We moved

I just want to thank everyone who visited and followed this blog for the past 3 years… now that we moved to our new home… I’d like to invite you to visit us there, follow and witness our trying hard moments towards a minimalist lifestyle. 🙂

I will migrate and update most of my posts here and put it on our new family blog so we’ll not miss our favorite stories and we’ll try to write new posts to document our precious Memories and Everyday Life.

Thank you once again and Merry Christmas! 🙂

OOTWD: Six years ago… and beyond

When I made my first OOTD post, I was just thinking of immortalizing my wedding dress and sharing/celebrating our wedding anniversary here. Honestly, I was expecting comments or questions about my wedding dress and the relatively known designer who made it but I was wrong… you’re more interested with my DIY projects. 🙂 So, here they are and I hope you like it.

Disclaimer: Please do not expect much, I’m not a pro, did not attend any form of lesson or used any pattern when I made all of these.
