Made a layout last night and altered a Prima bottle. Loved doing that!
Right now I'm in the middle of making "Appelflappen" as we call them overhere. It's a tradition to bake them with Old Year's Day. Really, really love them!!
Will show you some later today (yes...that's right...another update...hehe) along with the blog candy you can win! :)
Here are the layout and bottle...
Made it very simple, but used Copics for his body and hair. Love them already!!
Also experimented with them on some Magnolia's and they turned out pretty ok. Maybe a new addiction is born with this, but they are so, and I mean sooooo expensive.
Well... I still like my 36-piece of Derwent Coloursoft pencils a lot. But I mean those colours of the Copics...wow!!
Anyhow...here's the card.
As said before, very simple....
Oh...before I forget... Will give another update later today with some Blog Candy to win :)
Thought you might like to know...
Now I'm off to sleep a bit...

Decorated my Christmastree last Sunday and I so love it again. It has silver with purple ornaments and a Winnie the Pooh as an angel on top of it. Bought it a couple of years ago in London and it's great!
By the way.. my Christmastree is "cat-proof" *lol*. All the ornaments in it are unbreakable, unlike the ornaments I had in it 2 years ago.
My Christmastree in the evening....
My tree by daylight...
I just loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee these ornaments. Had these in my tree as well, but as I have cats, I didn't want them to be in there. These are little ornaments which can't go in a tree, but are home decoration.

Just booked tickets to see Coldplay live in concert on 10th September 2009!!!
I'm so thrilled to go there as I couldn't get any tickets for the last show in Ahoy, which was the best show a colleague of mine saw!
But now I have them here, right here beside me. Can hardly wait for being September 2009.
Only problem...it's on the other side of the Netherlands, so I have to take the next day off..
I can't see any problem here. Trying to get the 14th free as well, so I get a free Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (it's Prinsjesdag and we always have a day off where I live..hehe).
Can you feel my excitement?? *LOL*
OH...and why I wanna see them?? I just love their music, the melodies and stuff. Really theatrical (??). Love it!!

I went to a craftsfair today (only a 20 minute drive by bike for me...) and when I went there it only rained just really minimal, but when I left the fair at about 13.15 it snowed (even though the streets weren't white)!!
Went to the supermarket to buy some to eat and drink, and when I stopped there, I was like a snowgirl...all white, but the streets...still not white until I came out the supermarket!
It was snowing! And I just love it! I really felt happy today when I saw all the snow coming down.
Right now it's raining and there's hardly any snow left, but hee... the weathermen predicted there will be loads of snow tomorrow where I live! *YAHOO!!*
Here's a bit of a "snowimpression"...
This one is taken from my balcony...
These little ones will come out in Spring... some daffodills and "blauw druifjes". I just love how these photos came out with the water on the leaves.

It's a very simple stamped card, but just perfect for her.
Really love the Sarah Kay stamps a lot!! When I was younger I owned a Sarah Kay doll and I think it's still at my parent's attic with my other dolls... not sure though.
And just look at this cutiepatootie...
I was shopping for my work, and I found this awesome keychain at a store. I'm so in love with it. They also had loads more Monchhichi's! Had a Monchhichi when I was younger, so again a sentiment bringing me back to the old times of childhood ;)
Nothing else to tell really.
But.... this weekend there's a craft's fair in Rijswijk and I will be there on Saturday at Tessa's booth. So if you're coming... please say "HI!!" I'd love to meet ya!!
Hope to see you!!

Did some awesome workshops, like the 2 of Karen Burniston (Joker's Wild & Oh Tannenbaum) which are absolutely great!!
Also liked the Poppetology workshop of Lucy a lot!!! Really, really lovely and I will finish this one this weekend.
Also did a workshop by Michelle van Etten. Already followed a workshop of her earlier this year, but this one..uhh... it was great if you didn't do this kind of thing already at home, and I did... so I thought it was ok, but nothing new for me.
Did a workshop with Cheryl Mezzetti (??) and she's a really lovely person. The workshop..uhhhmm... liked it, but not "that".
Had marvelous food all day, and the chocolate cupcakes were jummie!!!
It was so nice to see many people back, including Mary, a really sweet granny from the UK.
Mary... we'll defenately keep in touch! :)
And Lynn... you're always welcome here!!
Thank you all so much for a marvelous, never to forget, day!!
Hopefully we'll be meeting each other real soon again. Love ya!!
Did not take my camera with me, as I had to travel by bike and I already had my tote with me and my cropbag. Seeing myself with another large camerabag wasn't my thing...

I just love October Afternoon paper!! Bought the Christmasline with some stickers... love it!! Specially the paper with the musicnotes.
What do you think about the newest Sassafrass-line?! I love it and can't wait to cut the papers with the gingerbreaddoll on it!
Offcourse I also bought some more..hehe... some cool Christmasstamps, a Cuttlebug embossingfolder, some prima flowers, some Magnolia-stamps (wow!! I still so love them!!), cute ribbons (they were on sale) and cool fabrics (love to make a project with it).
Some more October Afternoonpapers... Weathervane.
I also bought a lot of Bazzill (uhhmmm... I'm a totally obsessed Bazzill-freak *lol*). There was a shop with loads of Bazzill for under 30 cents a paper... that's cheap!!
