Well now 2017, actually you weren’t half bad ;)

Dear readers, I would really like to thank you for supporting visual strands and all our inspiring contributors here and over on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (if you’re new to visuals strands: welcome!). We wouldn’t be here without you. 2018 will be all about finding new inspiring things for you to read and look at, forging new paths, making new connections and collaborating. All the things we love.

And do keep your inspiring comments, ideas and collaborations coming!

Enjoy your holidays and have a fabulous New Years Eve, however you’re celebrating (Mario and I are looking forward to long evenings eating lovely food, watching too many films with cats and blankets on laps. All very classy =^x^=), and hope to see you (again) in 2018!

Oh and in case you were wondering: our Christmas decorations are from Dille & Kamille, one of my favorite shops (not sponsored ;)) Bye for now!
