Hi.
This is a repost (from 2015), most of you haven’t read it so I poste it again ……. but there are some new photos!

I am enjoying my holiday, relaxing and doing nothing.
But I like to share some sweet little eggs I had painted to my sweet daughter for Easter breakfast.

Creativity has no limits and i believe that the more creative things you do the more creative you will be. and when you allow your imagination to take flight, you enter into a world of magic.

Hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season! I love giving a present wrapped in a unique and personal way. If you’re like me you often wait until the last minute to buy gifts and then you got to hurry to do your beautiful fun or cool wrapping.

Is near to Christmas and I am trying to change my habits, for the last few days I have been focused on finding presents. My inspiration for wrapping this year came from the art school for kids where I teach. Last spring we made over 400 watercolour flowers that we pinned up on the wall and it was absolutely spectacular.

They are absolutely beautiful but they were put away before the summer. Luckily I found them in a box about a week ago. It hit me then that they be perfect for name tags.

Advent calendar

 

advent calendar DIY,https://magnyblog.wordpress.
Time flies and December is here again. The children are getting excited and we want to help them to count down to christmas.

I dont know exactly when it started but in Europe we have made advent calendars for our children for at least 100 years.

When my daughter was three, I made this advent calendar so that she would have something small to open every day. Now she is nearly 17 and she still loves it so much she won’t let me stop this tradition.

I love it too and I don`t want it so stop, but I know she will grow out of it very soon. I love that we still have this connection, I’m sure I’m not the first parent who is thinking the same.

What you need:

  • Printed collage sheet/Amazon
  • Cuttings from glossy magazines
  •  a wooden board
  • varnish
  • paint (I used brown, but it could be green or red for christmas)
  • 24 Curtain screws

I went to a carpenter to get the wooden board cut to the special shape that I wanted, but the shape is not the most important aspect.

Ones you have a board, this is how to turn it into an advent calendar.:

  1. Paint the wooden board (you can use hardware store swatches or left over paint).
  2. Choose the title and cut out letters from fashion magazines. (my title is “Angel Kids” in english)
  3.  Mark the place for the hooks for the 24 little gifts on the board
  4. Arrange and glue the numbers above each hook.
  5. Arrange and glue the letters of the title and the angel pictures above the hooks on the board.
  6. Varnish the whole board.
  7. Screw all of the 24 hooks into the board.

From the photo above you see that I made lots of small fabric bags to put the things in, It took ages to make them, but you can reuse them year after year. If you dont like sewing, just stick to paper for wrapping. And If you like to sew you probably know how to make small bags nice and cool. So I am dropping the tutorial for them for now.

Make the holiday season even more merry, Now you can wrap and pack 24 small, nice and even silly presents to hang on the hooks.
