2016 The Sibling Portrait Project at LadyBug Home

In 2016, we will be joining in for another year with the "The Sibling Portrait Project" that was created by Lucy of Dear Beautiful. On the 15th of each month, I join a group of bloggers to document the very special relationship between brothers and sisters. This also creates a visual timeline of how quickly our children are growing. My favourite photos are of the first photo of a baby joining a family and sometimes promoting an only child to "Big Sister" or "Big Brother".

Search #SiblingsProject on Twitter and Instagram or follow @siblings_photos on Instagram to view the monthly collection of photos.

The Me and Mine Project
JULY 2016
Big Sister and Little Brother are just too quick to catch sometimes for a perfect photo. I was hoping to capture their 4th of July outfits from Grandma and Papa but it was very tricky. Big Sister has gotten to spend some time at her Big School. Summer Holidays are almost here and then it will be graduation the end of August at the Day Nursery that she has attended for 3 1/2 years. She loves practicing her letters and randomly counting to 20.

The Home Life Project - July 2016

Joining Clare from Maybush Studio with her "Home Life Photography Project - July 2016".  This monthly photography project involves documenting your daily life for one day per month.

DATE: Saturday, July 2nd and Sunday, July 3rd, 2016

I decided to document the whole weekend because it was filled with new adventures but also reflection of how quickly my children are growing. We started Saturday with a session of running around the backyard and digging in the sandbox. While my son had his first haircut on Friday, my daughter has only had about one inch cut from her hair in her whole life. I love seeing her blond baby curls at the end of her long hair.

Painted Vase and Glass Scented Candles with Pinty Plus Chalk Paint Spray

Another month of being inspired by the amazing colour range of Pinty Plus Chalk Paint Spray from Novasol Spray UK. This month, I wanted to use the spray paints on glass and try a couple new colours.

Make It By The Book - Plastic Bead Bowl Project

My daughter requests to start painting or crafting shortly after finishing her breakfast most days and so I am always looking for new craft projects. One of the best resources of ideas I discover recently was the Make it by the Book (Craft Book) from Parragon Books. As a member of the Book Buddies team, I made a special request to get a copy of this book and I was not disappointed in the contents. There are 80 craft projects that all very creative and use different materials.

Surprise Indoor Picnic Lunch - National Picnic Week

June 11 - 19th, 2016, is National Picnic Week and we have been wishing for sunshine so we could have a picnic in the backyard. Unfortunately, we are having a typical British early summer weather with burst of sunshine but mostly rain and clouds.

My daughter loves having a picnic and especially if it inside on the living room floor where she can invite all your cuddly friends. I thought I would surprise her with picnic lunch. My sweet husband took my Daughter and Son off to the grocery store while I quickly headed to the kitchen to create food that would be perfect for little hands.

Creating a Rainbow Hundreds and Thousands Cake from ASDA for Under £5

Since both my children have birthdays that are within a month of Christmas, we celebrate their half birthdays. This week is my son's 18 Month birthday and so we head off to our local Asda looking for a colourful cake that would perfect to celebrate his birthday.
Lots of children character cakes have soft icing but I personally prefer buttercream frosting. Looking around the cakes we loved the Asda Rainbow Jazzie Cake. This rainbow layers of sponge and white chocolate buttercream with Hundreds and Thousands (aka rainbow round sprinkles) is very fun and reasonable priced at £12.00. Loved it but serves 20+ people. For our family of four this cake was too big.
