Come on Beauties we can do this....one final push for support...

I have 33 CHC's (Community Heart Champions) covering 167 NICU's across the entire of the UK. Yep that's right, we are amazing! I have just 7 units in London that need covering- who can help? You don't have to live in London to do this- all hearts will be sent in the post.
Ideally I need 2 or 3 more CHC's- to take on a couple of Units each.
Who's in??

Here's some more background if you don't know what I'm talking about:
Heart Campaign 2018
We aim to get a homemade heart to every mum spending Mother's Day in a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) with their little ones. In 2018 the organisation of making ,labeling , managing and distribution of the hearts is being doing at a local level by Community Heart Champions (CHC's)

This is the role of a CHC:
Either on your own or with a team of people (maybe a craft group/ church group, etc)
MAKE hearts (crochet, knitted, felted etc)
LABEL hearts (after not labelling the hearts in the first year we realised how important it was for the mums who received them to know where they came from)
ORGANISE the distribution of the hearts (this will involve working directly with local hospitals or with the regional Neo Natal trusts- no mean feat!)
DELIVER the hearts either by post or in person before Mother's Day 2018

PLEASE NOTE: Makey Mamas will still be asking for heart donations to cover the South West if you just want to make hearts but not be a CHC. We don't need many though! Please message me for details.

I’d love to do something in Bristol...please tell me what and when and I will get back to you straight away Thanks

I'd love to help out- I'm central Scotland (Falkirk) but can help for Glasgow also (Queen Elizabeth University Hospital NICU holds a special place in my heart after my wee boy was there in Sept for 4 weeks). I'd need to get people to help out with making hearts though as I'm not sure I know enough people to make them. Xx

I'm in SE London, don't think I could take on being in charge of sorting out a hospital but I'll happily make some hearts. Which hospitals are in need? xx

How do we find out who's covering our area. I have some crafty mum friends and am happy to make/promote

I’m in Dawlish any help needed for making hearts for Exeter nicu

If I can find some friends to help make the hearts I’ll be a CHC for one or two of the remaining NICUs x

I'm in Plymouth, any required here?

I’m in Essex, do any hospital need the hearts? I made them last year and sent them to you but I don’t mind doing some for a local hospital and send them to them directly x

I shared in my crochet group in case any of the London ladies can help. Do you need me to make and send some your way? Or do you have a Nottingham coordinator that I can get in touch with / can contact me to see if they need any hearts? I can make up a small batch I'd prefer to do quality over quantity due to me being basically a ball of stress far too much.

Hi, I am in Swadlincote which is on the South Derbyshire, East Staffordshire boarder. Does the CHC for this area need any help with making hearts?

I would like to knit some hearts for the south west- Please send details? X

I am CHC for Northern Neonatal area and am still in need of hearts. If anyone would like to send some direct to me please do xx

Hi im in somerset and id love to help x

Hello. I have PMd you. I’m based in Norwich but interested in being a CHC xx

Carly Gonsalves Lake Randip Shivdasani - might be of interest to you? X

Sandra Ranson is this something your knitting club could help with ?

"My mate is builder and just two days ago he did his missus's newborn shoot, he was there for only 10 mins and got the perfect award-winning shots then we went for a beer. It's so easy with mobiles nowadays !!" Mr S.S.

Last week I advertised my 6 week *How to Photograph your Baby* course on a local FB page. The above Mr SS scoffed at the idea of paying to learn such an apparently easy skill.
He has a point(ish)!
Photography is so much more accessible these days. The technology is easier than it's ever been however knowing what makes a good photo and applying that, is a learnt skill.
I can teach you that! I spent 7 years learning photography and a further year learning how to teach! I wont make you a professional photographer so you don't need to quit your building job... but a great baby photo in 10mins with a mobile phone is within reach!
I have 1 place left on the course.

*6 Day Baby Photography Challenge*
The Last Day
WHEN IT ALL GOES 'WRONG'
How did you get on capturing your little ones wingey, tired, yawny, grotty, cross, clingy, stompy moments?

This teary photo of Baby J was captured by mama H some time after she attended my workshop. According to mama H, J was at an animal adventure park on a cold day and spent the whole time in tears being pretty fed up with his lot whilst big sister, R enjoyed herself! Mama H said she just coudln't console him at all so thought she'd take a photo.
Now I know we don't like to see our little ones cry but I personally thinks its just as important to capture a moment like this that represents their developmental stage as it is to take photos of them sleeping/ playing etc situation. For me this is the reality of raising children.

H did a beautiful job at capturing his moment. It was a bright, sunny day and she used the light to her advantage- look at the way it just partially covers J's face. It highlights the tears and the snot (not I'm not being sarcastic!) I was thrilled that as well as capturing the moment she also had a beautiful background that gives some context to the photo. The slightly off centre composition works well - it's really nice to see a baby not in the middle of a photo.

I really hope you've enjoyed this challenge and that you can see some improvements in your photos. You are always welcome to send me the odd photo for comments and feedback.

I have space for 2 families on my *6 week baby photography course* . Get in touch for details.

The penultimate Day 5
PLAYTIME
Did you capture your little one lost in a world of playtime? Were they nursing their doolies, sucking their toes, 'helping' with dinner time, bouncing on their Jump-a -roo

This photo of little Charlotte was taken my mama Rachel quite a while ago after she attended my 2 hours baby photography workshop. I loved Rachel's bold use of background colour which looks rather gorgeous with the coloured ribbon. Her composition is perfect with the way in which little Charlotte is coming out of the corner of the photo rather than being too central. The thing that makes this photo POP though is her eyes, Rachel managed to capture a catch light is C's eyes- a reflection of light from the sun or indoor lighting. Gorgeous!

So the very last theme is:
WHEN IT ALL GOES 'WRONG'
So we all know small people are not all smiley and cute all the time and a big part of what makes them them is their wingey, tired, yawny, grotty, cross, clingy, stompy moments. Obviously as parents we love all these parts of them too (ahem!) This is what I want you to try and capture tomorrow... interpret how you will.

TOP TIPS:
Think about where you stand when taking your photo - you don't want your shadow, or even worse, your camera's shadow over your little one- check before taking the photo.
Try and see if you can get light reflected in your babies eyes for a WOW photo.

I have 2 places left on my *6 week baby photography course* starting on 20th Jan, Suitable for newborns to crawlers.Spread the word if you've enjoyed this challenge!

You have 24 hours to take the photo and send it in as a comment on the tomorrow nights post at about 8pm. I will offer brief feedback to each person to help improve your photos.

P playing at baby sensory. Little bit different as dark etc but wondered what you thought. P had fun playing anyway.

It was lovely to see this picture again today! Charlotte has just started pre-school. Time goes so fast. Still taking lots of photos and using what you taught me though xx

I almost totally forgot about this challenge, but quickly got this shot right at the end of the day.

Good photo

Day 4 OUTSIDE
Well there was no ice today but there was a gorgeous misty start to the morning which would have produced some very exciting pictures....any one get any fun shots of their little ones outside?

I took this photo of Tiny Creature quietly pondering the river. She was transfixed for about 1 minute giving me good time to get a nice photo. I was very purposeful in my composition, using the lines on the wall to lead into TC, the subject of the photo. I also made sure the wall was coming directly from the corner of the photo- these straight lines make a for a strong photo. The light was a bit flat and therefore the colours were too so I converted to B&W (I promised not every photo I take is in B&W). I increased the contrast a bit but was aware about over doing it- as it can produce shadows that we don't want. Finally I waited until people had passed to take the photo. It's not my best photo but I'm pretty pleased with it, especially considering that it was taken on my phone!!

So tomorrows theme is:
PLAY TIME
Try and capture your little one lost in a world of playtime. If they are really tiny their playtime might just be sucking on their toes! Older ones could be at the park, at the play cafe (KudaCan of course!) or at home with their toys!

TOP TIPS:
Often Playtime means toys, often toys mean bright colours. Embrace the bright colours for these playtime photos but make sure they don't distract from your beautiful children. Remove any excess clutter!
I don't often encourage the zoom function (I will always tell you to just get closer to your child/ subject) but in this case I want you to try not to interfere with your child's play and that means using a bit of zoom so they are not distracted by you and your camera.

You have 24 hours to take the photo and send it in as a comment on the tomorrow nights post at about 8pm. I will offer brief feedback to each person to help improve your photos- this is a cut down version of the type of support you'd receive on my upcoming *6 week baby photography course*

Due to A being poorly we did not venture outside today, however, could you comment on this photo instead? Taken in autumn, I was trying to capture H enjoying the leaves. I feel the image is nice but not exciting. What was I missing? How could it be improved? Thanks

From the end of last year.

Day 3 FEEDING
How did you get on taking photos of your little ones feeding today? Breast or bottle, Spoon or baby led or maybe you have older kids and you got a great photo of them chowing down...
Post your best Feeding photo in the comments below and I'll offer you some brief feedback to help improve your photos.

This photo of is of Mini Creature and me, taken by Man Beast. Now I have to say my feedback on this photo is probably going to be a bit different to usual because I find it hard to objective because I'm in it! It's a good photo to illustrate the point that as parents what we might look for in a photo might be a smiley cute baby (or a nice photo of yourself) but as photographers we are looking for technically good photos. Personally, I think it's always nice to have photos that represent both. I keep some technically crap photos because my creatures look gorgeous in them, I dont care less that the light is off and the focus is out! I'm sure you all do the same!
So from a technical point of view I love the depth of focus in this photo, mini creature and her hair swirls are in focus and I'm out of focus i the background. It conveys an apparent soft and nurturing moment whilst having good balanced light and a mainly clear background. It wasn't posed. From a personal point of view I like that my fringe looks good :)

So tomorrows theme is:
OUTSIDE
I know it's cold but let's get outside and try and capture some shots of your little ones in nature. If they are toddling or older, there are great moments to be captured of them exploring the icy leaves that are covering the ground at the mo. Or if they are tiny bring an icy leaf to them to explore with their fingers. Or perhaps capturing them snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug with a winter background scene. It can be a park, your garden or any outdoor space....interpret how you like!

TOP TIPS:
Contrary to popular opinion bright sunshine isn't the best weather to take photos- it produces harsh shadows. Slightly overcast actually works really well and can produce an overall softer image. If it is very bright then use the shade of a tree to reduce the extreme light.
Remember your background- keep them clear of clutter.
Get down on the ground at your child's eye level- it'll help you see the world from their point of view!

Feeding selfie from today. Wasn’t the easiest but still fun to do. Looking forward to hearing your comments and completing tomorrow challenge.

Today’s feeding photo. I promise I will move away from b&w soon, but I feel this shot works better like this. Again selfie which I found almost improbable to get. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Day 2 SLEEPING
I hope you had fun taking photos of your little ones catching some zzzzzz's. Post your best sleeping photo in the comments below and I'll offer you some brief feedback to help improve your photos.

This photo of gorgeous sleeping baby Jude was one that was taken by mama Hannah. She attended my first ever 2 hour Baby Photography workshop a few years ago.

This has such a soft and snugly feedling to it thanks to the soft colour tones, it makes for a timeless photo. Jude was asleep on her bed that has light coloured bedding and is in a brightly light room, this has really helped to make for a photo with beautiful and well balanced light. Anyone that has been on a photo lesson with me knows I love white on white/ light colours- it's just so appropriate for small people. The lack of colour and distraction really helps to focus the attention just where it's needed! The composition is perfect, Hannah positioned herself at the side of Jude which works well with his sideways facing head. She also got down to his height so that it is a complete side one photo. So many of us are guilty of taking photos of our little ones looking down at them!! What a scrummy little sleep face Jude has!

So tomorrows theme is:
FEEDING
Whether your baby is bottle or breast fed, spoon fed or Baby led weaned, try and capture some moments of them being nourished. The photos can show messy fun or soft, nurturing moments.

TOP TIPS:
Search Pinterest for photo ideas and make a list of all the photos you want to capture.
If you are taking photos of breast/ bottle feeding the chances are that the photos will be selfies. Nothing worse than a selfie where mama is looking one way and baby is looking another way- what ever direction the baby is looking in, mimic it. It'll give the photo a flow.
If your photo is of your little one eating food, try hard NOT to get your baby to look at the camera. The best photos are natural ones of your baby going about their everyday business. They are the moment you'll treasure!

You have 24 hours to take the photo and send it in as a comment on the tomorrow nights post at about 8pm. I will offer brief feedback to each person to help improve your photos- this is a cut down version of the type of support you'd receive on my upcoming *6 week baby photography course*

I hope you had fun taking photos of your little ones splashing around in the bath (doesn't have to be just babies!). Post your best bathtime photo in the comments below and I'll offer you some brief feedback to help improve your photos.
This Photo of baby A'maarah was taken by mama Mobeen on my first *6 week baby photography course*. I had one of those 'suck-your-breath-in' moments that I have when I see a photo that I truly think is amazing. Firstly Mobeen had cleared the clutter away so all the photo edges had clear lines and there is nothing to distract from A'maarah's cuteness. The light is even and well balanced (especially as it's inside with lights on) - B&W is very appropriate in this situation and softens the photo. Mobeen's over-the -head composition is perfect as you get to see A'maarah's squishyness and also the detail of her eyelashes- quite hard to get both. The square crop is also a winner - it sort of mimics A'maarah's position.

So tomorrows theme is:
SLEEPING
Have a go at taking some photos of your little one getting some zzzzz's. They might be in a cot, a sling, on your chest, pram, car seat etc

TOP TIPS:
Always take the photos towards the end of their sleep time so that you don't wake them!! We need the monkeys to sleep (Mini Creature I hope you are reading this!!)
Turn your flash off! Try to position the car seat/ moses basket/ yourself & baby near a bright window so you get natural light. Think about think before sleeptime (if you can!)
Try and limit any motifs/ patterns on bedding, toys and clothes. They will distract you from your gorgeous child!

You have 24 hours to take the photo and send it in as a comment on the tomorrow nights post at about 8pm. I will offer brief feedback to each person to help improve your photos- this is a cut down version of the type of support you'd receive on my upcoming *6 week baby photography course*
You can do just one of the challenges or all of them.

Can't wait to see what you come up with....

Here we go, nothing quite like the photo of Mobeen, but a quick shot of Abigail during her bath tonight!

Sorry it’s late but this is Piper in her bath last night.

Erm, I can’t see the photo?!

I can’t believe this was two years ago!!

Oh those eyelashes!

Who wants to join in on a *6 DAY BABY PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE*?
Many people tell me that they simply forget to take photos of their tiny ones and I'm hoping this will help prompt regular and gorgeous photo taking.
The idea is that each day I'll suggest a theme and give a couple of basic pointers. You then have 24 hours to take the photo and send it in as a comment on the following nights post at about 8pm (do not put a photo in the comments on this post please!) I will offer brief feedback to each person to help improve your photos- this is a cut down version of the type of support you'd receive on my upcoming *6 week baby photography course* starting end of Jan.
You can do just one of the challenges or all of them.

So tomorrows theme is:
BATHTIME
Take a photo of your little one(s) when they are splashing around and having fun watery times.

TOP TIPS: Get rid of the clutter around the bath. No need to see shampoo bottles/ toys etc.
Your camera/ phone will probably steam up at first but give your camera a couple of minute to settle in.
Most people will have their bathroom lights on but these will cast a funny colour over your baby's skin so convert your final photo choice to B&W.

Our final Christmas contribution.... we call this 'Clovekins'. It is based on a doll that we play with in our Steiner group. We could not find one available in this county so Man Beast set himself the task to make one for our littlest, Mini Creature AKA Clove. The idea is that MC can use the different pieces of material to dress the doll with- all she has to do is lay the material over the doll then pull down the cut out piece.
We got excited making this- thinking perhaps it could be a workshop offering for 2018. Then several hours later and still making we've thought better of it.

On that note, may your baubles sparkle and your log fires crackle (Thanks Adele!!) Merry festivities to you all dear beuaties.
Love Misty Makey Mama

It's scary how epic your capacity and energy for creativity is! Brilliant!

Ooh! Love this! I’m sure it could be simplified a bit for a workshop. Like forgetting the hinges or something

You made one! Looks fab. Merry Christmas xx

Fab!

Looks great! I was wondering how Manbeast had got on with making this.

Tiny Creature and I started her Christmas making months ago- I was so impressed by our organisation at the time. Then we forgot all about it until today. Gahhhhh! So we've spent most of the day weaving these two hanging thingies for her grandma's. She was suprisingly fast at weaving over and under, over and under. Considering this is 4year old appropriate makeyness I think it looks rather good. I kind of want one myself please TC! ... See MoreSee Less

That is neat! Top marks to TC. Did you find the slippers? sorry I couldn't find the other sole - it had disappeared again. I'm sure you can sort it in your makey wonderfulness. Hope they fit :)

Beautiful! I'm living vicariously through you because Ru. Does. Not. Like. Crafts. o_0

I remember doing these, we always called them God's Eyes.

Awww we used to have mini rainbow ones of these on our tree when we were kids. Way to go TC!! She has a future cottage industry there 😉 x

They look amazing! Good work tiny x

Beauties, I know we are all in the middle of our Christmas festivities but I thought it important that we talk about our 'Hearts for NICU mums on Mother's Day' 2018 Campaign 2018'.....
So hopefully you will have seen my post a month or so ago about seeking *Community Heart Champions* (CHC) to help us to manage part of the campaign at a local level. I'm thrilled to report that we have 20 CHC's across the UK who have committed to make, label, and distribute hearts to their regional Neo Natal units. This is amazing and a wonderful start however we still need many more CHC's if every NICU in the UK is to receive hearts on Mother's Day 2018.

At the moment there is no one covering the following areas:
*Central and Trent (16 NICU's in and around Nottinghan, Mansfield, Leicester etc)
*Thames valley and Wessex (15 NICU's in and around Oxford, Southampton, Reading etc)
*South East Scotland and Tayside (5 NICU's)
*West of Scotland (6 NICU's)
*London (Incluing 27 NICUs!!!!)
*Yorkshire and Humber ( a Couple of CHC"s are covering this area but need more help)

If you live roughly in these areas (or even if you don't!) and want to be a CHC then please get in touch comment below. Remember that you don't necessarily have to cover whole areas- you could share with others or just do 1 or 2 of your local NICU's if they aren't already being covered.


This is the role of a CHC:
Either on your own or with a team of people (maybe a craft group/ church group, etc)
MAKE hearts (crochet, knitted, felted etc)
LABEL hearts (after not labelling the hearts in the first year we realised how important it was for the mums who received them to know where they came from)
ORGANISE the distribution of the hearts (this will involve working directly with local hospitals or with the regional Neo Natal trusts- no mean feat!)
DELIVER the hearts either by post or in person before Mother's Day 2018

We are asking that the CHC will manage the hearts for more than their local hospital, ideally you'd take on a County or a Neo Natal Region. The amount of hearts varies massively for each region so we'd discuss how many hospitals you'd cover within a region.

PLEASE NOTE: Makey Mamas will still be asking for heart donations to cover the South West and I will be doing a separate post about that in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled if you just want to make hearts rather than be a CHC.

I'm in Ipswich, Suffolk and more than happy to crochet some hearts and help distribute? Please let me know more info x

I can't commit to being a chc but if there was a downloadable label I'd be happy to label the hearts I made prior to sending to the chc if that's helpful? I made about 200+ hearts this year and I'll bet it's a pain to label each one as you get them so if be happy to label as I go along xx

Hi. I have messaged you about being a coordinator for the Southampton area xx

I'll do it for basingstoke - nr Southampton and reading

Where can I find the pattern to make heart for your cause ?

Just curious as to whether or not this is something done in USA...

I'm still making hearts and am happy to label (once I have the right info) and then hand over to our local CHC, I can be available to help label like we did last year if that works as well. Xxx

Love it BEAUTIFUL idea and I have a Nicu to cover in the states yes I would Love a pattern!

Hi I’m in the Nottingham area and could possibly help out with central and Trent area. Do you have contacts for the NICUs in the region? Do you provide the labelling info for the co-ordinator to put on? Is there a pattern for the hearts?

I'm in Cornwall and am happy to help. Is any heart pattern ok?

I am in SE London bordering Kent if you want to message me with more details

I’m happy to make some

Now this is holistic creativity.... 4 year old Tiny Creature and I made these cute carol singers (it's probably quite obvious from the photo how to make them). I asked TC if I could share them with you, she said "yes, but they don't sing. Shall we make them sing?" So here they are singing '8 days of Hanukkah'- she has been learning about this festival at Kindy! I'm proud to say that she has inherited my voice- see if you can make it to the end!!! ...

That's so lovely, everytime she sings with me it's really quiet 😍

For the last few years I had a flurry of (mainly) men get in touch very last minute to buy vouchers for their partners for Christmas- I even hand delivered one on Christmas eve.
With my January *Photograph your Baby 6 week course* being on Saturdays it's the other way round this year! Turns out you mamas are thinking a voucher is a good plan for the man in your life. I have 2 places left on my Natural Product Making workshop and 3 for my Baby Photography course. I can sort out vouchers quickly but last day will be weds

All of these gorgeous photos were taken by families attending the last course. Hopefully some of the families who attended can tell you how much they got from it in the comments below... if FB let's them see the post that is!!!

I did the baby photography course in January with Eliza my 4 month old and loved it. Each lesson was full of easy to follow helpful hints and tips that take your standard point and shoot photography to the next level. Also, with Eliza being my second child I personally also enjoyed the opportunity to spend valuable time alone with her appreciating her every feature and focusing on capturing them on camera. Misty is a fabulous teacher and provided a really relaxed and friendly environment that I felt at ease in. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course, thoroughly enjoyable! Here’s my pic I’m most proud of (taken on my phone...no fancy camera!).

The six year week baby photography course is easily one of the best Christmas presents I’ve ever had 🙂

How much for the 6 week photography course?x

We did this course last January with our 3 month old. He loved being a very wriggly poser but we got some great shots to treasure. It gave me tips I still use now to carry on getting great photos....hes Just not quite as into posing anymore...making the advice actually more valuable! We have a lovely canvas of close ups on our wall from the course which we both love! Would reccomemd to anyone! It was also great to have access to such props and backdrops as well 👍👍👍👍

I did this course last Feb and would completely recommend. It was a lovely thing to do with my boy, I got some brilliant pictures of him and really improved my photography skills and got loads of tips I use all the time now. One of the best things is the amount of time and personal feedback Misty offers - it really makes a difference :)

Be kind Beauties...
It wont surprise you to hear that I've got high expectations on myself and others around me. It is not a trait I'm especially proud of. It particularly rears its head at this time of year when I put myself under a lot of pressure to make and make and make. I'm so single minded that I lose sight of everything including most of my human decency. My mum has even given me a Facist Dictator name; Mistolini (for those of you that don't know my real name is Misty)
Don't get me wrong I enjoy making (loved the origami santas- see last nights post!) and selfishly I really get a lot from giving my gifts but some times I do question why I bother. This cloth photo album is case and point really. It went wrong so many times and got me so cross. I raged! I made one last year as well and it was the same then. What's my point? When you see my posts, just remember that a christmas facist dictator lies underneath! Although this post sounds light hearted, it makes me sad as well. It's not all smiles and makeyness believe me!

If you want to get cross and embrace your inner facist dictator then I can post the link to the makey along below. Sigh!

It looks beautiful and I love your honesty, crafting can be frustrating 😲. Xx

Love you Misty.And your lioness. Every true life work doesn't come without inperfection. It contains all about all and that is why it is so beautiful. I feel exactly the same sometimes for my daily expectations there just general daily life work, I watch myself what I say, what I act and this reply to how I treat/ how I listens, people &animals& nature and my children so myself.But why?I think it is the great practice of human growth in achieving something for the long term to be a better loving person and practicing to shift concious mind holds a great treasure... I am loving it even though I often off road and stop in forge frustration. I have it for my crochet practice too! It is lovely to know you have it too and it makes you&your works EVEN more adorable being xxx

Looks fantastic! As do the cards. I get sewing machine RAGE every. Single. Time. I switch. The. Bloody. Thing. On. And every time I turn it off and leave it for a while and then think oh I'll make such and such, I forget. Until it starts to jam, or the thread snaps, or I can't cut straight etc. Totally relate to this. ❤️

My goodness. There are so many more things to think about when your kids go to school... christmas presents for teachers, teaching assistants, heads of year, admin staff...
I made an attempt at sorting out some of them with these soothing Ylang Ylang and Rose Bath Melts.
What do your Beauties get the teachers? Its so hard to think of something original, personal, within budget etc!!

BTW, dont worry I have saved back some bath melts for one of you Beauties for an xmas pressie

I'm making these for my girls to give to their teachers x

What blend of oils do you use to prevent these from melting at ambient temperatures, Misty?

Been making biscotti tonight! X

They look lovely. We have done Christmas biscuits, bath bombs, candles in mugs, marshmallow snowman with hot chocolate powder and this year the kids are making x-mas tree decorations made out of beads. It gets easier as the kids get older and can make more themselves. The biscuits seemed the most popular. 😄

Aw so lovely! I’m still racking my brain 😬 x

Looks lovely! Were doing cupcakes and Lily decorates the cupcake boxes too 🍰

Aw they are so beautiful..You are so inspirational Misty. We are making happy reindeer chocolate biscuits🎄 hoping to have sticky quality time with boys xxx

Wow! Such a wonderful present. I think kind words always go down a treat, people knowing they’re valued but these look amazing!!

I was the lucky winner of the bath melts last year, v moisturising :-)

We club together with other parents and then someone gets something small and lots of vouchers with it

Oh god, not even thought about that! Won't be homemade....
