Zarif's firsts

Z's school is having a birthday do for him next week. School's asked me to provide them with some notes on his progress over the years. 'Key' milestones, if you like. Decided to scrap on some firsts in his life to date.

(he was just over a year old in the photo - sometime after Aug ' 04)

the surprise birthday brunch

A late entry this is.

Had a small surprise birthday brunch at the house for the hubs.
But small as it was, I just had to make a lil invitation (even if it was only circulated through email). :-)

The lil 'voucher' made for birthday dude.

And a mini detail on the paperbag containing his other gifts from me.

And yes... design may look familiar as they currently frame my blog. And yes too... teal, choc brown and olive greens are my signature colours. As much as I try to 'run away' from them, they just keep calling out to me. :-)

Did a hundred of these invites for my dad. A 'lil' function to be held this weekend at the house. Honouring the 3 generations - my dad, my dad's son and my dad's son's son.

mini monograms

Two 4 year olds. A boy and a girl. Classmates of the Z. Both share the same birthdate, parents decided on a joint birthday party for them. Z and I couldn't make it to the party though (nausea got in the way).

Made these for the birthday boy and girl anyhow.

A pair of acrylics on canvas for a pair of sibs. Kids' mom and I were housemates in Croydon UK (I was starting my GCSEs, she was doing her A-Levels) - incidentally, the very first friend I met and made in the UK, back in Sept ' 94. Now our kids are on each other's party guest lists. :-)
