Last Week

On Sunday, I try to post a little overview in pictures, of the last week! The last twee weeks I’ve been a crafty little bee, finishing & working on projects that I have been wanting to work on for forever!

I posted a lot less pictures then I thought I did though. Even though I tried photographing and posting more than other weeks. Bummer. I do like making pictures, I just seem to forget constantly that I always have a camera with me.

Last Week I made an Instagram photo booklet

I did post my finished Instagram Photo Booklet on Instagram. I’m trying to make more use of social media, putting a little bit more care in my photos and trying to comment more on peoples most. Yes, trying, as social media don’t come as naturally to me as I would want. I’m awkward, even on the internet. :p

Last Week I gave an old lamp an upgrade

One of the projects I’ve been wanting to do for-like-ever. I’ve found this old desk lamp in our basement when we moved in and decided I would give it a second life. That was almost four years ago. But, here we are! The lamp got a new coat of paint, new wiring and I’ve stared at it fondly almost every day since.

Last Week I did some handwritten typography

I had a couple of ideas for illustrated quotes I wanted to elaborate. I’m secretly dreaming of putting these on mugs or tote bags or something. I have a tote bag with a cool bookish quote and I wouldn’t mind owning more.

Last week I went shopping and did a mini haul on Instagram

I started going to the library again! I used to be an avid visitor of libraries, but that came to a grinding halt when I started studying in Ghent. I’m quite happy I rediscovered them, although I don’t really like the library in Ghent. It’s always stuffy and way too hot inside. There is also the problem of the books I want always being lent out. So after a bit of a disappointing library visit, finding only two of the books I wanted, I went on a little shopping spree. The giant crochet hook was a necessity. The chocolate (Dille & Kamille, so yum!) and the plant where unavoidable.

Last week I worked on my 2016 agenda

I also worked on my 2016 agenda. I put a sneak peek on the blog on Wednesday and I really want to finish it soon. I can’t wait to have the finished product in my grubby little hands, stroking the leather and beaming at the pretty title pages.

Last Week I made eggs in a basket!

Last Week I spent some time in the Ghent city centre, enjoying the weather!

I made eggs in a basket on Saturday (or eggs in a casket, as they should be named on Halloween) for the first time. Really liked this, so now I’ve started dreaming of doing brunches on Saturday mornings. In the afternoon we enjoyed the view of the Ghent city centre and went to the STAM museum. I loved learning about the history of Ghent, it was quite fascinating!

read: After ignoring the book for about two weeks, I finished Siege and Storm. I also read: Ergens Waar je niet wilt zijn, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (audiobook) and Fables: Deluxe Edition, Book 1. I’m currently devouring Ruin and Rising.
watched: a lot of QI and we finally started Firefly! So excited!

What have you been up?

      Dank u! 😀 Ik ben aan het kijken wat ik daar mee kan doen, maar eerst allemaal mooi uitwerken/digitaliseren. :p

    Hihi, zo leuke eggs in a basket! Ik maak die meestal door een gaatje in één boterham te maken en daar dan het eitje in te doen, maar ik ga dit ook eens uitproberen.

      Ja, die manier had ik ook al voorbij zien komen, maar ik wou dat per se eens in de oven proberen. Niet super snel, maar wel handig als je verder nog dingen wil klaarmaken voor het ontbijt. 🙂
