Our first birthday...

      It's been so long since I last posted something...There was no time for such thing and there still isn't actually ;-) but I couldn't resist to post here some pictures of the details of our first birthday party. Yes, our twins are already one year old and I had to make it special for them!

    This was a classic pirates and mermaids party and we had a lot of fun:

ok, this cake was actually a disaster, but finally I didn't care..


Burnt out light bulbs into glamorous Xmas tree ornaments


      Hello everyone! I guess that this is the best time of the year for people who love to craft and decorate, thus all the crafty bloggers! It took me more than I expected to finish crafting my new Xmas ornaments since I have so little free time these days. 
     This was a pretty recent idea, that's why I made so few, I usually give the burnt out light bulbs to a specific place for recycling :-)

   My materials were acrylic paint, glitter, nail polish (oh, yes!), instant glue, scrap fabric and ribbons in order to turn this:

    And these :

    Aren't they gorgeous?



Top angel Christmas ornament

   I wasn't too sleepy last night so I started making an ornament for the top of our Christmas tree. I had found this carton cone that had the remains of a golden thread on it which must have been one of my grandmothers sewing materials.

    I kept the thread for hanging the rest of the ornaments I'm about to make (yes, I will make a post about them :-)), and glued some scrap fabrics I had on the cone. (I'm sorry about the lack of pictures here but it was pretty late...)

I had to find a fancy head for my angel though, so I thought that a beer cap would do:

   It was too late to come with a better idea than wings out of paper, so..I made this awful drawings and tried to fix it while cutting it out... I know I can do better :

   Glued the pieces together and with a stapler Ι attached the wings on the cone. I used a big paperclip that I bent into a halo:


   So, it  is not that bad, is it?
 I'll be back soon with some more recycled ornaments!!!
