She would not put on her gloves but obviously was quite chilly as she let us tuck her up warm in her pushchair for the walk home. What a way to travel, I wish there was room in there for me.
She loves the little waterfall and the ducks.
On Sunday we woke up to a light dusting of snow,which Daisy had not seen before. When we were up and dressed she told me she wanted to go into the garden....I thought to look at the snow. I insisted she wrapped up warmly and put on her welly boots. She took me by the hand and led her Nanna outside. Although I showed her the snow she had other things on her 2 year old mind.....yes she was leading me to Nanna's studio and some crafting!
Brrr it was very chilly but how could I say no to my little sweetheart? We went into my chilly studio, put on the heater and immediately Daisy spotted my trays of distress inks. I suggested she chose some colours and we would have a go at swooshing some distress colours onto some watercolour card. She helped spritz the ink with water and when I said I would take a photo put on her serious concentration look....LOLOL!
More serious crafting faces ;0) We also added some embossing powder which she loved...she stamped D for Daisy with an alphabet stamp.
and more embossing around the edges.
I loved this....so simple but so beautiful. Now you are wondering where the "Simple HeArt" comes into my blog title...well sadly Daisy got this ready to take home and then it got left behind on the dining room table, together with a few of her Daddy's bits. As I am not seeing her for a couple of weeks I decided that I would make her unique piece into something for her and send it in the post. There is nothing like getting real mail is there?
As I looked at her creation I could see so much love there that I decided I had to make this into a HeArt wall hanging for her.
I added a couple of Nanna handmade elements...another embossed foil heart (to represent love from Nanna) and a die cut and inked flower to remember Nanna's garden.
Here it is;
I added some lace for it to be hung up by..Daisy lace of course and finished it off with a little mauve heart brad. I have posted it off to my little sweetheart.
Now the thing that really amuses me in that Daisy has actually used the colours of her jacket (mauve), tights (blue) and the bottom of her welly boots (red) with just a little bit of green...could that be the grass in the park. Now I love to colour coordinate my Moments...do you think she has started early ;0) ?
I would like to enter my HeArt wall hanging into the following challenges;
PaperArtsy Hearts I was inspired by Leandra's great intro especially the primitive simple hanging hearts she showed.
Crafty Ribbons anything but a card
Crafty Boots ribbon or lace
Pixie's snippets playground 2/3 #212 I used a snippets of card for my die cut flower and a snippet of lace for the hanger.
Noor anything goes
Bunny Zoe 3/3 hearts
The Artistic Stamper anything goes
Stamping sensations 3/3 anything goes with dies
Crafting from the heart anything goes
Crafty friends anything goes
Simon says stamp Mondays best friends Daisy is my very best crafting friend (and granddaughter)
So perhaps I when I craft with Daisy I should call her my crafting SweetHeArt....I can see we are going to have such fun over the years. She must be a very serious crafter as even I would not have gone out to craft in my studio on Sunday morning....brrr!!
Keep warm, it is very chilly here but no more snow so far. I really hope it stays clear for tomorrow as we will be 31 floors up the Shard enjoying my Hb's birthday lunch. Of course my camera will be joining us too. It's been a glorious cold but sunny day here today, this was my back garden at sunset....
Thanks for visiting, keep warm.
Bye for now,
