DIY: Plastic animals on mason jars! Recycling is fun!

What to do with empty jam jars (mason jars) ? Paint the lids and glue a plastic animals on top!

DIY: Cakestand!

I've had this idea since forever.. handmade cakestands are everywhere on Pinterest and craft blogs!
It also makes a great and fairly cheap birthday present. You can easily make one for about €4 and you can customize it in any way you want!

DIY: Hogwarts acceptance letter

Were you one of those kids who had been waiting impatiently for her(/his) 11th birthday?
And did you then find out there was no snowy owl flying your way with a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter written by the hand of Minerva McGonagall especially for you? And then not even a surprise visit from Hagrid to apologize that your letter never arrived?
I would be devastated, too.

Oh how I love I heard about it for the first time a few months ago in one of Kandee Johnson's videos.
She was wearing a very cute t-shirt from in her video and I instantly went and checked it out!

DIY great gift-idea : Personal Quote Eyechart

It's my granddad's birthday this monday the 17th of June and I wanted to make something special for him but since my health is killing me and my back doesn't allow me to stand up or sit for longer than half an hour, I tried to find something I could do lying down.. not easy, believe me!

But yesterday I found the perfect DIY; A Do-it-yourself eyetest with a personal quote instead of just letters. It's not hard at all and it only takes up about 10-20 minutes.

Summer trend: all things neon!

Neon is the way to go this summer.
Shops are bulking with neon-colored clothes and accessories, but not only your wardrobe should be neon-touched.. even your furniture and home-decoration look a lot better with a hint of fluorescence!

Belated birthday gift and my new art wall !

Hey there! Have you noticed my new lay-out? I customized my website a little and added two tabs (pages), added Social Media-widgets and I created a logo I can finish my posts with! What do you think?

Now what I wanted to write about was that yesterday... I received another birthdaygift! A little late, but apparently there was a problem with the shipment. This present is the one I got from my sister, Barbara and her boyfriend, Jens.

"lullaby of birdland" by my dad                     Middle: one of my paintings                                    Right: gift from B&J from

Ecosi - Eco jewellery by Julie Wyckmans

A few days ago I came across an Instagram-picture that a friend of mine posted. The picture showed a hand with four really special rings on each (thumb not included) finger.
Then I realized what was so special about these rings, they are made of Nespresso capsules!
This is such a great idea. Recycling at its best!
And the colors of these coffee-capsules are really pretty and very suitable for your brightest and most cheerful summer ensemble.

New hair - slight ombré!

"What is it called - ombre or ombré ?" is what I was thinking all the time at the hairdresser.
I thought it was Ombre which means "Shadow" in french. Ombré means "Shadowed".
Apparently, all the hairdressers say "Ombré" so .. "Ombré" it is.

Pure Farah - Wordpress

Yesterday, I met this really really nice girl called Farah who happened to be a blogger too.
She is super-interesting so visiting her blog is totally worth your time!
