Hello, I’m Ira and I lives in Neuchatel, Switzerland with hubby and our little one. Because its holiday time, this time I will show you my Saturday routine instead of other day, because from Monday and Friday its just busy how to entertain the little one :)

Usually on Saturday, I woke up around 8.00AM, of course Nuriana already woke up but still play in her bed with her plushie.

08.15 – 09.00

Hubby already woke up earlier and help himself with the breakfast, so Nuri and me help ourselves with this breakfast. Yup, I got the coffee and tomatoes, Nuriana had her turkey and cheese sandwich. Meanwhile the dishes from last night are waiting too….

09.00 – 10.00

When Nuriana play and watch TV with her dad, I’m rushing to check Etsy, oh well what else :) and pack the orders. It’s Saturday, the PO closed at midday and I have to go to the main PO in town for it.

11.00 – 12.00

Nuriana and her dad try to adjust her car seat in the garage before we leaving to town to do some posting first and here we go on the way to Neuchatel Old Town from our apartment.

12.15 – 13.30

It’s Saturday, just so many thing that we need to do, usually try to do as fast as possible before everything shut down by 5PM! So here we go hubby and Nuri were walking in town, he need to fix his glasses, I want to get my big envelopes in papetier and draw some money in the bank also.

13.30 -16.00

There is one thing that we always do in the weekend, that’s a lunch out and we love to try difference restaurant, this time we went to a very old restaurant, look at the place for your umbrella beside the chairs, the meals was oke :). Then we went for our food shopping, not too many this time because we will going for our holiday next week.

after 17.00
usually everyone just gone to bed right away, no big dinner tonight except some quick salad and bread for hubby, five minutes noodle for Nuri and me. When those two settle again in front of the telly, I tried to do little bit work, checking Etsy and Twitter again then off to bed by midnight, which is earlier than my normal sleeping time :)

Bon weekend for everyone :)

Look what the postman brought me!

Remember my necklace felting?

Well, because Mitsy from is the sweetest Mitsy I`ve ever known she sent me a package full of wool rowing for felting. And because she is the world`s sweetest Mitsy she sent some extra too.

You should have seen my face when I opened the package!

There popped up so many lovely things packed so nicely...
Here is my first "It`s not perfect, but ok"-felted necklace I made using Mitsy`s Felted necklace tutorial

Look what she gave me too! This is so pretty!

And i just couldn`t stop smiling when I found these Feeling cards! luuv these :)

...and the sweetest thing of all; I think this have been a chocolate "button" but because of the terrible heat we have here it had melted totally. But i think i can secretly drink it when noone is around ;)

Thank you dear Mitsy!

Friday is my day: Petit Plat

Hello dear Friday friends! Back from holidays with fresh new blog for Fridays. Remember to add "My day is Friday" to your friend list and we will follow you.

So, are you ready to travel again through the world and visit amazing artists and handcrafters? I am! And today we will have super yummy trip to France. We will meet Stéphanie from She makes the best and the most beautiful cakes and cookies in town in miniature size. Amazing work!

Bon appetite!

Ok so you’ll have a peek at a regular PetitPlat day.

I usually get up at 8:00 am. I don’t like to stay long in the bed because I’m the most efficient in the morning! My boyfriend usually stays in bed until 8:30. – 9:00

I go down to take my breakfast, you’ll see that food (real one) is a important part of my life.
First, the ‘kids’, Boudu and Kheops get some food and fresh water.

My breakfast is always composed of:
A multi-fruit juice + a bowl of hot chocolate + bread (preferably whole wheat and cereals) and jam.

I then take a shower, get dressed and around 8:45 – 9:00 I’ll start my PC, to check emails, answer convos, look at new comments and prepare some packaging.

Today is rather a good ‘light’ day so I’m going to make some photos for my shop. Besides I’m not in a clay mood right now and have plenty stuff at home which I need to photograph in order to sell!
You can see that my ‘photo studio’ is rather messy, miniatures, dollhouse furniture and paper lying everywhere…

12:00 I’m getting hungry, so it’s time to cook! Yay! I love cooking!
Today I try something new, potato and trout ‘boulette’ with some salad. Easy and good.

Today is a bit special, I’m doing some cookies after lunch, with my boyfriend’s help. I don’t eat cookies everyday, but we’re in holidays, parents are not at home, so we’re eating more and better :D

I get back to work, which means mooore photos! Here a result of today’s photosession.

4:00 pm goûter!! Or ‘a-cute-name-for-a-sweet-break-because-it’s-just-too-long-to-eat-nothing-between-12-and-8pm’
I usually take a bowl of cereals, sometimes brioche, sometimes bread. No cookies, don’t know why, but I prefer them as dessert :)

Back to work and some more photos and editing.

8:00 pm, dinner!! (oh how I love food :D)
This evening spaghetti frutti di mare yum yum!

After doing the washing up (we don’t have any dish washer), cleaning the kitchen and feeding the animals I usually just surf on the web.

Around 0:00 time for sleeping and reading a bit
