Card : Sew

Twenty year-old Lydia was truely a woman of spirit and
capacity. She was a nurse and had been an employee of the
army for two years when she met Gregory. At 27, Gregory
was the youngest Major ever. He did not agree with the
reasons behind the war they were now fighting in. He had
always believed in humanity but was now extremely
disappointed by what he had witnessed in the recent years.
When Gregory was injured, trying to save the newest member
of his platoon, he was delivered into the care of Lydia.
Lydia hated war. She hated the army too, but she had to take
any work that she could get because the world was now
enveloped in a crisis and the army payed well. Gregory had
to stay in the hospital for quite a while and he and Lydia spent
many an hour enjoying eachother's company and the
conversations about any and every topic that came up in their
heads. By the time Gregory's wounds had healed, the war was
over and both Lydia and Gregory travelled home, to their
families. But not before they exchanged adresses and
immediately the letters began to travel between them. After
a year of writing Gregory asked Lydia to become his wife, and
she happily said "Yes". Alas, i can not tell you that they lived
happily ever after because just days after they celebrated their
wedding, Lydia and Gregory died in an accident whilst travelling
on the night train. As they were asleep when the accident
happened they did not feel pain or fear, and atleast they are
now together in death, for all eternity.

ATC's : Halloween

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday of the year.
I love the colours that are connected to Halloween and
the kind of parties that you can attend. And autumn is
my favorite time of the year :) In the past we have
celebrated Halloween in England and another year we
have celebrated Halloween with a Halloween-diner, that
was so much fun !

Recycle Craft : pincushion

I used this small tin can to make a pincushion.
Other materials are : scrapbooking paper, some
ribbon, some flowers, some pins, a piece of felt
and cushion filling. I think the result is quite
nice and sweetlooking.

creatures that they can build something so fragile without

Recycle Craft : postcard holder

I recycled a fabric softener bottle into this cool looking
postcard holder. Of course you can put other things in it
too, but i wanted to make something for the mail i
recieved that i want to save. If you use bigger bottles
you can make bigger holders, in size up to A4. A nice
detail is that the plastic smells really good :)

Halloween Decoration

I made these Halloween themed buttonflowers. They
are fun to make and look really nice, especially when
you make a nice bunch with different sized flowers.

Look what we found

We found these two wasp-nests in between the walls
of our house. Needless to say they were deserted.

Just look at the craftmanship these small insects have,
simply awesome.

They are fragile like rice paper and weigh next to nothing.

WIP : Pandora-envelopes

I have been working on these envelopes you can use to
give money or a giftcard. I call them Pandora-envelopes
because they look like flat boxes.

Two sheets of scrapbookingpaper gives you four envelopes.

The ones i showed you here have to be finished. They
already have the glittered edges, but they need a bit
more flair so to say.
