Last week we did something we hadn’t done before together, we took the kids swimming. In our 16 years of friendship we have never hit the pool together. We had three out of the four buttons with us so we knew it would either be amazing or a total disaster… but we risked it. And (thank the lord) it was ace! And yes, that picture above, we did set the camera up on a sun lounger then leap unelegantly into the pool to try and get a pic of all of us. We felt like right idiots doing it, but we have no group photos!
This week has been so busy! Usually our worky things get spread out a little bit but this week, er, nope. All whacked together in one jam-packed half term week. It’s been fun, hectic and tiring in equal measures.
We began the week doing a day of baking for our next craft book… the theme of which we won’t say but there might be a little clue in the pics if you’re clever enough to work it out :-). Luckily we only had Grayson around to help us out who spent the whole day trying to climb on the table (where the cake was) and say “ARRGH”. He wasn’t much of a help decorating biscuits.
So, we’ve had a happy busy week! We spent two days in an art studio in Lewes doing a photo shoot and adding some finishing touches for a project we’ve been working on all year. We’ve put so much into it and to see it all coming together made us feel very proud and excited. We were happily getting under the photographers feet taking snaps of our kids as they behaved beautifully* throughout the shoot.
We had a lovely day last week at a photoshoot for our latest project. Lots of cake, mini kings and sugar-happy kids running wild in a village hall. There was so much to distract the tots that we even managed to have an actual conversation (although it was probably about the blog because that’s all we really talk about!).
We came across these beautiful t-shirts by Magnificent Stanley through our lovely friend Natasha’s blog, The Milk Stand. Her son Max has an impressive collection of these bespoke t-shirts and always looks so cute!
Becky, who runs Magnificent Stanley, kindly sent us an H and an A t-shirt for our Little Buttons to put through their paces.
We love reading what other bloggers feel passionately enough about to recommend online. At Little Button Diaries we’re all about sharing the love. So we asked the delightful Hannah from Make, Do and Push! what her favourite things are right now. Hannah writes a brilliant blog about her life; from pregnancy, parenting and postpartum fashion to beauty, crafting and her upcoming wedding.
