Happy Birthday Mum

Today is my Mum's 60th Birthday and yesterday was her and Dad's 40th Wedding anniversary, I can't believe she is 60 already, it doesn't seem that long ago that we planned her suprise 40th & 20th Wedding Anniversary! Yesterday I spent the day in the kitchen, having the best time I might add! Cooking up a storm. I decided on a Chinese Banquet for all my family, it turned out great.

I couldn't find any placemats in the right colour, green is Mum's favourite, so I made my own using Canson cardboard. Instead of making placecards I used scrapbooking letters on the placemat. A very inexpensive table setting that looked great.

My son, the artist

It seems Jack who turned 7 in February, has become obsessed with drawing, any spare moment when he isn't outside playing with his friends you can find him sitting at his desk drawing. He draws these lovely little creatures, all different ones, some are from a book about drawing that I gave him for Christmas, some have come straight out of his imagination. I will cherish this beautiful piece of paper forever.

cushions galore

My poor blog has been somewhat neglected due to the fact that I have so many orders and not enough hours in the day, it's a little nuts actually.

We also had a lovely few days away camping for Easter at a great place called Neurum Creek Bush Retreat, we have been there many many times and it never disappoints, it's extra beautiful at the moment because of all the rain we have had.
Here are a few orders I have completed, I hope the children that received them loved them as much as I loved making them.
