Handmade Christmas

I'm thinking about having a handmade Christmas this year.

Given that money is a little tight and that i have plenty of time, it has all the markings of a special handmade Christmas :0) It's so lovely to receive a handmade gift that has taken someone time to think about and make!

With this in mind, i should get busy now! I've a few ideas... but i am keeping my cards close to my chest...!

And to encourage other people to have a handmade Christmas, i have a sale on my Emily dolly patterns, so that you too can take pride and make something special for a special little someone you might know!

For this week only! Emily dolly pattern available here

Today we had a little fun in the park, great fun letting the little one run wild in the park!

it was great teaching her to kick up leaves, who knew kicking leaves was so much fun!
Look at the speed on her in that shot, the camera nearly couldn't catch her..!

its not all fun and games though, this item is available to buy in my shop now!

Phoenix park

Today was a truly glorious autumn day, sunny and warm, all golden and yellow!

So we went off for a day trip to Phoenix Park, which for those who don't like in Dublin, is Europe's largest walled park in a city, 15 acres. It has deer living in it! and it really is in the city center! It's just lovely!

We took the opportunity to take a few shots of the capes which i will go on sale in my shop tomorrow...

It also has the zoo in it, and we where very excited to bring Poppy to see the tigers and lions and cows (yes, i know, not quite the same genre...but these are the animals she knows). She now knows a lot more!

don't these look just delicious, like sweets in a sweetie store!

I received these on Wednesday from Zipit on Etsy, in super fast time, and after i unwrapped them, and played with the free bits and ate the sweetie, i ran upstairs to play with them, only to discover.... my zipper foot had been stolen!

Yes, i believe it was Poppy. She is always stealing things and i find them months later. We lost our remote for about 2 months and then one day i found it in her toy house. Maybe i am too hasty to blame her. i blame her for everything that is missing. Yes, the zipper foot may be pushing it a bit...

very frustrating....
