Happy New Year!!!

Now that I have published (almost) all of 2011 that I hadn't published yet, only one thing left:
I wish you all a very happy 2012!!

Next year I hope to show to you (a.o.): the scarf shown here (almost finished), an update of my hexagon plaid (not almost finished) and the sheep I started ('Floortje het Schaap' from Christel Krukkert) which is going very well.

Other 2011

Finally the other things and projects over 2011:

Room decoration
  I didn't know where to keep my lemon. I really like lemons, but do not use them that much. So it has lived in this spoon for quite a while :). Looks nice, doesn't it?

Lovely lunches
Last year, I went for a stroll in a park nearby. They do have a very cute tea cottage were they serve lunch. Here we had a sandwich with serrano ham, olives, parmezan cheese, sundried tomatoes, lettuce and truffel oil. It was really delicious, so we made it again several times during the summer :).

Also during summer, I went to the beach with some friends and we had lunch there. This time with goat cheese, rucola, honey and pine seeds. Also really delicious and worth repeating.

This painting I made after this flowers :).
 Also this summer we decided to give making a mosaic a go. No picure of the result yet, but it was really easy and fun to do :).

Since my mum has a lot of purple clothes, she wanted to have a purple necklace. Because she couldn't find one in the shops, we made one.
(Picture will probably follow ;))
From this clay session, we had some leftovers, from which I also made beads. I didn't know what to do with them, but eventually they turned into this key chain :).

Flowers 2011

Continuing the things and projects over 2011 that I did not yet show, the flowers:
  These (both up and down) are from my parents' garden :).
This one I used as an inspiration source for my painting (shown here).

 These are bought at a flower stand near the road. Dahlias and sunflowers, I really love the combination of flowers and colors!

Cakes 2011

These are the things and projects over 2011 that I did not yet show. I'll do that now so I can start 2012 fresh. To start with the cakes:

First of all, I graduated for my BSc this year! This called for (lots of) cake :). The image on the cake is drawn by myself in the style of Blond Amsterdam. I had it printed on a frosty sheet at 'de leukste taarten'.
And I got flowers of course :).
I never had worked with fondant before so we tried it out on this cake:

I myself do really like this one, especially since it was the first one ever!

Merry Christmas

I know it's too late to wish you a Merry Christmas, but  I do hope you all did have a very Merry Christmas.
(On the door a lovely Christmas wreath made by my mum)

This year I again made mincepies, and also this year they didn't last very long :).
Almost ready for 2012!
XOXO Bambi
