...Almost the end of the year resolutions....

Got to love this post :)
Usually we see this in the beginning of the year... but I have so much stuff to do right now... I cannot wait 4 days to get things done... it is ridiculous!

- Need to organize my craft corner....
changed some tables and now half of my cupboards where I used to tidy up are gone.... Have to sort it out the only one available... throw everything away to make space for my goodies!
- Need to make new pillows for my living room...
I said that in the beginning of this month.... oh look, we are on the 27 already!
- Need to organize my little wilds closet...
I have found a substantial amount of clothes to wash.... that is a sign that they cannot tidy the already confusing closet... and it is much easier to just give it to mommy to wash then to fold!
-Need to start to cut work...
Cannot and I will not get lazy... that made me work this month until midnight, that ended in the morning with a very bad itchy eyes!

Now you may say that is not that much.... yes it is!
I also want to practice my cheesecake until perfection....
Make a Indian cake that from the picture looks divine!
Need to go shopping for the remain stationery for next year!

... and I also want to have time to sit on my actual couch and watch some TV....

Anyone in the same boat?

Welcome December :)

And here we are....

The last month of 2015....
I cannot tell you how fast this year really passed... it was like a rocket with a super engine.... Oh my!

Made so many gorgeous things this year... so happy for it.
My girls are at their last week of school and laziness has fall upon our little house!
Although I had to close orders for this year in the beginning of Nov. I'm still busy and with work to finish until the middle of Dec...

Summer is approaching with big steps... yesterday we almost melt down....
and today we are having a typical Durban weather... lots of clouds... but very hot at the same time.

... now this wouldn't be a normal post here if I didn't show what I've made so far....
so here we go....

2 mobiles...

... and busy now finishing 3 quiet books....

Old and new pages...
I will show everything better once each quiet book is complete....

see you now now ;)

Ballerina Mobile

It is always a big hit every time that I make the ballerina mobile....

This one was inspired by the ballerina mobile of Paula from Sweetfelt

Doing another mobile with sheeps, that hopefully will be ready to show tomorrow....
There is never a dull moment here :)

Update... Showing... so late...part2

Quiet books are fun to make, because there is a lot of little things to put here and there... lots of thinking...etc.
They also take a lot of time to do... this one that I made took me 1 month to complete (doing at the same time some extra orders)...
It is a long process, but it is fun to see the finished book :)

 This is what I think it is a good idea... all pages are separated, so if you have 2 or 3 kids at home... they can actually all use this book at the same time... each of them in their corner :)

The sleeve with the name Stella was the first book that I made.... then I made exactly the same book again but this time for Olivia... she loves bunnies :)

Next post will be the lats one from late updates... it will be a little of this and a little of that... I'm almost up to date here :)
