Made me think of you

The prompt of this week is about: made me think of you.
When i read this sense i had to think on the tradition of my mother. Every christmas she make a puzzle with a 1000 pieces. Most of the time a landscape of the mountains and a lake. Only this year she make a puzzle with comic, the drawer is Jan van Haasteren.

This year we took the same tradition and make our first puzzle with 500 and 750 pieces. It's was fun to do.
I'll show you tomorrow a picture of our puzzle.

december decoration tip 2

The second tip for this month is this beautiful skate.
What you need:
* piece of cardboard
* 5 inch square piece of fabric
* sewing machine
* large paper clip
* polyester fiberfill

Draw a shape of a skate on the cardboard and cute it out.
Fold the fabric so that you trace 2 skates in one time.
Cut it out.
Machine sew through both layers of fabric on the traced lines, leaving a straight edge unstitched.
Fill the skate wiht fiberfill and make a hanging loop. Hand-sew trim arount the top of the skate.
Slide a paper clip into the skate at the bottom fold of the blade. If necessary, make a tiny opening with a siccors tip to insert the paper clip.
There you have a little skate.

december decoration tip

This month i will give decoration tip.
The first tip is make your own little lovely tree.

You need pattern paper, straight- and decorative-edge siccors, adhesive.
Draw 5-, 4- and 3-1/5 inch circles, and cut each out with straight-edge siccors.
Then cut a slit to the center on each circle, using straigh-edge siccors.
Trim around each circle using the decorative-edge siccors. Leaving a small opening in the top, wrap each circle into a cone shape and glue it together.
And there you have your little tree.
Decorate it with little circles (it look like little ornaments) or other lovely things.
Have fun making this little tree.

week 48

i love the prompt of this week: ideas.

Most of my ideas arise when i starting falling to sleep. That's why i've a notebook under my pillow. My hummy laugh at me when i starting writing down my ideas. He tell me "honey please go to sleep, you will remember it in the morning when it's a great idea". After a night sleep i don't remember my great idea.
I think that a lot scrappers has this problem.

Sleep well tonight.

love Simone
