A Tiny Christmas Decor

Hi again!!! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of November! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and then our favorite holiday: Christmas!! Since Thanksgiving is not celebrated in England, Christmas preparations have already started here. Many many markets, fairs, etc have been held since the first weekend of November and I’ve been doing a bit of crafting myself. I have this crazy intention to make lots of new decor for the home these next few weeks! So here’s holiday decor exhibit one: A wool and felt wreath. My blog friend Cathy Pascual is a FABULOUS wreath crafter and I

Away

I am so excited about today! I am going away. To Belfast. Alone! No kids or husband. Just a couple girlie friends and I! Last time I went alone overnight with just the girls was last year. To London. We had a really fun time (and hoping my friend would get back to the hotel safely since she was Boris biking drunk in the middle of the night) but this trip, not only will it be a few nights more but it requires an airplane ride. I remember my first big going away after I had M. She was about

Prepping for Christmas

Hello hello!! I know it’s October BUT, Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re a crafter, it’s time to start creating!! This Christmas I was to be a bit more motivated with our house decor. I want to keep it simple but I want to add more photos and craft goodness to our home. Even though I am a photographer, I have only one or two photos displayed and even then, they are a few years old AND no Jovie! Yikes, right?! Since both girls are in school, I hope to have more time to go through with

Little ‘Tude

  I live with a Miss Sassy Pants. I have no idea where she got her attitude from although both hubby and M said she got it from me {*ROLL EYES*}. This morning Jovie was messing around too much, playing with her dolly mostly, and every so many minutes I’d say, “Jovie, are you dressed for school yet?” And the answer I got was, “No, not yet!” So finally, 20 minutes before we had to go I said, “Jovie, do you need help putting your clothes on?” And her answer (with a lot of attitude), “Oh mommy, don’t be so

Home. Alone.

Journalist: So, what’s it like to be a stay-at-home-mom in the day time? Savitri: Blissfully dull! The girls have been in school for almost four weeks now. Since Jovie’s a June baby, she didn’t start full time from day one. Her first week, Thursday and Friday, she only went in the afternoon, 1:15-3:15p. The next week she went M-Fri 9a-12:30p and last week she went to school full-time, 9a-3:15p. Last week I made myself a schedule. Monday was grocery shopping and deep cleaning the downstairs. Tuesday I put more stuff from random boxes away and laundry. Wednesday I worked on

M’s Scrapbook Contest

Hello hello!! I am still alive!! The weather’s been great, the kids’ been busy and I’ve just been busy with them, house and photography. I am though itching to do lots of scrapbooking if nothing else!! Oh, and some sewing! In a month’s time we’ll be moving to a house just in the next village. We’ll miss our village but the girls will still be in the same school for a little bit longer, or Emma may move and Jovie stay – we’ll see, but there will be so many more positives at our new place than not and we’re
