Sea, beach and a nice suprice for me!

Hi everyone,

A short message from me. Short because it is tooooooo hot. My study/crafting room is right under the roof of our house and with the current weather like a sauna. I just can't be here too long.

I won a really cool writing paperset at http://su-pyo.blogspot.nl/ and guess what she has two other writing sets in her second give away!! So go check it out and leave a comment :)

To escape the heat we went to the beach. And this is the clearest the weather was the whole day, at one point there was no sun at all and it became cold, well too cold for bikini wear. At home it's really hot again but well we had some cooling....Here are some pictures.
Beach / strand

Dunes / Duinen
It was sooo cold, or I just didn't bring any warm clothes, so I bought this sweater. I really like it, the color is perfect and I'm gona use it a lot!

Till next time,

Love Susan

Knutselen met m'n nichtje - Crafting with my niece

Long time no message but I had a good reason! My niece has stayed with us. We have been crafting  for 3 days. Paint, Fimo clay etc all in the living room, we've had a blast!
Here is what she made, with some help from me. I couldn't have done a better job. And she's only 11!!
She made the cover and pages from old cerialboxes. The bead are made from Fimo Clay which she made also.

Although she made a lot of beads herself, the seals where a bit too difficult so they're made by me.

I got the idea from Jennibellie The making of the book (the way of sewing it together, the way to use beads and pockets) she has a lovely blog so visit her some times!!

Love Susan
