Anniversary

Yesterday Jamie and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. Tuesday's are busy school days with 2 lots of football practice to be a taxi for so there wasn't much time for celebration.

We did however, manage a wonderful autumnal walk with Morten followed by sneaky fish and chips before school pick up.

I made Jamie a little gift after I saw an idea on a Martha Stewart site somewhere. It was quick and easy to make and I had to include Morten!

I hope your weeks are going well, ours is busy and tiring....half term must be coming soon (I hope)!

    1. I'm not sure what the score is if it isn't your own idea but I did enjoy making it. I have got on well with my Etsy shop this week so we will have to wait and see! Morten is a wire haired dachund, but a fat one! Xx

  14. Hi, just discovered your blog, it's really fab. The little cross stitch is really cute, nice present idea. I love the card in the photo too, did you draw that or where's it from? I love cards and run a little card and print shop - I always love discovering new stationary!

  15. Hi Laura. I didn't draw the Roberts radio on the card, I wish I had! It's from www.paper-heart.com.
    Love your shop by the way x
