Hi friends – I am back! Well, almost. I am on my way back – I have a few more guest posts left to share with you, but I am slowly transitioning back into blogger mode…and figuring out how to balance it out with the little babe ;) I am so so thankful for all of the wonderful blogger friends who have been helping me out since Freia was born, but I am ready to rock n’ roll again. As much as I love being a mama, the creative part of me craves being here and sharing things with you guys.

In any case, today I wanted to share another little slice of our home: hubby’s new office corner. His desk used to be in our bedroom (total mood killer, ha!), so when we found out we were expecting baby number 3 it was the perfect reason to find another spot for it in the house. We have a little window nook downstairs in the main room, so we figured we’d give it a try there. I wasn’t super excited to have the office space in the middle of everything – but better than in the bedroom if you ask me!

And it ended up working pretty well, I think! I added some plants to break the “office” feel and that big fig tree also helps seperate the office desk from our dining room. His gorgeous desk from EQ3 didn’t have any drawers so I bought a bunch of boxes at IKEA – they also help add color to all that wood. My favorite piece is the mid-century modern saddle chair from West Elm – such a gorgeous piece, it complements the desk so well and hubby thinks it’s so comfy…perfection!

Oh and yeah, it is officially hubby’s desk I know, but I HAD to sneak in a little flamingo in there, haha. Yo, if I am gonna have to look at this desk all day long…..hubby hasn’t said a word about that little guy yet – I think he’s a keeper ;)

Now, tell me guys – the built-in cabinets to the left of the office area is driving me nuts, I can’t stand that brown! Is it as terrible as I think it is, or am I just making it up in my head? would you paint it? I hate it when wood is painted brown! Our landlord told us that everything that we paint will have to be painted back to the original color when we move out, so wondering if I should bother….pretty sure I would like it a 100 times better in another color though!

PS: What our “office” looked like in New York……

Baby Freia arrived on May 9th, so while I take some time to rest and bond with my little girl, an amazing group of blogger friends is helping “fill in the gaps”. Enjoy their amazing posts!

Hi there! I’m Victoria from A Moka Day! I’m very honored to have been asked by the talented Audrey to share a little crafty project here on This Little Street while she is away. I like everything sweet and colorful, and above all I love crochet! So it doesn’t come as a surprise that I have prepared a tutorial to help you make little crocheted granny-square baskets.

They take a little time to assemble but are really fun to make, you can use any color combination that you like and move them around your house. I have already found many uses for them: to gather my yarn and crochet hooks when I’m working on a project, to put my most treasured nail polish bottles and jewelry or just to hide away the little bits and pieces that are frequently scattered in my home. I hope you will like them!

You will need:

- cotton yarn (in three different colors for me, but you can use as many as you wish)

- a crochet hook that matches your yarn size (a 3.0mm or D crochet hook in my case)

- a piece of fabric

- scissors

- thread and needle

- I also used a sewing machine for the lining but you can do without it

How to: 

Crochet 5 granny squares with 5 rounds each. The pictures below show a few of the steps but you can find many videos explaining how to crochet a granny square (this one for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFovV2kTNsk ).

 You will need to know how to crochet a chain stitch, a slip stitch, a single crochet and a double crochet. 

 In this case, start the circle and first round with color A (image 1), then crochet rounds 2 to 4 with color B (image 2) and add a 5th round with color C (image 3). Cut your thread and weave in the ends. Repeat it 4 times to get 5 granny squares (image 4).

You now need to assemble your granny squares to get a cube. Place the granny square that will be the “bottom” of your cube against another one that will be one of the “sides” (back against back) and crochet a single crochet with color C in each stitch (image 5). Cut your thread and weave in the ends. Repeat for each “side” so you will get the bottom with all 4 sides attached (image 6). Bring together the two edges of two of the “sides” and crochet a single crochet in each stitch (image 7). Repeat for each side so you get your cube (image 8). Add a row of single crochet to the top of your cube to give it a bit more structure. Cut your thread and weave in all the ends.

For the handles, insert your hook in the 3rd stitch from the last on one of the sides and crochet 30 chain stitches. Slip stitch in the 3rd stitch from the last at the other extremity of the granny square (image 9), simple crochet in the next stitch, turn around and work 1 single crochet in each of the 30 chain stitches. Slip stitch in 2nd stitch from the last of the granny square, single crochet in the last stitch, turn around and work another row of single crochets in the 30 stitches. Slip stitch in the last stitch of the granny square. Curt your thread and weave in the ends. Repeat on the opposite side of the basket. Tadaaaa! Your cube now looks like a basket (image 10)!

For the lining: Measure the perimeter of your cube. In my case 3,5 inches x 4 + 0,4×2 for the seams = 14,8 inches. Measure the height of your cube. In my case 3,5 inches + 0,4×2 for the seams = 4,3 inches. Cut a strip of fabric of 14,8 by 4,3 inches (in my case). Cut a square of fabric of the size of the bottom square and add 0,4 inches for the seams (in my case 3,9 by 3,9 inches). See image 11. Fold the long strip of fabric in two (face against face) and sew at 0,4 inch of the edge (image 12). Pin the square of fabric to the bottom of your long strip that now forms a kind of circle (image 13).  Sew each side along the pins. You now have a lining that forms a cube (image 14).

Insert the lining in your granny-square cube, slightly fold the edge of the lining to be able to pin it just below the edge of the cube (image 15). Use a needle and a thin thread to sew with discreet stitches the lining to the edge (image 16).

Voilà ! Just make as many as you want, mix them and play with them! And a final tip: when you take the two handles together, they can also make perfect small baskets for little girls :)

Hi everyone! Jamie here popping in from A Pair of Pears. I’m so excited that Audrey asked me to guest post while she is away resting and enjoying her new beautiful baby girl.

With all the babies being born around the blog world lately (and amongst my own friends) I thought it was the perfect opportunity to design something to go with all that cuteness. Here is a sweet little art print that you can easily print off at home (I like to use a heavy card stock) and hang up in your baby’s nursery. But I wouldn’t tell if you want to hang it in your own room instead. This would also make a great baby shower gift. Just pair it with a nice frame and you’re good to go.

Thanks for having me Audrey! Sweet Dreams.

Baby Freia arrived on May 9th, so while I take some time to rest and bond with my little girl, an amazing group of blogger friends is helping “fill in the gaps”. Enjoy their amazing posts!

Hi everyone! This is Brittni from Paper & Stitch. I’m happy to be guest posting here on This Little Street while Audrey is spending time with her beautiful Freia. I currently live in Florida and while things are still heating up in other parts of the country, it already feels like summer here. It is hot, hot, hot. So, I thought I would share a beach tote makeover I recently did, to get you in the mood for beach weather.

I recently went on a trip to the Virgin Islands and had bought this tote from Forever 21 to bring along with me on my trip. It was only $15, so I figured it was worth buying and just giving it a little makeover to add some more color. It only took me about an hour to complete (including drying time), so even if you don’t have much time for DIYs, you should be able to recreate this DIY idea.

 

Materials:

All you need to make your own painted tote, like this one, is the following: textile paint, paint brush, painter’s tape, and a tote or beach bag.

How To:

Step 1: Start by taping off stripes with painter’s tape and pressing down on the edges to make sure the tape is secure and is sticking to the surface well.

Step 2: Then paint inside the tape lines with several coats of textile paint.

Step 3: Remove the tape when the paint is dry and repeat steps 1-3 to create additional stripes in various colors. Once the paint is dry and the tape has been removed, head to the beach (or the pool) with your newly made over tote.

Freia one month old.

A month. It might as well be a hundred years. Freia has only been with us for a month, and I can’t even remember what life was like before she got here. So much has changed and happening in the past month. And I am not just talking about adding another person to our family. It feels like our entire family has changed since she arrived. Leaps and bounds for all of us.

First smile

We went from having this tiny little family that sleeps and eat all the time, to a baby girl that is getting more and more aware every day. We even got our first smile a few days ago :) The sweetest, cutest little smile. My heart just melted that day.

The girls have embraced having their little sister around – I guess embrace is not the right world…..they ran to it! They had been waiting for their little sister for so long. And the minute she arrived, it’s like they already new about how to be the wonderful little sisters that they are. Well, we had to teach them a thing or two, like “Don’t step on your sisters head, Olivia!” or “Madeline don’t you put that lollipop in your sister’s mouth!”….little details you know ;) But overall, all that love, they already had it ready for her. Such nurturing little girls I have.

And I, well, I’ve been learning to balance having 3 little girls. Which, to my surprise, is much easier than I thought. I am growing in my role as a mother, learning to be present when I need to and let go when necessary – which happens a lot nowadays. The girls have gained so much confidence since Freia arrived. I watch Madeline in the morning as she walks out the door in the morning carrying her lunch box, and I am amazed to think that in the fall she’ll start pre-school. I swear she was still in my belly yesterday. Time gets blurry.

And Olivia – she started writing on her own! The other day I found her at the table – she had picked up a book and decided to copy the letters in it…all on her own! Such a big girl. So we’re encouraging her that way. Can’t believe that in the near future I’ll have a little girl that can read and write.

Of course the past month hasn’t been without it’s challenges – physically as I’ve had some post birth issues, minor but tiring. How tiring? Well, so tiring that indeed I forgot how to write my own daughter’s name when I took some pics to celebrate a 1-month birthday – see pic below :D Oh. And I posted the picture on facebook without noticing it. The shame of it. Ha! This woman needs sleeps. And I am not the only one – big changes in the house means that everybody is more tired…and mmmm, let’s say, a bit fussy. Tantrums much? Yes, Olivia, you do have to eat your food……..

So what do we do? Well, we slow down. Take a deep breath. And try to focus on what the things that matter – our time together. Especially 1 on 1 time. Last weekend hubby took Olivia on a big girl date, and while Freia was sleeping I made paper princesses dress with Madeline. We had such a blast. Having more to balance has made me rediscover how important every minute that I spent with my kids is.

So we’re tired, yes. And sometimes things get challenging. yes. But in the end, being challenged is the only way to grow, right? We rise up to those challenges, and our lives get better for it. I am so so SO glad that we decided to add another child to our little family. Sure, things were easy and comfortable before that, and we could have chosen to stick with  it-  nothing wrong with that. But I feel so good having one more little person to love and care for and watch as she grows.

Turns out, I had a lot of space left in that little heart of mine. And then some :) Seems like that little heart also grows leaps and bound with each sweet little girl that comes to our life.

PS: Please forgive the typos – I am sure there are many! Like I said, this girl —> tired. All pics taken with my iphone and edited with the VSCOcam app. Follow my Instagram feed: @thislittlestreet

I’m most pleased to guest blog for sweet Audrey while she’s busy bringing new life into the world. Audrey and I share similar stories. We both have husbands from Denmark and are now living in the states after spending a few years in their home country. I’ve had my grandmother’s globe sitting on our credenza and I’ve been wanting a way to make it more personal and show where we are from so I thought I’d take the opportunity to create some markers that you can add on to a globe to either show where you are from or where you’ve traveled.

Materials:

paper
toothpicks or skewers
scissors
globe
pen
glue gun

Step 1: Cut strips of paper about 3” wide and ¾” tall.
Step 2: Write your message on your strips.
Step 3: Curl the paper using the flat edge of scissors to give it some shape.
Step 4: Glue the sewer to the edge of the paper.
Step 5: Glue the flags directly on the globe. I found that the glue doesn’t affect the globe.

Donzo!

I love having this globe in my house to describe where we’ve come from. It’s a great conversation starter!

Baby Freia arrived on May 9th, so while I take some time to rest and bond with my little girl, an amazing group of blogger friends is helping “fill in the gaps”. I’ve been a fan Bonnie’s Instagram feed for a while now (among others) - so I asked her if she would share a few tips with us all. Whether you have kids or not, you’re going to love her tips :)

Childhood is precious.  These little ones have been given to us for such a short time.  We want to soak up these moments and keep them forever, right?  For most of us, our cell phones (iphones, specifically) have given use a huge opportunity to capture our everyday moments, at home and away.  I would love to share some less technical ways I have learned to take better pictures, simply by changing my camera perspective.

Every Mom has a different perspective on the best way to photograph their kiddos.  For me, the distant and quiet observing point of view is my favorite because I prefer not to interrupt my more intimate moments for a photo.  I love watching them in their own little world.  Think for yourself about which moments make you smile.  Do you smile most when you have a loved one in your arms?  Do you crack a smile from a far, soaking in all of the childhood joy exuding from your little ones. Whatever it is, remember…

When you take a photo, you are telling a story.

1.  Don’t be afraid to leave out a face.

This may not be our Grandma’s favorite shot.  She might think it’s weird that you see hands but no face, but I love the joy I feel from remembering a moment with my kids and the beautiful way they used their hands.   Chubby baby hands are a total bonus!  Don’t forget to include some open space (like the table space above) so that you give the action in the photo some room to breath.  Nobody like a crowded picture, right?

2. Capture the funny.

We all have those pictures of our kids being goofy and acting crazy for the camera.  Those moments always make for great pictures.  However, my favorite funny pictures are the ones where they DIDN’T know they were being funny.  This picture of my son, above, reminds me of the time in his life when he didn’t know that a squishy round bottom in a pair of underwear was cute.  It made me chuckle quietly to myself every time I saw it (sometimes out loud).

3. Stand back with your camera. 

You don’t have to see the whites of a person’s eyes to capture the beauty in a moment.  Stepping away will help you gain a new perspective and, therefore, an entirely new photo and memory.

4. Black, white & contrast were MFEO (Sleepless in Seattle, anyone?).

You know those times you wants to remember but you realize it’s night, there isn’t much light, and the color ends up looking wonky when you snap a photo?  I totally have those too.  Those nights were meant to be black and white nights.  The contrast that is created in a photo when light meats dark can be extremely emotional.  The picture above, taken of my youngest son, was a scary and precious moment.  He had just received a shock from an outlet after sticking something in it.  While I was completely nervous about the cause and effect he had just discovered, it was one of the first times he seemed to understand the danger in being too curious.  I love the way he’s clutching his favorite stuffed animal.

5. Let’s see it again.

I get asked all of the time if I pose my kids or create scenes just to take pictures.  Usually, my pictures are completely “in the moment” and organic, where I speak nothing and just snap a photo.  Other times, I might be having a conversation with my kids and they do something funny or something worth telling a story about.  In a few cases I say, “I love it!  Let me see that again!”, “Show it to me again and hold it up and to the side.” or “Do that dance again”.  The moments are happening, but when I feel the moment is worth preserving beyond just my memory, I ask the kids to do something again so I can capture it permanently.

6. Capture the ordinary.

A funny conversation amongst your kiddos, silly little dance moves, the way a toddler waddles like a penguin, a child reading their favorite book, the groceries all over the counter, a messy room, your morning oatmeal…

It’s important to remember the moments that make up our every day, however ordinary they may seem.

7. Don’t  forget to enjoy the moment.

There are times when we aren’t able to enjoy a moment because we are so excited to capture it or share it.  Don’t forget to slow down and just enjoy their childhood.  It will be gone in a flash!

Hello, This Little Street readers! I’m Aileen from At Home in Love, and I’m really excited to be guest posting here today. DIY projects are my favorite, especially really simple ones that take hardly any time at all–so I knew I wanted to put together a little DIY for Audrey. I’ve had the idea for this one ever since I saw the landmark ring dishes at Anthropologie. I finally gathered all the supplies the other day and made my own landmark ring dish! I live in Seattle, so I originally wanted to do a Space Needle, but I couldn’t find one that was the right size. Then I came across this mini metal Eiffel tower on Amazon, and decided that would be even more perfect (since Audrey is from France, after all)!

You will need:

Mini landmark figurine – $3.18 on Amazon
Appetizer plate – 50 cents from Goodwill
Acrylic paint
Superglue

 
To make this, paint your figurine and appetizer plate in the color(s) of your choice.

Once the base coat on the plate has dried, paint a design on top. It could be anything! For my pattern, I decided to go with some imperfect, painterly dots. I think this would be a fun project to do with little girls, so they could make their own patterned ring dishes for their jewelry.

Wait for the paint to dry, then put a couple dots of superglue on the bottom of your figurine and press it carefully in the middle of the plate.

Once the glue is set, your ring dish is ready to be used! If you like it…you should put a ring on it!

Thanks so much to Audrey for having me on her blog! See more of my DIY projects and inspiration on At Home in Love.

Hi friends! Sorry I have been missing – turns out babies and little kids take quite a bit of time, especially when you give them a gazillion cuddles and kisses to make sure they know they are loved :) Baby Freia and I have also had some minor health issues, nothing serious, but the past few days have been a bit tougher than I expected. I had planned to share more pics of our baby girl and family of 5 with you, but it will have to wait until I get some of my energy back.

Instead, since I’ve been stalking people on Instagram to keep me busy while nursing the babe late at night, I thought I’d pics of my favorite Instagramers. Some of these people are professional photographers while others are moms home schooling their kids. And all of their pics that brighten up my days – and nights ;)  

PS: If you are on Instagram, say hi! I am @thislittlestreet  :)  And talking social media, did you hear that there is a new kid on the block? Are you guys on Pippit yet? What do you think?! Find me, I am also @thislittlestreet there.


1. Confettis.

Elena lives my dream of having a big family. All the love she has for her family shines through her pics & makes my little heart melt – I love the happy messy big family pics. Elena also has an amazing eye for colors and patterns, and her home in Sweden is as dreamy as the people that live in it. If I didn’t have my own cute little family, I’d want them to adopt me ;) Confettis on Instagram here.


2. A golden afternoon.

Bonnie is my super hero. I pretty much worship her ;) She home schools her kids. Has a chicken coop. And make mean cocktails on top of that. Oh, and she and her family also foster kids. I also worship her little girl – she can already cook and weave better than I can, she’s super rad. Every one of Bonnie’s pictures makes me smile, laugh, and think about life/what kind of mom & wife I want to be. A Golden Afternoon on Instagram here.


3. Leif shop

Leif is hands down one of my favorite shops out there, and I love Stacy’s Instagram feed. In her feed you will find a lot of the items that she sells in her shop, always styled in such a simple, pretty way. I love all of the colorful details that Stacy captures in her feed! Leif Shop on Instagram here.


4. Latonya Yvette

This gorgeous mama has amazing style and I simply love all of the pics of her and her little girl. I wish I knew how to rock pretty outfits like she does! She also lives in Brooklyn with her family, and it makes me a bit nostalgic of our time in NYC when I see her pictures. Latonya is expecting her second child any day now – good luck Latonya! Latonya on Instagram here.


5. Leslie Shewring

Leslie is my hero when it comes to color inspiration. She always pulls the pretties color palettes together, and very often out of not very much – some ribbons, a few flowers, bits of paper. As a blogger, I have the tendency to sometimes overcomplicate things – I always turn to Leslie’s work when I am on that path to remind myself that very often, less is in fact more, and that we can do a lot with very little. Thank you for all the inspiration, dear Leslie :) Leslie on Instagram here.


6. Mary Costa Photo

You probably have heard Mary’s name before – she often works with Kelly at Studio DIY and takes a lot of pics for her. I’ve been a fan of her work for a long time, but not until recently did I check out her Instagram feed – it’s so lovely! Mary is simply adorable. Now, If only Mary lived in San Francisco instead of LA, how I’d love to meet her – not to mention work with her! Mary on Instagram here.


7. Max Wanger

Max is hands down one of my favorite photographers out there – I put his ice cream print in Freia’s nursery. His instagram feed is a mix of his work, but also bit and pieces of his life with his wife and baby boy, some behind-the-scenes of when he works with great peeps like Bri from Design Love Fest or the fun gals at Ban.do. Oh, and you’ll find multiples pics of his feet too – he has the coolest socks and shoes in the entire school, this kid ;) Max on Instagram here.


8. Pom Verte

Stephanie is a French blogger that I recently discovered, and I love the bits and pieces that she shares on her Instagram feed. Stephanie loves to work with flowers and what she makes with them always makes me smile :) Also, she has the cutest little kitties, and let me tell you that they are in for a treat with her – she recently made them the cutest little hats and I’ve been cracking up at these pictures  for days now. Pom Vert on Instagram here.


9. Studio DIY

Ok, so many of you are probably already following Kelly – the coolest chicka on the block right now ;) But still, I enjoy her feed so so much that I just had to include it in this list. I mean, duh, how couldn’t enjoy a feed filled with colors, balloons, donuts and pinata? Not too mention Kelly’s bubbly personality that shines through every picture. Her pics always get a smile out of me :) Studio DIY on Instagram here.


10. Laurenswells

Another recent discovery for me is Lauren Wells’ Instagram feed. It might no be as colorful as some of the other feeds in this list, but her pics are always exquisite. I simply love how she captures little details and people, I love to see life through her eyes. Lauren is the cutest, and her pictures push me as a photographer to look at the things around me with a different eye. Lauren on Instagram here.

printable bookmarks by Little White Whale Baby Freia arrived on May 9th, so while I take some time to rest and bond with my little girl, an amazing group of blogger friends is helping “fill in the gaps”. Enjoy their amazing posts

Hello there, This Little Street readers! I’m Gloria from Little White While, and I’m super excited to be here today to share a fun printable with you all!

I fell in love with reading when I was a kid — my parents often found me holed up somewhere around the house with a Boxcar Children or Goosebumps book — and that love followed me well into adulthood. In fact, one of the VERY FIRST things I did when I first moved to Brooklyn was to hunt down the local library and sign up for a card. Oh to be young and crazy again!

printable bookmarks by Little White Whale

Sadly in the past few years, I started spending fewer and fewer moments curled up with a good book, as life and work and general Internet distractions took over. It’s something I really missed, so as part of my New Years resolutions this year, I’ve started putting a dent in my mile long book list! But what kind of bookworm doesn’t have a few awesome bookmarks at their disposal??

I whipped up a set of these whimsical “To Be Continued” bookmarks that look like colorful book spines for all you fellow readers out there! Download and print the bookmarks PDF here (I recommend printing on heavier weight paper for durability). Cut them out, and then you’re ready to crack open a book – enjoy!
