Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya
to Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama…
Those lyrics were the anthem of the past few days while I was in Aruba :) I had such a blast! We went to Aruba to get out next scuba license, PADI Open Water, and I am happy to report that all six of us succeeded admirably :)
Me and D getting ready for our second boatdive
Yes, that’s right, snow!
When we left Aruba we had temperatures of over 30°C (86°F), and when we got back to Holland it was -10°C (14°F)! Honestly, when we got off the plane we were all wondering why on earth we had left Aruba in the first place :’)
When I came home, there was a big pile of mail waiting for me, and in that pile were a couple of big, brown envelopes. I love those, because they almost always contain something awesome!
Right before I left, I won not one but two giveaways, can you believe it?
The first one was from Pixie from The Crafte Nook, who gave me a very cool ‘small felted knitted ring thingy’ (yes, that’s actually what it’s called):
And the second one was from Kate from Signed With an Owl, who made me this awesome mug rug!
Thank you so much ladies, for brightening and warming up my very cold first day after the holiday :)
So the giveaway is still open for all of you who haven’t entered yet! You have till tomorrow to comment for your chance to win one of three awesome Valentine’s Day items! :) Just click on the banner below to go the the giveaway.

ps There were over 800 unread RSS items in my reader when I turned on my computer. I read all of them, but because of the volume I was unable to leave comments everywhere, I’m sure you’ll understand. But, I am now back up to speed and will start leaving comments again. Thanks for understanding :)
