about me

 

Hello! I’m Cornel and I blog about things that inspire me, things I’ve made and Craft Share, the craft group I started in 2009.

You'll find lots of crochet on my blog, as well as my crochet and sewing projects for Ideas Magazine, since September 2011.

clip art frame with handmade and lace detail

I love to crochet with friends on a Friday morning!

These mornings at my house, twice a month, are called Craft Share.

On Friday we enjoyed our last get together for 2013. Our photos are always posted on Craft Share's Facebook page a day or so later. You are more than welcome to comment on each girl's craftiness and share in the joy of admiring someone else's work. Friday's album can be found here.

There is something I enjoy (almost) as much as crochet/knitting/sewing, and that is designing the little frames that go around each photo. I often use elements from digital scrapbooking kits and combine them in a way that make me want to look at the photos longer.

I started off with a round frame this week (see below)

but ended up with the rectangular inner-frame, as some of the photos I took on Friday didn't fit nicely. I'd love for you to use both of these frames though, so they're available as png files in the links below:

Visit my blog again if you'd like to see how easy it was to create the paper bunting with crocheted string I'm holding in the photo.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love,

craft share on friday 8 november

Van links na regs is Magriet, Christelle (sy't Ons Hekel begin op Facebook), ek met Lilly (een van ons 5 honde!) en Maryna (wat sorg dat ons altyd Vinnis het om mee te hekel). Nie op hierdie foto nie is Susan en Zelda.

Hierdie is 'n ongelooflike mooi kombers wat Zelda gehekel het. Zelda het die mooiste kleure saam gebruik, met net hier en daar 'n tikkie wit.

Een van ons 2 Boston terriërs, George, wou niks mis nie. Ek noem hom "Baby George" of sommer "snoekie poekie".

Hierdie oulike blokkie is sommer uit oorskiet-wol gehekel. Magties, ek dink ek moet sulke oorskiet-wol gaan koop!

Hierdie is my werkie. En ja, my +1.00 brilletjie... Op 44 het my oë skielik lui begin word as ek naby kyk.

Christelle besig om 'n poef-oortreksel te hekel met t-shirt "wol".

Mooiste prentjie met Kovsie-rose uit Zelda se tuin, en Rice Krispie en sjokolade bolletjies wat Magriet gemaak het. Hierdie keer het ons BAIE tee gedrink. Ek sal definitief 'n bietjie sjampanje bedien met ons volgende en laaste Craft Share op 22 November.

 

 En dis Chloe, wat altyd reg is om 'n stoel te deel met een van my gaste.

Jy kan na ons album kyk op Facebook.

Ek gee verwysings ('links') na amper al die patrone wat gehekel is.

Geniet jou naweek!

craft share friday 25 october and free clip art

Craft Share is die naam van 'n groepie vriendinne en myself, wat een of twee keer per maand hekel of brei, of enige ander handwerk doen, by my huis, om my eetkamertafel. Ons "werk" en kuier al saam van 2009 af!

Dis wonderlik om ons handwerk te kan deel op Facebook met familie, vriende en vreemdelinge.

As jy nog nie Craft Share (crochet/knit/sew) ge-"like" het op Facebook nie, doen dit gerus nou

(kliek net hier om daarheen geneem te word)

en kyk sommer na verlede Vrydag se fotos.

Dit sal wonderlik wees om te hoor wat jy dink van ons handwerk...

Hier is die raampies in png formaat, wat jy kan gebruik om jou eie fotos mee mooi te maak.

Dit beteken maar net dat jy jou eie foto onder hierdie raampie kan inskuif met 'n program soos picmonkey.

Dit is slegs vir persoonlike gebruik.

Kom gerus weer terug na my blog toe vir nog inspirasie.

clip art frame with flowers

We had a lovely Craft Share at my house on Friday morning. Have a look at our album on Facebook here. As you can see, I always do something different with the photos of my friends crafting. I must confess, I'm a bit obsessed with photo editing lately. I hope to DO something with it, because to me it's the perfect outlet for my creativity: something imagined becomes something real.

If you'd like to use the same frame with flowers to frame your own photos,

click on this link. It is a png file 656 x 765.

Only for personal use please.

boston "framed" and free frame

My family LOVES dogs!

This little baby arrived yesterday.

Our son, Sebastian, named him Boston.

He's an 11 week old Boston terrier

and the cutest thing!!!

If you've had a look at Friday's Craft Share photos,

you'll recognize the little frame with flag*.

You can download this png file here,

save photo on your pc, go online to PicMonkey

(a user-friendly free photo editing program),

click on "edit a photo" (top left corner),

load your own pic from your computer,

choose the 5th editing icon on the left hand side

called "overlays", then click "your own" (top left),

and PLAY!!!

Or, alternatively, use Adobe Photoshop Elements

or Photoshop.
