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…]

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…]
