Friendship Bracelet Tutorial
Just recently I came across this bracelet making technique I have never seen before even though it’s only been around a couple thousand years. : )  It is called Kumihimo and it comes from Japan. This is just the very basic technique of Kumihimo, there are many much more complicated ones you can find on ...

Chocolate Cheescake with Cherries
It’s cherry season now and so it's the perfect time to share this crazy delicious cherry cake recipe with you. I’ve seen this kind of cake around Germany quite a few times already but never had the chance to try it out (usually the final piece has been snatched by a person standing in line ...

A tassel toothpick, or: a tooth fairy wand :)
Ever since my first daughter Tila lost her first tooth I do something silly when she leaves her tooth for the 'tooth fairy'. In Slovenia, where my husband and I come from, we have a tooth mouse instead of a fairy. So every time Tila leaves her tooth under her pillow I replace it with ...

Wildling Barefoot Shoes
I know you’re usually used to crafting posts from me but when there is a gem I really feel I should share with you; I just can’t resist. Like these more-than-amazing shoes from a German brand called Wildling. Anna and Ran are a couple with three kids and for a long time they lived in ...

Reusable Food Wraps DIY
Did you try the Beeswax Food Wraps already? For the ones that don’t know them already, they are cotton pieces of fabric coated with a mixture of natural ingredients like beeswax, oil and tree resin and they are meant to store food just like plastic wrap minus the bad. You use the warmth of your ...

Dandelion Potato Salad
In Slovenia, where I was born and bred, almost everybody eats this kind of salad at this time of the year. It is very common for us to go out and pick dandelion leaves in the big, clean (dog free!) meadows. They are the most delicious at the beginning of spring, before the plants bloom ...

Last Minute Valentine's DIY: Heart Shaped Seed Paper and Origami Envelope
I don’t give a lot on Valentine’s Day, usually. But I try to create something sweet for my husband and the kids just so they know it exists. Does this even make any sense? :) So this year I decided to craft a last minute Valentine's DIY: tiny seed paper hearts and easy envelopes to ...

And all families participate. Last year we had to either buy or create little treasures for the Fishing Game. They had to ...

Three products I can't live without
There are three new products that I discovered this past summer and can’t live without anymore. Well, ok I could but don’t want to. :) The first one is a TePe Supreme toothbrush. I am no expert when it comes to tooth brushing but my best friend suggested I try this one and it was ...

ZooModern, sustainable and eco-friendly Wooden Creatures
Because of the amount of toys of all kinds on the market today it’s pretty hard to get excited over the new ones. I remember just eight years ago when I had my first daughter everything was different. The variety was a lot narrower. So what I try to do now is find and accept ...

Jonas Paul Eyewear: Cool Glasses for Kids with a Story
I am so very excited to write this post. It’s a subject pretty close to my heart. Let me tell you why… My daughter Tila has worn eyeglasses since she was one year old, and the second she received her first prescription I promised myself I'd find her the coolest pair of glasses for kids, ...

Wooden Stacking Trees from Uuio
I have an (almost unhealthy) obsession with wood. Sometimes I try to imagine the most impossible things made of wood. A couple of months ago we were in a toy museum in Nürmberg in Germany and I saw an old doll from Haba made of wood, so the first thing I did when I got ...

Bonnsu Miniware: Beautiful Bamboo Dinnerware with a Suction Cup!
I’ve been looking for a decent dinnerware with a suction foot ever since Tila was a baby. I’m a big Baby Led Weaning advocate so I let my kids eat on their own from the start but plates really fly from the table almost every time I go away from the dining table even if ...

Super Easy Bread Recipe that looks Store Bought
Sometimes I feel like all I’m sharing with you is either food or cosmetic recipes but I just can’t help myself – they are just too good not to. And maybe you also noticed one thing in common between all of them? They are super easy and usually also quick to make. I have so ...

Homemade Lavender Essential Oil
If I had to choose my favorite summer smell it would be the smell of the sea and lavender. Unfortunately I can’t bottle up the first one but I can do that with the lavender! And if only I knew how very easy it is to do it I’d make tens of them every year. ...

Make Your Own Sunscreen at Home!
I was playing with an idea of making a sunscreen at home for a while because I’m very picky when it comes to them: they first need to be mineral without nanoparticles and can’t have any perfumes and/or nasty chemicals in them -- I even wrote a post a while ago about it. And when I ...

Wiksten Patterns

Make your own Mouthwash
I was talking to Esther a few weeks ago and she asked me if I ever made a mouthwash myself and it was kind of funny because I was just thinking about trying to. Sadly most store-bought mouthwashes contain all sorts of toxins and chemicals that you don’t really need in order to fight bacteria ...

Homemade Vegan Pudding
We gave up cow’s milk quite a few years ago. We still eat plain yoghurts, cottage cheese and cheese but we only drink plant-based milk (our favorite is oat). I also replace the “normal” milk for the oat one in all the recipes and although dishes usually turn out just as (if not even more) ...

  I found this recipe for a Barberry Cake in our local organic supermarket’s monthly magazine and it turned out great but not only that – I later learned that the main ingredient, dried barberries, are also extremely healthy! They contain berbeerine, which has been used for its medicinal properties for a long time. The ...

Natural Mascara from Gaya: a must-have!
I (used to) love make-up. That was pre-kids when time was something I still had, but now to be honest I’m too lazy for it. I only use mascara when I don’t forget and a concealer when the nights are too rough. Another thing is that I'm really complicated when it comes to skincare products. ...
