Greetings lovely friends & readers
Happy Shiny New Year to you All ... & Welcome to 2022 💙
I've felt so shattered since my return from Mum's - I've had to have Nana Naps each day & certainly slept through the New Years entrance. The Mr pointed out to me yesterday that it was an incredibly busy lead up to Christmas & now that it is over with, sometimes you just have to rest & re-group.
Each Christmas I usually include a Lego set for the toy content of my Grandsons Stockings. This year Alec's parents informed me that he no longer played with his Lego - but what he was Very Into was Gemstones.
Luckily I was able to go online & buy Gemstones from a variety of sellers, but when they arrived they just looked like a bunch of coloured stones. I found some voile bags & printed out labels for each set of rocks, then found this pale grey box & was able to make a label for this from some wooden cutouts I found in my craft drawer.
I love this photo above left - you can see the joy on Alec's face when he opens his Gemstone box & in the next pic he is busy yelling "Sid - look at my Gemstones!!" ... however Sid has just opened his new Lego pack & could not care less about any old Gemstones 😊 ... Just precious memories.
