Our way wall decoration

Are you that kind of a person that love family photos as a decoration on your walls? YES, I AM! :) hi hi Admit it!!! And proud of it :)
I bought lots of frames in Ikea (where else) in different colors, but I didn't liked it anymore that way, so I decided to do a touch up on them :)
Let's see...
Here it is before...

I just simply spray painted the frames in which color??? White, sure! :)

And that's it :) I LOVE it now! :)

Memories and frames,


I was so busy lately, that I didn't even post anything here, but I have lots of new projects to show you... But because it's ''that'' time of the year again, I have something ''seasonal'' here for you :) ready? :)

It's something sweet-scary :) hi hi
You can see before and after here:

I got a huge pumpkin from my mother in law and used it as a front door decoration.

I was some drilling in the pumpkin and making holes big enough, to stick some backyard branches in it.
I spray painted branches with white spray paint...

I printed out some scary(almost cute) ''faces'' and stick them on branches with hot glue gun.

And I have a new addition in my craft room! It's a chalk paint :) And it comes very handy on a dark halloween :) wanna see what I did? :) I just played around with it and make it scary funny for the friends who come on a visit :)

Isn't that cool? :) Love chalk paint, and will use it for more and more stuff! hi hi
These little fingers helped me with making ghosts...

Their finished project(ghosts) :

And we are almost finished... Just a touch up more :)

Here it is with a lamp, that is creeping ''everybody'' out at night... hi hi

P.S.: I have to mention my little photographer that took every single photo here and helped me out on this fun project :)

Be scared and witched,

We all adore Bling Bling! Right??? :)

Because my girls are all into princesses,  I wanted to make something glittery and ''princessy'' for them :) When you walk in our apartment you can immediately see the wooden fonts on the kids room Princesses room :)
But those were just bought in a store and glued on, nothing special, nothing girly... See??? Blah blah blah... :/

What I did? I spray painted those wooden fonts white!

With art potch(mod potch) I helped to glue the glitters on like here:

I waited the glue to dry and then I glued pink and purple plastic crystals on and a few swarowski crystals.
I just had to glue new and stylish fonts on the door :) It looks like this now :)

We are super happy with the result, because we all like bling bling! At least the feminine side of our family :) hi hi

Sparkles in the eyes,

I will find lots of treasures...

I have something new for you :) something that is decorating our front door right now :)
Wanna see it? Here it is :

It's super easy to make this pretty door wreath...
Here are the steps:
1.) Go on a walk with your dog and your kids and find those treasures, these are super organic :)

2.) Find paperboard (I used the shoe box cover) and draw 2 circles, one bigger and one smaller... Then cut it out and tie a string on, that will help you to hang your door wreath

3.) Here comes the best part... Glue all the ''treasures'' on, with hot glue gun... at the end I added some ribbon and voila, that's it! :)
Here is my wreath hanged on our front door...

Bows and treasures,

Wow, I was busy these days... Had so much to do... driving my girls on ballet, kindergarten, school, work, renovation,etc... :)
But I have new project that I will share with you :) My mom&dad are renovating and I wanted to be a part of this renovation... If you know me, you know that I'm a DIY freak and I helped my parents with some ideas :) Totally ME :)
We pick out the right time, like you can see on the picture... It's not hot and it's raining... Perfect timing :)

And about the project... I had a spray paint in my hands and I need to say I'm a beginner with it, but I LOVE it!!!!! I bought 2 colors: white and shiny silver... Here it is:

I was spraying all the ''ugly'' things and make it fresh, modern and beautiful! 
Here is the ''ugly'' (80's) light switch, that I made fresh and modern, without spending all the money for new ones and without polluting the nature with throwing them in a trash... Because they were made out of plastic(like they usually are), I needed a plastic primer to spray it with, to prime for the white spray paint... Want to see the result???

And here is one vase, that wasn't the right color to fit in the modern line, we want to achieve, but I love the leave shapes on it... And now we have completely new vase, with just spray painting :)


 They(parents) had 3 big paintings with ''GOLD'' frame. Because we need to be in style, we need to have silver frames :) And that's the work for me :) I was happy doing it and I'm happy with the result. So is everybody else.... hi hi

That is not all I did, but it will we enough for now :) Will keep you updated, ok? :)

AUTUMN is here...

But the weather is still very summer-y... :) And yeah, I like it a lot! A lot! :) Don't even remember the end of September, to be so warm...25degrees C!!! wow!!!
But anyway, Autumn is here, so I had to make a project to feel the new season...

What I made is just a decoration. I had 2 little pumpkins, very organic, they grew on our garden...

Because I LOVE everything Shiny I was playing with glitters... I used a glue, brushes and glitters...

This is still very wet from glue, trying to dry, to be finished:

And here is my table decoration... I have to mention that all other things were found by my princesses on our daily walks... They call this pretty finds Treasures... So my bag is full of treasures when we get home :) hi hi

Warm Autumn colors,

''My first School Bag''

I know that it's almost one month since the school started, but I have one project to show you... I didn't took photos while I was making it(still regret it), but had a ''photo shooting''(hi hi) with a finished work.
Because my daughter went to school for the first time on 5th of September this year, I wanted to make something special and unique for her. And I decided that I will make her First school bag... I went to Ikea(totally love it) and found this perfect and ''love at first sight'' fabric. Then I was behind the sewing machine one day and voila... here it is:
Need to let you know that this isn't a big bag, it's little bigger than A4 notebook. She leaves the bag in school from monday to friday, doesn't carry any books or notebooks in it. It's enough for what she needs. I asked her if she wants to have a schoolbag like other kids in her class, but she told me that she loves what I did for her and that no one has the same and she wants exactly this bag! I love her! :)
Here is the back of the schoolbag:
 Opened school bag:

It has a pocket inside:

Here it is with my sweetie pie:

And here she is in her class room:

I can't wait for another project that I will do...  And of course I will show it to you... So, till the next time...

Sewing and learning,
