Gosh i have been so busy with the boys, preparing for christmas and crafting i have really put my blog on the back burner.
Over the past month or so i have been making christmas papercuts, teachers gifts and a few commission pieces. My little facebook page https://m.facebook.com/littlecutoflove Has been set up and seems to have had a good reception. if you would like to view my work so far please pop over and have a look, if you like what you see please leave a like 🙂
But for the meantime i leave you with a few sneak peek of some of my work.
I hope to see you there.
I have my love of crafting back :0) i got stuck in a bit of a rut when i was pregnant with o. I couldn’t sit for long and felt pretty awful most of the time, so it was put on the back burner. Well o is 7 months now and i have definitely fallen in love with making pretty things again.
Since o was born i have started to learn the art of paper cutting. Once the boys are in bed i get going and start creating, which has resulted in a fair few late night as i just can’t stop onces i start. At the moment i have made a few gifts, but hope to set up a little business if the interest is there.
So here are a few cuts that i have been working on.
I have fallen in love with the boys legging range from the shop baby zara. We have a fair few pairs already but I would buy the whole collection if i could. Little O looks so comfortable in them and i just love the prints and pattens. I normally team them with either a long sleeve vest or a funky little t shirt. These are definitely a winter staple in his wardrobe.
What style baby clothes do you just love?
This is the little mans class bear, every weekend Bumble goes to stay at one of the children’s houses for an adventure. Last weekend was little mans turn and he was over the moon. Every Friday morning he would wonder aloud if he would be choosen to take Bumble home after school.
When i pick him up from school he came running out with a smile on his face holding that bear round its neck shouting “mummy we got Bumble” I was so happy for him, but now stood there wondering what we were going to do with bumble, we had to fill a scrapbook in with all our weekend adventures and it just happen to fall on the other halfs full weekend at work.
Little man did a fair bit with Bumble and enjoyed his weekend. On friday after school we popped out to the toy shop where they both choose a toy which they played with when they came home. Saturday was an indoor rainy day full of playing, drawing and arts and crafts. Bumble took an afternoon nap with little mans baby brother. The evening was spend watching a film and snuggling down. On sunday morning we made a big chocolate slice for all of little mans class. once lunch was over and the other half was back from work, he took little man and bumble out to walk the dog. We then spent a lot of time printing, cutting and gluing all his work into the school scrap book.
Monday morning was soon here, so his chocolate slice, scrapbook and Bumble was safely packed away ready to be returned to class.
And so it begins. …..
The small one is now 6 months old, and this past week we have started to introduce food!! he loves it, the new tastes and textures and he really seems to enjoy being part of meal time.
We decided to do baby lead weaning as he is quite independent and has very good hand to mouth skills. So far he has munched on Apple, Mango, carrot, sweet potato, cucumber, broccoli and he stole a Yorkshire pudding for my plate!!
I don’t think he has a favourite food, he just loves it.
This is the happy little face that greets me every morning. He is so content and never in a rush to get up (unlike his big brother). He squeals and chats, kicks and rolls, his always happy to welcome a new day. The smile that fills his face when i pop my head round his door is one of the best starts to any day.
Wanted to wish you all a happy weekend I woke up to this, this morning and its the perfect way to start a day.
We are not up to much over the next few day, the other half is working so me and the boys will spend most of it at home. I need to do some general house work, but apart from that we will be playing in the garden, watching dvds and enjoying each others company.
What are you all up to this weekend? whatever it is have fun!!
