Creative with food


I love making things and treating my girls with jummie and healthy food ( and some sweets too of course), it has become a tradition to make a surprise breakfast for them in the weekend or sometimes a surprise snack after school. The surprise snack/breakfast is all about presentation, sometimes just a few nice things on a pretty tray but most of the time I use a theme, with choosing a special plate or cutting a sandwich in a certain way the breakfast becomes special and fun and the kids enjoy eating it, not that they normally don't eat their food, but this way it's makes it more special and I enjoy making it ! Do you have a tradition like this? I hope the girls will take this tradition in their memories and perhaps one day will treat their children with suprise breakfasts in the weekend....

La Roulotte




About 5 years ago we build a Roulotte (wooden playhouse) for the girls in the garden, the Roulotte had a bench, a playkitchen etc and the girls loved playing in it. Lately the Roulotte has been negleted and was a bit worn out so we decided to give it a make over and make it more suitable for teenagers. We took out the bench, playkitchen and used left over laminate to put in a new floor. I used scarp mdf  to cover some of the wood and painted it in a fresh white. 
Yesterday Mila and I redecorated the Roulotte  to give it a fresh and modern look. I made cushions that can be used to make a little lounge area but can also layed over the floor to create a big bed for sleepovers.

Here you can see the Roulotte how it was before...

( the cute teatowel is from Donna Wilson, cushions from Hema and Ikea and the garden prints by Jessica Nielsen )

Party time!


Mila celebrated her 11th birthday yesterday, here are some pictures of her birthday party. The party was all about foxes, rabbits and we had a jummie high tea with scones, carrot cake and lots of cookies. Mila and I worked together on creating this party, she made the cute fox drawing that we used for the invitation and the decorations.I think creating the party together with her was my favourite part of the party, I love crafting with my girls!

Almost Party time....



Mila is celebrating her 11th birthday this sunday, I cannot believe it was already 1 year ago that she had her Moonrise kingdom party!
This year we started very late with party planning because we just could not decide on a nice birthday theme. Lots of ideas came to our head but only just a few weeks ago we decided to go with the theme: what Mila loves! Mila loves drawing, foxes and other furry animals,high tea's, blue and purple. So I let her make a few drawings and we choose our favourite and made it into this sweet fox birthday card. 
For the party we are making Pinatas and we will have a photobooth too... I look forward on sharing more pictures soon!
