Oh The Places you’ll go by Dr Seuss

As a part of our bedtime routine we read Matias three books before he goes to bed. He gets to choose and even attempt to “read” some, which I find incredibly cute. Lately he’s been very keen on reading Dr Seuss stories, they are funny, the rhymes are great to keep him engage and the illustrations are beautiful and so unique.

Oh The Places You’ll Go is my favourite one, you can read it here (but I would recommend you to buy the book!), although a children’s book, anyone can relate with the beautiful and encouraging story. I don’t mind reading it every night, I think every child (and parent) should.

This is one of my favourite parts of the book:

“…

NO!  That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.

You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high!  

Ready for anything under the sky.  

Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

There is fun to be done!

There are points to be scored.

There are games to be won….”

Do you have any favourite Dr Seuss book? There’s any other similar author you like to read to your children?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone

If you are like me, you are still probably  looking for Father’s day last minute ideas. We are planning to make either cookies or a cake for daddy today as a final home made present. I always leave the wrapping at the end so I thought it would be nice to design and share some cute free printable to help you give the extra touches for dad’s special day.

I like the idea of leaving surprising sweet notes around the house, or simply using them as tags for presents. Download for free here and enjoy!

This Sunday is Father’s Day  in the UK. I’ve spent the last couple of days browsing the internet for some cool ideas, DIY projects and gifts inspiration, there’s a lot of “ties” and “suits” themes, I found it a bit tricky to find something different.

It’s hard not to fall into the cliché presents (although I have to say I totally did!), at the end of the day it’s a gesture to remind all the dads out there that we care about them, their support and unconditional love. Dads are so important in this “juggling act” that’s being a family, often underestimated but this day it’s a good day to do something nice to them.

So here are a few ideas I found around:

3// Father’s Day Printable Typography Glasses

4// Manly Man Soap Set

5// (I couldn’t find the source of this photo but I think it comes from this site)

Any other ideas for this Sunday? What you guys are making/buying for dad?

Living Arrow 23/52  “It feels like summer”

This weekend it really started to feel like summer. We love to spend most of the time outside playing in the sandpit, or just chilling in the chairs sunbathing. Summer times we are ready!

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:

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!
