Hello all. I think a lot of us made the best of Julia's early posting last week and it certainly made a difference to the callers that called in here. There were lots of new faces calling by so I'd like to say thank you so much to you all for your lovely comments.
So? What is on my desk this week?
If you had read my post yesterday you will know what my Tuesday was filled with so today I am sharing my table full of my paper crafting with you...
I've printed off background pics to use for my little book like the one Annette sent me.....I say 'like' cos mine really is nothing like the gorgeous one she sent me that you can see here on her blog but mine has taken the design of her book and ran with a head full of ideas I'd got to make little books for my grandies to play with.
I've used jungle background papers to make the book with and attached double sided laminated animals that I've attached to ribbon so the little ones can move them from one section to another in the book and make up stories as they play....and at the end of the day the little animals can be tucked in the little pockets so the book can be closed up and tied.
I thought these could be taken away on holidays with them to play with. They can be opened up and tied into place while playing, the animals wont get lost and they can use their imaginations to make up stories.
Clever eh? :-)
Here are my next ideas in the making.....Fairyland, a zoo, a house, a farm, and bugs and insects. My mind has been doing overtime as you can see so thank you Annette for sewing the seeds and sharing your instructions as to how to make the little book....it certainly caused us a few giggles in getting me to understand how to get the folds right but I've got there in the end. :-)
The other snap I'm sharing with your today is this one...
Next Tuesday Jo and I are booked into a workshop to 'make a bag' that a friend is starting to teach...we are being used as her guinea pigs! :-)
We have cut out all the pieces of fabric ready for the day so just maybe next week this pile might look rather more like a bag...I love the colours of my fabric and am really looking forward to the day's fun.
Thanks for calling by today and leaving such lovely comments. I will do my best to pop by yours to say hello as soon as I'm able but I really hope you all have a great week while you're waiting for my visit :-)
