Goal for 2014 : Craft a hole in my stash !

vrijdag 31 mei 2013


Recently, i have seen this bird for the second time in
my life. This bird called Putter (European Goldfinch /
Stillits). It is a beautiful, colourful bird that usually
lives in the woods, therefor it is unusual to meet it
in towns and cities.

Lunch at Walong

My best friend Jenifer celebrated her birthday

Dim Sum restaurant in the area. The food was
great and we had lots of fun !

Grunge Daisies

This craft is one you either can do with circles cut out of
scraps of paper or with circles cut out of "new" paper.
One thing i found is that the daisies become prettier when
you use a thicker sort of paper of a light cardstock. You can
choose to add glitter (glue) to the edges of the flowerpetals or
not. In my opinion the flowerhearts become nicest when using
buttons, i found the use of brads less interesting. All this
is determined by taste of course.

A shy bird

Last weekend we observed a Eurasian Spoonbill
(Lepelaar / Skjestork) during walking. This is a
species breeding from the United Kingdom and
Spain in the west through to Japan, and also in
North Africa. In Europe, only The Netherlands,
Spain, Austria, Hungary and Greece have sizeable
populations. Most birds migrate to the tropics in
winter, with European breeders mainly going to Africa.

There is a man that is always present at the local Christmas market
and he is into branchcrafts. I thought this piglet was the cutest of
all of them, so i had to buy it, for only one euro !
