DIY: branche hanger

While browsing Pinterest (I’m an addict, you can follow me here), I stumbled upon a great picture by Sarah of Smitten Studio. Sarah made an eucalyptus hanger which functions as the perfect substitute for any mundane art-above-the-couch piece and the minute I saw it I wanted to replicate the exact thing. The only problem was that I needed a smaller size, so in the end I’ve tweaked it a little bit to match the size of the wall I had in mind for it. And I only used materials that I had still left, so the end result is a bit different than

On the wish list for quite some time and yesterday I finally had some time to make one. It is

DIY: minimal calendar 2015

You may have noticed a little less activity on MyDubio (I feel like such a bad blogger!), but I needed some days off. The last week we were very busy working on a new design for MyDubio, so a Christmas break was very welcome. Hopefully the new design will be online next month, in the meantime I will try to blog every day, just like you’re used to :) And speaking about routine: last year was the first year I made a calendar and this year I tweaked it a little bit to make it 2015 proof. A new year,
