Merry Christmas everyone!

I want to make a Christmas-lantern, but this year I had no time for it. But I made a little scene to wish you all a very merry Christmas (well, I hope it was, as Christmas is almost over now) and a very happy and healthy 2010!
Almost invisible on the photo is the black cat in Christmas spirit (my real cat has other plans with Christmas decorations...).

The little bear was a present of Jody. It's really beautiful. I think I'll make a 'Merry Christmas'-sign with it for my lantern (next year?).

To my surprise I saw that there are six more of you out there following me! I think I need to thank Debbie for mentioning me on her blog! Welcome Lize, Vicky, Dales-Dreams, Susan (Minicrochetmad), Muriel (Le coffre d'Emilie) and Angeles. I don't seem to be able to find a blog of you, Dales_Dreams. If you have one, please let me know. I like to see who you are and what you do!

Bye for now,

After being absent for a while...

Let me show you what I have been doing besides my main activities of sleeping and working lately:
I've made this little gardenbasket with tools, which can hang on the hooks inside the basket. It was the first time that I made something by wickering, and it shows: the thread is too thick and it's far from straight. I should have tried something more easy, I know. I do not like the basket at all. I thought the thread I used would give it a rough, country look, but it's just out of proportion. And what about that stupid handle? I forced myself to finish it, just for the learning process and now I don't know what to do with it. I do love the little scoop, that does meet my need for perfection.
To make myself happy again, I gave myself an easier task: making little perfumebottles out of beads and tiny metal hearts, always fun, always beautiful. To be honest, I do not need any more bottles, I've already made so many of them, more than any vain dollshouse girl could possibly need. But it's just so much fun!
I also have been busy with my Unimat again, being inspired by the things which are made by Birchcraft (http://www.birchcraft.co.uk/). I'm making two keyrings:
This one is 7 cm in lenght. It has been painted blue, and now I want to paint small flowers, bees, butterflies and dragonflies on it. And this is the other one:

More on them coming soon (I hope).

Bye for now,
