{ Calliope Blog Hop WINNER! }

vendredi 21 novembre 2014

 Life has been taking upon sewing in the last week!
But I do not forget you and I really enjoyed reading all your lovely comments of my backpack:)

 Today it is time to announce the winner of the Calliope Fat quarter bundle:

What a sweet backpack! I love how you centered the muse on the back. I am still afraid of piping though;). This line is a definite purchase for me. Expecting baby girl #4 in April and I think she'll need some accessories from these fabrics!

Congratulations: Jamie!! I will be in touch soon!

I will be back soon with a bit more sewing!

I am so glad to be part of  the launch of Hawthorne Threads new collection: Calliope.

It is no secret to my followers that Hawthorne Threads is one of my favorite online shops.
I found it online by chance 2 years ago and fell in love with its range of fabric and customer service at once.
This november they released 2 home-printed collections: Calliope and Bengal. 
Calliope is the perfect fall collections for girls or women who have kept their girl's souls!
The colors are soft corals , beautiful pinks and indigo.

I am so so glad to be the first stop on the Lotta Skirt Blog Tour! Welcome!

Every single pattern Marte from Compagnie M creates has a perfect fit, great instructions and that special "Marte twist" that makes each design so unique !
So I was very happy when she asked me to test this new pattern for her!
And the result is one of my favorite and most worn garment so far this fall.
I wear it to go to work at school and it is both stylish and extremely comfortable.

Tous les patrons créés par Marte pour sa boutique Compagnie M sont magnifiques: ils sont bien faits, très bien expliqués et ils ont toujours cette touche un tantinet rétro que j'adore!
J'ai donc testé ce nouveau patron avec joie et je suis ravie du résultat: cette jupe est extrêmement confortable et je la porte souvent.

{ ILLUSTRATED FAITH // english post }

lundi 3 novembre 2014

It is funny how I feel that all things are falling into place right now.
Everywhere I turn, whatever I read leads me to dig deeper in my relationship with God.

When I was a scrapbooker I got to know Shanna Noel's work and blog. 
After I decided to give scrapbooking a break, I kept on reading her blog along with a few others.

She is a very talented lady but she is also a very inspirational lady in terms of faith.
She now hosts this series on her blog called "Faith illustrated" and has created a Facebook group I joined three month ago. 

This group is amazing. Women from all over the world share their process of relating to the Word in many creative ways.
They journal in their Bible and have a real relationship with the Word, in their own way, using their creativity to build their relationship. 
When I found the group, I was struck.
Could it be that God had  me develop my creative gifts just so that I would one day find this group and use my creativity to praise Him and get closer to Him?
This sounds insane but it could be true.

{ OUR HALLOWEEN / Un halloween médiéval }

samedi 1 novembre 2014

 Halloween has come and gone. 
It is not really big in France, as it is not anchored in our traditions. 
But in our home, we would take any chance to have fun and dress up!
My kids usually go with me when I run errands, dressed as princess and zebra!
