Two days ago I had finally gathered the courage to make a skirt with a zipper. I've tried it before and it didn't turn out great last time. In fact it was a total failure. But this time it went better. The first skirt I started making was with a red checked fabric wich had been lying around for quite a while now. From the moment I bought it, I new it had to become a skirt. And so it did. However, it didn't turn out perfect. There are still a few loose threads, so I'm going to add lining. Hopefully that will fix the problem.
The next day my second attempt at making a skirt turned out rather succesfull. I used this yellow/blue checked fabric and I'm quite pleased with the end result. I made it a little different than the one from the day before, and I think I've got all its flaws covered. To make both of the skirts I didn't use any pattern. I just measured myself and went from there. If anyone is interested in how to make this actually easy gathered skirt with zipper, I would be happy to write an tutorial, just let me know!

Merry Christmas to all! Yesterday I decorated my room for Christmas and I also made these little christmas trees. I think they're cute and they're so simple to make. Just cut out the same shape of tree out of different colors of paper. Fold them in half and stick the sides together. And your done! If you want, you could use more special paper or decorate this ordinary colored paper with glitter. Maybe I will do that.
I'm so glad we're having a vacation, because I've been so bussy lately. It's nice to just have time to do nothing and relax. Okay, in truth, I'm not very good at doing nothing. I have tons of projects that I still want to do or finish!

The last couple of days I've been pretty bussy. The little time I had I spend on Pinterest. I came across this quote saying: All you need is less. I like sayings like this, especially this one because it really made me think. It is so true that I have way to much stuff that I don't use and even forget about. So I decided that it would be a good time to start cleaning up my room. I'm far from finished, but there was already so much stuff I found that I could go without. I've already sold some via the internet, and hopefully in a few days the rest of my stuff I put out there will be sold as well. From now on I'm going to try to buy less and at least think more about wether or not I will really use it.
Last year we had a project on my school wich was all about who you are and who you want to become. We took a suitcase, decorated it and filled it with things we made during this project or were important to us. Now almost everything I find in my room and want to keep for sentimental reasons, I put in there. It is a nice way to store items that you really don't want to throw away!

In my first blogpost I mentioned that I had started with NaNoWriMo. The goal was to write a novel of 50.000 words in a month. I have only written 19.687 words in November. But this time I don't feel so bad about nog being able to accomplice my goal. Last year I only managed to write 5.000 words, so I would think this is a big step forward. It's just that November is a month in wich so many things happen... My own birthday, getting ready for Saint Nicolas and so much more! So I'm actually quite proud of myself for coming so far. And I know,
One day I'll be able to finish. Maybe not this year, or the next... But some day!

Last tuesday I turned 18. In my country that means you're supposed to be an adult. I don't really know if that's the same in every country. I'd love to know, so if someone does?
It's a very strange feeling that one day, you're just a teenager and then the next, you're an adult. I don't really know how I feel about that. On the one hand I'm excited that now I can do (almost) anything I want, but on the other hand; you also gain a lot of responsibilities.
But I thinks, the feeling that there is so much I can do now perseveres. Because there are just so many things I can't wait to do!
I still don't have a clue about what I want to do next year, so I hope it'll all be clearer in a few months. Traveling and taking different courses around the world seems fun, but I have to be realistic; it will be very expensive.
My biggest wish for coming year is to graduate, so hopefully I will.
