The blog craft-swap-meet was fun. Organised by Justine and Nichola, and held in the beautiful and inspiring surrounds of Amitie, we met, nattered, laughed, swapped gifts and admired. I even got to hold the most precious package of all – a six day old baby.
It’s a cliché, but it is always lovely to meet people whose blogs I read or have exchanged the odd email with, or even viewed from afar (the twin goddesses of Backtack were present). Good to put real life people to those words and pictures on the screen.
Since then it’s been a whirlwind of activity here getting Son #1 off to camp for a week and making birthday preparations for the littlest member of the house (8 years old today).
For various reasons Son 3#’s school class didn’t get their own birthday cape and crown when they became a class last year. So the other day I put my hand up (why, oh why this week of all weeks did I do that?) to make the cape, and another mum made a beautiful felt crown adorned with beads and ribbon and felted ‘gems’. Excuse the dodgy picture of the cape but it was finished at midnight last night (of course), and this morning I had to photograph it in a rush before it was whisked off to school. Kind of nice that my child gets to christen it, as I made it.
