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? [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
Last year I made some Sinterklaas DIY decorations for the first time, in Black and white styling. You can find the Blog about the styling here. It’s always such a nice time, specially since I have a little son myself. Lars is now 3 years old and he is starting to like it a lot. For this year I also wanted to make some nice things. Ideas enough, only less time. For a couple of weeks I’m working on my master thesis again, and this takes so much time. So I only made two new things, black painted clogs and two pepper nut glass jars with Sinterklaas and Piet glued on it. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
