Amelie loves popping foods into her toy cooker and ‘baking’ them, so I thought I’d make her some biscuits from air dry clay. These cute little yummies turned out really well (apart from the Oreo… that one was a bit dodgy) and I think they were my favourite thing I’ve made for her so far! Except that I wanted to eat biscuits the entire time I was making them. Read on to learn how to make your own.
My little girl turned 2 yesterday. Without wanting to sound like a big dull cliche…. its gone so Fast! Sniff…
Happy birthday Amelie, We’ve loved every minute of it.*
*well okay, not EVERY minute. We don’t love it so much when you want to get in our bed at 3am. Or when you throw your food on the carpet. Or when you happily clonk another child on the head with a toy frying pan. But we definitely do love YOU, very much. xxx
We celebrated Harper’s 1st birthday on Monday. My bake-spiration is my Auntie Debbie. She can literally turn her hand to any cake design imaginable and runs the most beautiful cake company, Iced Overs Cakes. She kindly offered to make Harper a smash cake to which I jumped at the chance – having a cake and being able to take photos – yes please! The design was based on Harper’s favourite bunny, with buttercream icing flowers. It was far too pretty to destroy really.
With my endless piles of fabric scraps and impending due date peeping round the corner (yikes, where has it come from… I’m so unprepared), I decided to settle down and do a little relaxing evening sewing by making a baby quilt for little button number two. I’ve never quilted anything before, and I wasn’t really sure how to do it! But I learned from my mistakes as I made this blanket and was happy with the outcome.
Inspired by this tutorial on www.creaturecomfortsblog.com (which in itself is a really adorable blog), and given my current fetish with all things made of clay, I decided to have a go at making a little air-dry clay mobile of my own for my little one’s bedroom. I recently put some sticky stars on her ceiling and she loves to stare at them from her cot (“oooooh, DAR!”) so I thought I could do with a bit more ceiling decoration. So here’s how I did it…
