Children in Need & Hiding from Lottie

That time of the year again - Children in Need.  Me and Lottie are attending a fundraising event tomorrow with members of our home education group, so we thought she could decorate one of her old t-shirts with fabric pens. We used a stencil for the spots and then I hand-wrote a poem, which Lottie wrote by herself, on the back.  We will put this away in her memory box afterwards so she can look at it always.


Also in this post I wanted to share with you a couple of Christmas gifts I have made in secret for Lottie (so she wont be viewing this post!).  The first gift is something I've seen all over the place this year and that is a 'Like' picture.  So I sat in front of the PC and wrote Lottie's favourite things in life, printed it off, added a bit of glitter, painted a pine frame and then made a bead embellishment and added that to the front of the frame.

And added a label on the back.


This little cutie I saw in one of my magazines and decided to give it a go.  It's the first time I've worked with felt and stitching, and I'm really pleased with it.  I'm going to glue a little magnet on the back so she can put it on a magnet surface in her bedroom.

I just hope she likes them as much as me!!

  3. I love the 'Lottie Likes' frame.
    I have a special box for my grandson that I pop things in for him to look back on when he's older. It's a great idea, My children always kept scrap books and they are great to look through.
    Thank you for popping over to my blog, the zoo theme is a great idea and I love your 'don't eat like animals' rule
