…this space has been neglected for the past few months. Sleeping always wins over screen time, and when I seat down in my desk trying to put some (coherent) words together, things just don’t flow.

Having a new baby around again is easier yet more tiring. We are still finding our way into this “two-children-under-five” reality, Matias went through a lot of changes the first few weeks, it wasn’t an easy transition but with lots (LOTS) of patient and love we are heading to a better place where everyone’s space and needs are fulfilled.

In a word I’m simply EXHAUSTED. We have the fortunate to have  both my mum and in laws visiting since Olivia arrived, lots of help and hands to make things easier, I couldn’t be more grateful for that. Reality with two kids will hit soon when they leave, I think I’m ready for the challenge, I would need to get organised (not my strength), but hey, my mum could do it with THREE, so do I.

Life has never been so busy and tiring yet my heart feels full. I’m embracing chaos, sleepless nights and messiness as a reflection that I’m a mother of two now, the most important job I would ever have. Sorry if only kids photos have been filling this blog lately, I promise to start sharing more exciting things I’m (slowly) been working on soon.

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Matias: Early morning iPad amusement (when you have a new baby in tow you NEED to rely on something to get yourself sorted in the mornings!)

Olivia: Getting more expressive every day, I’m enjoying the giggles and laughs so much these days.

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Matias: Eating a Peppa Pig ice cream which means he is being spoiled this week by his visiting grandparents  from Canada.

Olivia: Cuddles with daddy wearing a new headband (I’m secretly enjoying buying girly things for her).

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Matias: A very serious face. Pretty much sums up the last couple of weeks. Poor little guy, his world turned upside down, sharing the attention hasn’t been easy.

Olivia: Growing and leaving those newborn days behind. She loves to smile and started to make those sweet little baby noises, they melt my heart.

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Matias: Making a funny (tiger) face from a picture we made that day. We like putting random drops of paint in a piece of paper and fold it in half, I use to do as a kid and remember how fun it was!

Olivia: She is 5- 1/2 weeks old. She loves to listen to his brother and follow him with her sight. I find that very sweet x

Rolling pin printing {DIY roundup}

If I’m honest, I’ll admit it’s been a bit difficult to follow my blog calendar this week. Life with a toddler plus other personal things didn’t gave me enough time to plan my next project. So instead of posting a personal one this monday I’m sharing a roundup of rolling pin printing DIY projects I found in the web (my latest obsession).

These are my favourite three:

rollingpin-printing1

1// Rolling pin stamps via Alissa Burke blog

rollingpin-printing2

2// Rolling pin wrapping paper DIY via yuppielove.org

rollingpin-printing3

3// Rolling out a lace print DIY via Helana and Ali

It looks so easy and fun to make and the results are so pretty, my favourite is the one using lace (3). These are perfect for making your own wrapping paper for Xmas presents this year. The possibilities are endless, I can’t way to try my own!
