Blog break

Below is a fab nest made of scrunched up brown paper stuck to a circular piece of card filled with paper straw which was made by my son last year at Kindy, how much do we love our creative teachers?!! The eggs were crafted by my fair self using polystyrene shapes covered with tissue paper, gesso and acrylic. I never really know what to do with those poly things, they always seem so slippery to work with but are all the rage here, hearts, animals, flowers, you name it, they've got it.

I've decided to have a Blog break as the kids are now on holiday and I'm involved in the local holiday programme which will put paid to any creative endeavours over the next couple of weeks. I expect to be weeping and wailing with homesickness by the end of it as my part is all about New Zealand and we all know where I'd rather be right now, sigh... My lake of Zürich canvas has been rescued by a little bit of snipping and the fish has been released to swim another day. In it's place is the start of a rather impressive Sir Galahad bloke on a horse ready to fight the world (J stopped yet again by the 'big boys' because apparently he's too tall to still be at Kindy!!) Courage seems to be fast becoming my word for the year and I didn't even need to go looking for it, how about that. So I wish you all a great Easter break and see you in a bit, enjoy!

It's good to impose a self-inflicted break. Such discipline on your part. I just disappear with no explanation sometimes.... I will try and do better and announce my departures. You are so Swiss. rofl Big hug! Happy Easter, Mate!

No break for me! As soon as Easter is over, I am working on COMPLETING your cigar box! While looking for some little enclosures for your tag, I found scraps and bits for gluing onto the box. I mailed your tag today so you wouldn't have to wait on it.

Happy Easter, Dear Friend.
