Le café de maman…
I’m Ellie and I welcome you here in this small creative place. I am a Pinterest Virtual Assistant and Repeat Pattern Designer. I also create different kinds of handmade artwork including apparel, abstract painting and ink art or fibre art. My love is DESiGN and anything visual, calm interiors, photography, ceramics, soft colour shades and botanicals.
……… And you know what else I really love? These quirky kind of artistic places that you possibly wouldn’t even know about unless you lived local. Intimate cafés to have a blind date with a book (Do you know this? It’s genius!). Cafés where cats walk around, fresh flowers stand on the table and you pay what you believe the food is worth. Places for aspiring musicians to play and try homemade bakery. That’s my inspiration. It is why I called this site ‘a mum’s café’. A place to share inspiring projects and art work.
Apart from creating, designing and working as a Pinterest VA I like to sit in coffee shops with my laptop and make all kinds of magic happen. And here is for anyone who loves such places too.
Le café de maman is..
Neutral oatmeal shades and french grey… silver charm… lavender blue… pearl and egg shell ivory… milk white and alpaca… scotch mist… winter mood.
Cozy and warm.
A place to come and relax. And work. And play.
Place to share inspiration.
I am a mum like many others.
Some days overwhelmed with joy, some I better hide the bags under my eyes behind a book or a laptop screen. That’s called baby teething. Or toddler’s twos.
But I found how much can be soothed by creativity.
I like to share what I’ve learned. And stay iNSPiRED & create.
To work I like to wear a pair of chunky knit socks or leg warmers.
I like the candlelight. And the look of a lit Christmas tree in a dark room.
And my boy.
And our cat.
Welcome to our little creative place.
