a handmade birthday...

A few snippets from Miss 2's Birthday yesterday. Oops, make that Miss 3!! She is a delightful kid, full of mischief, joy, humour, music, imagination, love and more. She is also strong willed, stubborn, loud and messy...hmmmm...quite a bit like me!! We are having a party next weekend, but yesterday we celebrated her actual birthday at home with the grandparents. I made her a few handmade gifts too!
 I made this dress using a vintage sheet and some opshopped fabric. Each year I have  made her a dress for her birthday, and I intend to keep the tradition going until she doesn't let me and goes for something cooler  which I'm sure will happen one day!!
 ... this year I made a matching dress for dolly too!
Mr 7 was excited!
I'm not normally a scrapbooker, but have been meaning to do this pretty much since miss 3 was born. Finally got round to it for her birthday, using mostly upcycled crafty items I had rather than "scrapbooking" stuff that seems pretty commercial to me! Both my kids have a book like this now, and I'm pretty sure my scrapbooking career is over!! Phew!
Mr. Coleman bought some flowers for Miss 3 on his way home form work. aaawww.
We made pink cupcakes!!
...and I also made and gifted this pop pom necklace for her too!

It was a lovely day, and I'm looking forward to her party next weekend too!
love Mezz xx

  11. Just ask Hillary Clinton how experience played for her ray ban wayfarers online against then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008. Come to think of it, it would be worth asking her how she ray ban sunglasses australia thinks it will play in 2016 — and doubtless many people will. And what about Jeb Bush? He has not run for president before, but his brother and father have and ray ban sunglasses online his candidacy is predicated on brand recognition and experience.
