Nat's Secret Ornament Swap

This year I played along with Nathalie Kalbach's Secret Ornament Swap. Last week I received this gorgeous ornament made by the queen of techniques herself!

After being in the mail for fourteen days my ornament today arrived safelly in Austria!! Now I finally can get some sleep ;-))

This week is the last week of school here...! Looking forward to some nice lazy (scrapping ;-)) days.
Wishing you a wonderful week! Will be back soon...

Dutch Dares

Boy am I a good blogger these days ;-))

It has been a while, but finally made a layout for the Dutch Dares again! I loved the sketch that was on the DD blog for this months challenge! Thanks Marsha!

Mei-Li Sat down with me and made a shadowbox, which is so appropriate for the weather conditions we have now.

Feeling so creative these last few weeks, more will folow soon. Thanks for your visit!

Winter Wonderland!

Snow already!! This is just a thin layer, but more fell after I took this picture. Behind Mei-Li you can see the pond on which our garden ends... it almost completely frozen, if it stays this cold we can iceskate by the end of the week.

I cleaned up my scrapspace the other day, and remembered I also have stamps LOL. A quick little project with lots of glimmermist.

Just a few more days and Sinterklaas will visit our house, I think this is the last magical year...

Thanks for visiting!

I really need to make some pictures of my scrapped items that I made over the last few weeks tomorrow when light is good...

For now I leave you with a soup that is a big hit in our house... Mei-Li is not a vegetable lover, but this soup she loves.

P.S. did you see the recipe links I created in the left sidebar? If you have anymore good links, cooking or scrapbooking related, then please let me know.

Ok, Tomatosoup


- dash of good olive oil
- 1 kg of ripe tomatoes
- 2 large unions
- 4 medium size cloves of garlic
- two table spoons of dried Italian herbs ( or fresh basil, rosemary, thiman etc.)
- two table spoons of sugar
- ground peper to taste
- two and a half cubes of broth ( if you are a vegetarian use vegetable broth) I use chickenstock
- teaspoon of sambal (pepersaus) or more if you like hot
- two table spoons of balsamico vinegar
- 1 liter of tomatojuice
- 1 dc liter of cream

Cut up the unions and garlicgloves.
Heat up the oil and add spices, peper, broth cubes and hot sauce (sambal).
Add unions, garlic, when this colors add sugar.
Add diced tomatoes.
Leave to cook until thickens, this takes about half an hour.
Add two table spoons of balsamico.
Add tomatojuice and heat up.
Add cream, you can also add this on your bowl/plate.

We sometimes add some ground cheese (in the bowl).
Voila! Lots of vitamines in one bowl sshhh, don't tell Mei-Li!

Eet smakelijk, Enjoy!
