Well, this is what I have been doing recently…more of the gingham crochet clips of course which have been a real hit, and some other 50’s inspired items. Mujer is going to the Rockerbilly festival in Pineda de Mar next week and asked for for some things she could take along. So here we have some vintage material used to make kiddies headscarves(after a big battle with my sewing machine), some new alice bands and some new gingham clip and hairband combo’s. I’m pretty pleased with how everything turned out, let’s hope that she manages to sell them!

La semana que viene hay una feria de Rockerbilly en Pineda de Mar, aqui hay unas cosas que he hecho para la tienda Mujer quien va estar alli unos 4 dias…un poco de vichy alquien?!

OMG!!! I have to make these for Maia’s 4th birthday party coming up soon….how cool do they look…mmm yum!!!!

And the best thing is that it is that they are soooo incredibly easy to make which is always helpful, although not sure how long they’ll last in the Mediterranean sun..no doubt they’ll get eaten before they have the chance to melt!

Hay que mirar estas cucharaditas de chocolate para fiestas, son la cosa mas mona y dulce, naturalmente!! Voy hacerlas para la  fiesta de cumpleaños de mi hija en breve!

blueboard paint! March 14, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — maitas @ 8:37 pm

I’ve just finished painting the long awaited other side of my daughter’s bedroom, poor thing. I decided to use coloured blackboard paint for half of it and just plain white above. It needs another coat(gotta buy some more) but it’s nice and bright. I think I’ll add some coordinating circles to make with the other side too. I thought this image looked rather pleasing..well to my eye at least! I love the new print I got the other day from Keboniko by Cosas Minimas.

Well, this is Barcelona in March if you can believe it, because we couldn’t! Especially as we had had temperatures of 18 degrees c  here last week!

If anyone has left a message and not had a reply or it has not come up on my blog then please send it to me again!!! I have just realised that there is an automatic spam setting and many messages have been whipped away without me seeing them.

Thanks

I did this little clip the other day as an extra treat for an order. I think it’s sooo cute I might just do some more! Better get my mother in law onto the crochet flowers right away!

Check out this blog. I found it recently and think it’s great. The owner also has a big people’s version too! http://bloesem.blogs.com/ I am fascinated by other peoples houses and all handmade so naturally I was drawn to this! Apart from interior design there are also some great craft ideas for children, receipes etc.
