Mother day card

Hi peeps,

Mother’s day is approaching fast again. Here is one of my mother’s day cards. I made this one for the mother of one of my colleagues. I used some punch art for the creation of the flower, can you find the punch I used? Yep, the good old owl punch it is! I used it for both the flower and its petals.

IMG_8378I ended up by adding some stickels to the inside borders of the flower to give the card some sparkle. My colleague seemed to love this card when I brought it at the office, so I hope you like it too! IMG_8383See ya later!

Purple amethyst wire necklace

Hi everyone,

Today I share with you part of an I got for Christmas. This necklace and earrings are made of silver pleated copper wire, real amethyst chips and swarovski crystals. It took me a while before the inspiration came, but luckily, I had some time to think about it. And then, one day, when I was sitting in the sofa, it just came to me. I immediately made it, and I was really happy with how it turned out! Hope you like it too…

For my Valentine princess

Today a valentine card and poem for this little girl I had to leave behind in Canada, so far away… I miss you!

This is for you Leno (and you too Johanne):

IMG_8810_A best friend is the one
who you can talk to when no one is around
A best friend is the one
who you can love when everyone else has let you down
A best friend is the one
who you can tell everything to when no one else wants to listen
I am here for you through thick and thin
I am here for you
… forever

Miracle bead bracelet

Hi everyone,

Today I’ll share with you a bracelet I made in no time. I just had the inspiration and it came out of my fingers as if I had made it so many times already. It is made of the real Japanese miracle beads, swarovski pearls and antiqued silver pleated “swirly” beads and spacers. I made it for a friend of mine at work, and I know she likes the beautiful toggle clasps, so I added one of those. I think she likes it too…

Merry Monday #91 {Snowman or Snow People}

Hi everyone,

I am have finally been sitting at my scrap-table doing some stamping JUST FOR ME, JUST FOR FUN! Love it. No, I did not completely clean up my scraproom yet (see scraproom desaster), but I’ll get to it (I’ll show you, that’s a promise!). As you know, I love playing along with challenge blogs (although I hardly find time to stamp, photograph and post before the challenge closes), so I thought to give it a try at Merry Monday today (last week). You should really hop over there and take a look at what the design team put together! The challenge is was to use a Snowman or Snow People on our Christmas project. So this is what I came up with.

IMG_8810 I bought this little snowman just before Christmas but did not get to use it! Terrible don’t you think!? But lucky me at Merry Monday they make Christmas projects all year long… :) Thus I got it inked up and here it is! However, as I am linking this up far too late (as usual), I can’t participate in the challenge anymore :s … Maybe next time!

Malachite wire wrapped bracelet

Hi everyone,

The bracelet I want to share today has been made before summer, but did not make the pictures and write the post to show it to you. Oh yes, life is not getting easier and time is still not strehing (althoug I would love it to!). This bracelet is made of imitation malachite beads which are wrapped in silver plated copper wire. I made another version of this one earlier, you can find it over here: pink stone wire wrapped bracelet.

Scraproom Desaster

Happy New Year!!!! All the best wishes to all of you…

I will be starting the new year by sharing my scraproom with you (more like a junk room if you ask me). I hope this will motivate me to get it cleaned up in the coming days! Indeed, with the high amount of Christmas orders I had, I did not find the time to make some order during/after crafting. Both my paper scrapping and my jewelry making sides have been overwhelmed with craft materials. However, the festivities are over now and the new orders for 2014 are emergeing already, so it’s time to get over with this mess. See for yourself:

Stamping side (I had to put away crafting-stuff on the ground to be able to make a picture!):

photo 1 Jewelry making side (I even invaded this side with my heatgun as I did’t have enough space left on the other side :s ):

photo 2Central island (where everything comes together: papercrafting, knitting, sewing, jewelry making, etc… A real mess too):

photo 3

When I asked my friend how much time it would take me to get this cleaned up, he estimated a approximately 1,5 hours. I estimate more something like 5 hours. What do you think? I’ll keep you posted!

Have fun to those of you who are still enjoying the holidays, and heads up for those who started working again! I’ll start digging in my mess to get you a nice “cleaned up” image soon!
