My baby is a Handful!


{My dear friend Marjon aka Vorstin took this beautiful picture of Lode}

We have had a wonderul day yesterday celebrating Lode's fifth Birthday! Of course we missed the grandparents and close family a lot, they should be here on your child's Birthday but we tried to make it as beautiful as possible for him. Today we will be hadding out to Universal Studios here in Singapore something I'm not a super fan of, rather do something more low-key, but I'm sure he will LOVE it :):)


Last week on Friday we celebrated Lode's party at his school, the teachers are just fantastic, they invite the parents to come and join the party circle and ask them to tell a little bit about their son or daughter. Of course the cake and the party-bags for the kids in the class were the most important part of the whole morning… wonderful to see the big smiles and excitement on the little faces >>>READ MORE   + FREE DOWNLOADS

Lode often comes home with party bags from Ben10, transformers and other really exciting stuff, so I was really worried whether my handmade little bags were cool enough, but the kids loved them, they had a lot of fun with the mustaches and everybody thought the Lion looked very nice.


The wonderful Reka Kiraly from Finland send me the beautiful Lion Tags in a downloadable pdf file. And she is kind enough to give them to you for free too!

Download RekaKiraly_Birthday and Download RekaKiraly_Birthday_lion to get the name tags from Reka Kiraly.


I'm a huge fan of Reka's stunning work!! We already have a couple of her prints in her home, but just noticed the "Big Sea" and "Balloons' and added them to my print wishlist.
