DIY: Inspirational Advent Calendar

22 11 2015

Instead of cumbersomely finding and buying 25 great little gifts or just more chocolate my calendar offers daily inspiration for the time until Christmas.

Short and sweet quotes - perfect to pause for a moment: Some to think about...and some to put a smile on you.

"Make time for yourself" - YES, even in busy Christmas times!

Make this calender for yourself (then shuffle the cards beforehand and put them in the envelopes without looking to have a surprise quote each day) or as a gift for your loved ones, friends and colleagues.

All 25 cards are available for free as a download over at SisterMag No.21 together with full instructions on how to make the wreath and assemble the calendar.

SisterMag is a great all free digital magazine with lots of great stories and pictures including DIY's and recipes. It's available in english and german.

If you are not into wreath making you could just give or send a card each day to a special person.

Or download the cards to have some inspiration on hand for the new year! ;) 

Happy Day,

DIY: Scarf And Beanie Knit Kit

20 11 2015

I currently offer two knit kits which are great for beginners but also fun if you are already a bit more advanced in knitting.

The yarn is super cool and oh so cozy! Both make great gifts - as a kit or ready made...

The beanie kit contains 1 skein à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 15/10mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished beanie measures approximately 10"/25cm x 12"/30cm.

You will need about 1-2 hours to finish this project. The beanie is also available ready made.

The scarf kit contains 3 skeins à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 19/15mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished scarf measures approximately 9"/23cm in width and 80"/203cm in length.

You can also easily change the pattern a bit and make the scarf wider and shorter if you like.

To finish the knitted scarf you will need about 3-5 hours. It is also available ready made.

Immediately available colors are: Iceberg grey, Polar Bear off white, Mrs. Orange and Café Con Leche. With longer shipping time also Yellow, Green, Red and Pink.

Both knit kits are available here in my DaWanda shop.
