Advent Calendar

 .


So this year is the first year that we are going to use an Advent Calendar.
And not to break the home made plague, me and the girls made everything from scratch, using materials from home, and lots of imagination, next year will be better.






I think they did a great job.
They can't wait for latter to start to see what is in the first pocket....

It looks like i haven't been here for a long time.
Time really runs fast....
But I'm still busy, with knitting, crochet, and doing same sewing....





Some mini necessaries, perfect to use inside the bag, and to keep everything tide.





And this notebook cover that was made with the initial L, for N. to give to her teacher on her birthday.

That's all....

Experience that went bad

.



I've been working with some fabric
Making experiences too
And this what came out of it

 A nice Pencil and Notebook holder
 

I very happy with the results

But, there is always something to annoy me


You See those two pencils out of the holder, yes i didn't made the measure right, and they are out of there "nest" just because they don't fit inside!!!!!
Crappy job that i made.
Although i liked the result, I'm going to make another one, yes i do like to suffer....

A good experience that ended with success
Remember the potholder that i showed, i don't know maybe last month, well they are done finally. And these two goodies ended fine. No mistakes here, duhag!!!!


Back to normal life.
N is back in school, she was in toes to go back, i guess she got tired of seeing mummy watching to many football games on TV :)
And her Teacher, is expecting....
I can see myself doing a lot of goodies for the baby...

To prevent little ones from having a ena!!!!
Or to prevent the slamming door when there are drafts







And here it is in action...




These little pots i bought from a lady that made a lot, but didn't know what to do with them.
I took some, and....
Came back for the next post to see more....

See you all now, now...

Sometimes...

.




Sometimes life just takes a turn, and we just have to go with priorities. It happened here, and the blog post had to stand in hold.

Although I've been making some little things, not much, but with utility for the house.


Started to make some potholders
This is the first one...
Hope to show the pair made in my next post.



Here I'm trying to make a granny blanket with some left overs that are just pile in the house.
Slowly but I'll get there...


And when i said that i was making small things, i wasn't joking.
This was the first attempt to make a bennie for N with the school colors.
But can you imagine, it doesn't fit her head!!!
And it is so ridiculous small that it doesn't fit A head too!!!!
What was i thinking...

Well the second one is on the way, and this time with the proper measures.
Photos to came...

See you now now, i promise...

Notebook Cover

.

So lately, I've been doing some notebook covers.
The first ones that i made was for personnel use.

I'm thinking in making some for sell.

I do think they do look cute, and they just give you that " je ne sais quoi!!!" to your look.




What do my readers think???

Now i think some one is triyng to follow my steps in the craft, or is it just taking photos...

Handmade slippers

.

This morning, while i was reading my reader feeds, i saw this tutorial.
I look at the pictures, i read the explanations, and after so many disasters in making slippers for my girls, i decided to give another try.

That is the reason why they all pure plain, without any decoration.

Now that i got the measures straight, and the easy way to put it together, yes i will do another pair very pink, and with decorations falling to the floor!!!!!

The link is here.

Enjoy

Pillows

.


And the collection is complete

Made some butterfly's, my wish was to make a lot of bugs, but no imagination at this time.
So i think it is really cute.
The recipient liked it so much, that she sleep the all night with the pillow!!!!








And another one.
This one was a request from a friend that wanted to kidnap the flower pillow.
Made some stripes in different color, and voila.
I think it looks very fashion and stylish!!!




In other news, the cigarettes are still here. There are days that i don't smoke, and then there i go again.
I'm so tired of resetting the counter to zeros....
But the idea is here to stay...
Maybe another month...???
