I have been thinking about creating a memory book for my kids for some time now, and I have finally found one that I definitely can do. It is called a Birthday Q & A album. How it works ? Starting from the age 3, You ask your child 20 questions every year around their birthday. You then collect them in an album with a picture of them on their birthday with their age and maybe using their favorite color that year as the background. You can be as creative as you want.
Here are the 20 questions. You can always remove or change the questions.
1. What is your favorite color?
2. What is your favorite toy?
3. What is your favorite fruit?
4. What is your favorite tv show?
5. What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?
6. What is your favorite outfit?
7. What is your favorite game?
8. What is your favorite snack?
9. What is your favorite animal?
10. What is your favorite song?
11. What is your favorite book?
12. Who is your best friend?
13. What is your favorite cereal?
14. What is your favorite thing to do outside?
15. What is your favorite drink?
16. What is your favorite holiday?
17. What do you like to take to bed with you at night?
18. What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
19. What do you want for dinner on your birthday?
20. What do you want to be when you grow up?

One of my favorite things to do while on holiday is visit weekly markets. I love finding unique items, some maybe vintage while others are handmade with great attention to detail.
I wish we had these kinds of markets in Kuwait.
What a fabulous birthday invitation. Certainly an out of the box idea.
I love creative people!
Fathers day is this Sunday and I hope you all have an idea what your getting all the special fathers in your life. I think the number one gift this fathers day is going to be the iPad, but what do you get a father that has everything ? Im one for creating special hand made gifts with the kids, it will be fun to do and the kids will be so proud of themselves when they give it to their dad.
Here is a nice frame idea that is very simple to make.
You will need:
A5 card or you can use A4 and cut in half
Stickers and any other embellishments that you have
Draw two D’s and an A shape onto the card, and cut out. Use a small pair of scissors to cut out the inside of the letters, too (younger children will need adult help or supervision).
Decorate your letters. We simply used stickers but you can use gems, ribbons, sequins, pompoms or anything else from your craft box.
Glue a photo to the back of each letter so that it fills the aperture. Trim any overhanging bits of photo away.
Layer the letters so they overlap slightly, spelling out the word “Dad”, and glue together.
You could laminate the photo frame to make it last, or enclose the whole thing within a larger Perspex frame.
You can also bake some homemade cupcakes and add theses adorable cupcake toppers. You can download them here and print them out.
What do you have planned for fathers day ?
With the end of the school year just around the corner I thought it would be a good idea to start coming up with some handmade gifts that you can do with your children to give their teachers. It is very important to show teachers that you apreciate all the work they do through out the year. Always remember it is the thought that counts!
Here are a few of my favourite gifts.
I misplaced my camera strap a while back and have been looking for a replacement ever since. I want something fun and vibrant. While doing some online shopping I stumbled upon a website called Shey b. This adorable online store sells unique camera straps, iPod cases and iPad cases all handmade to order. What I love most about the straps is that you can add a lens cap cover on to your strap so that you always know where it is
