Returning back to routine today, J went back to work, the Little Peeps went back to school and the Kidlett and I went off to sing and bash drums at Musical Tots. It was good. I do enjoy routine, more than I like to admit.
This afternoon, I had a little time to myself :: Mummy Playtime. I had a good smooch with my new soft embroidery threads, purchased yesterday so that I may continue my obsession with making Mini Bunting.
Do you like the colours? I had J and the LP waiting for me in the car, so I picked these out in about 30 second flat. Yanked them off their hooks, pooled them together in my hands, rushed to the till, paid for them, made a little small talk with the shop lady whom I taught to crochet a few years ago, and ran out the door. J still managed to raise his eyebrows, honestly, I swear I must've only been about five minutes.
I chose quite a few pinky colours as I've an idea to crochet some mini roses. Think sweet mini bunting flags interspersed with mini crochet roses. Ooooooooooooooooooh!!
Something else caught my eye this afternoon during Playtime too. This envelope that arrived a few weeks ago all the way from Malaysia, sitting patiently on my desk, waiting for my Full Attention.
Want to see the Malaysian contents?
It's a sticker set. Found and purchased on Etsy when I was having a little gush over all things Washi Tape.
Just a minute though...lets just nip over to the sofa and make sure Little B is still sweetly in the land of nod............
........ahh yes, sleeping soundly, snoring gently and making little grunty animal noises. Too cute for words.
Right then, it's safe to carry on with my Playtime, uninterrupted.
Lets open up the packet shall we?
Twenty five little playing-card sized sticker sheets, don't you just love little things like this? Takes me right back to my childhood, makes me think I am eight years old again. Such joy to be had with stickers and cutesy stationary products!
Can you see that each sticker sheet is pre cut? There are circles at one end, then the rest is cut into two different width strips.
You know what I'm going to do with the strips don't you?
Thread. Stickers. Scissors.
Peal, fold, stick, snip, love.
