7 Years of Luloveshandmade - Thank you!

Hooray, such a pleasure! It's been exactly seven years ago that I published my very first blogpost here on Luloveshandmade.

After having previously written a private blog for my friends after I had moved from Kassel to Berlin, I opened this blog in March 2010 and I was already dreaming big:

"Because I want to become more famous with this blog and since I dream of selling my handmade stuff one day, I deciced to change the name and have also decided on getting a new blog address. (...) You hopefully like my new name, I'm really in love with lu loves handmade and am looking forward feedback. :)" (- written by my slightly younger self 7 years ago)

Awww, how cute, I am melting a little bit right now, because this post is too cute and it triggers so many emotions and memories about those very early days of writing blogposts, about exchanging thoughts and of setting up my DaWanda shop. Good times!

When I wrote this very first Luloveshandmade blogpost, I had ABSOLUTELY no idea what was about to come. I could have never dreamed of all those things that have actually happened.

I met so many exciting people through my blog, some of them have become really close friends, I developed my personal style and skills, tried out many different techniques, I built up a strong creative network, worked for great clients, generated an income with my blog, positioned myself as an expert with topics that I love, learned A LOT and most of all, I had tons of fun.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and for following my creative journey, I am incredibly thankful and appreciate your support and lot!

Big hugs,


  1. Liebe Lu,
    alles alles Liebe zum Bloggeburtstag!
    Und toll, dass wir uns dadurch kennengelernt haben ♥

    Freu mich auf alles, was noch so kommt.

    Ich drück dich ganz doll!
    Alles Liebe,

  2. Happy Birthday :D
    Vielen Dank für deine unzähligen bunte Ideen & Anregungen <3 Ich lese jetzt mittlerweile schon echt lange mit und du & dein Blog waren auch Inspiration für mich vor 5 Jahren meinen eigenen Blog zu gründen! Dich dann in Berlin kennen zu lernen war für mich eine große Freude und ich schätze unsere Freundschaft sehr.

    Bleib bunt & Cheers auf ganz viele weitere Abenteuer <3

  3. Glückwunsch und Happy Birthday! :)


I'm always happy about feedback and about getting to know your opinion! :) Thank you!
