I Heart Etsy - Sketch Book

I've been browsing Etsy in search of a sketch book. I like to have a book with me at all times where I can doodle and sketch random ideas that come to at the most diverse times. Finally I made my purchase and I got this super cute journal/sketch book in pink and green. I love all the details, the tie, the tiny beads on the spine, the colors and the size. I can't wait to get it!

In my search I found many good choices in different sizes and materials. Here are a few of the ones I like.

DIY - Iron-on Transfer Napkins

This is a simple DIY project I did to dress my Thanksgiving table. I got the inspiration and steps from the Design Sponge Blog. All you need is a printer, a selection of pictures or drawings, iron-on transfer sheets, and iron and plain napkins.

I chose pictures of pies to go with the Thanksgiving theme, a different picture for each napkin. I got the napkins at my local IKEA store. Once printed, I cut each one of the images.

Following the directions on the iron-on transfer sheets box, I placed the pictures on the napkins. Here are the six different napkins I did.

A close up detail of one of the finished napkins.

After a few simple steps the project is done and the table ready to set.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Drawing made by my daughter.

I love the Thanksgiving menu! I grew up in a country that doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving. It wasn't until I came to the USA being an adult already, that I tried for the first time the typical Thanksgiving meal and boy I loved it! I like every single side dish, every dessert, and of course the bird. Even though I like the whole meal, I came up with a short list of favorites:

Favorite Turkey Recipe: Good Eats Roast Turkey
Favorite Side Dish: Sweet Potato Casserole
Favorite Dessert: Warm Pecan Pie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

A Vampire for Hallooween

Halloween is around the corner! My daughter wants to be a Vampire Girl and my son doesn't really care too much about it, probably because he's older. She has specific instructions about her costume: a white face, fake pointy teeth and a black dress. No cape, because the cape, she says, in only for boys. That should be easy enough to pull.
