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!

We had a fantastic craft sale – it was cosy, friendly, filled with great items and lots of people came.


Our table at the sale – Melina of Palomaria and I shared a table. It was great as our creations complemented each other and the table looked great!

Lots of people were interested in our jewellery – it was really sweet to have young girls ooing and aahing over them! It is quite satisfying to have your work appreciated because sometimes I am too close to it…

and here we are, Meli and I. We had a lot of fun together! Glad to have her as a friend.

Here is Meli’s work. Beautiful. You will have so much fun visiting Palomaria’s Etsy shop.

I want to thank all my friends who came to see me there and everyone who supported us in this sale.

I want to continue creating and slowly but surely I will. Time is the issue as with all mothers who juggle work, kids and home… however, there aren’t any deadlines to creating and so I will continue!

I think I am ready for the craft sale which starts later on today – yay!

I want to share a few things that put a smile on my face this week…

We made vegan one bit brownies – so yummy – recipe taken from Cara Roth’s blog

I had to keep my neck warm this week with all this cold weather…



A book that lifts my spirits…


It is called “I will make miracles” by Susie Morgenstern, illustrated by

Jiang Hong Chen – It is truly magical looking towards a better world, an ideal world!

And, I finally decided on how to package my creations…

I had some tags made at MOO, they did a fabulous job! What do you think?

and a necklace I picked up during my flea market trip…


And here is a taster of what will be on sale at the craft sale…

and here is a reminder of time and place…

see you then!
