The Nativity Collection by Robert J. Morgan

This book houses a small collection of short stories, accompanied by photos, that are centred around Christmas, however they may surprise you with their untraditional Christmas content. A stolen car, a last minute purchase at the end of an unhappy honeymoon, and young boy snowbound with his sickly grandfather are just some of the scenarios you’ll find.

I read this book out loud to my 2 young children while they were playing and I enjoyed the fact they were long enough to entertain them for a little while, but not too long as to become chore some. However my children didn’t find the pictures included very interesting or relevant to the stories. I thought the stories themselves were lovely and send out a lovely message of what Christmas should be about, rather than the over commercialised and over indulgent holiday it has become. I’d recommend the book to anyone who loves Christmas or would like to read some Christmas stories to their children that contain the true spirit of Christmas. It would also make a lovely gift book!

Starry starry night!

I made another washer necklace the other day and quite enjoyed all the stars!

Knitted Hairband

It's been ages since I posted about any personal crafts, mainly cause I don't have much time to do any of them at the moment lol

I thought I'd share this though, just a plain and simple knitted hair band. I made this just after she was born during the first wonderful week I spent cuddling her in bed...it turned out a bit big for her back then but now finally fits.

I want to try my hand at a crochet hairband sometime, but for now here's the one I already made

2 Little Love Birds

Market Day!

I had a stall at a lovely little market this last weekend. It was held by a Waldorf school and really had such a nice relaxed vibe to it.

The only pity was that there were so many lovely stalls I spent all my money :)

A few stalls with the school house behind them

Kiddies Knives!!!

I've had lots of enquiries about knives to go with my kid's cutlery sets, but until now I haven't managed to source children's knives in the quantities I need.
Today though I happened upon these whilst shopping and though they would work nicely, they are "officially" a pate knife but if you won't tell neither will I ;)

Size wise I think they are a perfect fit with the fork & spoon, they are totally blunt, so completely child friendly, and are also stainless steel, dishwashable etc.

The price for a knife, fork & spoon set is a R105 each.

If you're interested please let me know as soon as possible, stocks are limited!

You can contact me through my website, whose address is at the top of the page :)

Things are slowly but surely coming together, not only do I have my very own business cards but phase 1 of my website been completed (DH is busy with phase 2 which will allow me to control the content myself and will have much more information & products etc).



Roll out the champagne, it's time to celebrate :)

I'm very happy with the site, I do think he's done a wonderful job of my top priority which was "Please just make it pretty.."

I'd love to hear your comments on the site if you're willing to share, good and bad feedback welcome, we'd like to improve the site where we can.

And cause I can, here's a pic of my cards
