These two. The boy dotes on her. She only has to pull a face and he's in fits of giggles. She's very into her skipping this week and as soon as she's home from school she's out there with her rope or the hula hoop Nanna gave her. So much so... Devvie and I are talking about getting an adult rope to join her. Just talking about mind. I'm also thankful the weather stayed nice for her school trip - the next day was abysmal.
***This picture holds lots of smiles for me. The postcard on the wall is from Natasha and makes me smile whenever I look at it. The canvas is just one I've had laying around for ages and I finally feel in the mood to do something with. So I've been prepping with clear Gesso this week and sanding. It's stroke-able and soft now ;) The French magazine is from Rebecca who very kindly sent it as collage fodder - it's gorgeous! And the spiky teazles - a gift from my lovely Craig when I mentioned in passing last week that they would be pretty to draw. This might not seem much to someone not in the know but he suffers terribly from hayfever. Getting these for me involved him wading through waist high grasses with his trusty secateurs. That's love that is. More precious than the biggest bunch of flowers in my eyes.
The various arty projects I'm taking part in. I had my Corpse back so will blog that later, I'm loving the collaboration with the WW girls, Summer of Colour and ICAD is really proving eye-opening as well. Love my little, ever growing, stack of cards!
