DIY Christmas wreath

This year is the first time in over 10 years that I’m going to have a Christmas tree in the house. Since moving out of my parent’s home it’s been ages since I’ve decorated for the festive season, so I’m really amped to be filling our house with a tree and all sorts of pretty cheerful things.

DIY Guest room and study

DIY Guest room and study-1

Now that we have a little one on her way, Shane and I needed to transform our study into the babies room and our spare room into the study, but we still wanted to have the option of using the study as a guest bedroom. So I went looking for some reference on how we could do exactly that in a compact and clever way.

My very clever husband then had a look at all the reference I gave him, adapted one of the ideas and then drew up the plans for our DIY Guest room/study. He then set out to build it by himself, which I was a bit apprehensive about, but now that it’s complete and flipping awesome, I will never ever question his ability to wield a hammer and saw again.

Wooden floor of love

October 29, 2013

parquet-flooring-2

Shane and I wanted to add something to the new house that was super personal and that we would never change (unlike furniture, decor etc). So when we had our wooden floors redone we took one of the parquet pieces and got the printer downstairs to laser cut our names into it before it was sanded and sealed.

Turned out so well and we’ve placed it right by the one balcony door so we can see it everyday. I love my Shane.

Shiny party.

pom-poms-3

I love it when people make an effort to brighten up a place for a party. This year I want glitter and confetti and the balloons and pom poms at my birthday. Stuff like this automatically makes me as happy as a pig in mud flavoured pudding.

I WANT this Pom Pom Installation, which I don’t think will be that hard to replicate.

Wrap it up all nice and pretty.

giftwrap-2

To go with the 2 gift idea posts I did last week, I thought I would compile one just on gift wrapping. I’ve been seeing some very sweet and easy ways to spruce up your pressies this Christmas which I thought I would share with you guys.

These are all D.I.Y gift wrapping ideas, some are easier than others to make, depending on if you have 2 left hands or not (ok so that doesn’t have the same impact as the foot analogy, but you know what I’m getting at). So have a look and see what you think… My 2 favourites are the confetti wrapping and the pompoms – they’re just so much fun!

The Awesome Project.

August 27, 2012

Ok i’m in love with every single one of these porcelain pieces that are part of The Awesome Project.  Each one is designed and hand-decorated individually so they are super unique and special. They are so delicate and pretty, if I had a wish list, at least ALL of these things would be on it. And they have a cool logo to boot.

– An experimental journey of a multidisciplinary creative duo (illustrator Madalina Andronic designer Claudiu Stefan) through the awesome milky-silky world of porcelain, with a touch of Romanian folklore. Our wish is to create heart-to-heart, beautifully adorned decorative objects for individuals and homes. All the pieces are designed and hand-decorated individually, using porcelain, underglaze colours, stoneware glazes and love.
