THE outfit

All of you already figured out that our Belgium's Got Talent outfit was homemade.

The white lycra came from -where else- Tahir, but the special stretch fabrics, namely the stretch opaque mat skin color lycra and stretch knit flower fabric was bought online.

The Belgian colors were added on the white fabric with a zigzag stitch, at the back it is finished with a blind zipper. We did not use vlieseline as the stretchversion was out of stock in the UAE and there was no time left to order online.

Last but not least thank you for all your amazing messages on several social media about our performance! We will know this weekend if we go to the liveshows. Although we got 4 'yesses' from the judges we have to wait for the final decision they will make in the call back round.

Online Shopping

A Blog-photo-album, instagram magnets, a viewmaster; these items were planned to order months ago. Meanwhile the order photo-products have arrived and I am super excited about the results.
Especially the viewmaster gets a 'perfect 10' as the perfect gift.

We made the fabric-covered-box ourselves to make it even more personalised. Inside the box we added a pocket to put extra reels.

These are the pictures that can be admired with the viewmaster.

And this is how it looks when you really look through the viewmaster.

Image 3D has a splendid service. I never received an online order so fast in our mailbox! Apparently they also liked our reels as we are mentioned on their blog!

The instagram magnets have not yet arrived but we did receive two tiny little booklets with instagram stickers, they are very cute and the kids love the stickers with themselves pictured on it.

Also the blog-photo-albums -we made one for each year that we are online- are really gorgeous. It took some time to get them to the Middle East but when they finally got here, we were so happy with the result that the long waiting time didn't matter anymore.
It is really nice to be able to look through our blog in paper version!

I love online shopping!

Forgotten Jewels #10

Homemade items and food are even better when wrapped or stored in a nice way. I couldn't resist when I saw these jamlabels on Pinterest.

This is really a forgotten jewel as the jam and chutney dates back from end 2012/beginning 2013. Luckily we finished the content ages ago!
