Well hello! I noticed I haven't popped into this space for close to one year and although I always intend to start regularly blogging again it just never really works out that way. I've been spending my days tending to the whims and fancies of my imaginative and playful three year old, baking, gardening and jumping in puddles. I do hope I can pop into the space again regularly, to share what I've been looking at, what's been inspiring me and what I've been doing. Fingers crossed!

craft time!

I couldn't wait until my little Luka was old enough to enjoy some craft time. We are often collaborating our craft especially when it comes to gift giving. I thought it would be nice to share some of our weekly collaborations.

After seeing the origami gift bow tutorial on Pinterest I thought it would be a great idea to use one of Luka's paintings. I set him up with some yellow craft paper and some black paint and sat back to let him do the rest. After the paint dried and Luka went to bed I went to work folding and creasing our bow. The next day our gift was wrapped!
