I have been a little behind on playing along with memes lately, I seem to start them but then get easily distracted and the excitement wears off
cake made by me inspired by Amelie’s drawing
I love the way you call me mamma,
I love that you are so sensitive,
I love your imagination,
I love your creativity,

Happy December to you all, the countdown has officially started and our advent calendar is up.
The kids both loved decorating each box but they don’t know what’s inside yet, first noodle box will be revealed after school.
I love getting the kids involved in things and because this is really all for them, I thought it would be the perfect way to countdown to Christmas.
Pegs decorated with washi tape and hung on twine.
There are craft treats or sweet treats in every box and to avoid disappointment, there are two treats in every box.
They both agreed that they will take it in turns each day to open a box and they get to choose which treat in the box is theirs.
I even included some special notes as I know Amelie is loving her new reading skills.
So what are you up to for the first day of Christmas?
Do you have an advent calendar?
I’d love to see it if you have posted it.
Happy creating to you ♥
As each year passes I collect bagfuls of memories and pile them in my heart, so when I am sad or in need of a smile, I think about the little things that happen throughout the year and I smile and am grateful that I got to live it and enjoy it.
It was the big boys birthday the other day and the kids drew him this picture of our family which I embroidered and appliquéd
I asked them to draw onto the fabric panel with a quilting air dry marker and embroidered their drawing and message, as is, capturing their unedited creativity
It makes me smile when I look at it, you know how much I love kids drawings
