Our lovely kitchen table, where so much happens, and where so many memories are built. It yet again reminded me, because of the contrast in our table from last night's birthday dinner setting:
complete with the beautiful runner that Angel sent me, to the after school craft-iness it took on today.
I'd determined they wouldn't come out of school and zombie-fie in front of the telly. I don't know about other children, but it often results in grumpy children in our house, whereas if we get doing something, we have a brilliant time. So they each did something.
My 8 year old began to paint his money box, a Christmas pressie (once we actually managed to get into the box - boy, they make it hard!).
My eldest designed a rabbit, inspired by the rabbit I bought a little while back, and which I've blogged about already.
Said rabbit is coming along nicely.
We've now chosen and cut the fabric, and more pictures to follow.
And my 10 year old... Well, inspired utterly by Simone's wonderful post on Linden Grove, just look what she set to and did.
Me? Well, I've been busy today. A peek.
More to follow. But yes, last night was fab.
Thank you for all your comments about the IKEA/cath Kidston box. I'll try and do a mini tute when I make the next one and post pics for those that asked. It really is simple - just watered PVA and tissues.
