A little kitchen makeover

What a fun, colorful week it has been!! :) We've been living in our apartment for over three years now, and for the past few weeks we've suddenly been in need of some change. Not the 'let's move' kind of change, but the 'let's upgrade' kind of change. 

So I painted the wooden doorposts in our kitchen yellow and did some redecorating!

I absolutely LOVE all these beautiful, pastel colors. Combined with the warm yellow it makes our kitchen a pretty happy place to be right now :)

Next stop: turning a plain old door into a ginourmous magnetic blackboard!!!

Autumn bliss

Every year when summer is about to end, I shudder at the idea of autumn. I don't want the days to get shorter! I don't want it to get colder! I don't want to wear a coat!

Then the leaves change color, I get to wear my snug caps and scarves, and inside the house it's warm and cosy.

It's autumn, baby!!! :)

Let's enjoy it while it lasts :)

Baby steps

What a fun week I've had!! It was filled with cycling trips, shopping sprees and little celebrations (which included the most delicious pie EVER!! :)

And because I even went to the gym this week - and not just once, but TWICE!!! - I decided I deserved a little treat this weekend. 

Yes, dear friends: I was allowed to crochet :)

If you visited this blog before you might remember me mentioning the problems I've had with my neck/shoulders for about 1,5 years now. It has prevented me from crafting, and every time I try to make something I take it too far and end up having pain for weeks... 

But today I took baby steps, and made this :) 

It was soooo hard to stop!! I actually caved and made a second one... but I resisted the urge to make 15 more, so I guess that's progress :)

Plus: no pain!! Which means I can probably make some more this week! YAY!!!! :D


But not too much of course :S Baby steps. BABY STEPS...

The Notebook Makeover

When I saw these cute little house stamps on A Beautiful Mess I couldn't resist! I love little houses, and they make such great stamps :) And the notebook makeover was so cute - I just had to try it myself!

So I took a boring, black notebook...

... and added the cute little houses :) Tah-daaaah!!!!

Love it!! :) Even though I was in pain for over a week after carving out the stamps... :S But maybe that's because I carved out five stamps in two days...

When it comes down to crafting, I just don't know when to stop ;)

Goodbye September... Hello October!

So... I took a little time-out and when I snapped out of it, it was October!!

Goodbye September

Not sure what happened to September... I guess I was busy... not updating my blog and stuff ;)

But it's October now. And I'm back!! :)

PS. To all the people with a spider phobia: sorry for the ginormous spider pic! ;)
