To show you all how is the easiest way to close the iPad/Kindle case in Limabaum´s Dawanda shop I made a video for you. Please have in mind I was holding the camera with one hand and filming with the other, it is much easier to open it up if you have your both hands holding the case.
I hope I can help the clients that bought the case to handle it better. I could not upload the video straight to the blog (sorry, I will fix that!), so please take a look into Limabaum´s Facebook page, here:
there is this new scarf in the Limabaum Dawanda shop, and I would like to add some more photos as there I just can upload 4 of them, but I had some more possibilities to show you how to use this scarf.
It is a long one (1,60m sewed in a tube) x 72cm wide. As you can see there are many different ways to use it. Have a look (please, double click on the photos to see them big):
you can use it also as a shawl crossed in the front:
or in the back side:
or as a necklace:
in the Indian way:
here how the fabric looks like, it is transparent (durchsichtig), light but warm for cool spring evenings:
thank you if you came to here from Dawanda site
here is the link for the scarf in my shop. Enjoy!
I wish you all a wonderful new year, full of good surprises, peace and love.
Thanks to all the clients of Limabaum shop, you gave me a huge reason to be glad and happy with my work, and always to have challenges to surpass, and doing so continue to grow little by little, like life should be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
this melancholic song brings me back somehow to childhood, maybe the climbing tree scene, or the deep root idea of home on my mind.
Its Christmas time! And I invite all of you to participate in a giveaway by Limabaum´s Facebook page. All you need to do is “like” Limabaum in Facebook and tell me in a message there which is your favorite Limabaum product in Limabaum Dawanda shop (see link in the side bar). I will maybe add that product you choose from the shop too to the parcel I will send completely for free (for you) around Christmas time. What you can win for sure is a iPad case from the photos bellow! I will give all names in a hat and my daughter N. will pick up the winner (you can see a video with the winner´s name on 15/12/2011 here and in Facebook). Come and play along! If you do not have an iPad, you could also use the case for bringing books inside your handbag without having their pages all messed up. I hope you enjoy it!
This wonderful book came to our hands in a Flohmarkt in Baden (Austria) and I was amazed with the quantity and the beauty of the embroidery works on it. Also the book gives more space to embroidery and lace, there are also good amount of knitting and crochet, and many other different kinds of needlework. A little bit about the author that I found out in the net:
“Thérèse Maria Josepha von Dillmont was born in 1846 and studied in Vienna at an embroidery school founded by the Empress Marie-Therese. After completing her schooling, she moved to Donarch, a village near Mulhouse, France, and founded her own embroidery school at a time when most aristocratic women confined their embroidery to salons and boudoirs.
The success of Dillmont´s school in Mulhouse led to shops bearing her name in Vienna, Paris, London and Berlin. A true pioneer of needlework, she traveled extensively, studied needlework in many countries, and collected hundreds of pieces of outstanding embroidery.”
How exciting! And how nice she let part of her knowledge to us so we can try this beautiful needlework, a loud “VIVA” for Thérèse!
Today´s shop update brought a new model to Limabaum in Dawanda, and I would like to add some more photos here, so you can see more of the new case. It´s a linen + cotton one, with a lovely pattern of Birds and flowers on it.
It has a beautiful vintage button on it, from a pre-plastic material. Feel free if you have any question, please just contact me!
I am using this case myself the last weeks, and it is 100% approved! It is good for travelling long time with your kindle (you can “plug” a zipper case in to bring the cables along), or just for the day-by-day carrying it around from home to work, university, park, train, etc, when you do not need the cables around – the battery from the kindle last days! – so you just disconnect the zipper case from the main body and the whole case is lighter to carry around.
This from the photos are mine, although I could make one more like this one, but the zipper from the small cable case would be in black colour.
if you would like to have more details, please have a look here.
Almost all the Smartphone cases at Limabaum´s Dawanda shop can become a Kangaroo case for Kindle or iPad (1 or 2), please have a look here for other fabric/pattern choices.
I hope you´ll like the new model like I do!
It is also possible to make a Smartphone case with the same Owl pattern, please send me a message at Dawanda if you would like to have one to match with your kindle case, like mine on the photo bellow.
so proud of a land that listen their people! and that looks with responsibility into future. proud, proud, proud! a big VIVA to Germany!
we all should press our politicians to try to stop the building of new nuclear power stations, and start to think what to do with the hundreds that already exist in the world. “we are dealing with diabolical energy”, says the scientist about what is going on in Japan right now on the video below. I can not stop thinking on them, I love Japanese culture and feel so sorry for them! And I feel very sorry for all human beings that exist, and that will exist one day. It seems we are poisoning the world right now. Listening this woman speaking about what is going on over there, I ask myself why such silence on the other newspapers and television? We should be talking about it without stop right now, and trying to agree in a position to avoid that new catastrophes like those 2 (Chernobyl and Fukushima) come out again, and I guess this is only possible if we avoid to use nuclear power. Even if we would have to change our way of living. We should better really think about all this stuff and not just pretend nothing is happening right now.
