Today I received a shot to feed my magazine addiction… About two weeks ago I saw the Donna Hay kids magazine on the Yvestown blog, and spend a whole evening searching the internet if I could order an issue, but no luck.

I did a lovely christmas themed swap with Marieke from VanMarieke. The beautiful ornaments she has send me got me inspired to start decorating the house, and do some christmas crafting. And right now I’m listening to christmas songs allready, the old ones with Bing Crosby singing.

• My first swap

My first swap

Ooh I’m so happy, yesterday I received my first swap! I swapped with Erna from BlijAlsMij, and look what I received. I love the fabrics, and I can use the paper handkerchiefs cover very well as I have almost always a running nose… To the right you can see a glimpse of some things I made and […]
