My little girl’s homework last weekend was to create a poster about Fairtrade. I think she did a great job. The only thing that was missing was we ran out of time to write about child slavery and how they are mistreated by farmers.
Did you know that the farms get only 5% whilst the trader gets 70%. This results in child slavery where children are forced to work for nothing. I love chocolate but I think next time I buy some I will be thinking very carefully about which company is putting children first before their greedy huge profit! And even though we are struggling financially ourselves I will buy some Fairtrade chocolate to save a child’s life.
Let me leave you with a little Easter story I created for Jodie to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. It is called Sunset Bunny the Easter Fairy. Sadly this story is no longer on iTunes as I have not had the support or justice I needed to make it work safely and securely.
Every penny my end with no expenses taken out was to go to Cystic Fibrosis as I made Jodie a promise that I would do all I could to help raise money for a cure. Family values and children should always come first. Sadly from where I am sitting Mothers and Children are getting a very raw deal!

On a happy note here is how you make a Easter Bunny Fairy door for your garden with your child out of self drying clay
FAIRY DOOR HOW TO MAKE
If you are a struggling Mummy please leave a message as we all need a little help to get through these bad times. The UK is often overlooked as the rich Country but believe me there are plenty of Mothers and Children that need support in the United Kingdom.
Thank you London Mums for letting me blog.
I used to work in Gilbert’s house for Haskoll Architects. I really enjoyed living in Pimlico, Putney and Wimbledon. Back then I used to travel and dated a New Zealand guy. Eight years of no ring on the finger and I decided to quit. My sister convinced me to go to Dorset for a weeks holiday and fixed a date with the local singer. We are still together 11 years later and have a little girl. I have always been creative. Nan used to make peg dolls with me and left me her old sewing box, which I treasure. When I worked in a pub in Hastings I made my own clothes. In my twenties I did a doll making course in Brighton and tried to start my own business. I managed to get some handmade brooches into a Covent Garden shop. But decided to stick to secretarial work, which brought in a regular salary. I adore taking photographs so when my little girl was born I decided to take a local photography course. My tutor was so impressed with my Photoshop skills he asked me to teach him some of my techniques. When I showed my Mother in law the Victorian style dress I made for my little girl she said why don’t you have a go at making a Butterfly costume. Well the rest is history. Butterfly Lullaby was born. Butterfly Lullaby is my fairy book, album and Trademark. The Mark Jermin Stage School are the characters in my story and my partner created all the songs. The book was launched at the Dylan Thomas Centre back in March 2007. It was truly beautiful. You can view the little fairies dancing on You Tube. Robin Stevens who you may know from Rosie and Jim is on my Butterfly Lullaby website reading my fairy story Colour me a fairies wish. We were going to do personalised children’s stories together. But shiny things attract gremlins. The trick is to keep going and never give up. My little girl danced to our song Butterfly Lullaby at the Enchanted Manor in front of famous fairy artist Josephine Wall back in October 2009. My little girl and I love making art and craft videos, which we hope to share with London Mum’s. The one thing I adore about London is the way you just fit in. The City is full of different cultures, which makes it an interesting and friendly place to live. I am currently trying to scrapbook postcard my family history. Does anyone know anything about the family history on the old LeFevres department store in Canterbury which is now Debenhams. My Nan’s Grandmother’s name was LeFevre and she lived in Bayswater. Nan was an orphan so we are trying to uncover the hidden ghosts!
