Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
As you all know Sydney my niece loves crafting, when ever she sees me it's always "Ali can we make something, please". I have been promising her a play with buttons for weeks, at half term when we have loads of time! Yuk half term is here, Rachie is off sick and we are stretched again. But a promise is a promise......
These have all been made by Syd (aged 5½)..... ok yes there are bits of glue showing, and the ribbon is not straight, the card is cut skewie....but I think they are amazing. It took her all morning to pick the buttons, and I can prove that......
....she mixed all the colours in my button tray!!!! Thankfully I only let Syd have 1 of my 18 button trays, I will have to get that sorted today for it's trip to Glasgow Hobbycrafts next week.
After lunch we sat together and glued the buttons together, I was allowed to pass them to her while she glued them in place, I was glad to be of help! When I left for Paris I asked if she would like a prezzie on my return - "googlie eyes please." Nice. For Christmas I had given her a French book all about animals made from buttons or that should read boutons, they had googlie eyes. She loves this book and Bev tells me she takes it to bed with her most nights. Neither of us can read the French instructions but both of us are fluent in following photos!!!

....and her bee clip. I had great fun Syd, thanks for letting me join in.
We have added a selection of "share" buttons to the blog. They look like this and you can find them at the bottom of each post towards the right hand side. Please use and share!
Hope you are all enjoying crafting this half term.
