DIY – Fabric covered jars

DIY - Fabric covered jars

I have a whole bunch of jars with different shapes and sizes standing here without being used. I have used them in the past in the kitchen for pasta, sugar and flour. But I think it is ultimately better to have jars who look the same. I also had a pot with an advertising message on it. Not very nice to display in the kitchen. It seemed like a good idea to cover them with fabric. Now they are super cute jars who earn a spot in the kitchen!

DIY – 'Gold' confetti planters

DIY - gold confetti planters DIY - gold confetti planters

I was asked by Buzzfeed to make a DIY with confetti. Super fun of course! I decided to make something with gold confetti. By adding an additional layer of matte Mod Podge the structure looks a little bit like gold leaf. I think it’s a nice contrast with the white terracotta planters!

Look for the full description of this DIY on Buzzfeed! XO Wilma

Recipe – Sun-dried tomatoes

sun-dried tomatoes recipe

Sundried tomatoes are delicious in for example a salad or pasta. I usually buy them, but because I had some tomatoes lying around I decided to make them myself this time. They taste great and much better than the sun-dried tomatoes from the store. The oil where you save them in is given a wonderfully aromatic flavor and is also delicious  for a salad dressing or you could use it for dipping bread. Maybe a focaccia bread?

DIY – Triangle cover notebook

DIY - notebook triangle cover

Since Rens has been born, we’ve been taking a lot more pictures. We don’t want to miss anything and remember everything. He is growing so fast! Some clothes that were too large when he was just born, now no longer fit. Of course these pictures would be great  in an album but sometimes you just want to do something different. Besides, It’s always nice to have something from Rens with me! That’s why I made this cute notebook. I could have chosen one great photo as a cover but instead I chose a beautiful collage of triangles. A super simple but fun project!

Personal – My sweet boy

Rens 2samen

My life has changed a lot since I became a mommy. Rens is the sweetest  little guy that I can imagine and I’m so proud! But also super in love with him. Much more than I could imagine. And I think that’s the biggest change: that overwhelming mother feeling. Every television program about the relationship between parent and child makes me cry. I thought I knew how it would feel to be a mommy but it is so much more than I could ever imagine. And by that I only mean the positive, I really would not want anything else!

I’m also super curious about his character. Will he be a rascal, is he musical, creative? And what color will his eyes be? I can’t wait, but at the same time I don’t want him to grow up too fast because he is so cute and small right now! XO Wilma

DIY – Recycled gift card becomes geometric triangle necklace

DIY - recycled pass becomes geometric triangle necklace

My boyfriend was busy cleaning the closet and ran into some cards. Of course they were all cards we never use. That’s probably why they are in a closet. He wanted to throw them all away, but I thought I could make something fun out of it. In the past I have made guitar picks, ​so I knew that they are fairly easy to cut with ordinary kitchen scissors. This gave me the idea to make a necklace with it. With a little nail polish you can give the plastic any color you want. So let your imagination run wild!

Read on  to see how you can make this geometrical triangle necklace out of a recycled gift card. . .
