Four year olds are hard work. Nothing is right, even if it's done exactly as asked. In view of this week swiftly being one I'd like to forget, I decided it was baking time. I found a shortbread packet mix left from Christmas. E chose the cutters. Decorating also by madam.

Also known as 'teething jewellery'.
I didn't have any of these when Ella was little. I thought only hippy mummies wore them and that didn't feel like me (I also didn't do cloth nappies and was late to baby Slings. I guess I've turned into one of those mummies after all!). This time around I have discovered a whole world of teething/fiddle Jewellery! I originally steered clear of it as I wasn't a fan of Big chunky wooden beads, but now I have found silicone bead designs I have a quite a collection!
The two bangles, cat and star are from Gumigem, and this was the first company I discovered. I loved that they did more statement piece jewellery, and they have designs suitable for men too!
The two other necklaces were from a WAHM ( work at home mum) company called Coastal Path Creations, found on etsy. The lovely Stef created the yellow and pearl especially for me.
Have a search on Facebook or etsy for 'teething jewellery' and you'll be amazed what is out there!

I saw this challenge linked in a facebook group: write 30 letter in 39 days. I love writing letters, so I decided to apply for a kit. It's sponsored by www.eggpress.com and hellolucky, and you get this beautiful kit of letterpress cards. US applicants also received a gellyroll pen. I can't wait to get writing! You can also follow the IG tag #write_on

As usual, Sian at fromhighinthesky does a Memorandum Monday; something you have learned. And this is mine.
I have recently discovered the world of Starbucks Gift Card collecting. It's a dangerous thing as there are so many cards out there! There are whole Facebook groups dedicated to swapping cards. I shouldn't but I can't help myself....
