I’m very pleased and happy to share with you the reason of my absence this year on my blog, I’ve been working on my online shop Our Little Tales.

So here we are at the start line again, making a balance of what happened (or didn’t happen) last year in order to move forward and make new decisions. I would be lying if I say it was an easy year, quite the opposite actually, but I cannot look back without a smile knowing it was the year another beautiful little person entered our lives, expanding our hearts and family in size, bringing pure joy and love.

It would be unnecessary to point out the reasons why this year was a big hurdle, but in a nutshell, sleep deprivation plus the demands of two little people 24/7 for a whole year can take its toll deeply, certainly it did on me.  I knew this New Year I needed to make some changes to go through this phase in a more optimistic and easy way,  instead of listing unrealistic and specific resolutions, I promise myself one thing, to really take care of myself first.

Physically, emotionally and mentally, but more importantly nurturing my creative side again as if it was “another baby” in my life it’s a top priority. It took me a while to realise being creative and the need to create isn’t something I do but something I am. This year is all about reclaiming that place in my heart and let it know I haven’t forgotten about it, as my kids grow I can see the importance of letting them know their mum has dreams too, and she is following them, so one day they will hopefully be inspired by that and follow their own.

Wishing you a great 2016 people!

Hello dear friends.

It’s been a while since my last decent post. Olivia has settle little by little so now that we have a routine(ish) it’s time for me to start finding the time to explore and connect with my inner creative. I always find that a very good way to do that is signing up in a creative course. I’ve done that a few times in the past, an opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn a new skill and find that momentum to make something new and fresh.

This month I will be attending this Brush Lettering Workshop, with one of my favourite Illustrator Emma Block, (I wrote a post about her here). I’m looking forward to learn this beautiful skill and start making beautiful things, Christmas cards maybe?

P.S. If you haven’t notice I’m working on a brand new portfolio, I thought it was time to refresh this site and push myself into a new direction. I’m ready for some new changes.

Thank you for keep visiting this little space, I promise to start blogging more often, I really missed it.

Olivia: Growing up fast, laying in her brother’s new space mat. I love how expressive she has become and oh boy, she is a real character!

P.S I’m already so behind with this project, I explained some of the reasons in my last post.

It’s 22:22 and I’m debating if closing my laptop right now or keep trying to write something coherent to share. The truth is that although my intentions to keep this space updated are good, reality hits me like a non stoppable train going 1000 kph every.single.time.

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!
