Normal Service is resumed...

Sunshiny 'me' shot to show you this lovely denim dress / top / smock thingy - i love the frilly stand up collar. The grey cardigan is new - not colourful, i know but sometimes a little sobriety can be calming. Craft days with the SmallFish - an amazing painted collage mobile. The square item is an old threads box - with hanging tubes cut from an old toilet roll. I love this x

Then there is the birth of 'Arthur' which was very much like watching a caterpillar emerge from a cocoon ..... a toilet roll (staple craft supply) a piece of card and some 'deatils' (as SmallFish calls them) transform themselves before our very eyes...
The Pipe cleaners were my idea (i like to take a small bit of credit where i can. I can't have my daughter outshine me in all aspects of colourful crafting)


And look how 'Arthur' turned out? Stunning! and fluttering his way through the vegetable trays.

The cost was pence.
The fun was a-plenty.
The organisation was spontaneous.
The pride was IMMENSE.
Got a crafty child?.... have a go! tis so easy and fulfilling x

I love it when children are being so creative. I think all children have creativity in them, and it's wonderful to see that creativity blossom!
