Furoshiki is one of the ways you can incorporate zero waste thinking this festive season. You will save money as there is no need to buy wrapping paper, tape, bows or ribbons that contain plastic.

Easy Tie-Dye Tutorial: Reinvent Spotted Clothes

CATEGORY: DIY, KIDS & FAMILY

I always admire parents whose kids look impeccably clean. I don’t know how they do it. When I feel like desperate after I changed Chloe-Sofia for the third time, I remember what my mom likes to say: “Happy kids are dirty.” It is a sign that they are playing, enjoying nature and having fun. Who cares if the pants got wet and muddy? Let me just say that I am learning to relax and let Chloe-Sofia be herself. 

Some time ago I began to put aside her clothes with the most persistent stains. I tried all the tricks you can think of (bleach, cold water, vinegar) but as nothing worked, I decided to approach it differently. Instead of trying to fight it, I used it to my advantage. I got several packets of fabric dye and dusted off long lost my tie-dye knowledge.

DIY Tutu Skirt For You and Your Daughter

CATEGORY: DIY, FASHION

I used to take ballet classes when I was small and what I liked about them the most was my tutu skirt. It made me feel like a ballerina. And when I saw this skirt online, I knew I had to try to make it myself. It was fun, especially because I could not wait to see Chloe-Sofia’s reaction. At first, she did not want to wear it. But then I made one for myself and she changed her mind. As one of my friends like to say, she is in her monkey see, monkey do stage. This tutorial is simple and takes maximum 45 minutes.

Chloe-Sofia is 19 months old so instead of decorating our Christmas tree with decorations that she can break (and hurt herself), I decided to make them myself.

I little DIY never hurt nobody, right? I found a lot of inspiration on Pinterest and YouTube so if you want to look for more ideas, check these channels out.
