Wild Wild 6 year old

My cow boy turned 6 and wanted a wild wild west them party for his birthday.

The sun is sinking in the west
The cattle go down to the stream
The redwing settles in the nest
It's time for a cowboy to dream...

A little bit of real history just to make sure kids know indians were not the bad guys
the movies want them to remember.

Panning for gold was the hit of the day ! Dirty so/but mucho funny.

...In his Crokett version.

Mister 6 already chose the next year theme for the 7th birthday : Space !
Can't wait to be !

Valentine words for long time partners

Do you remember when you first fell in love with THE ONE ?
Do you ? Well, good on you.
I was asking myself what kind of valentine cards 

I could give my sweetheart after 20 years together ?

It would say " Yes I DO love you. Why are you asking ?"

Or something like " Yes, no, I mean, Yes. I LOVE YOU. I just forgot. Sorry."

Old couple with young kids ya know.

Off white/black (for my kid's room)

My last project for 2014 was to refresh my 5 yo 's bedroom with some off white & black walls & few diy to display books and organize toys.

And with little help from my friends, we managed to paint these awful paneling.

Each side of the bed, we built two platforms

and all over the walls some tiny shelves to display some of the books.

The shelve we made from painted concrete blocks and wood earlier is even better now.

We're pretty happy with the results and don't plan to makeover again 
before Otohiko gets his majority.

Festive pompom

For Christmas, we turned pompom in a festive way.

Really easy to make.

weaving is a man's game.

Jemaine: Women love weaving, they love to weave.
Bret: No, weaving is a man's game.
Jemaine: Bret, you put a woman in front of weaving machine and just watch her go.
Bret: No, honestly, my Dad weaves, my grandfather was a weaver... I come from a family of weavers.
Jemaine: I've never seen a man weave.
Bret: I love weaving. I'm weaving at the moment, making a pair of trousers.

Despite I love Bret's quote, I follow Jemaine on this one.
I started weaving few weeks ago and just cannot stop.

my second (above) and third attempts (below)

Below, it's a collaboration between my 5 years-old and I.

He weaved a bit and mainly choose the wool to use.
New funny hobby for me and the little man.

Friendship • Desktop background

If you have one or more special friends in your life like I do,
you'll agree with these words.

Have NO Fear • Desktop background

Feeling inspired these days because of some new tools to play with.
Here is a background desktop of this little monster.
Have NO fear, that's what I say to my little one.

Digital Weaving.

I used to joke about hippies and all related and it became a running joke for my friends who like to tickle me when I tend to like or do things more "hippie" than I used to. Like Weaving.

Weaving is the last hobby I thought I could love. But the wool and the frame are ordered and I can't wait to start.

Meanwhile I made 2 illustrations of what I would like to weave.

Let's hope it's easy enough for a beginner !

Lego and ikea hack continues

Remember this post about my ikea shelves perfectly made for small lego display ?

Here are some new pics of it !

This one I decided to used a "link" between the tow shelves.
I could be improved with transparent blue brick to see the second display better.

Two shelves for my 5 yo master builder.
(The duck is from a batman set)

This one is from me.

A few shelves left to be filled but we're running out of bricks !
