Reader Input

Hello All!
I'm not sure who still reads this, but I thought I would do a post asking you all a couple of questions.

  1. Are there any problems/glitches with this new template I made?
  2. What kind of posts are your favorites?
  3. Are there any kinds of posts that you miss me doing?
  4. How often do you check my blog? (this will tell me how often I should post ;)
  5. Anything else you want to say to me!  I love comments :)
Anyway, I hope this new blog template works.  I'm pretty satisfied with it for now, and it's a lot happier than my old one... that was way too grey!  
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lately // Projects During Break

Hello All!
I know this blog has been a bit neglected lately... and although I feel I should have been posting more during break, this never happened.  Instead I posted very little (with the exception of my Christmas posts and Jewelry ideas).  I decided to let you all in on a secret, although it isn't much of a secret really... that just makes it sound more exciting ;)
First of all, for Christmas I was given an iPod, and from this generous gift I got Instagram!  If you would like to follow me, click this link:  http://instagram.com/nederlandergirl/
I will be posting pictures of my latest projects before they go up on this blog (since it's so quick ;) Anywho, today I thought I would share some picture from my account for those of you who do not have Instagram, as well as those who would rather quick see what I've been working on lately!

I made a case for my iPod (and it matches my iPod too, since it's red!)

I also made a spoon ring... a.k.a. a ring made out of a spoon ;)

I paper mached this earring/ring stand, and then spray painted it gold!

And this garbage can used to be lines of blue and white... but since that didn't match my room, I did silver and then tried to put some metalic black blotches on, however since the can was running out of paint, it ended up splattering... which was much cooler than what I had been planning!

This is a jewelry tree I made out of old wire hangers, and then spray painted it silver (also I spray painted the plate's top chalkboard surface)

I made the pattern for this headband and knit it with snaps at the back.

Here's a little peak into my posts on instagram:

Have a wonderful Week!
