Kobe and Kenji frog

Kobe is so proud, he recently became a father. Little Kenji came out of the spawn and wagged his tail so entusiastic that Kobe immediately deided to let him swim his first lap around the pound.
But not without a pool float and on a hook, safety before everything.
Kobe is very careful with his little boy and that's how it's supposed to be be!

Have a happy crochet day,

Lalylala Bella the Cow (modification)

Hi ya'll..... it has been awhile but I have been very busy and lately I have been hearing this sound and have been trying to figure out what it was
It sounds like something is going "Mooooooo" and what do you know.... it's a little cow!!
I found her this morning... her name is Bella the Cow and she was looking for a home
She's a special little cow because she only gives lactose free milk.... and what do you know, I am lactose intolerance and can only drink lactose free milk!
So she's living with me now and we are already best friends ;)


Bella the Cow is made with a Lalylala doll pattern by Lydia Tresselt
Modification by Corianne Design (me)

Have a lovely crochet day,

Lalylala Dirk the Dragon and his little buddy Stijn (update)

{ photo credit by Ellen and Danny }

Here he is Lalylala Dirk the Dragon with his little buddy Stijn!
In a previous message I told you about Dirk going to his forever home to become little Stijn's best buddy and by the looks of it they are ;)

Dirk the Dragon bought Stijn a couple of socks to keep his feet warm, yes Dirk loves to keep things "warm" if you  know what I mean ;)
But don't give him any matches mommy Ellen and Daddy Danny.... 
because he loves setting them on fire!

And as you can see in the picture he and Stijn like to snuggle up together, that is how he keeps Stijn warm when Stijn sleeps and when he is awake Dirk tells him lots of stories of his adventures as a dragon

I think the two of them are going on lots of adventures together when they are a bit older, especially when Stijn learns to walk
Lets hope they don't get up to any kind of mischief , hahahaha =P

Have lovely sunny day,

Strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting

What a day it was today... it was a day with wind and rain, so I needed something summery and sweet... it is after all spring!
So I baked a couple of fresh strawberry cupcakes with fresh strawberry frosting, with another recipe from Menno de Koning's book 'Bakken met Menno'

They were a lot of work.... but soooooooo delicious (yes I tasted one already, haha)

Have lovely weekend,

Menno's oatmeal cookies

Having a lazy Sunday today but was missing something....... that's it oatmeal cookies!!
We love oatmeal cookies over here, so I got up and went into the kitchen
... time to bake 

This time I used a recipe from Menno's book

Menno (de Koning) is the 2014 winner of 'Heel Holland Bakt' the Dutch version of the 'Great British Bake Off' TV show and his book is full of delicious goodies
Next thing I want to bake is his sachertorte.... holy moly that one looks so good, 
my mouth started to water when I saw the photo ;)
Never baked a sachertorte before so fingers crossed, haha

Have a lovely Sunday,

{ p.s. I wonder how long the oatmeal cookies are going to last }

ERNA and BERT have known each other since they were little flowers back in their very early years. They grew up together in the same backyard with numerous brothers and sisters. After the successful graduation on the tree nursery ERNA worked as a cake topping in a cupcake bakery (get her secret cupcake recipe)

BERT always enjoyed tinkering. He invented a device that could make phone calls mobile. With the money that he earned when he sold his idea, ERNA and BERT opened a greengrocery. No, not the kind of greengrocery you might know! It’s a place where the lalylala fruits and vegetables meet and spend their time together. There is also a spa where the stressed-out city fruit can relax in a hot tub full of milk or recover it's skin with a refreshing yogurt mask. There’s also a juicer for those who need a massage for loosening.

ERNA and BERT are totally into chocolate. They love the color green, springtime and they got a big library filled with horror books (cookbooks about how to make jam, jelly or marmalade) and they are scarily fascinated by Martha Stewart.


Oh my sweet goodness aren't they just the cutest things you have seen in your life!
Erna and Bert are the new Lalylala dolls made by the very lovely  and talented Lydia Tresselt
When you visit her website you will find the other Lalylala's and all the information you need... I'm sure there is a Lalylala you'll love and want to make ;)

Now which one shall I make first..... hmmmm I think Erna (the strawberry) because she is easier to make, hahaha
I made Lupo the Lam once and to make all those bubble stitches is a lot of work I can tell you... and I'm not that patience! =P

Anyways, I'm off to bed and dream of Erna & Bert...

Sweet Dreams,

Rambert the Ram

Today I would like to introduce you to.... Rambert the Ram!
It's a design by IlDikko and I immediately fell in love with him when I was searching the internet for a fun new crochet pattern
He just looks so funny with his horns and mouth, hahaha.... wait horns how was I going to make those!? Simple... (after I bought and read the pattern) electricity wire!!

For his body and hair I used yarn from Schachenmayr Original 'Brazilia' 00001 white...

... and for the rest I used yarn from Schachenmayr Original 'Catania' color 0263 beige and Phildar 'Minerai' 227 dark grey
And last but not least use two safety eyes... now lets hope Rambert the Ram does eat all of my little herbs and vegetables that I'm trying to grow, hahaha

Have a lovely sunny crochet day,

Spotlight: Missjettle

++ Paastafel ++
De paasdagen zijn voor mij een goede reden om de tafel mooi aan te kleden. 
Bij Pasen horen pasteltintjes, laat ik nou net heel veel licht roze in huis hebben. 
Geweldig in combi met zwart wit. Weg met die tuttige paas-printjes met kuikens en eitjes en gele kleurtjes. 
Ik dekte de tafel op z'n Missjettles..  Wit, roze, zwart. Hoe kan het ook anders?

Op de blog van Everything Elze vind je supergave zwart/wit printables om je paastafel mee op te leuken. 
Ik printte natuurlijk ook wat uit als zwart-wit-lover en leukte het melkflesje, 
de rietjes en de servetten met bestek er mee op. 
De creatieve Elze heeft trouwens veel meer originele printables, zoals een paasslinger en eierdopjes. 
Een leuke en goedkope manier om je paastafel mee aan te kleden. 
Eitjes vrolijk je al snel op met een zwarte stift, 
ik maakte een gezichtje er op maar je kan ook leuke printjes er op tekenen. 

Deze week kreeg ik mijn gift binnen van Design Letters
ik deed een sprongetje in de lucht toen ik hoorde dat ik zomaar 3 dingen mocht uitzoeken uit hun collectie. 
Ik vind dat ze prachtige dingen verkopen en alles past helemaal in ons interieur! 
Ik koos de theepot en het bord, ik ben er erg blij mee en ze passen helemaal bij de mokjes die ik al had. 
Zo kon ik de tafel helemaal in style afmaken. En ja op zulke momenten voel ik mij echt een lucky bastard! 

De roze tafelloper van Xenos had ik echt al zo vaak mee in mijn handen gestaan. 
Nu had ik eindelijk een goede reden om 'm te kopen. En matcht ie niet perfect met de rest? 
Ik kan hier trouwens soms wat in doorslaan. Zo is zelfs de smoothie op de kleur aangepast.
Ik maakte een smoothie van yoghurt, appel, banaan en aardbei en honing 
en deed dit in de jars van de nieuwe collectie van de Hema
Ik hoop jullie te hebben kunnen inspireren met mijn paastafel! Fijne paasdagen!

Liefs, Jet

My little Lalylala family

Hello hello my sweeties... yes it has been a while hasn't it, but there is a good reason for it
I finally learned how to CROCHET!!!
So you see... you are never too old to learn something new, hahaha

Now I discovered the Lalylala dolls about 3 months ago and wanted to make Kira the Kangaroo so badly and asked my mom to teach me who to crochet (thanks mom!)
And then I got hooked.... hahaha hooked, get it =P

Lalylala's are created by the very talented and sweet Lydia Tresselt!
On Lydia's website you can find all of her creations and where you can buy the patterns in your language
You can even get the Rita the Rabbit pattern for free (you only need to buy one of her patterns for the body)
Now when you have a look at her website (you really should) you will see that I changed Rita the Rabbit... I didn't make the embroidery rose but instead made a sunday ice cream hat
Maybe I will give her a scarf, what do you think!?

Anyways, I really enjoy making these dolls and wonder which one I will make next
