Make a Hope Softie!

Can you sew, knit, crochet, felt.....? Make a little softie for a child to cuddle and be-friend, in a time when they most probably have nothing familiar around them.
Lots of families are sheltering now at emergency centres and something little like this would be soooo comforting! Don't you think?
Head on over to Steph's blog and grab all the details.

Sunshine for our Sunshine state

At the moment I'm by myself at home and have had time to reflect on the devastation in Queensland. I think a bit of sunshine from our hearts needs to be sent to that part of our sunny country.
A couple of years ago, you may remember, I was running Rainbow Comfort Packs for the Children effected by the Victorian Bush fires. It was close to home, so became automatic for me to do it.
My questions to you all are:
1. Do you feel you want to help in some way, but don't know how or have the funds?
2. If you remember the Rainbow Comfort Packs, do you think you'd like to contribute to this idea again?

A refresher or to briefly enlighten those who don't know what I'm talking about when I mention Rainbow Comfort Packs, read about them here, when we were doing them for the Vic. Bush fires.
If this begins again, there will be more control as to what goes into the packs and better co-ordination with what we need etc.

Anyway, please leave your thoughts, ideas and links to auctions etc that are raising funds for this cause.
Stay safe. Mon x

Yellow Submarine

I loved (and still do actually!) the movie Yellow Submarine by The Beatles. In fact Mr bpab and I collected the figurines when they came out. The girls have not been allowed to 'play' with them and thus reside in a giant cardboard box on top of a cupboard. ONE day we will get them out and re-enact the movie, but for now.....

Look up you tube for Yellow Submarine video clips, actually better still, get a copy of the movie and just sit down with the kiddies and watch it. Blow their little minds.
