Wicked, tatting and randomnes


Hello Guys ^___^

Pff I have been busy, I am going to stop saying that I will update here more often, because I can't keep that promise anyway XD, So I will update every now and then.

Last Sunday I went to see the Dutch version of Wicked. I saw it about three years ago in London. I loved it!
I was a bit worried about the Dutch version, I was afraid they would make a very bad translation, but I was surprised. It was very good actually.
Afterwards, my Boyfriend bought me a t-shirt ^__^ I love it, it's cute, the image is sewn onto the t-shirt which gives it a bit of a 3D look.


This was my outfit. I choose to wear a bit casual and warm Lolita outfit. The show was in Scheveningen, which is pretty much right next to the beach, and it was cold when we left the theater. We even went to see the sea late at night ^___^
Breakdown: Skirt: Angelic Pretty
Socks: Secret Shop
Blouse: Handmade by me
Shoes: Bodyline


I have also done some more tatting. I am still learning. I wanted to make something I could "use". I always just make doilies or try-out thingies. So I made a bracelet with beads. The original pattern is for a choker. But I can use a bracelet more often.


I am very happy with the result, though it's not perfect, I think I am getting better ^___^.


Teehee me and my Boyfriend at a gothic and fantasy event during the Halloween weekend  ^__^


We are living together now, and we got our very first Christmas tree XD
I am soooo happy with it, but my christmas ornament collection is not so big yet, so the tree isn't very full. I still think it's cute though. I love the color combination, red and silver, it matches with the curtains ^^

Here is a view from the window of my apartment. They are building a garden in front of our flat. I saw the drawing of it, and I hope the garden will become as beautiful as the drawings. I can't wait for it to be finished ^^


Alright, that was it for now. 
Ow just one more thing, I want this fridge as a finishing touch (no really) for my house XD

Hello All!

Did anyone here ever heard of tatting? I never heard of it until a few months ago. 
I am looking for techniques to make lace, I already know crochet, and in searching for other techniques, I came across tatting. It's so beautiful, I like it a lot more then crochet. Just take a look.

So, I started collecting some materials and books to start. I found a nice book with very clear instructions on how to start tatting. 
So I am practicing on it now. I do it everywhere, even on the train to work and during my lunch break ^__^

For tatting you need a tatting shuttle. Most of these shuttles that you can buy in a craft supply store are kind of ugly and boring. I started looking for a really cute one. On Etsy I came across a seller that sold very beautiful painted shuttles.
She has a collection with different designs, all are equally cute. I bought a pink one with roses.
I love it so much, It is very easy to work with to. I  have a few other shuttles, but they are a lot bigger, and this one is small and smooth, I keep choosing this one to work with XD.

^__^ In my "learn how to tat" book there is a practicing pattern of a little butterfly. I like the pattern so much that I keep making butterflies. I made a lot already. Here I am working on a chain of butterflies ^__^

A few days ago, I visited Amsterdam, and found a craft shop there. Inside I found some shuttles, and I was really surprised because I couldn't find them in any other craft shop. So I got very enthusiastic about them, and the shop lady told me she had some books on tatting as well. She showed them to me, and I picked two of them. I am so going to visit this shop again to buy some more books.
But for now, I only have these two ^^

Hmm well that's about it for now. 
I think I will continue on my butterfly chain now ^^

Just one more picture though
My tiny tiny threat collection. I need some more, but for now, this will do ^^

Long time no see ^^
I haven't been able to update recently because I moved and had to live without an internet connections for almost a month.
I also went on a very fun 10 day trip to Ireland with my Boyfriend right before we moved to our new apartment (Yep we are living together now ^_____^ <3 )
It has been a very hectic time, and it still is. We are still working on creating a nice place to live. It is awesome already, A beautiful 7 stores up three room apartment. You should see the sunsets from up here, our balcony is facing the north Sea where the sun sets over, its lovely. 
I have already set up a little sewing area for myself in the spare room which we call the green room (just because we painted the walls a minty green colour ^__^)

So now that I have an internet connection I hope I can get more active on this blog again. And also on my sales blog. I can't take any commissions yet, because I still have a small waiting list with costumers. 


A few weeks ago, I went to Castlefest, which is an anual Dutch Fantasy festival. It was great, I met up with some very good friends of mine.

Here are some pictures of me together with Charlie Chaplin ^___^

Isn't he awesome!!!! He is a great and very skilled actor called Cela. He is sooo very sweet, and he always looks awesome on this kind of events. He actually really takes on the character of Charlie Chaplin!

Hmm alright, diner time now.
I hope to make an somewhat bigger update soon ^__^

Just a small update in a busy time


Hello Ladies and Gentlemen

I really really wish I could update my blog more often, but I often don't know what to write, or I am very busy. But every now and then I will update ^^.
Today I want to show you all the result of the Butterfly JSK that I was working on a few weeks ago.
I wore it at a party last week, it was a lot of fun. My Boyfriend took a picture of me before we went there.


Lol weird pose XD. I am quite pleased with the result of the JSK. I especially like the embroidery on the bodice, but that is because I am a major sucker for embroidery XD.
I am wearing it with a bodyline blouse and very very old Baby the stars shine bright socks. 

Well, that was all I had to say for now ^^.
My next post will be more elaborate, I will show my newest Lolita purchases. I wish I could do it now, but they are all packed in a suitcase, and I didn't have time to take pictures of them yet.

Byebye ^^

Spring shopping and a fun day in Lolita, and a little ranting


Hello All ^^

Last week I went on a bit of an adventure with my Boyfriend and a friend of his. This friend is a member of an official licensed shooting club. He invited us for a introduction day. It was a lot of fun, though I still think shooting is scary.  It was completely save though, and fun to try out some time. My BF took some pictures of me, since I was wearing Sweet Loli, it made a nice contrast with the rest of the place XD.
I was doubting about posting pictures, because it could be intimidating for some, but I shopped the picture with a cutesy pink heart, so I think it should be okay. 
Remember that this picture was taken in a licensed club, under the supervision of professionals.


It was so much fun, haha, the owners of the club were very nice, and complimented me on my outfit.


I finally got to do some spring shopping last week.
Here is the result, I still need to find some more cute skirts that I can wear at work though:

Maxi skirt from Pimkies
Some cute t-shirts, two from C&A and the cake one is also from Pimkies

Some nail art stickers ^^

I also had my nails done this morning:

I can never do anything to elaborate because of work, but I still like it ^^.


My car,

Yeah, I almost bought a new one, not second had, completely new. Why? Because the one I have now exploded two weeks ago. It was scary, I parked my car, turned it off, I wanted to call the garage, because the car's temperature was waaaay to high. After I turned it off, it just went BOOM. There was so much smoke coming from te front, and lots of water was flowing away from under my car.
Luckily it looked more serious then it was. The garage could fix it, so I didn't need to buy a new one.
But I am pretty pissed off at the people that sold this car to me last year. A month after I bought it, I went back to them, because I thought the temperature was getting to high, they told me back then that it was all okay. As long as the temperature didn't go into the red zone, it was fine.
The ANWB (dutch emergency service) told me that what those guys told me was utter bullshit, and they should have fixed it back then. It would have saved me about 300 Euro, Grrrrrr. But I can't do anything about it now unfortunately. 
I am glad I got my car back though, and that the problem is fixed. 
I hope I can drive it safely for a few years now.

Okaaay that would be enough ranting XD.

Time for work.

Random update ^^


Hello there,

How are you all doing? Welcome to my new readers ^__^
I haven't been around for a few weeks. So I thought it was time for a small update again.
I don't have a whole lot to tell though, I am very busy with sewing and also with finding a new apartment to live in.
I did get myself a cute new toy ^^
I bought a Hello Kitty cell phone. It's a Samsung Star Hello Kitty version.
The front 
The back, it didn't come with the roses, I put those on there myself.

Cute right? When I just got it, everything was in Hongarian, I don't know a single word in that language, but thank God for google translate^___^
It is a great phone, very easy to use, it is a lot like my old phone, which was also a Samsung touchscreen.

With a new phone I also needed a new phone cover. I decided to sew my own Phonesock ^^
I bought a very cute machine embroidery set some time ago, with cupcakes, so I thought it would be cute to use that set.


I am working on a summerdress for myself. I bought some adorable butterfly fabric some time ago, and I found some matching embroidery pattern, So I started this dress last week.
It looks a bit weird here, because my dummy is bigger then I am, I am almost two sizes smaller than her, so the dress doesn't fit her at all XD.

I also bought this cute classical fabric yesterday 
I am not sure what to make with it yet, but I will just put it in my huge fabric stock ^^

Hmm well, that would be all for now.

Byebye ^^

Hello all ^^

Today was a very fun day. It was my birthday, I am 24 now. I felt old, until the lady at the jewelers shop treated me like I was 17 (she was very nice though).
Today I decided to wear my 50's style cherry dress, it is a summer dress, but it was warm enough with a bolero.



I got some very nice gifts from my Boyfriend and family
I went to Gent in Belgium with Him this weekend, and he kept giving me presents ^^, that was so very sweeeet ^___^ 
He gave me loooooots of chocolates, which are almost all gone by now XD
And also these two books:
A comic book, very good book, beautiful art. And a travel guide to Japan, because we are planning to go there in 2013. I know that is a long time, but there are sooo many things we want to do.
He also gave me this adorable card. I cut the message of, because that is private -__^

My parents gave me this beautiful Pandora charm bracelet 

My sister gave me this cute and funny cake set

And my brother and my sister boyfriend gave me new tires for my bike, I haven't used it in ages, but with the upcoming summer I wanted to use it again. But it needed new tires. 

In the afternoon my grandparents came to visit me ^^, it was nice to see them again, I don't see them often.

It was a great day today, even the weather was awesome ^___^

First day of Spring!!!! And 1 year blog anniversary ^^



I have updated my new website with a lot of new items! Please have a look


Today is officially the first day of spring in my country. The weather outside is lovely, the sun is shining, it is still a little bit cold though, but I am sure it will get warmer soon.
I hope everybody is enjoying the sunshine today!


I wish I could go outside, to the park or something, but I have to work :-(. Ow well, I did go to the beach yesterday, so I shouldn't complain.


Also, last Saturday was the 1st anniversary of this blog, yaaay, one year has past already, it went by so fast 0.0 
I am so happy that all of you started following my blog. Thank you all ^^
I hope I can do another year of blogging.

Next week is my birthday, I am gonna be 24 already. I know I shouldn't say this, but I feel kinda old XD. 
Aw well, Party time!!!!



New stuff!

I bought myself some new things.
For the summer, this cute 50's style dress

I bought it at
That site has a pretty big collection of 50's style clothing, not second hand, all new, also shoes and accessories, all for very decent prices. If you are interested in this style, you should take a look at their webshop. They did win the Dutch home shopping awards a few weeks ago to.
The dress has a wonderful fit, but it is a tad to long, so I have to make the skirt a bit shorter. But besides that, it's perfect.

I also purchased this cute weekend-bag:
Cute right ^^, It was on sale at the drug store.
I will use it when I go on short trips. 

Last week I finished a vest for my Boyfriend. It was quite a project. The pockets for example are rather difficult to make, but I am very satisfied with the results

The fit was very nice for Him. And He looks very good in it hihi * --_^* 

So that is it all for now, time for work.
