Aidan had a good day at playschool today and he is now napping. i've just finished all my Hari Raya cards (will get shots of them later) and now preparing myself for Aidan's 2nd birthday this 21st. i'm gonna make some favours for all his friends at school and i'm gonna give a small gift to all the carers, bake some cookies for the kids and a cake for us.
Speaking about Aidan, here's a little project i did for his room - a wall deco.
Eversince he was in my tummy, i could picture the things i'd do for his room. and this was one of them! i used some blank canvas and added textures on them, creating his name.
I ate a lot of ice lollies when i was carrying him 2 years ago (my favourite was this one called raket - ais krim roket in malay!!) you know... the one with red, green and yellow!! anyway.. just to be reminded of that, and that one hot long summer aidan was inside of me, i used some ice cream sticks for this one.
I am so loving fabrics these days and used some dark blue denim for 'i' and frilled the edges. and since i have tonnes of papers and buttons, i used them both for the next 'a' (this was my favourite!).
and as for the 'd' i used some soft frilly thing (wired) - sorry i dont know what its called, i got at the craft section at one of the shops. and last but not least, i painted the 'n' using some acrylic olive paint.
And there we have it... A-i-d-a-n... in all textures - wood, fabric, wired frilly thing, paper and paint! good for his sensory!!
I must go now.. have to make use of my 'free' time as aidan's still napping... have to shoot those raya cards... till my next post!
