spotted this (http://thelongthread.com/?p=3885) post, I knew we HAD to rush out and get lino straight away...I set Robs up designing and printing and she LOVED seeing her design in print. Although six prints later she had gotten over the feeling...! Great cards were made for all the parties this weekend..

butterfly necklace peeping out in the background...another winner)
After seeing these wonderful ideas (http://whimsy-girl.blogspot.com/2009/05/unconventional-vases.html), I was immediately challenged to "think outside the box" when I received this beautiful gift bag and flowers for my birthday. The flowers are in a tall glass vase inside the bag and I fluffed them up to "fill" out the bag. Thanks for the idea, the gift and the flowers!

I have posted this before but for some reason unbeknownst to me the photo never downloads but it was such a great day I thought I would try again, so here goes:
Today we finally got to have Robs party which was cancelled just before her birthday because of her accident. I had in mind to tye-dye T-shirts so we chose a rainbow theme. We set sweeties out on a rainbow background we painted; we mixed up juice in all(well 6) of the rainbow colours; we made a cake which had all the colours of the rainbow when we cut it and then we dyed t-shirts! I used this(http://http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5oUjr0UibY)is method, so while some girls were busy with the dying the rest could either make rainbow flower arrangements or rainbow keychains out of beads and buttons (which they got to take home on rainbow ballons!). It was hectic but thanks to the help from some faithful moms we got all 19 girls sorted without any stains on clothes (I hope..). So, done for another year but great fun had by all ..

One of Fatcat's many favourite nap spots is on my desk in the morning sun. He will sleep on whatever happens to be on that spot -which a few days ago were 35 flower cutouts waiting to go on cards and which are now covered in sand and cat hair! So I thought he deserve a bed for his 10th birthday -and he hasn't budged since!
