I have been far from idle this week.

I am thrilled to say that I received my first orders for a diaper cake. Believe it or not - and was hard for me to believe - I received two orders : one for a newborn and one for a christening.

Although I was very busy at work, I made both cakes ahead of time - it was really fun!

One for a boy and one for a girl. I believe that the boy's is rather simpler but girls are so much girly, pink and fluffy!

So here they are:

I had to make a last minute gift to my cousin Mary, who visited yesterday for my daughter's birthday.

So I presented her with a basket of home-made products (forgot to shoot a photo of it) and a mini-album with some great recipes. It was a fun project and less time- consuming than the jarred tomatoes I was making simultaneously!

As my kitchen and my office are practically one room divided by a kitchen bench, I managed to combine cooking with scrapbooking successfully! Sometimes I am amazed of how we manage to steal some time to spend on a favorite activity even by combining two conflicting tasks!

Here is my mini-book cut by Sfragidomania . Τhe recipes are from Οι συνταγές της παρέας all tested and very yummi! The stamps and some of the papers are from Kars. The distressing and the flowers are made by distress inks by Tim Holtz and all the rest are from my stash.

Second post for the day! Wow!

Yesterday my dear friend Dionysia, gave birth to her second son, after 9 very difficult months. Today the child is already out of the NICU! Congratulations guys! You fully deserve to be parents!!

It is time for me to upload the diaper cake I made for the baby.

As the baby was expected to arrive a bit prematurely, I had made the cake last week, but did not want to celebrate before the baby's birth.

The time has come






It is my first diaper cake, but I like the procedure, so I will make them more often! As soon as I find an other baby I mean! Ha, ha...








I have not post any work for ages.

I just received the alphabet mask of Tim Holtz's and I was dying to use it, so I made an experiment and I rather liked the result. Instead of making little cards, I will attach the tags to the presents I will give on Sunday.




As I have not participated in any challenge lately, I will submit the left tag to Simon Says Challenge .

I used:
- Stamps: Ship by Artemio and Swirls by Tim Holtz
- Paints: Distress Inks, Glimmer Mists and Mica Pigments
- Mask: Alphabet by Tim Holtz

Hi, it is my first day back in Athens, after 3 splendid weeks in Crete. It was so amazing that Athens looks worse than usual! Lol!

I missed you all, as well as my crafting tools.

It looks like I did nothing all this time, but in reality I made several layouts plus 2 minibooks - not really stuff for the Internet as they are full of pictures of my daughter and my niece.

It is a nice month for crafting as friends and relatives are on vacation, and my daughter will be away to her grandparents, so I will be just me and my hubby.

Unfortunatelly, we are both the only ones remaining at work during August, so the amount of work we will have, will be enormous!

I hope that we will survive.....

So everybody, make some diving for me too and see you at September!
