Sunday Stuff




After half a week at work it's nice to look back and reflect on the stuff you did on the weekend - lazy coffee breaks in the sunshine, a spot of gardening, some bargain op-shopping, some time to play with the family,and a touch of craft!

Why Am I Still Doing Homework!

The weekend comes and you want to get into your craft. I want to be making my new bookmarks. They are fun and I like the way they are coming together. But then I get the note from school. Can the parents for next week (this is Friday afternoon we get the notes):
1. Press some flowers and leaves,
2. collect items from around the house to be used for wind-chime making,
3. find something orange for show and tell,
4. get your child to do their reading, their writing practice and their math homework, and
5. Go take some photos for various line, texture, colour and shape examples, print them out, and get your child to bring them in for a presentation. And this is only grade 1!

So below see my homework pics.

BIDM Saturday Fun



Well, yesterday was fantastic at the BIDM (Brisstyle Indie Designers Market) at Hamilton. This was a wonderful event with a magnificent attendance and so many great artisans with their wares on show. It was inspiring, exciting, great fun meeting so many peaople, and a bit (really a lot) exhausting. I was so grateful for the feedback from those that visited my store. I have lots of ideas for the future and now I want to get into more crafting - after a short rest of course!
