Hull to Zeebrugge

Just wanted to share these amazing pictures with you. Last week I took the overnight ferry from Hull (UK) to Zeebrugge (Belgium). At first a bit scary - but what a view! Left with a night view of the harbour in hull and woke up with a morning - sunrise - view of zeebrugge. Very inspiring! Enjoy!

Been Sewing Scrunchies! :)

Just a short update: I've been sewing scrunchies! Hope You like them.. I am very pleased with the results!

This is the first one! First sewed a basic scrunchy with a lovely fabric. Sewed on some lovely buttons. Added some pearls and finished it off with a nice bow.

This is the second one. The basic scrunchy is made out of fleece! Nice and cosy for winter!

Halloween - Make your own pumpkin lantern!

★ Halloween ★

 ✩DIY - How to make a scary pumpkin lantern ✩


Step 1 ❦ Find yourself a nice pumpkin. Its best to give the pumpkin a rinse before starting.

Step 2 ❦ Get your tools ready. Use a sharp knife and a small spoon.

Step 3 ❦ Make an opening in the top of the pumpkin. You can choose - either you can make a round opening or you can make a star shaped opening (just like I did).

Step 4 ❦ empty the pumpkin. Get all the seeds out and cut out an extra layer of the pumpkin (keep it for a nice pumpkin soup!)

Step 5 ❦ Draw a face on the pumpkin. Use erasable ink.

Step 6 ❦ Start cutting out the face with a small sharp knife.

Step 7 ❦ You can create different light intensities and highlight in the face by cutting off some of the top skin layer of the pumpkin. For example, cut of the skin layer of some teeth and the internal eyes.
 You can also add extra features such as a scary scar! 

Step 8 ❦ Clean off the marker. Wait until its dark - OR - if you cant wait to see the result (just like me), find yourself a dark room. Put a candle in the pumpkin and enjoy!

Drift Bottle - iPhone App - Review

★Drift Bottle ★

✩ Go to your beach, type a message, put it into your drift bottle and throw it into the sea! ✩

I've been trying this app for some time now and I must say it is a lot of fun. I first tried out the free version and later switched tot the paid version (0,99$) since it allows you to send pictures. And I've already received several pictures from all over the world.

I've had conversations with random people from all over the world. The app also allowes you the track your message on a map. All very nice!
