A wee bit of homework if you fancy for The Little Book of Wishes-
I added teeny-tiny words from old books to my book.
You will get a print out of the words included in your kit but if you fancy adding your own and don’t mind chopping them out … I say go for it … it’s amazing how words leap of a page and talk to you once you start… be warned it’s very addictive!! Cuddle them up in a wee box or bag and bring them along on the day.
