Ahm, I was having some fun while I wrote this blog and I put grandma monkey (Elmo Monkey's Grandma...) next to me ;-)

This is a plastic shopping bag with a jacket of 4 coloured grannies, combined with stitches on the side.

I had 2 pockets left from my old jeans which I put on the side of an old pillowcase. Practical for your keys, your wallet or your handy!

Doll's Day

Last week I was soo busy with the preparations of my new business, Mariam’s Lifestyle (a blog about events, seminars, masterclasses and the way of selling of a business) that I didn’t have time to write a Doll’s Day blog. I love to write Doll’s Day blogs, as much as I like the read the blogs, which I will catch up this week.


The doll’s were very busy in our house. April the Frog a design from Angel’s Crochet (https://www.facebook.com/angelscreationscrochet) heard about Tammy the Circusmouse. She thought, I want to do what Tammy does. So April’s sitting next to Ms Mouse. Fortunately these two aren’t that heavy so the lamp can handle the weight :).

Tammy Circusmouse was unstoppable last time. While I was still busy writing the blogs she screamed outside the house: wooohooo

Haha, silly Tammy, you have your hands full on such a circusmouse. I don’t bother at all.

You might want to crochet this nice mouse too. You can buy her pattern. I attach the link to Schlappohrhund Wuppertal’s Facebookpage, she is the designer, because she has soo many awesome patterns, you have to see those!
