Day 65

Make, Give, Contribute, Challenge. 1 year, 100 creative challenges. 16/100 complete.

Today was a lovely mix-y kind of day. A morning full of 4 little lovelies – bus rides, park play and library then this afternoon a chance to craft, chat and chill. I met the lovely, crafty, blogger Deb (see her comment day 31 – I think to link to her blog) for an afternoon at the Addington Co-op Cafe – all fair trade and lovely vibes. She brought crochet and 2 gorgeous girls and I brought felt buttons that will become brooches and we had fun. This is set to become a monthly thing for anyone who wants to craft and catch up so I’ll give you a heads up next time.

Felt Button Brooches

Sadly I left one of my little felt hearts there – probably on the floor so I can only hope it is a treat for someone who finds it!

Here is my ‘work’.

Little Master 1 caught my attention this evening with his own delights. He carried around an empty clear dental floss case with his own little ‘treasure’ inside it – a small stone. He also liked the look of the cotton reels I had out as well.

On Thursday and Friday at Playcentre we made our own pillow case covers and this gorgeous one is Master 3’s effort. Now I just need to iron it to heat set the textile paint – finishing is such hard work!

Master 3's Masterpiece

I think I’ll continue with my felting tonight just because I really do need some things for the present box and it’s so quick and after and afternoon of talking creative endeavours I have to continue!

I also need to check the challenge status and make sure that I have a couple sorted in my head for next week. Until then remember Master 3’s tip for cleaning your bike – ride it through the sprinkler and my tip there is much beauty in little things so open your eyes and look….
