It is with my greatest pleasure that I am announcing the birth of my daughter, Gemma! She's born the 25 November, she's cute, healthy and wise (at least for the moment...). I am not able to express with words the happiness that Gemma brings amongst us!!
In Italian, "Gemma" means both the "gem" of a flower and "precious stone": we have chosen this name in order to give a good augury to our little one, to wish her to blossom as a beautiful flower and to show to the world her preciousness.
And in order to welcome Gemma, I have prepared a certain amount of bombonnières (it is a tradition in Italy to give a little gift box with some sugared almonds inside to the family and friends) with an heart-shaped box, with hand stamped her name upon (I made a little hand carved rubber stamp). I have added also a little felt smiling heart to be used as a pin. And, if you'd like to make the same bombonnière for your child, you can find here a pattern for the hearth-shaped box and for the felt heart!
