Craft, Pyrex and Dolly Pegs

On Monday my little boy turned 2. We went to the Zoo to celebrate, we had a group of 17 adults and 16 children! It was a little manic and me and my husband were up at 6:30am making a picnic lunch for everyone! It was a lot of fun and amazing to see my little boy having the best day ever with all his cousins and friends.
I decided to personalise a t-shirt for his birthday. I went for an American look with a baseball top and then added a J for Jake at the front and a 2 on the back in a red fabric with red stars. Here is the result:
It's easy enough to personalise things to make them a little bit more special and individual, let me know if you need help to do something like this yourself. I bought the t-shirt from Humbugz on Amazon, it was great quality.
This is my second piece of Pyrex loveliness! It's such a cute little dish that I am keeping jewellery bits in. The pattern is so pretty. Thank you to my friend Tracey for this lovely birthday present. Tracey also gave me some of these very sweet dolly pegs, these are available to buy from her facebook shop here:
I found out yesterday I have been nominated for a Best Home Blog on the MADS 2012. I will let you know more information about that once I have checked it all out. Looks like exciting stuff!
I hope you all have lovely weekend plans. I am off to a wedding which I am really looking forward to, I do love a wedding!! I also have very exciting news on the blog next week! All will be revealed....
