They have a little scoop of lavender in also, to calm and relax. I am a volunteer worker at my local village youth group and the noise of all the lovely, yet noisy children chit chattering when we have debates etc, wowser. If you are a teacher, do you get earache by any chance....
I think an apple and a little handmade card was what I gave my teachers when I was at school. Those were the days. I have really enjoyed making something for the teachers, with a little help from Miss. Poppins. I personally think nothing is as special as a handmade gift. Talking of hand making I have enjoyed making one or two pretties for my Folksy shop, I am aiming to list many new items in July for the July Jesters, though shall see how I go. I have lovely special orders that are keeping me busy so find it hard to list many new pretties. I also have the possibility of one or two exciting ventures ahead which may mean a little more crafting independence for me, which I am looking forward to. I really enjoy my crafting little business/hobby though feel I need to spread my wings a little further and find some new and exciting interests, and with Master P....excuse me whilst I grab the tissues.... soon to be at reception....sob, sob.... possibly need a plan of career action.
Here are one or two pretties I have been making.
I have also been asked to make some pretty, in a boyish way, accessories for a customers boys bedroom. I have to say, boys items I really have to think hard to make something a little different for them. The lovely lady wants a cushion, a hanging item, some bunting and little PJ case, eeek I have never made a PJ case before, please those of you who have, tell me they are easy ;0) I am on the hunt for some quirky, old fashioned style boys fabrics too so if anyone can point me in the right direction, would very much appreciate it.
I have been a very lucky girl and had some lovely pretties sent my way, and none were as pretty and practical as these oh so sweet Clothes Plasters found at Jennie Maizels beautiful website.They are super embroidered iron-fabric patches packaged in a delightful little tin. And Jennie very kindly sent me a pretty pink tin for Miss. Poppins and the blue for Master P with both having 10 high quality patches to jazz up plain clothes, bags and even shoes.
