On my bookshelf...Amelia Earhart

Written by MarĂ­a Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Mariadiamantes, the Amelia Earhart edition of Little People, Big Dreams is a must for your little ones bookshelf.
It's no secret, I'm a huge fan of this series of books, having featured them several times on the blog before and there are plenty of new titles coming out soon so look out for Georgia O'Keefe, Jane Austen and Anne Frank published later this year.

This book tells the story of the most famous female pilot of the 20th century, Amelia Earhart.
Having an interest in planes from an early age, she learnt how to fly one and then bought her very own six months later.
She then went on to set a new women's world record, was the first person to fly over the Atlantic and then flew solo across the Pacific Ocean.
Quite the career... and all beautifully detailed and illustrated throughout.

Available from Wordery here.

Something for the weekend...

If we need anything this weekend, its something to cool us down!
Well, Paper & Stitch might just have the perfect antidote.
Obviously these are only for the adults amongst us, but you can make them kid friendly by swapping the rum for blended strawberries, so everyone can enjoy these thirst quenching lollies in this glorious heat.

Head over to the Paper & Stitch blog to get the recipe and instructions.

Happy weekend! Enjoy the sunshine.

Weekend pinning...

For me, weekends are a time when I can indulge in one of my big loves...
Luckily for me, I have a husband who shares my passion for culinary delights.
Saturday morning conversations in our house pretty much always start, not with “Good morning”, or “How did you sleep?”, but with “Right, where shall we eat today?”,
and there’s no complaints from me for that. 
Priorities right?

So, after a Saturday spent devouring whatever splendours the elected tea room, country pub or restaurant has to offer, Sunday mornings are for discovering (or rediscovering) a good food blog, and trawling the archives for recipes I want to try out over the next few weeks.

This weekend has been no exception, and it’s seen me pinning some rather yummy looking food pins, along with lots of other loveliness...

How cute are these li'l guys? (1)

Beautiful colours from Jilly P (2)

Wow..these rhubarb and almond hand pies from Donna Hay are on the to do list for sure. (3)

Love this quote! And as an all round self doubter/ general overthinker I think I should take note. (4)

I will definitely be trying this simple bread recipe from a firm blogging favourite of mine, Cider with Rosie (5).

The Summer Peach Galette from Fork Knife Swoon is just too much. Look at that divine vanilla ice cream melting...I could literally eat the whole thing, and probably would given the chance! (6)

Beautiful golden florals by floral designer Yasmine (7)

Creative Quarters...Noe Onoff

The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Noe Onoff.

Noelia (aka Noe Onoff) is a self-taught illustrator from the Canary Islands, Spain, currently based in Texas. 

She and her husband arrived there last year to work, but it's not their final destination. They would like to travel and live for a while in other countries. For them, this is a great way to grow personally and professionally.

She has a Masters Degree in Music and a Bachelors in Elementary Teaching. 
Before she knew about the illustration world, she was a full-time cellist and elementary teacher. 

One day, she started drawing for fun and to express herself, and little by little she found illustration as a profession, and she fell in love with it. 

She loves to teach and enjoys being with children and also learns from them. But, in this job, she feels that she can't let her creative side come to life, so she started to take online classes with Lilla Rogers, Jackie Rueda, Meisi and Lisa Congdon to improve her artistic skills.  

At this moment, while she is working as a substitute teacher in the USA, she is illustrating for others and designing stationery and decorative products for her Etsy shop

Through her work, she wants to bring joy and beautiful things to others. For her, its all about giving a little more of color to people's lives, to inspire and motivate them.

For Noe, inspiration comes from the world around her, music, childhood books and movies. Inspiration for her is the sound of rain or her favourite musician, the words of the audiobook she is listening to, or the sun lights during the sunset. Being outside enjoying nature gets her creative juices flowing. 

You can get in touch with her through her Instagram account
