There is a place in Riga where spring always comes first. I would even say, it never leaves this place. Something is always blooming there any time of the year, as far as I know. Have you already guesed what place am I talking about? No, I’m not speaking of the flowerbed of our neighbour old lady (though, if she had a winter house for her plants there, it would be another correct answer). The place is the Botanical Garden of Riga. I was in some other botanical gardens in other countries and I must say that after comparing it with the others, I am quite proud of ours. Maybe it doesn’t have such a variety of plants, maybe it’s old. But it’s treated with a big care and it’s really neat, beautiful and stylish. It also has some benches, so you can make a picnic there.
I made a decision to change one thing here: I’m going to share my 365’s right after the completion of a week, which happens in the middle of workdays.
I love crafting for my kids. My mother says, I’m indulging them. She says that they don’t appreciate my work enough. I think it’s not valuing that is important, but what my kids feel when they get a handmade gift from me. And I know they feel my love.
Veronica had a desire to bring her Winx doll to the kindergarten, but the doll couldn’t go outside in that cold in her super-light fairy dress. I volunteered to help Veronica and provide her doll warm cosy leggings and a modern top to complete the outfit.
So today I’m going to share here a tutorial how to sew a modern outfit for a fashion doll from scraps (or old baby clothes) without any pattern.
I think I’ve already mentioned it once or twice here: I’m not a religious person. That’s why Easter is and isn’t celebrated in our place simultaneously. Things get even more complicated because our country provides us 4 days of official holidays on Catholic Easter, and we kind of belong to Russian Orthodox Church. I do like the brightness and freshness of the Easter colours, and the traditions of it are too kids-friendly to skip those, but still it’s more like a spring welcome for me than a holiday. And despite the fact that there was no spring yet around to welcome, I took a little break from writing (but not taking pictures) and threw myself into fancying my home and crafting.
