Blackboard Workshop

The next workshop for the week was the creation of a very unique blackboard! The kids had to paint the form of their blackboard leaving a border all around to be painted in their choice of colour! When that was all dried ( the hairdryer came in handy here) they were able to decorate it as they wished with all sorts of glittery and sparkly things!    The kids in action!

jungle Jess

Today I want to take you on a "sneak peak " of my youngest sons' bedroom! ?   He's really into animals. Big and small. He can watch a colony of ants at work for hours. He wants to be a biologist and spend his whole day observing LIFE!

That's why when I asked how he would like me to decorate his room he said ,"Jungle" ! Well my mural is more like a forest but he says it's great. That's what counts right

There are a pair of eyes in the tree trunk..........

Even the lamp ( created by my clever husband) has beasties on it!

Here's a little peek of what I've been up to lately with my French association AtelierdeBeaumont. This was my stand at the forum of " Associations" or "clubs" if you like. It's a place where you can present what you do!

And to attract people to the stand I made little ribbon bracelets with whoever wanted to give it a go! With so many different ribbons and combinations it was quite fun!

Look at this cute little tutu skirt I just found for 40 euro centimes!!!! Now how can you beat that?
It's not one made with love and care that you'ld find on Etsy but probably in a sweat shop somewhere in China ! Is there any morality in this? Maybe I should be taking the challenge!
