Paper roses: In this tutorial i will help you to make realistic paper roses in a very simple way! This is a cheap solution to make a flower bouquet with your imagination . My idea is to use paper roses to decorate a card for the upcoming Mother’s day . Your mom will for sure appreciate it 🙂
May is the month of the year i prefer the most for several reasons.
There is also a nice coincidence, in several places in the world the 8th of May is usually know as the “Mother’s day” and roses are the best known flowers of this period!
How to make a DIY Stadium “pop up” card, free template.
Let’s talk about…football!
Last saturday i was invited to a friend’s party for his 70th birthday. The party was the perfect opportunity to think a special gift for him.

I’m happy to share with you a diy “Carnival postcard”: a paper postcard that can be used as a mask too.
The key words of this blog post are: Carnival + DIY + postcard + art therapy, such a great mix of ideas!
(ps. This is the second FREE POSTCARD i made, if you missed the first one…have a look to this page.)
The Carnival-postcard-mask was a present for my super friend Irene. The drawing for the postcard was inspired by her and the gorgeous city where she lives: Barcelona. Irene is an enthusiastic architect, i think she’ll enjoy the idea that she can color herself the postcard-mask.
I’m a proud supporter of the power of colors and pencils, drawing help my to be concentrated and has a therapeutic power.
(WIKI … Adult coloring books help with developing fine motor skills and vision, reducing anxiety and creating focus, and relieving stress and anxiety in a manner similar to meditation. Concentrating on coloring may facilitate the replacement of negative thoughts and images with pleasant ones….)
The “Carnival-postcard-mask” has a double use:
Just follow the following instructions, but first download here the FREE TEMPLATE:

I’m in love with La La Land movie, do you know why? Don’t worry i’m not going to spoil.
I’m in love with Ryan Gosling, Los Angeles, Emma Stone’s yellow dress (and short hair..wow) and jazz music!
La la land is not a movie about love and music, is a “state of mind”. It is about everyday life and “explores the joy and pain of pursuing our dreams”. The fact is…what will you choose : your dream or your eternal love?
While i still think about this…let’s go to sleep and dream about Ryan Gosling!
Are you late for your carnival dress idea? Let’s be inspired and do it yourself :
And the winner is….
Finally i have time to show you the “Do it Juicy Christmas table setting”.
I used natural materials and colors :
I love the soft light of candles and the mix of different materials like glass, plants (eucalyptus) and wood.
My table was not too big and i didn’t have too much space to make a centerpiece. So i made three different spots running on a central tape of a natural cotton. Each spot was made of : one white candle, one small glass jar ad some eucalyptus.
And sure there was a present for my guests too! A DIY christmas ball in each plate with guests photos inside.
It was a magic christmas, do you like it?
Here you can find more photos of my project.

Ogni anno nuovo che si rispetti inizia con “la lista delle cose da fare” : progetti, idee, ispirazioni e..viaggi da fare.
Non c’è modo migliore di iniziare una lista se non guardando alle cose che “sono in casa e a quelle che mancano”. Mi guardo indietro e raccolgo quello che ho seminato durante i primi mesi di attività per prepararmi a ripartire.
Grazie a questo blog sono successe tante cose e sono impaziente di vedere quello che mi riserverà il futuro. Intanto però vi voglio mostrare in cosa sono stata tanto impegnata durante lo scorso dicembre.
I used to start every New Year writing down a “To do list” : projects, ideas, plans and…places i would like to visit.
The best way to do it is to check “what is in and what is missing”. I’m looking back to the very beginning of this blog. Is it everything well done? Last 2016 months were great, i had the opportunity to do things by my self and express my ideas.
While i’m writing my new “to do list” i would like to show you some ideas i had for the past Xmas party.
We had the traditional Xmas italian lunch in our house in Rome.

Questa cosa di giocare con la neve finta mi sta sfuggendo di mano…
Anna è la bellissima bimba di quattro mesi di una coppia di amici, dire che è tenerissima è poco!
Ho sfruttato il mio sabato pomeriggio per realizzare una palla di neve da appendere all’albero che spero le ricorderà sempre il suo primo Natale.
Per realizzare la palla come quella della foto dovete prima di tutto: Continue reading “Anna nella neve”
