My first Mother’s Day

It’s Thursday now, Mother’s day was already some days ago, so I’m sure everyone has had enough of all the talks, adds and propaganda around this celebration. Still, I would like to share some pics of what this day¬†was for me ūüôā .

It ain’t actually my first Mother’s day, my girl turns 18 months Today so if we are counting it’s officially my second one, yet I don’t know why it felt like the first. It’s been a year and a half since a tiny beautiful baby girl came into our lives, and I must certainly tell you she has turned my life around. She now talks a lot and likes to express her love with hugs and cute cheek kisses that make up for every mess I have to pick up, every night up, every effort, everything <3.

We celebrated it with a meal with my mom and family, then another meal with my in-laws , and even a beautiful serenade my husband brought for me the night before (where he actually sang! :O ) and my first-ever letter drawn by ivi.

Last weekend : Destination wedding

Hello there!

I’ve been unable to post anything sooner, but I’m back on track! Like everytime we get to go out of town I present to you the weekend getaway report. This time we went to my cousin’s wedding in a beautiful former estate building, about 8 hours away from my hometown, we made a road trip out of it and we really enjoyed it!

For the event i sewed the flower girl dresses for ivi, my goddaughter and her little sister. Draw 2 sketches for the bride to choose, used a gorgeous polka dot tulle fabric I found in my last trip to L.A., made the dresses in a hippie-maxi dress style so they didn’t have that stif/too-formal feeling (I was looking for cool, relaxed sort of look) and add some green details according to the bride’s desire …voil√†!

It was my first time doing event gowns for little ones, and let me tell you it sure was tons of work but either way I loved it, can’t wait to start a new sewing project! Here the pics of the flower girls with their dresses, take a look…

Spring just logged in

Although Spring is still a few days away to officially begin, the feeling (and warmth) of this favorite season of mine is undeniable!

Just Today we were at ivi’s school Spring Egg Hunt, and the choice of costume for this year was a blue butterfly… Classic, always feminine, and besides, ivi just recently received a tulle blue skirt as a gift so …voil√†!

Tried my best not to get too excited (I’m a reckless diy-er), but a single craft shop ride was all it took to turn this into a DIY project… Interested in the how-to guide of these beautiful butterfly wings? If you are let me know and I’ll post it!

I would have loved to make this entirely from scratch, but in the real mom’s life you all will agree with me that sometimes it’s impossible! This time all I managed to do was gather the right items, turn a trim of black cotton fabric into a blouse and carefully design and cut these black felt wings… Hope you like the result!
