My very beautiful and talented baby girl is seven years old today!! I can't believe it! Not sure if it seems longer or not, but seven seems so grown up! She's already fashion-conscious and thinks boys are 'bleurgh', apart from Troy Bolton of course (HSM, for those of you who don't know). He's 'yummy', apparently.
So proud of her xxx

Look at this! I'm in so much trouble.... The photo frame was bare and cost about £1.50, so I thought my dear daughter could try and decorate it for my Mum for Mothers' Day. I didn't expect this! She painted it with yellow shiny acrylic and raided my stash for flowers (which are, of course, from WildOrchidCrafts) and pearls. Now, they had to be secured with the glue gun, but I thought it would be better (for oh so many reasons! - fingers, dog, floor, etc) if I operated it for her. So she told me where to stick stuff and I duly glued!
I did curl up the bottom of the lily stem for effect, but the rest of it is all her own work. She's 7 next week (St Patrick's Day, no less!) going on about 19, and she seems to have all the talent she needs... I for one am very worried! TFL xx
... in the local supermarket and saw this little plain box. And I remembered my set of woodstains, so I bought it. Some flowers and pearls later, this appeared!
I used a clear stamp around the edges too, with some dark green ink. It came out quite well, I hope! TFL x
Aha! I've got my baby laptop back!! She's sort of intact, but missing a few fonts. However, I hope to get them back next week. I am so glad to have it back, but it feels weird - just not the same. Nothing is where it was and there are still some bits missing - but it's better than that soul-less thing of hubby's!!
So we're sort of back in action... Wanted to show you what I've been up to while I was unsupervised! It started out as bare wood and a box of woodstain! I quite like it although it came out a lot darker than I wanted. TFL xx
