You gotta see the baby shower!

I mentioned last week about the presents I made for my bestie's baby, and now I am sharing the baby shower! It was a crafternoon! Yay! My favourite type of afternoons! We set up a craft table with some material, transfers, threads, fabric markers and so on. I made a few prototypes to decorate and give the party goers a few ideas as well.

It was actually a really fun afternoon with friends to celebrate the addition to the gang. I wish there was more time in the week to have more fun like this...

Her dirty little secret

Busted! I snapped this photo of Chloe sleeping. Sucking her thumb. tut tut tut. Chloe only started sucking her thumb a few months back after seeing someone at day care doing it. Now she can't stop - it's comfy she tells me! At first we thought it was cute, but now, it's becoming a little bit of a problem. She is getting calluses on her thumbs and they are getting cracked and nasty. We have tried a few things to help her stop and they are working during the day, but she is still doing it in her sleep. What have you tried that works? How do you stop a thumb sucker sucking their thumb? Say that 3 times fast!

{made} cute animal stitcheries

I made these really cute stitcheries for my bestest friend from primary school. I made these for her new baby, Sofia Eden. They are so cute I almost didn't want to give them away! But I did...

If you want to make your own, they are by penguin and fish and you can get some here at the shop .

It's been a while...

I haven't been blogging lately. I just can't find the inspiration to do it. But, I really want to get back into the swing of writing. There have been a few things going on lately a whole lot of nothing and something :)

One thing that we really enjoyed recently was having my dad over for fathers day. We had a great barbie with the family who were around that day and shared a few sausages and drinks. Dad hung for a few days and spoilt Chloe with plenty of reading. I think he knows Giraffes Can't Dance off by heart! Thanks for coming over and spending time with us Dad!
