adventures in headbands

This headband is for a grown up girl :)
Laura asked me back in June if I could make something for her to take to a music festival to keep her hair out of her face.
So when she sent me a text saying she was leaving in 2 hours I was a little surprised that I'd run out of time! Haha, typical me.
I thought I had tons of time when really my deadline had come around. Matilda and I were laying around having a post name tickle-fest, so I had to jump up and get busy!

In about an hour and a half  I'd gotten it done!
I made two of the bows detachable so that Laura had a few more options. She can wear the headband with all three, or two or just one. She can wear the bows on their own.
I prefer to have a few options, especially when I'm having one of those days when everything is too tight or clinging to the wrong spots when PJs and a tshirt are the most comfortable options!

Have fun Laura! If you'd like your own headband or one for your little lady or a little OR grown up girl that you know just get in touch :)

Bow Very Busy!

Since we last spoke I've been on holiday in Tenerife, my Mom came over from the states for a visit AND I started making again!!!
It all started with passing on a couple of bows I made for Miss Mouse that were a bit too small for her. I brought them to our toddler group. The mum that I gave them too offered me some pennies, but I said I'd rather she told people I can make bows if they wanted them. 

So, she did! In the few months since then I've been bow making mad!

A mother daughter duo!

This leopard print lovely was for a grown up girl!

Peppa Pig is super popular!

Minnie Mouse is also in high demand!

I've been having so much fun! So far everything I've made is by request, so each bow is bespoke. I'd love to make something for you! I'll ship anywhere on the globe! Just wait until you get your peepers on my ribbon collection!

We Are Busy!

She doesn't love PB&J :(

Whoopie Pies are more her thing :)

See ya later Mummy!

We've been to the zoo a lot lately and the other day we went to the Seaquarium at Rhyl which is in North Wales. Think....Myrtle Beach, maybe in the 60s. That's totally what it's like. It was windy, but pretty warm. The beach is sand and smooth stones. It was the first time Matilda has ever played with a shovel and bucket. She had a great time!
The last time we went to the zoo I brought her baby pushchair, she pushed her baby doll around at warp speed! This little Mouse of mine is stuck in fast forward!

I blinked! She's 1!

Matilda and I have spent a very special occasion in Charleston with our friends and family! 
Matilda's actual birthday is January 28th, we were traveling back to the UK on her actual birthday so what could be better than an early first birthday party!!!! 

My Birthday Baby!

Drumming with Catherine Glory & Uncle Teddy!

She loves cards, so sweet

Aunt Lindsay!

The special Hello Kitty cake that Aunt Lindsay made!

Thank you for the dress Auntie Ryssa!

Mummy's birthday girl!


Us with Aunt Hailey!
There she was only a year ago!
Our first cuddles x

  Oh how quickly the time has flown! Matilda Rose learns something new every single day. 
Her favorite thing at the moment is Peppa Pig! She sings Peppa's theme song all day long. 
She still loves Hello Kitty too though. She likes coloring but loves stickers! 
My girl LOVES babies! Baby dolls are great, but real babies - she loves them all and has to touch them and talk to them and pat them on the head. 
She is such a sweet, loving, kissy, cuddly girl and I can't get enough of her kisses. I melt into a big mushy puddle every time she throws her arms around my neck or holds my face in her tiny hands. 
She is very clever and cheeky and easily frustrated when she can't do something.
She is pushing her boundaries already! 
Mummy's little extrovert. 
Mummy's little Mouse. 
Mummy's whole world.
