Friday faves | The birthday edition

At 11.18pm today, my little girl turns one. I truly can’t believe it. As clichéd as it sounds, it feels like only yesterday that I met her for the first time when the midwife placed her on my chest, red and wrinkled and bawling her eyes out. As the weather gets colder, those memories of

Make and Tell prints now on fabric!
