Zebra Print and Hot Pink Christmas Wreath

Animal prints are reappearing guest stars on fashion runways but unless you're a Samantha Jones , it's almost impossible to wear a zebra print dress and pull it off!

So if you still want to make that ultimate fashion statement , go for a clutch , a pair of shoes or a DIY wreath. Yes, you read it right, Christmas can be fun!

Hope you like this project , had to leave my comfort zone but I loved it :)

DIY : Christmas Gift Tags

This Christmas, i'm campaigning against impersonal/mass produced sticker gift tags . Just say NO to the friendly store assistant who offers you one.

It's all in the paper you choose . Go for matte , vintage and recycled paper for a warm holiday effect and try to avoid using all that glitters and shines.

Happy Holidays!

Stick some paper to the other side to cover the back stitching and sign off the tag

DIY : Paper Tree Figurines

When I came across these cute paper trees by fellow blogger Kristina , it was love at first site and immediately took to my work station to make some for myself!

This project in particular reminded me of crafting at school, it was so easy and super fun

Cut the sheets into perfect circles then fold into cones

Then cut the design paper into leaf shapes and start sticking

DIY : White Christmas Decoration

It's that time of the year! Every DIY blogger's happy place is the heart warming Christmas season.

Where do i start? With almost 20 ideas on paper and another 50 in my head , i can only do so much in my tiny city apartment so i took it to fate and made a blind selection only to see that i chose my favorite ideas!   That's the magic of Christmas.

For my first post  : wonderland ornaments , warm lights and bows. 

Hope you like them :)

There's so much more to come so keep visiting my blog

DIY : Cable Organizer

If you're anything like the everyday person, you own at least one camera , smart phone, laptop etc which also means that you have no less than five messy wires and cords lying around your house , in your car's glove box and drawers. I saw a very cool ribbon organizer at a bookshop in Beirut and thought it was a brilliant idea to make my own.

Instead of ribbon, i used elastic band and added color with colorful beads.
