Birthday Boy

June 30th 004

Happy 10th Birthday James – who woke up every 1/2 hour from 4am onwards asking “Can I open my presents now?”. He was so excited & thankful to get some more DS games, Lego & books, and was happy that Mum had finally made him this…

He shares a birthday with our friend Sammy, who is also 10 today. Her Mum Kathryn asked me to create her a bag, she chose the fabric and this is the end result.

Its a reversible denim and fabric bag, about 2/3’s the size of my usual bags. I have made her a matching fabric covered notebook with the lining fabric which is ‘Zen Blossoms’ by Michael Miller.

I have been borrowing some more fabulous crafty reading from the library again, take a look at some of these inspirational books.

The chocolate cake is in the oven and the birthday boy has chosen meatballs and spaghetti for dinner tonight. He will be having a party on Friday with 6 boys, pizza making with Dad and a bouncy castle!

With Love

What a coincidence gorgeous neice Maddie is also turning 10 today!
James looks thrilled to bits, I'm so glad he loved his vest, and it sounds like he had a wonderful day all round :) Not long until another birthday in your house ;)

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES, Man how time flies, I remember when we baby sat you for your mum and dad while they went out for a curry when we were visiting them in Melbourne just like it was yesterday. You are growing up to be a very handsome boy.
Enjoy your special day! xx
PS give that gorgeous mum of yours a big hug for me, and Kaleb and Talia say hi.
