This and that!

Okay, okay, so I've been lazy. I'm not sure what's going on with me lately but I've been sleeping like crazy and getting nothing done. Well, I'm not really a morning person anyway, I prefer to stay up late into the night. I suppose it's probably when it is most quiet in the house. The fact that the sun is forever on holiday doesn't motivate me much either. However, I am aware of my problem and I'll try to do better. :) I also have bursitis in my right upper arm and shoulder so it can be a little painful at times. I had a cortizone shot a couple of weeks ago which helped but it's still sensitive. Oh well, it shall not stop me from writing and crafting. Speaking of which, let me show you some decos and FBs I've made.

I LOVE how this "Vintage Toys" Deco turned out. It is part of a group swap and I hope my partner will like it.

I also LOVE how this "Vintage Beauties" Deco turned out. It is also off to my partner as part of a group swap.

Another Deco part of a group swap. The theme is "Vintage Couples", perfect for Valentine's Day.

And finally, three FBs I made for another group swap with the theme "Cute Characters at Christmas".
I also received some great mail a couple of weeks ago that I hadn't posted here yet.

A wonderful letter from my pal Stefanie from Switzerland. She also sent some great photos of the crafts she makes.

50 gr. est. FBs as part of a group swap.

Another wonderful letter from my friend Reiko in Japan. She also sent photos which I always love.

A Christmas present from my friend Ria from Trinidad and Tobago.

And finally, a fantastic assortment of Decos from Vanessa. Love them!
Last weekend, Jeffrey, Noah and I went to a Reptile Show. I'm not really a fan of reptiles at all but I must admit I found it quite interesting. It was very educational and fun to see the various reptiles I find creepy and know nothing about. We had our photo taken with crocodiles just for fun.
Jeffrey and Noah.
My baby kittens are growing. They are now 51/2 months old. Mustang is a little plump but so adorable. He now weighs 8,5 pounds. Subaru is so slim and weighs 7,5 pounds. Mustang loves to eat and it shows. They are always so proud of themselves when they learn something new. It's difficult for me to decorate at this point as they love to climb so I have to wait until they learn that certain places are off limits. Do cats ever learn that? Ha! Ha!

Kylie has even gotten a little more tolerant with them. She lets Subaru lie next to her until he starts pestering her.

I recently started a sewing class. Well, I've only been to one class and I am quite excited. The class goes for 10 weeks. We'll be making a sewing bag as a first project and then we choose what we want. I haven't decided what I'll do yet. I was thinking maybe a handbag or dolls' clothes, or...There are so many beautiful sewn things out there. :) I'll be back soon to post my 3rd recipe.


  1. The Fbs you made are awesome! Wish they'll come my way someday :) and I love your cats... they are CUTE!

  3. Hi Jacqueline, how's your arm doing? Hope it is better already. =) Love your decos, and hope to see some sewing soon. I got a sewing machine for X-mas and hope I can make some simple stuff. I am not good at it so I guess I can try some curtains for a starter. =P LOL!

    Miss you letters.
    Hugs Beate
