It's someone's birthday on Saturday.

My little Bella Primrose is all grown up and turning 2, and I know it's what everyone says but it really has gone fast! 

I thought I'd freshen up her bedroom a little, I made some sweet little flowers to put on her wall:

I made a rather smug looking little rabbit because we now have a pet rabbit called Posie and Bella is obsessed with rabbits! 

Last year around Bella's first birthday I made a print called 'Bella likes...' with all the stuff she liked doing on it. The plan is to update this every year and this is her new one!

'Poudu' is what she calls Posie and we love it so much, she makes it sound so french!! 

Here she is, my little beauty, almost two. Sigh, I just love her!!

shiny and new

So I've given the blog a bit of a makeover.

For about a year at least I've not really felt like i knew how to make the blog my own but after having a proper go at tweaking bits here and there i have finally created a blog that feels like me! To be honest it's all been a bit of a headache and I even started a new blog somewhere else because I thought it might be easier to customise with a whole different blog company but it niggled me to abandon my little blog here so I decided to knuckle down and I think I finally understand lots of the different things I can do with it to make it my own!

And my aim is to change the header (the thing at the top) as and when I feel like it because I get bored very quickly! This rabbit at the top is a little nod to Easter. Now I know Easter isn't all about rabbits but I didn't really want to draw Jesus!

One day, one day, I will regularly update this blog and work really hard at getting it off the ground. But for now, this will do. But thank you, you faithful few who actually read this and stick with it, it means a lot!

DIY: little book tutorial

Today was rainy and grey and me and Bella needed something to amuse us. So we made little books to draw and colour in and i thought that maybe some of you would like to do the same so here is a tutorial in 10 easy steps that i have made for your DIY pleasure! 

It really is great, kids just love small things and you can make a whole set of them...
