Expect the Unexpected...

Awwwww I,m gutted, not one of you managed to sort my little problem out, not ONE of you..!!!!  So looks like its Plan B...

What is Plan B you might ask..???

Well, when I come up with it I'll let you know...!!!

Sooooooooo on to today. Fabulous kids workshop today. Their ages ranged from 5 to 13 yrs and they all got along brilliantly. Here they are at the start of the class.

We had great fun choosing which of the Downloads to put where. We painted, we doodled, we drew vines, yes thats right vines..!! , we cut, we stuck, we coloured, we covered, we punched, we outlined, we ribboned and we ate chocolate..ha ha .. Heres some of the kids at the end.


This is what arrived just as the kids workshop was starting.

Oh yes, its the 7gypsies order.... I had a heads up because Shane, our dinky little delivery guy rang me at some ungodly hour this morning to tell me. Now its a bit unfair of me just to show you the boxes and I should really show you the insides as well, but I forgot to take some pics, sorry... I,ll just have to leave you in suspense a while longer..

Well I have an early morning start tomorrow. Up at 6 to go collect Claudine from the airport. Our Em's is coming with me so that means giggling, gossiping and singing very badly at the top of our voices. Just what you need at that time of day..

I heard some extremeley sad news today about one of my ladies the lovely P. I just want you to know you are in my thoughts.I hope you now find peace in head and heart. Your journey is now just beginning again from when you put it on hold and I,m sure thats what he would wish for you as well. Don't worry about your classes, I,ve sorted it and I,ll save you the kits., you. Sending you love and a guardian angel to help you through xx

So onto a journal page as usual...

Enjoy xx

I would so love you to come out to Western Mass to teach some classes... sadly, I might be your only student :o) I've been trying to find a place that my daughter can go to create and learn with other children but no one sees any benefit in classes round these parts.
