Guest post by Sjoe Sjoe


I'm happy to announce a new guest-writer for Bloesem…her name is Joëlle and ever since she was a little child her family loved to call her Sjoe Sjoe. She is a designer in Amsterdam, specialized in designing products, fashion, prints and concepts. And lucky to work for HEMA (you know everyone's most loved shop in the Netherlands)…she started a very nice blog and the coming weeks she will share some of her great finds with us on Wednesdays…Welcome Sjoe Sjoe!

Today Joëlle  starts with a introducing us to the talented  Laura McCafferty…


One of my favourite artists is Laura McCafferty. I would love to have one of her art pieces on my wall! By seeing her fun fabric art I really get inspired! Every now and then Laura pops up in all kinds of musea all over the world. I saw a great exhibition of her in Bath Fashion Museum last year. 


After her graduation in 2003 Laura became pretty successful. She makes beautiful mixes of line drawings, fabric appliques, screen-prints and hand-stitches. With her work she shows, on a very humorous way, the ordinary life of ordinary people.

    Every one remembers that humen’s life is expensive, but we require cash for various issues and not every one earns big sums money. Thence to receive fast loan and just student loan would be a right solution.
