Half Here

So have you missed me? Have ya? Huh? Huh?
I have most definately missed you!! I soooo can not wait to get my laptop back, load some photos, edit some photos, play around, use my favourites list and do a PROPER blog post, with photos!!!
Everyday I think "oooww owww, must write about that" but Noooooooo, so rest assured , you will be bombarded with posts once I am reunited with my beloved Larry, the laptop!!

For now, cos I am having withdrawals, and am perusing the www for quirky , handmade gift ideas for my 3 little darlings for their birthdays in April. I have decided I don't really want to give them anything too battery operated, plastic or bulk manufactured, not that I have a problem with that sort of stuff, believe me, my house is FULL to the brim of it, but thats just the thing!! After Christmas, during my big cull, I donated a garbage bag of toys to the Flood victims, so I am not intending to replace them all in a hurry. Plus, Max and Lacey are happy playing with anything that Stella is and Stella loves playing with blocks, her wooden train set from Ikea, her baby doll Sally Fay and cooking up a storm at her kitchenette!!
I am even planning on making their birthday parties "Your Presence is Presents enough", actually, I am pretty sure that is what I am going to do. My original thought was to make them "Please no Toys" but people could take offense to that, therefore, it will be no gifts, but how to make a child understand that when they are just getting used to the whole birthday thing in the first place!!

So here are a few things I have discovered in my travels for our Biggest girl Stella;

A few of these for her kitchenette and tea parties with her dolls and teddies would be nice!

TEA SET - Eco Friendly Felt Play Food - Princess Tea Party Set on Silver Platter - Pink - Deliciously scented sugar cookies - Perfect for Valentine's Day

You can see a common theme here. Stella has mountains of plastic food, to which our babies put in their mouth ona regular basis. Hmmm that worries me what chemicals are in them, Sad I know!! AND they end up scattered all over the floor and never look that great. Out with the old and in with the new!

And how about this mega gorgeous clock!! What a fun and colourful way to teach our kiddies the time!! Perfect in their rooms or toy room too!

A Rag doll similar to this one for Lacey or Stella or both from Aunty Kristy!! ;) hint hint
And I am going to make her a bedding set with a pillow, sheets and quilt top for her dolls bed too!!
Anyone else got some good ideas for a little girl turning 3, or maybe its 23?!
