Hi :) I just made this post at over at the birds blog and decided to copy it for my readers as well xD I just love restyling things that are old or that you just don't like anymore :) I haven't had the time to make a DIY for you, so instead i've found three DIY's that you make. Beneath every picture i've left a link! You can use your restyled new tin can for pencils, flowers or what ever you like :) Have fun!!
Yesterday my order from the Hennes and Maurits arrived and i'm gonna try these pretties on after i finished blogging :) I hope it all fits! Since my belly is growing i will be needing some new clothes. Since this is a hole new world for me i've chatted with some girlfriends that already had that experience. A lot of stores don't sell mommy clothes, so i'm ordering through the internet (that's also works for me). Since it's still vacation and Harold is also enjoying his free days, i'm not blogging everyday... but enough to keep you busy right ;) We're enjoying spending time together. We don't like planning to much ahead, this way you can have time for sitting in the garden, reading your book, watching a movie and also for spontanious things like walking in the forest, visiting my brother and his girlfriends new house etc
This saturday we have a wedding! I've already bought my outfit in April, a cute purple dress with little white dots from Mexx. Hopefully it still fits xD I'm gonna try them on just, like my new fall clothes... can't wait!! Have a great day ❤
fabulous hoooked zpagetti & you can say i'm hooked too xD
What is zpagetti?
Hooked zpagetti is a kind of yarn that you can use to crochet or knit. The size of the zpagetti is XXL and that's bigger then the normal size of yarn. Because of the size you also need bigger crochet and knitting-needle. Hoooked zpagetti is made from leftovers from the fashion and textile industry. The collection is changing all the time because of the fashion. Most of the wire substance is 95% cotton and 10% elasthaan or lycra. So you can even wash your creations in the washingmachine on a low temperature (put it in a pillowcase).
There are patterns that you can follow, but it's mostly freestyling. The thickniss of the wire substance isn't always the same, so you will have to get started and see how it goes. You can make bags, knit around your puff, vases etc the options are endless...
From time to time i pay a visit to the creative page of Martha Stuart. It's lovely to find such handy ways to stash all your craftsupplies. For today i've selected three great ideas. If you like to see more, look here. Beneath every picture i've made a direct link, this way you don't have to surch ;) Have fun & let me know if you made one of these pretties!
Hi :) We're back from Terschelling & had such a wonderful time! Terschelling is one of the five Dutch islands up in the north of the Netherlands. We just love coming here ❤ It's so relaxed... We park our car on the other side, take the boat and rent a bike for the days that we are spending here. The beach, dunes, moor and forest are close by and you don't have to survive any traffic jams, just take your bike! There are a lot of places where you don't any people at all or just a few. Part of our vacation at Terschelling our good friends Luus & Niek were also her at the island. We were staying close by, so it was easy to hook up xD
Lunch at one of our favorite
beachbars 'De Walvis'
Drinkin' coffee at 'De koffiemolen'
at the 'Zandzeebar'
Niek & Harold
They have a biological garden were you can pick flowers, strawberries, blueberries etc You go out into the fields and pay at such an idyllic gardenhouse! Inside you can buy all kinds of handmade jam & juices there and drink fresh smoothies or a fresh mint tea. We picked our own strawberries, soo yummie! I even bought seeds, so that i can grow some wild flowers in my own garden xD i just adore this place ❤❤❤❤

Even though it's hot and it has been for a while now, i just have to craft. So instead of crafting at the attic i take my things downstairs (have to walk the stairs several times) and sit in the livingroom or outside. I thougth this was the perfect solution, but Harold doesn't like it very much (and i really can imagine). So i try to do small projects and clean afterwards (what i normally don't do at my craftspace), this way i can keep it nice and tidy.
