I spotted this beautiful hair clip organiser at the impeccably styled home of the Aunt-Who-Thinks-Of-Everything. It looks like something one could make …
And, that would be my 2,000 words on craft for the week. Enjoy!
I love the Italian proverb on these gorgeous little ice cream cups: After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box. Says a lot.
What I loved even more was the ice cream itself. Miss Six had American Chocolate – which we all enjoyed. I had Pistachio – which we all enjoyed. Miss Nine finished her Carmel & Hazelnut Gelato before I could introduce her to the joys of taxation (‘Mama Tax’).
Have a great Friday! If it’s not so great, ice cream helps….
Craft is something that other people do better than me.
I’m mostly appreciative of other people’s efforts (although please don’t send me any toilet roll dollies) and I know a winner when I see it.
It being spring carnival / school fete season, I thought I’d share two little projects which you might find inspiring. Since a hot glue gun is a weapon in my hands, I won’t pretend to know how to make these items, but will depend upon the picture-being-worth-a-thousand-words saying. So, my four thousand words on craft this week are as follows:
With thanks to readers Lee (for the colouring kit) & Joanna (for the purse-sized notebook).
I recently went on excursion with year ones (as in 6 & 7 year olds) to Brisbane’s GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) and noticed this poster flashed up on the screen (from another cohort of children, not our year ones). Children had been invited to draw whatever they liked on sheets of card and they were put up on display.
Give the kid a prize for combining humour with scientific acumen.
PS. How are the ‘green cars’ Toyota was building us for our $35M grant?
Being Book Week in Australia and all, some of us have been obsessing about how to dress our kids for the school fancy dress parade. Some people, like The Auntie Who Thinks of Everything, go so far as to make props.
As I’m severely allergic to craft, and could only bring myself to make a swag (comprising stick with tea towel tied to the end of it) for one of my children’s props today (Miss Nine went as pretty-boy, Huckleberry Finn), I thought I’d share Auntie’s more inspired creation.
The lid flips open and the interior has been tastefully decorated in fully fledged fairy style. Awesome work,
If anyone has photos from Book Week or special crafty ideas they’d like featured on the blog, contact me through the comments box and I’ll see what I can do.
Happy fairy hunting, and good reading!
