the Papier Mache giveaway on Bloesem

It has been a hectic fun week, a beautiful 'compliment' and the start of two exciting new projects, which I will tell you about in two weeks time from now. I hope you had a good week too…time for some rest and hope to see you back on Monday. Unfortunately no Mom Story, have invited many moms, but no responses so far…but I do have another new column that I will start on Monday! Cheers, irene xoxo
