Mother's Day Gift Crafts


Today I was on a voyage of discovery with a beautiful paint.. Pearl paint. It is a paint that gives a soft pearl shine on what you paint. I was curious about that.. I love this shine!

The paint is easy to apply and gives the beautiful soft pearl shine when drying up..

Nice idea to make something out of it. I had two beautiful hearts lying at home. I was going to use it to try the paint.

What do you need?

- Styropor hearts

- Pearl paint from Creall

- Thin long satay sticks

- Glass jar

- Chenille thread in beautiful colors

- Wooden beads, 2 large and 2 small

- Sponge

- Tassels

- Sisal material for decoration

How to make it?

1. Paint these hearts in 2 colors. Allow to dry per colour { je kan een föhn gebruiken om dat te versnellen}

2. Make a glass jar well greasy by washing it off with soap and then dry thoroughly

3. Apply a 1st layer of Pearl paint with a brush {van boven naar beneden}

4. Then, when dried with a sponge, apply the paint by stamping

5. Allow the jar to dry well

6. Paint the wooden beads in 2 colors and allow to dry on a stem of a brush or on a satay stick that you put across a pot.

7. Meanwhile, go 3 colors chenille wire braids. Do that time 2, so that you get a long braid

8. Wrap a green chenille thread around the satay stick that has inserted into a heart at the bottom.

9. When they're both ready, put them in the pot

10. Twist the long braided chenille thread around the neck of the pot

11. Put 1 knot in it and thread the 2 different beads at the ends on each side.

12. With decoration sisal you can dress it further.

Nice as a gift for Mother's Day. You can also change it to, for example, Easter. Use that styropor eggs that you paint in all kinds of colors.

Decopatchen slightly different
Decopatchen is to paste pieces of paper on various surfaces. There are many nice papier-mache shapes, and wooden, glass and terracotta objects for sale to apply the Décopatch technique. We had a stack of nice designs Decopatch paper in our hands, but no wooden objects. papier-mâché forms more in the house. And what do you do then? Maybe we won't tell you anything new, but there are many more things you can love to decopatchen! Glass jam jars, vases, flower pots, bowls, bowls, jewellery boxes, pen trays, books, beer mats, mirror frames, tables, children's chairs, figurines, coat hooks, candle stands, ornamental ladles, candy jars, pepper and salt set, picture frames, everything a nice pattern can do can be used to paste! There are so many nice, cool, beautiful and atmospheric designs of Decopatch paper available, there are always nice motifs for you! View HERE all Décopatch paper Designs! Of course we also started working ourselves and embellished nice decoration letters, glass jars, small and large cans, an empty (and clean) milk carton, and yes... even a soap pump. Nice for the toilet! We didn't take steps of it, but probably the steps of Decopatchen are clear to everyone: 1. Tear small pieces of Decopatch paper 2. Glue the base with Decopatch glue and a soft brush 3. Stick the Decopatch paper overlapping on the surface and then paint them with glue immediately with the same brush. The glue also serves as a lacquer. View HERE the detailed guide for if you want to know more! There will probably be more things to be decopatched here, because we are far from sticking out!

My friend is a woman
My friend is a woman - How I, as a straight woman, try to deal with my friend's transition from man to woman.“I want to be a woman.” - These words are still engraved in my memory as if he uttered them yesterday. In reality, he told me them at the end of last year, somewhere early October 2019. I fell from the sky. Of course I already knew that my friend was not a cliché machoman, and let that be exactly what attracts me so much about him. He is also autistic, because of which he can not always name his feelings and emotions, this is called “alexithymia.” We've been together for almost four and a half years now, and in the meantime, you know a thing or two about each other. For example, he told me that he used to wear dresses of his sisters for fun.Not a big deal, you might think. My mother had shortened and taken one of my father's overalls so I could walk through the mud with overalls and rubber boots and play farmer. However, what my friend never told me is how he felt when wearing those dresses, because he could never explain his emotions. Now this is still difficult for him, but with the help of a psychologist and sexologist, he slowly but surely comes out. He felt “right “when he wore those dresses, like he had to wear those dresses, and he always would. But he was born a man and his parents always raised him like that. My friend has a mustache, a beard, broad shoulders and a heavy voice. Nothing about him has ever made me - or anyone around me - suspect he's transgender.First appointment with the sexologist. - On October 14, he had his first appointment with a sexologist attached to a hospital in our region. That was a very difficult day for me, because my head told me he'd come back from the hospital as a woman. No, no, no. His sexologist helps him to (re) discover his orientation, his gender and who he wants to be. The appointments were supposed to come monthly. My friend has a counselor who helps him because he's autistic, and she's been with him once to the sexologist. I haven't dared to do it so far. After his penultimate appointment with the sexologist, he comes home and says, “I can start hormone therapy, it's really going to happen!” I can tell you that I felt terrified that day, and I had one panic attack after another and systematically hid it all from my friend. To this day, I still have panic attacks, although thanks to my new antidepressants, these are a lot less frequent.To the endocrinologist. - At some point, my friend's autism supervisor is sitting with us, and she says to him, “Oh yes, I have mapped out our train and bus routes to get to Mortsel”. I fell all the way from the sky. When I asked why they went to Mortsel and when, the counselor looked at me amazed. She thought I knew they were going to Mortsel together. No, no. Apparently, there's an endocrinologist. I had NEVER heard the word in my life, but apparently this is also called a 'hormone doctor', who is very concerned with diabetic patients, but also with people with hormone problems or, in this case, transgender. My throat was kind of pinched. Hormones already? A thousand and one questions popped my head in, and most of them are still there.The first hormone pill. - Yesterday it was then time: he was allowed to pick up the prescription for his hormones from the GP. He then did this and he immediately went to get the medication from the pharmacist. Yesterday he also immediately took his first two doses. I am terrified. Realistically, I know that no changes will be noticeable for the time being, but they will actually be there. For him, of course, it was great. He loves this whole process, he will finally become who he wants to be and he hopes to finally be truly happy. And I'll give him that. How hard I give him that.- Oh, my... But what about me? - I am straight. Of course, I can greatly appreciate the beauty of some women (who not?) , but I'm not attracted to women. My friend keeps telling me that he will not change much, but how can the transformation from man to woman be called “not much” now? What's going on with our relationship? I love my friend, but I really love it, and now I feel like I'm grieving. Because soon “my friend “will be gone. Then there's a woman in its place. He's not out of the closet with my parents, who are actually his parents, since his real parents have never been parents to him (are you still following?) , and plans to do this through a letter, because that way he can get out of his words more easily, and he can't tell them face-to-face, afraid of their reactions. He already wrote that letter, and I already read it. When he plans to send these to my parents, I don't know. But I'm also afraid of my parents' reaction. I'm afraid of everything right now. - This is the beginning of what is likely to become a long series. With this I give you a broader insight into my life at Yoo.rs, which is currently completely upside down. #transgender #holebi #hetero #lgbtq #persoonlijk
