Tanit, Guerau and Lalylala's toys



[ENG] Three months ago, my best friend gave birth to tiny Tanit and awesome Guerau. 
I know I had to do something special appart from the bibs I already gave her. But, I was pretty sure it wasn't gonna be that something you can use all the time...I mean, it was going to be something cute. As simple and useless as that. 
And they loved it!
I've known Lalylala for a while now, and this its been the perfect excuse to get some of her wonderful patterns. They are so sweet. I wish I could get all of them, and also have the time (specially the time!) to make them, but doing two as a start isn't that bad, right?
It took me a while, but to be true it was more connected to my three thousand other things I am doing right now and not the proper pattern. It has some tricky parts, but once you understand what she means, it is very simple.
So during "Sant Esteve" we did the "tió" (yes, the magic log...) again and Tanit and Guerau got their presents, Dirk the dragon and Mici the mermaid.
I hope you like them.

[CAT] Fa tres mesos, la meva millor amiga va tenir a la petita Tanit i a en guapíssim Guerau.
Sabia que havia de fer algo especial (bé, no havia, més aviat, volia...) apart dels pitets que ja els hi vaig fer fa un temps. Però estava força segura que no seria res massa útil, que poguessis fer servir tota l'estona...més aviat seria algo "mono". Tant simple i inútil com això.
I els va encantar!!
Conec Lalylala de fa ja un temps, i aquesta ha estat l'excusa perfecta apoderar-me d'algún dels seus patrons. Son tant xulos... Ojalà els tingués tots, i sobretot, sobretot, tenir el temps (especialment el temps) per fer-los. Però fer-ne dos per començar no està malament, no?
Em van dur una mica de temps, però no pel patró en sí (que tenia el seu que) sinó per les altres tres mil coses que faig alhora, entre el curro i tot plegat.
Així que durant el dinar de Sant Esteve vam tornar a fer el tió un altre cop i la Tanit i en Guerau van tenir els seus regalets, el drac Dirk i la sirena Mici.
Espero que us agradin.

Working as an Elf

[ENG] Last november it was my birthday and a friend of mine gave me a lovley handmade body scrub. She did it, for me!! Sea salt, almond oil, lemon zest and eucalyptus... All natural. All wonderful. 
So I immediately thought about my christmas presents and asked her if she'd like to tell me how to make them. And we did prepare it not while ago, on a sunday evening while drinking margaritas. The perfect plan, isn't it?
Since I knew some of my friends would like to come, I told Tres PomponesTatxin Tatxan and Pilar, and they where pleased to come (not sure if the reason was the body scrub or the margaritas though...). We where lucky ( and probably thanks to a diogenes syndrome hidden there... ;) ) because Roser and Paula brought lots of essences and different type of oils so we could make a wide variety of them.
It is very easy to make (basically mix everything together and then end it with a nice "DIY" touch. If you wanna have a step by step, here I leave you this link.

[CAT] El passat novembre va ser el meu cumple, i una bona amiga em va regalar un exfoliant natural fet per ella. (Yuhu!"). Sal marina, oli d'ametlla, ratlladura de llimona i essència de llimona...Tot natural. Tot fantàstic.
Inmediatament se'm va ocórrer que seria una molt bona idea de regal de nadal i li vaig preguntar si me n'ensenyaria. Així que ho vam fer no fa massa dies enrere, un diumenge tot bebent margarites. El plan perfecte, no?
Com que vaig pensar que a algunes colegues els interessaria, vaig aviar a la Pilar, a Tres Pompones i a Tatxin Tatxan i van estar encantades de venir (no tinc clar si per l'exfoliant o pels margarites però...). Afortunadament, i molt possiblement per un síndrome de diógenes no resolt, la Roser i la Paula van dur un munt d'olis, essències i andròmines varies, així que vam poder fer un munt de combinacions al final.
És un procés super fàcil i en realitat molt ràpid de fer, però ja se sap, margarita va, margarita ve...de totes maneres us deixo aquest enllaç per si voleu saber exactament com fer-ho.
Watch out! There is a margarita at the back!! ;)

Yes, when I'm focus I do all sort of faces...
