Reality check

It's been so busy here the last few months. I was hoping for September to be more calm... I blink once, and the day is over. I blink twice, and the whole month is over. Again. What do you do when you have too much on your list?? My day could be double as long. Baby T has been really naughty lately too. He likes getting into everything, and turns the house upside down. Unlike my other kids, this one needs a little more attention, ahemhehem...gah... ahem a lot more attention.
The crazy thing is,  he is sooo cute.. that he can get away with murder :)

I have a few pressing matters on my table right now, which have to be tweaked a bit in order to be perfect.
A million ideas swirling in my head. So many other things I would rather do.
I would rather paint and redo some rooms in my house.
Go to the lake with the kids
Make cookies and ice cream with them
Roll around in the grass, and count the stars with them... hew, or, be rather here and talk to you.


Back to reality.

Back to work.

And, since I cannot leave here without a picture. I took this photo yesterday in my garden. Isn't it lovely?

Enjoy the last few days of Summer!

I'm back this week with more things to share.

Hello September

Goodbye busy... but dreamy August - we're looking forward to the most beautiful month of the year, September!

In August ... 

- painted the girls bedroom, family room, and the kitchen- then... repainted the kitchen again ... couldn't decide...phew
- splashed with the kids in the pool
- Tristan got a pony ride
- the girls read four books
- crafted a robot with the boys
 made many new friends over here (1000 to be exact) ♥ ♥ 
- designed a few new children's outfits for 2014
- designed new children's art prints, put finishing touches on another print line... ahem (top secret) :-)
- re-designed and improved a whole new website (launching this September)
- baked a cheesecake, a fig tartlet - yum, and cooked 60 glasses of marmalade
- decorated the house with fresh flowers from the garden
- prepared something for BACK TO SCHOOL , and made myself aware that I can be simultaneously relaxed and decided at the same time.

Considering all this happened in August, its kinda neat :-)

So now, we're getting started!

We will enjoy September to the fullest (before the cold hits)
We will look forward every moment, get inspired and be inspiring
We will discover every day with strength and joy - and give you a reason why the world has been waiting for Lalilu :)
It is such a gift that you exist -  and, I'm happy that you are joining me on my ventures!

So... uh... ( Need time to think about how to entertain all of you bloggers...)...

- there will be new artwork for kids
- some inspirational Prints for everyone else
- I will shower you with autumnal DIY crafts for you to make with your kiddos
- I will let you know where to buy the cutest little shoes for the littlest
- and throw a view scrumptious fall recipes in there for you as well!

This week is starting great! 

So, stay tuned... don't go away!
