Two years ago today, I was in labour and Lucy and I were hoping against hope that Niamh would arrive and give Lucy the best birthday present ever.. Instead she (Niamh) waited a bit and arrived just over an hour into the 13th of Feb (Happy birthday Holly!). Today it meant that we could spend a happy grown up day crafting, because Niamh's birthday is tomorrow.. The best of both worlds and cake two days running.. Win win!
Last year I spent a huge amount of time on sewing a quilted bed runner (see here) for Lucy, and I inadvertently set a crazy birthday trend that neither of us could sustain - how do you go bigger when you've already done the biggest? So this year we agreed to keep presents and treats to manageable proportions.. I took this literally and decided that I wouldn't make Lucy anything..
Cue Elle, the lovely Elle from down the road, the amazing Elle, mother of Mia, the fabulous Elle of 'Aelfen: Hand painted wonderment!' fame. Elle! Thank you, you spent so much time on these glasses and I am so grateful! Lucy loved them! Yay! Mission accomplished!!
Nada Sound Therapy and Elle painted them into being. (As an aside, go take a look at Dave's website, have a look at the photos running on his home page - if you wait long enough, through the slide show, you can clearly see the bunting I made him strung above the gong in the treatment room. And I made the testimonials page! Take a look here - could I have been less concise? Or more excited? LOVE!)
Anyway, anyway. Today we went to Bella Crafts and got our craft on!
There were several options for craft and I chose Decopatch. So easy - see here.
Big thank you to Vikki for having Niamh this morning, really appreciate your help. Niamh had a great time and really enjoyed napping in Barneys bed - so cosy!
Happy birthday Lucy, Happy birtheve Holly and Niamh x x
