Assalamu Alaikum everyone!
Firstly, we hope you all had a lovely Eid and that you all enjoyed yourselves, insha'Allah. We helped our Mum make a nice, yummy breakfast spread, enjoyed our simple handmade gifts and played charades as a family, masha'Allah.
In todays post we will be showing you the handmade gifts we received. So let's begin!
Sumayyah made lots of things, masha'Allah. She made our Mum and Dad these cute little hearts from felt...
...a painting with Zainab for our Dad...
...these adorable key rings for Hanifah, Maryam and Zainab...
...and an abstract cheetah drawing for Maryam, masha'Allah.
We love her creative side!
Our Mum made us all something too. She made Hanifah and Maryam these beautiful "explosion" boxes!
We love the different patterned cards.
And zines for Zainab and Sumayyah.
Zainab's is a unique, geometric-shaped one...
...and Sumayyah's is the square one.
And lastly... this present we all worked on (Hanifah, Maryam, Zainab and our Mum). It took half a month of continuous plotting, writing, creating, drawing, painting, designing, and much more, subhana'Allah!!!
But when it was finished we all couldn't wait for Eid to show Sumayyah her gift.
Alhamdulillah when she got it she was very very happy. It's the sequel to an original story we wrote two Ramadans ago. You can click here to see the first book. It is a spin off of a popular fairy-tale, can you guess which one?
Oh, we forgot to mention, Maryam started baking three days before Eid to gift us all with Brownies, Welsh Cakes, Gingerbread and a Fruit Cake. Masha'Allah they were all delicious!
Well that is all we have for this week. We would love to know what little things you did to make your Eid special. May Allah keep you all safe and in good health, Ameen.
Until next Friday, insha'Allah.
Love and wasalaam,
