Counting down

We’re currently counting down until Little Sis’ first birthday. I’m not sure where the year has gone, it’s been fun but not without it’s difficulties. Her cheeky little smile seems to have got me through the worst of the sleepless nights and days of screaming. Yes, my child is not perfect and has only just started sleeping through without waking!

So far, the handmade birthday card has been sent in to CBeebies, 6 weeks early as requested.

We’ve had a dry run with making Peppa Pig biscuits. The final version were flooded with pink icing but I forgot to photograph them.

The presents have been bought and a few personalised (Peppa Pig) cards made.

You may notice there’s a bit of a theme going on. I’m sure her brother didn’t have any favourites at this age but she absolutely adores Peppa Pig. If she hears the theme tune she’ll swivel round and watch transfixed!

I’ve spent the last few nights working on a Blurb photo book for her first year. I was contacted a while ago but couldn’t think of what kind of photo book to make. But then I remembered the toddlers’ half-finished birthday book I’ve been making myself. I never seem to have the time to finish it so I thought a photo book would be brilliant. The only difficulty has been picking which photos to include.

So far it’s been quite simple to upload my photos and make a layout of each page using BookSmart. I’ll write a bit more about it when I have the finished book but if you want to try it for yourself I have a great discount code which will give you 20% off – just use the code NOEL20 when you check out.
