Ellie got a little bored part way through and went surfing (sounds like a plan, belle!) and Lauren was so busy sifting through a box of goodies which I gave her. Its funny how stuff I bought a year ago is just not something I might use now. Which gave me an idea...... hold on! The kids who come around for tea with Ellie always ask to make cards or wee projects. I love this becuase it inspires Ellie to have a go. She makes the most wonderful cards and although not perfectly cut (she can't use scissors properly - yet!) she is beaming with her productions, as I!! Lauren and Glenn always go home with a hand made project of sorts and just about any kid who spies the craft den simply love what they might go home with!
Cue Technique Tuesday - a mini after school club we are holding in our home after christmas. You will have heard the name Technique Tuesday before - its a great site dedicated to crafting. As Tuesdays are pretty much a free day for Ellie and I plus the fact these kids will be taught new techniques... we are going for it and have nicked tha name into the bargain. When I see the delight in kids faces with simple techniques such as inking edges or using corner rounders, it makes my hobby that little bit more humble. Now all my spare bits and bobs plus various papers and embellies will be put to good use. Less the fact that none of them are touching my Basic Grey!!!! Oh no!
Happy Sunday xx
