{image above:you like my new paper stars from Jurinanne Matter?}

Dear BKids readers, I am sorry I didn't leave you with a nice Christmas greet like I did on Bloesem, but I do hope you have had a beautiful Christmas just like I have had... in fact I have had the most amazing Christmas I could have wished for... with my upcoming 40th birthday in January my husband surprised me we a spectacular Christmas party together with my whole family... parents, sisters and brothers and cousins... all one big Surprise!

At the moment we are enjoying some nice relaxing time here in the Netherlands and we will be celebrating New Years Eve here but then it is time to go home and get back to our normal routine... meaning back to you and my love for blogging... hope to see you back in the New Year! xoxo irene

Sponsor spotlight: VUP baby

Vupbaby.uk{in the image above: printed animal becohangers and sophie the giraffe available at VUP}

Are you the consious shopper who pays attention to the chemicals that are being used for toys, feeding items and decoration,  to be honest I should do this much more and webshops like VUPbaby help me understanding which products are pvc free and make me see how easy it is to have a nice looking stuff AND are much healthier for our kids...

My Favorites are: Janod magnifying glasses; goodbyn original lunchbox stickers; anne-claire petit elephant; cuculo clothes hooks and the moover wooden dump truck....
