2 weeks

I can't believe Violette has been with us two weeks already. She is a real star and fits in the family perfectly. She is a great baby, she sleeps and eat well. She loves cuddles. ( a good thing really since Amelie and Harry and even daddy never leave her alone !) and she has a good long afternoon nap that gives me a chance to scrap again. I have started a kind of mini book. Nothing to show yet but it is definitely working progress and it feels good to be creating again.
But, it must be time for a cuddle while she is awake, so I leave you with a new picture.

Take care

The nursery

I did it ! I managed to take a few pictures of the nursery.

So you might see the tree that I bought in Paris when I went for a girly weekend. I used decopatch on it. I am still not convinced about the colours but in fact, it brightens up the room and I am getting used to it. In there is also a litle patchwork that Amelie made with her meme. A big patchwork on the wall that my sister made for Amelie when she was a baby. There is also a mobile that Harry made at school and looks perfect in that room. A wreath that I made out of willow at a Christmas craft evening and a little bird that I made last year as a Christmas decoration. And the curtains that were a joined effort between my mum and I.
I love this room and I hope that Violette grows to love it too.

Oh well...

I was meant to take pictures of the nursery to show you all of our crafty creations but guess what .. I haven't had time ! How can such a little thing take so much of your time !! Where does the day go?! I am not complaining, everything is going well. ( well, it is today anyway ! I will probably be crying my eyes out tomorrow ! ).

So instead of crafty pictures, here is a picture of Violette, one week old.

And now, back to trying to do the housework without being interrupted, not that I mind the distraction really!

New arrival...

Baby Violette Zara Cockburn was born on Sunday 13.01.13. She is the sweetest little thing ever and we all  have alreday madly fallen in love with her.

The nursery is looking really good. ( even if I say so myself !! ). We all had a go at making something and it makes it even more special. I will take some pictures today and you can see our handy work !
Take care
