Creative week, part 2

This is day two of showing you my work. We started the day very slow because my little girl had a teacher only day. It is great to spend some time just with one. She stayed in bed a bit longer than normal and we baked some nice cupcakes for afternoon tea together. She did the decoration part and I can tell you there was a lot of icing involved. But by the time her big sisters came home we she was finished and we had some nice cupcakes.

I made a lot of great gift bags, I saw the tutorial on Heleen's blog and they are really easy to make and are great for the gifts on the Arts Trail. Makes it more professional.
So thanks a lot Heleen for showing how to make these great gift bags.

I made a bag out of purple jute with vintage lace, it's a big bag so great so take all your stuff with you. It's made to sell on the Arts Trail but If I don't sell it I put it in my Etsy shop.
I like all the bags I made but can't keep them all so I have to make a good choice.

This is the first time that I write in my blog.
I am Jacoline, me and my family emigrated to New Zealand from The Netherlands 3 years ago.
I can tell you, we went through some hard times in those 3 years, but we found our dream.

We bought a lovely home close to the beach. I spend a lot of time in our garden which has a lot of fruit trees, a nice vegetable garden and great flowers.

I love to shop in secondhand shops and garages sales are the best invention ever.
My days are filled with craft, cooking , baking and of course my 3 girls.
I try to have a beachwalk every day and on wednesday I join the quilt club.

We are still busy with rebuiling the house to make it a great home.
We like traveling and like to discover our new country.
I keep you updated with new stories, recipes, ideas and pictures every week.
