I came across this beautiful little space and decided to turn it into a cozy little nook to inspire kids to read in our new library. Using a woodland theme I choose children's book characters that would suit the setting. I had so much fun planning and placing these characters.
I have the best job in the world! This month I got to wiggle my 'creative toes' when painting some murals for our new library space... a task I took on with great joy as an opportunity to revel in my favourite children's books as well as painting on a grand scale. The first of these was inspired by Harry Potter.
I am very excited about the upcoming arrival of my brother's first child. I am somewhat lacking in materials at the moment I ended up creating this mobile by hand out of felt. I has a music box inside the top and spins.
My mum and I made these cute flower tea cosies as gifts for various friends. Mum was the expert knitter and I made the flowers. They are super easy and super cute!
Instructions on how to make your own can be found here.
After chatting about creating this kids teepee a few times with my friend, I finally just decided to do it. Made out of a queen size sheet it was so easy and only took an evening to make. It's the first time I've ever applied what I did in trigonometry! My maths teacher was right!
This year we were inspired to brighten up our school a little and took on the mammoth task of painting a few rather large white walls. We decided a Dr. Seuss painting was what was needed and here is the results of a couple of terms painting.
This weekend we celebrated my beautiful Godson's 1st Birthday.
His very clever mummy and I put together a Very Hungry Caterpillar themed party. You can find some of the printable templates below.
.I've always had a fascination with mobiles... in fact I think if I was an artist I could spend years creating mobile sculptures. I think it's something to do with their graceful movement giving the illusion of defying gravity and how they change depending on where you stand and look at them. I created this mobile for my godson's 1st birthday! Despite the obvious ropes these balloons look weightless, colourful and full of joy!
This was soooo easy to make! 1 hour and it was done... cute too!
My name is Sally and I love to make and create new things and share them with others... particularly my pint size friends & family.
