Stills

It ended up being a bit of a busy week here with events at school to attend, birthday parties, nights out, friends to visit and presents to make.  As the girls get older the busier we seem to get, I think they have a better social life than I do sometimes, where did that social life go..... I know that these years will fly by fast so I'm glad to have this space to record these moments, to remember these years where we spent time doing things together. How was your week?

1. Tulips.  He spotted them when he was at the shops and thought of me.
2. Miss 13's cupcakes presented for the judge.
3. Miss 9 creating her own book, the story, 'How the Butterfly got its colours'.
4. More grey skies.
5. A little crochet purse for a little girl turning 9.  I found the pattern here. Last weeks crochet creation didn't quite turn out, it was suppose to look like this but mine sadly didn't look quite as sweet.
6. Another little handmade gift for the same girl.  I used this tutorial for the bracelet.
7. Sparkly shoes for her date with her Dad a night out at the opera.

Joining the lovely Em again this week.
