A Dutch Explosion Box - Dank je wel, Celine!

Hallo ihr Lieben,
ich habe Euch ja in meinem letzten Eintrag die kleinen Büchlein gezeigt, die ich für meine Mitschülerinnen des Holländisch Kurses gemacht habe. Heute möchte ich Euch gerne die Danke-Explosions-Box für die Lehrerin zeigen.
Leider hatte ich aufgrund der wirklich vielen Hausaufgaben und des bevorstehenden Examens nicht so viel Zeit zum Basteln aber ich glaube, dass das Resultat doch recht Holländisch geworden ist, jedenfalls, wenn man dem Deutschen Klischee des Holländers folgen darf.

Hey everyone,
in my last post I showed you the little booklets I made for my fellow students at the Dutch course. Today, I want to show you the corresponding thank-you-explosion-box for Céline, the best teacher of all time!
Too bad that I did not have more time to add more details but honestly, I was so busy with studying, doing my homework and preparing for the exame, I could not do more. But I think using the camper is the best I could do to fulfill with the German Cliché of a Dutch.


Und genau…. Tadaaaa…. Ich habe natürlich den Wohnwagen aus dem Stempelset „Glamper Greetings“ verwendet. (Ach, ich freue mich schon auf Holländische Weihnachtskarten ;-)). Und selbstverständlich musste auch ein Fahrrad dazu. Das stammt aus dem Set „Baum der Freundschaft“.

I used the Camper oft he stamp set „Glamper Greetings“ and of course I would not want to miss a bike. So I used the one from the set “Baum der Freundschaft” for it.







Die Seitenwände habe ich bewusst freigelassen damit wir alle noch unterschreiben können und auf der unteren Seite haben wir noch einen kleinen Dankestext geschrieben.
Céline hat sich sehr über die Box gefreut und ich muss echt sagen, sie war die beste Lehrerin, die ich in meiner bisherigen Schul-, Lehr- und Studiumszeit hatte.
Jetzt wird erstmal mit meinem neuen Job begonnen und umgezogen aber ich hoffe, dass ich doch bald wieder etwas mehr Zeit habe um zu basteln.

The sides of the box are left blank on purpose. We all still signed them and wrote a small thank you note on the bottom side. Honestly, I have to admit, Céline was the best teacher I had so far. The class was just awesome.
So now I am busy with starting a new job and moving to Amsterdam but I hope I will be able to soon start crafting again and maybe also having some workshops here in Amsterdam. Is anyone interested? Please just email me!



Tot ziens!
Sandra

A Foxy Sticky Note Thank You

Hello crafters,

I know it has been a bit quite lately but I can tell you, it has been quite exciting times and the best is yet to come.

I am currently attending an intensive Dutch class at the University of Amsterdam and it is awesome but so much work. I am learning so much but I am sitting home at night and still doing up to 4 hours of homework.

Nevertheless, my Dutch is getting better and instead of learning for my upcoming exam, I decided rather to craft something for my fellow classmates and for my awesome teacher Céline.
Today I want to show you what I decided to give my fellow students as a little present and a little appreciation because all of them are really nice and we are having such a good time, really hard-working but also laughing and enjoying.


Earlier I had the idea to make little booklets with sticky notes for them. I thought every student can use them and as Marco and I went to IKEA on Saturday to look for furniture for the new apartment, I saw the pencils and … booom… the idea it was! :-) Lucky Marco was so brave and fearless to grab a whole hand full of pencils so I know had enough to craft 12 little foxy sticky note booklets.


I am glad I could use the foxy friends again and all the supplies which go with it. Hopefully I will soon be able to start Christmas crafting.



On the above picture can you see that the booklet also has an extra space for the pencil.
My foxy friends will be delivered tomorrow. I am excited to see the reactions of my fellow classmates. Maybe I will soon find crafting partners here in Amsterdam as well.

Tot later – as you say it in Dutch!
Sandra
