first product on Etsy!

Cap sleeve shirt made from a vintage duvet coverHooray! I am ecstatic to announce that I have posted my very first listing on Etsy. It is a shirt made of 100% cotton from a vintage duvet cover. I have worn this piece several times and get TONS of comments. It fits with everything – blue jeans, black pants, skirts. Perfect!

Have a look on Etsy. Pin it on Pinterest. There are only 3 available in this pattern. I plan on making more of this style using the gorgeous Liberty of London fabric.





And we’re back! Well, I am back. Hooray!

After a fabulous (nearly) year painting in my studio, I moved with my family to Mozambique for 6 months and therefore had to give up my studio space. Mozambiqe was also fabulous! What an amazing country! Beautiful people, beautiful landscapes. We’ve now been back in Amsterdam for 6 months and my need to create has recently been exploding. So, I have a new goal. CREATE! I’ve been making lamps, bracelets, shirts, re-styling sweaters, etc. I’ve also started knitting recently. It’s wonderful to be using my hands again to create.

My new goal: continue creating and share it.

My hope: that you will enjoy it as well

Let me reintroduce myself. I am Meghann. Mom of two crazy little kiddle diddles: Tipp & Loula. Wife of sweet, supportive Koen. I’m American born and raised and became Dutch by marriage. I live in a wonderful neighborhood in Amsterdam that feels like a cozy little village. Life is good here.

My plan is to focus more of my time and energy on making beautiful, functional creations of high quality that will speak to people. Whether that be a shirt or a dress, a lamp or a bag, for adults or children. It’s all part of my sharing myself. It’s halfmoonamsterdam. I’ll write about functional living in small spaces under a “living on 60” category. I’ll write about experiences as a mother and creations for children under “tipp&loula”.

I intend to blog about more than what I make. I want to talk about what inspires me, and I’d love to hear about what inspires you!

Here’s to new beginnings.
