Happy first school day from Austria! When in Rome, do as the Romans do. So, instead of flowers for the teachers, N brought to school a... T-Rex-shaped school cone (kindercone). For all of you who have no idea what that is, Wikipedia explains. For all the others, here is how to spice up your cone.
And here some ideas what you can put inside (because, kids on a sugar rush):
If you're not that motivated, a simple rolled cardboard will do. Just don't forget the chocolate. Enjoy homework season!
I am mostly referring to my crazy life, but I am sure it could apply to any of you. It's fun, and loud, and you perform all kinds of acrobatic tricks to your enter in your jeans/car/insert something appropriate, you jiggle at work and at home, you try to tame and train your offspring, and sometimes end up throwing flames, it's always a show and sometimes there's even popcorn.
But to make it a real TBT, I am sending you nice photos from last year's photo marathon. Click on a picture and see where it takes you :).
Summer is here, and weddings seem to be all around us. So TO has been busy pretending to be a florist, decorator, pom-pom maker..
... bridal earrings designer and the like...
Needless to say, this month's project is wedding related. For a dress-to-impress wedding presence in a pinch. I present to you: a 10-minute fascinator. Using materials at hand and a lot of hot glue :)
Mayday, mayday, TO is about to have a panic attack again while trying to organize summer vacation for the coming months. To calm myself down I had my first attempt at baking with apple flour (pictured below), which was a great success, especially compared to speaking to owners of Italian villas. I will definitely try that again.
And, since is spring even in Austria, I am working on propagating succulents...
...and experimenting with monster slime. Just because corn starch can be fascinating.
If you are following my bright example, by now you should be ready for a nap. And here is where this month's project comes in handy. Enjoy!
Yes! April! The time when we see the cousins (entre ellas prima V), and celebrate, well, Easter. So while I meant to write about my first-time experience in making baklava, and my sorry attempts to re-grow salad (pictured above), I decided to dedicate this post to Easter bunnies instead.
Actually, the project for April does not involve real rabbits, nor eggs or chocolate. It's a dress. :)
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!
