Holiday Craftings (part 1)

Did you have a merry little Christmas?

I did. Good food, nice gifts and more importantly, family!

I haven't post much last weeks... Well, I'm in my first trimester, and I'm really tired, all the time! And I crafted, a lot... So now I'm gonna kick my ass a bit and and post all the stuff I did (and Mariann's too!)

painting original art for my FIL

Idea from Bakerella

This was for my divorced uncle that always makes himself simple cookies. I bought him fun shaped cutter and made up a pre-made recipe and included the recipe's list of liquid ingredients and steps. He liked it.

sewn a felt owl on for my upcoming nephew

Poptart iPod Cozy for my cousin

BBQ Apron for my FIL (the modeling BF asked his head to be cut off..)

His children and his wife bought him a mini-laptop so he didn't had many gift to open... So I made him a little one. "Chez ce cher Serge" is a running gag because it's kind of difficult to say at first time. Try it, you'll see!

stay tunned, there will be many more stuff to come!

I almost forgot, but I feel the need to enter this week:

Blessed Yule!

Lovely Holly King illustration by Ironshod in dA

Have a Blessed Yule everyone!

I'm sorry for the lack of updating... I'm crafting so much those days! And everything I do are for persons that might end up here. So I can show you since I don't want to spoil... I promise lots of post after Christmas!

I'm also really dizzy and nauseous pretty much all the time... But it's okay compared to last time... I had to take diclectin pills for 7½ months!

...and for the ladies not familiar with Yule... Google it!

The big news!

I'm pregnant!

I felt really tired for the past month, and last time I had my period was around Halloween. So today I bought a drugstore test and it rapidly became ++ (whiting a second!). So I need to get a appointment to the doc to confirm, then I call the midwifes :P

All Mariann's room layout as to be re-think now...

p.s: picture are archive from Mariann 32 weeks's echo

W.I.P. The Play kitchen!

I'm not finished yet. I need to take about 3mm off of the oven door in order for it to close. >___>
But everything else is pretty much done, So I felt like showing you!

I need to paint the inside of the fridge's door.
I'm kind of happy with how full the fridge is :)

Yes, this is a dog bowl. The faucet is a real one taken on ebay for realllllly cheap! All the little ustensils were bought at the dollar store.

Burners are old CD which I've drawn a swirl with sharpies on. Buttons were old washer buttons found were I found the TV cabinet (the guy gave them to me...)

I painted this backyard scene and made the (tiny) drapes

Here's the before shot:

what I still need to do/find:
A grid
something to make an oven element
long enough screws to screw the burners' buttons.
Something nice to put next to the window; art, spice rack....

She's supposed to get "stainless steal" pots and dishes for Christmas from her god-parents.

I feel like showing this to:


Also ladies, I've updated my Etsy shop with great felt food you can get for yours or some else's kids (or for yourself...They make nice pin cushions!)

If you have any ideas to improve this, feel free to tell!

The Humble Tree

Today Mariann is 18th Month old. A year and a half.
I've been home since. I heard some woman that couldn't stand being at home.
Well, sorry for those, but I truly enjoy it!
I wouldn't picture myself going to a job that I don't like, having to drop her and pic her from day care everyday, and doing all the chores on top of that because my studying Boyfriend got LOTS of homework and assignments.
I would truly be burned out.

We did a banana bread.

..Had to run a quality test...


Here is our tree for this year.

I left the first part and stood it on a table. there's a shelf so we'll be able to put the gift there :) (well, the really really really well enveloped ones)
I haven't put any ornament on the first row. Nothing for the graby hands!
I think I need to make a skirt..

Last year we had a huge, natural tree. It was beautiful! I'll post it once I find the pic somewhere on this computer... It had fabric poinsettias, birds, rubans...
All that belongs to my mom. And so does this present fake tree.

But all the ornaments in it are mine. Yay! There's not much. Vintage ones that belonged to my Grand-Mother. A couple of "baby's 1st" including two of my cousin's. A 6 year-old school project from myself (a still looking good apple!) wooden forms and 2-3 bows.
I like it, actually.
But it feels alone!
I haven't put up the other deco. It's for another day...

I'm linking to Reoshel cause I finaly have an holiday thing to show :)
