, cut the card to my liking and tapped the cute quote to the stick. Reindeer moss flakes helped to put the stick and Multiflora Air Plant into place within my concrete chimney vessel. It's a wonderful surprise for all plant fans and gift idea number one!
Valentines day is coming up and I feel like I gotta to share some love with you guys! I mean you support me, love my creations, share and gift them, cherish them, well as they say - You are magic.
Give this cute sentence a lot more weight and add it to your Valentines gift or present it as card! Yes you can, it is the thought that counts so go on, check the downloads below and print it off, best in A5 or smaller.
Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds - nothing else to say beside from they now come in 'concrete' and you can use them as paperweight, ring holder or display it proudly as a sculpture. I even created some with notes like 'you are gem' and more! But of course you can also go for the real thing and gift handcrafted jewellery by EniJewellery [ring left] or SlinkyLinksJewellery [leather earrings below]. Ahh and yes, didn't I say I want to share some love?!?' this is a second free printable for you to enjoy! Love.
Well of course, I know, sometimes you've got big gifts to share and why not do it with the smallest card ever. Have a look to the left for inspiration, the golden leather keychain is handcrafted by Suede&Co. Marvellous, don't you think?! Too cheesy, too big, too Valentines day???
What can I say, of course we did wander around Miami Beach and enjoyed every bit of Art Deco, Palm Trees and colourful life as well!
To us it all was a bit of Winter sun plus one wonderful sunrise thunder storm at the beach, marvellous!
Let's wander together! indeed. First things first, I apologise for my delay in updates and of course providing this cute download but, and you wont believe it, I found the one spot in Florida without phone or internet excess - Dry Tortugas, National Park! Yes, yes, I totally recommend it to everyone to go there, it is just stunning!! Only thing was, and I am almost certain it is a good thing, once you have been there you are on proper Holiday Mode. Well, let me just say, we never switched our devices back on.
Please be happy with me, it was so so needed to recharge and find new creativity! Anyhow, here we go catching up with things and after having fulfilled a couple of your wonderful orders and launched two new designs since I am back. Today, it's time to share some holiday impressions to inspire!
We had to visit the PAMM [Pérez Art Museum Miami] and downtown Miami too. I can only recommend an iced coffee and this relaxing view after having enjoyed the Christo and Jeanne-Claude exhibition!
Well that's it and I hope you feel inspired. Our New Orleans and Miami as well as Key West trip was just marvellous, for a lack of a better word, and these are just a few places we visited but these are the once I can without a doubt recommend to you all!
And after all this we couldn't miss to be inspired by the Wynwood Walls, another recommended stop if you like! And what do you know I think, I found my perfect backdrop!!!
Please for personal use only, thank you!
See soon, Antje
who is still rather behind than in front of the camera...
Our trip this year started with New Orleans - obvious right now, isn't it?! The Eliza Jane Hotel is just wonderful and we are having a wonderful start with their beautiful breakfast offerings.
Hello everyone - today from the USA - yeah, hence the late post in UK time. It is Monday and I am on holiday, can you believe it?! Indeed a rare occasion. So here we go, of course I want to share that wonderful feeling of having a proper break with you!
What can I say, I am sure everyone has it's own perfect dream of holiday sorted but to me it is food, new people, new impressions that inspire, taking photos of everything I come across for no purpose whatsoever ;) exploring and enjoying time with my other half.
Some highlights so far have been the jazz festival and of course we had to add a couple of LP's to my record collection. The only proper touristy thing on our list was 'cafe du monde' - people it is sugar on sugar - but hey we have done it as a one in a lifetime thing, haha.
What could be left to say, the food is good, the city is slow and the music is delightful. I wish you all a wonderful week and hope to share that wonderful happy feeling with my free download below or maybe inspire you to take one soon!
Big hugs, waves and greetings to all of you, will be back soon, Antje
It is the first Monday of the new year but it is still a Monday and I am in need of some motivation to get going while trying to set out my goals and priorities for this week. It's proper hard this week for me as I am all excited for my upcoming big holiday break. We planned it for so long and I can't wait for Friday!
Anyhow, this break is surely for us, myself, to explore and adventure but I want to keep this statement in mind for all my goals to come whatever they might be. It is hard sometimes when crafting and designing to stay clear of just designing sellable goods - one has to eat, I am sure you can relate.
Happy 2019 and I look forward to welcome you back soon for more freebies, diy and decoration projects and so much more!
Marvellous - it is fantastic to welcome you to 2019 and all its adventures!
I for one can't wait to get started, loads of creative projects I want to get started on but all are with one goal in mind - sharing creativity and hopefully good vibes only. I think we need it and it is joy to me. Anyway, no proper life lesson to share from my side just the wish to all of you to have a joyful, happy, lively, crafty and loving new year!
Let's get right to it!! Yes, indeed first newbie for 2019 will be the free printable addition to my freebie blog section. It is more or less inspirational words, quotes and wisdom I'll stumble upon during this year [just like every year but I will try to use it differently in 2019] and I have set myself the challenge and goal to publish one every other Monday this year. It will be the ones which I feel fairly strongly about and I wish to keep, it will be more or less in my handwriting scanned off from my notebook page and all will be free for personal use - so feel invited to share and print away.
From the left you could do drag and drop or simply download below and enjoy!
