“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogantor rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,endures all things.” I Corinthians 13:4-7
I made a cake for my Valentine this year. Thought I’d try one of his favorite cakes: The Red Velvet Delight. 🙂
A ring holder makes a for special gift idea.
No time for baking and need a cake for a special occasion? My dear friend Daris, introduced me to the best Red Velvet Cake that money can buy from Nothing Bunt Cake . You will only want more!
After a typical outing downtown of walking the streets in Oslo, drinking coffee, and munching on pastries, I found a new changing pad for my super Nova (baby’s name). It was a steal.
The only downside was that it had no hemp for hanging purposes. So, why am I hanging the pad? Simply put, our place is so small that we don’t have a separate bedroom for the baby, and I had to create a changing station in the bathroom instead. Needless to say, I would like the bathroom to look appealing to guests, and still be functional for everyday living!
What did I do?
1. I took an old neckless, made a loop, and sewed it to the chaining pad.
2. For looks I added an ornament, and hung the changing pad on the wall!
Real simple, real fun.. Feel free to share with me your own ideas!
As usual, I was shopping for groceries after work and took my obligatory “exited-expecting-mom-stroll” down the baby isle. While I was looking at binkies for the millionth time, I reached the same disappointing conclusion as always: that I needed to go to a expensive boutique to get the ones with a little personality (that does not include Disney or Dora the Explora)!
I found myself staring at a couple of neutral pacifiers which promised that 1.) they had the perfect nub for a little one to suck on (only in natural and good materials of course) and, 2.) with a breathable plastic rim, which is much better for sensitive skin. Very impressive I must say, but the only drawback was that those binkies’ designs were making me yawn on the inside. sigh.
Then the thought hit me. It would only take a couple crystals, some half-pearls, strong glue, and some stunning ribbons to outshine the contenders. Easy.
1. It’s helpful to create your design before you start gluing on your gems. Use a strong glue that will make it impossible for a child to loosen the crystals.
2. Apply your crystals with a pair of tweezers.
