Christmas recap

Hi Everybody!

I hope y'all had a holly jolly christmas with your friends and family.

Here's a small selection of the things that I've completed the last few days and weeks.

These 3 snowmen were presents for my mum, godmother and SIL. I made them out of clay pots, styrophor balls, paint, wooden beads and a small amount of ribbon. The eyes were out of wacky eyes but they could also be painted like the mouth.

Probably you know this one from the Dreamworks movies "How to Train Your Dragon". Yes, it's he himself: Toothless the Dragon. I made him for a friend, who had his birthday a few days before christmas. He absolutly loves dragons in all versions.
And this nice guy was finished at the last minute of christmas 2014. I found the pattern on december 25th and immediately decided to crochet him. He was finished at December 26th in the late evening.

Incidentally, I've knitted several pairs of socks and crafted some other odds and ends (which I haven't photographed) for christmas.

A VW-Bulli for Mr. Heart

Hi Y'all!

A few weeks ago I saw this pattern over at Ravelry. Because I know that Mr. Heart loves the van's from VW I asked if I should do one for him. Of course he liked it and wanted to have one. So I sharpened my crochet hook and started the project. Here's what came out.

Hope you'll have a calm third advent.

Homemade hot chocolate mix

Hi Y'all!

This year I had a special surprise for my colleagues and dear friends on St. Nicholas. Once again I was inspired by Pinterest. 

I made a Hot Chocolate Mix on my own. I filled it into jars and attached how-to-do's and small fake-fir branch.
Because I have a little more colleagues, I have made a "few" of these little presents.

I think they liked it. Hope you had a happy St. Nicholas-Day (if you know this tradition) and a nice 2nd Advent.
