Crafting and Baking with the Rascal

The long weekend was dedicated to baking and crafting as well as my daughter's first visit to the dentist. She asked the dentist, Mr Lee, was whether he was a good person, after that she allowed him to count her teeth. I have to say that she was very well behaved, unlike her Mum who was terrified of the dentist and had to be dragged screaming and kicking. Hee! Hee!
I made some chocolate walnut brownies and strawberry fresh cream roll. Both so yummy. Due to our new venture I will be doing a lot more baking from now on.
I wanted to do some crafting with my daughter this weekend to keep her away from the Nintendo and Television. She is still too young to start knitting and sewing. So I got some ribbons, craft glue, a piece of fabric, a picture frame and some buttons together and we made this:
I made sure that my Husband got rid of the glass pane first, we then stuck the fabric and ribbons onto the cardboard. It was my daughter's idea to stick the buttons onto the frame and now she has a pretty frame to clip all her hairclips. This frame is inspired by this book, which we originally bought to get some ideas for her bedroom.

Sounds like you've been having a lovely time (apart from the dentist, obviously!). Your baking looks absolutely amazing! And that frame you made with your daughter is really cute - what a great idea for storing all those hairslides. We can never find a matching pair around here!

The photo frame is so cute, your daughter is a craftster in the making, and the book is a great idea.

Please post more pictures of your lovely baked goods, if I cant eat them I might as well look at them :)

I also like the look of your childrens room book. If I did read one I would be tempted to design - not that I have enough on my plate!

Love the hairclip organiser - what a brilliant idea!! My daughter could do with one of those to add some order to her hair accessory collection!! Your swiss roll looks scrummy...
