laundry > love or loath?

Hello & Happy Monday all!

Its hot here in Melbourne with temperatures soaring up to 35 degrees celcius today so lets do the laundry…yea? I for one absolutely loathe doing the laundry! I dislike anything to do with clothes: washing, scrubbing (especially when you have toddlers), folding, ironing etc…Ironing is probably the most hated chore lol, and I’m sure you ladies agree with me on this one. Anyhow, we recently renovated the laundry…yes after I gave birth! I seem to love renovating during/after birth. When I had my firstborn, we renovated our kitchen. When I had my second, we renovated the bathroom. Now with number 3, we’ve just finished doing the laundry. Reason being: hubby gets a lot of time off-supposedly ‘paternal leave’ to look after his child & I…and since he just stays home, might as well be productive! Although the renovating part is finished, the decorating part is still in progress, so once its all completed I’ll snap photos and share it with you guys.

So hopefully by having a new laundry, I would enjoy doing it more…especially ironing (we bought a second hand wall mount ironing board/centre so it makes ironing a lotttt more convenient) Anyway the reason for this post is to share with you lovely readers a fabulous funny freebie I came across on Facebook. I extracted the quote and designed one to match my laundry decor. Click the link below to download the PDF, print and put it up in your laundry. Happy washing ya’ll!

*Printable is in A4/8×12″

Freebie #3 – Printable DIY Eid Bunting Flags

Our third week FREE DIY Printable is for the home!
*You may download this printable at the end of post* 
 

Freebie #1 – Printable DIY Eid Bunting Flags

 

What is a celebration without a welcome banner right? So for week #3, we have a bunting flag template that you can just simply print, cut and decorate!
Materials needed for this project:
1. This printable template
2. A4/8×12” White paper (200gsm/110 lb +)
3. Ruler
4. Cutter and scissors
5. Hole punch
6. Ribbon or string
Cut the flag template using a cutter/scissors and ruler.
Don’t be lazy like me and cut all 6 pages together in one go! Thank God I got them all right- be sure to align the pages properly if you’re using this lazy method!
Use a hole puncher to make 2 holes on each flag.
Again, the lazy me…punching all the holes together. Woohoo I got it right the first go! (if you stuff up, you start again from scratch!)

Arrange them to make “EID MUBARAK”.

Cut your string to the desired length (measure where you want to hang them first). Thread the string/ribbon through. The first letter, you need to put the string from the top (see pic above).

And then just add all the letters, making sure the string/ribbon is behind the flag so you cant see it.

And now decorate! I chose to hang them at my old unused fireplace as mantel piece decoration. Absolutely love it! And the best part is, the colors go extremely well with my living room decor!

This will be our first Greeting Card project and we are so over the moon with how it turned out, Alhamdulillah.

These cards are part of a collaborative effort between in my studio and The 114.Remember a couple of months ago I said that Aida (from the 114) and I are collaborating on something? Well here they are!

There are 4 designs this Eid, and one of them is a Ramadan card (featured above). The Eid Cards come from the Geometry Collection(rectangles, circles and triangles) and the Ramadan is part of the Pastel Collection.

Playing with geometrics and a cool colour palette, the cards translate perfectly our inclination to clean and contemporary aesthetics. Nothing tacky or over the top, in fact they are so contemporary and modern that it fits in with our way of life now. This is what we are about-clean designs, and thats it!

Printed in Australia on 100% recycled paper, rest assured your purchase is truly an eco friendly product! We do hope that these cards will be finding their way to homes around the worldl, In Sha Allah!

{interior design} kitchen mood board

Here is a little teaser of something exciting that I am currently working on. Mood boards are often created as a basis for designing, ie- the research part. Once the designer and client have agreed with the theme/feel/look of the space, then the work begins! Design proposal, design documentation and design construction will take place one after another. So stay tuned!

what’s the time on the clock?

piro

Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down!
Hickory Dickory Dock.

This Piro clock was originally bought from Ikea many months ago. They are no longer selling it now, so I was glad that I managed to get one. I knew it had potential rather than just using the default pattern that it came with but it never crossed my mind to use it for my daughters room. As I was reading to my daughter ‘numbers’ one day, it clicked to me that maybe I should design her a clock with huge colourful numbers. And so I did. I’m really pleased with how it turned out, bright, colourful and really child friendly… the opposite to the ‘dull’ black that it originally was. Now, my daughter knows how to point with her finger number 1 (and slowly showing number2) whenever we say 1,2,3 and mashallah she is only 15 months!
