The other day I and G inspired me with a great idea for an alternative to cling wrap. And then I thought: I could make that at home! And there it is, an easy project that cuts back on your plastic waste. How cool is that! Hope you find it useful, and while you're melting your wax, I'll go melt some chocolate. Because: churros. I mean, it's the weekend. :)
February again! It's still winter, so you can go skiing, or ice-skating, but it's also ball season, and Trifon Zarezan, and Valentine's day, and Fasching, and the birds are singing... So many options it's almost confusing. And while I have been exploring the slopes and the spas and new dancing shoes and old macaron recipes, I still have a peaceful idea or two to share with you. Like those cool keepsakes (clearly made a month ago):
or this post-birthday use of balloons for Fasching decoration:
I'm off, making kids' Valentines on behalf. See you soon!
But since I am not entirely sure how you celebrate the year of the rooster, I am offering you some alternative ideas: Hello Kitty party, anyone?
To G and B (kisses, G and B!), but also, HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY to my blog! I have been quite busy those two years, and this holiday season is not an exception. A lot of ideas for you, too, for when the weather gets too cold and the kids too crazy. We made a Rudolf:
and the ususal gingerbread houses:
and S's secret fruit cake recipe (no link, it's still a secret):
and a lot, a lot of cute decorative Christmas trees:
So have fun, and stay tuned for the next two (at least) years of To-blogging. Cause I'm never tired of getting inspired.
What stars are made of...
Feel like a star! And I leave you at that. Happy stargazing!
While I'm humming "Dreams are my reality" and (still) questioning life decisions, some people are getting married! Congratulations, K and S, and thanks for the trust in my woodworking skills, that definitely need some fixing-upping. I'm posting a short picture story of my attempts at sign design, and a thanks to Una for the photos of the final product. :)
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. You know, like Dory. In the less literal sense of treading water, in my case. It's been a hard few weeks with a lot of goodbyes, a few fresh starts, and overall crazyness. R moved to Texas (I miss you, R!), I quit physiotherapy (I miss you, N and S and S and P and even H!), and we had to stop the kids from their swimming classes after some very untrustworthy actions by their teacher (who will not be missed). But, on the positive side, it's Octoberfest time, so I thought you could use a creative seasonal idea :). Just keep swimming!
