°•♥ * ♥•° Lourenco's gifts and being outside °•♥ * ♥•°

Thank you all for your lovely comments.
I'm thankfully better. :))
I stopped with the morphine, only have a muscle relaxant at night, but reducing on that too. : /

I can move my head all way's without much pain, and I can do what I want again..
Only my mood for crafting is low. but that will come back =)). So happy it was for short the heavy pain, I;m not out yet but that will come.

As you all know my sweet friend Nia has a cute little baby boy. ♥
As his Dutch Auntie I made him some gift. Now that they have arrived and she has shown then on this and this blogpost. I can show them here too.

In the time she was pregnant of often talked about it and what she liked, what she wanted to have, and what she didn't could make..
My ears where WIDE open =))))

I made a pinboard on my pinterest for the baby, Nia liked is so much togheter with Valérie, so I enterend them, and togheter we gathered many idea's
Some things she made her self or are on her to-do list!!

But....... she has no 72 hours in a day

Wanne see them?? 
I'm still in love with them and I now Nia is too.

The elephant was a pin I thought of all off us.
Nia told she loved it, but is was one of her skills to make one .... ( whahaha ... she can make it everything, but I love making toys like this) . She picked out the color of the fabric.
So she know she would get this gift.. but didn't thought she would get two, a mommy and a baby

Aren't they the cutest!!

When Nia told me she was pregnant I send a little gift.
A sleeping toy

She liked it so much, so I thought lets make another one but a bit different and with blue in it.
Because when I send the above I didn't know yet it would be a boy!

 Isn't is a cutie too???
Baby Lourenco with cuddle like crazy with his 2 new friends, this one and the other white one!!
I like this one that it have a other color on the back then on the front ♥

My best winning gift is the felt name.
I knew Nia would liked to make one but I also know that she wanted to make so much that she wouldn't have the time.
So asking what she liked, looking at what she making, looking at the colors didn't made it hard to choose how to make it!

 She loved ducks, many years before she was pregnant she mafde a baby set with ducks.. so that wasn't hard to think of to make.. but the patten.. I didn't found anything that liked a bit what on my mind.
But I finally made it!! and it's perfect.

She told me she liked bears too. I saw this bears go by often, liked it so much.
I knew Nia would like it too.. so draw it and sewn it too
Added a cloud and some stars and the total name in felt was done!!
I really love the outcome.
The lettertype.. the colors and all the extra sweeties!!

 The total photo is so sweet!!
Gifts made with love , send with love and recevied with love, go look at this post of Nia

Sweetie, enjoy your gifts!!!

Yesterday was a awesome beautifull Spring day

Kids where playing, hubby was working outside ( I had some jobs for him) and he helped out neighbor.
So I was working in the garden ( don't worry I was taking it slow!!) =)))

I made a beautifull collage

A carrot cake and a muesli-cookie.

I love the pic that Noah is jumping on the trampoline, while trying too jumping rope ( what didn't work, but the pic is still very cool!!)
Look at my beautifull tree al in bloom!!

Only beautifull pictures in this post!!!
I'm a happy girl!!

Oh, your gifts for Nia's little one are so special, Annette! I'm amazed at the felt name--just perfect!! What size is it? It looks so small, but I can't really tell from my computer screen. I know Nia was just thrilled with your lovely gifts.

So glad the kids are loving being outside again and what a relief to hear your neck is better. I had that once and it is really, really painful. Take care now and don't make any sudden movements with your hear...

Have a great week, my friend!

Glad to hear that you are recovering nicely.

Your gifts for Lourenco are so adorable, especially the personalized name banner. He is really surrounded by cuteness now!
