Welcome! I’m Ann, a home-educating mama who lives in the New Forest with my husband Kevin, our 5 year old daughter Phoenix, our two year old son Forrest and our cat Muad'Dib.

We love spending the afternoon painting and just playing around with different techniques and supplies without worrying about the end result. Since it is Spring and flowers are blooming all around us I thought it would be fun to have a slightly Spring themed session and play with a bunch of different ways we can make flowers.
This was completely Nixie's idea and what a great idea it was! Pears and dandelion make the perfect combination and with the leftover leaves we made some crisps!
We've been reading and learning about the rainforest so Nixie wanted to make a parrot and I came across this incredibly easy and super quick little paper craft project. It took no more than 10 min, the only part that was time consuming was cutting out her hand prints.
Lilac trees are one of my absolute favourites, the smell takes me back to my childhood in Sweden, I remember seeing them in bloom everywhere and I remember always finding some to bring home to put into a vase so I couldn't be more pleased to have some growing right next to us.
I had been wanting to make this for a while and now that it is Spring and the flowers are blooming everywhere I turn I decided it was finally time to make it. This was really such a fun project for all of us, Forrest & Nixie loved picking them and pressing them when we got home. And what I love especially about this little creation is that it will always remind me of this time in our lives.
