You know you have a new baby when the scent of flowers fill the house....
I got a new flower press just for the occasion and Tiny Creature and I had a lovely few minutes in the sun preserving some of the beauty. When the flowers are pressed dry we will use them in Mini Creatures Baby Book. At least that's the idea. They will probably sit in the press for a long, long time.....

This little video clip was taken at Tiny Creature's first swimming lesson (she looks so much like Mini Creature), she was just 6 weeks old and slept through the entire thing. I was captivated by her in the water. At almost 3 she can now swim after going to the same Aquatic Harmony swimming lessons this whole time. I love the lessons, I love the teacher I love the location and I love that they are a small independent business. 8 day old Mini Creature will surely be a swimming genius too :) ... See MoreSee Less

At the 11th hour (yes today is D day but no sign of her) I made Pico a very simple hat out of some gorgeous shetland wool. Like everything I make, Tiny Creature assumes it's for her or her cuddly friends, this time 'Prill-a-roo' benefits nicely from the cosy hat!! ... See MoreSee Less

This zip blankie (it's about 1m x 1m) is part of a feeding twiddle pack I'm working on for Tiny Creature so that she has something to fiddle with when I'm spending hours feeding Pico. The question is... will I get the twiddle pack finished before Pico comes??
5% chance she'll come this saturday :)

It's finally done....Hurrah!
Almost 3 years ago my sister presented me with gorgeous leather bound baby book for Tiny Creature- she adorned each page with crafty goodness and first year prompts. I was a little overwhelmed as it had about 300 pages in it for us to fill with anecdotes, photos and props. Almost 3 years later it is complete and I'm soooooooo proud of it. I'm from Australia and baby books are big deals so it was really important to me to have this for her but also important to finish it before Pico comes.
Did you do one for your tiny ones?
This time I've asked my sister for a mini version for Pico :)

Tiny Creature has made Pico a present for when she arrives... a ribbon ring thingie!
I really wanted her to spend a bit of time making it; choosing the ribbons, cutting them, tying them (with my help) so that she has complete ownership over the gift. The making actually ended in tears, "mooma- I dont want Pico to come", but we talked it through and I felt the whole thing was really positive. A bit of a pre-new baby counselling session, in a 2 yr 10month old kind of a way! :)
She has now put the ribbon ring thingie in pride of place and is showing it off to everyone, "Look what I made for Pico"......

Whilst packing up to move, I've been having a good clear out and found many gems of yester-year including a list of baby names I wrote when I was 13. If you look closely you will see that I crossed 'Chip' and 'Bohemian' off the boys list. This was when I sadly realised at about the age of 15 that twins dont run in my family and that I'd probably never have a 'Dale' or a 'Rhapsody' to go with them. I was very upset. Seriously! :) ...

Maternity Leave

April 16, 2016, 8:00pm

Makey Mamas

I'm about to make my little family of 3, a 4. I wont be running any Creative workshops for pregnant women or Mums for now. I *hope* to resume activity in the Autumn but I'm going to see what feels right and not put too much pressure on myself or my support network. I will still be posting on FB and sharing makey ideas but less so. I have spent 2 years bulidng this up and have worked harder than I ever have in my life. Frankly I'm terrified that by having this break that all of my effort will be lost and that is a heart breaking thought. I'm so grateful to each of you Beauties for your support, kindness, enthusiasm and how you have helped me to spread the word. Activities like the 'Mothers day hearts' and the 'Prematurity Stars' are a team effort and I feel privledged to have been part of them with you. I implore you all, mother to mother, to keep telling your friends and family about Makey Mamas. Love Mistyx

This time last year I posted about yet another Man Beast Family tradition that I love: birthday chairs, a decorated chair for the special person of the day. Today's was very different to last years (on the left) as Tiny Creature got involved. I had to restrain myself from being controlling about how pretty it looked and I'm so glad I did because SHE LOVED IT! Birthday chairs are a toddlers dream- threading, winding, tying (ish), so many places to attach stuff to! Wow! She even painted him a botty mat!
I reckon this should not be limited to birthdays from now on!

I've been feeling like such a fakey mama :( Considering that I run an enterprise supporting pregnant women and mamas to create lovely things for their babies, I've just not made anything for Pico and I've been feeling really sad about it.
That is until now....hurrah! I've made some matching booties for Tiny Creature and Pico. I might even make them matching dresses....next century! :)

Someone suggested that I needed to get some BIG PANTS for my hospital bag. However the ones I bought are sooooooo big that Tiny Creature decided to make a den out of them today with Man Beast....."Look, a house for us daddy"
This made me laugh as it was only last night that you Beauties commented on my post about den building.... and I quote you, "den building encourages imagination, problem solving, and spacial awareness" :)

Tiny Creature is loving building dens at the mo. It got me thinking this very cool table den might be a good birthday make for her but I wonder if a ready made creation like this will take away from the exploration of building dens herself?! hmmm? What do you think? ... See MoreSee Less

Katie LyttleIt is a tricky one! I would weigh up which needs more adult input. If she is building on her own then I would stick with that.....she is using her creativity, motor skills, problem solving and imagination! The one above is really pretty but not much skill is needed to build it (the child being the builder). I would use the one above for a child who was struggling to play creatively or build dens, as it might inspire play which could then be built on! Have you thought of play stands/frames, which make great "foundations" to build dens on! Or some pretty cloths to build with? Also, things to put in the dens are always a favourite, nice cushions, or a little table and chairs?......Sorry, you got me started! Ha ha. Xxxx2 months ago   ·  1
Kari WarrenerMy opinion is that a pile of blankets/sheets, a box of clothes pegs and tables/chairs/clothes horses is best as it encourages imagination, problem solving, and spacial awareness. They are also able to extend and change their ideas easily. Sorry, den building is a passion of ours (as a family and early years practitioner)2 months ago   ·  1

Gemma SmartI think this looks beautiful but ultimately for the tiny creatures they love the adventure of building the den and rearranging it. We get extra chairs involved to make a big den too and lots of blankets ;) the contents of the lounge end up inside normally too :D it's up to you :) I'd quite like this den for myself ;) x2 months ago   ·  1
Julia PurserI've been having the very same conundrum! In the end I decided that the teepee fills the gap of ready-made & 'pretty' play space nicely, while the tables are reserved for DIY blanket/sheet dens. Kids love getting involved in creating the dens and adding extensions with tunnels, chairs, airers etc too - love seeing them get creative :-)2 months ago   ·  1

This may look like some scribbles from a 2 year 10 month Tiny Creature and it is, but I'm really hoping these scribbles will help her negotiate the challenging weeks when Pico, my baby bump arrives. Let me explain...
For months now TC has been talking about all the things she wants to do with Pico and Ive been thinking that I must somehow capture what she was saying so that she can look back on it when Pico arrives and is possibly feeling put out. I faffed about with the idea of creating some sort of magnificent makey creation but that ain't happened so instead this is what we've created.....
A 'book' of 'drawings'. Felt tips, stamps and glitter. Done. We've worked on it 3 times already and she keeps telling me more things she wants to do with Pico that she then draws. She has read it to anyone that'll listen. Here is a taster....
"Luna and Pico are eating food. Some fish for Luna. An Apple for Pico. Pico wants some grapes but Luna is going to eat them all." Then later, "I love Pico so I'm going to give her some grapes."

What things have you done to help your first born deal with the birth of your second born?

Kate KempI read this book to my son a lot - he's 2. Think it helped him understand. www.amazon.co.uk/Theres-House-Inside-Orchard-Picturebooks/dp/18412106842 months ago   ·  1
Jo HoneyWe did gifts for my daughter from her new big brother and vice versa. Something I did when I was still pregnant which also seemed to really help was to look at photos of my son when he was a baby. We talked about what babies do and how they communicate to try to prepare him for the potential crying (which soon turned into actual crying), how much they feed - I showed him lots of photos of him feeding and cuddling as a baby. I just didn't want him to expect a playmate when really it would be a helpless bundle. We also videoed the big meet and it is just the lushest video.2 months ago   ·  2
Beatrice BraileyLovely idea! Ru being only just 2 when his sister arrived, we just encouraged him to cuddle my bump and talk to her beforr she was born. He got a present from her, and since she was born we get him chatting to her and kissing her goodbye/goodnight. Also let him "play" with her where possible- he loves lying on his tummy and doing tummy time with her: fonds it hilarious! Xx2 months ago   ·  1

'Before and After'... that is the title I want to put on these photos but my pregnancy brain is frankly beyond it!
A couple of weeks ago I finished my first ever 'How to photograph your Baby 6 week course' at Eastern Yoga and quite frankly the results speak for themselves in these photos taken by mama Charlotte. Before the start of the course I asked the mamas to send me a baby photo and then on week 6 they produced these collages. It was wonderful to see how proud the mamas were when they managed to capture the gorgeousness of their little ones.
I was pretty chuft (I now declare this to be a word!) when all 8 women said they'd recommend the course, and said such lovely things as:
"It's been the most enjoyable course/ group I've done since becoming a mum"
"It's been the favourite part of our week"
"The best use of my maternity leave"

I've personally learnt loads and next time this course will be even better, although when I run it next will be anyones guess.....

As I approach the last few weeks of my pregnancy I'm thinking of making a postpartum care kit for myself. I try really hard to make these for friends so by hook or by crook I will do it for myself!! I want to make some postpartum maternity pads, some Nipple cream, perineum spray and maybe some healing bath salts.
I was wondering if any of you pregnant bristol Beauties might want to join me?

This wont be a Makey Mamas Workshop- it will be a night for a few pregnant women to get together and make something for themselves. It'll be at my home so I've only got room for a few of peeps and you'll either need to bring stuff and/or share in ingredient costs.

Following my post about doing some simple flower pressing with Tiny Creature, I re-discoverd my Flower Fairy Book. It has verses for most English wild flowers so when we found some primroses I read her the little verse to go with it. She LOVED it!! Next we pressed them then we drew them (read: scribble!) I really love activities that build upon previous activities and so that she can see her efforts and be encouraged by them. It was incredibly pleasing when see asked me to do "pimose". ...
