Sandra Monet is the amazing creative mind behind Herzensart. Living in a small village near Cologne and sharing a studio with a sheep(!) called Friederike, Sandra created this fantastic collection of Textile and mixed media art objects.

"These creations are made for the child in all of us".

I really do suggest you hop over to the Herzensart website and have a really good look through.. here's a snippet:

And here we are, at the end. Wow! I can't believe we have finished our second set! The third set is shaping up nicely. If you know of or make anything you think should be included, just drop me a line to thedesignalphabet{at}yahoo{dot}com...I would love to hear fom you!

I'm not sure if I will get to post anything next week.. I do have things I want to post about, it's just that we are spending the week at my parents house and I'm not sure if their slow internet connection will allow me to put any images up.. but I will see what I can do! If you want us to let you know when a post is up just subscribe (see button at the bottom of the menu on the left).

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by, knowing you visit warms my heart : ) For those of you in NZ and have school children in your life - have a great school holiday break...I hope you get to spend some memorable time with your children... everyone else - thank you!

Oh, and it is the weekend! Have a fabulous weekend everyone..

see you soon! xx

I really enjoy your blog, & as a fellow southern hemisphere resident, it's nice to have that perspective. You've really opened my eyes to all the wonderful design taking place out there. I never would have found all that in amongst the not so nice stuff out there - fantastic job! Keep it up!! ;)
