Last year I wrote for my Blog Cakesandpumps.com already a post about this nice DIY to paint spray Mason Jars or Weck pots and to use them as pots for pencils and other office stuff. Or for cooking stuff. in the mean time my atelier is a little bit more finished and I could definitely use some new pots for my pencils and scissors. I like it a lot, since my desk is always full with stuff like pencils and markers that I should really put into a jar or something. So to keep it a little bit more clean I could really use this to clean my desk a little bit. Haha does that sound familiar to you too, then you should try this DIY. It’s an easy thing to do, the waiting for the paint to dry takes much more time than the DIY itself. [Read more…]
A couple of weeks ago I bought this beautiful teapot Theo from Stelton. A real beauty and it was on my wishlist for some time now;-)
The teapot is black, altough it looks a little bit more like dark grey. On the inside the teapot is made of ceramics and on the outside is a layer of cast-iron finish. [Read more…]
Sinterklaas is out of the country, so Sunday I moved all the Sint decorations to our attic and started the search for our Christmas decorations. We haven’t bought the tree yet, we want to buy one in our little village. I really love the period right before Christmas and Christmas itself. All the beautiful lights, the Christmas trees in different sizes and Christmas decorations. But what Ilike the most is making my own DIY Christmas decorations. Every year I try to make something new for our Christmas collection, an overview of the Christmas DIY projects that I made for this Blog can you find here. For this year the first project is already finished, a little car with a Christmas tree on the roof. You see them a lot on Instagram, but I still like them. And they are very easy to make.

No one could have missed that Sinterklaas, the Dutch child legend is back in town. My sun Lars starts to realise who Sinterklaas is. Last week he still called him a gnome, because of his big white beard I guess, but since the Sint has landed, he really became Sinterklaas. Super nice to see him so enthousiast about the good old man, and mama is even more enthousiastic;-).
Finally I have a reason to decorate the house with nice Sinterklaas decoration, although I don’t have a lot of time. At the end of october my colleges at Nyenrode started again (next to my normal job) and I’ve been working on my Master thesis proposal for a couple of weeks now. But it’s so nice to make a few little DIY projects and I do need a break sometimes. So I made a couple of things for the Sinterklaas styling in our house. [Read more…]
