But since DH took my car keys, we are stuck at the house, so the boys wanted to make cookies, and this is the result:
I think the ice crystal cookies look fantastic, and the taste as good as they look. Another thing we tried, was the cookie christmas tree:

But today the snow was still there and it looked gorgeous. The kids had a great time on this last day of school. Holidays, here we come...

The book was given to me by a cousin of Niels. She saw it in a local store and thought of me... I don´t know if that is a complement, but OK, I will take it as one. She had so much fun reading it in the store that she couldn´t resist buying it for me.
So I will reward her by making a cross stitch project out of the book for her.
In the biggest one, was my order of Holiday baking supplies. I will attempt to make the christmas tree in cookies... Will let you know how that worked out, and also some cupcake supplies for the christmas coffee. Will show you teh result.

This morning at 5.45 all three woke up to play with their toys, so I was very happy that my MIL went todwnstairs with them so I could sleep a bit more.
We also visited the newest member of the family. DH´s cousing had a baby girls, so we had a quick peek at her, but the is a stunning little lady, Evenline.
This afternoon we drove back home and the boys kept asking to put up the tree. And since Sinterklaas had went back home to Spain, DH went out with the boys (it was already dark) to get the tree from our garden, and I think it is gorgeous. This is the third year we get him inside, and he keeps growing, so I hope he lives long and gives us much more happy holidays.

This morning we had a tree planting event here in our community. All the kids that were born in 2008 got a three in a newly planted arboretum. So, Ruben got his own tree planted by me. DH stayed at a distance, since the place was very muddy and he was the only one not wearing rubber boots. Unfortunetaly I fogot my camera...
But there was a clown that made these balloons for the boys.

And the ghost family is also adorable, I think. Love her work. And I am all inspired again to try to make some new clay items. Maybe this weekend, after our visit to Sinterklaas...

Yesterday I had a day off work and I visited my friend Evelyn. We had some nice lunch and did some shatting. And since she also likes to craft, we did some fimo clay projects. I think they turned out well.

So that is why I am placing a mushroom artsy craft, made by ´The Art and Craft of Mimi Kirchner´. She sells these tiny worlds and I just love them. They are so detailed, really nice work.

These are called Apple and Pumpkin Pocket Pie Molds. I especially like the apple one, since you can use it all year.
These are called Fall Forest Pie Cutters

The deer are to shy and don´t normally come close to people, but we had an exception, see the pciture below.
And offcourse, the pretzel could not be missed, this is a sweet one, so it tasted a lot nicer that the salty ones. We also visited Cochem and I got a present, two nice tableclothes for Christmas, one white with red cross stitch figurines and one red and white checkered with red deer on top of it, very nice, I will have a nicely decorated table with christmas.

The smaller ones I threw in the garden for our squirrel who is is also stashing nuts and stuff in our garden. Every morning I see him/her frantically stuffing stuff in the ground, knowing that he/she will never find them again... funny, and our garden gets planted with all sorts of stuff.

I made this siccor fob (is that what you call it?) for a swap I am doing. I think it worked out fine, the size is OK and I like the rose fabrics. So I hope my swap partner also likes it.
And the post before this was my 300th post, so will Vintage Violet from Maximum rabbit designs contact me with her address? I will send you a nice something for my 300th post. Congratulations.

Saturday they got married and the bride looked fantastic, so did the groom. We had a lovely time having brunch with the newly weds and later at night at diner and the evening party.
We wish you all the best, Evelyn and Jeroen.
At the end of the evening the groom gave me a big present and this was what was inside...
All things mushroom, I just love them all, aren ´t they lovely?
The bracelet I bought myself two weeks ago from Mukkepuk, I love the combination red/white and Delfts blauw. So I had to show it off in this picture.

If you have the opportunity, you should see it, it is amazing to see the technique that is necessary to make the dinosaurs move. The babies in the beginning are cute and it must be hard for kids to understand they they are robots and not real animals.
The show is really worth watching and OK, it was a lot of money, but I am glad we got tickets. ANd no I didn´t use a flsah to make this pictures. I know that that is very annoying, so I used the night scenen mode of my camer, no flash.
And now, we only have to convince son #2 that the T-rex is not real...
