Happy Holidays!

My holiday has begun...Yay!
We will be on our way to Sydney tomorrow and spend a few days in this beautifull city.
Then we will slowly make our way back to Melbourne.
But we will go back to basics first and enjoy some (hopefully) magnificent camping along the coast.
I wish you all Happy Holidays and a sparkling New Year!
I will be back in January....


This is the last Christmas present that I finished this week.
It's a little crochet cosy for a friend.

I finished another bag tonight! I probably will be making more as last minute Christmas presents this week...

Sunday Sewing!

I wanted to sew something easy today. I found the pattern for these
little bags in one of the Tilda books.

So simple and easy. Great for your make up or as a travel sewing kit.
And as they say here in Australia:
'They make great pressies for Chrissie!'


Yahoo... my sister started her own blog as well!

Have a look on!
She already has her first follower...Me! Or should I say stalker (I might be a bit over-enthusiastic!)

Good luck Sis!

Work in progress: finished!!!

I finished the name plaques that I was working on!

I love to make a customized product. The theme for these name plaques was 'Australia'. And this is what I came up with!

One of the name plaques is going to the UK and the other one to Hong Kong. How exciting!

Mon Cherry is going International...hehe!

Have a great weekend!

Ten things about me...

I received an 'honest blog award' from Sue from I Purr-Furr to Craft. I'm very honored.
Now that means that I have to tell you 10 random things about myself. Oh dear.... here we go:

  1. I am addicted to Nivea hand creme.

  2. I love Sushi and that's probably one of the main reasons that I love living in Melbourne so much. It's Sushi paradise!

  3. I have a Dutch mom and a German dad (I miss you both)

  4. Okay...this is probably the most embarrassing one..... I'm afraid of thunder!!! If I'm home alone I actually hide myself under a blanket with my Ipod till it's over....hehehe.

  5. My plan for next year is to do more sports. Not difficult as I'm not doing anything at the moment.

  6. I actually studied Social Work but I have not been working in that field for several years now.

  7. Me and my sister (and occasionally some girlfriends) have watched 'Dirty Dancing' more then 40 times together.

  8. I'm going to buy myself a new sewing machine soon and any advice on what brand and type of machine is welcome!

  9. Like most women I have a shoe addiction. But the funny thing is that I never wore high heels until I was 28!

  10. And number 10 brings me back to this award that I received. I'm supposed to forward it to ten other bloggers that I think deserve this award. And if I'm completely honest I don't like doing this. Not that I can't think of any honest bloggers. There are so many lovely blogs out there. This whole award thing is just not my cup of tea. Nice comments or a new follower make me just as happy! And that's enough for me.

And therefor I want to thank two ladies especially. And that would be Sue from I Purr-Furr to Craft who send me this award and Anna from who became my first follower. Both very creative ladies themselves! Just wanted to thank you for receiving all those nice comments from both of you since I started a few months ago. Thank you so much!

Work in progress part 2

I'm still working on the name plaques. I finished the borring part (sawing).
Now let the decorating begin! Yay!
