So we’re into the penultimate week of the summer holidays and I’ve pretty much run out of things to do with my darling daughter.
We’ve had the big summer holiday, been to the beach, had a picnic in the park, baked, stamped, scrapbooked, painted plates, decorated every surface in the house, bowled, visited friends and family, watched endless ‘My Friends Tigger and Pooh’, birdspotted from the playhouse pretending it’s a hide, you name it and we’ve done it.
I’m trying to make sure that every activity is either free or less than £5. I’m going to surf for more ideas this afternoon and check out Amanda Soule’s fabulous ‘The Creative Family’ for inspiration which I bought in Vancouver. That woman is a wonder, I really don’t know how she does it? Check out her blog as well, as you can tell she’s one of my heroes!
However last week Miss L and I were surfing and I was looking at Moo for Violet Posy business cards (and Christmas cards but shhhh don’t tell her that!) and Miss L noticed the stickers. It seems that all small girls are obsessed with them 🙂 But these are cool, you can link to your Flickr, Facebook, Livejournal, Etsy whatever account and the photos from that account made into stickers.
Miss L chose all her favourite pictures from holiday and of the dog, friends, the garden and had them made into stickers. This morning these little beauties arrived and they are soooo cool!
In fact they are so nice Miss L is refusing to stick them on anything and is carrying them around like a security blanket. But I suspect they are going to end up all over the house – I can’t wait 🙂 They have made a bored little girl very happy.
