birthday celebration craft

Mia and I made some special peices this year for some special people.
We began by making 2 sets of birthday celebration props for Prep.
The birthday angel .

The rainbow spiral birthday mat.

The birthday crown.

The rainbow silk birthday cape.

And the rainbow bridge story mat with a mum and a dad, a cradle, an angel, and a wee babe.

And here is my sweet son at his celebration!

term 4 2010

Greetings dear crafters,
It has been a long time since my last post .
Fortunately there has been no gap in the creating of projects and the giving of workshops!
 I have  many many  projects to share with you! 
I hope they inspire and delight you as much as they have us.

Our first project in term 4 was Mias beautiful affirmation pocket friends.
These sweet tiny pocket folk fit perfectly into the hand (and pocket) of a child.
They are a simple friendly reminder to a child of a small message of affirmation to help them deal with what might be a difficult time or a hard lesson to learn.
What a lovely way for a child to be reminded to be brave in the face of fear or to believe in themselves!
Each one is also accompanied by a simple poem of affirmation.
They were so popular with the children we have made them into a kit including our rainbow felt and silver plated bells.The bells have the most pure ring that is quite delightful every time it is heard.

Here they are with their affirmation poems.

Our next project was the beautiful felt flower hair clips from purl bee.Check out the free pattern at under rose barrette .Mia also created the lady bird clip.

 We then went crazy for the delightful soft trees.

 The crafty mums had loads of ideas that completley surpassed our original ideas.

We finished the year with the sweet and simple raibow silk fairies.
