I'm quite excited !

It started with a phone call...
Then some searching on Pinterest....


Then there was a trip to Bargain City...( thank you for telling me about the wonderful stocks of craft supplies at the BC at Chermside Markets, Margaret B...it was a real treasure house!) 


On the way home there was a stop at our local council library...


The phone call was from my niece to say that my great niece Lucy ( who will be 5 next Feb) had asked if she could go to Aunty Maria's place without mummy or Max (little brother), and do craft. My niece was flummoxed as Lucy has never wanted to go to anyone's place on her own before. 
So next Tuesday, Miss Lucy is being dropped off for a morning with me! That is the nice thing about this little family moving from the Sunshine Coast to 2 suburbs away from us...it's much easier to drop over. 
I had given away all my children's art/crafts  book when I retired but then I remembered Pinterest...so with a few ideas from there plus 'tried and true' old favourites from my classroom days, Lucy and I will be making some decorations and little presents.

How lovely for you and Lucy. Sharing time together will be great for this little girl, she obviously trusts you and enjoys you're company. Have a wonderful time together and the same goes for Christmas for you all in QLD. See you next year.

Hi Maria, that's so sweet. Lucy will thoroughly enjoy herself too. You've got lots of lovely crafting things ready ... her eyes will light up !

We used to do that with our darling grand-daughters when they'd come and stay for a little while. Just recently we had one of them visit (16 y.o. now) and we had a few days' of painting together which was just fabulous.

Have fun together :D)
