DIY 2013 agenda

 So, I know January is almost over and probably most of you have your agendas for 2013 all set up since December. But me, I'm late. Probably because I couldn't find one that I really liked. So I decided to make one myself, and I must say I love it in all its pastel starry beauty!
And for those of you that are late like me, I'm providing this calendar for you to download in english (here) or german (here).  Get the cover (here).

Simply print out all pages except first page in booklet duplex on regular printer paper. If you don't have duplex, use booklet front pages only first, then put the paper in the printer again and print booklet back pages on the backside.  Instruction here
Print the cover on cardboard.
For the spiral binding, first cut all pages in the middle and assemble in the right order. Then take them to a copy shop, they can do the spiral binding for you. Or maybe you have a machine for that, like I do.  
Or you can also just use the sewed version that I also used for the Paris Journal here. In that case, do not cut the pages, but instead fold them in half and sew together.

I got some tartelette forms for christmas that I wanted to try out yesterday. I can't believe how delicious these turned out to be! Make sure to try them when they're still warm. 

30 before 30

So, no new years resolutions to share this year. However, ever since my 29th birthday I have been collecting a number of things I would like to have done before turning 30 this year. Some things are really trivial, some are quite a challenge for me, and some were already accomplished (like the trip to Paris and buying a skateboard). But after finally completing the list yesterday, I thought why not share it here at the start of the new year.

Let's hope it's a good one

Happy new year everyone!
I hope you had wonderful holidays and a great party (or a quiet celebration) yesterday.
I celebrated the beginning of 2013 with some friends and made little wish jars for everyone, where the wishes and resolutions for the new year can be kept.
I used little spice-jars that I filled with silver stars, little pigs or clover and finished off with a label.
I'm going to write my wishes down right now!

2013 - let's hope it's a good one
