30 December 2017 Expansion ribbon roll system

Two weeks ago:

It doesn’t deserve a beautyprize, but it is functional. I can paint the mdf in spring.
At the second photo you can see why I wanted the 6 meter extra ribbon rolls storage space. ??




Not enough ribbon rolls space yet, so I made another rack below the first one.

Now I finally have some space left!

20 October 2017 Ringlight

Waiting until the light is good outside and preferably a shining sun is not always handy. For that reason I have purchased a daylight ring lamp. Taking photos when it suits me and also tutorials and videos are planned.
I am very happy with it! As you can see the lamp gives a lot of light!
(On the first two photos you see the effect under a much less bright daylight lamp.)

The pattern on the ornaments is copied from a photo by one of the Ornament Girl designers.

The pattern on paper is my own 3D flower design.

14 October 2017 My first own design: 3d flower

New!! Beautiful Christmas ornaments that can be used everywhere.


For Mother’s Day I had been fiddling with different ways of folding fabric on a ball. This is where the ornament below came from.

Because it was not entirely to my liking, I fiddled on to the desired result. See second photo!

3 October 2017 Rolling little roses

I recently purchased a Sizzix Big shot. With this die-cutting machine you can, among other things, cut shapes using a die of your choice. It doesn’t matter much which material, almost everything you can imagine.

My goal is to be able to make 3D flowers from fabric that matches the ornament made.

To ensure that these flowers are also sturdy, I treated the cut piece of fabric with a brush and ModPodge Stiffy. Let it dry and roll! While rolling I used the glue gun on the downside of the petals.

25 August 2017 Coco

Just back from vacation we received a message from a very dear lady who we met through the shelter.

She said she had found the perfect match for Debbie.

After some hesitation, because quite quickly, we decided to get acquainted with Coco.

He comes from Spain, but had already traveled to the Netherlands.

After a positive home visit from the Foundation, we drove to Velp near Arnhem today, 5 days after we got home from Austria.

We took Coco to his new home!


Debbie and Coco, match made in heaven ??

21 August 2017 Holiday in Austria

We just got back from a wonderful holiday with, at first, a sad little dog because her little friend died just before leaving. With a lot of attention and love from us she survived the holiday.

Of course I took ornament craft supplies with me. Two red pieces of ribbon short for the snowflake ornament; going to finish at home.

Together with Debbie ♥ ? ♥ lazing by the pool at our favorite campsite. Alpenferienpark Reisach

Spend a day shopping with Grandpa and Grandma in Villach. They stayed a week in the neighborhood. A happy Debbie in the wagon.

A one night stay at Hotel Haussler on our way to Austria. My dear husband with Debbie on the terrace.
