New Baby Gifts

Right, I'm back and I'm going to be cheery!  Firstly, I'll briefly say what has happened (because if I read a post like my last post, I'd want to know what had happened - maybe I'm just nosy!)


I just want to say thanks for the kind supportive comments, they were lovely to receive.  Rohan and I have broken up, after five happy years together.  We had different incompatible dreams, and we'd been ignoring that issue as we were so happy together.  We had to finally stop ignoring it and face facts.  It was a mutual decision, but a pretty devastating one.


Anyway - no more about that - no more moaning and being depressed - we are here for crafty news!


My lovely friend Anna had a baby about a month ago... these are the handmade gifts I gave her:


Handmade card:




Little knitted duck (did look a bit like a snowman at one point while it was in progress... but think the duck-ness got there in the end!):






A keyring with the initial of the new baby - can be hung in the nursery, or on the changing bag, etc:





And his big sister's initial:






I think they all went down well!

  6. The toy collector faces the dilemma of being labeled a geek, and some other names. But in recent years, with the boom of superhero movies, animated CGI flicks, video games, and also Comic Conventions and CosPlays, geeks are becoming an "in-thing" in the society. Yet, understanding the hobby of collecting toys still isn't easy for many. Some consider collecting toys very juvenile, as toys are most often associated with little children. Others believe toy collecting a waste of funds and time, as collectible toys often cost a lot of money. There are even some who make fun of toy collectors and their passion, just because they are different. Very few in the world truly understand the toy collector and his purpose. And likely, very few know about the great values toy collecting teaches people. خرید اسباب بازی

  7. Wishing is not a second chance at childhood nor is it about how well you take to maturity. Wishing is welcoming the sense of possibility. Wishing enables us to transcend our limitations and step out of mediocrity. Granted wishes have us leaping from our chair and straying from the world-renowned ensemble of just being human. But there is a magic to wishing. One must wish upon life. friend birthday shayari

  8. Personalized Gifts are the best gifts to express feelings towards a particular individual or to celebrate a special occasion. A personalized coffee mug, greeting card or even a simple photo frame grants a lot more pleasure than what an expensive present cannot give. Nothing helps people to remember a special day of their life just like a personalized gift does. It brings back all the emotions that were attached to a celebration or a ceremony. thanksgiving gift

  9. People love receiving gifts during occasions and celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries and birthdays. Gifts are however not limited to the common events and celebrations, but they can also be sent to express love, best wishes, gratitude and even to express sorrow feelings to bereaved. Whatever your reason for sending a gift, the distance between you and the recipient can make it very hard for you to send the tangible gifts that seem to hold more value than phone calls and e-cards. おせち 匠本舗 2021
