Well here he is all kitted out on his maiden journey.
I was a little frightened of pedalling but I guess that is to be expected.
He soon got to grips with it.
Hopefully we’ll have him up and running in no time at all.
Whether you are Egg Hunting, bunny hopping, decorating paste eggs, having an Easter Parade, decorating an Easter hat or stuffing your face with Easter eggs it is a time for celebration.
Easter is a Christian festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day after his crucifixion so many will attend sunrise services to give thanks.
I always think of Easter as a family time, we like to give chocolate treats (sometime eggs) and as a child I often got new shoes as an Easter gift.
This year for Jack we have bought him a new bicycle something ridiculous as an Easter gift but he needed a new one and we are eager to take him out cycling with us.
I can’t wait to see him on it.
If you are decorating Paste eggs today, here are just a couple of my favourite tutorials.

It has been quite some time since I did sewing on a card, mostly as I don’t get much time to do it but also because I forget how nice it looks.
Today I set up the Mini Janome sewing machine and gave this image the treatment it deserves.
Image coloured with Copic markers and chalk pencils.
I found the perfect bit on chipboard sentiment to go with the card.
The tension was not perfect on the thread but it still works.
And a couple of these crochet blossoms just finish it off nicely.
Back in stock real soon, I have just found out that I will be back at Create and Craft on Thursday 4th April for two shows the first one starting at 12 noon, so get your lunch ready early and have a TV Dinner and we will be there on your screens to entertain you.

Our jack breaks up from nursery for Easter on Thursday and we thought it would be nice to give his teachers a little something back for all their care and hard work this term.
So I got out the Silhouette Portrait and knocked up a little school house that we will fill with chocolate mini eggs for them.
So easy too, I bought the template from the silhouette site.
I had a wonderful Birthday on Saturday.
A Kiss from my favourite boy
A massive bouquet from my favourite fellow.
Pandora charms from my favourite girls.
And another bouquet from my daughters partner Charlie.
Ribeye steak for dinner, loads of cards and some cash too.
It was the perfect day.
I lovingly coloured her with Copic Markers and Chalk Pencils, I distressed all of the papers to make the edges raggy tied a bow in the corner with a fabulous button from Dainty Paperie and at the top corner added some poppy’s and blossoms and some die cut leaf design.
So today is my Birthday. I think I’ve come a long way from this picture below.
Chris asked me what I wanted for my Birthday and I told him I didn’t want anything, I can’t think of a thing I want and that's the truth, I used to complain at my parents when they did that but I think you get content with what you have and buy what you need so I totally understand it now.
I do however intend on having a fat day ha ha! maybe even a chocolate day but we’ll see.
Oh I am so so ready for the summer months, a bit of warmth to the bones and some sun on your back, what more could you want?
Such fun to stuff with favourite treats.
its made at the bat of an eyelid, very quick to make up.
I stuffed mine with mini chocolate digestive packets but it could have been a gift box or good for your treats to get our little ones eating healthy snacks.
