I've also been preparing for a visit from some lovely friends who are flying in from the Land of the Vikings. Any readers who know me will realise that means a LOT of tidying and housework, something I am most severely allergic too! But I've also made some little gifts for the children.
Some little drawing books made from recycled cardboard . . . .
and can you guess what these are? Well, I'm so pleased with how they turned out I may just make some for the shop.
But it's not just been presents for the kids, I've also been tarting up the house.
My number 8 looked sad and lonely before I made it this snazzy frame. I just sprayed an old picture frame a bright bubblegum pink.
I think it cheers the whole front of the house right up, and with the Jubilee / Olympic bunting still up, I think it will be a lovely greeting for our Nordic visitors ♥
Now, if only we can get the sun to visit too . . . .
