this & that, here & there

A bit of deja vu - this is Mr8 reading Tintin. Something both his parents used to do. He's really keen on these classic comics. :-)
Couple of layouts...


Old papers of course! I'm so out of the loop when it comes to the "new" stuff in scrapbooking these days.   Anyway, it's good to get these in the album.  The kids do love looking through it and they don't care about the techniques or fancy papers.

Coromandel to Rotorua

Made this for Roo - it's a journal cover.

Outside of journal cover

Dressed as a pavlova for a conference dinner my colleagues and I went to. We won a prize! I felted the kiwi fruit decorations on our dress and made the other smaller kiwis out of Fimo.

Artist in residence

Miss4 is a prolific artist.  Almost everyday she comes home from daycare with a clutch of drawings, paintings, box constructions or something she has created.  I've given up trying to keep them all!  Which makes me feel a bit stink, but there is no scrapbook that could contain them.

She loves to colour and draw.  She also likes to make cards with me, especially when it involves using punches or stamps.  I've given her a bunch of stash that I no longer use and she keeps that in her cubbies in her room.

Her drawings from daycare often have writing on them from the teacher who asks her what the picture is about.  Some of them are hilarious!  The picture she's drawn for those fund raising calendars involves the family taking Mr8 to the Dr.  Mr8 is coloured green because he's feeling sick. :-)

Her depictions of her family can be quite amusing.  Mostly we are round things with facial features and suitable appendages.  I feature quite a lot in her drawings.  She often borrows my notebook during our church meetings to do drawing.  The other week I told her off for some misbehaviour and she responded by drawing this "angry" mummy picture in my notebook.
