    It's her 21st and we've bought a silver mechanical pencil which is being engraved.

    She's an artist so wanted something like - keep on creating, love Freya x

    We only have 28 characters to work with but the above quote just doesn't sound right, especially coming from a 1 yr old.

    Please help, if I search google for creating quotes I get all sorts of rubbish back :(

    Thanks! X

    Thanks MrsNovBaby! :)

    Anyone else got any ideas?

    What about something like 'never stop creating, love Freya'

    Or is that still too odd?

    Thank you so much :)

    We were thinking of a little quote or poem but with so few characters it's hard :(

    to quote Oscar Wilde:

    "The secret of life is in art" which is 22 characters, not including spaces, so you'd have room to add Freya's name and maybe a kiss?
