April Diary

April is always such a lovely month.

The sun starts shining, the blanket of clouds break up and there’s even days of a nearly perfect blue sky. Such a joy!

Oh, and have you seen the blossoming trees? So unbelievably beautiful! To me that’s the moment that Spring really starts.

And now I’m waiting for the tree in front of my window to grow it’s leaves. I’ve been wanting to see it evolve for the past two years now, but both times I happened to be on holiday exactly the week that it decided to give birth to those pretty new leaves.

All together March was a good month and here’s some pictures that proof it. 🙂 Continue reading March Diary

Feature on Blacksburg Belle


This week is a special week for my blog & JCLN Etsy shop. The first thing is today, because April Bowles-Olin from Blacksburg Belle has been so nice to interview me and publish it on her website! Isn’t that exciting?!?

If you want to see and read it, you can click here or on the image above. For those of you who don’t know April, she has an amazing website where she shares her Wednesday Wisdom when it comes to organizing, blogging and creativity. And the rest of the week there’s a lot of recipes, color inspiration and fun going on! She also offers some courses and consults for creative business owners.

Oh, and the other thing I’ll tell about coming Thursday (or maybe you’ve already seen something on Twitter?)
