Broesj on the Flow Blog!

Hooray! Yesterday Broesj had her first birthday. One year! I celebrated it by visiting Flavorites Live 2012 and putting a festive banner on the broesj-Facebook page. With some garlands. And today Broesj is featured on the blog from Flow Magazine. What a wonderful way to celebrate this birthday. I am so thankful for this first year. The people who I have met, the stories that I have heard and the brooches I have found. Here is a happy Broesj lady.  


DIY: Craft Fair Stand

The first time me and Broesj were on a craft fair was in the beginning of april 2012. I was very (very!) nervous because I had never done a craft show as a visitor in my life. Oh my… So I searched and searched for lovely craft display examples. And boy did I find some lovely stands. With those in mind I created my own little spot. inspired by all of these: source 1 | source¬†2¬†| source 3 Check out my Pinterest board for more craft fair stand inspiration.

Packaging the first wholesale order

Recently I got a super nice e-mail from a shop in Groningen. They wanted to sell my brooches! WOW that was such a nice message to receive. So on a rainy monday I packaged twenty brooches to be shipped to Groningen. On monday’s I sometime work at home, so the packiging took place in the living room. What a mess ;) I included a small envelop with some business cards. As Sas always says ‘the more confetti the better’. So I decorated the envelop with some small confetti (stickers). Fun!
