RAW+BOLD :: new quarterly eBook is now out !

Drum roll:

Let’s start this winter season of giving with::: Esprit d’Hiver [first winter edition]

from my new eBook serie “RAW + BOLD”

56 pages of stylish and quirky minimalist home decor and lifestyle ideas.




Yes ! It is here !

Now ready to be downloaded  {here and here} and enjoyed and tried and experienced and cheered!

I am so thrilled to let you know about my  new eBook serie being launched since Tuesday!

Few nights ago, was the “last “very late night/early morning kind of a day :: Skyping back and forth between Finland and Switzerland to add the finishing touches to the eBook, making sure that the process was smooth and easy.

This eBook serie has been on my mind for many months now. As much I love creating, making, I equally enjoy teaching, passing on my love for minimalist, quirky,  nature-focused, mindful projects to share around the Winter Holiday seasons.

All the 8 projects designed in this Winter edition are easy to make with very little technical skills or materials. It is all about reusing, recycling, incorporating found natural materials. Some involves your children and your friends.




Mind you :: this is not an eBook with 35 projects to make. I have personally nothing against it. I  believe in simplicity and I don’t want  you to feel so much overwhelmed that in the end you may be able to make one only projects out of this thirty-five.

My hope is to  have you enjoy those little moments of togetherness crafting, or solitude busily and merrily making secret gifts or home decor for the Winter season of giving.

I truly hope that you will feel inspired, refreshed, empowered by your own creativity.

Please don’t hesitate to share your own creative projects inspired by this eBook on my Facebook page: here.

I can’t wait to see your creativity bursting!

With love and gratitude,

✚ Fill your tea bag with your beloved loose tea with the help of your funnel.

✚ Finish the tea bag by hand stitching with your embroidery floss the remaining open side.

::TAGS ::

TRIM : cut to your desired size. I trimmed mine to one inch and 3/4 square (4.5cm)

 PAIR : Choose which tags you would like to pair together and glue them back to back “sandwiching” the black tea tag thread in between.

 GIVE : Find a pretty up-cyled mason jar or your preferred recycled box.

With positive thoughts, fill your container with your handmade Thanksgiving Mantra tea bags.

With simple  and natural materials (twigs / acorns / dried leaves / kraft paper / muslin fabric, etc…) decorate your  container.

Un lieu Sur Terre featured in French magazine Viva Deco

I almost forgot to share with you that many of my handmade pillows and some of my paintings were showcased in a french home decor magazine called Viva Deco last month.
Sorry for the really poor quality of the pictures. I am expecting better ones from the journalist and will upload them as soon as she can think about sending them my way…

But in the meantime, here is the article ::

There will not have  a K*itchen K*orner tomorrow ( ahem…a little bit just like last week, if you have noticed…). I have too much work to do in my studio.And get ready for a birthday to soon come ( someone will turn 8 years old on the 20th of December but will celebrate it a bit sooner to make sure friends will actually come…)
Life is also made of choices and priorities, right ? !
