Have You Heard About...

31 07 2014

Great.ly?

It is a new ecommerce platform that will leverage the audience of tastemakers to drive sales for the maker economy.

Well - as a maker myself (not on Great.ly though YET - but I am considering...) I have to say: That is a dream come true for every maker!

Because all you want to do as a creative person is to make things.

But in reality - if you create for a living - you can't just be creative.

Or let's say - you have to be very creative in additional 10 jobs to make that dream come true.

You have to be a great salesperson as well. And a media specialist, and a bookkeeper, and an office administrator and organisator, and a nerd and a marketing strategist, and a market analyst and and and...

Puhhh... and all you originally wanted to do is drinking cups of tea and creating neat stuff in your little dreamy backyard workshop studio.

So it's a great thing that Great.ly connects the dots between makers and tastemakers who help to spread the word about creative makers and their products to their audience by creating exclusive boutiques with handpicked items from those makers.

This time, I find myself on the 'other' side by being a tastemaker on Greatl.ly with my own little curated boutique.

If you like Lebenslustiger aesthetics here on my blog or my Pinterest boards, chances are, you'll also like my choosen selection in this boutique.

Take a look and be inspired...

Happy Chinese Year Of The Horse & Some Favorite Etsy Shops

03 02 2014

Horses in winter by lebenslustiger.com

It's the year of the horse now.

Well - I basically do not know anything about the complex Chinese astrology but I am with horses three times a week because of my daughters horseback riding and I do love these animals dearly so the horse year fact caught my attention.

The horse is part of a 12 year cycle of animals that make up the Chinese zodiac. These interact with the five elements: wood, metal, fire, water and earth. This year it's the wood horse. 

I found many differnt interpretations and predictions from various experts what this constellation will mean for us and I liked this one best:

"The horse energy inspires powerful Intuition and an indomitable surge towards freedom in every aspect of life.

Step up and out of any old clutter, stored memories, should-have-dones or regrets. The time to deal with that is over for now."

Sounds nice and promising, right? 

Speaking of nice and promising - here are some more favorite Etsy shops of mine.

It made me really happy to see, that you liked the Etsy shops I linked up a few weeks ago.

- Awesome Boucherouite, Beni Ourain and Azilal rugs

- Beautiful handmade felted clogs 

- Wooden organizers from Austria 

- This natural leather storage tote

- Linen from Latvia 

Enjoy and have a good start into February.

Happy Day,

Old And New Favorites

11 12 2013

I know

Jewelry again.

But it's this time of the year... 

Today I would like to show you a new addition to my shops.

I bought these facetted (two Moonstones are actually smooth as shown on the picture) semiprecious gem drops back in summer but needed time to think about how I wanted to work them into a piece.

I was really longing for a very reduced design, because I wanted the focus to be on the beautiful stone.

So I came up with using just a thin but sturdy grey or brown jewelry thread instead of a chain.

I am wearing mine for 3 months straight now without taking it off and the thread is working great.  

The closure is a simple spring ring and the gem drop is accompanied by tiny facetted metal beads .

The colors shown on the pictures are true to reality and the largest gems (here in my shop) are about 12x9mm. The smaller ones are about 8x5mm and you can find them here in my shop.

I have a few more colors available, so please ask, if you are interested. 

And old favorite of mine are my leather bracelets with the facetted metal beads.

I personally wear the two different designs - the one with the beads running on top (available here) and the other with a rows of beads on each side (available here) or at my Etsy shop.

The closure is a simple knot. 

I never take them off - I shower and bath with them and amazingly they are still absolutely nice. They get even prettier! The natural leather darkens over time.

They are available in natural or dark brown leather with either silver, brass or copper colored metal beads.
