Vorig jaar heb ik een blog geschreven hoe je zelf een leuke DIY tipi kunt maken. Mijn zoontje Lars is super blij met zijn tipi, alleen we werden helemaal gek van het zakken van de stof aan de bovenkant. Als ik de tipi maar even verplaatste, dan zakte alle stof naar beneden. Daar heb ik uiteindelijk een oplossing voor gevonden, maar tot nu toe nog geen tijd gehad om er iets over te schrijven. Nu lekker vakantie, dus ik dacht laat ik eens een start maken. [Read more…]
Waiting for translation!!
It’s more than half a year ago since I wrote a blog. Time flies, I was so busy with all kind of things and all the time I had some half finished posts for the Blog waiting for me. Like the Teepee pillow for with the teepee that I made last year in october. Next to my two Blogs I also have a job as Business controller for three days in a week and also a webshop for hobbymaterials and beads. Last year I started to move some products from the old wbeshop tot the new site Cottonandcandles. With the old site I had to do all the programming myself and I also didn’t liked the name anymore. That’s why I decided to go for the new site, which gives me much more opportunities, and no more programming myself. But in the end it turned out to be much more work than I thought it would be to move all the 2500 products to the new site. So for the last 4 months I was working on the site. It’s still not finished yet, but it starts to look like something. Next to the beads, I’m also selling yarn to knit or crochet, other hobbymaterials and Sewing stuff. If you want to, you can see it for yourself here You can change the language into English on top of the site, left [Read more…]
!!!Working on the translation!!!
Like a lot of little kids, my son Lars is crazy about tents. So it seems nice to make him a teepee (tipi) tent. After some search on the internet I found a couple examples. Then the search for the perfect fabric started. I knew the teepee shouldn’t be too small, because I could imagine that papa and mama need to play with Larsman in the teepee too. And a big teepee means a lot of fabric, so I wanted not to expansive fabric. And preferabel one that fits on different places in the house. And be great for a boy. Pfew, that made it difficult to find the perfect fabric. [Read more…]
For a few weeks now I’m looking for nice decoraties for the new room of my little boy. We are redecorating his room and I already ordered some furniture for his room.
I try to give his room a little bit of an industrial view, while watching out for not making it a teenage room, since he’s only 2,5 years old.
One of the things that I found is the super nice play rug of H&M. Luckily not with a lot of colors, but nice in black and white. And with a road on it, which is always a good thing, because he’s totally nuts about cars.
As soon as I saw the rug on someones Instagram picture I checked the site of H&M, but the rug was sold out. More than a week I checked the site for a couple of times a day. One time I found the rug, but in seconds it was sold out again. In the mean time I found a mug, a plate, a little schoolboard in Truck form and a dish, all in line of the traffic serie. All these products were also sold out a lot, but by checking the site a lot, I could collect it all. Except for the nice rug.
