Happy Easter!!

OK, so I'm a few days late, but we were away over the Easter weekend and I didn't get a chance to post anything prior! We had a quiet Easter, choosing to spend it with family and I made some yummy chocolate eggs for the occasion with the help of my middle son!

Toyworld Lego competition

My boys are Lego mad! They have oodles and oodles of Lego! My eldest receives the Lego club magazine and the latest edition had some information about a Lego Competetion being run by Toyworld stores. Entrants have to build the Lego model of their dreams, take a photo of their creation and then take the photo in to their local Toyworld. So here he is with his building and creative skills, which he has called "Jay's Ninja Battle Tank". Lego Ninjago is one of the latest Lego sets to hit the market which he absolutely loves and where he got his inspiration from! We will head back to Tates Toyworld later in the month to look at his and all the other entrant's photos on display!

So if you have Lego crazed kids, get them to get their creative hats on and get building!

More Ribbon Blankee's

I met up with a number of lovely friends recently, they each had a little one around the same age as my youngest.

I had already given a ribbon blankee to all the babies except for one, so I made this one, for a little princess, the night before our get together.

Gorgeous mushroom print cotton fabric on one side, lovely soft heart fleece on the other side, and an assortment of contrasting ribbons.


A WAHM business on the way perhaps?

Over the last few years I have found a lot of joy in making and sewing different items. I have often wondered "do I have the skill and talent to make something more of this" both in a creative and business sense?

I hadn't felt ready to take such a plunge, however since the birth of my third son I have been working toward this new business venture. I have had a lot of encouragement from family and friends toward me starting my own small business in this area, and positive feedback from others about the items I have made.

Initially I plan to start with a manageable level of stock and also accept custom orders.
