Summer is almost over.......

I wanne thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes.

It was a great day, and you all made it as always better!!
I got two more packages that gave me a big smile.

The first came from Portugal sended by the sweet Nia.
She looked at my Pinterest account and found something to make me.
Loot at what she made me?
A cute pumpkin with a hat, and put all candy in it.. hihihi

So awesome beautifull buttons, ribbon... see the Gorjuss buttons?? awesome so beautifull
Dear Nia, I;m very happy with it and as it soon it Fall ( here the weather already is) I will gave it a beautifull place, thank you so much

Then a few day's later another package come, but this time from France.

I was crocheting on Noah's blanket when the mailman came.
So many gifts an even something for Kira.

Look at all that ♥ ♥
Sweet Valerie, and Super hubby of course, you both made me smile so much. Both made the beautifull frame, Valerie the lovely stitched house, my house, and SuperHubby made the frame more beautifull then it was, 
And I gave it all a place!!
The beautifull calender from Angele, the cute pumpkin from Nia, and the beautifull white gifts from Valerie.
My favorite corner at the moment, and my craft chair is under it!! ♥
Happy me.

Last time I told you Noah was staying with my BIL and SIl.
I can tell you he had a awesome time!
 I just was there Noah went to the Chickens and looked for eggs, its what he did each morning, so he wanted to show me
Kira run to him, and shown me that they had found eggs. Kids where so happy!!!
In the car home Noah asked me that after being home for 4 days he could go back.. isn't he the sweetest ♥

* * * 

I'm busy working on my R2D2 blanket.
I really love it to be finished on Noah's birthday as far as I can.
After crochting some more
And some days we had sun, so I could make some beautifull pic's.

And then this afternoon I reached a big milestone.
I finished 300 squares!!!!!
I'm out off the black yarn, so started making the white around the head as it needs to be a big rectangle.
Tonight I had the night off, every night I have been crocheting like crazy, my fingers need a evening off from the hook.. hihi.. so typing this post as it has been to long ago again.....

* * * 

Let's start talking about cooking.
From my sweet neighbour I got blackbarries, and I wanted to bake a pie with it.
Blackberrie pie.. yum yum, I gave a part too my neighbour she loved it very much.

A few days later she gave me some more.
But this time I wanted to make ice-cream of it. I have a ice-cream maker, and never used it so looked a recipe, put some blackbarries and bananes in it, and yum yum yum
Give your daughter home-made purple ice-cream and your the best mom in the world... hihihi
Hubby told me I need to make ice-cream more often...

* * * 

We are having a strange summer here sun, rain, thunder, pink/purple sky's lightning
But we still have a great time
 Kiting is still the most favorite thing from the kids
Last week we went to the beach, I live near a small one, only 10 minutes drive, I haven't been there in year, but last year they made a beach, so went to there, kids had a great time
Here we where in Valkenburg with my inlaws. Where I live was a whole day sun, where we where no sun the see... only rain...

* * * 
 We are having a new hobby:


Who knows it????? 
As a child I played with it so much, I shown Nia, Rita en Valerie they don't know it, but do you???
 Kira loves it very much she is making much of it, Noah when he is not playing outside or with his Lego also plays with it
 The first horse is finished
Already started with a second horse, But Kira is also making small things, forgot to put the pic's on my laptop.
But I think it will come back more on my bloog.
I remember was I was little used the patterns to make them in to cross stitch patterns and then stitch them.
Next week the vacation is over and school started, I planned to put my attic up side down, so maybe will come across something, who knows

For now I'm ending this long post with a cute picture of Noah who will turn 7 in  few weeks.
My little boy is getting big, and way to fast

I wanna thank everyone for visiting my blog and especially everyone who leaves a comment!!
 I love reading them!!

Happy Birthday to me ♥

Today the 10th of Augst is my birthday.
I turned 31 =O
Yes 31 years already.
What does time go by so fast.
I'm glad for each year and day that I get, but still I don't like getting older because it all goes so fast.
My kids grow so fast, my body is getting fast old. The old years are coming closer and closer, and as I work in a nursing home I know what age does to people. It's not something to look forward too......

But for the moment I enjoy every second of the day.

Today was the first day My family wasn't complete.
Noah is not at home:`) He is having the time of his life at his nephews home.
Maybe some of you remember I have two nephews in Belgium who share my birthday, one turned 5 today, the other 2 yesterday
We celebrated there birthday Yesterday
My nephew of 6 and niece of 3 are not on the picture.
And my SIL asked if Noah could stay over. 
Can you imagine the answer of Noah???
It was a awesome birthday party
As My BIL is a vet and has many animals of his own Kira had the time of her life to, as you know she love horses, and they have two horses, mother and son.

Every time for my nieces and nephews I make a birthday garland. last year when the youngest turned 1 my sewing machine broke down, so the kids and I crafted a paper one, but this year I could finish it off

Now it;'s complete, they all have one.
It's always so fun to do.

This morning Noah called to sing to me with his cousins, and Kira and I sing to our nephew.
Noah told so many story's already, I think when I'm going to pick him up I will get so many story's 
I can't wait

♥ ♥ ♥

Last week I got a package..
What will it be, from who will it be........... 

It's from Angele ( still no blog ) , she was so sweet to sent me the most awesome birthday calender, and a hanger for outside, as you see I already hang it outside.

Dear Angele thank you so much ♥

♥ ♥

Today Hubby went on the roof to fix my sun-problem.
We have dark and light roof plates, but the light above my table lets to much sunlight though, it's to hot in the summer to sit there, so he put a dark one there
Now it's a nicer place to sit in the summer.. Kira was playing a came with my BIL who is here for a week, and as Noah is not home, she has him all to herself

We also baked a cake. a apple-raisin cake, and cooked a yummy diner

~ ♥ ♥ ♥ ~

Kids also made me a special drawing for my birthday
 Noah made me one where he was giving me a cuddle and a kiss
 and Kira draw a party with music
♥There are no better gifts then these!!!!♥

* * * 

At this moment its way way past kids bedtime, but I promessed Kira that in the vacation she could stay up as late as mommy, and we choose today.
We are still watching movie ( and I'm also typing this post ) ( woman power/multi-tasking)
But as I look aside it will not take much longer before she falls asleep.. hihihi

Have a great evening all.
I did not celebrate my birthday this year, but still having a great day!!!

Something old, something new

Hello all,

How are you doing with this summer weather ?
We are loving it very much, We have seen much rain, so now we have a green garden again, and not a brown one like weeks ago.

Yes everythings has a good and bad side.. hihi :))
Last week it was Kids-Vacation-Week here. In the Netherlands we have that in almost every town.
You start with building a hut, and then paint it with all the kids in town togheter
Next to that you can also craft a lot.
here you can see how good the kids where building and painting.
I have so many more pic, also of them crafting. The did a lot with a hammer and nails, paint. But inside a big tent alsp with glue, glitter, colors and so much more.. . you name it. Noah and Kira loved it all, outside crafting and inside.. We also eat there , in the middle a picture of the kids warming there bread on a long BBQ, and when it was good you put something yummy in it.
As you se I was also there. I helped every day, and on the last day I painted the faces of the kids, here I was making a spiderman.. I made many Spidermans.
There was a lot of rain, but the kids had so much fun. they really loved it

~  Something old ~

Back in March I think I made small gifts for Rita's her boys.
She gave birth to a really cute boy, and the older one also needed a gift.
As I lost 6 months of picures ( from okt 2014 till march 2015), I really need to look on all apps and on the web where I shown people what I was making ( thank goodness that I do that). and I found some pic's back.
For the little one I made this cute Giraffe
 I put a little sounds in it

I got this cute picture from Rita, there where very glad with it =))))

Then for the big brother.
I know he likes Jake from teh Neverland pirates.
I didn't had a pattern, but I do had a pattern of a cute basic bear that I could use for it that is standing in my side window
I looked up a great photo of Jake and started to crochet
 and Jake came alive

 Gave him a jacket and done he was. ♥
Isn't he cute???
And all that hair, a real boy toy.
Noah saw it and also wanted one.. 
But mommy as always to busy with a million things, so it hasn't come that far..........

~ something new ~

Kira was playing in her Elsa ( Frozen) dress, and something was missing.
Noah had fun with his old Duplo.
She needed a crown!!!!!
I have pinned so much, but never made one. So the first one crawled on my crochet needle
As you see Kira is very happy with it.
Now she ordered a blue one, with white hair like Elsa....
She has to wait bt before teh end of the year she will have it, as it was on my to-do list for this year.

From 2 pieces of yarn I started to make a summer scraf
with crochet hook 9mm, so really big stitches are it,
It's white with a bit of silver with paillettes.
Don't know if I will like it and wear it, but love the yarn, and otherwise Kira can wear it, when she wanne bee a princes again.. hihihi

I don't have something blue, but I do have something green to show you 

 Here do I sit , my little corner.. where I love to craft

 and look look... I have very very small tomatoes on my very very small plant
