Half term holidays can often be quiet in the world of parties, so we'd expected a gentle week. Alexis was headed for Morocco and I had lots of activities planned with my three for the week. Funny how one of us going away seems to generate a flurry of activity...

First thing on Monday morning, we were featured in a lovely blog post from Babyccino. It's always heartening to hear that the kiddies are loving our craft activities.

Where to start? Choices choices.

The Fairy Peg Doll is a great place to start.

Onto the Ladybird Spot Hunt

Crafts complete!

The result of such a lovely write up was lots of exciting orders to pack up whilst entertaining the kids, hurtling to the post office en route to seeing our friends, and puncturing my tyre in the process, amongst other challenging moments.

But it's all worth it when you get lovely testimonials in as we did last week... here are a few of our favourites:

"Just to say that they arrived this morning and they are beautiful. The quality and style is just lovely and exactly what I was looking for. I am really anti plastic tat in party bags so I am very pleased to have found these! I think it's a fantastic idea and I hope that you go from strength to strength."

"I received my order yesterday, the kits look fantastic and I can't wait to give them out to all the children. You'll be receiving another order in July for my son's birthday!"

"...thank you so much for the package which arrived this morning. They're great - the children will be very happy! Can I also just say what beautiful packaging you have."

Message for Alexis - here's to summer half term being just as busy & positive when I head off to Morocco!
