Butterflies and Gardens

Hi there everyone, I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was pretty good, getting a chance to spend some quality time with my girls and taking one of them with me to the Handmade Expo. Since I didn't get a post in at all this weekend I thought I would share a photo of what we got up to on Saturday. With the lovely weather we are having it was perfect to get in the garden and give it a good water so my Miss 5 was happy to help. Miss 9 was content to ponder through magazines to find recipes to put into her cookbook, so a relaxing Saturday and Sunday was more about catching up with family and friends.My Miss 9 will be celebrating her birthday soon so my goal is to try and make the party treats to go into her bag. Today I made these butterfly bookmarks, pretty simple and will come in handy I'm sure. Thanks for stopping by, until next time bye!
