About Atelier Oursonne
My name is Ursula and I am the creative head and body behind Atelier Oursonne.
I was born in Austria and after 18 years of overlooking Lake Constance I moved to Vienna to study and work, with a short intermezzo as language assistant in France. In 2007 my then boyfriend and I moved to London.
9 years, a wedding, three births and lots of interesting and amazing encounters with lots of inspiring and lovely people , we have finally moved back to Vienna,where I am still trying to settle back in.
Around the same time I wanted to turn my love of crafting into something more serious and so I founded my own little business – Atelier Oursonne. I did shut down the business officially when we moved back to Austria but finally, after 2 years, I have just refounded it here in Austria.
Ursula is Latin for young / little (female) bear and Oursonne is the French equivalent. As a former French teacher I like to have a little connection to the most neglected of my three home countries.
The main purpose of this blog is to entertain my readers with little (and not so little) storys about my crafting adventures with the occasional more serious information or even tutorial thrown in.
I have started this blog half way through my London based life and therefore I have chosen English as blog language.
