It occurred to me that I have lots of friends and family who are incredibly talented! I thought that I should share with you their makes and so the 'Spotlight On...' was created! The first 'Spotlight On' goes to my Mother-in-Law, Joanne McClymont.
These adorable little boxes are made to any specification, with a variety of things that can be displayed inside.
Jo uses a variety of techniques to produce the displayed items. She enjoys making figures out of fimo, papercrafting celebration cakes and sewing cushions to seat other element of the design.
As you can see, Jo puts in tremendous effort in making these beautiful keepsakes, adding embelishment, co-ordinating ribbon and name/message plates.
These Keepsakes are available for sale in several shops around the Clitheroe area of Lancashire, where they can be bought pre-made or to order.
For more details, please contact me via my contact page or comment below and I will pass any queries and well wishes on to her.

We spent the weekend up in Burnley for Popa's birthday. Papa Bee wanted to take Henry, Popa's Yorkshire Terrier, for a walk around Gawthorpe Hall, a local National Trust site. Only the grounds were open as it is out of season, so we had a lovely walk around even though it was bitterly cold.

The nappies have caught up with me... none left made up so it was definately time to sort the washing out!

Last night, after he went to bed, we arranged all of his pressents ready for when he came down in the morning.
His face was a picture when he saw his Rocking Horse. I knew it would go down a treat, he is besotted with his little pony pal!
His 'tweet tweet tree' has been a favourite so far!
When we got home, we made a birthday cake together using his new cake baking set. We made a very cute Chocolate Orange cake in his tiny little cake tin and I attempted to ice it, but it was too runny and I had ran out of icing!
We spent the rest of the evening making home made pizza, which was so tasty! A very worn out two year old is now sleeping soundly in bed after a very fun day!
I hope the next year brings him as much happiness as the last.
