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,

A Chunky Oversized Knit Cardigan Kit

15 10 2015 DIY

The ultimative wool cardigan - ready made or super easy to knit with this new kit.

So trendy with its oversized design and it looks equally cool paired with jeans or dressed up.

Always an absolut eye-catcher...and oh so cosy and soft!! 

The kit contains eight 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 in 32"/80cm lenghth, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished cardigan meassures 25"/61cm from shoulder seam to shoulder seam and 28"/71cm in length.

I made the sleeves less wide than indicated in the instructions because i liked that better.

You can easily change the pattern a bit around to make it perfectly for you... 

To finish the knitted cardigan you will need about 7-14 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.

The kit is available here in my DaWanda shop.
