Here to stay

yesterday we could finally pick up the portraits Dorine Latenstein made of our boys. we had a nice drink near the fireplace and they played with the playmobil of her daughter. i love her work and we are very happy with the paintings, she definitely managed to capture them. it was great to see her interact with jilles and stije, she was very comforting with them.

6 years

I almost forgot to show you the treat we made for the children in his class and the teachers. I bought the little clown heads at the haagse markt, a very multi culti market I love to go..for the teachers I made a little bag with apple chips, very healthy ;-))

new little ones

I've been quite busy with jilles his birthday, which was really fun! in between I also found time to make new bags for my shop. I discovered that I can't force the making of them but the embroideries become a bag or cushion or whatever by themselves, I only have to make them.
so these little ones (and big ones of course) just came into existance..

kitchen princess

I'm not a kitchen princess, never have been and probably never will be. but I like baking and I could use a new apron, so I made this one out of a piece of fabric I printed a long time ago (the piece with the leaves). I didn't use a pattern, but it turned out just fine. I realize the apron has a christmas look, but I didn't mean to do so..

almost six

jilles will turn six next week. so time to hand out the invitations for his birthday party. I really like to figure out how to make an exciting invitation. Jilles loved them and couldn't wait to give them to his friends (the boys have to blow up the balloon and let it explode to find out their invitation). I recently bought this nice viking stamp from Sandra Monat. I love her work and it made it so easy to make this invitation.

new live

I like to recycle. with a lottery for a good cause we won this scarf a long time ago at a fair of stije's daycare. it's a perfect scarf for stije besides the advertisement of a beer brand. this post of lightbluegrey gave me the idea to give the scarf a new live. I cut of the logo and sewed the ends in the color of the lining of his jacket. I think the makers of the scarf are not happy with my little project but otherwise we wouldn't have used it.
