​A sound you are grateful for?

This one is easy the.  sound I am always grateful for. My little boys laughter. 

I was told I couldn’t have children. Then I had a difficult pregnancy and nearly lost him twice. More than grateful for this little boy and his laughter is contagious. Even when he should be sleeping.

What food are you most grateful for? 

On a Thursday lunch time we go to the local Baptist Church for there Lunch club. 

Some lovely ladies basically give up one lunch time a week to serve the local community. All sorts of people go from the homeless, to the Blind, to families. 

We love going we get to see friends and eat lovely food. 

Completely grateful for this food and the ladies who serve it.

What technology are you grateful for?

Today it’s got to be the virgin plus box. We have lots of back recordings of Thomas and Noddy that JJ can watch while I am preparing his breakfast. 

He loves a bit of Thomas. He also likes the dancing that they do before the start of the show.

What Smell are you grateful for today? 

That is easy. When we moved to Wednesbury we were brought some scented candles from IKEA. The Sinnlig candle in a glass. I love the purple and white ones. 

These are the only scented candle I know that gives constant scent (not just when you blow them out) and cover the scent of dirty nappies. 

30 Days of gratitude.

I’ve not used my blog as often as I would like so I am going to try and do another 30 day challenge to get myself back in the habit. 

I like the look of this one because unlike the 30 day nail polish one I did I don’t have to paint my nails and the blog about it. It’s literally just a blog. 

Jeremiah’s door hanger

Published December 5, 2015 by kimmiebee

I haven’t blogged anything really crafty on here for a while so I thought I would share this. My most recently completed project, a door hanger for Jeremiah’s room.

I made this using:

  • a house shaped photo frame
  • thin plywood
  • sticky back plastic
  • letters that I cross stitched on plastic Aida


I started this project making the letters. I found an alphabet in one of my pattern books or in a magazine. Then I copied it onto graph paper so I could work out the rainbow.

I think stitching all of the letters took me a total of three days. I also stitched his middle name (John) but when I came to put it all together I misplaced the J for John so at the moment I have left a space and know where I will stick those letters when I find them.

I then started on the boat, cutting the bottom shape from the ply wood and covering it and the photo frame in sticky back plastic. My original intention was to paint these pieces but I couldn’t get the paint to stick. i then found some lovely plastics so decided to use those instead.

I then threaded some ribbon round the top ready to hang on the door.
