PL Week 1

Whoohoo! Go my cover page/week one done! Now I am working on week two! I have a lot of scrapbooking to do but I am very much organized in terms of keeping track of all the day-to-day highlights/happenings up to day 12! I haven’t been like this in ages — since I didn’t have a job anymore basically — and it’s quite comforting! For my PL, I don’t want to necessarily document every single thing we did everyday. I want to highlight what we/I did or thought of that week. So for my week one, I added two sewing photos,

WPlus9: Day 3 + Fabric Dolly

This Christmas I really feel like making all sorts of stuff. Whether I get to them is another story but I really am feeling it!! I have a few cute projects that I will share in the next few days but one I am super excited about is this one: A fabric doll for Jovie! And the pattern pieces are FREE! Aren’t they adorable? I am going to make a little Chloe — a short hair doll basically. And hope to get started cutting tomorrow night! I have the pdf files downloaded already. Wish me luck!! I also looked at

WPlus9: Day 2

Hiya! Hope my American friends had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We spent our in Amsterdam this year. We did lots of exploring, visited a few museums and for Thanksgiving dinner, we had our first Rijsstafel. Our mail pick-up schedule got mixed up last week and I just received my WPlus9 goodies today and WOW, another beautiful set by Dawn!! This month’s release is full of LOVE and since I always seem to be making something for the girls, I thought that today, I’d create a little something using the Valentine Wishes set + matching dies for my fab husband. It’s

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

Happy Thoughts

Today I will be thinking about Jovie a lot. Tonight will be our last 3-yr-old hugs, kisses, talks, giggles, laughs and cuddles. Tomorrow, she’ll be a sweet little 4-yrs-old. She can’t wait and today she said (in her oh so sweet voice): It’s ok, mommy, I have to grow up sometimes. But I’ll always be your baby girl! Ahhhhh… she’s even speaking like a big girl! Since I was feeling a bit nostalgic and melancholic, I made a card using WPlus9’s new goodies (coming out June 5th) that’s soft and sweet. Hope you like and before you go, do visit

Baby Girl’s Card

Happy Sunday!! It’s BEAUTIFUL in England today and the perfect day to celebrate an early birthday! It’ll be Jovie’s birthday in a couple of days and due to our super busy schedule, we decided to do something special today. Can you believe she’ll be four on Tuesday?!?!?! Where did the time go?!?! So later today, after some more outside play, hubby’s going to make a cake and we’ll fire up the grill for a family BBQ. YAY! Last night (I know, last minute, but we just got back from holiday) I made her a sweet little card with all her
