How are you doing?

I've been feeling a little better now :), I got some nice rest last night I went to bed early to catch up on my beauty rest lol

Today is Feb 13 - Scarlett's Birthday!!! ^_^ She's 10 years old now, time pass so fast , I can't believe she's ten already, soon a teenager :( I love my baby so very much that I wish she would stay like she's today, but then again she's my best friend and I would love to hang out with her in coffee shops and other places were she can't go right now lol, that's the cool thing about being a young mother, I'm 26 and after I loose my baby I will gain a friend .. Cool!

I also wanted to talk about my endless obsession with pretty containers lol, Yes I ♥ them, I like to collect them and see them all over the studio, I like boxes, tin cans, buckets,crates,metal and plastic tubs, wooden and paper trinket boxes are the best ^_^

image


Here is a sample of my collection, my most recent addition are the - Decole anticca - mushroom tin canisters, these are great, I fill the red one with metal brads, beads and a needle case and the other one with bias tape,they are so pretty and useful :)

Scarlett and I are crazy for mushrooms, each time we go shopping, we find ourselves is a quest to find pretty mushrooms ^_^, It is hard but we had find little items.

image


We also find these heart buckets, I wanted to fill them with candy and send them to my friends but I run out of time :(, so I will save them for next year, I have this one on the high shelf of my desk at home with yummy candy.

And finally this is a peek of the embroidery project I am currently working on :), I had this image in my mind and I had to draw it, I would like to work more on it to make a pattern and use it as background for my new site.

I'll show you more of my embroidery later :), I'm off to wrap presents :), I am not going to tell what because she might be reading my blog and I really want to surprise her, she's a sneaky girls and she always finds out one way or another, so I am taking security measures lol

I hope you have a great day
See ya tomorrow!

Mushrooms! Those little Decole canisters are adorable. They'd look nice in the kitchen too. :)

Ooooo Happy Birthday Scarlett!!

I didn't realise how young you were! You're only 3 years older than me lol It's going to be so awesome for you when she's a bit older...but then again I hope she doesn't turn into a handful! You know what teens can be like...:P

She was super happy to read all your Happy Birthdays :)

lol I fell kinda old but I know that's just because Scarlett is 10 and so big lol Willy is 1 year younger than me and most people think Scarlett is our little sister lol

ohh I know what you mean, I was pretty rebellious when I was a teenager X_X, the good thing is that we talk about everything and we tell each other everything even the bad things lol
so she know she can count with me if she gets in to trouble.

Have a super day !
