It’s Easter Sunday. I gave the kids far too much candy and set them loose in the back garden. 30 minutes of peace.
I settled down with my crochet hook and got to work.
Just about 40 more squares to go…
Yesterday I found an oilcloth remnant in a local upholstery shop and for the neat sum of £1 it became mine.
I made this with it.
Comes in pretty handy doesn’t it?
Happy Easter all! xx
Last weekend I hosted a Lalaloopsy themed birthday party for my daughter’s 6th birthday. It was a wonderful opportunity to use my crafting skills and supplies to put together a truly colourful and creative event.
The main party table incorporated a wrapping paper runner and the plates accented with flowers I had crocheted. These also doubled as quirky party favours.
There were games of Twister and musical chairs and a chance for the guests to decorate their own paper dolls or foam pirate hats/swords. This proved to be a real hit!
I rolled patterned paper into handy popcorn cones and fashioned a holder from a floral foam block covered in spotty wrapping paper. A bit of ribbon added the finishing touch.
There were plenty of sweet things and a mountain of colourful cupcakes.
I decorated a few round nesting boxes with scrapbooking paper and trims from my local fabric shop for a fun centrepiece. Amazing how far a little imagination can take you!
During the run up to the party, I fell in love with the Lalaloopsy dolls and playsets. As a result we’ve amassed a collection of 5 large dolls, 1 little doll, 10 mini dolls, and 2 mini playsets. Total guilty pleasure but my girls adore it!
This has to be one of my favorite parties to date and the very best part, of course, is that the kids loved it – especially the birthday girl!
A beautiful day indeed! ♥
