A few days ago I showed you a few of my favorite macrame wall art pieces on Etsy. I also told you that I would love to learn some macrame. Well, I found some great 70’s craft books at the thrift store! Oh, I love those old fashioned books…

The first book (the orange one) features LOTS of different crafts. Macrame is just one of them. But it was the first one I found and I love all the inspiration I get out of this book. I’m definitely going to look for more vintage craft books in the thrift stores from now one!

I didn’t had the time to really read the books at the thrift store, so I just took a quick look inside and decide based on that if I took the books home or not. The second book had because of that a little surprise. It looked if halfway the book there was a complete second book about macrame. It had it’s own front page, it’s own table of contents and so on. There are many tutorials on the macrame basics plus some great projects (like the wall hanging above). I love this book the most of the two!

Don’t you just love those old fashioned pictures and crafts?ย XO Wilma

DIY- Memory book

diy memory book

I’m kind of chaotic.ย OK, you can leave that ‘kind of’ part out. I always say that it’s the downside of being creative, so I have an excuse, but it can be a real pain. For my boyfriend because of the mess I leave behind and for myself because my memory is just as chaotic as my home. The problem is that when I think of things I want to make for this blog, I’m not always able to create it at that moment. It’s impossible actually because I have so many ideas. When I do have the time I can only remember that I had a great idea. Yeah, really sad.. That’s why I decided that I needed a little memory book. In this book I can write down an draw every DIY I can think of. Of course my memory book itself should be a DIY too. So here it is!
