Me gots some pretty post t'other day. Yessum, sure did.
It came with the message: Saw this and thought of you.
I love that saying.
Im forever seeing stuff and thinking of the person whom I most connect it with... all the time.
So when I opened the parcel and saw these lil birdies I cooed and ahhhed for ages. I lubs them. Traci, you is a diamond. A great pink, shiny and dazzling diamond. Thanks ever so xx
Which reminds me, I have a pair of earrings which I have promised to send out for ages and they are just drying off. Can't believe I overlooked that lil job... Im such a der der brain. They are coming though.... sure are coming.
Went to physio with a certain young lady tonight. Its the first proper session she has had in YEARS. The physio was so patient with Belle and assesed that she needs lots of work.
Hmmmm, you dont say.
So anyway, realising that Ellie is developing curvature of the spine, has no control over her thigh muscles, cannot stand on one leg for more than 2 seconds; the therapist sprung into action. She got Belle involved with activities that SHE felt most comfortable to do and its been recognised that she would benefit from rebound therapy. Trampolining to you and I. Well, the look on Ellies face was priceless and no, I didnt have my camera to record it. Im so pleased for Belle, its a dream come true. If you scroll back to January you will note that we had planned that 2007 was Ellies year and it sure is....... we are beside ourselves with hope and promise. The therapist has also noted that she will make some laws with the school so that they are covered (kind of like health and safety). Can you imagine how we all feel with all this support. I don't think the reality has dawned on Belle. She is easily the most "come day, go day" girly girl. Still, its just awfully exciting for us to experience this amzing chapter... keep the pages turning, I say!
Finally Ill leave you with a piccy of some flip flops I made from chipboard, chattrebox paper, ribbons, flowers and tags last year. they are being featured in this month Quick and Crafty Magazine.
(Modelled by Kiesha, Traci's daughter)
They are wearable but obviously not in the rain. Al I did was draw round my existing flipflops twice through chipboard, lined the top chipboard set in chatterbox papers, threaded ribbon through an eyelet at the toe post, tucked the ribbon underneath. Stuck the two layers together and painted the bottom. Less than an hour to make, probable 10 minutes of wearing to break. Mwahahahahahahaha
PS: Good Luck to my wubbly freind jane who has landed a dream 4 weeks working with Kelly Hoppen (interior designer extraordinaire) and good luck to Traci for tomorrows showdown at Trim Craft xx
