I used my circle craft punch to make some smaller tags after seeing the idea in an article from Heleen (from Rubyinthedustdolls blog) in World Sweet World magazine. I used embroidery thread for the string and had a lovely time cutting, pasting and stamping my tags. My toddler loved doing some stamping too so that was a bonus.
Something else I felt like doing today was playing around with beads after seeing a post yesterday on the Prudent Baby website about making beaded necklaces www.prudentbaby.com/2010/02/jaime-and-jacindas-homeschooling-fun.html. I really liked the idea of making necklaces and bracelets with my toddler so we could do some crafting together. I found the most amazing treasure trove shop "Uncle Black Beetle's" Tea and Craft shop on Otumoetai Road in Tauranga absolutely stuffed full of beads and all the other stuff you need to make your own jewellery. They offer classes too so I would love to rope a few pals into coming along one Sat morn for a few hours of creative fun. I bought some big wide hole wooden beads for Amelie and she had fun threading them onto some string. I found this lovely skirt at the Red Cross store when I was at the Mount today so I made this little yellow bracelet to go with it- it was really enjoyable making it and so satisfying!
Funnily enough I saw on tinyhappy tonight that Melissa also had a bead day making some beautiful necklaces. And Clare at Greenvalley crafts wrote a post the other day showing a lovely beaded heart artwork.
And finally for my yellow day I bought a beautiful "sunshine" flower as my toddler called it :)
By the way I didn't realise that my blog settings were set so that only people using blogger could comment on my blog- I've changed it now so anyone can write a comment :) Thanks, I really enjoy reading them!
