I hope you had a wonderful time this summer that is prepare to leave us and that offered here a good taste of its propreties and so I'm already looking ahead to the new upcoming season.
I've been busy doing everything and nothing at the same time this summer. Planing a lot of new things and the holidays made out of me a bad blogger :-) I hope soon will be better now, that I'm reinvigorated and freshly inpired.
The inevitable leg of every summer is the Kian's birthday, Yeasterday was the big day and I had knights and princess all arround the castle :-) Everything started with gifts for a not so much little boy in a cardboard handmade castle....
The garden was ful of medieval tents and a cardboard castle for the kids to play arround. ..
A misterious wizard left a message for all the kids and it was talking about somekind of treasure...
They had to put the heads together to unravel the essence of the messages....
They found a treasure chest. I've made some cardboard shields, swords and crowns and prepared some Sizzix die cuts for them because it's nice every child can make in the way he or she wants.
