New beginnings

Happy New Year Everyone! Let’s hope it will be filled with lots of good things!

Today was the first day back to school for my Little Man. He was happy to go back especially to show off his new haircut (we had to nearly shave it off as a result of the dreaded L word, yes LICE!). We are over that now I am so happy to say!

I am happy too to be back in our routine. I am a little anxious for my Little Man as he was having a bit of trouble at school towards the end of last year (it is a little weird to say ‘last year’)… However, I am hopeful that all will be well especially as the school is being great about stepping in and helping. I like the Principal a lot.

My Little Lady is back at her daycare where she frequents about 3 days a week while I am at work (REAL work – not artsy at all – but I must say that I do enjoy the ‘conservative’ part of my working life as it adds a different element to it).

So while the Little People were not with me today, I was very productive and made an order for some new supplies. So happy about that! Love the anticipation of awaiting some new supplies with which I can create some new lovely jewellery. Here is a small infusion of colour for you to brighten your day.

We finished making the birds!

So going back to the start of school today. Jivan and I read together for about 20mins and it was a good beginning to our day especially as the book we read was by one of my favourite children’s writer and illustrator Lauren Child. I love Charlie and Lola. We read “I Am Too Absolutely Small For School“. Really enjoyed it!

Can you see Lola’s imaginary friend Soren Lorensen below? How sweet!

Now must dash. Thanks for having stopped by. Leave me a note of you like. Must put my legs in action to go pick up the Little People.

Enjoy the rest of your day!


The Power of Vulnerability

I just wanted to share this inspiring TED talk by Brene Brown – fantastic!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day!

This is a quick post to show you what we got up to so far in the countdown to 2011 – 3 days to go!

Christmas Day was pretty relaxed, especially as I did not do any cooking. H spent the morning cooking and then we enjoyed a steaming cup of Armenian coffee with cardamom. yum!

Nibbles were had.

Now this is something that really excited me actually on Christmas Eve. It is a present from a friend who made it for me to display my jewellery. I just love it and am very touched by the very thought of it, really! And the work that she put into it, and she works full time and has two kids! Thank you!

My Little Man got a Ukelele from his dad and they did some rocking together that same day. Just too sweet. I know H, ever the musician, would be chuffed if his son took up guitar or any other instrument for that matter.

We did some art with the Djeco Birds of Paradise Coloured Sand Kit. It was a present from some good friends and let me tell you it is a hit! Thank you!

I must say that the time had with my kids is getting better and better as the years progress. Not to say that I did not like spending time with them since their births. However, as they grow and start talking and understanding more it is such a joy to have conversations with them and to share a joke or two. We are having a great time with both the Little Man and Lady, but our Little Man is surpassing our Little Lady in speech (obviously!) and he wants an explanation for everything. And the most rewarding times are when he is actually listening and sucking it all in and he exudes pride and confidence when we let him make his own decisions within the limits that we set for him. Just priceless times we are living, really!

And talking about priceless… I have this angel on our mantelpiece. I love it. It brings me joy each time I look at it. It was a present from my sister when the Little Lady was born. I hope that you have your angel watching over you making sure you are safe, healthy and happy.

oh, and one last mention relating to my last post. The Polka Dott Cone Shaped Bunny is made by Mymimi. I think it must be sold out as I couldn’t find it on sale on her website… I need to confirm that it was from her though but I am pretty sure she made it.

Enjoy the last few days of 2010.

2011, I am ready!


Christmas Eve 2010

Well, there are still 6 minutes left to Christmas Eve but I want to share our day with you. It was a good day. I am always so happy when H is home and all the chaos is still going on but we are together in it! aahhh!

A couple of days ago we went to the Bright Nights at Stanley Park and had lots of fun. Little Lady was mesmerised but the train ride!

We visited the farm there and there were lots of beautiful attractions along the way.

Some of today was spent at our good friends’ house with their family. We exchanged gifts and enjoyed an alcoholic beverage and had a great time all in all! Look at what Ani got, isn’t it just too cute? I do want to let you know where it is from but the Little Lady is sleeping with it now and I wouldn’t want to disturb her!

It really is cuter in real life!

The Christmas tree from our friends’ place. I will go off to nodland now to dream of the morning when my Little People wake up and rush to the Christmas tree to open their presents. Can’t wait to see the joy in their faces!

Sweet dreams!


Love this Nativity Set!

I just came across this nativity set via Tangled Happy. Isn’t it just beautiful?

I think this is going to be my project for next year as I don’t think I can make it happen in time for tomorrow, but maybe for Armenian Christmas??

I love this community of sharing patterns and creativity. Such wonderful gifted individuals across this universe! Thank you!

Free downloads of the nativity set pattern if you are interested in making it. If you do take on this endeavour, I would love to see the result!
