Hey hey D.I.Y. lovers,

This Summer, all our attention was focused on one of us’ wedding: Marine as the bridesmaid and I (Anne-Laure) as the bride. Who says “wedding” within the HowTo team means D.I.Y.

Even if the season hadn’t officially started, we organized a Spring edition of the Creative Sunday in early March. This edition took place in Hinterland, a very nice coffee shop in St-Gilles. The cosy atmosphere and the large windows letting the sun coming in (when there was some…) was just perfect to spend the afternoon enjoying a cup of tea while learning how to cook Melo Cakes (do you know those little bowls made of chocolate, biscuits and filled with foam?), to make a day cream and to weave.
