Seriously Good Lasagna

Cooking never comes naturally for me. It is more like a survival skill that I need to have 🙂 Some days I feel like doing it, other days I just feel like making crafts instead. So I always try to find something easy and fast, but also delicious. I’m going to share our recent favourite lasagna recipe, along with the secret sauce (my daughter pointed out that it’s more like she and I, because the boys in our family are not fans of pasta). This pasta is really good if you don’tView full post »

Hi everyone! Just want to share our latest mother-daughter project.. adopt-an-owl 🙂 Had so much fun putting these together for her school gala. I made the owl and she made the bio sheet and put the jar together. This one is a girl, and she’s the sweetest owl to adopt! And here is the Christmas owl. This one is a boy and he loves Christmas – loves to dress up as a reindeer. It was so much fun doing this project with my girl. Time well spent 🙂View full post »

Our Family Yearbooks | Auckland Family Photographer

When I was little, my dad used to take lots of photos. Every time he finished a roll of film, he would take it to the local print shop and get it developed.

You must check Origrami out! I ordered the Rangefinder series and I just loved how easy it was to order. Seriously, how cute is this tin? You can even choose the colour and the design to go on the back of the prints. What’s your favourite printer now?View full post »

DIY Christmas Ornaments / Gift Tags

As you’ve probably seen, I pinned lots of Christmas crafts tutorials on my PINTEREST. One tutorial that I really wanted to make was the salt dough ornaments.  I am not very good with oven though, and since I’d like to make these with my kids, I chose to use DAS air-dry modelling clay instead. This is our main Christmas project this year and we had so much fun making them. So I thought I’d share it with you all : ) You will need : modelling clay, stamps, cookie cutter, sand paper, drinkingView full post »
