On the weekend, my niece turned 13!
Aaah, I remember when she was born! I was pregnant with my first child, unsure about being a new mother, I was still anxious and undecided about things like whether to use cloth nappies or disposable nappies. And yet, I was so excited that my child would have a similar-aged cousin. Seems like a lifetime ago :)
Before we headed out to the 13th birthday party, I prepared a giftcard (that’s what she wanted), but I just felt so… lazy, cheap, thoughtless and uninspired!
I thought I could do better.
So I crept around my garden and picked some simple flowers, bundled them up, stuck them in a clean mayonnaise jar, wrapped them up with some brown paper, brown string and voilà – a cute and simple gift!
I’m so happy with how they turned out.
I had lots of left over flowers, so I made one for my house too.
Hope you all have a gorgeous day!
