Since I got my hands on the book  Freehand Fashion by Chinelo Bally I’ve been drooling over this. So much drooling to the point where it get’s hard to decide which project I want to try out first!

And that’s where you guy come in. I invite all of you to help me choose my first project from this book. I selected 8 projects, and you guys can vote for you favorite one until friday.

I know, it’s short notice, so just do it now so you won’t forget.

And I also have a gift for all of you, from now on the blog will actually be multilangual. Right now you’re on the English part of the site, if you click on the flag on the right you’ll go to the Dutch site. If you’re in a post in the wrong langue and you click the flag then, if there’s a translation you will automaticly go to the post you were reading.

I had some troubles setting this up, so my goal to have a completely bilangual site by now failled, but I will do everything to make it work to it’s full potential as soon as possible.

And of course you can start follow my blog in English on Bloglovin and any aother reader. Just search for bouquetofbuttons.be/en and it should pop right up. Btw I translate everything it isn’t a google translate thing.

Enjoy 2015 and I hope our paths will cross a ton of times!

Thank you!!!

B-day cards

// Thank you so much for all your lovely cards! It really made my day! And my little niece was blown away by the amount of cards “Wow auntie! You have so many friends!” And it really feels that way. I had a blast checking out all of your cards with her. The pretty cards, the nice words. I really love it how everybody -literally everybody- made an effort to write a few lovely words. Nobody wrote only these words “happy birthday, I hope you have a great day”. That made me really happy!  These cards will find their home in my -nearly finished- sewing room.

Thank you so much for all the cards!!! I’m really blown away by the responce. You made my birthday into a great day!

By the way, I will announce the winner of the give away in a few days. I decided to wait just a bit more. Maybe sombody’s card is arriving a tiny but too late. It would be sad if that person wouldn’t be able to participate in the give away because the post is -maybe-running slow.
