Footprints in the snow...

That is strange...I just read the @OfficialBanker tweet this morning and found something about the footprints in the snow. Actually this is the quote of his tweet: "Footprints in the snow ruined my usual Thursday night game of Knock and Run. " -yeah, I know he is quite naughty, but so funny. Love reading his comments :)

Anyway, so I read that and found it strange, because I had a similar idea -not knocking on someone's door :) - this morning when I took my camera with me when I was walking with my kids to school/kindergarten...

The place we live, is quite small and not many people are using a footpath from our house to the village. Everyone likes driving to school to drop the kids off, but not me. I am enjoying the walk every day with my kids, this way we can talk about things.
This morning how I was walking back home alone I have noticed the footprints of ours was still untouched in the snow.

...and here is my two darling, Edward and Gigi :)

Wedding custom order in pictures

I have been contacted by Amy via email from my Artfire shop. Here is a part from her lovely message:

"Hi, I have been trawling the internet for months looking for the perfect corsage/broach to attach to the hip of my wedding dress."

After a few email's with details size, design and colour choice. I have set up a Customer order for Amy in my Etsy shop.

 Here is the fabric and a center piece choice.

 After cutting all the petals by hand and forming them by singing their edges, I am ready for sew the little petals together. I never use glue on my handmade flowers, as they last longer if they sewn together and look much prettier too. Quality is really important to me.

 Here is the finished one of a kind flower for Amy.

If you like to order a custom piece, please contact me via my Etsy shop or my email

Thank you for visiting my blog.

My Birthday was on last Saturday and look how my kids made my day special!
Edward wrote me a poem and Gigi wrapped up her little "unwanted" things in a tissue paper.
I was so happy to open up my present, what she was wrapping up herself with so much Love...that sort of presents you can't buy in shops...just thinking back put tears into my eyes again...

Here they singing me Happy Birthday again in the kitchen. They decorated the table for me with Edward's origami heart and flowers.

Gigi made some confetti, she wrote her name on every each of the paper cuttings and after sprinkled them on the carpet for me all the way to the kitchen.
...yes,I know she wrote her name wrong way around :)

Edward made some confetti too and he put them on my laptop :)
