Colourful 'Gifts of Love'

I've got something sooo exciting to show you!  Just take a looksie at these fabulous crayon rolls... 

Are they not fabulous?!!  My girls desperately want one each.  But not these ones.  No, these ones are destined for Christchurch for the 'Gifts of Love' appeal and were very generously crafted by a wonderful NZ lady named Margaret - thank you very much!  The little children are going to love these for their art work.

These very cute taggie blankets arrived via Cat.  I love how colourful and cute they are - check out the little ducklings!  Thank you so much Kaite from Australia!  Some special little people will be so lucky to have one of these in bed with them.

I have lots of other wonderful goodies to show you soon.  I picked up a couple of boxes from Cat on Wednesday that are full of gifts.  But I'm running short of time right now.  Instead I will leave you with a funny picture No.4 has done.  Don't you adore little kids art?  This is Daddy and the cat from over the fence.  (Daddy is on the left!!!)

Right, must off and cook dinner!  Have a great day today.

Hullo Sarah, oh these crayon rolls are so cute. Love the drawing too. Kids artwork is priceless, I have a huge stash of my boys artwork that is dated and kept each year. I will be posting my little package to you tomorrow (Monday) so keep an eye out for it very soon. Gosh I hope it gets to you in time. Have a wonderful week. You are a very special lady in my eyes. Thank you.

Great picture. And I could easily tell that dad has whiskers and kitty has ears. Although I suppose the reverse is true, too. :)

They look so nice together in that box! Makes you want to colour and draw something right now :)
The kids art made me laugh out loud. i remember my girls drawing their daddy or/and brother. They always drew certain very distinctive and huge pieces so there would be no mistake who was who *lol* I can still see my MIL raising her brows when they made a drawing for her...
