tutorial to see how it was done again. Oh yes, that easy. The girls now both have one in their bedroom. In white this time. A correction pen was the only white I had on my desk, but it worked out quite well.
our favourite recipe for last. We love the addition of the speculaas spices, extra cardamom and orange peel in the dough. Usually we only bake the plain spice nuts, but this time we followed the complete recipe. With the golden sprinkled chocolate on top the nuts would make a nice Christmas snack for the kids too.
this amazing lamp in her bedroom, but doesn't like it. I thought one day she'll appreciate it, but no, N doesn't want it in her room anymore. So Sinterklaas is going to bring her a new lamp. I found this lampshade in the thriftstore. The fabric on it was lovely, but there were holes in it. A new cover was needed. And that's where my handprinted geo fabric came in. Perfect to add a little pinkishness to her room. It will be placed on a high lamp base. Soon I will put up some of the geo fabric panels for sale in my Etsy-shop.
workshop, where I do my screen printing, two days ago to set a date for printing my holiday cards, they told me that the atelier would close for two months for a re-location. Starting next weekend! My only opportunity to print was yesterday. Stress! I didn't have a design yet. A drawing of our little one saved me. For the first time I did a two colour screen print. Not perfect, but I still love the result. I'm starting to get addicted to screen printing.
the tutorial on Pinterest. It looks quite complicated, but actually isn't. Just follow the steps. The ornament above is made with a sheet of origami paper and a magazine page. I'll be making lots more of these.
totally fantastic leather bag. But some presents have yet to come. To remember the day of this wonderful party we chose to give (sponsored by a lot of guests) ourselves a piece of art. A picture made by Femke Dekkers, who's having an exhibition in the Noordbrabants Museum at the moment. I loved her work right away. Soon we will be going to her studio to pick up the work. The other present will arrive by mail from Italy. I already have two of these wooden geometric pendant necklaces and wear them all the time. I asked hubby and kids for a new one, from the latest series made by Studio Fludd.
