Lillia's getting crafty

My lovely Lillia has never really been much into crafts or colouring, she has always preferred to be sorting her toys into boxes or taking things apart and putting them back together again.  But recently she has started to enjoy the craftier side of life.  She has taken to colouring, cutting, sticking, drawing, stamping.  She takes more of an interest in the things I am making and how.

For mother's day we got a plain ceramic vase and some ceramic markers and she created a beautiful present for my mum, her granny...

On one side it is daytime in the garden and on the other it is "me and granny having a holloween party at night"...

So cute!  I want one for me so I will probably be making a return journey to Hobbycraft this week for another vase.

At school she designed her own commemorative mug for the Royal Wedding.  This is so totally adorable!  It is "the prince and princess and their wedding things"...

We have many of these for her many grandparents of course, and I have been enjoying my morning cup of tea out of mine every morning..when Mr Snipsnaphappy isn't using it that is.

It has been a hectic time here in the snipsnaphappy household lately. What with the whirlwind arrival of baby Phoebe, not to mention all the post-natal depression, family get-togethers, birthdays, end-of-term discos etc, life leaves litle time for sitting down at all. I have been crafting away though and I do have plenty to share (more of the Big Happy blanket to be revealed this week!), it's just the time it takes to photograph my crafted goodies and upload those photographs to the ol' blog. So I find myself asking the question - do I continue to blog...or not? It is blooming time consuming after all and time is something that I am pretty short of most of I'll be going back to work in June so time will be even more precious.

I love my blog, I love writing it and I love the record of life it provides for my children in the future. But I am not sure how much it really offers to the wider world, and I would dearly like it to offer something even a little valuable. Hmmm, food for thought anyway, but not right now...right now I am having a glass of wine and preparing for a three week Easter break. Blimey! Wish me luck...


  1. I always go back and forth about blogging. I used to blog years ago about my life in general, then suddenly got so sick of it that I just quit and destroyed it all. It was very hesitantly that I got back into it, but there are still days.... :)

  2. I love these! Is there anything better than childrens darwings? :)

  3. I am so in the same place re blogging but then wonder how I'd feel if I didn't have it any more. I don't know what the answer is but I do know that I don't want you to stop blogging. I would really miss seeing and hearing what you're up too xxx

  4. I've been on a 2 week break far away from any Wi-Fi so my blog has been a bit neglected. I like catching up with everyone's latest news, it's like having a coffee morning with the girls without leaving the house (great when I've been tied to the house with my Bubba)So dont give it up. Little and often is of value over here!

  5. how lovely are they?! really sweet :) hope you're well! x


I love to hear from my readers so please drop me a note :)
