Seashells Art

Since kids have a few things to do in this weather I try my best to make time at home more fun. So I remembered we collected a few seashells from the chalet, I brought some water color paint and brushes and started painting with my daughter. Here are some photos:

After painting the shells we painted gardens on watercolor papers. After waiting for the paint to dry, we glued the seashells on the painting to make tulips and roses. After glue is dry and before framing I sprayed the painting with Krylon matte finish spray which I got from True Value.

I also had extra frames, I framed each one and will definitely find a place to put them. You should try making different arts with seashells with your kids. Lots of fun.

Annie Walker and Christian Louboutin

I recently started watching Covert Affairs which is about a young CIA agent Annie Walker (starring Piper Perabo). I really like the show it reminds me of Jennifer Garner's Alias. Anyway, so I reached season 3 episode 4 and I think I like the british guy Simon Fischer, there's this charm about him. I hope he turns out to be a good guy and Annie will end up with him.

Piper Perabo as Annie Walker, Richard Coyle as Simon Fischer

COVERT AFFAIRS Season 3 Episode 1 Hang On To Yourself.

Agent Annie Walker is also known for her love for Christian Louboutin Heels. I'll leave you with some photos

For the Love of Pastels

DIY Spice Labels

Since my cook had to leave for two months, I went back to the kitchen which I love but barely had time to cook or bake something, and reorganized everything including the spices which we had them in different jars and boxes. So I went and got those mini jars (in photo) from IKEA and printed those labels on sticker paper.

Alice in Wonderland Party Ideas

One thing you should know by now is that I love crafts and hand made things. So when my 3 year-old daughter chose "Alice in Wonderland" as her Birthday theme, I had so many idea for one obvious reason which is: It was my favourite Disney cartoon when I was a child. So I enjoyed making each and every piece in the decoration. Here are photos of my daughter's 3rd birthday party back in January.

I hope you like it.
Printable Labels were purchased from here.
Party inspired by HWTM.
The rest of the decoration were handmade.
