The gift of giving...


Once upon a time there was a little girl named Steph. She had organised a big Alice in Wonderland themed party for her 30th Birthday but sadly the stars just didn't align on the day. She felt ever so sad.

Michelle, a very special friend who lived far far away was "so sure it was beautiful and wonderful and perfect". It broke her heart to know that the birthday girl wasn't spoilt on her special day.

Over the following week Steph received some beautiful gifts in the mail including a pair of damn fine purple high heel shoes named Poppy. Steph felt extremely spoilt and special.

A couple of months later Steph knew that Michelle really wanted to have a baby shower but to organise one when Michelle was expecting her 10th baby would be a huge feet in itself. Steph thought long and hard. She decided to ask her friends to help put together a special baby shower hamper filled with handmade goodies and more.

Steph had goose bumps and knew that this was the perfect way to spoil Michelle who had been in and out of hospital and was truly 'over it!' If Steph could take Michelle's mind of being pregnant and all the not so wonderful things that came with her pregnancy and make her smile instead of feeling uncomfortable, then that was what she was going to do.

Below are all the goodies which were sent to Michelle this week. You can check out her reaction on her blog HERE too.
