I am trying to stay busy without spending money, i.e. going to cafes or out to lunch. With help from Pinterest, I have found productive ways to spend my time!
Right now, I am working on two products, a little girl’s tutu and an uber-cool bohemian play tent. Neither are common here, as the world of Pinterest has not made a huge impact on Serbia.
If you are interested… here is a link to the spot where I have gotten the super coolest ideas for everything from kids crafts to recipes to how to fix this or that!
None of my Serb girlfriends have heard of it. But I know lots of American-Serbs love it, They found my pics of Serbia, and have reposted or followed my boards and I have reciprocated.
The first tutu was just finished today. The tent will take some time yet. I want to make it really fun. With lots of frills and colors. It is mostly pink but adding more vibrant hues will give it more flare.
I am excited to see the finished work. Something to look forward too. I love the sense of accomplishment when a craft if completed.
I would like to make quite a few tutus. It will make playing dress up that much more fun for a few special little ballerina’s I know. The first one turned out quite well, don’t you think?
My little model was sleeping, The doll volunteered for the job.
I admit is swallows up the dolls lower half, but it will fit a child beautifully! (big smile)
The progress on the tent is going well.
(my work in progress) Should be fun for the first birthday party next month.
I will give all the info on the tent when it is completed. Trust me it has been no small feat getting all the supplies here in Serbia with the language barrier. But I am managing well! Yippee!
The munchkin woke up, so I got to take a few pics with a real model.
I’m so cute, too bad mom didn’t take a clearer pic of my cuteness.
my best side! although it is sometimes stinky.
I’ll have to do a “how to” blog to make these crafts in a following post.
