Superhero styled jars!

Last week I prepared some homemade playdough for my kids and some more for their new twin friends. I put them in jars in order to last longer in the fridge, but the result looked rather plain to me, so I decided to paint superhero logos on the lids. I also tried to make something that looks like a cape out of scrap fabric I still keep in an old shoe box..

Here are the superman and batman style playdough jars :-)   :

They kind of look like capes though, don't they? :-D


Up-cycle an old gemstone bracelet into a fashionable woven chain bracelet

It has literally been years since I last posted anything on my blog! There was no time at all for me during the last couple of years for such leisure time activities, however, I finally managed to find an opportunity to concern myself with my blog and post this up-cycled bracelet tutorial.

I used :

-a gemstone bracelet
- 2 pieces of steel chain (the size of the chain parts has to match approximately the distance between the gemstones)
- ribbon
-embroidery threads
-lobster clutch (you cannot see that in the picture, sorry:-( )

After you make a knot with the ribbon containing the ends of the chains and gemstone bracelet, twist the ribbon around the bracelet, through each chain part and between the gemstones as you can see on the picture below:

Afterwards, use the embroidery threads of your choice and make a knot on one side. Weave the threads through the chains:

I used the tutorial I found here , you can also find woven chain bracelet tutorials on youtube.
I repeated the same on the other side/chain and I made a final knot. Put on a lobster clutch and here is the result:

I think it's fabulous, what do you think?



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..
