– Scissors

Just cut the triangles in the cardboard, I made 8 (4 of each). Then tape them to the thread at equal distance, fix to the wall with masking tape, and you’re done!

Il vous suffit de découper des triangles de même taille dans les feuilles cartonnées, j’en ai fait 8 ($ dans chaque feuille). Puis les scotccher sur votre fil á égale distance, utiliser la washi tape pour fixer au mur, et voilà!

It’s called Kids – The Gratitude Jar

image

🇺🇸

I wanted to do this for a long time….

This is a great idea for kids but for us adults too :)

I just printed a great quote I liked from pinterest and taped it on a jar. I placed it in a visible spot in the hallway at home so we remember to do this almost everyday, I put little bits of paper next to it, and a pen.

Everyday (Not EVERYday, we don’t want this to become a chore) we write down something good that happened. it can be the slightest thing that made us smile. It helps to put things in perspective, value things we take for granted in our everyday life and be grateful for all the things we have, big or small.

This is a great exercise that makes you be more positive, grateful and it will be fun to open the jar at the end of the year and read all the things that made us happy throughout the year!

Love,

B.

Je voulais faire ça depuis quelques temps déjà. 

Cela fonctionne très bien pour les enfants, mais aussi pour les adultes :)

J’ai imprimé une phrase qui me plait beaucoup, je l’ai trouvée sur pinterest (“Toutes les journées ne sont pas bonnes, mais il y a du bon dans tous les journées”), je l’ai scotchée sur un bocal que j’ai mis dans l’entrée avec du papier et un crayon á côté.

Tous les jours (Ou presque, il ne faut pas que ça devienne une corvée) nous écrivons une bonne chose qui nous est arrivée dans la journée. Ça peut être n’importe quelle petite chose qui nous ai fait sourire. Cela aide á voir les choses de façon différente et valoriser les choses que l’on considère comme acquises dans notre vie de tous les jours.

C’est un très bon exercice, qui permet d’être plus positif et de voir les choses du bon côté.

Á la fin de l’année nous ouvrirons le bocal pour relire toutes les bones choses qui nous sont arrivées dans l’année!

Love,

B.

Já queria fazer isto á muito tempo.

É uma boa ideia para as crianças mas para nós também :)

Imprimi uma frase gira que pesquisei no Pinterest (” Nem todos os dias são bons mas há algo de bom em todos os dias”), colei-a num frasco e coloquei-o na entrada com pequenos papéis e uma caneta ao lado.

Todos os dias (Ou quase todos, não queremos que isto passe a ser “chato”), escrevemos algo de bom que nos tenha acontecido, pode ser a minima coisa que nos tenho feito sorrir. É uma boa forma de darmos mais valor ao que nos acontece, aquilo que já temos e que ás vezes damos por garantido, enfim, permite-nos refletir e ver as coisas boas que nos acontecem, sejam elas grandes ou pequenas.

É um exercício muito bom e que nos deixa mais positivos.

No final do ano vai ser engraçado abrir o frasco e reler tudo aquilo que nos aconteceu de bom durante o ano!

Love,

B.

IT’S CALLED DIY – Sequin Pillow

image

This is a super cute and easy DIY to make in 10 minutes!

The first one I make for my Baby’s nursery :)

I used the word Baby but you can write whatever you like of course.

There’s a lot of tutorials on the internet for this but really it’s so easy you don’t really need one.

Anyway, this is what I used :

****

Uma ideia gírissima e super simples para realizar em 10 minutos!

O meu primeiro projecto DIY para o quartinho do meu Bébé :)

Fiz com a palavra Baby mas pode dizer o que quiserem e ser usado em qualquer canto da casa.

Há um montão de tutoriais pela internet mas este projecto é tão fácil qua não é preciso grande ajuda visual.

No entanto, aqui está o material que usei :

image

– A pillow

Mine is a white one from Ikea but you can use whatever pillow you like

– Sequin ribbon

Here again I chose silver but there’s a ton of options out there!

– Hot Glue Gun

I tried first with Mod Podge but quickly found the hot glue is way easier because it dries faster

****

-Uma almofada

Escolhi uma branca básica do Ikea mas pode se fazer com a almofada que quiserem obviamente

– Fita de lantejoulas

Aqui também, eu usei prateado mas há por ai milhares de opções

– Pistola de cola quente

Antes de usar a cola quente, experimentei com cola branca e também dá, mas a cola quente seca muito mais rápido e torna tudo mais fácil

image

The tutorial is easy, you simply have to write down the word of your choice. (I wrote mine directly but you can choose a stencil on the internet and print it to make it easier.) Then you apply the hot glue over the writing and start applying the sequin as you go.

See? Easy!

Love,

B.

****

Os paços a seguir são muito simples, basta escrever a palavra escolhida na almofada. (Escrevi a minha directamente, mas também podem imprimir um stencil da internet com a palavra que quiserem para se guiarem) Depois é só aplicar a cola quente por cima da palavra e ir aplicando as lantejoulas.

Eu não disse? Fácil!

Love,

B.

IT’S CALLED DIY – Paper Pom Poms

I just loooove these pom poms! and they’re so easy to make :)

I followed Martha Stewart’s tutorial HERE, but there are a lot of them on the web.

I made these to go over a buffet table for a party I’m planning here at home, but they’re cute pretty much everywhere!

You can make them whatever size or colour you want….

Here I just hung them in my craft room, but I’ll show you the pics after the party :)

Love,

IT’S CALLED DIY – Washi Tape Moleskine

I had bought this white Moleskine on my last trip to London. it was actually a limited edition from Selfridges.

I didn’t know what to use it for, until I got engaged in December and decided to use it as my Wedding Planner. After a week of carrying it all the time in my bag, it obviously started to turn “not-so-white”, grey even :-/

I took the opportunity to make a DIY of it!

I had this cute washi tape on hand, so in a matter of minutes my Moleskine was as sweet as new!

Try it out!

Love,

It’s called DIY – Glitter phone charger

tumblr_mcervf5b2r1qc09teo11_r1_1280

Ok, I admit… I’m addicted to Glitter!

But I saw this DIY somewhere on the internet and couldn’t resist to spruce up my charger a bit. Aren’t those white chargers just soooo boring?! :p

This one is easy easy!

You’ll need :

– A charger (!)

– Some Tacky glue, Mod podge or any other white glue…

– Glitter in whatever colour you like

– Top coat Polish

Basically you just cover the charger with glue. I used a swab but you can use a little sponge or a painting brush. Make sure to miss no spot.

Pour the Glitter all over the charger.

Let it dry.

Apply the top coat once or twice. This step is to make sure you don’t get your hands (and everything you touch!) all “Glittered” every time you use your charger.

Let it dry.

And that’s it! Easy right? and you have a super cute charger <3
