DIY Emoji Emoticons

A common problem for me is falling in love with a DIY material, that I have no use for. Is this just me or it this an issue for more bloggers? It’s already a problem if you spend money on it but it becomes an even bigger issue when you really start fancying that piece. The material I am talking about? These golden mini medaillon lockets. Aren’t they gorgeous? I loved making the confetti medaillon lockets but after that I had no further ideas…Now they are back!

DIY party cutlery

After my earlier confetti party bar, I couldn’t let go of the ‘bar’ idea. I wanted to expand, make more bars for more party essentials. And what is more essential to a party than party cutlery?! Straws, Cakeforks, Teaspoons… You need all of them and yet we never give them any credit. WE SHOULD PEOPLE! Let’s raise up and start a party cutlery appreciation revolution! I started that already with this party cutlery kit, but I am raising the stakes now. I am marching on with this party cutlery bar!

Marshmallows Bookmarks

Does every country have these pastel curled marshmallows? I sure hope you’ll do, because they are absolutely delicious and I have quite the appetite for them! They not only taste delicious, they are cute as well. With their swirls and pastel colors. And you know my philosophy; ‘When something is perfect, it needs a DIY’. Clay only seemed like the natural way to go and if you have been following me on Instagram, you know my love for books. 1+1=2. So… bookmarks!

DIY Lemonade

I adore the Discovery Channel, especially the building-awesome-things programmes, but I have to be honest. When I heard about Shark Week, I really hoped it would contain a week filled with Shark Tank marathons… but no, shark week means a week full of scary documentaries en special programmes. I have to say I was a little bit dissappointed, so these shark inspired lemonades came just in time. And if the tv won’t show me Shark Tank, than I will do it myself.

It’s all about non-traditional party decorations today! Don’t get me wrong, I love garlands, flags and balloons but today I wanna share my new favourite party decoration; my bulletin board! When I was younger, I used bulletin boards for storing my Johnny Depp magazine photo collection. But now I use this awesome circle bulletin board as a party necessity. I still love Johnny Depp as much as I did back then, though.

My last confetti DIY was a while ago, 13 days to be precise, so I decided it was time for another one! I believe that a party without confetti isn’t a party, but it is a heck of a lot easier to clean afterwards. Sometimes you just don’t want vacuum after a midnight fest. This confetti bar is perfect for parties WITH confetti but WITHOUT the mess. Just let your guests fill these bottles with confetti at the exit. This way you have an awesome party and a clean dancefloor!

I have the best job during the summer months. Looking after kids means being able to spend my days out in the sun, playing awesome backyard games, but not everybody is this lucky. This DIY mini bowling game brings the F.U.N of outside games, inside. Perfect for everyone who is stuck behind a desk all day, they are perfect during phoneconversations, and easy to hide before your boss gets in.

I don’t do follow-ups. I don’t do sequals. But this blogpost is the perfect part 2 for my Bookclub Picknick Boxes post! I LOVE books. I LOVE confetti. Why did it took me so long to combine the two then? Reading a book is already  party, if it’s a proper good book, but confetti makes every celebration better. Right? These bookmarks are especially for those who spend their saturday night on the couch, with an amazing book! That’s an awesome party, right there!

Time to get in the summer spirit! My summer season wouldn’t be complete without a few (a lot) of amazing books and I can’t be the only one who loves to read with something delicious next to me. Right? These picknick boxes are made for the job! Filled with my favorite comfort foods, they are perfect for the beach, the woods or the backyard. You don’t wanna keep walking in and out the house for the next piece of chocolate, now do you?

FINALLY. Am I the only one who hates waiting after ordering something awesome online? It only took my new business cards 3 days, but those were the longest 3 days ever!  Luckily I had something to keep me occupied; finding myself a great cardholder. That is quite a hard task as well, because the ones I found were boring and wall-street-business-like. I didn’t like any. So… I made one myself! There isn’t much I love as much as I love my new business cards; but a Sunny Side Up egg is definitely one of them!
