My darling little Miss Blondie is 6. She is 6 years and 1 week young. I couldn't do this post on her actual birthday as I was racing around cleaning, baking, prettying things up for a little ol' birthday party for her little ol' besties. I am now only recovering from the flu or maybe it is post party stress disorder. I always imagined before children that I would LOVE hosting their parties, truth be told.....................I don't! I love the idea of it but the reality sends me into a bit of a spin. I don't do party games and the thought of a house full of kiddies screaming makes me want to hide in the bathroom with a bottle of wine for company. Don't get me wrong, I do the parties but the games NO. We do crafty parties instead!!! Sounds worse I know but it works for me. Enough about me................ Little Miss Blondie.She is our middle child in every sense of the word... She has fought from the moment she arrived to be noticed. How could we not, she was beautiful and oh so serene............to look at. Not so on the ears! She has always been over the top in every way, happy, sad and cranky. Even her taste in clothes is over the top, I love it! Why wouldn't you mix every colour and pattern imaginable into the one outfit!
We call her Passion Pops, so passionate in every way.
I can't believe my little darling is already 6. She is starting to read and write and be a big girl. She is funny and silly, she is caring and loving, she is popular, she is stubborn and disorganised but mostly she is my special little honey who I love lots and lots of muches.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
