Today, I`m leaving you with a non regular outfit post, without any recap of 2012! It was a great year with lots of memories to be kept. Days with my family, boyfriend, friends and puppies, graduation of my sister, birth of several babies from my closest friends, great parties, photoshoots, travels, new camera and many, many other things. At the bottom line, it was a good year with lots of laugh, happiness and joy!
For a NY`s Eve I`m not having plans at all, it will be a PJ night with "Love actually" as a movie tradition, or I will ended up in another city!
If you planned something, I`m wishing you to have fun!

See ya next year!

We are getting closer to the NY`s eve, and I`m only having a one thing in my mind, I will be one year older and my wrinkles will grow! In the name of that, I decided to put my favorite sunglasses and forget the whole thing. ;)
Nude coat, boots and hat matched with gray t-shirt and washed up jeans, boring or not? What do you think?

2012 Highlights

As I have been looking back at everything I have crafted in 2012, it's amazing how one can forget how much can happen in a span of just 365 days. I am amazed by how much the kids have changed in just a year's time. 
I have been blessed beyond measure this year. 
I want to thank you all for following along on my little journey. I appreciate all the kind words and encouragement you give me. It's nice to know that people like what I do:o)

So I thought I would share my 12 favorite crafts from this year. 
It was hard to choose, but I was able to narrow them down:o)

My first pick would be the dresser re-vamp I did for E. I was quite proud of this because it was the first piece of big furniture that I had worked on completely by myself. 
The hubs was quite impressed:o)

I loved our family movie nights that we had this year. They started to spread out when school started, but the kids seemed to have so much fun with them:o) 
They really had a ball with the Drive-In Movie Night.

The birthdays were a total blast this year. I always enjoy putting the kids parties together, and this year's themes were so much fun to work on.
S.R. made a sweet little Dorthy in her Wizard of Oz party.
My, how this little one has changed! 

E's party was so much fun as well. I didn't dive into it like I normally do, only because I am totally not a Star Wars fan, but thankfully there were so many awesome ideas on the internet.  
Love these sweet faces!!

I did a lot more sewing this year than I have in years past, and I love that my kids get excited about the things I make them. It hasn't always been that way unfortunately. I have finally figured out what they actually like, so that there isn't any disappointments on either end:o)
Here are a few of my favorites for S.R 


This dress is my absolute favorite:o) The flower girl dress. She looked like a little princess! 
We were stopped by so many people in church and at the grocery store a few weeks later saying how beautiful her dress was...I might have been a little proud;o)

Here are my sewn favorites for E.
 This little ottoman was super simple to put together, and E absolutely loves it. He lugs it around all over the place to sit on it. Definitely a score for his mommy!

This little vest and bow tie were absolutely 
adorable on him as well:o)
              
My biggest project of the year wasn't even in my own house. A very dear friend asked me to completely over haul her house and give it an updated look. I won't lie and say I loved every minute of it. It was exhausting, and with only one good hand during the process, there were times when I wanted to throw in the towel. But it turned out great and she loved it so much that she did the HGTV cry..you can't get a better response than that:o)
The before and afters are really something.

And the last of my favorites for 2012 would definitely have to be the "Famerican" Girl doll bed and bedding.
I wish you all could have seen how sweet S.R. was on Christmas morning when she saw the bed. I asked her if she new who made the bed. She said Santa..I told her that her Daddy had made it. She said,
 "Wow! He did a really good job." 
Such a sweet heart!

So those are my favorites for this year. I've got some big projects lined up for this next year and I can't wait to get started on them...just don't tell the hubs;o) 
Have a great New Year. I'll be back here next week to share with you all a new dress for S.R. and a Tooth Fairy Monster I made for E(it's ugly and he loves it:o))

Well, I officially became a copycat! When i saw this great post from a lovely Jules I felt instant love for it! Immediately knew that I will wear something similar, so i took her recipe for the upper body, but instead of denim i choose black skinny jeans for those winter wrapped sausages, I meant legs. ;)
 Do you have some plans for the upcoming weekend? I had some shopping in my mind! ;)

Okay, i have just enough time to publish this post without writing any hilarious sentences for you. Sorry for that. I was wearing one of my favorite jeans for AW/2012/13 . Sounds pretty cool when you type it like that, but its from Bershka baby! Who cares about big brands? It only matters that you like, feel cozy and be you! As long as you follow these simple rules you will be princess in your own universe I promise! Just look at me! I rock the world everyday in my head! ;) As a cherry on top, i put this beanie from my elementary school! Do you have any items from that period? I`m a hoarder, so i needed to do that! ;)
Well, enough of this text without any sense ..
Tell me, do you like the outfit?

Kako se približavamo kraju godine, sumiramo sve kroz šta smo prošli, sagledavamo ono što imamo i još jednom izražavamo zahvalnost na tome. Shvatamo da je za sreću ipak potrebno samo malo i da još uvek postoje osobe koje žele da ovaj svet bude lepše mesto. Iz tog razloga, sa vama danas želim da podelim nešto što apsolutno nema veze sa modom, niti sa blogovima, ali ima veze sa velikim srcem. Srcem svih onih koji pokušavaju da nešto promene i nečemu doprinesu. Oduvek sam bila od onih koji smatraju da se sa humanošću ne treba hvaliti, i dalje stojim iza toga, ali je ponekad potrebno i otvoreno pričati o tome kako bi okolina postala svesna i sama se priključila.
Zbog toga, svoje online mesto po prvi put koristim u te svrhe u nadi da će bar nečemu doprineti.
Verujem da je većina vas čula za akciju "Osmeh na dar" , za one koji to nisu, Ovde mogu pročitati nešto više, a sve što je potrebno da uradite jeste da se uputite (ukoliko budete u Beogradu) u klub Re:publika, 27.12. (od 21:00) ,platite ulaz 250dinara ili ponesete paketić sa sobom. Prilično jednostavno zar ne? :)



Druga stvar koju sam želela da podelim sa vama je još jedna mlada organizacija koja za sobom ima već uspešno sprovedenu akciju a tiče se prikupljanja pomoći za decu iz Prihvatilišta na Voždovcu. Ono što je važno napomenuti, jeste da je ovo tek početak, da postoji puno ideja, a da ste za njihovu realizaciju potrebni isključivo vi. Ne odnosi se samo na Beograd, već može i trebalo bi biti lokalnog karaktera te se iskreno nadam da ćete se i ovome drage volje priključiti! Sve potrebne informacije možete naći na njihovoj Facebook stranici "Dobro drvo" Ovde, dok je sajt u izradi. O trenutnoj akciji, možete pročitati Ovde. Iz skoro pa šale jednog četvrtka, jedne mlade osobe, nastalo je nešto što zaista ima potencijal, a sve što je potrebno je naša dobra volja. Takođe jednostavno? :)

18" Doll Bed, Quilt, Pillow and a Mattress Tutorial

Are you guys ready for Christmas yet? Do you have all of your gifts bought, wrapped and tucked neatly under the tree? We are done for the most part. I think I am going to make one more thing for E and then we will be done. 
Today's post is about what we(the hubs and I) made for S.R.
She has asked for an American Girl Doll for Christmas this year. She is 4 years old...she ain't gettin' an American Girl Doll. However, she is getting a "Famerican" Girl Doll...(Faux-American). Ole Santy Claus is bringing her the doll from Target that looks just like the real deal, and it's 1/3 the cost.
So, I came across a really cool building plan for a doll bed on Ana White's Blog. It is perfect!
I knew the hubs could make it, and so he did:o) 
I decided that I needed to make some really cute bedding to go along with it. 
This Famerican Girl will be resting in style:o)
(I got a little impatient, and decided to take pictures before the hubs could get it stained..pics of the final product will come after X-mas)
This is my very first quilt to actually quilt myself. I found an easy tutorial at Mommy by day, Crafter by night. I was able to make this little quilt in about an hour and a half. The fabrics were from a fat quarter bundle purchased from the Hob.
 The pillow was an absolute must as well:o)
 Here is the under-side of the quilt.
When I laid the quilt and pillow across the bed, the quilt wouldn't lay right. The spindles were in the way, and it just looked like it needed an extra something, so that's when I realized this bed needed a mattress.
This is sort of a tutorial, but not really a step-by-step because I was in a rush to get this done before S.R. got home from school yesterday:o)
I started with two fabrics, you could use the same fabric, but this was leftovers from the fat quarter pack, so I used what I had.
I stitched them together to form what looked like a pillow. I realized I didn't have enough to cover the base of the bed, so I had to add a strip across the top to lengthen it. Once it was re-stitched, I laid it across the bottom of the bed to make sure it fit.
I then stuffed it with poly-fil, and closed the end up by hand-stitching. I usually avoid any hand-stitching at all cost because I am too impatient. However, I really wanted this to look nice, so I bit the bullet, and used my little needle and thread. 
To prevent the mattress from looking like a big pillow shoved into the bed, I tufted it. I had a fabric button covering kit(is that what they're called??), and I used the purple polka dot fabric to cover the buttons. This task was a little more labor intensive. I used a long needle, and lots of patience. At one point, I really thought I was going to need a Band-Aid as well...OUCH! 
This is the back-side of the mattress. Yes, I realize that there are two sets of buttons...why, you ask? Because this was a last minute project, and I didn't have time to go buy matching buttons:o) And, yes, it's staying that way.
So it's complete, and I am thrilled with the results. 
 Perfect for her Famerican Girl Doll!!
