my weekend.

was well spent. i painted this for our next workshop in a box's backdrop and picked out the winners for inspirasi goodie bag book!
sorry for the late announcement, my internet connection didn't seem to be on my side lately. anyways, the winners are... (drum roll please!) dilla maulina and little chiq - picked randomly by yours truly. i will wait two days for them to claim the prize, otherwise am picking another winner. and for those of you who don't win, there'll be guilty giveaway coming soon :)

a room for the kids.

a lot has changed with yuara's room now that he has to share with his little sister. uhm not like he sleeps in it lately, but a mother can wish no? yuara used to sleep alone when he was two-ish but then he went to school and caught flu most of the time and i was too lazy to go back and forth from the master bedroom to check up on him so he was brought to our bed. big mistake i tell ya! imagine how it is with the baby around, her crib is right next to our bed so it's pretty crammed everynight. but i won't have it in any other way - at least not for now! when kutri is big enough to sleep alone, i will send her and yuara to their room. but that will probably take a year from today :)  

our only problem was we did have the smallest dresser. but instead of buying new furniture, i used my existing white rack for occasional bazaar. i cleared out my stuff and covered it with handmade cover up in circus theme. now that's what you call decorating on a budget!

we also decorated a dessert table for inspirations, all of our circus related kids' toys were there! it was hilarious watching yuara went to the table and collected his. overall, it was a super fun event - and we couldn't have done it without our sponsors: babalisme, ideku handmade, liburan anak, and gudily. hope to see you at our next …
