a birthday bottle bag surprise

Due Creative Designs - bottle bags 4BYou know that feeling you get when you’ve bought someone a present but you really want to keep it yourself?  That was me at Christmas when I bought a Duo Creative Designs bottle bag for my sister-in-law at a local craft fayre.  As I deliberated over which design to choose (it was always going to be the cat but like shoe shopping you have to um and ah over all options before returning to the first pair you saw) I chatted to Tina about where the idea came from for such a fab, practical gift.   Zumba class apparently!  Turning leftover fabric from Tina’s sewing business into a handy water bottle/gym card/mobile phone carrier.Euan bottle bag collage 4B
I made a mental note to ”order bottle bags for 2014 birthdays” then realised E’s birthday is the first on the calendar.  Each bottle bag is custom made so having asked Tina to make a personalised crocodile bag I was  as  excited waiting for it to arrive as E was opening it. Like all toddlers he loves anything he can put things in, especially if it has buttons on.  He’s enjoying wearing his bag, taking his bottle in and out and, as I hoped, drinking more water as a result.

Simply message Tina via the FB page and quote ‘nipitinthebud’ (bottle bags are £8.50 + £3 for a name + P&P – free collection from Tewkesbury).  And as if that wasn’t generous enough they’re currently hosting a giveaway for a personalised bottle bag on their Facebook page.

#onefromthearchives in the days when I had time to experiment with preserve recipes and create edible gifts
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #chutneyaddict #allotmentgardening #foragersdelight #preservemaking So totally stoked to receive my #thisisbritainphotobook this morning.  My gut feeling was right - bedtime stories with our Lumie bed bug was the photo chosen by #rankin for inclusion.  Overjoyed to see my beautiful boys in print

I say grew but I actually just forgot about them and they did this all by themselves!
