Adventskalender 2018 goodlives
Ik probeer ieder jaar iets leuk voor kerst te maken. Inmiddels heb ik al een aardige verzameling met DIY kerst projectjes (Find my other Christmas project here) , en voor 2018 wilde ik natuurlijk ook weer iets leuks maken. Een paar weken geleden zag ik bij Minkesthuis op Instagram dat zij echt een super mooie adventskalender gehaakt heeft. Vorig jaar had ze ook al zo’n mooie gemaakt. Toen had ik vanwege mijn scriptie echt helemaal geen tijd. Dit jaar heb ik iets meer tijd en besloten om de adventskalender dit jaar wel te maken. Ik heb eens even goed in mijn wol restanten en in de voorraad van mijn webshop Cottonandcandles gekeken wat ik zou kunnen gebruiken om de adventskalender naar mijn zin te maken.

DIY mini Christmas crib

DIY Christmas Trip for Goodlives interior 2017
After working very hard on my Master Thesis the last couple of weeks, it’s finally finished. At least for me. It’s now at my Thesis supervisor, who promises me a lot, but is not doing what he promises. It’s the first time he is reading something from my Thesis. I asked him several times to read parts. But he didn’t do that. And now the time is there, that I am probably too late to sent my Thesis to Nyenrode, because the deadline is very close.
I’m frustrated about it, because I can’t do anything about it.
Right now I need a little distraction, so I searched for a little Christmas DIY project. And it became a mini Christmas crib. I was looking for one for a while, but most of the time I found them too colorful, or too expensive.
So last week I saw a nice one on Instagram. I searched for a shop, but it was sold out everywhere.
After some more searching I found the wooden dolls, so plans for a DIY are ready. Are you in? Continue reading “DIY mini Christmas crib”

Christmas 2016, a couple of pictures

Christmas 2016 with deers and wood
The year os over so fast this year, less than two weeks and it’s Christmas 2016 already. This year I don’t feel like putting too much Christmas decorations. I always try to make something for Christmas, but I’m a little tired. All the work for my masterthesis cost me a lot of energy.
So i only made a couple corners with Christmas decorations which were easy to pick from the attick or that I bought this year. I you read further you can find some pictures of the Christmas corner in our house for Christmas 2016. Continue reading “Christmas 2016, a couple of pictures”

Alternative Christmas tree on canvas with real christmas decorations

Alternative Christmas tree on canvas DIY on

A few years ago I made an alternative Christmas tree on a wooden plank, with a lot of small Christmas balls and mini Christmas ornaments. I fastened it on the wooden plank with little hooks. I liked it a lot, so decided I wanted to make a bigger one too. Only the bigger one that I had in mind, must be around 200 x 120 cm and that’s really heavy if you want to make it with wood. After Christmas I have to store it until next year and I didn’t like the idea of carrying such a heavy thing to the attic. So I let the idea go for a while. And suddenly this year I had an idea, after a failing attempt of assembling a canvas for a painting idea. Continue reading “Alternative Christmas tree on canvas with real christmas decorations”
