Hello lovelies! You probably understand how thrilled i am to start this new year of blogging with a gorgeous new DIY project. Oh my has Meta from One More Mushroom outdone herself this week.... I absolutely LOVE her family portrait of handmade wooden dolls.
Looking at mummy's tummy in the pictures I am wondering if Meta is sharing a little secret with us??
Well we have to ask her ... but for now if you would like to see how Meta and her kids made this wooden doll family head over to the BKids' Craft page right here and see the full tutorial ... have fun!

Are you overwhelmed with Christmas crafts? We hope not ... here's one Sufiya, I and the boys made last week. A simple but most important fun thing to do and we all love the result.
White Christmas ornaments made out of air dry clay and cookie cutters from Ikea. Both easy things to find.
Here's a little tip or two.
* Roll out the clay thinly. Our's were at least 5mm wide.
*Cookie cutters are sharp, do make sure your kids are not pressing their fingers onto the sharp side.
*During the process of drying the clay, flip the ornament onto its other side to avoid the bottom being too flat. We let them completely air dry for a full day.
*Sand paper edges to have that smooth finish. Simple right?
They are quick and easy, you still have time to add these to your tree.

A simple idea to add to your party packs for guest on birthdays or even for this Christmas. I do love Véronique from Pichouline's idea of a balloon shaped brooch. Lovely black and white with a pop of neon yellow is definitely in trend now but don't stop there. Experiement with different shape, sizes and colors with this tutorial. Maybe a red balloon for this Christmas season?
