Watercolor succulents

I warned you I was obsessed with these plants. Now is watercolor time. I have been watching youtube tutorials so I can get better at using watercolor but I find it so hard. Here you have my progress in chronological order, I think the last three are much better, don’t you think? I guess I’ll…

Old breadbox renovation

So I had this old rusty breadbox in my garage waiting for me to gather enough courage to do something with it. I’ve been meaning to dive into the world of renovating furniture ( I have a new sander that I got for my birthday last year to use for the first time) but, finally,…

Handbox summer kit contest

Lately I only create diys for contests because my life has been crazy these days: spring break away to visit my parents, my cousin’s wedding,  a new niece and nephew have been born, classes are about to finish… Últimamente solo creo diys para concursos y es que mi vida ha sido un poco de locos…

Succulent obsession

Welcome back spring! I’ve missed you. A lot. ¡Bienvenida primavera! Te he echado de menos. Mucho. Spring has brought a new obsession to my house: succulents. I have been stealing succulents in my mother-in-law’s balcony and my grandma’s patio. I have also bought some different ones and I’ve filled a pot with their leaves for…

Pincushion with ceys montack

So I’m back sooner than I expected with a contest my colleague itzidreams told me about. This time is a glue brand called ceys montack that is giving away a Polaroid camera and since the first pincushion I made broke, I thought I could create from scratch another one. Estoy de vuelta más pronto de…

Saint Valentine’s diy

I have never been a fan of Saint Valentine. I have always thought is just an invention to spend money and my husband and I never do anything special on the 14th of february. Nunca he sido fan de San Valentín. Siempre he creído que era una invención para gastar dinero y mi marido y…

Diy Christmas Wreath

Yes, I know I am not discovering any new diy. Pinterest is full of Christmas wreaths but my front door was so naked that I went to a cheap store to solve its problem. I bought a plastic foam circle, cut it and wrapped it with some nice fabric. The rest is history my friends!…

Ikea family on the wall

I don’t have that many pictures hanging from the walls at home but I found this VÄXBO in Ikea and couldn’t help but plan a project for it. Recently I have decided that my dining room lacks some color and I chose mustard as the main color to give some light and mint as a…

Castanyada…the Catalan fall tradition

Hi stringers! I’m so sad that this year we’re not gonna throw a Halloween party. I have to teach on the 31st and Jordi has to work too so we’ll have to wait for next year. We are thinking about changing the party’s format to an afternoon children party since all our friends have children…

How to create a dreamcatcher 

I keep on creating decorations for Biel’s second birthday party. With this last clue I guess there’s no doubt the theme for the party is INDIANS ( or Native Americans as they should be called, Columbus’ fault). I have to admit it was a little bit difficult to learn how to make dreamcatchers. I found…

Coloring books, no thanks!

It all started with the idea that adult coloring books were relaxing. The first time I saw this new hobby was at a museum in Oslo. The new garden was everywhere but it didn’t appeal to me at all. Now I’ve found out there are coloring books about everything and not only about mandalas and…

Elf and fairy garden

I love gardening (I like plants, flowers though I always kill them and getting my hands dirty) and if I can combine gardening with crafting, it sounds like the best idea in the world. I have been meaning to do this little garden for a while but I haven’t found the time until now that…
