A part of me: Baking with Odette

April 02, 2014

A part of me:

Baking with Odette

I love Odette aprons. All of them.

Louise got the Butchers apron set at her 3 years old Birthday as a present.

Since she is playing and baking with it all the time.

I wish I can have one, just like this one {yes I have a girly side, but shut}

I did a little set up just to show you.

Alexis did the cake {I hate it in 2 seconde – yes I am a fond of food girl}

Thank you Odette for making such beautiful product for kids.

Thank you Alexis for baking with love for me & the kids.

Spring is in the air

to celebrate it Clafoutis & La maison de Loulou create another kit together.

We ask our friend Melissa to help with the pictures; She is a super talented photographer & amazing mom.

{All the credits for the pictures are for her}

now

***  The Bunny Bunting Kit ***

After few paper & fabric cuts, fews gluing, and few knots, you will have your beautiful Bunny Bunting.

Oh wait we are missing something

The Cake, pardi !

Well we are giving you also the Famous French Yogurt cake recipe in the box.

It is one of my favorite cake, for few reasons but the most important one: Louise is always baking it by herself.

Last week-end she baked the cake, did the bunting and we celebrated Spring with our friends,

Anne’s daughters Marguerite and Muguet {from Clafoutis}  & Jackson, Melissa’s son {the photographer} all together.

So now it is your turn.

Happy Spring

You can find it in Clafoutis Boutique

What would Celina do?

February 19, 2014

mister fox t-shirt & free template by La maison de Loulou

Today it is a Surprise Post for my girlfriend Celina from Petit a petit and family blog.

What would Celina do?

With few friends from different blogs we decided  to surprise her;

The idea is to make something inspired by Celina;

I picked her Kawai t-shirt.

I used her technique to do my own version with a twist.

……………………

what you need:

template, fabric markers and fabric paint

Print the template, insert the template under the t-shirt,  re-draw  & add some colors.

You are done.

……………………

You can download the PDF template I draw and do your own version

To see what we did you can go on my Pinterest Board name : What Would Celina do?
