yippie yippie yeah, celebrate with us!

from Katrien we got these sweet handmade X-mas ornaments, which bring some christmas magic into our home. We love them! Thank you so much!

We signed the contract today!
It still feels unreal, but that will change for sure latest in January when we´re going to start with the renovation of our future studio. Oh boy hard work is coming. Although we love the factory charme, it currently makes one think of a slaughterhouse :) Here´s a first glimpse into our soon to be studio...
Bogi posted a picture from the outside.

We are celebrating today and therefore we´d like to give away one of our viking card sets and one horse mobile. Just leave your comment on this post and Friederike! will draw the winners on Friday. Good luck and don´t forget to check back on Friday!

angie said...

Congratulations! So I was reading too fast through your entry today and I thought "furniture studio"? When did she start making furniture? I must have missed something... Then I reread it and you said "FUTURE STUDIO"...oooohhhh! That makes a lot more sense! So happy for you! (Although I bet you would make fantastic furniture too!)

Well done! And good Luck!
