Crafty Princess

Princess' mum is away on holiday in the Canary Islands at the moment and a few days after she comes home it will be her 24th birthday. So while she is sunning herself in Tenerife, I thought it was safe to enlist the help of Princess to get her presents wrapped up.
Part of her present was spending money for her holiday, but you know us mums like to have a few surprises for our 'children' to open as well so I've been buying a few bits and bobs. There's so many pretty things in the shops at the moment and it's very easy to find lovely headbands and flowers to add to your hair or clothes. And there's always make up that needs to be replaced or new colours to try. She is a very pink and girly girl, so we've chosen pink and lilac for our colour scheme. We've hand made our tags and had fun writing clues on the back of them. I popped downstairs to make lunch and when I came back, about a dozen little rhinestone gems had disappeared from a pack I had left on my desk but Princess promises me she had nothing to do with it, however I don't remember using quite so many diamond bits on the labels.
So Princess has had another secret outing and I'm sure that her mum won't be looking at my blog while she's away so I'm confident we've got away with it.
Or maybe not - does anyone know a good way of getting glitter glue out of fur ......

Horsey has been wondering about that too. Only his is manly glitter, obviously.

That sounds like a fab birthday you are preparing. That's a loving mum in action!

My girls always love 'the little bits and pieces' best of all!!!
You may have to just tell her that Princess has been partying in her absence....when the cat's away etc!!!

Do you know Deb, from the first time I saw Princess I knew she was a glitter and gem girl and a little bit naughty too. I am glad you had some help with the wrapping and tag making and the clues sound a fantastic idea.

Loving the new look blog btw.

I'm glad you're not just leaving princess to get lonely while your daughter's away! I'm sure she doesn't mind a bit of remaining glitter glue, at least it's sparkly, no? x

Is that gorgeous wallpaper you are in front of? I'm noticing decor more closely these days :-)

I'm not sure how helpful Princess has been to you, I wonder if she would be interested in Horsey's 'manly' glitter? LOL!

How did Princess's Mum like her surprise - or is she not back yet? (No answer to the glitter glue, sorry. But if you figure out how to undo damage caused to carpet by heat guns and embossing powder I'd love to hear about it...) xx
