Being creative 6 years ago....


6 Years ago yesterday (the 25th) this little guy arrived on the scene!
He had black hair that soon turned a wierd gingery colour, then blonde....

He was as cute as a button!
- someone stopped me in the street once and said "if that's the way your kids turn out you should have a lot more"-
....Mmmm, no, two is enough for me....
I made the outfit he has on in this photo which was taken on his 1st birthday. Red is still his favourite colour.
He is still as cute as a button regardless of the "skull" T-shirt he had to have for his birthday...

What do you do when you ask a 5 year old,
"What would you like for your birthday?" and he says
"um..a skull T-shirt and a Tamagotchi hee hee"
I picked the "best" one I could find. What is it with boys clothes and skulls?
When I went to find this "skull T-shirt" there was an endless supply of them and most of them were really awful!!
I managed to find one that was a bit like a pirate T-shirt - at least that is what I tell myself!!

And I have been given an award by Tatania of "Little Mysteries", isn't it pretty?

I shall have to do all of my "passing on" of awards in another post - I am making a bag for a lady in Italy today so I had better remove myself from the computer and get cracking!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone, Kathryn. XX

Skull shirts are all the rage here too! Some of them are kind of scary but the kids wearing them are still sweet. (I teach 11 and 12 year olds.) Your son IS cute as a button.
