Winter Holidays

Today it is the beginning of the school winter holidays here.
There will be 3 weeks of laziness around this house.... still I have orders to do.... but I will take it slow ;)

I'm going to give some of my work to the girls, to see if they can help me... on the cutting side.
So they will cut basic shapes, like circles, hearts and flowers.... and they will get payed for that:)
A way that I found for them to add more money to their little box.

For this month I also made a program of making extra meals and bite food to freeze.
This will be a good experience for them also to help me and for me to try to make bite food that can be use on their lunch box.

I'm aiming for mini pizzas, wraps, mince rolls.... and what more we can find useful for freezing and then reheat.

I also made a list of things to declutter.... and things to do to improve my working and storage space.
Let's see how it goes.... I'm not really a hoarder.... I only bring home what I need.... but to through away is another story.... I always think that is going to be useful in the future.

I'm also aiming to get a nice scheduled for the cleaning of the house that will not clash with my work and with the girls extra mural activities.... that is going to be a challenge... yes it is.

So hopefully you will see in the next weeks posts about all of those ideas above.... I will try :)

This is going to be my "winter holidays"

Felt House

New product on Little Wilds :)

This gorgeous felt house can be used to decorate your baby room and at the same time use for little storage.

.... then the inside....

.... and how to close it....

Love the rain drops on the roof :)



Mandela Day Crochet Blanket

It is getting colder around here... especially when night starts to approach.
So what better way to finish the day, then to snuggle on the couch watching TV and making crochet.
Trying to do a blanket for my oldest girl for school.
This is what I have so far....

I decided to make a rainbow scheme for the pattern....
Still have to do 50 more granny squares and deliver in 1 week..... Feeling nervous!Cristina xxx
