I am soooooo excited to present you the new Mon Petit Violon website www.monpetitviolon.com! I just love how it turned out! It is just a first step, but I have big dreams about how to make it better and more interesting and easy to use. For now I am just happy how clean, simple and elegant it is! :-)
And so, it means that I am moving away from Blogger. I moved all my previous posts to the new address, but I can't move the followers as well. So, you are very, very welcome the check it out and renew your subscription! I am planing many exciting things in the new year and don't miss them! :-)
Already today there is new tutorial waiting for you - tutorial how to make a pompom wrapping paper! I hope you will enjoy it!
Thank you for being with me here on blogger and hope to see you in my "new home" as well!

I saved these photos from our trip to Switzerland. It was at the beginning of November but they were already totally ready for Christmas! I guess they really love it!
Speaking about Christmas - I prepared one fun tutorial for you and will post it tomorrow (hopefully...) :-)
P.S. Wishing you a good week, though even on another side of the world we are all heartbroken after what happened in Connecticut... Be safe and love your loved ones even more than ever!

It’s been a long time I am following Elizabeth Kartchner’s blog and I just loved her idea of a challenge to take 12 photos on the 12 of the month. Especially as this 12 was quite special – I mean 12.12.12! And so I decided to participate.
After my little boy has gone to kindergarten (usually it’s daddy who is bringing him there) we have breakfast with Sophie. The breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! Just simply because of cup of cappuccino it could be the favorite one. Quite often for breakfast I prepare pancakes as we both love them. To make them healthier I use whole grain flour or barley flour, I add some fruits, like apples or bananas and instead of sugar I use honey or agave syrup.
Usually after the breakfast I get busy with my shop, as I have to send out all the patterns which were sold during the night and answer the emails. Meantime Sophie still finishes her breakfast, or I try to get her busy in some way.
After I finish my work usually we get out for a walk. Today we did it later as on the way back we had to pick up Alex from the kindergarten. And it means Sophie could watch some cartoons while I was getting ready and prepared her quick lunch.
For self portraits I almost always use remote control. For me it works much better than self timer. But every time I take my remote control Sophie starts the fight to get it in her little hands as soon as possible…
And here she goes… she couldn’t stop for a while…
When I got back my remote control I tried to make some photos of my Striped Mittens for a feature in one magazine…
… but my little helper didn’t want to give up and soon the remote control was in her hands again!
This is probably my favorite plant in our house right now. I just can’t wait to see it in all its beauty!
When Alex is at home we have Lego invasion here! He can play with it for hours and can make incredible constructions, but he can also create incredible mess. I can find his Lego everywhere and the worst part of all is to walk on it… especially during the night…
Our Christmas tree… well, just some bokeh of our Christmas tree…
For dinner I tried new recipe for Focaccia… It was good, but still has to be improved…
Well, that was our 12.12.12! :-)
