Bloesem Kids | Free Christmas Wrapping paper by Jessica Nielsen

Last year, Bloesem and graphic designer Jessica Nielsen had a special Christmas project together and it looked something like this! and as tradition states, we have brought it back again this year with all new wrapping paper designs.

We had so much fun wrapping the presents and setting out all the toys to take some photographs to show you guys the designs! The pictures really remind us of Toy Story! With all the mismatched toys coming together and creating a story with all of them in it.

Like the one with the little piggies hiding from the big bad wolf, we all know that story too well. The pigs also remind me of that one pink pig in Toy Story, you know that really chubby one?

Yes yes I know we are early this year and I promise you I won't be posting much Xmas until mid November but today just a fun project to get you in the decoration mood ...

Véronique loves honeycombs and the copper trend so she taught 'let’s make a copper honeycomb' ...

Merry Christmas

Bloesem_CristmasCard_2012

 

Dear readers, a Very Merry Christmas to all of you.. here are just some words to end this year on Bloesem..

It certainly has been a turbulent year for me personally.. having experienced the loss of my dad.. but it also has been a great year to look back to. There are many reasons to be grateful and celebrate Christmas.. my two beautiful sons, who are often unbelievably naughty, too energetic at times and without a doubt the most challenging and rewarding job in the world ... kids really do make life worth living.. nothing compares to their cuddles, smiles and funny words..

Mix

And celebrating that my husband and I have been together for almost 20 years..

and having my mom and step-dad over in sunny, but very Christmassy, KL..!

Celebrating my two Bloesem blogs and all my on “the-side-craft-projects”...some of which I am sure are unlikely to be any cause of celebration when they are finished.. and while now and again I feel like giving it all a break.. and do something completely different with my life.. I simply love my work or should I say Bloesem too much that the thought of changing course always quickly fades away..

So it must be you ... my dear readers, the people I work with and the people I meet online and in person through Bloesem that give me so much energy and passion for this work.. and I would like to thank you for that..

I look forward to being back online in the beginning of January and thank you all for supporting Bloesem during the past year and I hope to see you next year! Hap
py Holidays!

DIY wooden fridge magnets

Magnets_wood_

Too lovely to not share. Our little wooden Christmas magnets are a big hit at the Bloesem home. I see more wooden projects coming up next year. Our Ikea cookie cutters came in handy again, and we loved the touch of glitter. Have the kids paint them too for some color time. 

CLICK here for more images and explanation ...

DIY_Magnets

A tip or two...
*The type of wood we got is soft and light. Perfect for cutting and making small magnets.
*Not advisable to do with children, but decorating it once it's cut would be something fun they can enjoy.
*Sand paper the sides if you want a smooth finish.
*And you are done! Easy Peasy.
