Swirling Quotes

This post is inspired by my fellow Dutch blogger Malou from Made by Malou. I did make some posts on quotes in the past, see this one and this one. Today I have some new quotes for you and I hope like they inspire you to be the best you can and not to doubt yourself.

The first quote is my all time favourite quote. I love the quote and the movie from which this quote is taken, The Moulin Rouge.

This picture I took when I was on a romantic trip with my boyfriend in Paris.

Cape Obsession

The last few months I have been obsessed with Capes!  
I am not sure why but for some reason I think they look chic and would really 
suit my style. I have been looking in stores for a cape but till now I haven't
found 1 I really like and that is affordable...But the search continues, 
just like my search for the perfect biker boots (see this post), I still haven't 
found the right shoes... I did find these boots (not really bikery, but I am not 
sure if they are really me because to the brown cow skin... 
What do you think... They are on sale for only € 39!!! My friend Amy from 
Amy's Fashion Scrapbook would sooo advise me to get them! Because they this 
is a case of "When in doubt: Buy it!".

So here is my perfect cap selection! 

Cape Obsession

Which one is your favourite?! I really like the "red" one, but this is also 
the most expensive one.... And do you have an obsession? 
Please tell me what it is!

To Dublin and Beyond!

Here is a little story about me and a road trip. In the first week of January me and my little brother went on a road trip that brought us to Calais, Holyhead and Dublin. The goal was to drop my little bro off in Dublin where started a new job.

Here is my photo diary:

Holyhead is where we stayed the first night to take the ferry to Dublin.

Here is a short overview of what we did and see in Dublin. Of course we visited the Guiness brewery, an absolute must.

Just outside Dublin, about a 45 minute drive is the beautiful valley of Glendalough. Lived this place it was like you were back in time.

Since my brother works there I am sure I will go and visit this beautiful town and country more often! Does anyone has one tips for my next visit?

2013 Craft(botic) Challenge

A Challenge?! Yes that is that the title of this post is! And this challenge sound pretty awesome! If you are a regular reader you might know that I am not that good at sticking to challenges.... I once tried the photo-a-day challenge... during which you had to take a photo of an item (which was mentioned on the blog) and post it.... half way the month I forgot to take the pics... and I just stopped.... If you also remember I said I would participate with the weekly OH, How Pinteresting item... couldn't keep up with this either...

But a new year has started so it is time to make new resolutions right?! The thing about this challenge if that you only have to do 1 item per month! So you have 4 weeks and weekends to make something. And I like making things and think of making things.... to sit behind my sewing machine and see how you create something. So will I keep up... I think so!

This is what the challenge consists of:

So for January we have to make something of leftovers! And boy do I have leftovers... My first thought was to use my fabric leftovers, but of course you can use anything you like; paper, flowers, fabric, wood, food! Anything you like!

And here is the first item of the challenge: I made a Tissue Case! I did use a tutorial so I am not sure if that is cheating... so please don't Rosie from Craftbotic the host of this challenge! The tutorial I used is from Very Purple Person. And to be honest I quite like the result! It is very easy to make, useful and you don't need a lot of fabric.

Well if you want to join in on the fun, it is easy! No signing up, just crafting!
