This is something I've always wanted to learn (along with knitting).I've been planning on teaching myself via YouTubevideo's, but somehow I haven't found the time to actually do it...

On Rebekka's blog I saw a button which says "Haakles" (Crocheslessons). That spiked my interest, so I clicked.
The button links to Miekes blog, to a new section in which she'll post crocheting-lessons!
I'm reaaaaallly happy with that!

So tomorrow I'm going shopping for the supplies I need, and I'm going to follow Mieke's lessons!

I've scrolled through Mieke's blog (not really read it, but just looked at the pictures) and there's more cool stuff on there... It is in Dutch though, but Google-translater should help with that, if you can't read Dutch (I've seen that I have some readers from other countries than Holland :-D)



PS: I love comments, don't be a stranger if you happen to read my ramblings...!

Last time I told you I was planning on making a gift for my materrnity help.
Well, I finished it last Tuesday and mailed it to her, together with two Delfts Blond mugs.
(Helma, if you read this and don't want to know what the mugs cost, don't click the link! ;-P)
Today she told me she got her gifts (and she loved them), so now I can show you what I made her.

I had quite a hard time packing it, since it turned out so great, I really didn't want to give it away...
Just joking....!
But I do love the result. It seems my scrapinspiration is back, because lots of other ideas are floating around in my head...!

For this project I used only October Afternoon papers, Report Card and Seaside to be precise. I love this brand and if my inspiration is truly back, I need to get some more ! ! !

Embellishments are: Creamotion, Amarican Crafts, Maya Road, Tim Holtz, Pink Paisley, Bo Bunny, Making Memories, Luxe Designs and Xenos.

I hope I'll have more to show soon, but for now I'm just trying to find a routine which allows me to be creative and maybe do some posts on more random stuff...



PS: For some reason, I can't seem to get the lay out for this post right...
I gave up and this is how it turned out...
I decided to just go with it!
