birthdays,birthdays and more birthdays.

August is a full on month for birthdays around here we have 5 from the family and about the same with friends.

so today i went out to lunch with a few friends for 3 of the girls birthdays.
and may i add had a great time.

i figured this morning i couldnt go empty handed so i quickly whipped up these.

handy little zippered purses, they were so easy i am planning a few more.

i love the fact that they are versatile and practical but simple.

cookies and giggles

Yesterday afternoon the boys went to the footy with friends and the friends daughter stayed with Ainsley and I.

it was so nice to have an older girl for Ainsley to play with with no boys to interupt the girly giggles, and to be a girl that ainsley knows well but doesnt get one on one time with.

They had so much fun.

we baked some cookies, played with dolls made a slide with a blow up materess and my fabric stash lol

Milly got me a cookie and this is the one i got.

Just to put it in comparrison to what the girls got to eat.

Mr Tooheys Tortoise

Byron's teacher this year is great and this week we have parents night so i wanted to give him a appreciation gift.
I had no idea at 1st and the Eb ladies gave me some great idea but it came to me yesterday that he needs a door stop as the door is currently being held open by a brick.
I then found out today that his favourite animal is the tortoise.

this is what i came up with.

he has a face and i will take a daylight pic tomorrow so you can see it cause he is cute hehe.
Byron is working on a card and inside it will say.

"A special teacher opens the door to life long learning and possibilities thank you for inspiring those doors to open.
Please accept this gift so doors can continue to open for you.
you are a terrific teacher and your efforts are appreciated."
or something along those lines.

thank you 'Carebear83' for your words they have helped.

summer outfits

I bought this pattern last year but didnt get to making it up. (McCalls M5615)
It is a friends 5th birthday party this week end and she has asked for ballet slippers, so of course she is getting jiffies from us but i couldnt just wrap a pair of boring looking shoes.

so i got the pattern out and now she is getting whole outfit hehe

i am almost finished one for Ainlsey just needs to be hemmedwell this blue top turned out a tad short
so i added 2 more tiers and turned it into a dress
had this been the plan from the beginning i would have made the gathering under the bust cream but hey it twirls and thats all that counts hehe
