I have a lot of angels

Handmade vintage style angel heart by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Hi there!

And i'm back on the angel track again, hehe. I have a lot with angels in general but also a lot of angels to share with you. I believe in angels!

I created a dozen of hearts recently all with fairies and angels as a main theme and today i'll start to share the first one in a series of 8 hearts, all within the same color scheme of pastel green, yellow and gold. I love to make these little dangling hearts. Why I made so many? Well.... the reason I will tell you............ and LOL it's a very stupid reason, haha. So..... this is the story about 'why I came to make so many of these hearts'......: I went to the mall just before Christmas with my dear husband and was in a discount store where I found little packets of cardboard heart labels. They were packed by the 10 and when I arrived home i'd put them on my craftdesk. On one day I was a bit bored staring at my desk and thinking about what to make and noticed the package of hearts that was there. I just opened the packed and boringly started to add gold glitter background paper, that was also laying on my desk, to them all and came up with the idea to make tree hangers for my Christmas tree. Then Christmas came and I didn't do anything crafty anymore and they were still on my craftdesk. Christmas was over already and of course, with my snail pace, I didn't manage to finish them in time. So......... I decided to finish them this week and made inspirational hangers of them. The whole package was empty, that's at least what I managed lol, but it became quite some project to make 10 hearts all at once! So..... I will share the 8 hearts in upcoming posts and other 2 hearts that are not in this series in another post. But first this series of 8 then. They all have some sort of inspirational message, as angels always bring such. They all also have the same type of pictures. Some are with fairies and most of them with angels. On the backside I used handmade paper roses as a vocal point and also added some type of inspirational message to it. They also all have yellow flowers and beaded dangles with golden bells. All with all it's such a nice collection now! I love it! So here is the first one: 'Mindful' / 'Live in the moment'. I hope you get the angel message too! Have a wonderful day and i'll be back with more angels!

Belated angels

Handmade vintage snowangel ornament hanger by Ingeborg van Zuiden
Dear reader,

I'm late with sharing my Christmas creations, hence the title of this blogpost. I finally managed to take pictures of my belated Christmas angels, pfff....... but is it too late for angels?  Nooooo...... of course not. Angels are always a good thing, even when they are a bit late, hehe. So..... here they are, these four little victorian children with their magical wings, waving goodbye to Christmas and ringing their bells for a reminder of the upcoming Spring! This morning the first sunrays tickled me while i was sitting at the breakfast table, right before a wet snow system took over from the sun and I sensed the message of Spring is already near. So hurry hurry with these hangers then and share them with you. Saved by the bells LOL. I made these with using punched cardboard background and attached those gorgeous golden wings to them. I used glue on bails to add the dangles and the chain on top and added some old lace to the dangles as well. They are very sparkly and the bells ring so lovely when you touch them. They give the right Christmas spirit with those little bells ringing. I found those golden wings in a German drugstore. They were packed by 6 pieces, and quite expensive, but so so beautiful. I'll have to find some more the upcoming Christmas season as I definitely want to make a follow up on these love vintage hangers. I hope you enjoy the eyecandy for today. More to come!

A quick post to tell you that i've designed a new header for my blog. I hope you like it! It's a bit of a busy one, but I couldn't stop adding more flowers and even more and more and more. Of course my dear pigeon is there as well as a reminder of my dear belated father. I'm off to bed now. Have a great day!

Early Valentine

Hi there,

Is it too early for some Valentine's inspiration? I just couldn't help myself with making some red coloured earrings, so I share them anyway, even if it's early, he he.💓💓💓 

Red, the color of love, so vibrant and thankful to use for bling projects like these. I of course used lots of heart beads to match the theme. So much fun to start the new year with the love theme!

My dear husband and I had a wonderful New Year's Eve and felt blessed for all we have and share together, of which the most important thing in the world is true love for each other. I hope we will all have a very loving new year ahead of us! Love conquers all!
