mother’s day

May 16th, 2012|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , |8 Comments

I had a really beautiful Mother’s day this past Sunday.We didn’t really have anything planned, which was exactly what I wanted. I thought a nice and slow morning where you eat breakfast leisurely without rushing somewhere would be bliss. I was woken up {after a little sleep in} with cuddles, snuggles and kisses from my two beautiful kiddos. I was given handmade cards, drawings and flowers from them both and Noah had made a very cute frame and photo at school for the fridge. Noah answered the ‘all about my mum’ printable and it made me […]

mother’s day gift for my kiddos

May 11th, 2012|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , , , |9 Comments

I’ve had a few sobering experiences these past few weeks. Some reminders that life is so very special. That it is a gift that can so easily be taken for granted. That we only have so much time here, and sometimes people leave too soon. And some have to go through amazing hardships just to be here. Just to get through the day to see a tomorrow.I should know this. I have watched suffering. I have seen hardship. My own Mum has been suffering for 17 years. Yet still I seem to sometimes need […]

{printable} Mother’s Day Bookmarks

May 3rd, 2012|Categories: printables|Tags: |2 Comments

This is another cute little gift idea that is great for Mother’s Day. :o}There is room on the bookmarks to add some cute drawings or thumbprint art or even glitter, stickers or little photos. You can do them up how ever you like and they make a great little thoughtful and personal and not to mention useful gift :o}You can punch a hole up the top of them and add some pretty ribbon. You can laminate them (they’ll last longer) or not – it’s up to you :o}I haven’t got any photos of them […]

{printable} mother’s day flower pot template

April 26th, 2012|Categories: crafts, printables|Tags: |5 Comments

The first of the Mother’s Day printables is here today! 
 

 
 
They come in two sizes, one flower pot per A4 page, and 2 flower pots per A4 page, making them A5 in size. The smaller ones are great for little kids if you are doing handprints! Chloe’s fit perfectly on the A5, but Noah’s handprint was too big and he needed the A4 size. 

 
 
We decided to do paper handprint cutouts and tissue paper flowers. But the possibilities are endless with this template, as it has plenty of room to be creative! You could have the kids […]

being a mother

May 8th, 2011|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , |7 Comments

Growing up I had career aspirations and dreams. I wanted to be a teacher, event manager or marine biologist. I started studying to be a teacher and changed my mind, and moved onto event management. This suited me better, but the course was not exactly what I was after, so I shifted direction and took up media and photography. I gave up on the idea of being a marine biologist when I learnt I’d have to dissect marine animals. Yeah, pretty much crushed that dream for me.But the moment I became a mother, my […]

Mother’s Day Printables

May 2nd, 2011|Categories: printables|Tags: |3 Comments

I have had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Jade from Super Organiser Mum on these Mother’s Day printables. We got to talking about Mother’s Day and Jade had some great ideas and so together we set about creating these for you to enjoy with your child, or to hand over to someone else to do with your kiddos for you.They are designed to be quite simple, but still meaningful. I’m sure you will cherish the end product for a long time.Over the weekend my husband did these with our little guy for […]
