Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

I confess I stole someone idea last weekend.

 

J'avoue avoir volé une idée ce week-end.

 

About a year ago I suscribed to a blog called Keeping It Simple.

 

Il y a environ un an, je me suis abonnée au blog Keeping It Simple, et j'adore lire les articles bourrés d'idées le matin en buvant mon thé.

I love finding its posts in my mailbox and reading them over my morning cupsss of tea... Last week, there was a post about a cute neighbour's gift.

 

La semaine dernière, cette idée de petit cadeau m'avait séduite.

When I had a gift to make last Saturday, that post came back to my mind.

 

Elle m'est revenue en mémoire quand j'ai eu besoin d'une idée originale.

 

Of course I had none of the usual toys most of you bloggers have. I don't have any vinyl of any colour...

 

But a former French president said that "In France, we don't have petroleum, but we have ideas!".

 

Evidemment, je ne possède pas les accessoires du style vinyl autocollant... Alors, j'ai mis un peu de peinture sur des étiquettes scolaires autocollantes!

 

So I took asic white school stickers and painted them with black and orange paint, leftovers from Halloween, then cut them. Here's what I did.

The picture was snapped at night in my ugly kitchen, seconds before getting in the car to deliver the present. As usual I had forgotten to take pictures before... So I apologize for the lack of light, setting, etc...

Thanks for visiting! And Merry Christmas to you all!

So nice to hear from you! I will let Jasmine the cat know you think she is beautiful, and I think she would love the excitement of having a new feline French friend! Merry Christmas to you!

I forgot to mention, silly me, how lovely your soap bottles are. I need to make one for our bathroom, so thank you for the great idea!

So nice to hear from you, and I will let Jasmine the cat know that you think she is beautiful. I am sure she would love the excitement of a new feline friend from France! Merry Christmas to you!

C'est vraiment très mignon ! Tu deviens une experte en bricolage ! Et que dis-tu à ta maîtresse de primaire qui affirmait que tu ne savais rien faire de tes doigts ?
