Although we have been living in our house for two years now there are still a list of unfinished projects. One of those projects was making a handrail for our stairs. We finally finished the handrail this week and I think it is gorgeous. We have used branches as a handrail to add a rustic feel which can be found throughout our entire home.
Carpenter Michiel helped us executing the idea we had of using branches. If you are looking for a good carpenter in the Amsterdam and Waterland region, I can fully recommend Michiel. Contact me if you would like to have his details.
I am learning how to sew and this sewing kit from Etsy shop Sam Made is perfect for a starter like me. The screen printed pouch contains some handy tools. Good to know: $5 from each kit will be pooled and lent via Kiva.
I can’t believe that it is the time of year already but the countdown to Christmas has begun. In the coming weeks I will be doing some Christmas related posts. Starting today with some ornaments that you can make yourself. Belinda from The Happy Home Blog created a paper snowflake for Kidspot.
You can find full instructions here. Happy crafting!

I used to love crafting when I was a kid (I still do but I have so little time..). When Kick is a little bit older I will certainly do a lot of crafting with him.! Made by Joel is kids craft blog where you can find lovely projects which you can do with your kids. Joel is a stay-at-home dad and artist and is responsible for entertaining a pair of twins, so he had to come up with some great ideas to keep them busy.
These pull-along toys that Joel designed for online magazine LMNOP, are fun and easy to make. You can find full instructions in the LMNOP issue (no. 12) which is free and you can download it here.
