Hannah's birthday scrapbooking party

Last week we held our first scrapbooking birthday party for Hannah - there were 16 girls, all aged around 6-8, and we had stamping, embossing and lots of cutting and sticking!   Mum had bought frames for all the finished pages and here are a couple to show off... I think its safe to say the girls all enjoyed it!   If you would be interested in booking a birthday crafty party, then contact Louise on 07884003617 or email

    Herman the German

    In our house this week we have been 'cultivating' Herman the German - Herman is a sourdough cake mix, originating from the Amish community tradition of  giving out a sourdough bread to the needy and sick.    My pilates instructor Lindsay gave me a little tinfoil tray of mix last week with a sheet of instructions - Herman sits in a bowl in the kitchen and you 'feed' him every few days and stir every day - great fun for the kids.   We have just taken the finished results out of the oven and I am quite intrigued to see what he tastes like!!

    The mix ready to go in the oven....
