please meet: m a n i fold

first of all, thank you so much for the nice comments on my last post.
they really made my day!

and then, I have a little announcement to make:
after dreaming of my own etsy shop for so long I decided to just try it while I had the time,
and I opened one a few weeks ago: m a n i fold

I don't quite know where this is heading yet,
but I'm glad to have something to do, and I really enjoy thinking about
product photography and presentation, and maybe a few new products very soon.

I've listed a few things that I made for myself or for friends before
and that I wear a lot, thinking that maybe other people would like them too.
There are also a few japanese craft books and some vintage shoes. Here are some pictures:

  7. Hey! I only just found your blog, but I included one of your necklaces in a round up I did a week or so ago, love them!

  8. everyone:
    thanks so much for the kind words!
    I'm often a bit shy to show my own work, so this means a lot to me!

    celine: no job yet, have been looking for about a month now but things are slooow. but I'm trying to be positive about it, hence the shop...
    nyc is really nice so far, I think I prefer the city to London, but I miss my London friends so much!

    celine, mary, fiona: yes, the knitted necklaces are great for winter, they're nice and soft and make you look good lounging and napping on the sofa...

    maaret: das waren leider die fast allerletzten reste von den stoffen, ich bereue immer noch dass ich nicht mehr davon gekauft hab!

  9. oh, was für neuigkeiten! gratuliere!
    witzig: in den letzten tagen denke auch ich an etsy! bin immer noch nicht überzeugt, ob das die mühe wert wäre.. aber.. du gehst mit gutem beispiel voran ;) war es schwierig - das einrichten?
    liebe grüße!

  10. sehr schöne sachen, vor allem die ketten sind wunderschön :)
    wünsche dir viel erfolg mit dem shop!
