Warm Friends and the Mega Fuchsia Scarf

Hooray, it's time for a new post. And let me tell you, this post is stacked with sweets and goodies!

I've had another perfect day at work in the shop today, although it's Sunday. It was so cold on this November day that I needed a big scarf to keep me warm. In fact, we ALL needed one mega big scarf to keep us warm. Luckily I've just ordered one that came in last week.
A friendly customer took a picture of my colleagues and me wearing the fuchsia pink mega scarf!

Martine, me and Max keeping it warm and cozy..

I'm gonna use this scarf as a XL blanket in my living room.

On my second to last post I forgot to show the most special item inside the box I got from Diane. I totally forgot to take a picture because I put it on my bookshelf at home.. But today I took it with me at work and made this picture:

The fantastic plastic canvas basket from Diane at Craftypod.

So, thank you again Diane for this gem of a pc treasure!

I also got this cute little Spongebob Squarepants softie from Martine:

Can you spot him?

Where's Spongebob hiding?

Spongebob Squarepants, my favorite cartoon guy!

And here's a picture I took of Martine at work, at her most serious that is..

Martine ready to serve some customers :) (she's gonna hate me for this)

"Can I help you?"

She's so much fun to work with that she deserved a little space on my blog.

Ok, what did I made this week? Let's see, first of all there was this big heart made with more than 300 Swarovski chrystals.

And a easy way to make a necklace without spending too much money and time. Because we all know that time is precious. And each of these necklaces is made in less than one hour.

All you need is some thread, some pinch pearls and some pearls.

A few pearls, but great effect

Than I showed Max how to make a comfort doll (this one is for Diane soon) with a few pieces of felt and some thread and two buttons. We named him Crooky, for obvious reasons. Max did the ears and sewed for the first time in her life, I think she should be proud.

We've made a poem about Crooky too, it's in Dutch but I'll try to translate it in English here.
The poem is called "Crooky, waar ben je?" which is "Crooky, where are you?"
And it goes something like this:

When the tides of my eyes bring tears overflowing,
Where is Crooky?
Oh here you are!
When I'm sad because the world is fighting with the sun
Where is Crooky?
Oh there you are!
When I need a moisterizer for my dried up soul,
Where is Crooky?
He's right here with me..

And then, the most beautiful buttons arrived at the shop. I just love them. Look at these pretty round things:

Buttons with a cool ceramic-like finishing

Iron buttons with filigraan patterns.. delicious!

I love my job!

Marcsje is about to come over, so I have to run and clean my appartement a bit because this creative Sunday has left a creative mess..

Bye and remember : Clean up afterwards.


  1. I love Crooky! Cool jewel!

    I like those photos of Martine. I just posted some old buttons I found, but not dressmaker's buttons. They are pins, and I used to wear some of them at a bookstore job. I loved the snarky-employee ones!

    Nice to see a post!

  2. Crooky is too sweet for words!
