Adding Prinku to Your Home this Season

Home & DIY
5

Love at first sight is the only way to really describe how I feel about the style of Olga Prinku. I was first introduced to Olga when she sent me a very kind email a couple months back asking me about my blog and possibly collaborating. I knew that I was going to be very busy close to the holidays and didn’t want to commit to something (like cleaning, styling, decorating my home) all before the big horrah of the holidays. When I asked Olga if she wanted to style her products in her own home to share with me I was beyond impressed with the outcome.

I think that we are a lot alike, Olga and I, we are both graphic designers and very much enjoy interior design (though she just might be a whole lot more talented then me in that area). Just because I enjoy it doesn’t mean that my home looks like this (ha!). A couple years ago Olga tried to draw from her experience working on layouts for a home styling magazine, while she renovated her own home.

Living in Northern England, Olga took a career break just after she had her little boy, this is when she learned how to crochet and knit. Now that her son is starting school, Olga is seeing if she can turn her craft making into a business. With a passion for working with wool and an incredible creative eye Olga has turned her creations into the most gorgeous home decor items for the holidays.

I’m a trained graphic designer and I used to work on layouts for a home styling magazine. I tried to draw some tips from that experience when my husband and I renovated an old house over the last couple of years, in a little village in northern England. I took a career break from graphic design when we had our little boy, and that’s when I learned how to crochet and knit. Now that he’s starting school, I’m seeing if I can turn my craft making into a business. I especially enjoy working with wool – the chunkier the better! I love to fill the house with tactile, bright-coloured goodies.

  • Real life workouts with our babes. It's not always easy, but it is always worth it.
•
Thanks for joining this workout @roxannredekop

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
•
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
