Another Swap

Barbara and I did a trade, i send her some of the owl beads i sell on Etsy, and she is sending me some of her fabulous mushrooms...She received her beads and look what she did with them, isn't that a "hoot"?

For our Tree and more sewing...

I bought some more decorations for the tree, some felt ornaments, and some wooden mooses and trees too, in the picture there is also the lavender bag i got from Erna.

I also sew some more matryoshka dolls and a few gnome tissuecovers. They are in my Etsy.

November Giveaway!!!

I am participating in a swap where you had to send a cookie cutter and a recipe. Since it is alsmost Sinterklaas (5 december) and the Dutch like to eat Speculaas around this time of the year I decided to send a real dutch kind of a cutter. It is a wooden speculaas board and it works like a stamp. With that I send a bag of speculaas spices and ofcourse the speculaas recipe. I thought it would be nice to give this package away on my blog too...

So what do you need to do to win this speculaaspackage? Leave me a message and tell me what you like about this time of the year and your favourite occupation..
I will draw a name and announce the winner on saturday november 22....

Fall Market

I went to a fall market at a elementary school because i read on the Blij als mij blog that Erna was going to be there with her handmade products, i got these terrific christmas tree decorations, there are wooden stars, cute birdies and felt balls, dont you just love the colour?
I said hello to Erna and she gave me a lavender bag also in red and white, wasn't that sweet of her?

Matryoshka dolls

I made these dolls two weeks ago, my husband took the camera to work so i did not get a chance to show these dolls earlier, glad he did not delete the pictures...

Mushroom love

For a Mushroom swap i hosted and participated in I received this great swap from Anamari from Finland. She made me a mushroom key-ring, a notebook, a handcarved stamp and some tiny handpainted wooden mushrooms. I absolute love what she sent me, I am crazy about white on red polkadots so that is why i love mushrooms!!!
