Different uses for old papermaps:
When you make your own ice cream you not only know what’s in it and can switch ingredients to your liking, you can also reduce the amount of plastic packaging a lot!
Here is the recipe for my favourite ice cream!
(5 minutes of work // 2+ hours of freezing)
2 (ripe) Bananas
125ml Yoghurt(also nut milk or similar)
2 EL Cocoa powder
1/2 msp. Vanilla extract
Sugar, Peanut butter and Salt as you like
Thank you to Maike, Sabrina, Boray, Tanja and Boris for this wonderful birthday present!! 🙂

There will come a time when your plastic folders are no longer usable for applications or other presentational purposes. But you don’t have to throw them away!
You can use those Clips for many different purposes. For example as a picture hanger or for re-sealing your tea-packaging.

“The Book of Idle Pleasures”
by Dan Kieran & Tom Hodgkinson
“At its best, the book has a delightful tone of foppish grandeur, achieving without much fuss a kind of phenomenological intensity in entries such as “Walking Back Home Drunk” or “Poking the Fire”. Remember, too, that most things are improved with “a cup of smouldering tea”, on which note I must leave you, as the kettle has just boiled.”
Review: The Guardian
A wonderful book that shows you all the small and (mostly) free things in life, which help you to slow down and appreciate life. You can’t buy happiness…
In two weeks it’s already easter again!
And it’s this easy to create little easter baskets from old egg-boxes:
- Tear the egg containers apart and let them soak in water over night.
- On the next day shred the material further with a hand blender.
- Squeeze the unnecessary water out.
- Shape the paper pulp to your wishes (i.e. press it in a small bowl).
- Finally let it dry for at least 24 hours.
- Decorate 🙂
