Hi friends!  Here’s round 2 of the best of 2012. Yesterday I shared the best of  the”live here, eat that” posts from 2012, and today it’s all about DIYs that I made this year ( you can also find round-ups from other blogs here). Here some of the favorites:

1. Felt balls tags, which I made for my daughter’s second birthday party.
2. Fabric wall stickers, so easy and so much fun!
3. Cross-stitch stool. I’m sure more of you have seen this one already, but since it’s been such a hit I just had to share it again!
4. Glitter monogram cake toppers…birthdays are just better with glitter!
5. Elderflower, blackberry & peach party ice cubes. yum!
6. “When they grow up” birthday posters - such a sweet tradition for the little ones birthdays :)

This year’s been so much fun – and there are so many more little projects I want to make and share with you…so here’s to finding time for that in 2013 :)

This post is for my friend Clemence over at Oh the Lovely Things, who I know is just crazy about her cats – and all the cuddles they share :) I’ve never been able to have a pet since moving away from my parents house after high school – let’s not count how many years ago that was, please! I’ve just been moving around way too much. But I hope that soon we’ll be able to have a pet so that my little girls can know moments like these morning cuddles with a kitty.

PS: 24 Merry Days giveaways – day 19! Today we’re giving away a $50 gift card for some pretty Wit & Whistle cards on Create Like Crazy! Happy birthday Jordan, by the way :)

Sorry about the late post today, guys! We were traveling to Europe since we’re spending the holidays with our families in France and Denmark, and got delayed big time so I couldn’t post earlier . In any case, here is a fun little home I wanted to share with you guys today! Remember when I put together some inspiration on how to display your collections in your home a couple of months ago? Well, this scandinavian home of Anders Arhøj is the perfect example of those ideas. It shows you how small pieces can make a big statement on your walls, and I love the amount of personality that’s pouring into this house through the display of these gorgeous collections. The books, the masks, the tiles….anything goes!

And to go with this gorgeous home, how about a little ice cream sampler for your guests? I absolutely love this photograph by Yuki Sugiura via the Foodie Bugle. An ice cream sampler is always a crowd pleaser ( I mean, come one, who doesn’t like ice cream?!), and when presented in pretty ceramics like in Yuki’s photo, it’s so simple and pretty to look at!

PS: 24 Merry days giveaways – day 18! Today we’re giving away some gorgeous Rifle paper prizes on here on Lolalina! :)
