Diapositiva1Hello everyone!!
Today I want to guide you through a super easy tutorial to make a DIY belt for your daughter starting from that old scarf you’ve not been using for ages! Ready? It’s fun and quick!

Last year, these days, a beautiful stork came knocking at my door.

It brought me joy, wonder, laughs, tears, a lot of sleepless nights and, most of all, true happiness.

I still can’t believe so many months have already passed, and I want to celebrate my little Minnie’s 1st Birthday giving birth to a project I’ve dreamt about for quite a while now.

This is a special place for me, where all my creativity can be shared with other hyper-active crafty brains belonging to moms who simply think their babies deserve the best!!

Happy Birthday my Sweet Girl, and Good … Read more...
