Denim Bling!

I have decided that plain denim is just so boring and predictable. Everyone is wearing uber-expensive jeans feeling they are unique by buying an elite pair of jeans. Well, I have had enough with it and have started embellishing my denim to reflect my personal style. Now, I will truly have a pair of unique jeans - taste and style are things that money cannot buy.

Sew Outdoors!

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I decided to sew outdoors on our new deck. I had to sew ten flannel playclothes for Malena's Waldorf nursery school. Today, I washed, ironed and rolled them. They look so soft and inviting for play! Lucky kids!

Doesn't the deck look awesome? Diego designed and built the deck all by himself! It took him one weekend and a few weeknights after work to complete it. I applied the water sealant on it. This weekend, Diego started building the back deck - by himself! We also have a new wooden hot tub to install that we ordered from, Sea Otter Wooden Tubs in Alaska. We didn't want to be soaking in a big tupperware container filled with hot water, so we opted for the safer wood option. The people at Sea Otter were extremely helpful with choosing our tub and explaining the benefits of a cedar tub. The tub smells wonderful! I can't wait to get in it once it is built. Ohhh... it has jets too!

Malena's Third Birthday

Well, Malena is officially three years old! I can't believe that my little baby was born three years ago. And to top it off, she begins nursery school on her own this Thursday! When did she become so grown up?

We threw a birthday party for her at our house this weekend. We mainly invited family with a few friends from our local Waldorf school.

Of course, I made the cake. I love working with fondant. It is so simple to create such an impressive cake.
