This week's smiles....week 303

We've reached the end of another week and I'm here to find a few smiles to share with you.  I've had very few customers through my door since Christmas and my Mojo is still enjoying his holiday but I've managed to find a few things to do and many of them have made me smile....

You all know I have little Theo to play on a Tuesday, well this week was the first early shift back after Christmas for me so I was up in the dark at silly o'clock and a really excited little man arrived soon after 7 am.  We had a wonderful morning filled with lots of smiles and his mummy collected him about 1.15 pm.....It was a long morning for me and this was Theo just 2 mins down the road.....don't your just love a sleeping child?....I'd call that a very successful morning wouldn't you?

Theo's little friend Grace has just had her second birthday and Gina asked me to make her a few peg dolls like the ones I made Theo.....I love painting them so I didn't need asking twice.

I painted 4 little extra ones...2 little boys and 2 little girls so that Theo and Grace can have a set each.

I'm sure they will have a lot of fun with those and it was a lovely thing to do while my Mojo was on holiday.  

I've also spent time getting my business records up to date....they were very neglected so, even though they aren't all finished yet, it's a lovely feeling to get on top of some of them......especially when I've added up numbers for my Memory bears and now know I've made 190!!!  That's certainly something that has made me smile especially when I know they have given so much pleasure to all they have been made for.....I've had a lot of really lovely feedback from the ones I made before Christmas and that's always lovely isn't it?

Well that's all from me for this week.  Please leave me a little message so I know you've called in and if at all possible then please link up to your own smiles below....it's always lovely to see what's been making your smile too.

I think Theo looks exhausted. You played too hard with him, Annie (grin).

190 bears? Wonderful. When you do something, you DO it and bigtime, too. Reminds me of all the little girl dresses you made. Hopefully you are getting PAID for the bears, unlike the dresses you donated so freely and lovingly.

Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend.

Wow! You have Theo from 7 a.m.! That is a long day! Does he go to a childminder the other days? or does your daughter only work the one day?
I love those little 'peg people'. I saw them on your Pinterest page which I follow. Amongst the group you made I spotted Wonder woman and a doctor, but were wondering what the others were. A thief and a police person. Who is the bearded character? A priest? Also I am surprised you can still get pegs like that in the UK. I haven't seen wooden pegs for ages.
I hope your mojo comes back soon, but I can totally understand you are still in holiday mode.
Thank you so much for the card. As you can read in my blog, I have received it and absolutely love it. That must have taken you so much time. Thank you so much. I will treasure it.
Keep smiling,

Well done Annie that's some bears. Loving the little peg dolls too they are so sweet. I've got some pegs but can't decide what to do with them, maybe Steampunk people....what do you think? Sleeping children....that's good for me Lol! I noyiced Lisca mentioned about the pegs but of course there are loads now in Hobbycraft and the Range. Can't hang about today, got stuff to do but you'll understand when you see my blog so will visit the others later. Have a great day and big hugs, Angela xxx

My word, Annie, the modern car seats are a feat of engineering! He looks so relaxed and he’s clutching a blankie? Your peg people are so cute and Theoe will have fun playing with his new ones too. Happy weekend.

Hi Annie, I'm back in blogging land. Feeling a goodly bit better but, as you can imagine, I've had little to smile about. You're right, there's nothing quite like a sleeping child to make us smile - they look so innocent. Love the little peg dolls too. Hope to be back to normal next Friday but, given the events of this week, I'm not holding my breath! Hugs, Ellie xx

Lucky you - I may have a grandchild in a few years - cross your fingers! He looks pooped. I bet you were too! The little set of peg dolls are precious! Have great week, Lindart #26
