DIY's of 2014


January is a month where I get a bit of a mixed feelings of joy and sadness because the holiday season has gone out the window. And you were extra nice this year. I had family members from USA and Hong Kong celebrated Christmas and NYE with me and not only I was surrounded by the nearest and the dearest, the food this year was indulging and probably put me on extra pounds as well… more of my festive activities soon!

It’s Saturday today and tomorrow will be Sunday which reminds me that I have to go back to work on the very first Monday, sigh. Luckily I don’t have to clean up that much Christmas deco’s.

Since my 2014 ending was good, I want to end this post with my 2014 DIY’s from January to December!

Lets make 2015 another year full of creative and fun DIY’s!


Januari is een maand waar ik een beetje een gemengde gevoelens heb van vreugde en verdriet, omdat al die leuke feestdagen officieel klaar is en daarnaast de vakantie ook ten einde komt. En je was super dit jaar!
Familieleden uit de VS en Hong Kong vierden samen met mij kerst en NYE samen en niet alleen was ik omringd door de liefste mensen, het eten was natuurlijk weer te overheerlijk dat die extra pondjes gewoon onvermijdelijk is. Meer over mijn kerst en NYE en dergelijke binnenkort!

Het is zaterdag alweer vandaag en morgen zondag en ik word eraan herinnerd dat ik moet werken op de eerste de beste maandag. Gelukkig hoef ik niet veel kerst decoraties op te ruimen.

Kortom, mijn 2014 einde was goed, ik wil deze post graag eindigen met mijn 2014 DIY's van januari tot december!

En 2015 wordt vast weer een jaar vol creatieve en leuke DIY's!
