Special Feature ~ DenimDarling

Today I'd like to introduce a very dear friend of mine, Yvi, who is one of the most creative people I know! Yvi already started crafting as a little girl making clothes for her Barbie dolls. These days she knits, crochets, does cross-stitch, sews, beads and very much enjoys working with felt. Last time we spoke she told me that one of the most relaxing activities was spinning yarn!
Since she lives in Cologne we don't get to see each other that often, but when we do there's always a fun project she's working on. She knits adorable baby hats delighting many a young mother, and currently she's working on sewing baby-name-mobiles.
Check out the cute beaded koala bear she's given me and the beautiful beaded bracelet below:

Recently I've coerced gently persuaded Yvi to open her own online shop on Dawanda. It's called DenimDarling. and is brand new! As the name suggests she will be selling a variety of denim skirts, which she fashions from pairs of jeans trousers, decorative jeans-flower brooches and other denim accessories. I asked her who came up with the catchy shop name. She said it was a collaboration between her and her boyfriend who also designed and created the shop-banner. She's only just started and is currently stocking her new shop. Do stop by and say hello if you can spare a minute. For my part I wish her much success, as I know Yvi is one very talented woman!

Happy weekend!
