An Award for Creativity


Oh ladies you are doing me proud!  You really are.  Not only is my swap going well with loads of people joining in the apron fun, but I have just posted my 200th post.  And if that isn't enough, since installing the followers button a couple of weeks ago I have now topped 100 followers!  How jolly exciting.

Now I have been given a Kreativ Blogger Award, by Anjie at Pop Pom Emporium. I have to name seven creative things I have done. I think I will show you seven creative projects I've worked on during the school holidays.  If you would like this award for yourself, please take one with you.  You'll find it in my side bar.


First up we have my 51 finished Grannies... 


A little pile of crochet flowers...

Some new beginnings of Grannies...

Very nicely sorted ribbons, braids and laces...

No.2's tapestry has been turned into a lavender bag...

I helped No.2 make this wonderful pincushion, and then she gifted it to me...

I had fun patternmaking some teddy clothes patterns for the girls to sew clothes...


That's about as good as it gets over the holidays I'm afraid.  Yes I do count putting the ribbons on card as creative.  I do because it took jolly ages to do and my thumb was so rubbed raw from the ribbons passing along it.

My girls are back to school and kindy on Monday.  I'll miss them being around but I guess it would be good to get this house under control again.  Well until they get home at three anyway.  Oh OK, I know I'm kidding myself here!  Our house is never under control.  Right now we have three bedrooms out of order with renovations and are living with stuff all over the place.  Our bed is in the lounge, I have a train set at the end of it, nine doors stacked up against the wall, chests of drawers as you come in the front door, plumbing bits surrounding the dining table, and horrid little piles of stuff in every available bit of space. Still I can cope with this.  I will create instead of clean.  OK no change there really. 

If you would like to join in The Great Apron Swap 2010, please go to the post below.  There you will find all you need to know.  I'd love to have you join!

For now I must go and find No.3 an activity.  Have a great day!

Crafting is a great way of maintaining your sanity in the midst of renovation chaos.
I'm sorry I have to pass on the apron swap...just too many irons in the fire right now.
What is your school calendar like? Here in the southern USA, school is roughly mid-August until the end of May (usually up until Memorial Day, the last Monday in May). There's a two-week break at Christmas, and week-long breaks in the fall and spring, along with a day or two here and there for lesser holidays or teacher workdays.
