I always struggle a bit with the product photography, it's difficult to come up with new ideas and props, but luckily my dad keeps adding new bits to my flat! I love the shelves in the last photograph and am pleased with the composition, but it will forever bug me that the storage and spice jars aren't evenly spaced. Little things like that always remind me of my friend Caro, as I know it would bug her too!

I went for a quick afterwork drink and snack in the park with my friend and on my way home I saw this huge sign on the top of a building. It fit summarised my week perfectly.

Since I launched the Gromperekichelchen Tea Towels over a year ago, I've wanted to make a version in Luxembourgish too, but I am slowly realising that, the journey from having an idea to the end result, is always much, much longer than I anticipate! Running a business on your own is all about patience and perseverance.
The translation was done by a very kind customer of mine.
As soon as I've taken photos of them, they will be available from my shop and qiphome.

I've been back at the studio this week, making a prototype cushion for a client - I'll show you the pattern and finished result once the project is finished. I've also been developing some new products, they're being produced at the moment, I'll post them here as soon as they're done. It always takes so much longer than planned to develop a new product, the idea can be so clear in my head, but actually ironing out all the details, finding suppliers and manufacturers can take weeks and months. Which is why I'm already starting to think about Christmas!
I just found this screen printing kit over on Design Milk - really lovely idea! And if like me, you're already thinking of Christmas, it's great for making personalised presents!

Silk & Burg will have stand at the market this year, so come and say hello if you're in town - we'll be at Knuedler. We'll be selling a couple of emaischen products shown in the photos above. I don't usually print t-shirts, but these kids' sizes were just too cute! They come in size 1-6 year old and are available from the online shop and of course at the market on Monday.

inspired by SkinnyLaMinx's making Fridays). Exposing the screens isn't that much fun, so instead I just cut stencils out of paper and stuck them to the screens. I had so much fun, some of the prints didn't work out, but I really liked one of them and decided to frame it for our home.
