Happy New Year! I hope your start into 2017 was as fantastic as mine. I’m looking forward to a new year of sewing and blogging and creating my own handmade wardrobe. January will hopefully bring some tidiness into the present chaos that is my sewing space. I’m making it sound really passive, but most likely it will be some very active, serious cleaning, sorting and decluttering. It won’t be as annoying as it sounds, as going through my sewing supplies and fabric always inspires new projects.

I’ve kept my sewing New Year’s resolutions really simple this year: SEW MORE and DE-STASH.

Christmas DIYs

Hi everyone,

In case you missed last years Christmas DIY posts, here’s a short recap! Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to do anything like that this year, but there will be some sewing projects coming up soon!

If you’re into origami or you’d like to try, check out my 3D paper star tutorial!

Valentine’s DIY

Valentines DIY gift by thisblogisnotforyou.comAs you may have noticed, I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day. Well, at least not the commercialised holiday it has become.
Anyway, I love DIY.
I love handmade gifts.
And this one is so much better than just buying a box of chocolates!

What’s even better: It’s simple and quick to make and it’s totally up to you what’s on the “lottery ticket”.

What’s on mine? Truth or dare! Many, many fun, tricky or sometimes embarrassing pretty personal questions for couples and a few pretty fun dares (the pink tickets), if someone doesn’t want to answer a question he/she picked!

The Valentine’s Day Alternative

the valentines day alternativeI don’t need Valentine’s Day to tell you “I love you”.

Ever thought of that?

Valentine’s Day is coming up. Obviously. Once you leave the house and step into a store, there’s hearts & chocolates & kitsch & millions of shades of pink and red everywhere.

Today at the supermarket I saw people swarming in front of a rack full of Valentine’s Day gifts, grabbing tacky stuffed animals, overpriced boxes of chocolates and all sorts of pink knickknack.

A lot of people make desperate efforts to find something they can buy and give their loved one’s. What for? Expressing how much you love a person through giving them a card and a box of chocolates?
