Little treasures

I went thrifting today and I found this cute little bag for knitting needles and wool.
At school, we are learning to knit and this bag will surely make it easier for me to like it, I'm sure :)

Got this pretty golden bird (stork) scissors last weekend from my grandma.

And a new scarf in the making...

Last summer...

My boyfriend took this picture of me.
Top and skirt by Queen Nefertete.

Autumn obsession!

A few weeks ago I took the time to learn how to crochet scarfs and it's becoming a big obsession.
Chrocheting on trains, busses, watching movies, while talking to friends, while talking on the phone, ... and yesterday I caught myself crocheting STANDING waiting for a bus in the DARK.

It's so amazing what you can do with a chrocheting hooks and some yarn!
Got a few scarfs finished already, and up to more warmness soon!

A little preview!

The first labeled item!

For a beautiful boyfriend to warm him this winter.

Proud to present you...

My homemade labels!
This was my first attempt making stamps, after making one in mirror image. (Ofcourse...)
I had a lot of fun making it and i'm really proud to have handmade labels for my own clothing and accessoires! Makes it even more handmade than it already was!
I added a little golden star on each label. *

It made them with these fun things... 

I'm going to make a little how-to on making your own stamps, will post here later!

It's about time...

... I start a blog about something I'm working on for a while now and also, some future projects with other people... (but I'd like it to be a secret for now. Definitly more later!)

The reason why I start blogging is to share a lot a things, for those who'd like to read it.

I'd love to share the start of something new, my own label Queen Nefertete.

Thanks to the wonderfull Caitlin Shearer.
She designed my logo, for which I just cannot thank her enough.
I'm so happy about it!
Miaw, look how cute.

About this queenly cat logo... YES, it's dedicated to our cat. Last year I got this really cute kittin from my boyfriend, and since then she lightens up my days. My boyfriend chose her name and I was sold. 

Queen Nefertete means "The beautiful one has come".
Which I think is really nice to have as the meaning of my own label!
She was a Egyptian Queen in the 14th century BC.

More about her a next time, that's it for now!
Thanks to Caitlin, my cat and my boyfriend for this really nice name!
