I have a new motto. 'If you can't buy it, make it yourself'! My new crochet skill comes in real handy, I successfully finished two pretty bows.
One for in my hair, and one for on my previously boring coat.
I also tried my hand at making pom pom's. I found it quite difficult. I kept accidentally tearing pieces of tissue paper that needed to stay attached to my pom pom, and they have a bit of a strange shape :), but I like them anyway. It was fun to do!
A while back I spotted a beautiful old type writer on the blog of Yvestown. I instantly craved one, so I turned to our local Ebay, 'Marktplaats'. Imagine my enthusiasm when I spotted one exactly like it! Seeing as I can't make my own old type writer, I figured I was allowed to break my new motto ;) and made an offer.
It's so pretty. It even works, though the ink is a little dry. Joris went crazy with it, wanting to figure everything out and marveling about the technique (that's what you get with a physics teacher I guess).
Know some other cute DIY's for me :)?
