I've been putting to much weight on my shoulders lately and in combination with the typical Dutch cold weather I can tell you, I've been feeling better...
Nothing to complain about, but I just need to take some time to relax. So today I'm taking it easy :)
I've been trying to crochet lately and I wanted to share my first projects with you:
I'm so proud of myself, if I may say so :) I never crocheted before!
My mom helped me to get started and after trying a few cupcakes I figured it out!
Am I getting old, because I love the crochet in front of the tv in the evening?
Now I want to create some little dogs and I saw a lovely Hello Kitty.
And after seeing this..... I love to make some of these cuties as well.....
Past Saturday my brothers girlfriend turned 20. She loves the little Me to You bears, so I made her a card with this cute Popcorn stamp. I borrowed it from the Twins (tnx girls!) and colored it with Distress Ink.
I know the design isn't spectacular, but the stamp is cute :)
Saturday I gave the workshop School & More over at Paper&Pictures. We've created a mini using October Afternoon 'Report Card' papers and we created an old fashioned blackboard to store the album in. We had a great time!
My album is about the workshops I joined as a student and the foreign teachers I've met.
When were together with the papergirlz last week I asked Ingrid and Hanneke how they make the beautiful bows on their cards. They pointed out a youtube video for me and I'm hooked ever since. Trying to fold the perfect bow myself.
While doing so I discoverd this other video of Dawn McVey, where she's creating this lovely flower. So I grabbed my old book paper and punched out a flower myself:
Thanks ladies for the inspiration, I really needed it to give my mojo a boost! Suddenly I feel creative again!
