This must-see-monday is a little bit special, because it's my own colleague!
When looking for someone to feature today I suddenly realized I have an artist in my office only a couple of meters away :) It so much fun to have another crafty person around you, so needless to say I'm quite happy we're working in the same place! My colleague draws the most friendly monsters, the coolest sharks and the cutest bears. Meet for instance this rain lover:
He and his wife have an atelier called 'Leuke Kunst ('Happy Fun Art'). They draw and paint a lot, even on surfboards! There are so many different designs and the best is, you're able to buy almost all of them printed on a t-shirt! The treebirds are my favourite:
They also started this great initiative 'Doe lief' (or in English 'Hug the world'). You know I'm all about happy little things, so it's no surprise I absolutely love the idea behind it. Hug the world is all about being kind to each other and making the world a little bit happier by spreading posters like these:
Wouldn't the streets look more friendly with all these posters around you? It definitely would make me smile :) Download your own poster here or here and put it on your window!

This weeks must-see-monday is Rob Ryan, a British artist specializing in papercutting and screen-printing. His artwork has been featured on a lot of book covers and magazines and since I first heard of him, his designs seem to pop up everywhere.
His papercutting is absolutely amazing and beautiful!
He also sells these little tiles in his etsy:
And there's even a book!

My week started with lots of inspiration and I was really busy working on things, but suddenly it all disappeared. How stupid! Now I made new plans, got some new ideas and want to craft all day :D Unfortunately I'm away all weekend, so everything has to wait.

Yesterday I put my tiny 'happiness package' in the shop: a happiness card with a little clothes pin friend. At first I was really satisfied, but now I have mixed feelings about it. It's just not exactly what I imagined :( The package needs more happy items! But right now my head is a mess with too many little ideas, so that's not helpful either. I just need to organize all my ideas and trying some of them. I'm already working on a new happiness card, because the one I use is actually a promo card. I altered my original design a bit:
Too bad my little holiday is over and I have to work all day again. Please, I need days of 48 hours! Where can I order them?!
