Thank you all for the extra sweet birthday wishes for the little guy.
I wanted to share a few pics (ok…maybe more than a few) of his day which was spent at Bundoora Park with his lovely friends and cousins.
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 ♥
It’s been hot in Melbourne, definitely ice-cream kind of weather.
I’d been thinking alot about ice-cream and dreaming about an ice-cream related craft after chatting to a lovely friend so once again with a team collaboration I now have my own personalised bag designed by Amelie and sewn by me.
I must confess, I am such an emotional mum, I cry at times, I hug waaaay too much, there is not one single night that I don’t tuck them in when they are asleep and whisper that I love them.
They don’t ever realise I do that, but I know I do.
Every time something new happens, I just want to freeze that moment and treasure it forever
I want to hold on to these two little beings for as long as possible
Their funny little quirks and the stories they tell are what makes me smile, every single day.
Oh no, there are bad days, days when things are just too difficult to deal with but I don’t mind, I take the good and the bad and appreciate my glass as being half full.
So, for now, I am capturing these baby teeth because someday soon, they’ll be all gone.
Two down, many more to go.
I made this brooch for me using Jodie’s fab tutorial but I think it suits Amelie so much better.
You should make one, it’s so easy, all you need are fabric scraps and it will make you smile.
What are you creating today? I’d love to see!
See you soon friends ♥
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
