11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Little Purse on: August 30, 2008 03:17:40 AM
I did this purse last week to have a place for my make-up when I'm travelling. And perhaps I'll use it in my new flat as a permanent place for it Wink

12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pucca Cross Stitch on: August 30, 2008 03:00:17 AM
I never did cross stitching before but I found some adorable patterns with Pucca, so I had to give it a try! Here is my first result. I'm not really sure what to do with it... Any suggestions?! Wink

Thank you for looking!
Comments are very welcome Smiley
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Watermelon Potholders on: August 25, 2008 04:37:27 AM
Actually I'm not really into crocheting potholders, but I'll be moving to my first own flat soon, so I decided I'd make everything I can myself. I found this pattern (http://members.aol.com/SAG55/wmelon.html) for these sweet watermelon potholders and I liked the pattern right from the start. In addition to that the wool yarn was pretty cheap ;-)

Thank you for looking & comments are appreciated as always Smiley

15  COOKING / Dessert / Fluffy Puffy Pink Iced Muffins on: June 16, 2008 05:07:26 AM
This morning I decided to bake some brownie-flavoured muffins. They did look good, but I decided to add some frosting. I tried this recipe http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Fluffy-White-Frosting/Detail.aspx and I think it is reaaally gorgeous. I added some red color and orange flavour. It tastes very good in combination with the walnuts and the cinnamon in the brownie-muffins. In the ones without frosting, I put some chocolate-mint sticks. Well well, I hope you like them  Smiley Tell me what you think!

All the different muffins

16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Simple Octopus on: June 15, 2008 08:10:25 AM
This was my very first Amigurumi. I found the pattern in a crocheting book for kids Wink I was a beginner with Amigurumis, so I decided it was the right thing for me and it worked out alright.

Thank you for having a look Smiley
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dressing jar transformed into a Vase on: June 15, 2008 07:57:09 AM
I liked the shape of this dressing jar and decided to transform it into a vase. I just crinkled a bit of red transparent paper and stuffed it into the jar and put the artificial rose in Smiley
It's simple, but for me it does it's job.

I hope you like the idea Smiley
Thank you for looking!
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Wrapped Table on: June 15, 2008 07:52:54 AM
I had this old, really ugly table and I needed a new table for my new living room, so I decided to give the old table a fresh look. I bought some foil which originally was supposed to be a table cloth. Then back at home I took my electric stapler and fixed it under the table. At first I thought that might be visible, but as it's a small coffee table, it is not visible Cheesy Tell me what you think!

Thank you for having a look Smiley
19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Different types of Storage Boxes on: June 15, 2008 07:44:38 AM
I already had a thread with a gift wrapped shoe carton but I had some additional ideas about how to decorate shoe cartons:

For this one I painted the shoe carton black with acrylic paint. Afterwards I cut out the lily motive from a napkin and glued it on the shoe cartons lid. Then I used another sort of napkins and applied them all over the "body" of the carton. When it was dry I applied a used a sealing coat on it.

Here I used acrylic paint again, but in this case I didn't use a sealing coat so the carton stayed matte. Then I made a paper cutout and glued it on the lid. I used a special paper for cutting out which already has a layer of glue on the back, but you could use every kind of paper I guess.

For this one I wrapped the "body" in a leftover piece of wallpaper which I reaaaally like because it has this relief. The lid was acrylic painted in off white and then I glued some cut out napkin pieces on it and used a sealing coat.

I hope you enjoyed having a look Smiley
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Test Tube used as a vase on: June 14, 2008 04:29:12 AM
We had this experiment in chemistry years ago in school which made the bottom of the test tube look like chrome. Luckily we were allowed to take them home with us. and now i used a thick, easy-to-bend wire and wound it round the test tubes. In addition to that I "modified" some artificial roses: I cut the leaves off and glued them higher on the peduncle with a hot glue gun.
Here is one of the test tubes Smiley
