What is a party without a cake? It's always a challange to make a cake that fits the theme, of course there is lots of inspiration on the internet. I saw some pretty 'ombre' cakes and made my own version with coloured buttercream on the outside of the cake and a chocolate cake because that's her favourite!
Yesterday Sofia turned 12! She's a big girl now! We had a lovely day, we celebrated the party with friends& family, Sofia was spoiled with lovely gifts, we had Indonesian ricetable with jummie Sate my dad prepared and ended the party with a dip & dye dessert table.....

Sofia's birthday party for her friends is tomorrow, they will go climbing in trees here, we saw this somewhere and Sofia really liked it, so it will be an easy party for me tomorrow ;-) I'm in charge of providing drinks & sweet treats, taking pictures and of course do lots of cheering for the girls way up in the trees! For the inviation Sofia made a lovely frestive drawing and I cut it out of black paper ( inspired by the indonesian wayang/shadow dolls) we scannend it and printed on blue thick paper, we put the invitations in Dip & dyed enveloppes with some confetti.
Today there will be lots of baking, sewing, decorating going on here.....

These last few days Sofia and I did quite a lot op party crafting, we made the inviations, dip & dyed a lot.... and made the treats for her school class. What I like about the themed parties is that every theme comes with different colours, materials and techniques, for the dip & dye party we dyed fabric and t-shirts we really enjoyed the fabric colouring and will do that again very soon.

This is Lily Lapin and she is availible for adoption, Lily is a very special rabbit because she has two sweet faces! She was born in the middle of night and I must have been a bit sleepy when I made her. Lily tried to sneek in a package for a shop in London, but I cought her just in time. Now i'm looking for a sweet and loving family to take her in and love her lots! So if you would like to give Lily a warm home please leave a comment on why she would be a perferct addition to your family and 15th of June I will pick a family together with Mila and Sofia where she will go to live. Of course we will pay for her train/airplane ticket so international families are welcome too.

In less than two weeks Sofia will turn 12 years, so it was time to start party planning, as you perhaps know we always start early with party planning but this time we start quite late. So it's quite a challenge to get everything ready in time. For Sofia's birthday party of this year we came up with a combined idea, we really liked the Dip & dye look and think it wil be great to combine it with a Indonesian twist. So I'm thinking, lots of blue, bamboo, wood, rice, excotic flowers and a very nice secret birthday party activity involving trees and adventure and of course jummie Indonesian food, my sweet dad will make his famous Nasi & Sate!

Oh my, I have been away from my blog such a long time. I did not plan to be away but life just took over I guess, the kids had holiday, i had lots of work to do and the lack of sunshine did not help either, I love making pictures with natural light but rainy grey days kept me from making bright and sunny pictures to share on my blog.
In the meantime I have recieved and send some Happy mails for the Happy mail project, I really enjoyed making my mail for Ishtar, I knew she likes neon colours and tea and I combined that with my love for Paris and came up with the ' Teatime in Paris' theme for this happy mail. It's so fun to make these and to work with a special person in mind, it was so much fun to make and even better to hear that Ishtar loved it too!
The happy mail included some lovely smelling tea that I repackaged with Rie Elise Larsen paper that I bought here, I made some enveloppes, some drawings, stickers, Mila helped to make confetti and I included a little camera & some Paris labels.

Spring is slowly coming and we have to start thinking about what to wear this summer, the girls have grown a lot lately so new clothes are a must. A great way to start summer sewing is joining the KCW ( kids clothes week) Sewing clothes for your kids a whole week 1 hour a day! This week is a busy one but yesterday I managed to sew a summer short for Mila, a quick and easy project.
