Tommy Turtle



Jordan's nickname before he was born was "turtle", so for Christmas I made him one using another Funky Friend's pattern. I gave personalised him by embroidering Jordan's initials onto his underbelly. The cheeky thing snuck into Jordan's cradle this morning to say 'hello' before he is wrapped and put away ready for the big day. Then he went for a little look out in the garden although it won't be long before he comes out to play again. I used the same fabric as I did for the giraffe (from Lincraft) with some fabric from my stash for the underbelly.

Mail holder


This is yet another UFO finished for Christmas. It was already painted (like five years ago) so I just added the cut-out flowers.

Jordan's second month weigh-in

Time is flying. Jordan is two months' old already. He has gained one kilogram this month and here's the stats:
Length: 59cm, in the 75th percentile for his age
Weight: 5290g, in the 40th percentile for his age
Head circumference: 40cm, in the 85th percentile for his age.

Another Christmas present....



and another WIP finished. I made this one into a recipe album using a Kaiser chipboard album and patterned papers. Suddenly I feel like rum balls and white Christmas. YUM!

I crafted...


in between toddler taming, baby wranging, trying to catch up on a bit of sleep or to actually get some, and to maintain my sanity. This album didn't take alot to finish, it was a WIP from last Christmas and I just needed to add a few finishing touches. Now ready to wrap...one down...more presents still to go...
