sandrine’s show and tell

sandrine means craft queen in french. okay, it doesn’t but after seeing the bunch of stuff she sent me – all crafted from ikea items – i am inclined to think that way. i am especially taken by the tindra candle collages. aren’t they just so fun?

she says, “my name is sandrine. i live in nantes, france and i do things like these…

the pillow hanna (can’t find the link on ikea’s website) is transformed into an owl, using fabric (tissues), some wool and buttons. on one side is the first name of the girl to whom it was intended.

    Hi there

    Being French i can add some info on here. I’d just like to add that the cool thing about the way she personalized the candles is that she personalized accordingly to the recipient’s taste…she coordinated the colors of the candles to people’s living rooms and the collage for some are pictures of their kids, or inspired by the 60s or 70s for some friends. Some are Moroccan inspired, or have fish on it for a fisherman..

    i love how she took something so neutral and gave it a “custom feeling”
