Happy birthday Mandy

My one year old son and I decided to make my sister in laws birthday card together.

I went out and bought lots of craft stuff including paint, paint pots, a messy mat, letter stickers, beads, faux gems and a few other pieces.

We got Ben to use his hands and feet and make some prints, and then I added some gems and the foam letter stickers.

Also with the craft pieces there were letter beads and some accessories to make a bracelet or jewellery. So I decided to make an auntie bracelet just for fun.

And here’s the finished card, many thanks to Ben Ben for helping me 😊



A new Hobbycraft has opened in Bedford and I had a chance to go there last week.

I got a few purchases;

I got an owl knitting bag which I just adored and I really like the pattern,
A Decopatch kit (formerly Decoupage) which has Macaroons and Cupcakes,
A Pick ‘n’ Mix of beads (I felt like a kid in a sweet shop),
An owl motif which can be ironed on.

The ball of yarn was kindly from my mum.
