I’m busy today getting ready for a weekend away.
I’m heading up north (somewhere near Pitlochry, Scotland) for a family get together, it’s a big year for significant birthdays and wedding anniversaries so we decided a weekend away together would be a great way to celebrate.
So here are yesterdays creative projects and hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to keep up the creative activities while I’m away.
On Friday I spent the day helping out at the primary school where my mum works. They were having a “Green Day”, they had a fair with lots of fun activities for the kids (I was roped into painting faces) and afterwards all the kids spend the rest of the day in the school gardens planting and learning about the environment. Lots of fun was had by all.
Aside from painting creepy crawlies/flowers on the faces of dozens of children, my creative activity of the day was more necklace making!
Some nice long ones;
I also took a few pictures when I was out walking the hound with Wee Bro;
Wow, the hot sunny weather just doesn’t seem to be going away!
It has distracted me a bit from blogging though, but I’m sure I can be forgiven as I’ve still been making pretty things.
Thursdays creative activity was making these two lovely necklaces;
They were prizes for a eco/green themed raffle at the school my mum works at.
Recently lots of my paintings and other creative projects have been a bit brighter and child friendly, lots of robots, dinosaurs, coloured beads, fun things. They are fun to create and I guess it reflects whats on my mind just now. I’ve been spending lots of time with my lovely wee cousin. She’s six, she’s fun. She likes beads and flowers and robots and dinosaurs. She is waiting very patiently for her new little brother to be born and we’re all hoping he’ll be healthy.
I like brightening her day with my creations.
