My Christmas roundup

Hi there everyone!
I said this before but the crafty awesomeness lately really is overwhelming, it makes you want to drop everything you're doing and sew, glue, cut and create. But! My family and I don't spend Christmas at home, we usually go back in Torre del Greco and we celebrate at my grandma's house, so it's pretty useless to decorate our home. We make the tree because it's a tradition and this year I had the "honour" to take care of it with my (chinese, who doesn't celebrate Christmas) boyfriend! XD

But I actually love Christmas-ish decorated houses, they look so warm and bright.. I got all excited and I saved tons of photos lately from various bloggers who shared their decorating skills. I'd like to show you my favourites, maybe they''ll be inspiring for you too!

1 and 2- A modern Christmas @ Sitting in a tree; 3- Christmas home tour 2011 @ Centsational girl; 4- Candy Christmas dessert table @ Shindig parties to go.

And more incredible projects and tutorials on my Christmas board on Pinterest, full to bursting point by now:

I saw this very interesting post about colours too: Color 101: the color wheel @ The 36th avenue. And, not Christmas related, but it's just too cool: Modern Alice in wonderland wedding @ Hostess with the mostess.

I'd focus..

Yo people! How's life?
Here it's cold and foggy but hey, who cares? Christmas is approacching, there is no time to be moody xD My Pinterest boards are exploding because of all the wonderful projects I see around lately.. inspiration overload! I'll go into a tailspin soon xD

I'll handmake the majority on my Christmas presents this year, I've already listed what I'm going to make for who. I'd also like to take care of the wrapping and do something nice to make everything more special and original.. I'd just like to have more time, I find it particularly difficult to concentrate on sewing lately, damn it D: FOCUS!!
Want to know what I'm working on also? No? Oh well, I'll tell you anyway.. I bought a little-size binder and I'm going to turn it in a recipe holder! As usual I made a draft to take note of the particulars (I'm kinda forgetful D: )

So basically I want to make a collage on the covers and envrap it with plastic so it won't get dirty, then find some cute food related paper to decorate the inside.
I flipped through my old anime/manga magazines to find some images and this is an initial idea:

What do you think? I love the One Piece image >: D !!

Last night I watched a live on TV: Coldplay live from London and it was love all over again with them <3 I mean, Chris was rolling himself on the floor covered in confetti! How can you not love him?!?!
"Major minus" from their last album "Mylo Xyloto" in my new current obsession xD :

Oh and look at this awesome nail polish I found last week, it makes a crack effect, it's very cool!
