I have made some headway this weekend and today.
This is the stressed parent hamper for my brother in law. A mug, coffee, choccy, alcohol and lottery ticket.
And a close up of the poem.
The same for sister in law but with red alcohol. I gave her a hamper last year with a lottery ticket and she won £8 so hopefully this year they will win more. :D
I have made journal jars for my eldest 2 children. My oldest is 7 and is top of his class. My daughter is 5 and is writing at a year 2 level (well, she was a few months ago) so I want to encourage them as my son hates writing and even though my daughter likes to write, I dont want her getting bored. Here are the journal jars. I bought the books from the pound shop and decorated my daughters. I put their photos on the books as well to make them more personal.
I found a sale in New Look online at the weekend. I bought my daughter a dress. Its a black and white strappy party dress. I thought she could wear it for new year but was worried she may be cold. So I made this shrug for her yesterday. Its the same wool as her scarf and hat set so I know she likes it, and I lined it with a fleece scarf that I bought to make her a balaclava. I did make her try it on this morning and it fits and she loves it, although is under strict instruction to forget she saw it. lol. But now she wants a headband to match.
Thankfully I have finished my daughters minion today. Had to have pink overalls, although the eyes are a tad to big. But it means tomorrow I can have a go at some sort of hair thing for my daughter.
i hope you like my hampers/makes. I do actually feel like I can get finished for Chirstmas on time. I wrapped alot of presents today and am hoping to finish them tomorrow as well as my sisters hamper and hubbys sweetie hamper. :D
See you soon.
