#IngredientSpotlight: Alkanet Root⁠ ⁠ Alkanet Root is also called dyer’s alkanet or bugloss, it is a pretty plant covered in sky blue bugle-shaped flowers. Alkanet is a member of the borage family and originates in the Mediterranean where it prefers full sun and dry soil. The roots produce a brilliant red napthoquinone compound called shikonin, which is soluble in oil, but not water. At Anointment, we use it to colour our Lavender Soap.⁠ ⁠ Alkanet root is infused in the olive oil used in our soap making process. In the oil, it creates a bright crimson colour. Once the (very alkaline) lye mixture is added, the colour changes from crimson to blue, eventually lightening to purple or mauve colour as the soap cures and is exposed to air.

I wish we had used cloth nappies with Caspian. I wish we had because we would have saved so much money. The entire cost all his disposables! Approx $4000 😶 I wish we had because knowing that all those nappies are still sitting in landfill and will be for the next five + generations makes me feel pretty gross. I wish we had but we didn't and not because we are crap human beings but because disposables are the norm and were even more so four years ago. We didn't really think about the alternative because we barely saw it. That's why I love seeing all these cloth nappies on here! If you have friends that are expecting, share cloth accounts with them so they get to see people using reusables and realise they aren't like they were 30 years ago! Also, swipe for the look of absolute sibling love 🥰 #makeclothmainstream

This is the smell of summer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Elderflower is abundant this time of year, and it's a perfect beginner plant for new foragers (like me!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You'll see it growing on small elder trees, springing up in little creamy white clusters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the best thing to do with it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Make elderflower cordial! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My grandma's recipe is up on the blog now, and it's totally wonderful.

♡♡♡ We've been a bit quiet this week. This little one badly burnt her finger and ended up in surgery last weekend. Since being home we've been mainly binge watching in the night garden and prescribing lots of cuddles. We might be a bit quiet whilst we get back to normal both physically and mentally. #mum #motherhood #motherhoodandme #motherhoodunplugged #discoverunder2k #motherhoodisdarling #motherhoodismagic #motherhoodishard #babygirl #motherhoodjourney #mothersphotography #selfisolation #socialdistancing #socialdistancingsaveslives #socialdistancingwithkids #socialdistancingwithdogs #sustainable #sustainablemum #eco #wastefree #love #18months #ecomama #slowmotherhood #greenparenting #lowwasteliving #ecoparenting #slowliving #ecofriendlyliving

🐝 @peachibaby_ 🐝 . . These are one of our go to nappies for reliability and I’ve been eyeing this print up for a while but I missed out as I wasn’t quick enough. But Rosie over at @peachibaby_ had a little restock a couple of weeks ago and the amazing @clothbummumm managed to secure me one of these 😍 . . Together with a few cloth bum mums we did an order all together as you can get 10% off for 6 nappies or 15% for 12. This is great if you are wanting to get started, or just can’t get enough of these lovely prints! . . #makeclothmainstream #clothnappies #clothbummum #clothbum #makelaundrynotlandfill #mamasthatfluff #giveclothago #modernclothnappies #sustainable #ecoliving #ecomama #ecoparenting #slowliving #newtocloth #zerowaste #ditchthedisposables #clothmadesimple #clothnappyaddict #fluffbummama #realnappies #discoverunder1k #clothbum #crunchymum #noplanetb #refusereducereuserecycle #ecobaby #zerowastegoals #earthfriendly #lowwasteliving #clothnappybum #clothiscute

This week’s @theeconomist is calling policy makers to recognise: “The pandemic both revels the size of the challenge ahead and also created a unique chance to each government policies that steer the economy away from carbon at a lower financial, social and political cost than might have otherwise been the case”. Who else will be reading with great interest and a ping of hope? The second picture is of happy bumble bees in my garden. Hope they make you as happy as make me 🌈

♻️🌍🌊🐠 How on Earth did we end up with this “rubbish” idea?! It all started when our little girl (Mila) saw a photo of a seahorse carrying a cotton bud. She pointed to it and shouted suspiciously, "What's the seahorsey carrying and why?". With heavy hearts we explained to her the sad truth about the seahorse and its plastic polluted home (c. 8 million tons of plastic floating in the ocean). 🌊 She told us that that made her sad, and you know what? She's not the only one. As you read this there is currently more microplastic in the oceans than there are stars in the Milky Way! If you find this deeply concerning, just like us, you are probably also frustrated by the sheer volume of plastic toy's in our children's rooms. Well we've decided to do something about it. And so Seahorsey was born. Our products are co-designed with our children (Mila & Lola), providing a touch of childlike imagination to everything we do. Sustainability is at the heart of our philosophy. Each and every Seahorsey product is not only intended to bring joy to our little ones, but to also help clean up our world. If you’ve got this far you obviously care as well, so please follow us and join us on our journey. #zerowaste #zerowastehome #zerowastelife #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteliving #ecolife #environmentallyfriendly #saveourplanet #savetheoceans #liveclean #recycle #green #environment #organic #sustainable #bethechange #sustainability #ecolifestyle #protectearth #ecomum #ecodad #ecoparenting #ecokids #greentoys #ecobags #ecostyle #happyplayhappyplanet #seahorsey #reuse #oceanplasticsucks

[Eco Mum Hacks] When I fell pregnant I had this sudden shift of priorities in my life, and one that stood out to me the most was to live more sustainably and ethically to make the earth a better place for my little ones to grow up in. Ive been very spoilt with nature growing up in the North Coast of Northern Ireland and the thought of our kids not being able to enjoy a beach without tonnes of plastic bottles taking over the view really broke my heart. By using cloth nappies I will be saving an estimate of 1000 nappies, per year, per child ending up in landfill. Thats a lot of nappies. Not to mention that these feel SO SOFT and comfortable and are much more absorbant (and hopefully leak proof) than disposables, and come free of all the nasties that some disposables leak onto our precious little ones skin . . . It takes 200 to 500 years for a disposable nappy to decompose, meaning the nappies I use on my children will still be on the planet when their own great grand childrens great grandchildren are changing nappies. Madness! The production of disposables uses 3.5 times more energy and 8.3 times more non-renewable resources to make. Madness. . . . I spent little over £200 (a 5 month disposable supply) to create a stash of these beautiful cloth nappies, liners, boosters and cotton inserts - and they will last me and my baby for years. . . . P.S im not naive to the fact that cloth nappies arent for everyone, and it will definitely take me some time to get into the groove of everything - but im determined to reduce my impact :) . . . Photo credit to @awiseroselife - thanks for choosing the exact same ones as me and letting me use your pic when I was too tired to take my own :) #littlezandbloomz #xsummeriscomingx

15 followers away from 1,000. You know what’s weird? I’ve had 1,000 before. I used to have over 1,200! So... what happened?⁣ ⁣ Sasha happened. ⁣ ⁣ I took a break from Instagram in August 2018. I had just found out I was pregnant and was struggling with a lot of health issues. It was too overwhelming and the pressure to keep up was too much. I deleted my app and logged off.⁣ ⁣ I came back a few months after Sasha was born and shared a captionless photo of me breastfeeding and the followers dropped like flies. I lost over 300. Turns out the people following me were used to seeing me as an object for their desire rather than a multi-faceted human, capable of multiple roles (including a mother!). ⁣ ⁣ I’ve archived all my old photos. They don’t reflect me anymore. They were a show that I put on to attract followers. Seductive images that only existed to increase that stupid little number at the top of my profile. ⁣Swipe to see a “before.” ⁣ These days I value the followers I have. We’re part of a community and we’re working together to make the world a better place. I’m so thankful to be on this journey with all of you and I can’t wait to see where we go next.

Se tutti i bambini nati in Italia nel 2017 avessero sostituito un solo pannolino lavabile al giorno all’usa e getta avremmo avuto in tre anni... 501.675.345 pannolini in meno da smaltire nelle nostre discariche, nei nostri mari, nei nostri terreni. Con tutto ciò che ne consegue per la nostra salute e di quella dei nostri culotti. Niente mi è venuta troppa amarezza nello scrivere questo post 😔 C’è sempre una buona ragione per utilizzare i pannolini lavabili. #consapevolezza #reasonwise #ecologesti #thereisnoplanetb

COUNTRY GIRL🍃💚 . I'm a real country girl at heart. I grew up in Dorset and am always happiest surrounded by greenery. This can make living in London pretty difficult sometimes. BUT we found this lovely walk and a little bit of green space the other day and it helped calm some of those noisy thoughts in my head. . Bungle is slowly learning to love nature. She will now actually touch grass! 🌱 I think when this it's safe again, we'll need to explore a little more. Forests, fields and beaches we're coming for ya!❤

The perfect drying weather continues so I just wanted to share some tips about drying your cloth nappies. ☀️ hang your inserts out in the sun as much as you can. You will get all the stains out and nappies will smell fresh. Octopus hangers are fantastic for this as its easy to move them inside in case the rain came. ☀️ dry your covers and AIOs flat. This will protect the elastic. If you hang them with the pegs by the back of the cover the weight of the nappy will be pulling the elastic and it will slowly loose it's stretchiness. ☀️ PUL (the waterproof material that keeps all the wetness inside) doesn't like direct sun nor radiators. If its exposed to heat the waterproof part will start peeling off. It's better to hang your wraps in shaded area. For pockets and AIO make sure to have pocket side to the sun and take off the sun as soon as possible. ☀️ wool wraps don't need washing too often but if you had to wash them dry them flat @ecoanniepooh @when_ally_met_ralphie #aclothnappyaday4may #makeclothmainstream #dryingweather #washday #washingnotwaste #laundryday #makelaundrynotlandfill #makelaundry #clothdiapersrock #clothnappiesrock #clothnappylove #clothnappiesireland #clothnappyaddict #reusablenappies #clothbummum #clothbum #clothnappies #realnappies #toddlerlife #ecoparenting #ecomama #ecofriendlyliving #noexcuseforsingleuse #stopplasticpollution #zerowaste #sustainableliving #sustainableparenting

#ad It’s not ApWool anymore but my love for wool keeps on growing! Disana wool overpants are so soft and stretchy, I really love that I don’t have to worry about the fit and having sock marks. Merino wool is also super breathable so it’s ideal over a night nappy - it helps reduce urine smell and ensure the nappy is nice and airy all night long. Wool is very low maintenance as you only need to wash and lanolise every so often, so for someone lazy like me it’s also a bonus point 🙄 I got this lovely Rose @disana.natur overpants from The Nappy Lady before they closed to move to a bigger warehouse (exciting!!) - I’m debating whether I *need* a curry one once they’re open again 😬🤭 . Head over to @thenappyladyuk’s stories to follow updates on their moving out. #thenappylady #makeclothmainstream #clothbum #clothnappies #reusablenappies #makelaundrynotlandfill #clothnappy #clothnappyaddict #clothnappylove #clothdiapering #clothdiaper #clothdiaperbaby #clothdiaperaddict #clothdiaperingmama #zerowaste #zerodechet #ecofriendly #sustainable #savingmoney #sustainableliving #reusable #ecoparenting #coucheslavables #stoffwindeln #stoffwindelliebe #clothiscute #wooldiapercover

Little card craft set up for Amelie to find this morning 🌈 This week’s #babipurchallenge is in rainbow-coloured celebration of @babipur turning 13 month! 13 years of Babipur 🐘 13 years of choosing ethics over profit, 13 years of supporting eco-conscious families, 13 years of selling only the most sustainable products. I stumbled across Babipur while pregnant with Ro; seeking out a new way to bring up my third baby with the planet in mind. Little did I know this wasn’t ‘new’ at all, and here Babipur have been, working tirelessly from their humble roots to build up a successful and truly ethical business from their hub in Snowdonia, Wales. Getting to know them more closely the last year or so whilst being a buddy, has proved to me all the above and more. Jolene and Pete, thanks for all that you do 💚 So huge hip-hooray birthday celebrations @babipur! There’s a wonderful prize of a @tri_climb Archi for this week’s challenge winner 😱 So be sure to join in the fun by posting on Instagram using the daily prompts. I’ve linked the challenge post in my stories so you can save it 🎉

Toddling around on the rocky northwest coast. Staying cozy and protected in HumBird. ⁣ What a great way to practice balancing and strengthening those foot muscles.⁣ Having worn minimalist shoes since birth (like wool moccs with thin bottoms) this sweetheart can take this rocky coast with no issue.

Appreciation post ! I have used this time to test out a new deodorant, it’s the perfect time to see if an all natural rock deodorant can hold up against the daily stress that a lockdown can cause. . It’s called @saltoftheearthdeodorant and it’s amazing! Even with the weather we’ve had! . I’ll be interested to see how it holds up when I go back to work in the salon, cutting and blow drying, reaching over people you need to feel confident in your deodorant. Especially with the new potential guidelines that we won’t be allowed air conditioning. 😱😱😱I’ll keep you updated...but in the meantime, what eco brands do you love ?

2 weeks old versus 7 weeks old! Loved the print so much I had to get it in BTP after growing out of the newborn size 🙈 Why do these first weeks go so fast?

When is my baby ready to be toilet trained? You’re asking the wrong question. 😳 When are YOU ready to toilet train? You don’t have to wait until baby starts “showing interest” like many believe. Elimination Communication or EC means learning your babies toilet signals and helping them catch their wees and poops in the potty. Women all over the globe do this where nappies are unavailable or unaffordable. Only they don’t have the same name for it because it’s normal and starts from birth. A lot of kids have trouble with transition from nappies to the potty because a nappy has kept them dry and taught them to ignore their bladder. So when YOU are ready to learn your babies signals, you can introduce the potty slowly and play around. You don’t have to throw the nappies away but you can try and avoid a stumbling block for when everyone is on board to ditch the pamper! How do you start? I’ll show you tomorrow! 🚽 When do you plan on potty training? Have you even thought about it? 💩 #eliminationcommunication #diaperfree #EC #pottytraining #conciousparentingsydney #ecoparenting #twinmum #twinmumlife #godiaperfree #sydneydoula #doula #clothdiapermum #clothnappies #attachmentparenting #naturalparenting #earlypottytraining

Weekends are for tie dye, right? (or every day for me!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I like the raspberry dragon tie dye because its subtle but still fun, plus every single shirt (or dress) is one of a kind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @lissaanglin

Hi guys! Popping on today to share a series of books I hadn’t seen before - not on insta, or in bookshops, or even recommended to me on amazon based on my browsing history... which is all, frankly, a crime! Because the @mrs.peanuckle series of alphabet books are an absolute joy 🙌🏻😍 There are six in the series, and we’ve started with three - BIRD 🦢, VEGETABLES 🌽, and FLOWERS 🌷- there are also bugs, trees and fruit... which we will hopefully add to our shelves soon. I’ve noticed that our wee one is beginning to identify letters in words by herself and be able to point out and say “A”, or “P” when she sees it... and she loves the alphabet books we already have, and pretty much knows them by heart. So I thought it would be a good idea to have more alphabet books focussing on a topic (rather than a random mix of things!) so we can do some cross-subject learning more about, say birds, while boning up on our alphabet at the same time... the facts on each page are really good, and not overly simplistic and the bright and fun illustrations really enhance them (so they are not just for little little ones!) so I think they will last a long time for us and be able to be used in further learning about each topic/table set ups etc. The wonderful artwork is by @jessie_ford_illustration / @sugar_snap_studio The only thing I found a bit strange was when the books said something was Mrs Peanuckle’s favourite, or referenced her in the facts... she’s (sadly!) not introduced anywhere in the books, or on the cover other than being the author so the concept is a bit random (especially for a child). I’d like to know more about her for sure! All in all, fab wee series and these would make great gifts too. They’re really chunky and a nice size (board books btw 💪🏻)... so happy to have found these! Xx Abi

Thought I’d pop on and share the Birthday Cake I made for our little ones second birthday on Sunday... ...I saw the idea of adding dried pressed flowers to a cake over a year ago and made a mental note to start pressing a few bits in books for this years cake. Last year, I used fresh cherry blossom and Hawthorne, so I’d dried a few from her first birthday cake already and just added little snippings from the garden here and there as they grew. Honestly, mamas... this is so simple and fast, it took less than five minutes to pop the flowers on! And we have a little vintage @bramblyhedgeofficial ornament for the top that we plan to include each year... I’ll definitely do it again it was so satisfying and effective 💛 (PS probably goes without saying, but I took the flowers off immediately before cutting but if you’re leaving them on for longer or want to serve them, then choose edible varieties!) Xx Edit! Left out the most important part... it’s @nigellalawson chocolate Guinness cake with cream cheese frosting. I made it in two 6” tins so it was small and tall, and made double the icing qty to fill the middle and cover the sides and it was 🤤👌🏻 it remains, my favourite cake of ALL TIME and it’s so simple.

I promised I’d share the Spring ornaments I made for our @grimmswoodentoys celebration ring... and I never got a moment to snap them! But we had the ring all set out nicely for yesterday’s birthday celebrations so it was a perfect chance to do so! The celebration ring is definitely more for us, than our daughter at the moment who wants to play with the bits (and possibly pull them apart! I’ve had to do a few repairs 🙈) but I know these will become a big part of our family rhythm in the years to come. So that’s us got a Spring Set, a Christmas/Winter set and I have Autumn ones from Grimms, which I might just add one or two of my own to... now to dream up Summer ones! What do you reckon? I was thinking maybe Swallows? A Sunflower? Butterfly, Strawberry? What says Summer to you? Xx

Happy Saturday everyone! We made it through another week 💪🏻 it’s felt like quite a tough one, it seems universally... it’s our little ones second birthday tomorrow and I’m feeling SUPER emotional 😭 Here are the books I’ve bought her as gifts! Little miss has absolutely loved the new Peter Rabbit we got her at Easter, so I thought I’d add to the series with the Happy Birthday one (which I sourced second hand), and Three Little Bunnies! I really love the illustrations - perhaps even more than the originals - and that the stories are more gentle, and a little less sinister! 😅 Also: Planting A Rainbow, the Pippa & Pelle (under the summer sun) summer book, and Flower Fairies of the Spring as a little keepsake book... Incidentally, I also picked up (not pictured) two more Peter Rabbit books - the Christmas one, and one about Autumn/Halloween/Pumpkins! They were only a few pounds each as they’re out of season so I’m putting them away for our next seasonal rotations. Just in case you do that too and want to pick up a bargain! Anyway, hope you enjoy a little peek in to these few wee books! I personally always love getting to see inside books and get a sense of scale so hope you do too 💛 I’ll be over here sobbing in to the birthday cake batter, and preparing to celebrate our beautiful, incredible, smart, kind, funny and strong little two year old. 😭😭😭😭🌈🌈

I was instantly blown away when I discovered the beautiful puzzles by polish based designers @stuka_puka a few weeks back and ordered three immediately (they’ll kindly ship to the UK if you email them)... They are something I envisage using for years to come, and integrating in to home schooling, but I will introduce in their simplest form for now - with just the big leaves removed as a chunky but challenging puzzle for our almost two year old... building up to identifying and placing the leaf names (once she can read/spell) and also placing the matching seeds in the level under the leaves. You can also take rubbings from the engraved surface so imagine all the possibilities for learning/art projects/science etc at a much later date! I think the leaves puzzle is the simplest, and sturdiest, of the three I chose, so I’m going to give it to her for her birthday on Sunday... hope she’ll enjoy the lovely big leaves and we can see how many we can hunt for once we’re able to go out and about a bit more... Isn’t this just the most gorgeous thing... a work of art? It’s really large and substantial... such great design 💪🏻😍🌿🌱🍁🍀🍂🍃 Hope you’re all holding up okay! Feels weird to be planning a birthday in lockdown. We don’t go mad normally, but we wanted to take our daughter to the zoo for the first time... or a petting farm to see the lambs. Maybe next year, egh? Xx

Another sunny day here! I’m almost finished putting together our little ones Easter/Spring gift bag... I have one more item still to arrive (paint set!) but for now, here’s what she’s got... 💛🌼🐣 I bought the beautiful wee jute drawstring bag from @tillyanna weeks ago when they were running an amazing promotion. It’s personalised with our daughters name (which I’ve hidden under Mr Hare from @threadbear.design) and we will have/use it for many years to come! It’s so nicely made... to the bag, we will add Peter Rabbits Spring Surprise (it’s one of the modern ones, but still so sweet and joyful!), and The Little Book of Garden Bird Songs. We are expecting this to be a HUGE hit as the animal sounds on our amazon dot is used regularly! 😂 Finally, I bought A Year Around the the Great Oak by Gerda Muller. It’s as lovely as you’d expect, and oaks have a special meaning for us as a family (from little acorns, mighty oaks grow) so this will be in heavy rotation for years to come. And, along with her paint set, which will *hopefully* arrive soon, I bought a big tin of crayons as she’s getting really in to drawing/painting at the moment and they will last her a long time... Our lovely friend @dearprudencestudio Laura also sent us her beautiful perpetual calendar as a wee gift for little miss! It’s SO beautiful. I love the image for April. Laura has lots of beautiful bundles right now, carefully curated for what we’re all dealing with at the moment. A bundle of ten cards to send snail mail to your loved ones, and a kids creative pack to keep your little love out of mischief... have a wee peek. Sending love! Xo

“What the hand does, the mind remembers” - Maria Montessori Here again, this time with some riveting Friday morning content/chat about tracing boards, peeps! First off, I want to add the caveat that I know these learning tools are NOT cheap. In fact, I’m pretty sure we could bandy about words like “heirloom” and “investment”, because that’s pretty much accurate! I’ve said it before- we are on a tight budget (chronic illnesses + self employed) so we do not go mad with toys for the wee one, or buy things on a whim - but we do invest in quality items that will last a long time... (there is “investment and heirloom” again! 😂) but bear with me! We are planning to home school until at least 7, hopefully, so I’m hoping objects like this will get a LOT of daily use for years to come. Last year, when I received an unexpected wee lump of money (just a few hundred quid), I decided to buy a few things I knew I wouldn’t be likely to be able to afford again, and put them away. The @treasuresfromjennifer ABC tracing tiles were one of these items, bought from @conscious_craft and I considered them a big investment. I haven’t brought them out yet, as we’re only just starting to be interested in the alphabet... but soon, I will! Little miss had a big surge in her interest in numbers and counting, recently, so when I spotted these @thelittlecoachhouse counting tiles on @babipur I decided to get them for her - for use, starting now! Because From Jennifer pieces are lovingly hand made and finished in the US, they work out very expensive when converted/imported, but I just hadn’t seen anything as beautifully made (there are lots made from plywood and mdf on Etsy etc)... until spotting the offerings from Coach House! As you can see, they are really substantial and well made, nicely finished and have a beautiful feel to them. I felt at £45, that was a really affordable way to bring numbers to the table in such a tangible way for our almost two year old! You can use them to trace the number (and take rubbings too!), and use the counting dots to start to make a connection between a physical amount of something, and the written numbers. The way they are laid out also helps (cont..)

Back at it again today trying to sneak a moment to craft some Spring ornaments for our Grimms Celebration ring... so hard to decide what to do for such an abundant season?! 🤔 But, thus far, I’ve got a bumblebee, tulip, narcissus bulb, an egg (which I think will be blue speckled!) and a Bluetit... I hastily hacked them out of the wood I had from the last set. All the tools were still stashed in the kitchen from the winter set (not being tidy served me very well today!) so it didn’t take too long at all to get going... Considering a whole separate set of ornaments for Easter- more eggs and leaping bunnies (obvs) - but that’ll have to wait. My daughter is highly disinterested in the celebration ring atm, so I’m mainly doing this to appease my mum-boredom and her future self! 😅😂 Hopefully they’ll come to life with a bit of paint 🎨🙏🏻🤷🏻 What are you up to this rainy Saturday? 🥰🤗 xx

I invested in the beautiful @grimmswoodentoys celebration ring in autumn - along with some ornaments, and loved setting it up for Samhain. I had a wee notion to make some ornaments of my own for the Christmas/Winter season, as I thought I could maybe make things totally personal to our wee rituals and interests... plus, I thought it might be fun! So, over the last week or so, I hunted down some wood, dowel (@hobbycrafthq & b&q) acrylic paints from @sostrenegrene and dug out some of my old jewellery making tools. My husband kindly entertained the baba for the day so I could whittle away and make some festive bits... and I managed to finish six! I made a snowman (plan to show our daughter the classic that is The Snowman on Xmas eve, it’ll be her first animated programme/kid specific show ever!), a stocking that looks just like her linen one with patchwork top, a Robin because our garden one follows us everywhere, a snowflake, present, and a fir tree... had such a nice wee time to myself making these while listening to Xmas tunes! I’ve loads of wood left so I think I’ll make more sets for each season/event... Feel free to ask any questions about how I made these if you fancy making some yourself. I love the idea of mixing home made with the Grimms ones, for a selection of ornaments that really reflects our family and what we’re doing each season. And with that, it’s dark here! Another day almost over. I’d be on more often but most days, before I know it, it’s too dark to take photos and it feels like we’re ready for bed! Anyone else feel like hibernating? 🥴 Xx Abigail
