hello.

Well how did that happen? All of a sudden it’s May!
I know I haven’t been posting on the blog very much at all these past few months. I have also been questioning whether to continue with a little delightful, or if it’s time to say good-bye. As the bills rolled in for web hosting and re-regestering my domain name,  I felt that might be a good time to call it quits, but as their deadlines loomed closer I didn’t quite feel ready to let it all go as I really have been missing this space, […]

{printable} easter gift tags & a cute mason jar gift idea

Well hello! 
I can’t believe we are a week away from Easter. Where has the time gone?? This year is flying by way too fast, and I know I have been neglecting my little blog BIG TIME. 
I made these up the other day to tie on to the mason jar gifts we made for teachers and friends and I thought I’d share them with you too, as they’re really useful for anything you can think of this Easter! 
These are Typo mason jars, a little bit of shredded tissue paper, some cute little speckled chocolate eggs […]

Hand and Footprint Reindeers

I am not sure how or why this isn’t already on my blog – because ever since Noah was two we have been making these hand and footprint reindeer and they are one of my all time favourite Christmas activities! 
They’re also super easy, you just need some brown paper (I use two shades) and some googly eyes (you can also just draw the eyes on!). Some red marker or glitter glue for the red Rudolph nose and some glue or tape. 
Trace your kiddos foot on a piece of paper and cut out. If using […]

{printable} My Christmas Keepsake Series 2014

Hello!! Thank you to all of you that have been asking about these. I almost almost didn’t put them up! It has been so wonderful to hear that some of you do these religiously every year with your children and that you look forward to them! 

My kiddos and I do these every year and it has been such a joy to be able to go through past years pages and see how they’ve grown and changed. Of course this year Owen is a little young but we still completed a handprint page for him […]

{giveaway} :: Amazing toys from Tiger Tribe

It is very nearly time for school holidays and I tell you what, I’m excited! I love having a break from the lunch boxes and laundry and school drop off and pick up everyday and most of all just love having the kids home for some much needed down time. 
Christmas holidays for us almost always involves travel of some sort to see family and so I like to make sure that the kids have plenty of non-screen toys to play with both on our journey and while we’re away from home. That is where Tiger […]

{giveaway} :: dear little mailbox

Holly, a mum of 2 beautiful girls, wanted to inspire children to imagine, create, learn and love and that is exactly what she does through her absolutely gorgeous goodies from Dear Little Designs. Her gorgeous little mailboxes and letter boxes inspire children to write to friends, family, Santa or little fairy friends. And the new Dear Little Diary and Treasure Box sets give children a little safe place of their own for keeping special trinkets and memories. 
There is nothing better than encouraging imagination, and I think these cute little Mailboxes could help us create a little bit of […]

{christmas} december :: week one

It’s no secret that I LOVE Christmas, and for us, it’s a whole month of Christmas fun. Many of you have been asking me about what we’ve been up to, so I thought I’d share a weekly recap!
What a week! I can’t believe the first week of December has been and gone already! It was a super crazy busy one for us, with Nativity plays and Christmas parties, a couple of appointments, assemblies at school, birthday parties and a fun morning at the movies. 
Our cute little elf Peppermint was pretty easy going for his […]

I wanted to share with […]

Give Good this Christmas with UNICEF Inspired Gifts

This post is brought to you in collaboration with UNICEF
  
Growing up in Asia opened my eyes to a world that seems so far away from life here in Australia. On our daily drive to school it was not unusual to see people begging in the streets, or to see children selling what ever they could to earn a little money for some food. For many families, schooling and health care are financially out of reach and so their children never get the opportunity to better their life through education and families would suffer immensely without the […]
