After a lot of thinking I have decided to take this month “off” from blogging to focus in a few things I want to finish before the year ends. Little one’s birthday is this weekend and although I’m not making everything myself (thank you party supplier!), I want to finish up a few special things I promised (like a robot piñata!).
Following is Christmas, with lots of projects to decorate the house, not mentioning the little gifts I want to make to my family and friends, that will need some quality time. I hope I can still share some of these projects in the New Year with you when all the madness ends!
I hope you guys have an amazing Christmas with lots of love from family and friends, and a Happy New Year with full of new challenges and dreams to come true. See you next year!
Last week I missed “Nature in the home”. I won’t lie, I find really difficult sometimes to juggle life and blogging and the same time, it’s a bit frustrating as I love sharing my love for certain things (like being part of this wonderful project) and write things that meant a lot to me, I really admire all the wonderful bloggers (and mothers) that can easily do both.
This week I’m sharing this picture of my little corner in our bedroom. I love to fill “my side” of the bed with things that make me happy, so at the end of the day I can turn around and remind myself of the wonderful things I have in my life.

This week inspiring artist is Chloe Fleury, a french paper artist based in California that makes the most beautiful, colourful and creative pieces of art, or what she calls “paper illustrations”. She transform paper into 3D creations, bringing them to live by video sometimes, and the result it’s very special.
If you are a crafty person you might already know about Kollabora. But if you don’t, I wanted to introduce you to this amazing community that offers a platform for makers to upload their projects (often a step-by-step guide), browse DIY/tutorials from all kind of other makers around the world, receive and give feedback, and even buy some materials for your next DIY project (how cool is that?).

Don’t worry there’s all kind of projects for all levels and skills, I hope you get inspired and get a bit crafty this Xmas.

This little boy needs a haircut urgently, his crazy hair echoes his cheekiness these days. Play doh it’s now a regular activity around the house, lots of pizza, cakes and robots making. Soon he will be TWO. Dear life, could you stop passing by so fast?
