MONDAY’S A COOL DAY! By pioupioukids

Here comes Monday again, and it’s time for your 5 minutes to yourself! So make yourself a nice smoothie (summer’s on its way after all) and sip it slowly while you read this week’s interview. My favorite smoothie mix: Put in a blender one peeled banana, 3 to 4 pitted dates (medjoul are best), a cup of milk (I like hazelnut best), a teaspoon of vanilla, a tablespoon of honey/maple/agave and a handful of raw cashews. Add some ice if you like it chilled, blend it all until smooth… Yuuuummm.
This week, I am going to talk about myself and my shop,!

- Who are you? Natacha Lee

- Anything else you’d like to add… I’m glad to be part of a great community of crafty busy moms. It’s just one of the many things I’ve been able to do since stopping work to look after my son, apart from being 100% involved in his upbringing.

The one walking in the garden with the stripy shirt and green pants! Some people call New Zealand "Godzone"... it's true in many ways!
