Instead of giving kids more craptastic, smelly plastic, no so fantastic toys, I thought I would do something more personal and give them something handmade. Whether it be a pillow or a bunting, something that they’ll (hopefully like) and that their parents will like too. I would hope that they’d keep it for years and put in their memory box as they get older. Perhaps this is a pipe dream, but I remember as a child, I had a satin pillow case… it was my favorite thing for a long time. When one side was too warm, I’d do the pillow flip – which I still do today!
Blake, who is Soren’s best pal in school, is turning five and having a Robot/Outer Space birthday party next weekend. So I took advantage of being home on this drizzly day with Maebh and made him a coordinating bunting. Hope it’s a big hit!
