I just love the effort that schools and preschools make for Mothers Day and my kids were so excited this morning to give me their cards. They spent the morning doing more drawings for me, so very sweet. What I love most is what they think makes you special, its all so simple, yet it makes every day of hell worthwhile (and gawd there are so many!). I also received the most gorgeous Dendrobium Orchid, it smells heavenly and its now another plant to add to my wonderful indoor garden. Thanks today has to go to a special hubby who took control and even cooked me a wonderful Morocan lamb meal (one of my fave's). It was fairly entertaining to watch from the side whilst crafting as he desperately rummaged through the spice rack trying to find the coriander and cumin seeds, not having the fogiest clue what either of these look like. When I made the comment that cumin seeds looked like fennel seeds I enjoyed a quiet inward giggle knowing that I wasnt being very helpful at all.
My wish for today was to have some time where I can get some stuff done without the usual demands of the kids (my list is forever growing and time is always scarce). We have a birthday party looming and I always get a bit carried away with these things. I just love kids parties and I normally use the opportunity to find some crafty things to do. So for this year we are having a Fairy Princess Party and oh boy am I in trouble!!! There is so much I want to make and so little time (especially with being a way for Easter hols too). Offcourse its pink and girly - oh how very lovely and exciting!! The only problem offcourse is that my crochet project is pretty much on hold for now (boo!) and I am already feeling the loss.
I feel somehow satisfied that I have almost finished the majority of the invites, but now await some more ribbon and a gold pen in order to complete the project. I promise to show and share when its finished. In the meantime here is a little glimpse.
