From paper field journals to blogs on crafty adventures with my two little girls…
I found a pretty floral sketch pad and gave it to Grace at the end of her first year at big school (she is not yet 5 and I can’t quite believe she has finished her first year!). I thought we could use it to draw, write and stick in our adventures over the next few weeks – memories of summer. Grace was so excited when I gave it to her and declared it as her field journal! It reminded me that I have been thinking of creating a blog for some time! Sharing all the fun messy sticking, painting, mixing and making I love to do with my two little girls. Charting my successes when I have created the perfect famous five type day and we crack open the ginger beer to the disasters when the ‘little girls’ are not on track with my Enid Blyton efforts!!!
My kitchen shelves, once the top of a huge welsh dresser (now bottomless!), are groaning with the weight of jam jars, boxes and pots. These little jars of promise contain ribbon, tissue paper, bits of old string, stamps and everything else in between. All just waiting to be turned into something magical! So I hope that some of the adventures I put on this site inspire you and I would love to hear how they go! Any new ideas would be welcome too! Kirsty X
