Our Christmas 'tree' :)

our xmas 'tree', originally uploaded by Miss Thundercat.

This is our festive Christmastree for this year (And i think for many more years to come ;) It's made out of driftwood and has shelves to hold a part of our vinyl toy collection. The Tree is made by Street Wood Furniture, a small handmade business in Holland. They make furniture and accessories from waste and drift wood. I saw them on a crafty market a few weeks ago and immediately had this idea in my head for it. I'm so happy that it all worked out as I planned :) To see more pics of the tree, just click the picture and it will take you to my flickr account :)

Happy Holidays!!

a DIY countdown to christmas

It's December already! Where did the time fly to? This past weekend I celebrated Sinterklaas with my inlaws up north and it was, like every year, a lot of fun :) Saint Nicholas thought I was a good girl this year, as I received many fun presents; season 1&2 of Tru Calling, season 6 of supernatural, DVD's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows 1&2 and the warmest and fuzziest Chococat house slippers :) The short days make for snuggling up on the couch and watch some movies and make something while watching it. I wanted to share with you some fun advent calenders on my fave internet
hang outs Swap Bot and Etsy.
(fyi; both advent calenders are mostly links to blogposts written in Dutch)

First up is the advent calender made by Etsy with contributions from European Etsians. They share a DIY tutorial or PDF print every day. So check back daily for fun goodies :) Discover some fun new shops this way as well :)

Then this awesome group on swap bot, Dutch Swappers, which I am also a part of, a select few of the group made a wonderful andent calender this year too. with the linky tool 'blog hop' I can share the calender with you here. Every day around new a new DIY tutorial or give away will be posted :)

Have a lovely DIY countdown to Christmas
