This is a huge collab from a large team of amazing designers to remind you to enjoy life and your family.

Bouille's DH passed away suddenly a few weeks ago. He was not only a beloved husband, but also a cherished father for their 2 young children.
This kit is a tribute to him -  happy, full of energy, smiley, fun and without limits.
This kit is full of love... play, have fun with it - get it here!

I had the opertunity to be part of this amazing, heartfelt "digi get-together"

It really put things into perspective....

New toy

Sean gave me a present the other day (ok... I admit it was my birthday...) and my jaw almost hit the floor... a Canon EF Macro 180mm 3.5 L lens!!! I absolutely LOVE it!!! Though I don't have a tripod so my attempts of macro are a little hit and miss but - wow - the quality!!!! 
Some samples...

Have a great day!

I got sent this image on the mail the other day and it is exactly how my brain feel!!! I've got so many things going on!!!

Then I have days like today when all these "balls" just seem to lead no-where!!!! I'm trying to get things done and still nothing happens!!! My list is still just as long and getting longer by the minute!!!

(According to the same email, Men only have two balls and they consume all their thoughts... hmm.....)

They're up!

Ok, so the famous (or is it "infamous") curtains are up and some other bits and pieces as well... I'm very pleased with the curtains, never sewn anything so well before. I admit they are not "fancy" in any way but fancy isn't really my style.

Did some tweeking on Kian's room as well.So, yes I like IKEA but who doesn't!?
Will be back with more photos ones the "house" is done
Have a great day!

I've got a new project ...

You all know how much my daughter loves girly things, especially princesses and ballerinas. Well, Freya has moved out of her cot and is a "Big" girl now (her words) she "needs" (her words) a "princess bed"...
We had a look on the net and found several but she fell in love with this one from Matrix - note the price! Ok, so I'm NOT spending $1200 on a theme bed that she might like for a year or two! Plan B... make one my self!
Found this similar design bed frame at IKEA, no slide but that's a bonus since she wouldn't do much sleeping if there were = $350!!!
A tin of white paint, a roller and a few hours later...voila!
She LOVES it!!! I've spent most of today laying down underneith together with all her toys, being tucked in by my daughter over and over again whilst she's been "sleeping" on top!Last night when we first showed it to her and she climbed in for the first time, her exact words were "Mamma, Daddy - I LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much!!! I love you!" - How sweet is that!
I was worried about the hight and her climbing in and out, but the little monkey she is, that's not a problem at all!
Now I can start measuring and get sewing on the "house" underneith. I've got all the materials and even some new fabric to make new curtains for the room as well.
The light pink linnen = curtain fabric
Purpely pink = is for the "house"
Yellow, green, small and large flowers for "house" curtains, pillows and other bits...

I think I better get started!
I'll show you the result when it is all done!

Have a great day!

The summer is coming to an end...

Can you believe it is already September tomorrow!!! OMG!!! Where did the time go??? We have had such a busy and wonderful summer.
First with our holiday back home in Sweden and then my brother and his girlfriend came to visit us here for 3 weeks, only left us Thursday last week. Now we are trying to get back to "normal" again but got news from the nursery that they have postponed the start until the end of September due to the new influenza... Poor kids are going to go mad and me too!!!

So to keep them busy I enrolled Freya for some "ballet"classes since she literally lives in her ballerina outfit and today was the first class - needless to say she LOVED it! She tippy toed all over the place, did pirouettes, splits and skips, stopped, shouted BRAVO at her self and bowed!!! *LOL*
She was the entertainment of the hour! One of the other little girls sat down besides me and said "she is sooo cute"! Where do they get everything from!?

A little side story of funny things that's been said - Yesterday, Freya did something she shouldn't and I told her off, she then sat down with her arms crossed over her chest and said "Mamma, I don't know!" I answered "what don't you know?" She "If I like you anymore!" Me "Ah, don't say that then I'll get sad" She stands up comes over to me and put her hand on my shoulder "Ah, Mamma, don't worry I'll find you a new home"!!!!!!!!!
Anyway... thought I'll post some pictures for a change so here's some from Oman

First out - Kian trying on Freya's sunglasses... no comments!

Freya trying out her snorkeling kit...
This is the view from our roof topWhilst my brother was here we did some sightseeing...

A typical view
Here we are in one the many great wadis, this is the entrance and you trek for about an hour up in the wadi where you finally jump in a pool and then swim and walk for another 15 min to come to a rock wall with a "key hole", depending on how high the water level is you either swim under or squeeze through it into a cave with a waterfall.... GORGEOUS!

Note 2 small figures on the edge of the cliff... me and my brothers girlfriend!
Trekking ... midday,+ 40 degrees C....
The pools
Me in action
A beach with a stranded turtle
Another beach
a local
The zink hole... a natural phenomena with tunnels up into the mountains and the sea. The water is brackish and stunning. Stopped for a swim
Sunrise in Oman
Beautiful country isn't it!?
Think this has to do for this time... will be back soon!

Have a great day!
