Valentine’s Day

index

Good morning love!

Yes, today is Valentine’s Day! Congratulations lovers and when I say lovers I mean all the lovers. This day is not only a day to demonstrate your love to your partner but to people who really mean a lot for you, that is to say, friends, parents, siblings, grand-parents, neighbours, animals and so on…

To show your love is easy and no need to spend money. A simple poem, a note, to pick wild flowers, to prepare a dinner, etc.

This is my way to show that my partner is my soulmate! Just a cushion with words that came from the bottom of my heart. It costs me nothing but I know that he will utterly appreciate the message. I tried to be inventive with my words and the way I feel.

The sentence is in French, it English I would say “Anchor my love in your heart”.

Spread love and happiness, not only on this special day but throughout the year!

Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂

Christmas time !

Ho ! Ho ! Ho !

ImageChristmas time is coming and we have to hurry in order to be ready. I have just finished my ornaments to decorate my Xmas tree.

I have made cute litte Xmas tree and stars. If you do not have many ideas, you can just paint a bottle and branches in white (see the picture above), then add some red wood beads at the end of your branches. You can also make funny jars with glass jar, you just paint white snowflakes and put a ribbon on it, it’s done. Just add a candle in it and you will quickly warm up your home ! You can also make candy canes by using white and red pipe cleaners, just twist them together.

ImageThose ideas are easy and quick to realise, it do not need much time and money !

A new dish towels hanger

Hello everbody,

Today, I’m in my kitchen wondering what to to with my dish towels. Those towels are always on a chair or on the table.

Thus, I decided to do my own dish towels hanger. And voilĂ  !

;Image

Image

Here is the material that you’ll need to create this dish towel hanger :

Image

Just paint the board (I choose red!), glue your spoons. Let it dry at least 2 hours. Then, you can draw what you want on your board.

As for me, I’ve made some white dots everywhere because I think it’s cute but that’s personal.

Now, I don’t have to search my dish towels all over the kitchen, I know where they are!

Halloween!

Howdy!

We are in october and it is time to decorate your home (and your garden if you have one) for Halloween!

Pumpkins, witches, skulls, skeleton, ghosts, black cats, bats, owls, bones, spiders, spider webs, orange, black, and so on… That is what comes to mind when you say the word “Halloween”.

If you want to have cheap and rather ecological decorations, you can use cardboard, paint and an X-Acto. Just draw what you want on the cardboard, cut up the forms and paint them, it is over!

You can have a treat at the end of your work, you deserve it!  You reward your great efforts by eating carott cakes with cream cheese!

Paper beads necklace, done !

I wanted to try something new and I decided to make a paper beads necklace. It is easy and cheap to make, I must tell that the result is quite impressive ! I did not expect something like that.

In fact, I have got a lot of piece of paper because I am fond of origami. I did not know what to do with all those papers, it is done !

Let’s have a sneak peek at it :Image

It is a good way to spend time when you do not want to start a big work. Moreover, you can start making the paper beads, forget your work and come back to it later.

Fall is back with the wind!

Image

Fall is back, summer is gone but do not lose your cheerfulness!

It is time to pimp your home and make it colorful. The wind is also back that is why it is a good moment to create your own pinwheel.

You will need paper, a pair of scissors, a stick and a thumbtack, that is all!

Image

Those pinwheels are easy to make. You can either create them following origami directions or simply cut a square of paper, draw the diagonals and cut them. But, be careful to stop 1 cm before the center of the square. Then, just fold your work!

Here are some explanations to do your pinwheel, I find them pretty clear.
