Memo box - Take note

I´ve found this super cute memo box at Bellas and I had to make a box myself. I´ve changed a little bit the measurements (from cm into inches) and added a satin ribbon to lift the stack of paper. This makes it easier to grab a piece of paper.

Goodie bags with Snowman Soup

 Yesterday I´ve made 20 of these Goodie bags for the children of my bible-group. We were invited by my friends, the italian "Missionaries of the Immaculate - Father Kolbe". Tiziana made plenty of her gorgeous pizzas for us and we had a wonderful evening, eating pizza and playing Bingo. Before going home the children got the Snowman soup and they were so happy about it !

 This weekend my sister and I had much fun. In fact I´m renovating some rooms in our house and she was baking cupcakes. Some days before we both had seen this funny youtube video with Kiefer Sutherland, alias Jack Bauer baking cupcakes!

So, when my sister was busy doing cupcakes I came into the kitchen with my power drill and asked if she needed my help. We almost died laughing. So here are the last ones...

Maybe they don´t look as georgeous as Mr Bauer´s Dynamite cupcakes, but hey... they really tasted terrifically good ! (She added some Black Forest kirsch...)

Christmas cards in summer ???

It´s obviously not the right season for christmas cards, but hey... I had these ideas in my head and so I´ve decided to make these cards... in summer :-D

 My sister crocheted this star. Please don´t ask me how she did it because I don´t know at all how to crochet... so, I´m very thankful that she crocheted some of these fabulous stars for me to use it for making christmas cards. She´s the best !

This card is in fact a waterfall-card and I´m preparing a video for it.

What about frogs... ?

I´ve got this frog punch from Fiskars... isn´t it cute ?!

I´m baaaack... after quite a long time !!! My new project was inspired by the American supernatural thriller "Touch" by Tim Kring starring Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz. I definitely love that serie and the story behind, based on a chinese legend of an invisible red string of fate that connects people all over the world, no matter the place, circumstances or time. I´ve made an album with the legend and lots of little feet connected to each other.
