Very little time for blogging or sleeping these days... I am working hard on my school assignments and making new things for an upcoming Christmas market. Everything will be available in my Etsy shop in case you are not in Barcelona on the 19th of December...

I am looking for a new apartment in Barcelona, because my boyfriend is finally moving here very soon! Wish me good luck.

One of my latest crafty adventures is Dorset button making. If you visit my Etsy shop you'll see a series of hair clips decorated with these buttons.
