Summer sun and dandelions!!

Well the weather has been fabulous and we have been outside for as much of the day as possible! This does not help me be creative but it is fab to spend so much time with my monster and enjoy the fresh air!!

His favourite things to do at the moment are feed the ducks, this is not my favourite as we get swarmed by geese and swans and pigeons and seagulls, and I then spend the next half an hour trying to avoid being pecked and pooped on The things we do for our kids enjoyment though hey!

He also has found the joy that is dandelions and blowing all the seeds away, its the cutest thing watching him try and figure out how to blow instead of suck and then not being able to blow hard enough to get the seeds to fly away. He hasnt quite got the hang of counting so its a dandelion clock, he counts 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,10 and it takes him about a 100 blows to clear the thing so I wouldnt call it accurate time keeping by any means but he likes it!!

Simple things that we take for granted as adults absolutely fascinate children and its not until you spend time with one that you learn to appreciate them again. They are constantly learning and changing and absorbing information and such a fast rate, I wish I could still take things in at the same rate, it would make life a lot easier sometimes!!

My First Blog Milestone!!!

Well I have neglected my blog yet again, motivation has been a key this last week or 2 and I have been consumed by Potty training and business cards etc etc. So it was to my delight that I looked at my blog this morning and realised I now had 54 followers!! 50 was a milestone that I wanted to hit with my blog and I did wonder if I would ever make it as I haven't posted nearly as much as I wanted!! So hello to all my lovely followers, I love comments and ideas so please feel free to post lots on here!

Sooooo with that in mind keep your eyes peeled for my first ever giveaway that I will start next week. I hope to run it for a whole week so you will have plenty of time to enter and pass it on to any friends.

With the giveaway in mind, what kind of prizes would you all be interested in? A set prize? A gift certificate? A prize from somewhere else? Fabric? Please leave a comment and let me know!

They are here!!!

Yes my Moo cards have arrived!! If any of your are fans on of my facebook page you will know that I ordered some last week and was very very excited about getting them!! Well they arrived this morning and I can safely say that I am really chuffed with how they have turned out. They are printed on gorgeous card, nice and thick and not too shiny. They look really good, I will definitely be ordering some more and probably some stickers and mini moo cards aswell!!
Im glad I finally went through and ordered some because ive been thinking about it for weeks and its not till you see them in the flesh that you realise firstly how pants my home printed ones are and secondly exactly what photos sell your items best in that kind of space. I will definitely be spending more time choosing my photos next time as there are a few cards that im not so keen on because the picture looks a bit odd in the space.
Check them out and let me know what you think:

The problem I now have is what to keep them in!!! So I had a quick browse and check out some of these fab Business Card holders I found:

For those that Want to make one themselves:
