Here I'm again

I have been very busy the past week.
I had another try to sell somthing..... on 2 different days.
That also a reason I was so busy, because I was making some new things.
Not all I can show, because one of the new items is also a Sinterklaas gift, but the other things I can show

I made a few more hairpins and boy's cars.
Also tryed out a bow of a hairpin, but that's a work in
I made 6 CUTE cupcakes, I love them so much... and PINK... who wouldn't love them...
I made another Christmas swing, and some Christmas tree hangings And made one more heart.. they are now hanging here, teh white on in my living, teh others on Kira her room

Everybody liked what I made, but nowone bought something :(:(.... oke that a bit of a lie... I sold 2 2 days..) But I had a lot of fun...
The first day I did got a order for a b-day garland, and on the second day a order for my new item..

While sitting there and standig there and sitting again and drinking a lot of tea, especially on the second day because it was so cold, so we drunk a lot of tea to keep warm... 2 euro for a paper cup of hot water... never doing that again... but because of the cold you want it... my botlles of cold water wasn't
The first day I did it togeheter with a colleague of DH who sold jewelry, and on the second day a colleague of mine who sold perfume..
Both days we had a great day... and while being there I crochet a bit on Kira's blanket... you remember that on... it's now a bit larger, 36 granny squares Kira her little hand...=)))))))

Sinterklaas has arrived =))))

Today Sinterklaas has arrived with his boat in the Netherlands.
For the new followers I try to explain what Sinterklaas is

Sinterklaas (Sint Nicolaas) is an old and very friendly man (just like Santa Claus). We celebrate his B-day on 5th of December (in Belgium on the 6th).
Sinterklaas has many helpers they are called Zwarte Piet (zwart = black, they have black faces).
Every year he comes with his boat half off November from Spain where he lives.
He has a big book, with al the childrens names in it, and there is written if you where a sweet and good child. If so, he comes on the night of 5 December with his Horse Americo on the rooftops together with the Zwarte pieten, to put gifts in the chimney.
He likes to give instead of receiving gifts for his Birthday.
From the time that he arrives till 5 December he can recive all the lists that the Children sent him with what they like to get.
Also in this time he visits al the towns and city's, here he will come in two weeks.
In the week before you can put your shoe before the chimney our backdoor, if you put a carrot or sugur cubes for Americo, you will get a little gift or Sinterklaas candy, also you can put drawing and all kinds of things and you wish list in your show..
In many growsery stores you also can put your shoe also on schools

It's a Holiday expecially for children and so much fun... Still I love it..
The not so nice thing about it is, that when children get around 8 year, they will find out that Sinterklaas is not real, and that's not so great, but still you can enjoy it then in a other way by making gits for each other and make it in a surprise.

For me the most fun thing is ... I can make my own decoration... lol
Yesterday I got it all from the attic, and I have little bit a Sinterklaas house

From the things I made last year I made photo's, here they come

On the left you see my felten Zwarte Pieten, they are now hanging in my front window, the paper craft are hanging on Noah his window, and I made those little gifts and carrots.

With Sinterklaas we also have many yummy yummy candy, and one of it is pepernoten or also called kruidnoten... they are so yummy.
I made a wreath with it last your, put al the pepernoten on it with glue, and as you can see it survived

And this is how it's on my table
It's a bit boring, but I hope to change that.

I have not much to show.. I'm busy making Sinterklaas gifts for my nephew's and Noah and Kira.. After Sinterklaas I can show them to you... so be patient, It's worth it =))))

I have one little pic to show... I made 3 more hearts with crochet On the 6th of Decemer Sinterklaas will go back to spain and then it's time for the Christmas decoration... so a lot more to show then..
Have a great week, I need to work alot so not much time to craft

We are now busy counting the days till Sinterklaas will give us gifts... we are very sweet

Here Noah stripes the

Who know's is the word in this post

I hope you all had a great Halloween, I had to work, and the kids are a bit to small.. but Maybe next year we celebrate it to... who knows ;)

I made some more pumpkins just in time... this almost needs to make room for the next Holiday Sinterklaas (Sint Nicolaas) and then Christmas, but first pumpkins, mushrooms and a leaf

Aren't they cute... next year I'm going to make more.. I love the patterns.. but maybe in the next weeks also... who knows ;)

Then started already on a Christmas felt craft
I'm not that satisfied with my cutting but that will change I hope... who knows ;P

At the moment it's Kreadoe the biggest hobby fair of the Netherlands.
Yesterday my MIL and I went to it..
We had a great day, we saw a LOT of great and new crafts techniqes, we where having so much fun with looking and talking about it that we didn't get the change to see it all or follow any workshop... So next year we are going back.
At the Kreadoe I also met Saskia and her lovely daughter Dominique.
and I made some gift for themI know saskia her badroom is purple, and Dominique, just got a new bedroom this week and it's red/blue/white and she loves owls, and when I saw this pattern on Ravelry I needed to make it for her. They both loved it so I'm happy ;):):):)
And I;m panning to make more... but who know's :P
I also bought/got lovely crafts from the fairI still didn't had a lamp hanging in my hallway (only a ugly lightbulb) I'm looking for THE lamp for years and I found it on the fair... a craft lamp... which I can change with my mood... lol. I have made pic's with the light on and off.. I can make it in 10 different shapes. I forgot the make a pic of the pieces, but it are 30 pieces... if you google Lampada Romantica you can see a lot of different piece, end with a differnt color lamp in it it will be a different lamp... I LOVE IT!!!!
Also you see a little pic of a box and a scissor.. The box are all kinds of shapes that I can use to decorate my cupcakes, and the scissor is for cutting felt... So I hope my next try will be better with this great new scissor..
Many new ideas, many new things I wanne try.. so who knows =))))

Then I've been making 2 memoboards.. but only have one on a pic.. Kira is sleeping and I forgot to make when when it was done (not completly :() But I have the one of Noah finally on a pic (but this one was done already a few months ago)
But last week we finally hang it up in his room You see it need a lot more crafts... but the start is there... see the cute little airplane.. lol... It was hanging on his lamp but it fell...
This memoboard still need buttons... But that will come with his time.. I'm loving it how it is now.. lol... Also for Kira I need to think about buttons (PINK)..
And I saw so many great patterns yesterday so .... who knows ;):)

That the end of this long post..
