a lot to share


There’s a lot to share at this day… We had some tubulent weeks in the past. My husbands grandmother died 2 weeks ago. She was ill, but it had impact! We are blessed that we know she’s in heaven. She was such a witness of Christ!! even in her last hours!!!!  That’s a comfort for us…

 My own grandmother turned 80 years and we had a surprise party for her!!! Awesome!!! My mom made some coasters with pictures of her on it… When she was 7 years, now and when she was about 18 years old…

Fien turned 6!!! here some pictures of her b’day… Her present was a doll theater!

This was her treat for her class…cupcakes with marshmellowfondant hearts on it and Kawaii style pencills with on top a eraser on it.

New creations….


I recycled my rugby shirt. I did not wear it because it went crowling up. So…. It turned into a sweater for Fien! it’s sooo awesome when she wears it.

I also recycled my old DEPT skirt. It was hard to say goodby to this great wearable skirt, but when wholes are falling in it…So it turned into a bag. I used the reversible bag tutorial by very purple person. I put two inches on the fold, so it went wider
.. Loved it so much that I also made my little sister one for her B’day!

For my vossenjacht swap I made a real dutchy style teacosy… It turned out great I think! i also made other stuff, but that I will show later, but my teacosy I wanted to share with you all.

Knofje blogged about her little bear friends… I could not resist making two cuties!!! There’s a pattern and a great tutorial!!!
