All good things come to an end..

In exactly one week, at this very hour, I'll be about to leave the office after my first day of work after a year of mat leave! I'm excited...and anxious at the same time! I think there are no exact words to describe how it feels (but I'm sure all of you moms know what I'm talking about!)

A year away from work...that's quite a long time! But this year must have been one of the most fulfilling I have ever experienced! I have learned a whole new job, the job of being a mom! It truly has been exciting & rewarding!

4 business days left...

Talk to you soon!

All about owls!

Everybody who knows me knows that I have a thing for owls!
It all started about a year & a half ago, when we bought the crib set for baby's nursery. At that time, we didn't know if we were having a boy or a girl (and I would have wanted to keep it a surprise but my boyfriend just couldn't bear it!) but we knew that we wanted a gender neutral nursery (we're really not into the pink or blue scheme!)

When we were shopping for the crib, we literally fell in love with this one
Isn't it cute? Love the herringbone bed bumper!

There it was, we had found the nursery theme! The word started spreading, next thing you know, almost all the baby shower gifts we received had something to do with owls!

I did a lot of Internet research for inspiration (if only I would have had a Pinterest account then!!! Don't even know if it existed?...) and found so many cute items out there! Most of all on Etsy, that's for sure!
Here are some of the products & artists I discovered through my big quest for owls!

 Cori Dantini

She makes such wonderful art! I just love it...I first fell in love with her owls, but she does more than that! Check out her Etsy shop, you will be blown away!

Kimberly Scola from Chez Sucre Chez

I've already introduced you to this cute shop in a previous post . You can find Kimberly gorgeous pieces in her Etsy shop

Funky Chicken Design

This is the funky switch plate we bought for baby's nursery. It's just too cute, everybody loves it! Go visit Michelle's Etsy shop and you too will find amazing stuff for your little nest! ( pun intended here!)

Hope you will enjoy these finds!
Planning to share some more with you in the future!

PS: Needed to share this with you guys...Haven't posted anything in a few days cause baby has been sick...but right now, just picture this...I'm writing these lines as she's taking a nap on my chest, in her baby wrap carrier! Those things are so handy! Just love them...Maybe I'll chat about that another day!

Have a good one everybody!

Only 2 1/2 weeks left! HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!


So many things to do, so little time! What did I tell you guys about...hum...2-3 weeks ago!

"I'd like to call this the "5 weeks challenge", but I'm just afraid that I'll get disappointed if I don't get through the list! You know what I mean!"


Guess what?...time is flying by and even tough I've checked some things off my's still quite long!
Besides from the little one being sick, I guess my biggest "challenge" has been Pinterest...or staying off Pinterest should I say! This thing is so freakin' addictive!!!

Anyway, here's what I've been working on lately (in between diaper changes, laundry & dirty dishes!)

Some custom orders for friends

Also did a little photo session with my best friend and her baby girl!

I bought the supplies I needed to prepare the party decorations for baby's 1st bday...This is only the start, but I'm so pleased with my color scheme choice...and really happy with the way the invitations came out! Love it!

Ok so what's next... there's a quilt I'd like to finish, some painting that needs to be done in the house...also wanted to start working on the slipcovers for our couch (just to give you an idea...I've had this project since we moved in our house...about 2 years ago!!!! But before cutting all the pieces, I need to preshrink my 11-12 yards of fabric...I'm planning a trip to the laundromat very soon!) Also really need to add some listings to my Etsy shop...and prepare all the DIY decorations for my sweetie's bday!

Can I please get more than 24 hours in a day?!?!
Good luck to me!
I'll keep you posted!

Take care!
