After our short stop at Lieblingsstücke we went to visit Sandra of herzensart and Bogi Bell at their wonderful studio at Alte Fabrik in Siegburg.

I had already wanted to visit the studio opening a couple of months ago, but couldn’t make it. So I was really, really happy to finally make it to the open studio days.

I had already seen lots of impressive pictures from their awesome studio on Sandra’s blog and flickr account – and it was even more beautiful and inspiring in real live. And of course it was really great to meet and fun to talk.

I’ve already been a huge fan of Sandra’s fabulous viking “softies” and paper artwork – you can see her love for details in every piece. Everyone who knows my weak spot for speechbubbles can imagine that I’ve been totally in love with her beautiful viking greetingcards set. Thanx so much for giving me those, Sandra! I really think I might have to start a viking wall because I’m too scared to actually write on them :-) BTW you can find these lovely cards on etsy too.

I also loved to see and read about Bogi’s amazing drowning memories installation project and I hope to see more about it on her blog. Just wish I had had more time to talk and take pictures :-) You can find some more impressions from the open studio days on Bogi’s and Sandra’s blog.

And if you ladies are ever in Cologne and have some time, please let me invite you to some cake & coffee!
