Purse – wishbag crochet pattern

A while ago I had a friend who needed to be sheered up a bit.  She needed some luck.  On Ravelry I vout the pattern of Shana at the Chris and Shana’s craft shack.
Shana made a little bag that could be used to wrap presents in.  So cute!
I made the bag even smaller and made it into a wishbag.  A little purse you can wear around your neck with your dearest wish inside, to wear close to your heart!

When the wishbag was finished, I gave it to my friend and posted a picture in my Ravelry gallery. Shana liked it and asked if she could use my picture as a featured picture.  I felt honored, so I said she could.
I asked her if I could translate the pattern into Dutch and post in on my own blog.  She like the idea, but I never go round to it.
Today the tiny wishbag fits the prompt of the linkparty, so I made the time to translate it – finally! 😉

Print a travel journal for your kids to fill in.

Print a travel journal for your kids to fill in.

When you travel, pictures will help you to capture the beautiful moments. Although, pictures just don’t capture ‘being there’ if you ask me. To be able to remember more, to keep the little things in mind it is a good idea to write things you eat and places you visit down into a travel journal.

I created a travel journal printable for kids. It is very easy to use.
It has a ‘pasport’ and they can circle the weather of the day. They can tell what they ate. How did they travel and how long was their journey?

Print a travel journal

These printables can be printed and glued in little A5 booklets.  I chose spirals, just because that works better when the kids have to color and write in them.
The Passport has to be printed out just once.
The other pages can be printed as many times as needed.  When your journey takes ten days, just print them out ten times.

Hope you have lots of fun traveling and using this free printable

Take care and see you soon

Challenge 7: Welcome

No DIY today!?  Why?
Well, I wanted to share something I made for my godchild for a while and this fits the prompt so well I kept it until today!
The parents asked me to paint a wall painting on the cute pink babyroom.
And that’s something I loved to do!  So I started this summer an finished a few weeks ago.  Today it’s time to share!
It’s a ‘Welcome to the world little girl’ present from me to my godchild 🙂

Next week’s prompt is ‘dress up’

That one should be easier, no?

Challenge 5: Shadow

This week is somewhat the opposite of last week.  So many party creativity was shared and now we are in the dark shadows!
But shadow can be so beautiful.  It can make or break you drawing or your picture.
Silhouettes are a sort of shadows.  That’s where I got my inspiration for this week.
On Pinterest you often come accross those lego figure heads made of glass jars.  I wanted to do something like this, but with a twist.
That’s how I got to this Star Wars DIY decoration.

Star Wars DIY decoration

Supplies Star Wars DIY decoration

  • Small, empty glass jars – (Yes, think ecological!)
  • Glass paint
  • detergent
  • Acrylic paint
  • Brushes
  • Protection for your table
  • Template of the lego star wars figures: free download at I Am Momma.
  • Cutter machine *
  • Black stickers to cut with the cutter**
    * Or a friend who lend you the cutter.
    ** Or a leftover from the same friend who lend you the cutter machine 😉 (That’s what friends are for!)

Step by step Star Wars DIY decoration

  1. Wash the labels off the jar.
  2. Degrease the inside of the jar
  3. Put a little glass paint into the jar, close the lid and shake so the paint can spread.
  4. Let it dry
  5. Stick the cut out figures on the outside
  6. Repeat all the above steps for the next jar
  7. Paint the third jar with acrylic paint, but make sure you mix it with some detergent.  The paint will stick better!
  8. Let it dry
  9. Draw the face with a black permanent marker on the jar.
  10. You can use the transparant Star Wars DIY decoration as candle holders.  Beware, with children you better use battery candles.
