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”
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”
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. Continue reading “Sinterklaas DIY ideas 2016 (#DIY)”
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”
Every year I try to make a new DIY for Christmas (see here for an overview of my Christmas DIY projects)
Last year I made this alternative Christmas wreath to hang on a door. Unfortunately I didn’t make pictures during the DIY, but I can tell you what I did to make the wreath.
