Copic Ciao Markers or Letraset Promarkers

I went to Harolds today and found these Letraset Promarkers, they are pretty much like the Copic Ciao Markers but they have an even finer tip, other colors and best of all.... they are cheaper !! = )
Price Copic Ciao Marker €3,95...... Letraset Promarker €2,50
Still love my Copic Ciao Markers and bought those transparante boxes to store them in.
Useally you can only buy the transparant boxes filled or only for the Copic Markers.... but these are the original once for the Copic Ciao Markers.
So I'm very happy right now because I've been looking for them for a long, long time !!

Anyways, thought I would share this information with you guys = )
Thanks for dropping by.....

Downloading and installing the pea annalee font

If you have trouble downloading and installing the pea annalee font, here's a way how to solve the problem
(I hope, haha)

* First click on the pea annalee link ( read TIP under my header) to go to the website of Kevin&Amanda
* Scroll down a bit where you see a great big button that says download
* Right click on it and click on the button that says "Save Target As"
* A new window opens
* First you need to create a new folder (name the new folder so you know where to find it)
* Now the window says that this folder is empty, that's ok.... now we can save the font in this new folder
* Make sure you save it as a ZIP file
* Click on the button that says "Save"

* Now you go to your newly created folder and click on the > button in front of it
* Right click on the pea annalee font with the PDF logo in front of it and click on the button "Unpack/Unpack everything"
* A new window opens up and click on the button "Unpack"

* Again a new window opens up, but now with the pea annalee font as a "TrueType-letterype...." file
* Right click on it and click on the button "Install" (maybe you need to confirm)
* Your computer will now install the pea annalee font = )

I hope it works..... please let me know so I can make a seperate page for these instructions !!
Good luck and when you need help feel free to ask and I will do my best to help you out = )

A complete new blogger look & layout

Goodmorning everyone.... pfff I don't know if anyone has noticed but for the last few days I've been creating a hole new layout for my blog and I can tell you it's not easy changing the HTML =P
Not only have I changed my background, removed the border that was around my header picture, moved the sidebar from right to left.... things like that, no I have also installed a new font.

The only thing about installing a new font on is that the people who are following you or just come to visit also need to install your new font on their own computer or they aren't able to see it =/
So that's way I wrote a TIP on the top of my blog page
(under the header)

Just click on the Pea Annelee link and follow the instructions
on Kevin & Amanda's website
(it's easy, but if you need help let me know)
Of course this only an option, you can always read my blog in a regular font.... but with the new font it looks much prettier ; )

I would love to hear what you think of my new blog..........

Tilda Autumn Kits 2010/2011

I'm soooo looking forward to the new Tilda Autumn Kits,
wish I already had them because I can't wait to get started, haha =P
Just hope my favorite shops are going to sell them, they aren't on their websites.... yet !?
I especially love the doll in the first picture....
I wonder if Tone Finnanger was inspired by Little Red Ridinghood ??
Look at her coat and together with the fox.............. perhaps an idea !?!? ( I thought of it first, hahaha =P )
Anyways, I don't know about you guys but with all the new Eline Pellinkhof & Tone Finnanger products coming out..... I'm glad I have a piggy bank for my hobbies, haha !! ; )

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thanks for dropping by again......

Eline's "Opkikker" Boxes & Stair Step Card

(Front View)
(Side View)
(View From Above)
Hey everyone, it's finaly cooler so time to finish these Eline "Opkikker" boxes
I was talking about a few weeks ago.
Back then I was looking for these dragonfly charms and found them with help from
some fellow bloggers at Eeks-Kralen

In the boxes you could put some candy or something else if you want to cheer somebody up.
Or use it as a present for someone's birthday and put some money inside for example !?

I used Eline's Pretty Papers Bloc Eline's Babies Boy and Girl, Eline's "Opkikker" 3D sheets (AK0049, AK0050),
Eline's "Opkikker" clearstamps (EC0113, EC0114), off white cardstock, some paper roses,
dragonfly charms and a bit of string
(Stair Step Card)

Now this one I posted before, but took a close up picture so you guys can have a better view.
But that's not the ony reason... Eline posted "Opkikker" examples on own blog from other people and if you like you can send her your own creaties !!
So I'm going to send the picture of this card and of the boxes to her... for all Eline fans out there ; )

Thanks for dropping by again and have a great (and cool) evening

I placed new and hopefully sharper pictures, I read the manual from my camera again....
so I hope it worked or do I need some lessons =P

Still proud to be Dutch, haha =P

STILL PROUD TO BE DUTCH, haha..... what a match, can you believe it !?!?
Wondering what was up with that referee though, all those yellow cards (some were deserved)
but why did we get way more cards.... Spain did deserve a few more then they got.
And then he didn't see that corner and Spain being offside a few seconds before they "made" that goal...
where was he and what was he doing, hahaha =P
I'm also wondering if Spain really deserve to win the world cup
(their supporters will say yes I'm sure, haha) but to win it like this !?!?
Anyways, we played a great and fair math and come on our guys made it into the finals,
something we all can be very proud of !!
So yeah I still stand behind our guys and I'm...... STILL PROUD TO BE DUTCH, hahaha.

Paul the Octopus was right then, hahahaha...... lol !! =P

This time I just wanted to show you guys a little collage of Eline's wonderful new range of products
that is called Eline's Huis (Eline's Home)
For those of you who haven't heard yet.... for the last couple of months Eline has been writting a home decoration book with all kinds of lovely projects, you really should take a look at her blog !!

I've been a huge fan of her work for a couple of years now and I can't wait for her book and the range of products to be released in October (2010)
I already feel like a kid at Christmas, haha =P

Anyways, because I admire Eline's work soooo much.... I thought I just advertise/promote her wonderful, wonderful work and thank Eline this way for sharing her talent with us creative people !!

So Eline this one is for you..................... THANK YOU !!! : )

First set of Hänglar Stänglar stamped impressions have arrived

Hey everbody, today my first set of stamped Hänglar Stänglar impressions arrived, that I ordered at Twinkeltje a few days ago.
Astrid always stamps onto correspondence cards, using real ink... so no computer prints and she does it really beautiful !!

Normally I'm not for buying stamped impressions, but as you all know they don't sell the Hänglar Stänglar stamps outside Norway/Sweden....... so this is the only way for now.
And they are just too cute !! =P

Anyways, I also orded a second set of stamped Hänglar Stänglar impressions at
Create Your Own because Desirée has a few other ones and she also stamps on correspondence cards with real ink.

Ok got to go and make some diner now, thanks for dropping by and have a lovely evening.....

Get out ALL of your lucky charms.... keep your fingers and anything else you can think of crossed and pray we win, hahaha :P
Wouldn't it be fantastic if we take home the world cup !?!?

I ordered these beautiful treasures at Old Stuff Shop and today they arrived with the post !!
The tape measure is made of a very good quality cotton and it arrives on a thick piece of cardboard with the text.......
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away"

The other treasure is a set of 12 safety pins with a cute label that says "Just in case"

Anyways thought I would share this with you guys just in case you like "old stuff" just like me ; )
Now I didn't make pictures of my own, because first of all it's way too hot to do anything,
haha... and the batteries of my camera were not loaded :P

Nothing comes out of my hands with these temperatures.... you know what I mean !?
I've got two "opkikker" boxes waithing to be finished, but I'm waithing for new charms to arrive...
so I can't finish them anyways, haha.

I also got a "million" ideas in my head but they are only parts of ideas....
I just can't seem to put them together, you guys know what I'm talking about !?!?

When you do.... please tell me how you organize them, hahaha.... tips are welcome ; )

Thanks for dropping by, have a great day tomorrow.... and enjoy the football (when you can)
