I was a huge fan of Miffy when i was younger so i couldn’t resist including the uber cute Miffy inspired bunny garland from Mini Eco. They even include a template so you can make your own.
It’s mother’s day in Ireland this weekend and in an effort to avoid that awful plastic wrapping you get with most shop bought mothers day cards I’m making my own. Personally I wouldn’t mind not getting a card as long as there was some gesture of appreciation, but I think my mum would be heartbroken […]
