Go me!

Not only is this my third post in a week, but  I actually managed some scrapbooking time! Both layouts primarily use stuff from the latest crafty templates quirky kit lite, with the addition of a few stickers of varying styles - I do like a nice sticker!

Also, my husband and I have a new nephew. He was 4 weeks early so is teeny tiny, and is called Finnick. We haven't met him yet but will do tomorrow.

In which Hey Duggee meets postmodernism

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.

Fiddle necklaces

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; search for her on Facebook. 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!

Slowly slowly

Last week the latest kit from crafty templates arrived, and it timed perfectly with me having photos to scrap and time! So after pulling it all out, moving it around, seeing if I could add any of my own bits and pieces, I came up with this.

Woe is me etc etc

Today I had my final wisdom teeth out. This is not a sympathy post. This is a 'look at that bruising' post. And it's only been 6 hours!! My face will look horrific tomorrow!
