Reading is essentially a solitary activity, and I enjoy it that way.

An Art Desk for Piglet and a Rainbow Loom for Snubnose

by

When my birthday rolls along, it almost always mean major shopping expenses. This is the one time of the year I let my inner shopaholic loose buying gifts for Snubnose and Piglet spending money that I wouldn’t normally think of spending on them.

This habit of shopping for them on my birthday started because Snubnose would pout that she didn’t get anything when I was being swamped with gifts (this was when she was very young), and so to avoid making her feel bad, I would get her a little something something. Very soon it developed into a ritual. Then Piglet came along, and of course, I had to get him something as well.

This year though, I was feeling in a real celebratory mood, and so went all out with my gifts for Snubnose and Piglet. I really think the best birthday present is seeing their happy faces while they tear open the packaging of their surprises 😀 .

Here’s an update on what I got them. Both of them loved their gifts, and the quality of both these products was so absolutely fantastic that I had to share these finds on the blog.
