Granddads’s Birthday

Hello gorgeous people of the tube land and interweb…. Tis been a mental 10 days! The ol laptop had a minor meltdown one mé féin forgot to uninstall my Security software…Rule Number 1 ALWAYS UNISTALL OLD SECURITY SOFTWARE!!!! What I am working on at the moment, is breaking a sweat at least 6 times a week doing the Jillian Michaels 30min Shred I have hectic few months ahead, CraicCon, SITC & a wedding in Doolin!!! Sessions will be had!  And giddy with excitement to be nominated for Social Media Personality with the Irish Blogger Association…now enough of that nonsense on with the Blog!!!! One of this weeks Vlogs a one take of My New Addiction Red Matte Lips & First Impressions Estee Lauder Illuminating Primer


My father turns 65 this week, and tis fairly difficult to find anything original for him that doesn’t involve new socks or bottle of Jameson!!!! But what with that lovely ‘Spring’ weather we’ve been having over the Easter Hols I thought an Arts & Crafts session was in order. So off to Dunnes Stores in search of plain Apron & Oven glove…bare with me, then on to Art & Hobby for some plain coloured cards, some fabric inks in variety of colours and a half price canvas.


We got the Mini Shuiligans hands (clothes & kitchen table) covered in bright fabric paints, pink, white and yellow! Covering the front of the apron in an almost ‘sticky hand print’ design and then I was tasked with writing Granddads Little Helpers (I’m not even gonna lie I had to do this sooooo slowly I figured I’d make a spelling mistake) Then whilst the Mini Shuiligans were covered in paint, lets keep going more sticky hand prints on the canvas. Twas perfect til the Bee dragged her finger through the word Birthday….but I’m sure Granddad won’t mind!


Then we’ve done this for years bought two contrasting colours of card & the girls adore them with Birthday Stickers, some fuzzy balls, sparkles & this year some random cats and moustaches. The whole afternoon of Birthday Crafts was amazingly messy and sticky I loved it the Mini Shuiligans loved it, fingers cross the Granddad ‘Loy loves it tomorrow.


Hope everyone has an amazing Easter, don’t forget to head over to The Shuiligans Channel and check us out. Let me know your go to Arts & Crafts with the kids on rainy days! Catch you next week, same bat time same bat place
