A mix of places to visit in Hungary

Lately I’ve been thinking about travel a lot and, given our recent trip to Budapest, of past travels. So I’ve written about another older trip, this time about a trip I took alone. It was just what I needed back then!

Head over to Milliver’s Travels to read my article, “Places worth visiting in Northern Hungary”I’ll see you there!

DIY Pencil Holders

Usually I throw away tin cans. Last summer however, I decided to try and make myself a couple of new pencil holders. Not that I was in need of them per se, but I wanted to craft some.

At first, I made myself two – a smaller and a larger one with a nautical, summery feel to them. Then, in September, I made a couple more – in the same format for myself, and two larger ones as gifts for friends with a Fall theme.

DIY Pencil Holders

tin cans (or paper tubes, or cores)

Start gluing the yarn from the top. If you find the yarn is a little difficult to attach to the tube, wait until the glue is tacky before wrapping the yarn around.

After wrapping a few rounds, turn the tube upside down and continue wrapping. I found that working from bottom to top is much easier than working from top to bottom.

You may change the color of the yarn or just keep to one color.

Decorate the pencil holder with embellishment when the yarn is securely affix to the tin can. As you can see, I used sea shells and rocks, ribbon, bows, felt leaves, a wood butterfly and interesting buttons.

Happy crafting! ;)

May you have a colorful day!

Lately my interests are focusing more on tracking the degree in which flowers are blooming. Spring is gone, summer is here and I’m most happy when the sun is shining, shining increasingly more every day.

I love that on most nights we can leave the window open until around 3 AM and it still isn’t cold outside.

How’s the weather where you live?


Breathe in summer with all its beauty :)

All planned?

I love spring, and am not totally ready to welcome a melting hot summer (even though right now it’s raining away and I’d rather stay in bed all week!).

But I’m certainly excited at the idea of a break in my schedule, some free time, and why not, even the hope of visiting a place I’ve never been to before? To my wish list I’ll add the following: Hungary, maybe some trips here in Romania, and lots of walks with my fiancé… but it’s not all planned for sure yet. And for once in my lifetime, it’s not a problem!

I’ve been thinking of erasing most of my plans from the face of the earth. I know, it won’t be easy, but it will be interesting and new for me.
So goodbye plans!
And hello wishes needing to make come true! Doesn’t that sound great?

Do you have any plans or wishes to make come true for the summer yet?

And to prove the point of erasing my plans, I’ll just link to a video of mine now, forgot it yesterday ;)
