As some of you may know, living in London for the past two years had it's fair share of hurdles when it came time to celebrate traditional American holidays. Among such was finding pumpkins (in the city) large enough to carve... another something that I don't think I cared too much about previously, but then living across the pond had me so homesick I was in desperate need to carve a few. It turned out to be more hassle than it was worth and I admit, I had some pieces of my pumpkin held together with pins from cutting slightly too deep... oops! So here is my alternative that I am sharing over on the Bubble and Speak blog, DIY: Painted Pumpkins. Go on over and have a peak. Don't matter if you are State side or not as this is certainly a fun Halloween project your littles will enjoy. It's probably a safer option for wee little ones too!
If I'm being honest, Halloween has been one of the main motivators behind me wanting to start back up on here. Searching online for costume ideas, I came across these fantastic images by Kelly Lewis from Kelly Is Nice Photography and man was I jolted with a much need serge of inspiration! How captivating is this little miss in each of her roles?! I also love the idea of modernizing costumes by styling them out of every day wear, that way everything can be used again. I think it also gives these iconic looks a fresh new makeover, don't you? Be sure to check out the rest of Kelly's work as I'm sure it will leave you as breathless as it did me and hopefully inspire a thing or two in you.
Hi everyone! Sorry it's been a good old while since I've last posted... life and changes have happened and settling into L.A. has taken a lot longer than I had anticipated. But I have missed this space dearly... and I've been missing the kid's world like you wouldn't believe. And so I'm back (hopefully more regularly) and excited to once again dive head first into the world that so unexpectedly caught my heart. If you're curious as to what I've been up to in general, you can read about it on my personal blog, Made With Love... feel free to be nosey and have a snoop. Life has been hectic, unpredictable, and surprisingly challenging... but overall life has been good.
Hi everyone! I know it's been a while (a long unexpected while to be exact) but I'm back and hopefully more regularly for your reading pleasures. The last few months have been spent relocating across the pond and just dealing with everything that comes with a move... only more so since ours was transatlantic! I managed (just about) to keep updating my personal blog so you can read all about it here if you like. I now write to you from the sunny west coast that is California and the palm trees say hi.
On another note, if you haven't already heard, today is the last day EVER of Google Reader... sad times, I know. But if there is one consolation, it's that you can now follow chi.qui.ti.tos (and your other favorite blogs) via Bloglovin'. All you have to do is create a profile with them and then thanks to their genuineness (and with this import link) you can import ALL of your Google Reader feeds. Yep, it's that easy guys! I've been using them for a while and they are a great way to get all of your must reads in one place. But hurry because today is the last day and you don't want to loose some of your favorite reads now do ya?
Life lately has composed of... making colorful confetti filled eggs... taking a second look at some projects and freshening them up just a bit... designing an exciting new collection (soon to be revealed!)... and dressing up the nieces in some beautiful mini moroc tops! What have you bee up to?
