I would like to share with you all that my lovely daughter-in-law has just rung,and she has started her labour.
This is my 1st grandchild (I want at least 8...)
I am feeling incredibly excited,and a bit tearful.
I wanted to give her something special as a present,and found a studio in Brighton,(on the seafront) who do plaster casts of bumps,hands,babies' hands+feet...any part of your body...(!) (Yes,those too) but the price for a bump was £400.You can have them made into wall plaques,fruit bowls....Too much dosh for me...Should it really cost that much,does anyone know anything about this service? Perhaps it's worth looking into.I think it would be a good addition to Lewes' shopping pleasures.What do you think?

And this isn't a plug before you ask...I am a bone fida member of the Lewes Silly Brigade and a Tiger Girrrllll....But it seems awfully expensive to me....Check it out.Put Brighton Body Castings into Google.It's the one under the arches on Brighton Seafront.

Congratulations E Bayer.
If you google it loads of sites tell you how to do it.
I bet if you asked at the framing shop in the high street they would point you in the right direction ....
maybe you do it they frame it only plaster of paris after all
just as a note garden center at kingston do a stainless steel picture fram with loads of cut outs ie 1st day week month year etc holds great memories.

Hesketh's Potters in Lansdown Place offer the same service, but locally (probably cheaper too).
By the way... congratulations!

Awww thanks...Hesketh Potters,really?? Well,I'll check them out then.Just wish I'd got it together earlier for the bump caste...Too late now...Anyway,found a place that supplies kits,castes,paints and frames for a fraction of the price...
But i feel this a rather specialised field and it would be a Blue Peter jobby if I had anything to do with it...But a caste of the new babas' hands and/or feet would be a nice touch.
Waiting by the phone for news,Thinking back to when I had his Dad...Shucks!!
