Counting down to Christmas

adventskalender-1 adventskalender-2 adventskalender1-1

My kids are obviously pretty exited for Christmas, so last year, I made a textile calendar (an embroidery) with a little Christmas train each for them, with the wagons filled with wrapped up candy. This year however, I’m planning to do the calendar Zero Waste Style instead: I’m replacing the presents with experiences! Small things to do written on strips of paper. They get to pick one every day and we’ll do what it says. For example:

– Sushi train in Brussels

– Dancing party in the living room

– Crafting with mama

– Cinema with papa

– Take the train somewhere

– Build lego

Etsy Embroidery Assignment

A while ago I was invited to be a part of an Etsy Assignment. We are going to make a little textile art piece of something that describes our craft on Etsy. I chose to make a little embroidery of my silk chiffon dress. I’m so curious to see the finished result of this little assignment!
